            RIYADH: Crown Prince Naif, deputy premier and minister of interior, opened a symposium on “Salafism: A Shariah approach and a national demand,” organized by the Imam Muhammad bin Saud Islamic University here Tuesday and commended its objectives.

            Prince Naif said Saudi Arabia would continue to follow the Salafist ideology and denounced those who create doubts about this moderate Islamic ideology and link it with terrorism and extremism.
"Salafism is rooted in the Qur'an and Sunnah and calls for peaceful coexistence with other faith communities and for respecting their rights," the crown prince said. "We have to stand united against those who launch smear campaigns on Salafism."

He also laid the cornerstone for a number of educational projects worth SR2.3 billion at the university.
Suleiman Abalkhail, president of the university, thanked Prince Naif for opening the event.
“The Kingdom is based on the moderate Salafi ideology,” he said, adding that the Saudi government has been following the teachings of Islam in all its affairs and relations.

He said more than 100 religious experts from around the world would take part in the symposium to discuss 120 research papers on seven core subjects.
This seminar aims to achieve several goals such as shedding light on the doctrinal teachings of the Salafist movement, clear misconceptions about Salafism, clarify the roots of Saudi government regulations and its rightful principles and lastly provide a clear idea about Islam’s approach toward non-Muslims.

The core subjects include Salafism, an approach pursued by the state since its foundation and its connection to Islam; misconceptions about the Salafi approach; the Salafi approach and its connection with the modern religious discourse, the relationship between the Saudi state and the Salafi approach in terms of originality and application; and the link between the Salafi approach and school curricula.

Support for scientific research rooted in Qur’an and Sunnah, symposium told
RIYADH: Support for science and scientists, both financially and morally, is rooted in Qur’an and Sunnah, said professor Saleh bin Mohammed Al-Hassan in his paper: “The Salafist Vision on Backing Science and Scientists.”

            Al-Hassan was one of the academics who presented their papers on the second day of the symposium on Salafism, Shariah and national demand at Imam Muhammad bin Saud Islamic University in Riyadh.
Vice president of the university Ahmed bin Youssef Al-Darwish, in his paper on the doctrine of the righteous ancestor of rulers, argued that the ideal example for ruling is for all Muslims to be under one ruler. Yet, given the complexity of the environment, the diversity of rulers or imams is accepted. He stressed that people need rulers and defying them is banned according to the Qur’an and the Sunnah.

The Salafist approach and its attributes was the theme tackled in another paper presented by Ibrahim bin Nasir Al-Humoud. The most distinctive feature of this approach is that it is divine. He stressed that this divine approach is so obvious that it does not need interpretation. Other important features are thoroughness, moderation and comprehensive approach.
Mahmud Abdelhadi Dasouqi presented a paper on the attributes of the pioneers of the Salafi approach.
Interestingly, the paper presented by Muneerah of Princess Noura University argued that the Salafi doctrine is not specialized in a given Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh). Instead it encompasses all jurisprudence schools. Salafists belong to one faith even if they rely on different jurisprudence doctrines.

She recommended that students should take this into account and publicize this fact. She stressed that the doctrine of the “salaf” came into being in the early days of Islam. Also, Salafism as a concept originated in the second century with the emergence of different groups. She pointed to the stages of the approach and she argued that it went through ups and downs.
The adviser to the university rector, Bandar bin Fahd Al-Sweilm, chaired the sixth session that included four papers.

Rida Abu Shameh from Algeria presented a paper in which he stood up for those who accused Salafism as if it was a takfiri call. He also emphasized that moderation and balance does not mean religion must be left aside. He added moderation and being balanced means the implementation of God's religion in all domains and fields.

Ahmed Bu Ood, a philosopher from Morocco, presented a paper on Salafism, arguing that the insistence of some that Salafism is static is not correct. For him, the source of this impression is twofold. Belittling Salafism is tantamount to belittling Islam itself. The impression that Islam cannot cope with needs of modern human being is one reason. Another reason is the narrow and close understanding of some of those who call themselves Salafists. They demonstrate commitment to the text without being able to reinterpret things.

On Salafi position on extremism, Haya Al-Sheikh presented a paper on dealing with non-Muslims. She demonstrated that Islam was a religion of moderation and tolerance. While she clarified the tolerance of Islam toward non-Muslims, she distinguished between treating non-Muslims in a decent way and allying with them against other Muslims.
Lamya Al-Tawil presented a paper on how the Salafi approach deals with issue relevant to extremism. She clarified that Islam warned against extremism in all its forms.
In the seventh session, Saleh bin Abdullah bin Hamid, head of the supreme council for judiciary, touched on the link between the Salafist approach and the modern religious discourse.

Sheikh Abdurrahman bin Ali talked about the reality of the modern religious discourse in Saudi Arabia. Sheikh Badr Al-Hassan Al-Qasmi presented a paper in which he said the concept “religious discourse” appeared in a non-Islamic environment. He focused on Imam Mohammed bin Abdul Wahab and his focus on fighting dissent. He talked about the call to return to the Qur’an and Sunnah.
Hidaya Ahmed Al-Shash presented a paper on Salafism, its principles and its position toward renewing religion. She recommended that there was a need to spread the proper concept of Salafism and renewal by introducing them in curricula in schools and universities.
