 Sports and Dialogue among Civilizations

Scholars and thinkers believe that now more than ever nations within this global village can benefit from each other’s experiences, initiatives and creativities. They can grow and better themselves and each other, and develop through communication and dialogue in the areas of culture, sciences and religion. The only other way instead of Dialogue today is the Clash, which would eventually lead the nations toward isolation.

The best ground for dialogue among civilizations is the proper cultural ground. Culture and civilization are the two common heritages of humankind, which in a logical and comprehensive observation will stand side by side. They could be used as the common human language and act as a bridge to bring the people of the world closer together.

In the cultural ground and in view of the spiritual and moral aspect of civilization, sports in the general sense, i.e. public sport, is a valuable means of ensuring the physical, mental, social and moral health of people. In a more specific sense, the international games and championships are a powerful means of sweeping over the political borders and creating a joint language for communication and dialogue among civilizations within different human societies.

Sports concern man and in a wider scale the human society, and so it is in close contact with the society’s culture. Therefore, and with regard to the rich Islamic civilization in the cultural ground -which is the core of commonalities between many nations and especially the Islamic countries- sports can be considered as a fundamental approach to dialogue among civilizations and realization of the civil society in the world.
