The ceremony was organized by the Deanship of Student Affairs, in the presence of many university vice-deans as well as deans. His Excellency inaugurated the accompanying exhibition as well.

On this occasion, Al Solamy said, “It is such a pleasure to meet you today, to celebrate our great national day again which was a few days ago. We celebrate this day every year to thank God that He helped our Founding King, HRM Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Saud, ‘may God rest his soul in peace,' in the unification of this great nation. I welcome you as you continue his career of success and add to it. You are the bright and rich future by God’s Will.”

If countries consider and measure their civilizational progress, urbanization, and what they have provided and achieved for their citizens, then the evidence and the figures attest that this country has shortened the time, reduced the distance, and was able in eighty-seven years to provide what many countries have not offered in a much longer time. No doubt, because the development plans in this blessed country have focused on bringing all the good things to mankind in its successive plans. It also works in accordance with the vision of the successive leaders of this country for these noble goals, especially after turning a scattered tribal society in the Arabian Peninsula to be one civil system. 

This historical turn was led by the courage and spirit of the late monarch King Abdul Aziz 'may God rest his soul in peace.' His courageous historical stand formed a palette of unity, love and civilizational establishment in a distinct civil system based on a well-known harmony between the preservation of the spiritual-religious principles. Before this act, people of the Arabian Peninsula had experienced years of misery and poverty where there were chaos, divisions, backwardness, and wars. 

For that, the comparative vision of the way of life in Saudi Arabia will find evidence of this harmony clearly in the Saudi society. On the same token, our country has all the elements of modern civilization with all of its various aspects while maintaining its cultural heritage, and Islamic moralities that always support the needs and interests of the human. And this is considered by some to be a difficult and sometimes an impossibly unachievable equation, but the remarkable practical achievement of it was seen and accomplished by this great nation.   

The brief, meaningful words by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz when he was congratulating the citizens on the 86th national day has reminded me of many indications. His Royal Majesty said on his Twitter page, "Every year, the homeland is safe and precious, and our journey of building and development continues to improve our country, its renaissance, and its stability. Every year, the people of this nation are loyal and proud of their homeland and their belongings."

Al Solamy: The Kingdom is clearly and courageously presenting the true message of Islam through its multiple positions and stances; not the corrupted, distorted image of gang-esque organizations that claim to belong to it

The first thoughtful words of the tweet indicate the value and importance of safety in peoples' lives unambiguously. The absence of this value will stop the process of development. In the second indication, HRM -may God protect him- is making a clear declaration towards the continuation of the process of civilized development, which in his auspicious reign, are managed with awareness and control. This has resulted in making the Saudi citizens proud of their country and praying for it. 

In addition to this, the wise and courageous decisions taken by His Royal Majesty have made a glorious and profound impact on the blessed nation. A nation that extends an olive branch to all those who wish for peace and development, and a firm hand to all those who seek to undermine the security and development of our precious country. Such policy came from a historical depth and a civilized understanding of the history of this country, which has embraced an Arabian Islamic civilization for one and a half millennia. The light of Islam started from the grounds of this country guiding humanity to the values of righteousness, morality, and peace. During that time, it has never allowed any external enemy nor internal enemy to ruin its security and prosperity. In this regard, our precious country continues to offer a model example of Islamic centrism that shows the values of righteousness and goodness and tries to correct the distorted acts by the false claimers of this true religion.  

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is clearly and courageously presenting the true message of Islam through its multiple positions and stances; not the corrupted, distorted image of gang-esque organizations that claim to belong to it. These positions will be recorded in history with letters of light for this great nation. 

At the end, on my behalf and all the university's employees, I would like to present sincere congratulations to His Royal Majesty, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, to HRH the Crown Prince, and to all Saudi people, asking God the Almighty to protect this country and to help the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in preserving the security and development of this great nation.
