Abstract:This book contains the edited proceedings of the thirty-first annual conference of the Nigeria Association of Teachers of Arabic and Islamic Studies (NATAIS) held in llorin at the Kwara State College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies, 21-23 April 2013. Scholars of Arabic and Islamic Studies presented papers on the theme of the conference 'Security and peace building in Nigeria: the role of Arabic and Islamic Studies'. Twenty-one of these papers are brought together in this book, thirteen are written in Arabic, eight are in English. The authors address the importance of security, and underscore the role of the Arabic language as a security tool in Nigeria.

The articles emphasize the interreligious dialogue as one of the ingredients for security, tolerance and peace building in society. [ASC Leiden abstract]
