The writer Ahmed Al-Youssef, from the Arab component of the city of Manbij, explained that he was informed for the first time with information about the Yazidi religion through this webinar, indicating that followers of Islam support the Yazidi component.

The general coordinator of the Syrian Women's Council, Lina Barakat, who is from the Alawite component, indicated the importance of minorities introducing themselves through seminars and dialogues, adding that all minorities in the region have suffered from marginalization due to the regimes which are against them, through marginalizing them in the education curricula or marginalizing their culture in the official media.

The participants also stressed the importance of holding such seminars by the members of the same minority to introduce themselves, their beliefs, customs and traditions to the other components, because ignorance of any information about any component creates a barrier between them and other components.

One of the participants suggested the importance of publishing the content of the seminar by preparing and publishing a booklet that includes information on everything related to the Yazidi religion and answers to the questions of other components about what this religion is.
