Shared Societies against Extremism through the Dialogue of Civilizations speech by dr. Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri

More than ever before, the human family is called upon today to return to the roots that tie it together and the nature that Allah bestowed on it, namely that all beings are Allah's creation and that Allah created all from one soul. Cultural, civilizational, ethnic and religious diversity should not constitute a factor of division, conflict and extremism, but instead serve as a bridge for mutual acquaintance and a factor of affection and cooperation. Allah says: ‘If thy Lord had so willed, He could have made humans one people: but they will not cease to dispute, except him on whom your Lord has bestowed His Mercy and for that did He create them.’ Allah also says: ‘O people! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you.’
