From the Muslim world came messages of support for Pope Francis' encyclical. The leader of Sunni Islam, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Al-Tayyeb, said the document returns conscience to humanity.

In “Fratelli Tutti,” the pope explains that the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar was key to his writing the text. Pope Francis and the Grand Imam in 2019 had signed a document on human fraternity.

From that meeting emerged a committee whose secretary general participated in the launch of the encyclical. It was an extraordinary moment, as it isn't very common to see a Muslim at the presentation of a papal document in the Vatican.

“Thank you, Pope Francis, for this powerful and courageous encyclical.”

Mohamed Mahmoud also announced that his committee will convene a forum for young people to study the Encyclical. They would meet in Rome, Abu Dhabi and Egypt.
