Shaykh Mukhtar Raban, IOU’s Director of Teaching and Learning, represented IOU officially at the FUIW international conference held at the ISESCO Headquarters in Rabat, Morocco in February 2017.


The FUIW is a branch of ISESCO that seeks to consolidate and harmonize partnerships between Muslim-run universities


 The conference hosted about 250 delegates from all member universities of the FUIW. The conference was the first to which IOU was invited, owing to the recent acceptance of IOU as a member university to the FUIW, ISESCO.  


The conference was opened and chaired by H.E. Prof. Dr Suliman bin Hamud bin Abdallah Aba Al-Khail, Rector of Al-Imam Muhammad Ibn Saud Islamic University, Chairman of the Executive Council of the Federation, President of the General Conference of the Federation.
