Conference on 4th-5th November 2015 in Nuremberg, in cooperation with the associations represented in the German Islam Conference (DIK).

But how can those organisations be legitimized by religious primary sources and historical experiences? And how can reflected, scientific and society-compatible Islamic social ethics be developed? How do Muslims and their organisations locate their charity activities in a plural and secular society? Should those activities be organized inwardly? Or do Muslims understand them as a religiously shaped service for society as a whole?
