Egypt to help Sudanese muslims

At an official event where Egypt announced its new ambassador to Sudan, it also announced a program to supply religious teachers to its southern neighbour.

The Ministry of Awqaf is a federal ministry responsible for the management of enowments, or Islamic 'trusts' that are used for the operation of mosques around the country.

Egyptian Minister Mohammed al-Qousi approved a plan to maintain and renovate mosques and to increase the number of preachers and Quran reciters to be dispatched to Sudan.

He also decided to dedicate to the Sudanese a collection of Islamic books in a bid to enrich sound religious awareness among the Sudanese Muslims.
