The Ministry of Awqaf (Endowments) and Islamic Affairs (Awqaf), yesterday, signed a cooperation agreement with the Ministry of Defense (MOD) to recruit those assigned to the National Service Academy in "Miqdam" camp to join the profession of imam, caller to prayer and preachers in the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs. The agreement embodies the visions and goals of the wise leadership in supplying State's mosques with Qatari preachers and imams to lead worshipers and make the call to prayer as they are the most capable to understand the issues of society and know its needs and aspirations.
The cooperation agreement was signed by Mr. Muhammad Hamad Al Kuwari, director of the Department of Mosques at Awqaf Ministry, and Brigadier-General Saud Ali Al Hanzab, director of Staff of the National Service Academy representing MOD.
The signing of the agreement between the two parties comes as part of the keenness of the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs to strengthen the societal partnership with State institutions and to achieve its strategy of attracting and qualifying Qatari imams and muezzins to work in State's mosques. This stems from the Ministry's belief in their active role in upgrading the values and morals of members of society and strengthening the aspects of faith and fraternal ties that the true Sharia promotes.
