Egypt's President extends service of Egypt's Mufti for another year

 Egypt’s Mufti, Dr. Shawki Allam extended his deep thanking to His Excellency Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the President of Egypt, for the trust he conferred on Egypt’s Dar al-Ifta and renewal of appointment as Grand Mufti for another year starting from August 12, 2021.

“The President’s great support is a big motivation and a granted opportunity to serve Egypt, and to pursue our work on renewing Ifta discourse on national and global levels,” Dr. Allam stated in a news statement.

Egypt’s President has issued Decree No 339 of 2021 renewing the appointment of Dr. Shawki Allam as Egypt’s Grand Mufti for one coming year starting from August 12, 2021.

President el-Sisi issued decree no. 338 of year 2021 to classify Egypt's Dar al-Ifta as a special-purpose entity, which effectively means that the civil service law does not apply to Dar al-Ifta as an institution.
