In his closing remarks, Dr. Allam noted that the conference highlighted the religious duty toward the Islamic nation and addressed the challenges imposed on it. He asserted that the goals of sustainable development align with the objectives of the Shari’ah and called for serious scholars, researchers, and fatwa institutions to explore the juristic tradition to extract gems of the enlightened Islamic intellect that support the path of development.
