Excellency, Assalaam Alleykum Warahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu
The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims sends its complements to your Excellency and prays to Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, to grant you good health. I write on behalf of religious leaders of all faiths, the Muslim fraternity across the continent of Africa and myself to thank you and the people of the Republic of Azerbaijan for hosting us during the 2nd Baku Summit of World Religious Leaders.
Excellency, we have no enough words to express our Shukran for the love and warmth expressed to us as leaders of all religious faith throughout our stay in the Republic of Azerbaijan. We want to thank you most sincerely for your commitment and leadership in your bold efforts in the promotion of international cooperation and strengthening of inter-civilization and interfaith relations throughout the world. This is, indeed, true global leadership in the promotion of respect and tolerance among peoples of various religious faiths for we are all children of the Almighty Allah.
The exemplary role of the Azerbaijani people, under your leadership, in the promotion of multiculturalism, tolerance, interfaith solidarity and hospitality is anchored deep in our hearts. We left Baku deeply touched by the warm love of the people of Azerbaijan; a people who are proud of their history, heritage, culture, religious tolerance, and visionary leadership under your blessed hands.
We are proud of the leadership of Sheikh-ul-Islam Allahshukur Pashazade, Chairman of the Caucasus Muslims’ Board & Secretary General of Baku International Center for Interfaith & Inter-Civilization Cooperation for his visionary leadership in the promotion of dialogue and understanding among peoples of the various religious faiths. We were able to dialogue, embrace each other and build lasting bonds of friendship and brotherhood during our wonderful stay in Baku.
Excellency, please accept our deep appreciation and love for the warm reception, your personal attention and the love shown to us by the Azerbaijani people.
We pray to Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, to reward you abundantly for your leadership, simplicity, and in the promotion of global peace through your efforts in promoting human dignity among peoples of religious faith and persuasion.
Yours most sincerely,
Yusuf Abdulrahman Nzibo
Ambassador, National Chairman of the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims
