    19 May 2024

    Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, Director-General (DG) of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), participated in the International Conference of Science and the Quran held in Tehran, Iran, on May 19, 2024. The Conference was attended by Dr. Jamileh Alamolhoda, Secretary of the Council for the Transformation and Renewal of the National Education System of the Islamic Republic of Iran, along with a distinguished group of officials, scholars, and professors interested in studying the relation between the Quran and science.

    The Conference, hosted by the University of Tehran, is set to discuss eight main themes and present research papers from scholars representing 11 countries. The aim is to encourage scientific studies in universities and international intellectual and scientific research centers focusing on the relation between the Quran and science.

    Following the opening session of the Conference, Dr. AlMalik met with Dr. Jamileh Alamolhoda to explore prospects for cooperation between ICESCO and Iran, particularly in education development, scientific miracles in the Quran, and enhancing women’s contributions to building societies in the Islamic world.

    At the beginning of the meeting, Dr. AlMalik underscored the key elements of ICESCO’s vision and strategic objectives, highlighting its activities, programs, and initiatives. He particularly emphasized efforts in building the capacities and enhancing the skills of women and girls, reaffirming the Organization’s belief in their crucial role in achieving sustainable development in the Islamic world.

    Dr. AlMalik highlighted ICESCO dedication to empowering women and girls through numerous projects, programs, and pioneering initiatives for their benefit, such as declaring 2021 as the Year of Women. The Organization has also launched programs to address school dropouts among girls in its Member States and organized international conferences on women’s participation in sports, as well as women’s leadership in universities. He pointed out that ICESCO’s acknowledgment of the importance of women’s roles is reflected in the fact that nearly 50% of the Organization’s leadership positions are held by women.

    Dr. Jamileh Alamolhoda, for her part, praised ICESCO’s efforts in developing the fields of education, science, and culture in its Member States and its endeavors to qualify women and girls in the Islamic world.
