AQU remains a lighting solid edifice on the principle of sharing knowledge Through the generations

I was born in Jayyous, a Palestinian village in the district of Qalqilya, in which the justice-injustice conflict exists since medieval ages when Napoléon Bonaparte crossed it heading to occupy ʻAkkā, followed by the Israeli occupation which builds the Apartheid Wall that cut its land and separated it from the sea’s breeze, casting shadows on its remaining acres. I was born with a passion to knowledge and learning which I accomplished today by graduating from Al-Quds University, from the Faculty of Law.

After nineteen years of work at different jobs and promotions, it was not easy for me to return to study at a university with classmates and even some of the teachers who are way younger than me, a serious challenge that I had to overcome. This challenge firstly began when an employee at the department of admissions asked me to whom my application was, without even imagining that it could be mine, and she was more shocked when I handed her my documents and saw my experiences before she went on saying: “for God’s sake, why do you need all of this!”.

Perhaps, the incident that occurred in the department of admissions was a strong incentive to proceed with this challenge. And, maybe the answer for herspontaneous question was me achieving an honor and the first rank in my class in the first semester. Indeed, it was not easy for me to combine university needs with family and job needs, but because of what God blessed me with, the support of my beloved family, and the understanding of the faculty I achieved my dream.

Probably, law, in particular, is a whole world in itself. The Faculty of Law is not just an academic institution, yet it is a school that enlightens people’s lives by giving them the ability to see what goes behind the walls of light and darkness. We, during our studying years, discovered who we are, and our knowledge and cognition grew more and more. All of that happened because of the effort of teachers and advisors who combined the science of law with its appropriate human culture to graduate creative generations.

This is how days passed, and they are still passing, yet Al-Quds University remains a lighting solid edifice that is steady on the principle of sharing knowledge from one generation to another thus somehow someday the sun of freedom will rise from it to lighten the Palestinian sky.
