Cairo, 4 Rabiul Awwal 1434/ 16 January 2013 (KUNA/MINA) – Kuwaiti humanitarian aid has reached all parts of the world through various contributions, Chairman of Kuwait’s Al-Najat Charitable Society Ahmad Al-Jasser said on Tuesday.
The Kuwaiti activities are not only confined to Islamic advocacy, but also include offering services in the fields of education, health, social care and refugees affairs.
In remarks to KUNA, on sidelines of opening the international scientific forum on teaching Arabic for non-Arabic speakers, Al-Jasser called on all Arab nations to support Al-Azhar Center for Teaching the Arabic Language for Non-Arabic Speakers.
This center is offering its services to almost 50,000 students annually at Al-Azhar University of those enrolled in Islamic Shari’a studies or all other majors.
This would enhance the cooperation and communication between Muslims, especially those coming from non-Arabic speaking countries, he affirmed.
Al-Jasser praised the Kuwaiti experience in establishing several centers for teaching Arabic Language for non-Arabs Speakers from which a large number of students are graduated annually.
Such centers played a positive role in presenting a better picture of Arab and Islamic societies, while it was the reason of some Arabic learners converting to Islam.
Kuwait Ambassador to Egypt Rasheed Al-Hamad praised the distinguished, deep-rooted ties between Kuwait and Egypt.
He also stressed on the constricted relations between Al-Azhar University and the scientific and Islamic institutions in Kuwait.
There is a remarkable cooperation between Al-Azhar and The Kuwaiti office for charitable projects, Al-Hamad affirmed.
The forum kicked off under auspices of Grand Imam of Egypt’s Al-Azhar Dr. Ahmad Al-Tayib. (T/R-019/R-006)
