“Addourous Alhadithia”, Another Royal Initiative to Defend Authentic Islam

King Mohammed VI, the Commander of the Faithful, who has spearheaded so many initiatives to uphold the lofty values of Islam and champion a moderate and tolerant Islam against the threat of extremism, on Friday launched yet another initiative to counter attempts to distort the Hadith, Prophet Mohammed’s sayings.

From the headquarters of the National Broadcasting Corporation (SNRT) in Rabat, the King oversaw the launch of a new religious talk show, “Addourous Al Hadithia”, to be aired by the Mohammed VI Radio of the Holy Quran and Assadissa TV channel.

This new royal initiative is meant to disseminate the authentic sayings of the Prophet and their meanings, to educate people about the Prophet’s Tradition, which are the second source of Islam, and to correct the misunderstandings and false Hadiths circulated, especially via the Internet, for ideological reasons.

The new program also aims to highlight the unity of the Moroccan Nation when it comes to religion and to counter attempts to distort this religion.

The Sovereign, who was accompanied by Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan gave the signal for the recording and the airing of the inaugural talk show, anchored by the Secretary General of the Higher Council of Ulemas, Professor Mohamed Yssef.

The weekly “Addourous Alhadithia” program, to last between 20 minutes and one hour, will take many forms, including introductory lectures on recommendations made by the prophet concerning the transmission of his sayings, on his companions and their ethics, and the method of Imam Malik in the authentication, collection and codification of the Hadith.

The program, to be supervised by the Higher Council of Ulemas and Al-Quaraouyine University also features appearances of Hadith scholars who will explain some specific hadiths, while sessions will be moderated by a TV or radio anchor to answer questions from the public.

The TV watchers and radio listeners will be able to pose their questions by telephone, mail or WhatsApp.
The program will also be broadcast live on the Internet.
