Jumaa thanked Kuwait Office, a branch of Kuwait Zakat (alsm) House, for sponsoring the students to study at Al-Azhar University’s Abi Bakr Al-Siddeeq Center in Alexandria, Northern Egypt.
He said the students would now “be a solid shield” against anti-Islam ideology. Kuwait Office Director Ismail Al-Kandari said cooperation between Kuwait and Egypt was deeplyrooted.
He said these training courses contribute to the spread of “genuine Islamic values and correct false ideologies, as well as spread of moderate merits and protecting youth from extremist ideas.”
