The Role of H.H. the Wife of H.H. the Emir

Her Highness has given prominence to the role of Qatari women and created an environment that encourages them to meet their social obligations and participate in public life. H.H. Sheikha Mouza endorses women's conferences, which discuss women's issues and recommend solutions for the problems and challenges that confront women who work outside the home.
She has directed most of her attention to education programs, maintaining a direct and continuous association with government and private education institutions. She frequently attends and effectively participates in the meetings of education leaders in all scientific, educational and sports matters. A keen observer of the news will notice that when Her Highness accompanies H.H. the Emir during his official visits, she shows particular interest in visiting educational institutions and universities. Her Highness' keenness to contact education leaders is also conspicuous, together with her desire to familiarize herself with modern educational programs, with the aim of adopting those aspects which do not contradict Islamic teachings and social principles.
Her Highness has spared no effort to bring about a qualitative change in the standard of education and produce a generation capable of keeping pace with the developments and technologies of the times. She was one of the supporters of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, established in 1996 as a private and independent entity. One of the first achievements of the Foundation was the establishment of Qatar Academy, whose council of trustees is chaired by a leading Qatari woman Sheikha Al-Misnad. Among other pioneering projects that emerged from the Foundation are the Family Development Center and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU)-Qatar College of Design Arts.
H.H. Sheikha Mouza did not ignore her sons and daughters, the disabled. She has honored them by supporting and sponsoring care activities carried out on their behalf. She has worked hard to establish specialized societies to care for the deaf, the dumb and the blind, such as Al Noor Institute for the Blind. The National Committee for Children with Special Needs is another example. It was established in June 1998 with the initial aim of preparing an extensive study on the establishment and management of Shafallah Center. The Committee is chaired by Sheikha Ghalia Bint Mohammad Al-Thani and has in its membership a number of medical doctors and specialists.
Her Highness, furthermore, sponsored several ladies-only functions such as the conference entitled: The Woman between the Family and the Workplace, which was held in 1997. The conference recommended several activities to help women realize psychological equilibrium and stability and outline approaches geared to support and protect the family. She also sponsored the first and second women's conferences held in March 1994 and May 1996 respectively.

I think he's about 5 years old now. Not sure if he's Sheikha Mouzah's son. I think he was born to Sheikh Hamad's third wife.

Sheikha Mouzah lauded for help to displaced Sudanese women
10/14/2004

DOHA: Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Islamic Dawa Organization field Marshal Abdul Rahman Mohammad Hassan Sewar-Ad-Dahab highly praised the contributions made by H H Sheikha Mouzah bint Nasser Al Missned, wife of the Emir H H Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, in support of displaced women in South Sudan.

In a letter addressed to the organization's office in Doha, Field Marshal Sewar Ad-Dahab noted that displaced women, who have fled the woes of war in South Sudan, were in bad need of such a generous support.

An extensive report about the 'displaced women' initiative financed by Sheikha Mouzah has been enclosed with the letter. Sheikha Mouzah has earlier donated QR1m in support of an initiative aimed at providing food, medicines and clothes to displaced women.

Arabs, West must shed bias, says Sheikha Mouzah
Web posted at: 10/4/2004

Source ::: QNA


MICHIGAN: H H Sheikha Mouzah bint Nasser Al Missned , wife of the Emir H H Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, emphasised the significance of dialogue between the Arab world and the west, stressing that channels of communications should be continuously maintained between the two sides, especially at this most critical juncture of history.

In an address to the Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) in Detroit, Michigan, late on Saturday night, Sheikha Mouzah deemed it hard to believe that the acts of a few ‘deviated individuals’ might be taken as a rule to misjudge an entire civilisation or to taint its image, as it was the case in the wake of September 11 terrorist attacks.

“Had not there be some eastern and western intellectual voices calling for the introduction of a new well-oriented form of dialogue, the so-called ‘clash of civilisations’ could have become a tragic reality of the 21st century,” Sheikha Mouzah said. “Indeed, some tragic events have had occasionally marred east-west relations in the past, but the two civilizations have always been engaged in a mutual communication of trading exchange, diplomatic relations, and scientific exploration voyaging,” Sheikha Mouzah said.

