Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

A new book titled Human Rights, Religious Freedom and Faces of Faith published by the Conference of European Churches (CEC) and Publications has just been released.

The book is part of the ongoing work done by CEC to advocate for the promotion and protection of human rights at the highest standards inside Europe and beyond its borders. The book offers a general introduction to freedom of religion or belief in a European setting and the rights of religious minorities. The book also provides examples of the situation with regard to freedom of religion or belief within Europe and outside of Europe. Furthermore, the book highlights some other topical human rights issues from a theological and legal perspective.

The book is edited by Göran Gunner, Associate professor at the University College Stockholm, Pamela Slotte, Associate Professor (tenure track) at the Åbo Akademi University and vice-director of the Centre of Excellence in Law, Identity and the European Narratives, University of Helsinki and Dr Elizabeta Kitanović, CEC Executive Secretary for Human Rights.
