The Fourth International Youth Conference for the Support of Quds and Palestine commenced today, 17 May 2024, in Istanbul, bringing together young Muslims from around the world. Organized by the Global Scout Coalition for Quds and Palestine, in collaboration with the Student Coalition, Scout Coalition, Sports Coalition, and the Protectors 144 team, the conference aims to promote unity and empowerment among Muslim youth in support of Quds and Palestine.

Dr. Mostafa Faisal Parvez, Secretary General of the International Islamic Federation of Student Organizations (IIFSO), delivered a keynote address at the conference. In his speech, he emphasized the historical significance of Muslim leadership, the challenges facing the Muslim Ummah, and the critical role of youth in shaping the future.

Dr. Faisal began his speech with an Islamic greeting, expressing gratitude to the conference organizers and participants for their dedication to bringing together young Muslims to discuss issues related to Quds and Al-Aqsa.

Dr. Faisal provided a historical overview, highlighting the contributions of Muslim rulers from the time of the Prophet Mohammad (SAW) until the end of the First World War. He noted the significant roles of the Umayyad, Abbasid, Great Seljuk, and Ottoman empires. He emphasized that the decline of Muslim influence in global politics began after World War I, with the emergence of over fifty Muslim nation-states from the Ottoman Empire, many of which are now led by dictators or Western puppets.

He criticized the League of Nations and the United Nations for their failure to protect the human rights of persecuted people. He pointed out that many international conflicts, such as those in Palestine, Kashmir, Arakan, and East Turkistan, emerged after World War II. Dr. Faisal also condemned U.S. policies post-Cold War, particularly the “War on Terror,” which he argued served American self-interests and protected Israel.

A central theme of Dr. Faisal’s speech was the empowerment of Muslim youth. He stressed the importance of nurturing their leadership skills and providing them with the necessary support and resources. He called for visionary leaders like Prof. Dr. Necmettin Erbakan, scholars like Yusuf al-Qaradawi, and scientists like Dr. Abdul Qadir and Selcuk Bayraktar to inspire the youth.

Dr. Faisal asserted that empowering Muslim youth is not just an ideal but an urgent necessity. He highlighted the socio-economic disparities and political unrest faced by the Ummah and the crucial role of youth in addressing these challenges. He urged the youth to embody the spirit of Islam, armed with knowledge, compassion, and a sense of responsibility.

In his concluding remarks, Dr. Faisal reiterated IIFSO’s commitment to supporting Muslim youth. He assured the attendees that IIFSO stands ready to assist them in their transformative journey, emphasizing the organization’s openness to ideas, suggestions, and initiatives from the youth. He stressed that the crisis in Gaza is not just a regional issue but one that concerns the entire Ummah and that the empowerment of Muslims globally is key to resolving such problems.
