FANAR - Qatar Islamic Culture Center
Doha, Qatar
FANAR was chosen as our name because of our high-profile mission; to act as a guiding light to whole of mankind, and to help all non-Arabs to have a better understanding of Islam and culture of Qatar.

FANAR is governmental organization that presents culture to all world through a variety of activities such as Exhibitions, tours of the centre, visits to the mosque and Arabic language Courses.

FANAR is a Qatari milestone, known for its Islamically inspired architectural designs and amazing ornaments with a beautiful outlook of the city Doha. From the rich Qatari heritage of sailing at large, the lighthouse was a tangible way of returning to land safely.

FANAR now uses this exact metaphor to act as a beacon of light to humanity, hoping to present culture to feed and nurture the soul.
