God Almighty says (Surely in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find comfort), then we started to add science, which is the pillar of peoples progress. Universities and scholarships are in every field. Moreover, we filled souls with culture, and culture disciplines the souls. Some say: Thank you Sultan for what you have offered. I would say, the bowl is flooded, because this is my preoccupation.
