Deep sorrow for the sudden loss of Mahmoud Azab, advisor of the Grand Imam of al-Azhar for the interreligious dialogue

 
printable version

The Community of Sant’Egidio expresses its deep sorrow for the sudden loss of Mahmoud Azab, advisor of the Grand Imam of al-Azhar for the interreligious dialogue and dear friend.

Since quite a time, prof. Azab shared the meetings of Prayer for Peace promoted by the Community. Dialogue and unity of the Egyptian people were to him essential objectives pursued with passion, and in last years he devoted much of his work next to the Grand Imam, as his envoy, to soften inter-confessional tensions. We join to the grief of all those knew and appreciated him, and we particularly convey our closeness to his family and to his beloved al-Azhar, which loses with him a dedicated servant.
