UAE Quran centre opened in Chechnya

Saturday August 27, 2011 08:31:17 AM, WAM

Grozny: A centre for the study of the Quran - under the assistance of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) - has been opened in the Chechen capital city of Grozny.

Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov and UAE Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan inaugurated the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Centre for Holy Quran Memorisation.

Kadyrov said the Islamic centre, the largest of its kind in the North Caucasus region, was named after Sheikh Zayed in recognition of the critical role he played to promote the culture of tolerance, love and peace among people regardless of their race and affiliation.

The centre, built on an area of 40 hectares, includes classrooms, a sports complex, a mosque, and living and dining halls for teachers and students. It would receive 100 male and female students from Chechnya and other neighbouring Islamic countries.

Chechnya was giving significant importance to its relationship with the UAE, he said.

Sheikh Nahyan said the UAE would continue to partner with other countries to serve the humanity and open new horizons for development and progress.
