    ICESCO-Libya collaboration: announcement of opening of Center for Translation of Meanings of Holy Qur’an

    9 May 2024

    The International Conference on Translation of Meanings of Holy Qur’an, which spanned three days, concluded its proceedings on Wednesday, May 8, 2024. The Conference was organized by the Institute of the Holy Quran in Tripoli, Libya, under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development in Libya, and with scientific sponsorship from the Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ICESCO).

    At its close, the Conference announced the opening of a Center for the Translation of the Meanings of the Holy Qur’an, and issued a series of recommendations, chief among which was the call to establish an observatory for translating the meanings of the Holy Qu’ran.

    The closing ceremony saw the attendance of a large number of distinguished officials, scholars, and researchers from Muslim and non-Muslim countries, including Ms. Mabrouka Toghi Othman, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development in Libya, and Mr. Nasr Al-Din Al-Fazani, Minister of Tourism and Traditional Industry in Libya.

    In his speech at the ceremony, Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, ICESCO Director-General (DG), commended Mr. Mohamed al-Menfi, President of the Libyan Presidential Council, for agreeing, during their meeting prior to the Conference, to launch an initiative to establish and fund a center for the translation of the meanings of the Holy Qur’an. Dr. AlMalik then added that the Board of Directors of WICS in Libya had agreed to finance this project as part of its cooperation with ICESCO.

    Moreover, Dr. AlMalik thanked Libya, its leadership, government, and people, as well as the Institute of the Holy Quran in Libya, for organizing this Conference, which serves the Holy Qu’ran by facilitating the understanding of its true meanings for All. The Director-General also emphasized the weight of this responsibility and the challenges it faces, calling in this regard for the establishment of a global institution that rallies the Islamic world and harnesses its significant collective capabilities and resources in service of the Book of Allah.

    At the close of the conference, the speakers praised the meticulous organization of this momentous event and the recommendations that rose from it, which serve the dissemination of more accurate and clear translations of the meanings of the Holy Qur’an, helping non-Arabic speakers understand the Book of Allah correctly. Furthermore, they appreciated the roles of ICESCO and its initiatives in this regard, foremost among them being the “Read it to Understand it” initiative, which aims to confront the pathetic attempts made by some extremists to hurl offense at the Holy Qur’an by burning copies of it.

    At the Ceremony’s conclusion, certificates of appreciation were presented to the participants, and ICESCO DG received a commemorative shield from the Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development of Libya.
