My study aims firstly, to contribute to the theory of enriching foreign (western) literature that may have abandoned the thought of Abdullah al-Nafisi and his intellectual influence in the Gulf region’; secondly, to identify the strengths and weaknesses of Al-Nafisi by studying his ideas; and thirdly, to contribute to the practical work of presenting a paper to the decision-makers, which will help them to understand and read the religious-political map of the region.
