His Highness recounted a number of his findings during his research on the roots of Arab culture, where he found that the poetry of the Arabs is the same as that of the Arameans, who apparently took it away from them.  

At the opening of Al Hira Literary Council, His Highness addressed the importance of Nabatian poetry and its role in documenting incidents and triumphs and the transfer of science, such as geography and others, and not only in conveying the feelings of love and passion, pointing out that Nabataean poetry is called the popular because it reaches people and spreads.
