"The main message that emerged from today's conference is that the Quran is behind a culture of peace," said Khaled Hajji, President of the administration of European Council of Moroccan Ulema (Islamic scholars) which organized the conference.

"It has contributed to build a civilization that has allowed for living together in peace. The Quran can contribute to recover the loss meaning of life in our digital culture nowadays," he said in concluding remarks, KUNA reported.

"The Quran calls on us to mediate and extract universal values that would help Muslims in the West to harmonize the relationships between us and the rest of the society," said Hajji, a Moroccan scholar.

He noted that the art of reciting the Quran is not new but has a history of 1,400 years.

The final session of the conference was devoted to the recitation of the Quran by 14 reciters from different Muslims countries residing in Europe.
