In accordance with an Executive Council express mandate, the Head of The World Federation's Islamic Education department (WF-IE), Shaykh Dr Murtadha Alidina, presented an update report at the ExCo meeting in Karachi on 1 December 2018.
 
 
In this video recording of his report, Shaykh Alidina:
 
  • Presents the principles, taken from the Holy Qur’an and Hadith, which the WF-IE has based its approach on;
  • Summarises the process taken by the WF-IE to investigate and prepare a compilation of the views;
  • Clarifies why it has taken the WF-IE so long to get to this stage;
  • Gives examples of where there are problems in the views;
  • Makes a suggestion for the way forward.

With regard to the next step, the Executive Council decided that Shaykh Alidina should consult senior scholars in Najaf and Qum, including His Eminence al-Sayyid Ali al-Husayni al-Sistani (may Allah protect our scholars), and get guidance on this matter. It was also decided that in the intervening period, the community should be advised to exercise the path of caution and refrain from speakers where there is a risk of division and misunderstanding of the Shi’a Ithna-‘Ashari faith.
