’Basis of Understanding from Thought and Language’ by His Eminence Dr. Mustapha Benhamza on display at the Muslim Council of Elders’ stand at the Cairo International Book Fair 2023
’Great demand for the publication by visitors to the Cairo International Book Fair’
The book ’Basis of Understanding from Thought and Language’ by His Eminence Dr. Mustapha Benhamza, member of the Higher Scientific Council of Al-Azhar and the Muslim Council of Elders and President of the Ulema Council of Oujda in Morocco is available to visitors of the Muslim Council of Elders' stand at the 54th Cairo International Book Fair. The book discusses the significance of focusing on the discrepancy between general awareness and understanding among people in the Islamic world.
Likewise, the publication also explores the effects of misunderstanding spreading throughout society and the hate and hostility that arises from it. Additionally, it covers how to deal with misunderstandings by using a methodical strategy that ensures accurate reading and understanding of scientific and intellectual concerns.
The author mentioned that his inspiration for this work was the current state of miscommunication and understanding among Muslims which troubles him greatly since he is witnessing first-hand how miscommunication is growing, escalating, and ultimately fueling Muslim people's overwhelming hatred for one another. The result of all this is to ignite a fierce competition and a violent conflict which is prevalent in many Muslim countries.
The author appeals to those considering the future of the Muslim world to make an intellectual contribution to understanding, eliminating, and eradicating miscommunication. Additionally, he calls on those with influence to educate people about the gravity and magnitude miscommunication and to persuade them that the Muslim world's future depends on its ability to uphold both its diverse and divisive elements.
The three main topics covered in ’Basis of Understanding from Thought and Language’ are; ‘Scientific Fundamentals of Understanding’, ‘Obstacles to Understanding among Muslims’ and ‘Dysfunctions in reading texts’.
The Council’s participation at the Cairo International Book Fair comes as part of His Eminence the Grand Imam’s vision of promoting dialogue and spreading tolerance and peace globally as well as building bridges of cooperation with people of all backgrounds. The Council’s participation at the Cairo International Book Fair is located in Hall 4 next to the Al-Azhar stand at the Egypt International Exhibition Center.
