DAVAO CITY (PNA) — Proliferation of arms, warlordism, poverty, peace process, corruption, vote-buying and the recent attack on Malaysian churches are just some of the issues confronting the Muslims in the country.

Coming together to tackle them are the most influential sector in Muslim society, the religious leaders, Ulama (aleema for women). They are religious leaders learned in Arabic and Islam. Most are graduates of Middle Eastern Islamic universities.

The largest gathering of independent Muslim religious leaders will be held on Jan. 25-29 at the Waterfront Insular Hotel in Davao City, for the 3rd National Ulama Summit and Regional Conference of Aleemat, or women Islamic scholars.

Organized by the Philippine Council for Islam and Democracy (PCID) for the National Ulama Conference of the Philippines (NUCP), the gathering will be attended by around 500 independent ulama and aleemat representing over 200 ulama-led organizations, an unprecedented assembly of Muslim religious leaders rarely seen in the country.

The NUCP is a broad coalition that includes the majority of all independent ulama organization and federations throughout the country. Its members include some of the most respected Muslim religious leaders and imminent Islamic scholars coming from the five Muslim provinces and the various Muslim communities throughout the nation.