“Even in darkest periods of history, Arab reformers, such as Mohammad Abdou (an Arab Egyptian thinker and reformer from the early 20th century) continued to maintain communication with the west,” she added. Such collaborative process of communications and interactions between the two sides has greatly contributed to the enrichment of the Arab civilization, which has had a considerable contribution to the progress and development of the western communities,” Sheikha Mouzah said.
H H Sheikha Mouzah bint Nasser Al Missned greeting a member of the Arab-American anti-Discrimination Committee in Michigan.

Sheikha Mouzah highlighted the tasks shouldered by the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) and similar organisations, as they refute and counter the mistaken perceptions that the east and the west threaten one another culturally and intellectually. “Ordinary people in the Arab world, who most often presume that the west threatens their identity and their national sense of patriotism, sustain a sense of frustration because of the misunderstanding with which they are viewed,” Sheikha Mouzah said.

“For a long time, governments in the region have maintained the position of the custodian or guardian of its nationals, depriving them from their individual qualities and restricting their ability to acquire or practice an argumentative logic of thinking. It is high time for nationals to share in running their societies,” Sheikha Mouzah said, noting that Qatar enjoys rich natural resources and material prosperity that should be broadened to cover the cultural and intellectual aspects and leads to a similar progress in these two areas.

The ADC makes an effective contribution to the setting up of efficient infrastructures necessary for the establishment of a constructive and successful dialogue between various human cultures to counter narrow-mindedness and constrained cultural thought, Sheikha Mouza said, warning that “those who are subjected to any form of discrimination risk losing trust in others”. “Some of them even lose the ability to communicate with others. The elimination of all forms of discrimination is therefore an essential prerequisite to create the appropriate and conducive environment for a fruitful and effective dialogue.”

Sheikha Mouzah said that the ADC seeks to maintain the durability of cultural exchange, noting that Arab Americans, who are descendants of different religious and national origins and who have dedicated their time and effort to work in these organisations, stand now as good examples of success and as models of hope for Arabs to be guided with.

“The problems sustained by contemporary Arab communities solely result from the failure of our systems, mechanisms and attitudes rather than from any born defect or imperfection. We have the ability to attain unity, to chart out a bright future and to march steadily and confidently towards this desirable future,” Sheikha Mouzah said.

The ADC serves as a modern example of how the past and the present might be harmonised, Sheikha Mouzah said. “The ADC is following the steps of our ancestors in matching between the needs, requirements and aspirations of the orient on the one hand and the awareness of how western societies function, to encourage the establishment of a constructive dialogue between the east and the west,” Sheikha Mouzah said, expressing belief that the east sometimes lacks in the resilience to work out such a blend. Sheikha Mouzah stressed the need to establish a culture of development and growth.

A sense of inability to counter the challenges of globalization most often prevail in the east, H.H. Sheikha Mouzah said, expressing belief that interaction between Arabs at home and Arabs living in western countries may help in the restoration of self-confidence.

Qatar committed to reform plan

“The commitment to defend the civil society should not be restricted to Arab-Americans. Arabs in the Arab world should also be engaged in this commitment,” Sheikha Mouzah said. “The State of Qatar is committed to introduce positive changes to cultivate a culture in which every national would bear responsibility and every one would be lend with necessary support and backing to enhance potentials and strengthen self-confidence,” Sheikha Mouzah said.

Concluding, Sheikha Mouzah urged the ADC to share its experience and successes with the Arab world for a better understanding of the west.

On behalf of ADC, dinner chair and president of DTE Energy Robert Buckler and ADC Michigan deputy director Rana Abbas spoke about the gigantic efforts exerted by the ADC to defend the rights of Arab Americans, to prevent discrimination against them and to build bridges of understanding. They hailed Sheikha Mouzah saying that they have been honoured by her presence. “Last month, Qatar celebrated its 33rd year as an independent nation. I am sure Her Highness knows from experience that there is no easy walk to freedom ... That it is importance to fight for the things that matter. That you should never surrender your dreams,’ Buckler said.

The banquet was attended by H E Dr. Abdullah bin Hussein Al Kubaissy; Rector of Qatar University and board member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Social Development H E Dr Sheikha Abdullah Al Misnad, ADC members, and members of the Arab community in Michigan. Sheikha Mouzah later met women members.of the ADC.

