Children and youth from Lalla Asmaa Foundation for the Hearing Impaired visit the Exhibition of the Prophet’s Seerah at ICESCO headquarters
24 March 2023
A delegation from the Lalla Asmaa Foundation for Hearing Impaired Children and Youth in the Kingdom of Morocco visited, on Thursday, March 23, 2023, the International Exhibition and Museum of the Prophet’s Seerah and Islamic Civilization, currently housed at the headquarters of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) in Rabat.
Dr. Abdelilah Benarfa, ICESCO Deputy Director-General, received the delegation consisting of 66 children and young people and several supervisors from the Foundation. Dr. Benarafa stated that the Exhibition welcomes the visits of children and youth in order to contribute to introducing them to the civilizational aspects of the Prophet’s Seerah and the values of moderation celebrated by Islam, noting that the Exhibition relies on the use of the latest technology and artificial intelligence techniques to highlight the Prophet’s Seerah in a simplified manner that attracts the attention of visitors.
During the tour, the children and youth received a detailed presentation, in sign language, on the contents of the Exhibition’s various pavilions and sections, which all rely on modern technology to narrate and document the Prophet’s Seerah and take the visitor on a virtual journey to his time. The delegation was also introduced to treasures of civilizational heritage, which highlight the strong link between Muslims and their Prophet and his kith and kin.
The hosting of the International Exhibition and Museum of the Prophet’s Seerah and Islamic Civilization at ICESCO Headquarters in Rabat is the fruit of a strategic partnership between ICESCO, the Muslim World League and the Muhammadia League of Scholars in the Kingdom of Morocco, and is the first stop of the Exhibition outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
