Rabat – Morocco will begin training Tunisian, Libyan and Guinean Imams following a request sent to the Moroccan Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs, said the ministry in a statement on Wednesday.
King Mohammed VI, in his capacity as Commander of the Faithful, agreed in principle to accept the requests to train Muslim Imams (preachers) sent by Tunisia, Guinea (Conakry) and Libya, the same statement added.
The requests sent by the Tunisian religious affairs ministry asked for the training of Tunisian Imams (religious scholars) in Morocco because they believe the Imams would benefit from the Moroccan expertise in training Imams, as well as in building mosques.
Two other requests were received from the religious affairs of Guinea (Conakry) regarding the training of Guinean Imams in Morocco, as well as from the Preaching Institute of the Libyan Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs to benefit from training sessions in the management of religious matters.
After having been informed of these requests, King Mohammed VI gave his orders that the parties be informed of the agreement in principle related to the satisfaction of their cooperation requests.
Accordingly, the minister in charge of the Endowments and Islamic Affairs will examine the different aspects of the implementation of such requests, the same source added.
