A telephone and internet helpline offering advice about the true teaching of Islam is being launched in the UK today (2 June). El Hatef, as the hotline is known in Arabic, was set up in Egypt eight years ago to counter radicalism by bringing the minds of the nation’s best Islamic scholars to bear on people’s doubts and questions about their religion (http://www.elhatef.com/index.php?lang=en). Callers to the Islamic Hotline will get answers to their questions within 48 hours, from scholars trained at one of the world’s principal Islamic universities, al-Azhar University.
