On Zayed Humanitarian Day - The Muslim Council of Elders: Sheikh Zayed Left a Mark on Global Humanitarian Work

The Muslim Council of Elders, under the chairmanship of His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, affirms that the wise vision and humanitarian principles of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, embodied the message of tolerant Islam aimed at promoting values of tolerance and giving, and disseminating a culture of goodness and cooperation among people. The efforts of the late Sheikh Zayed also left its mark on the field of humanitarian work worldwide.

Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam, the Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Elders, stated that Zayed Humanitarian Day, which falls on the 19th of Ramadan each year, commemorating the passing of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, represents a significant occasion to celebrate and recall the values of tolerance, cooperation, and solidarity, and to promote a culture of giving among members of society, and to establish the principles of humanitarian work as a fundamental cornerstone for building more just and peaceful societies. It is also a reminder of the efforts of Sheikh Zayed whose charitable deeds extended to every corner of the world, making his humanitarian legacy a source of inspiration for current and future generations, and a unique model to be emulated in charitable work.

The Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Elders further explained that the United Arab Emirates, under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has continued following this pioneering approach, making it a beacon of hope for global volunteer and charitable work, supporting the needy and the poor, and promoting values of tolerance, peaceful coexistence, and human fraternity among peoples and nations. This has made the UAE an exceptional model in a world fraught with challenges and conflicts. Abdelsalam also commended the efforts of the United Arab Emirates in providing aid and assistance to the Palestinian people and ensuring the delivery of humanitarian and relief assistance to civilians in the Gaza Strip amid the many difficult humanitarian circumstances and challenges.
