Children and young people from across Qatar who inspire their communities through their behaviours, actions and strong moral character will be celebrated on Tuesday, September 29, at Qatar Foundation’s Akhlaquna Day.
The Akhlaquna award, now in its third cycle, was established by Qatar Foundation (QF) in 2017 to highlight the timeless and universal values exhibited by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and recognise those aged from 15 to 24 years, whose projects encapsulate the importance of good morals and values, and encourage others to exhibit them as well.
For 2020, QF has also launched Akhlaquna Junior, an award that honours school students aged from seven to 14 who uphold and demonstrate the morals and values that are the core of Akhlaquna and illustrate to their peers how they can be translated into actions, mindsets and practices that benefit society.
On Tuesday, September 29, at 7:30pm, the winners of both awards will be announced at QF’s Ceremonial Court to mark Akhlaquna Day with the public being invited to watch the hybrid event online as it is livestreamed at www.akhlaquna.qa.
A public vote has been held to determine which of the three Akhlaquna award finalists will be named the winner, with three students being awarded in three age-group categories under Akhlaquna Junior.
Akhlaquna is defined by four core values – mercy, honesty, generosity and tolerance – and aims to cultivate a generation who place good moral character and strong ethics at the centre of their lives and recognise how values, knowledge and fulfilment are interconnected.
It reflects QF’s commitment to inspiring children and young people and all members of society to be active, socially-aware, compassionate and thoughtful citizens who improve their communities through their behaviours and the example they set, and who demonstrate the qualities of leaders and change-makers.
Since its establishment, the Akhlaquna initiative has evolved with the aim of creating a ripple effect that spreads beyond Qatar, heightening recognition of the positive change that demonstrating good moral character and behaviours makes possible.
