La Croix reports that during Ramadan the Moroccan government sent 100 theologians into Europe to preach the faith:
The Moroccan government in Rabat announced on Tuesday that it sent 100 theologians into Europe during Ramadan to give religious support to the Moroccan communities.
The Moroccan Ministry of Islamic Affairs stated, in a communiqué, that during the Muslim fast, the theologians (“prédicateurs” in French) were to support the Moroccan communities residing in France, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Germany, Spain and the Scandinavian countries.
According to the same source, “The selection of these ‘ulema’ (theologians) was determined by scientific and objective criteria, including a solid background in sharia, fiqh (Muslim law) and the Koran.”
Note: Fiqh refers to the combination of civil law and canonical law.
The Ministry stressed that the “theologians must concentrate their preaching, during Ramadan, on the relations between Muslims in their everyday lives and their host country, and should give first priority to an explanation of the values of love, tolerance and openness of Islam.”
