The pavilion of the Muslim Council of Elders at the Rabat International Book Fair warmly welcomed His Excellency Mohamed Mehdi Bensaid, the Moroccan Minister of Youth, Culture, and Communication, accompanied by a high-level delegation. 

This visit occurred on the opening day of the 29th edition of the fair, which kicked off today and will run until May 19 in Rabat, the capital of Morocco.

His Excellency Mohamed Mehdi Bensaid toured the Muslim Council of Elders' pavilion at the Rabat International Book Fair, commending the high-quality publications by Al Hokama Publishing that focus on Islamic and human thought. 

He expressed his appreciation for the significant efforts of the Muslim Council of Elders under the leadership of His Eminence Prof. Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, emphasizing that such efforts enhance knowledge, enrich human thought, and promote values of dialogue, tolerance, and coexistence.

The Muslim Council of Elders features a dedicated pavilion at the Rabat International Book Fair, presenting over 220 publications in five languages. This includes 22 new titles that delve into significant intellectual and cultural issues. The pavilion is set to organize a series of cultural and dialogue sessions led by a distinguished panel of scholars, thinkers, writers, intellectuals, academics, and university professors. 

These discussions cover topics such as the management of verbal heritage in contemporary times, identity peace within the Muslim world, East-West interactions, the notion of peace during the early European Renaissance, and the future of publishing and translation in humanitarian fields.
