القطيف هذه الحضارة سيبنيها ابناؤها بكل فخر واعتزاز بعلومهم واخوتهم وتعاضدهم ....my article is looking forward for improvements:
A long time ago, Qatif was divided inregions, and every region lived with different traditions, but had the same cultures. As the urban took over, people moved away and theancestrychanged. Traditions have mixed with each other and varied, while some accepted the change, others rejected it.
الترسبات المتوارثة تقف عقبة امام تقارب ابناء المجتمع ذاته
The old generations are attached to old traditions, which are difficult to change, and new generations cannot cope with that. What Imam Ali said is very important to think of, “Do not educate your children for your era; they are born in an era that is not your era.”New generations experiencenatural changes and should not be forced to live withsome traditions that remained with old generations.
Unfortunately, we have not changed our thoughts, ideas, or ways of thinkingin order to get rid ofthese bad habits. But rather kept them with us and faced the decline of our society’s development.
Nowadays, whena person speaks or writes, some people usually do not consider their words, unless they arewell knownor from their region. They just look at the person who wrote these words rather than the article and itscontent.
كثير من الخلافات بسبب الترسبات السابقة وتخطيها مازال صعبا
However, the socio-economic level of living diminishesour thinking, and sadly holds us back. Some still have close minded point of views, for instance, “Oh, he’s poor. He cannot marry my daughter.” Unfortunately, we are raised with racism running in our veins, our standards of living, our ways of thinking, and our religion. Racism is affecting the youth.
As we grow, we do think of these things seriously! What are our benefits of taking these thoughtsseriously? Well, we all grew up close to each other, when something happens between us, then, the racism jumps up.These problems become serious when we have more friends.
A lot of fights happen between friends because of this particular typeof racism. We are teenagers, and these situations affect us. Some peopleare directed by their families to live without racism, but others have not been directed and that is affecting their lives.Our society now is in a critical situation. Even if we work together, we still think, “How could this person be our leader?” It is because racism grows within us. We do not co-operateto make these situations go to our advantage. If wewere going to maintain our ways of thinking, we would not make any furtherprogress,because racism is holding us back.
Moreover, our minds are still narrow; we have to think in a wider way.
What is wrong if someone proposes to a girl from “A higher standard of living?”

What if one of them is from a well-known family and the other is not? What did he/she do wrong to prevent them from getting engaged? We hear about a lot of these situations, for example: “He follows another “Mrje’a”!” It is because we still do not think “out of the box.” Our only concern is how wealthy the person is, where does he comes from, what is his religion, or he refers to whom?
In addition, usually a lot of high school graduates are forced to study a major they do not like. It is because their family or society wants them to study that major. If they like another major, they tell them that major is not wanted here, or has no future. Is that how we want to build our future? With studying a major we do not like, or forced to study, just to satisfy our families or society?
In the end, all of these problems need to be fulfilled in order for make our lives simpler, and make our relationships better than they are. We hope to get rid of these primitive minded thoughtsand this devouring type of racism to make Qatif a better city.
