The University of Jordan (UJ) and Jordan Islamic Scholars League on Thursday, February 9, signed an agreement to launch a joint.
The new project, dubbed 'Tanweer' or 'Enlightenment', aimed at providing a correct perception of contemporary intellectual issues.
The agreement was signed by UJ president Prof. Azmi Mahafzah and the League's President Abdulrahman Kilani.
Under the agreement, the two parties will jointly hold academic conferences and seminars at the university premises.
At the signing ceremony, Mahafzah stressed the league's important societal responsibility in leading an enlightening intellectual mobility in Jordan and the region. Mahafzah added that UJ has become a favorable destination for students from various Islamic countries because it promotes the concept of moderate thinking emanating from the main concepts of the Amman Message.
From his part, Kilani thanked UJ's administration for taking the initiative in building bridges of communication and cooperation aimed at the deployment of tolerance and moderation.
Kilani hailed the importance of cooperation with UJ represented by the Faculty of Shari'a.
The signing ceremony was attended by the Dean of the Faculty of Shari'a Prof. Mohammed AlKhatib and Director of Media and Public Relations Department Dr. Suleiman Farajat, and a number of scholars, faculty members and representatives from the two sides.
