|The Constituent Council of the Muslim World League (MWL) has elected Dr Abdullah ibn Abdulmuhsin Al-Turki as its new secretary general.
A well-known scholar and a former vice chancellor of the Imam University and a former minister of Islamic affairs, Dr Turki succeeds Saleh Al-Obeid. MWL was founded in 1962 to ‘disseminate Islamic dawah and expound teachings of Islam, and to defend Islamic causes in a manner that safeguards the interests and aspirations of Muslims, solve their problems, refute false allegations against Islam, and repel inimical trends and dogma which the enemies of Islam seek to exploit in order to destroy the unity of Muslims and to sow seeds of doubt in our Muslim brethren.’
The MWL, whose headquarters are located in Makkah, has more than 30 branches all around the world. From its initial years, it has spent more than $35 billion in improving the status of Muslims all around the world.
