The second session of the same congress was held in 2016, with the theme “Incorporating Moral Values and Maqasid Al-Shari’ah into Medical and Health Care Practices”. Each of these sessions of the Congress attracted more than three (3) hundred international and local speakers and presenters from Asia, Africa, America and Europe.
