Qatalum has collaborated with the Abdulla Bin Zayed Al Mahmoud Cultural Islamic Center on the publication of a book, entitled Understanding Islam, which aims to introduce Qatari society and culture to non-Muslims from different nationalities living in Qatar. The books were delivered on the 23rd of December at Al Fanar, with Qatalum's Communications Department representatives delivering the finished books to the Islamic Center - a non-profit organization related to the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs.
According to Qatalum and the Islamic Center, the book aims to promote the "establishment of ideals of the Qatari community, including religious, moral and authentic Arab values which highlight the human and cultural values of Islam".
Ibrahim Jassim Fakhri, Qatalum's Corporate Communications Manager, says this book demonstrates Qatalum's ongoing commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and the company's vision to increase social cohesion among all living in Qatar – nationals and expats alike.
"We are deeply committed to helping all people understand each other and integrate well here in Qatar – especially with non-Qataris making up a large majority of the country's population. Increasing understanding about Islam among non-Muslims living here in Qatar, is as important as Muslim Qataris respecting the beliefs and values of those who have moved here to work."
"This fine book promotes inclusivity, religious tolerance and pluralism within Qatar, and we are proud to be associated with it," said Fakhri.
