The Grand Imam of Al Azhar has praised the UAE’s role in promoting peace and tolerance.

Dr. Ahmed Al Tayyeb said the Emirates’s leadership is paving the way for world peace. 

The leader of the Islamic seminary in Egypt said the money he received from winning the Human Fraternity Award-Dar Zayed in February would be donated to charity.
