Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali al-Thani tweeted a message to the people of Qatar requesting them to unite to “be the messengers of peace”.
“To my family, the children, the businessmen, and all the people of Qatar. I invite you to meet to be messengers of wisdom and peace, and advocates for the uniting of the hearts,” he tweeted on Sunday night.
Al-Thani requested a national meeting with him regarding a crisis “which we can no longer remain silent on”, he said in a one-page statement released on Sunday.
The Qatari royal family member said the situation surrounding the crisis was “getting worst” and is “pushing us to a fate we do not want to reach”.
Bin Ali also said that Saudi Arabia’s King Salman was keen on the safety of Qatar and its people. The Qatari sheikh has called on the people of Qatar to communicate with him and set a date for a national meeting later.
ENGLISH STATEMENT IN FULL:
Abdullah bin Ali bin Abdullah Al-Thani
By The Name of God, the merciful
My Brothers and Sons in beloved Qatar:
May peace, God’s blessing and mercy be upon you, hereafter:
Thank God, May prayers and peace be on prophet Mohamed, the noblest prophet and messenger.
Oh God, may we be of those who know the truth and follow it, and those who see the falsehood and avoid it; Make us a source of good and block evil.
I hurt deeply while watching the situation getting worse, it has reached to a point of direct incitement against the stability of the Gulf, interference in others affairs, which pushes us to a destiny that we do not want, as what happened in countries that entered the adventure tunnel, and ended in chaos and destruction with scattered losses.
According to the current situation; I call on the wise sons of the family, and the prestigious Qatari people to sit in a brotherly, family and national meeting to discuss the crisis, and what we would be able to do in order to get everything back on track, and enforce the Gulf cooperation.
Brothers, I do not do this as a way of pretending or showing off, but I was optimistic when I saw the support and facilitation provided to my people, and found opened doors. I met the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdul Aziz twice, whom I found in him a deep care and concern for Qatar and its people’s safety, and it is also our responsibility not to keep silent in this crisis.
Please contact me privately on my E-mail:
We need to set time and place for the meeting, may God help us to serve our country and preserve our Gulf unity.
God is the supporter.
Oh, God, have I informed? For God is my witness.
