Al-Azhar imam: "Pope Francis' encyclical restores to humanity its consciousness" :

The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmad Al-Tayyeb has reacted to the release of Pope Francis’s Encyclical, "Fratelli tutti", on Sunday, October 4.

On Sunday, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmad Al-Tayyeb tweeted his reaction to Pope Francis’ Encyclical, Fratelli tutti.

Via twitter, the Grand Imam said:

“My brother, Pope Francis’ message, Fratelli tutti, is an extension of the Document on Human Fraternity, and reveals a global reality in which the vulnerable and marginalized pay the price for unstable positions and decisions. It is a message that is directed to people of good will, whose consciences are alive and restores to humanity consciousness.”

Al-Tayyeb co-signed the Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together with Pope Francis in February 2019 in Abu Dhabi.

Fratelli tutti is the Pope’s third Encyclical, and contains several citations from the Document on Human Fraternity.
