Grand Imam of Al Azhar Dr Ahmed el Tayyeb has decided to form an advisory committee to be tasked with revising all fatwas before making them available for the media.
The committee-to-be will be chaired by Undersecretary of Al Azhar Dr Mohamed el Duweini.
It should act to verify that all fatwas from the different bodies concerned are in line with those of senior scholars.
The committee-to-be is also expected to write a monthly report on the performance of issuers of fatwas, and act to publish all verified fatwas in a book to be available for researchers and students.
