President Muhammadu Buhari, in Madinah, Saudi Arabia, says the spread of true knowledge of the religion of Islam is the most important task now facing global Muslims.

The President stated this after an extensive tour of the International Fair and Museum of the Prophet’s Biography and Islamic Civilisation in the city as part of his engagement in the Holy City.

He commended the Saudi government for deploying latest technological tools in presenting the core of Islam, its lofty purposes, and qualitative teachings.

According to the President, the Muslim community needs a system that is futuristic, bringing knowledge and education in a new system that will make for a good understanding of the very features of the religion.

He praised the Saudi authorities for their efforts to take the world to the established roots of Islamic civilisation, adding, however, that a more concerted international effort was needed.
