The verbal slogan of the National Day is inspired by the founder’s poetry:

We are free in the siyali nights, our gifts rejoice all those who are in despair

What is meant is that Qatar plays an active role in building a world of goodness, friendliness and peace among nations.

The second part was used, “Our gifts make all the oppressed rejoice”, in accordance and consistent with a speech that was used as a clear message from His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of the country, may God protect him, in his first speech at the Shura Council in November 2013

Where he said: Qataris have been known since ancient times for their good manners, generosity, humility, speaking less, doing more, and supporting the oppressed; Mighty, dear, calling for reform, intercessor for the oppressed, taking initiatives aimed at bridging the rift between countries and peoples and replacing discord by reconciliation.
