On behalf of the team in charge of preparing the guide, Dr. El Mostafa Rezrazi delivered a presentation on the guide’s framework, outline, content, preparation approach and completion timeline.

The Committee members provided observations and suggestions regarding the guide’s orientations, objectives and content. This would enable experts to produce a guide that meets the exacting needs and requirements of ICESCO’s Member States and Muslim communities around the world.
