Dr. Lamia Baashen
Many of us think, as I thought before my visit to the center of Mohammed bin Nayef for advice and care, that what is going on inside is just a few of the clerks sitting in front of a terrorist trying to convince him of his intellectual mistakes, and then release him after the end of lessons and advice.
But the surprise that we have seen at home dispelled that simple stereotype, leaving a strong impression of the value and importance of this center as part of the system of maintaining national security.
This Center is in the process of dealing with the intellectual distortions of those engaged in the line of terrorism in a different path, since it is easy to choose powers with these deviants and punish and retaliate them, the center chose the difficult path, being the best and strongest and most generous and most effective, the path of tolerance and containment Derived from the guidance of our great religion and the message of the Lord and the approach of Muhammad peace be upon him. It is true that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "Allah has the greatest joy in the repentance of his servant when he repents to one of you. He was on his trip to the land of Falah.
When we learned the profound meaning of this joy in repentance, we can understand the motives and foundations of establishing this unique center. , There are strong positions in life where it is advisable to pour water on fire. The Mohammed bin Nayef Center is an educational reform institution supported by the Ministry of the Interior with great generosity to contain all Saudis affiliated with terrorist groups, where intellectual treatment and psychological rehabilitation are carried out in an atmosphere of freedom, self-confidence and a sense of individual responsibility. When the individual is transferred from prison to the center by court order, he is transformed from a "prisoner" to a "beneficiary." His cell is changed to a chalet.
The center also grants the beneficiaries 10 thousand riyals when they graduate, in addition to 50 thousand subsidy at the desire to marry, and to cover all the costs of Hajj. This extremist group is subject to programs that uproot ideological doctrinal convictions on the basis that they are forced to follow only what they accept, not by coercion, to consolidate alternative convictions. The philosophy of advice is the freedom of choice, with the individual being informed of the course of events and the truths of the faith. Counseling is not only legal, but also interferes with social, psychological and guidance, which are conducted through specialized sessions led by a team of scientists and expertise in various scientific fields. The Center holds courses in economic, historical, political, self-development and plastic arts. The center also cares about the physical health of the beneficiaries. In addition to providing healthy meals, it provides them with medical care and allows them to practice all kinds of sport, to stimulate the muscles and release anger shipments.
The Center’s relationship with the beneficiary does not cease even after his departure to encourage and support him in the process of integration with his community environment, and provides him with services that help him facilitate this integration and support him and his family financially and morally. In this climate of support and tolerance, the lost son has the isolation he needs to review himself and his thoughts and the psychological serenity that is fueled by the sessions of the community with positive thinking, hope, love and giving. The center is a station that moves from misguidance to repentance and righteous thought. It is transformed from an individual who is devoid of thought and hard-hearted, to a good citizen who is qualified to live well.
