However, The UAE denies the allegations, Defending the Abraham Family House as an already functioning institution has the exact opposite purpose of strengthening Islam while promoting its peaceful and harmonious coexistence with Christianity and Judaism. In this sense, the Abraham Family House includes separate churches, mosques, and synagogues, all free to practice their faith, as it celebrates freedom of worship and calls for coexistence rather than merger between religions.

This religious center calls for the spread of tolerance and coexistence and the promotion of human brotherhood, And promote the Quran game in several UAE cities to encourage young Muslims to recite the Quran and remember the important figures of the Prophet Muhammad, spreading his values. In fact, the center houses a mosque focused on strengthening the social role of Islam.

Information critical of Abraham family home linked to Saudi fatwa From over 25 years ago it has now been restored. In this context, the fatwa related to the call for unity among the three major religions of Islam, Judaism and Christianity dates back more than 25 years and was written by Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah Baz, who died in 1999, was reported to have been actively promoted by various sources and media as a new manhunt warrant issued by Saudi Arabia over the Abraham family home. All of this is based on the idea that the House of the House of Abraham originally did not call for the unity of religions, but for them to coexist peacefully.
