The Final Act of the Fourth Iftaa' Forum Entitled "The Role of Islamic Culture in Forming Individuals and




On the occasion of choosing Amman as The Capital of Islamic Culture/2017 by The Islamic Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), the General Iftaa' Department held The Fourth Scientific Forum entitled "The Role of Islamic Culture in Forming Individuals and Societies" on 14/11/2017 in collaboration with Ministries of Education, Culture,  Awqaf and Islamic Affairs and the Supreme Judge Department. 

The generous sponsorship of the Forum by his Royal Highness Prince Ghazi Bin Muhammad was appreciated by the attendants and they remembered the Hashemite efforts as well as the anniversary of the late king Hussein(May Allah have mercy on his soul) in enhancing the values of Islamic culture, which is based on tolerance, through building the modern Jordan, which rests on principles and constants, in addition to showing the bright picture of Islam.

The participants have come up  with the following suggestions and recommendations:

First: The Islamic culture is the spirit of the nation of  divine revelation, connected to the Prophecy of Mohammad and extended through the whole world and for all people. Yet, it is not meant for a certain party, sect, country or geography. On the contrary, the Islamic culture has eliminated all differences while preserving the constants of Islam and the Arab world.

Second: The aforementioned culture highlighted the meaning of freedom, eliminated slavery, protected the poor and depressed reflecting the most advanced concept of culture.

Third: The Islamic culture in Jordan adopts the concept of moderation and the methodology highlighting the bright image of Islam and its tolerant values founded by the Hashemite Family since the constitution of Jordan. In addition, it is linked with the roots of the nation and the Hashemite descendants of the Prophet(Peace be upon him).

Fourth: The Islamic culture in Jordan is compatible with the Islamic religion and the teachings of the Prophets who passed by Jordan. Therefore, this culture has to be applied.

Fifth: The aforementioned culture should be based on innovation that motivates people to make reform and accomplishment, and this can be achieved through enhancing the Islamic cultural programs at all levels: educational, social, political and media.   


Sixth: Calling for continued cooperation amongst institutions entrusted with cultural activities and turning it into fieldwork. This can be done through implementing ideas that touch upon the core function of the afore organizations.

Seventh: Promoting Islamic culture is a joint responsibility that should be shouldered, on the individual level, by every Muslim. On organization level, it should be shouldered by universities, schools, Masjids, libraries, research centers, cultural societies, elite groups and social activities.

Eighth: Increasing cultural awareness, tying it with Islamic values of tolerance, and advancing this culture through institutional partnerships and available means, constitute the safety valve for society, protecting it against extreme views and maintaining its peace and stability.

Nine: Promoting the value of the "Role Model" in the Muslim society, tying it with its deeply-rooted heritage and values, preparing future generations to have a sense of responsibility towards the challenges facing their nation to adapt with the emerging cultural issues on basis of openness and renewability. 

Tenth: Governmental and non-governmental organizations along with all members of society should participate in the advancement of the Muslim nation, and enhancing the true values of Islamic culture in fulfilling the divine command where Allah has enjoined Muslims to deliver the message of Islam by lawful means and in the most correct and  respectable manners. 

Eleventh: Calling upon national institutions to reflect the Islamic-cultural identity of the city of Amman, in particular, and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, in general, addressing future generations through promoting the themes of the Amman Message, the message of tolerace, adopting its values and applying them in everyday life. This is in addition to applying the values embodied in the initiative "Kalima Sawa`" so that we reach safety by creating a society that is conscious, tolerant and accepts the other. And all perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds.