I think the situation was much more complex than that. I doubt he would give up his claim to the throne just because he didn't like mummy out in public. If it bothered him that much, he could overthrow daddy and put mummy back under house arrest. :p Besides, Sheikha Mouza had been out and about for a LONG time, she just hadn't been photographed until 2 years ago.
The Emir's 2 older sons had no interest in being CP, thats why it got passed to Jassim. Maybe he really just didn't want to be CP and saw it as a temporary job until his younger brother had completed his training. Its not exactly "fun" being the ruler of a country, and it seemed to me that Sheikh Jassim lacked his father's aggressiveness.
BTW, where did you hear this? Are you from Qatar?

I agree, this theory doesn't make any sense to me either. A member of the Royals (the other forum) also told me Mishaal and Fahd declined to ascend the throne so Jassem became the Crown Prince. Jassem did enjoy his position and is reported to have asked his father to grant him more power but the Emir said no. He also disliked the foreign minister I think and was dissatisfied with how much influence he had, especially over his own father, the Emir. I don't know what was the final straw for Jassem but I do think he would have made a better CP than Tamim.

You know, I read an article where the Emir was quoted as saying that his biggest fear was that one of his sons would eventually come up to him and say, Dad you're getting too old, you're not running the country properly (or something along those lines). Maybe Jassim did want more powers, but I really don't know. Aside from protecting the environment, I don't think he chairs any commitees or anything does he? Tamim was a lot more involved than Jassim even when Tamim wasn't CP. Plus, I think Jassim is very media shy where as Tamim seems to enjoy the spotlight. BTW, why do you think Jassim would have made a better CP? Tamim hasn't been CP for too long, so I don't really have an opinion of him, but he seems to be doing OK so far.
Royal Family drama aside, I DO think that Qatar has made A LOT more progress than the other arab countries. :)

I think tamim will do a good job as a crown prince, but i just think he needs some more time to adjust to his new role. Jasim to me looked like a person who was good but had other plans.

Qatar: Sheikha Mozah, wife of the Emir

Well since the old on eis closed I'll start a new one. But I really draw alot of inspiration from this woman. I like how she is powerful in presenting her ideas and concerns for her ppl, but yet is so modest, beautiful, and a good model of a wife, mother, and royal. I definitely consider her as someone I can look up to.

Here is a new (official) site that has been launched. I just found out about it. http://www.mozahbintnasser.com.qa. Enjoy.

From Gulfnews:

Website dedicated to Qatar Emir's wife is launched By Barbara Bibbo', Correspondent Doha: Web users who want to know more about Qatar and its leadership can log on to a new website www.mozahbintnasser.com.qa.

The website is the first to be dedicated to the accomplishments and vision of Shaikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al Misnad, wife of His Highness Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani.

The website is in three languages - Arabic, English and French - and is a useful tool to learn more about Shaikha Mozah, Qatar's most active figure in education, health and human rights. It is also an important means of understanding the numerous developments taking place in Qatar.

The website was launched on Sunday at Qatar Foundation headquarters, a non-profit organisation intended to promote quality education under the guidance of Shaikha Mozah.

Abdullah Al Kubaisi, director of the office of Shaikha Mozah, inaugurated the site.

"We are overwhelmed with telephone calls and requests from across the world about Shaikha Mozah's activities and commitments," Al Kubaisi said.

"The website will now help us to provide updated information to the people all over the world," he added.

Al Kubaisi said the website offers extensive information about Shaikha Mozah's activities in various organisations, including the Qatar Foundation, Qatar's Supreme Council for Family Affairs, Supreme Education Council and Unesco's International Fund for Iraqi Higher Education.

It provides information about her projects in education, health, family and culture at the national and international levels, her daily activities, her most recent speeches and a timeline for her engagements, he said.

However, one of its most important features is the possibility to contact the Shaikha's office by sending a personalised message. "The website is designed as a means to communicate with the people not only in Qatar, but all over the world and get feedback. It provides room for criticism and suggestions," he added.

It also offers a chance to post messages to Shaikha Mozah and encourages the web users to send remarks and queries.

Visitors can also join a secure mailing list for regular updates.

"Maybe in the future," Al Kubaisi said, "the website could become an interactive tool between Shaikha and people who can get direct replies from her office."
