The Islamic University’s Department of Sports Activities makes an unwavering and sincere endeavor to empower students to create a healthy society

The Islamic University of Najaf has paid great attention to sporting events among its students because it contributes to spreading the values of integrity, sportsmanship, and respect for oneself and others. To spread it to all members of society, our university opened the doors of its open and closed sports halls to all forms of sports and encouraged students to practise them on a regular basis in order to develop their abilities and prepare them to be an active energy in society. In addition, the Department of Sports Activities at the Islamic University prepared quarterly and annual plans for various sporting events among male and female students. In doing so, the university made serious efforts for this under the direct guidance of the university president, Prof. Dr. Ammar Al-Salami, and with direct implementation from the head of the department, Dr. Jabbar Rahima Al-Kaabi, who made intensive efforts with his team in the Department of Sports Activities to hold team and other tournaments, as well as participate in tournaments organised by the Ministry of Higher Education at the national or local level.
Dr. Al-Kaabi told the university media that “youth at the university have the ability to actively and continuously give, to work continuously, and to engage in permanent activity to develop their talents, which is reinforced by the vision and guidance of the university president, Dr. Al-Salami, who provided all the capabilities for our students to participate in these various sports with the aim of advancing future youth towards purposeful participation.”
Dr. Al-Kaabi added, “The current academic year will be full of many championships and competitions between departments, colleges, and the two branches of the university in the governorates of Diwaniyah and Babel, and it will also be full of participation in the activities scheduled by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research at the national and local levels.” The activities department has held several championships.
