King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia has been named Islamic Personality of the Year, organisers announced during a press conference.
The Dubai International Holy Quran Award (DIHQA) made the announcement ahead of the start of the 21st edition of the competition.
Ebrahim Bu Melha, Head of the Organising Committee of DIHQA, told reporters that the prestigious title was awarded to King Salman for his noble positions and tremendous contributions in the service of Islam, Muslims and the holy shrines.

He stated that King Salman had made relentless efforts to unify Arabs and Muslims so as to confront challenges they face.”King Salman’s charitable and humanitarian works are countless. He extends assistance to all countries, especially Islamic ones, hit by disasters and catastrophes,” he said.
All this is the worst Joke to Muslim Ummah, as what happened to Islamic summit at Saudia is an eye opener for the Muslim World. Where US-Saudi Arabia seal weapons deal worth nearly $110 billion immediately, $350 billion over 10 years.
Obama, who sold about $115 billion in U.S. weapons to Saudi Arabia during his eight years as president, had slowed military cooperation with the kingdom in large part because of what it considered Saudi Arabia’s indiscriminate bombing of civilians in Yemen. The Trump deal puts those agreements back on track and expands them.
The only contribution of King Salman to Ummah is that he has bowed before the worst enemy of Islam, the US President Donald Trump. King Salman has proved worst for the Muslims as he has completely divided the Muslim Ummah.
Earlier this month, Amber Rudd, the British Home Secretary, admits that arms sales to Saudi Arabia are strengthening the British defence industry.
In the Yemen, 10,000 have died and millions more displaced following attacks by Saudi-led forces against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, with the Saudis accused of targeting civilians.
Meanwhile, the UK has continued to sell arms to the Saudi regime, sending more than £3 billion of weapons to the kingdom since the conflict in Yemen.
Awarding King Salman as Islamic Personality of the year could nothing but be the worst joke to the Muslim Ummah.
