Everyone realizes that the father is the first shepherd of the institution of life, and he is the construction worker if we want a wall to protect us, and the firefighter if we are caught on fire from everywhere we call for help, and the gardener who tends the flowers of life in its bud, and he is the soldier who assigned himself to protect, guard and watch over the comfort of his children and their safety.

In my life, he supported me from the beginning and was confident of my success and valued all my ambitions. He also understood my efforts and fatigue. His love, encouragement and looks of pride that I saw in his eyes led me to many accomplishments.

As for Sheikha Al-Mazrouei, a doctoral student in liver transplantation using microbeads and stem cells at King’s College London, she also does not forget the merits of her father, “Saif Al-Mazrouei”, and says about him: “My father was not just a father who provided for our needs, my brothers and I, and our care, but he was a friend, advisor and helper. And the corrector for our simple mistakes, as he sacrificed his time in exchange for seeing the fruit of his labor grow in front of him with pride. Our achievements are enough to make him forget the years of fatigue and effort he made, and our success with my brothers is a success for me and my mother, who did not skimp on her time and effort to support us all.” She explains: “The presence of the father in the children’s lives is very important, because the children need encouragement and stimulation permanently, and in the absence of the father or even his preoccupation, the path is lost from under the children’s feet. Conscious follow-up to the children throughout the year is the key to their superiority.”
