On behalf of the Dean of University Studies for Girls, Dr. Hala bent Saeed Al-Amoudi, the Vice-Dean of Graduate Studies, Dr. Maisoon Zayed Al-Bunyan, prepared “Sacredness of Makkah” program. The program was organized by the College of Education, in collaboration with “Glorifying the Sacred Land” project, on Tuesday, Rajab 12, 1437H, at hall 206, at the College of Education building (Y).
The program aims at shedding light on the emotional, behavioral and cognitive value of glorifying Makkah Al-Mukarramah in the hearts of the students, academic staff and administrative officials, and activating their participation in the mission of the “Glorifying the Sacred Land” project, as well as activating the role of the scientific departments in promoting the culture of glorifying the sacred land through different specialties.
After initiating the program with a Quranic recitation, Dr. Al-Bunyan gave a speech on behalf of the Dean of University Studies for Girls, Dr. Al-Amoudi, where she pointed out that such meetings play a significant role in reinforcing the culture of belonging and loyalty to the Sanctified House of Allah and the land of the Two Holy Mosques, along with embedding the values of the glorification of Makkah Al-Mukarramah, and the sciences and skills required to plant these values in the hearts of the students. Moreover, she stressed on the necessity of adhering to the noble Islamic values that reflect the identity of the Saudi girl generally, and the Makki girls specifically, in order to achieve the targeted values.
