As the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has been welcoming members of all faiths and religions to practice their faith in the country. As the new President of the UAE, it is expected he would adopt a sincere endeavour to promote the values of tolerance locally and globally.
Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church, visited Abu Dhabi in 2019 and promoted values of fraternity, peace, and peaceful coexistence. Pope Francis’s visit coincided with the Year of Tolerance, and Dr Ahmed El Tayyeb, the Grand Imam of Al Azhar Al Sharif in Cairo, Egypt, was also present. Sheikh Mohamed said the visit is significant because it reinforces ties of friendship and cooperation between the UAE and the Vatican.
The UAE leaders are conscious of moving forward and strengthening their role by encouraging cultural and civilisational dialogue among the global population and consolidating its leading position as a beacon of tolerance, the art of giving, peace, and moderation.
Set to open in 2022, the Abrahamic House is a place for learning, dialogue, and worship. It will be a cultural landmark and an inspiring global symbol that epitomises the shared values of harmonious coexistence and understanding among the three Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
The project is supervised by the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity and was envisioned by Sheikh Mohamed.
