The Department of Arabic Language at Qatar University College of Arts and Sciences (QU-CAS) hosted a symposium titled ‘Post-blockade, where are the Arab values going?’.
The lecture was delivered by Dr Mohamed al-Shankiti, associate professor of History of Religions at Hamad Bin Khalifa University College of Islamic Studies. It aimed to raise awareness among QU students about Arab values and to reinforce their ethical principles and sense of patriotism as well as their positive position towards Qatar’s blockade crisis.
Attending the event were head of CAS Arabic Language Department Dr Mariam al-Naimi and a large number of faculty and students.
Dr al-Shankiti highlighted the values of courage, generosity and neighbourliness, and the rejection of oppression and
treason in Islam.
He noted that Islam established and expanded these values to acquire a universal human significance. He discussed the Gulf crisis in light of the Arabic values and the historical glories of the Arabian Peninsula.
Dr al-Naimi said, “The Department of Arabic Language at Qatar University College of Arts and Sciences is keen to raise student awareness on national issues through dialogue. The department recently included the pride and dignity speeches of His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani in the QU core curriculum programme.
“The department also launched a creative campaign to attract student initiatives inspired by the impact of the blockade
imposed on Qatar.”
