Egypt Awqaf Min­is­ter terms bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion with Kuwait as ‘his­toric’

Stu­dents now ‘solid shield’ against anti-Is­lam ide­ol­ogy

Arab Times - - LO­CAL -

One of the con­tes­tant recit­ing the Holy Qu­ran. ALEXAN­DRIA, Egypt, Oct 13, (KUNA): Egypt’s Min­is­ter of Awqaf Dr Mukhtar Ju­maa Fri­day termed as “his­toric” the bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion with Kuwait.

Ju­maa was ad­dress­ing a cer­e­mony con­clud­ing three­day train­ing cour­ses for vis­it­ing stu­dents in Al-Azhar Uni­ver­sity, spon­sored by Cairo-based Kuwait Of­fice for Phi­lan­thropic Projects.

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.”

Kuwait Hu­mane Res­cue Char­ity and Na­jat Char­ity or­ga­nized the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony for 147 Holy Qu­ran mem­o­riz­ers among the Syr­ian or­phan refugees in Jor­dan.

The cer­e­mony was held in Erbed Gover­norate in North Am­man un­der the pa­tron­age of Kuwaiti Am­bas­sador to Jor­dan Aziz Al-Dai­hani with the fam­i­lies of grad­u­ates, rep­re­sen­ta­tive of char­i­ties and Kuwaiti donors in at­ten­dance.

In a state­ment to KUNA, AlDai­hani con­grat­u­lated the grad­u­ates and praised the ef­forts ex­erted by Kuwaiti char­i­ties. He stressed that Kuwait is keen on sup­port­ing char­i­ta­ble and hu­man­i­tar­ian ac­tiv­i­ties ac­cord­ing to the di­rec­tives of HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed AlJaber Al-Sabah. He said the Holy Qu­ran mem­o­riza­tion com­pe­ti­tions help pro­mote the cul­ture of tol­er­ance which is part of the Is­lamic prin­ci­ples. Grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony of 147 chil­dren of Syr­ian refugees in Jor­dan at­tended by the Cus­to­dian of the Two Holy Mosques in Jor­dan in the pres­ence of the Am­bas­sador of Kuwait to Jor­dan Aziz Al-De­hani
