We are a network of some of Libya’s most senior and most respected Muslim Religious Scholars with various specializations and tribal backgrounds from across our beloved Libya. Our network also includes some of the most respected Sufi Teachers in our country. Leading Judges, Lawyers, Doctors, Engineers, University Professors and Intellectuals, as well as Writers and Poets, are also members. Our network includes both men and women, old and young, locally educated and educated-abroad. We are not a political party, and our only agenda is that of upholding the highest religious, spiritual, moral, and human values, and the service of our beloved Libya. We are diverse groups of different schools and outlooks, and we believe in the richness of plurality, and the wisdom of dialogue and communication with all other faiths and cultures. Our network is only one dimension of Libya’s very rich and sophisticated Civil Society, which has always been there, but has had to go clandestine for many years because of the regime’s repressive policies. In the New Libya, all these seeds will sprout into a rich and vibrant culture, unified, and mutually respectful. For the time being, security conditions do not allow us to publish a list of members. We will publish such a list as soon as we can.
