The UAE has been the home of tolerance since the dawn of history.

The UAE has opened its doors to the peoples of the world since the dawn of history, regardless of ethnic, religious and cultural differences, and has shown unprecedented commitment to the concept of peace, openness, diversity and tolerance, so that all peoples of the world live in harmony and unity, and continue to strive for cooperation and brotherhood, and work towards a just and common social development in which there is no difference between an Arab and a non-Arab.

An initiative that is the first of its kind at the state level.

The Youth at the Table initiative, the first of its kind in Dubai in particular and in the UAE in general, where new Muslims met their young Emirati brothers in a Ramadan atmosphere full of familiarity, love, welcoming culture and celebration of the achievements that the people of this great Emirati community are proud of.

The new Muslims were influenced by the tolerant teachings of the religion.

The event was tolerant and familiar in the truest sense of the word. Previously, those who had embraced Islam wanted to find guidance in Dubai. Their wish was fulfilled and they were even influenced by the Islamic culture and its tolerant teachings, and they long to influence this achievement for good in their societies. They used the right methods to learn and develop their Islamic culture and spread the Islamic sciences to followers of other religions who wanted to know the true Islamic religion.

An atmosphere of tolerance in the land of tolerance.

In such an atmosphere enjoyed by the participants of the initiative and everyone living in the UAE, it is no wonder that Dubai has been named the safest city in the world several times over the years. It has become a global oasis of peace in the Middle East and around the world, where people enjoy stability and security. Far away from all conflicts, peace, serenity and peaceful coexistence of different religions prevail here, connecting different civilizations in an orderly and authentic way. Thus, the dream of the great late Sheikh Zayed, the father and founder of the Federation of Emirates, to create a global model of tolerance and coexistence has been fulfilled.

Accompanying, guiding and providing continuous support to the new Muslims.

The Mohammed bin Rashid Center for Islamic Culture, affiliated with the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities in Dubai, is constantly striving to provide aftercare and counseling services for new Muslims, including for the phase after professing Islam, which is one of the most important stages in the new Muslim's journey, as the center provides services that include religious, social, cultural, family and procedural aspects, such as. professing Islam, issuing certificates (certificate of conversion to Islam, certificate of replacement of a lost copy, certificate for new children of Muslims, certificate of receipt of material benefits in cooperation with the Zakat Fund in Abu Dhabi, or facilitating marriage procedures in cooperation with the courts in Dubai), issuing tuition and exams in cooperation with the Center's Student Affairs Department.

Presenting the true religion with a civilized, tolerant discourse.

The increase in the number of new Muslims in the Emirate of Dubai is also due to the continuous efforts of the Mohammed bin Rashid Center for Islamic Culture and Islamic Centers in Dubai, as well as the Dubai Police, with direct support from the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department, to present the true Islamic religion to non-Muslims by explaining its principles and its concepts and teachings to different groups in different languages through a civilized discourse. This has helped communities from different cultures to join the Islamic religion with their conviction and will after studying the objectives and provisions of Islamic law.
