The state of Qatar has opened its gates to other cultures and
civilisations while maintaining its local identity. Abdullah Bin Zaid
Al-Mahmoud Islamic Cultural Center is one of the most important
landmarks, with its great design along with a spiral minaret that reflects
light and guidance for the whole of mankind.
The very source of the culture of Qatar stems from the doctrines
and cultures of Islam, and with this book we aim to provide you with a
basic guide to the creed of not only this country, but also one fifth of the
world’s population. We have written this aimed at the modern day thinker,
pondering about the very nature of the meaning of life and trying to clear
some of the many misconceptions of today. We also hope to build bridges
between the many communities both within Qatar and globally. By giving
you this book we hope that this acts as a small gesture and will inspire
you to visit our iconic centre.
Ahlan Wa Sahlan
