Sending flowers to Qatar

Qatar is a peninsula which separates from the Saudi Arabia territory, to the East of the Arabian Peninsula, going into the Persian Gulf. A region covered mostly by desert whose economy has grown at staggering levels over the last decades. Thanks to gas and oil exploration, in only a century, Qatar went on from being a poor area to be designated the richest country in the world in the year 2014. Currently, the country works at an unstoppable pace to prepare the 2022 FIFA World Cup, with a total investment of 200 million dollars.

An enormous wealth that has permitted the development of infrastructures such as the ones for the World Cup, but that has also brought with it a great crisis of the traditional Qatari values. The society of this country is mostly Muslim Wahhabi, which means that they live under a strict interpretation of the Quran and the Sunnah, basing their governance, jurisprudence and religion on it and forming an inseparable whole. In fact, this fundamentalist branch of Islam was first adopted in Qatar and later extended to all Saudi Arabia, a loyal defender of this doctrine. Contrary to what it may seem, alcohol is legal, but a special permit is required and it must never be consumed in public.

As for culture, Qatar shares musical, literary and artistic tastes with other countries from the Persian Gulf. It was here where, in 1966, the first television channel in the Arab world, Al Jazeera, was founded, which is currently independent and broadcasts its programming also in English.
