Doha: Ooredoo hosted a Ramadan lecture for its employees by globally recognised Islamic scholar Dr Yasir Qadhi (pictured).
The lecture at Ooredoo’s HQ1 building in West Bay aimed to enable staff to understand the spirit of the holy month.
It was delivered in English, with key messages translated to Arabic.
Fatima Sultan Al Kuwari, Director, Public Relations and Communications, Ooredoo, said: “Having someone inspirational like Dr Qadhi was important to our holy month programme.
“We wanted to educate and remind our employees of the teachings of Islam and the meaning of the holy month, and to celebrate the spirit of this time.”
