Social Discourse

We engage in dialogues on social development, seeking to contribute to the well-being of our community by collaborating with various entities. We focus on areas such as coexistence and peace, gender equality, the role of religion and media in promoting tolerance, the youth's role in community building, and the well-being of families and the environment. We aspire to participate with others to explore new ways of promoting peace, unity, and coexistence among followers of different religions and components of society in the UAE.

Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and center your thoughts and deliberation on its exigencies and requirements.
