The program was discussed in the first day’s symposium, which is entitled "The role of religious education in combating family disintegration"The importance of immunizing the family from the various dangers that threaten it, especially in light of the spread of many misconceptions about marital life, and the need to consolidate Islamic values that showed the rights and duties of each family member. In this context, Dr. Ahmed Al-Farjabi said: "The family is the foundation of society, and Islam establishes this family on the principles of the Sharia, which God Almighty has honored us with"Indicating that the relationship is close between the month of fasting and the family, as in the Almighty’s saying: “It is lawful for you on the night of fasting to go to your wives. Islam. During his intervention at the symposium, he indicated that the family as an institution faces a threat to the very foundation of its existence, explaining that the Islamic nation will not return to its correct position until it puts the family in its position, as Islam is a religion that chooses the good seed and selects the good land for it, then undertakes this seed to take care of the blessed fruit. Its origin is fixed and its branch is in the sky. Al-Farjabi expressed his regret that there are those who see the reality of the family as different from the instinct that God has created for him, including a husband, wife, children, and grandchildren. Rather, some have made marriage available between two men or two women, to change the divine pattern of the family, so Islam came, putting family issues within the constants, and explaining all Chapters in the Holy Quran. And he stressed the importance of giving the divine meaning to the family that gives it sanctity and sanctity, so whoever commands prayer, fasting and zakat is the one who commands good cohabitation, and the spouses should not be outside their home in a manner other than their nature inside the home, and this must "Schizophrenia" To go away in compliance with the orders of God Almighty. For his part, Dr. Abdul Hay Youssef said: "The pillars of family security can be summed up in evoking a good intention. Whoever wants to form a family must remember that by marrying he is responding to God’s command, and that he wants a Muslim woman to be chaste, in response to the command of the Prophet – may God bless him and grant him peace – regarding marriage and procreation, and evoking the intention to produce righteous offspring that will live. Earth by obedience to God, and in establishing a house based on fear of God, and that the remembrance of God be present in the house". During his intervention at the symposium, he stated that one of the main reasons for family security lies in recognizing that marital life is based on good cohabitation, on fearing and observing God, and on faith in the Last Day, when God will judge the spouses for each other on this day. Abdel-Hay pointed out that there are many misconceptions about married life among today’s youth, which are represented in the fact that the working woman is "The female employee" As for the woman who raises children, feeds them, and teaches them, she is considered "idle", although it performs a large number of functions, indicating that the study of the Prophet’s biography corrects all misconceptions about marital life, in addition to what it includes in terms of treatment for the various problems that the family faces. In a related context, Dr. Bilal Baroudi stressed the importance of those about to get married realizing the truth of what they will do, and knowing how to immunize the family from the various dangers that threaten it, indicating that God – the Almighty – has established the family and established its rules and explained all its chapters. He said during his speech at the symposium: "If God left all the provisions of marriage to people, all rights would be lost"Explaining that God Almighty has explained in His Holy Book all the provisions of the family from its beginning to its end, so whoever adheres to it does not go astray or miserable in his marital life, because he adheres to the path of guidance in which there is safety, tranquility and stability. Baroudi stressed the need for a person to be aware of the true value of marriage, and not as it is presented in many series and films, indicating that the woman is the partner of the man in the responsibility entrusted to them, but she is not the partner of the man in the decisions of manhood, just as the man is not her partner in the decisions of femininity, especially God Almighty has explained the rights and duties of each towards the other. He explained, during his intervention at the symposium, that the true value that attracts the spouses towards each other is determined by the fact that the woman needs the strength and honesty of the man, while the man needs her femininity, which is adorned with modesty. If each of them loses what the other needs, family security becomes in great danger, pointing out that most What is going on in the media today targets the family at its core, and we should be aware of the impact of these contents on our sons and daughters. For his part, Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Shahbar said: "Threats to family security are linked to threats to the overall cultural security of the nation"Where the first threat is determined in the revisions that push the Islamic nation outside what is required by the Islamic cultural system, indicating that many Islamic countries have reservations about agreements that threaten family security, but there are other parties that seek to involve Muslims in discussions to define a new concept of the family, and to introduce Western values and customs. on him. He added, during his intervention at the symposium, that after many parties were unable to penetrate the Islamic nation in this framework, they resorted to other names that they put forward through ongoing international projects, with the aim of changing many concepts related to the family, which calls for alertness to the various attempts and confronting them. Al-Shahbar indicated that the second threat to family security is cultural, pointing to the weakness of our curricula in immunizing Muslims on family issues, in addition to the lack of diligence in issues related to it, calling on scientific, religious and social institutions to restore their role in strengthening family security.
In turn, Dr. Omar Abdel Kafi said: "Houses are built on four walls, but the Holy Qur’an mentioned three (so that you may find tranquility in them and He has placed between you affection and mercy). If the spouses understand the family’s relationship with what it contains of tranquility, affection and mercy, God created the fourth complementary wall, which is (And We fixed his wife for him), so the reform is from God. Come here". During his intervention at the symposium, he stressed the importance of training those about to get married "family structure"Attention should not be limited to the aspects associated with the marriage ceremony without paying attention to the nature of the spouses or one of them, and his psychological and cognitive eligibility for marriage. Abdel Kafi pointed out that some countries conduct a medical examination to prove that the spouses or one of them is free of certain diseases before marriage, calling for the promotion and development of this idea to reach "Marital literacy"By introducing the spouses to the rights and duties of each other towards the other before marriage, which is reflected in the strengthening of family security in the future. He stressed the need to raise the advocacy discourse on family issues, and focus on the behaviors and ethics associated with the spouses, calling for the establishment of a college for family sciences in every Arab university, which includes all sciences and studies related to the family, to graduate family counselors who contribute to reducing the problems of family disintegration. During the symposium, Abdulkafi warned against some families and friends concealing negative information related to a person who is about to get married when asked about him, which negatively affects the stability of families after marriage, calling on families to inform the two parties about to get married of the defects of each of them, so that all details are clear, in order to family continuation. And he stressed the need for families to pay attention to education as well as to feed their children and provide all their needs, indicating that the values derived from the Book and the Sunnah are fixed until the Day of Resurrection, and families must establish "Faith immunity" In the hearts of children, so do not harm them attacks on the constants of the fortified Muslim family.
