The students of the Faculty of Languages and Translation (female section) along with Intellectual Awareness Unit Coordinator, Dr. Amal Metwally, attended a workshop on Thursday, October 17, 2019, at the Faculty of Humanities. The workshop, which was held by Ms. Nora Al-Shamrani, focused on the significance of the feeling of appreciation and belongingness to one's home country. "Your home country is the place where you live, and to which you belong," said Ms. Al-Shamrani.
Ms. Al-Shamrani started with reviewing the history of the Kingdom and the significance of its flag. The flag of the kingdom, with the Islamic creed 'There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of God', is the flag used since 15 March 1973. She affirms that students should know the history of the Kingdom and appreciate it. Then an important discussion was raised on the power of the Kingdom and the 2030 Vision.
During the workshop, Ms. Al-Shamrani raised the question of how our students could be recognizable citizens, and students contributed with their answers saying that, in the first place, they should follow the Islamic creed; the Ever-Glorious Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him).
The workshop was followed by a warm discussion about what each citizen should do for his or her home country.
The event was attended by the Vice Supervisor of the Intellectual Awareness Unit, Dr. Dawlah Mohammad Mane', and the unit's coordinators from various faculties of the university.
