It also argues that in understanding Islam’s spheres of influence within economics, sustainable development, global values and international institutions, Islamic perspectives can offer innovative solutions to current global crises.

October 2016 will mark the biennial conference hosted by the WMLF. The conference will aim to address the impact Islamic values, beliefs and teachings have on global models. In understanding this impact, the WMLF highlights the influential position Islam holds towards a range of spheres such as finance, jurisprudence, development and knowledge. The WMLF understands the need for Muslims to be the forerunners in these spheres, in order to be agents of change within the globalised world. The conference shall therefore bring leaders, contemporary scholars and experts from various fields together to illustrate the significant and unique contributions Islam can, and does make, to global issues.
