– For a broader presentation of the heritage of our great teacher Khoja Ahmed Yassawi, this academic year a theology faculty was created at our university. Our main goal is to form a concept for the development of Islam in a secular state. At the moment, there are many stereotypes, misconceptions and organizations that point young people in the wrong direction and lead to radicalism. We decided to open the Theology faculty to combat such manifestations. The faculty will become a unique system of religious education in Kazakhstan. And we hope that the new initiative of our university will be supported by the Spiritual Directorate of Muslims of Kazakhstan.
In turn, Nauryzbay kazhy Taganuly stressed that he was always ready for cooperation and noted that he supported the training of competent religious specialists for the good of the country.
In conclusion, the Supreme Mufti made a report and delivered a short sermon, after which he made an analysis of the seven directions of work of the Spiritual Directorate and in conclusion dwelt on the concept of Ihsan.
