Kuwaiti named mem­ber of Is­lamic Sharia Board:

Al-Na­jat Char­i­ta­ble So­ci­ety dis­closed that its Deputy Gen­eral Man­ager Jaber Al-Wanda has been named a mem­ber of the Is­lamic Sharia Board in London, and now holds the po­si­tion of “Mem­ber Con­sul­tant” in the Sharia Ju­di­cial Coun­cil, re­ports Al-Sha­hed daily.

In a state­ment, Al-Wanda noted he’s the first Kuwaiti to be­come a mem­ber of the board. He de­scribed the task Her­culean, es­pe­cially as he rep­re­sents Kuwait on the board. He prayed for Al­lah’s guid­ance and sup­port to en­able him suc­ceed in the re­spon­si­bil­ity be­stowed on him.

He ex­plained the board was es­tab­lished in 1982 to re­solve is­sues re­lated to mar­riage, di­vorce, con­di­tioned di­vorce, in­her­i­tance and fi­nan­cial cases. He noted the Mus­lim com­mu­ni­ties liv­ing in the United Kingdom are in­volved in sev­eral of such cases and the board deals with them based on Sharia, par­tic­u­larly cases re­lated to the Mus­lim fam­ily. He re­it­er­ated that mem­bers of the coun­cil rep­re­sent var­i­ous Is­lamic doc­trines.

‘Admm of stu­dents in line with la­bor mar­ket’:

Dean of Ad­mis­sion and Reg­is­tra­tion at the Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Ap­plied Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing Dr Rabah Al-Na­jadah af­firmed the ad­mis­sion of stu­dents is in line with la­bor mar­ket needs, in co­or­di­na­tion with Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion, re­ports Al-Sha­hed daily.

In a re­cent in­ter­view on Al-Sha­hed TV chan­nel dur­ing the pro­gram ti­tled ‘How Long’, AlNa­jadah said it’s not nec­es­sary to ac­cept all ap­pli­cants based on per­cent­age, in­di­cat­ing pri­or­ity will be given to can­di­dates who earn high grades and grad­u­ally go down; adding the min­i­mum cri­te­rion for male and fe­male stu­dents is 70 and 75 per­cent re­spec­tively.

She considered fail­ure to ac­cept male stu­dents for a long time due to lack of seats as ‘time bomb’, stress­ing it’s dis­as­trous to sit idle with­out study­ing or do­ing any job. She urged the gov­ern­ment to sup­port con­struc­tion projects such as Jaber Univer­sity to ac­com­mo­date more sec­ondary school leavers.
