An increased interest towards Islam is present in the world public opinion. Efforts have been paid off to understand Islam; inter-national and national meetings are organized, printed publications and television programs have been carried out in all areas.
Despite these positive information and cultural work, I regret to inform you that in the “Western World” and in some other countries the Islamic opposition - Islamophobia is still continuing.
This antagonistic behaviour and initiatives, originated from the ignorance and fanaticism, targets Muslims and their sacred, mosques, and places of worship and as a result; attacks, violence and destruction is presently ongoing.
For this, to show the reality of peaceful attitude of Islam, I was invited in different parts of the World and organizations; Tokyo, Moscow, Berlin, Rotterdam, Granada, Bonn, Nicosia, London and United Nations, in order to submit papers and answer to the asked questions.
With praise to Allah (c.c.) for letting me to see the translated version of “Islam and Life” in German, Albanian, Italian, Russian and now in English, I pray for all of us for a continuous mercy and forgiveness.
