Department of History

Head of Department

Praise be to Allah, and prayer and peace be upon the Prophet Muhammad-the last Prophet and the best man among all creatures-and his family and his companions.

History is a mirror of nations, reflecting their past and translating their present. Nations that have no history do not exist. Nations get their strength from history and die without it. From history we learn lessons. God says, “"Travel in the land and see what was the end of those who rejected truth."

History provides an inspiration for the future in the light of the Lord's constant orders that do not change or alter and not favor anyone. It helps motivation, revives the spirit, and creates competition in goodness, righteousness.

History also helps us to know nations and peoples in terms of strengths and weaknesses: education and ignorance: the vitality and the recession, and so of other nation characteristics. Just then we are introduced to good historical examples who have entered history through its greatest gate and have left us clean shining pages, that can never be forgotten through the ages.

The pages of history teach us the management of the present, and the policy of the future. Today is the history of yesterday's policy, and the policy of today is tomorrow's history.


And we pray to God Almighty to have a better tomorrow which represents an extension of our long history, our  outstanding heritage, to be full of achievements, prosperity development, full of the spirit of love and loyalty to our beloved homeland and our King. Abraham, peace be upon him, said: “"My Lord, make this a secure city and provide its people with fruits - whoever of them believes in Allah and the Last Day." (Al-Baqarah, Verse 126).
