A letter from the IUMS to the kings, sultans, princes and primates of Islamic countries in Istanbul summit 2016 

Praise be to Allah, peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah; Mohammed, and upon his family and companions and followers, and after…

IUMS is following with great interest the atmosphere of the summit of Islamic countries in the Turkish city of Istanbul on Thursday, April 14, 2016 m, considering what  the Islamic nationhas experienced for years and  till now, and the changes and events that occurred due to it in the Islamic countries, as well as regional and global changes which represents a major challenge to the nation in the face of attempts to make a major place for itself that cannot be ignored in the international system, which seem to be re-formed again, especially these days.

The Union considers that the biggest challenge is in finding the will of the nation's rulers and ruled alike to overcome the stage of work according to the special-interest transient, moving to uphold the public interest of the people and nations, and do not exceed the crowd thundering in all countries, or to take fateful decisions in her life realism or future in the absence of which stage , it deepens the gap between the ruler and the ruled, and then spoke of differences and conflicts and dispersed the nation, and then fail and lost its sense.

That is why the Union appreciates the receipt of the Turkish Republic the Presidency of the Islamic Summit in this time and prays for its success and payment, and the rest of the land of Islam and Muslims, but also for the whole world, and invites them to transform the slogan of this summit, "unity and solidarity" into reality that will be practiced by all Muslim countries, and experienced and touch people, through the adoption of dreams and hopes, and remove any obstacles in the way of achieving that unity and solidarity.

The Union calls the Islamic Summit for the adoption of the hopes of peoples aspiring to freedom and change and renewal, Allah Almighty created people free ones, and the Prophet - peace be upon him – confirmed that Allah sends on top of every one hundred years who renewed the Muslim’s religion, the Religion was need to continuously renew and to remind people to their principles, values and foundations to interact with the changes of time and ages, it is a fortiori that the things our world need to change and renew and develop continuously, otherwise the alternative is stagnation and ossification, and then followed by militancy and extremism, backwardness and decline and the spread of injustice, oppression and tyranny, that are untouchable in Islamic religion  Sharaa.

The Union leaders gathered and calls for the activation of real cooperation among their countries, and even integration as well, and the removal of political and economic inter-barriers and others, in terms of cooperation and integration in various fields that would strengthen everyone together and take advantage of the resources of each country, making the Union of Islamic countries a real union offers good for the country and its citizens, as well as the whole world, where the basic message of Islam is the reconstruction of the ground and a good spread among all people without discrimination or marginalization and exclusion and discrimination of one on another.

The Union urges the Islamic Summit to include the issues of terrorism and tyranny on the agenda of the summit, search for the real reasons for it, and what are effective methods of treatment, to remove the adverse effects on human and the universe. Just as there is terrorism practiced by organizations such as Daash and others, there are entities practicing terrorism organized in full view of the world such as the Zionist occupation in Palestine beloved, there are systems pursues terrorism and coups as a lifestyle for her against her people and her country, so the Union sees no separation between terrorism and tyranny, where two are closely linked.

The Union also calls summit to exert international pressure to confront the phenomenon of Islamophobia adopted by some western countries and organizations, to tarnish the image of Islam and Muslims, and some used to achieve racial purposes against the Islamic nation.

In conclusion, the union’s leaders and rulers assembled calls tomorrow in Istanbul, Turkey, to give priority to Islamic issues that have become urgent and important of all, especially in Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Kashmir and Afghanistan, and others, as well as Muslim around the world, minorities in order to leave with a united position that takes the hopes and aspirations of the peoples of those countries, and restores their hope international link that is based on the solution to their problems and support their hopes and seeks to remove their pain.

He also says, "Obey Allah and His Messenger and do not dispute with one another lest you should lose courage and your resolve weaken" Al-Anfal - verse 46
