    I am glad to learn that QFI is providing all sorts of supports to those who are interested to know Arabic language and Arab culture. Fortunately I worked in the then State Electricity Dept. of Qatar from 1979 to 1991 as an Engineer. Now I am living in my native country of Bangladesh and also some time in USA with US immigration. I am very much interested in both Classical and Modern Arabic language and fully involved in learning this great language since few years back of my own with lot of study materials from Madina University, Cairo University and USA.

    Side by side I am sharing this knowledge/information of Arabic language whatever I earned with few interested people in Bangladesh within a range of my personal level.

    I have a mind to set up an Arabic language learning center in Dhaka ( the capital city of Bangladesh ) and so I look forward to hear from you how QFI can help me.

    Maa -assalam

    Mohd.
