The Islamic Solidarity Games (Arabic: ألعاب التضامن الإسلامي‎‎) is a multinational, multi-sport event. The Games involve the elite athletes of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference. The Islamic Solidarity Sports Federation (ISSF) is the organisation that is responsible for the direction and control of the Islamic Solidarity Games.[1]

History[edit]

The first event was held in 2005 in Saudi Arabia and there are currently 57 members of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference.[2] Non-Muslim citizens in the member countries are also allowed to take part in the Games.

A second event, originally scheduled to take place in October 2009 in Iran, and later rescheduled for April 2010, was canceled after a dispute arose between Iran and the Arab World over the use of the term Persian Gulf in logos for the Games, as some countries in the Arab world use the term "Arabian Gulf" to refer to the Persian Gulf. Dispute over the name has been a recurring source of disharmony between Arab states and Iran.[3] The latest edition took place in Baku, on 12–22 May 2017.[4][5]
