Reading is brain food; the key to wisdom and the way to knowledge. It broadens your mind, give you clear insights and open up new horizons to understand what’s going on around us. This was the basis for our visionary leader’s initiative to make 2016 a year of reading in order to let such a good habit play a key role in the life of Emirati people and those who live in this good land. Reading should be a daily routine to develop your abilities and take you to better intellectual levels.
The initiative of HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan was not launched in a vacuum. It was a part of a long-established cultural approach adopted by the UAE to build capacity of a man who is qualified to deal with life events and developments, learn from the past, develop the present and predict the future. This is the way to build a strong ambitious innovative society that is not affected by destructive thoughts or misleading groups.
Reading enlightens your mind and soul, expanding your mind and enabling you to understand and explain things and take right actions. It will turn from a regular habit to a delightful journey to discover many worlds and present them to people in a tiptop shape.
The path to build future generation and reach the top starts with reading; the first order of God to His Messenger Mohammed-peace be upon him- in the first verse of the Holy Quran “Read in the name of your God, the Creator”.
We do not need more evidence to show how important reading is. So, from now on I will read on a daily basis and choose a set of books within a timeline fashion to obey God and His Messenger and respond to the initiative of our president to make the Emiratis people of knowledge, civilization and openness.
