Interreligious Activities and Initiatives
Strengthening KAICIID’s training Material with Islamic Resources
This initiative will add Islamic evidence and resources to the KAICIID Dialogue Handbook (A Guide by Prof. Abu Nemer “Models of Peace Building and Interfaith Dialogue”)
The problem: The problem in Jordan is not in the Islamic-Christian dialogue, but in the Islamic-Islamic among the sects. Since it is difficult for some Islamic clerics to accept ideas about dialogue, because these ideas have no legitimate evidences and especially that they are productions of global/international organization, so it is important to support this handbook by Islamic references for Imams and preachers.
