During the meeting, headed by Prof. Ahmad at-Tayyeb, the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, the Council of Senior Scholars of al-Azhar decided to convene an international conference in February, 2016. This conference is to discuss the latest development in al-Aqsa Mosque, and the violations of the Zionist entity to al-Ḥaram al-Šarīf. The conference will also tackle what is being said about al-Aqsa Mosque, and how this affects and reflects on the Palestinian cause and the interest of the Palestinian people.
Moreover, the Council decided to form a committee which is headed by Dr./ Nasr Fareed Wasel, member of the Council of Senior Scholars, and to include  a number of senior scholars. This committee will focus on a number of the Fiqh pending and unsolved issues, which need the lawful decisive opinion. This committee is incorporated according to what the Grand Imam has called for, in his word, during "the Conference of Luxor", during which he demanded the nation's scholars to adopt what he called "the Collective Reasoning or Ijtihad", for which all Muslim senior scholars are invited to join. This call is to encourage the Muslim scholars to investigate the issues that the nation is currently facing, to give decisive and conclusive opinions concerning these issues, and to present these opinions to Muslims worldwide.
