RIYADH: Senegalese President Macky Sall on Sunday officially opened the Dakar branch of the International Fair and Museum of the Prophet’s Biography and Islamic Civilization.

Sall told of his happiness at the opening, commending the efforts of the Muslim World League in highlighting Islamic values which are embodied in the event, which uses the latest exhibition techniques.

Sall also praised the strong Saudi-Senegalese relations and the continuous pursuit to promote civilizational exchange between the two countries, adding that he is looking forward to future joint efforts.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by Deputy Secretary-General of the MWL Abdulrahman Al-Zaid, along with a number of scholars from the African continent and government officials.

Branches of the International Fair and Museum of the Prophet’s Biography and Islamic Civilization are being organized worldwide, under the supervision of the MWL.

These efforts seek to introduce people to the biography, including its guiding values for the right path, while raising Muslim people’s awareness and highlighting the dangers of extremism and shedding light on Islamic civilization.

The International Fair and Museum of the Prophet’s Biography and Islamic Civilization, in its fixed and traveling branches, is considered the first of its kind when it comes to introducing the biography and Islamic civilization.

This is due to its unique sources, authentic scientific work, peer-reviewed research and exhibition techniques which utilize the latest technologies in order to present visitors from around the world with information about Islamic values to help address common misconceptions.

Al-Zaid said: “The international fair regularly organizes exhibitions on the Prophet’s biography, under the supervision of the MWL’s Secretary-General Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa.

“These exhibitions comprise 20 different sections dedicated to the Prophet’s biography and Islamic civilization, along with a collection of artifacts and sculptures that represent Islamic history, helping visitors imagine what the cities of Makkah and Madinah were like during the Prophet’s era.

“The exhibition also includes halls dedicated to cinematic screening, and interactive astronomy and environmental shows. It also comprises a creative section containing a panoramic model of the Prophet’s tomb and pulpit, equipped with the latest technologies, such as virtual reality and 3D projection.

“This enables visitors to experience the dimensions of the Prophet’s biography and Islamic monuments, and interact with them while being fully immersed in them.

“This turns the experience into a living one, in addition to it being a fun and inspiring experience of added knowledge, highlighting numerous historical monuments and belongings that were part of the Prophet’s biography.”
