The time has come to turn a new leaf in the history of our nation
It is a mixed feeling to see the outgoing Emir of Qatar and welcoming a new Emir. On 25 June 2013, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani handed over power to his son, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.
Social media is overwhelmed by expectedly positive comments (not only by countrymen but also expatriates) to Sheikh Hamad on his achievements to turn modern Qatar, his dedication, his greatness, his humanitarian and his service to Qatar and to make what Qatar today. I am fortunate enough to be a witness of Qatar development during the last 5 years under Sheikh Hamad leadership.
Barakallahu fiikum Sheikh Hamad and mabrook Sheikh Tamim. May Qatar continue to be prosperous!
