A Letter to the students from Professor Dr. Ali Muhiddin Qaradaqhi, the concessionaire and the president of the trustees' council and the university council.
Dear Sons and Daughters,
Peace and blessings of God be with you
I am honored to introduce you to some fatherly and sincere directions which are: Knowledge is the basis of every progress and civilization, and the key of empowerment and succession, without it, there will be neither civilization nor progress. But the originative and influential knowledge can be achieved only by the one who gives his life to it, lives in its hermitage, and loves its chancel; therefore I wish you be of those brilliants.Knowledge has its keys, values, and methods. The university is one of its keys; so you should make the utmost use of the professors, the books, the libraries and the techniques of the Age (the internet and the like).Its method depends on the comprehension, deep understanding and accurate looking because knowledge cannot be transferred but it grows through free thinking, originality, theorization and the commitment to the constant scientific research, making use of every good ancient and useful modem method. It is worth mentioning that the human civilizations are series constructed one over the other.As for the values of knowledge, one can say that the most important of which are: honesty, truthfulness, faithfulness, dedication, the acknowledgement of knowledge to its originator, and spreading it among its seekers. Thus, my hope is great that you will hold the keys, values, and the methods of knowledge so that you can be pioneers, stars and suns of knowledge.The university level is the most dangerous, important, and fertile of all the rest of the educational levels. Therefore if you do not invest it and make use of it to form your scientific personality, you will lose yourself and you will regret it later. So I advise you not to graduate from the university unless you have placed yourself on the road of knowledge and creativity.
