Has anyone ever met any friendly Qataris?

By singleguy

I've been here just a few months and have never met any friendly Qataris. Most of my encounters with locals have left me with the impression that they are all arrogant and unfriendly. Anyone care to put forward their views?

No need to argue with ignorant and fightsty people who are desperate to show they are educated (I know 4 languages, we learnt in sociology...), you'll always be on the losing side.

I won't stoop to your level.

Remember, according to u and others on this post, we r ALLLLLL unfriendly...so why is it that ur mad cuz we met YOURRRRRR stereotype? Hehehehe...u call me an animal, I'll start behaving like one....plain and simple....u know we r just trying to fit ur profile and not disappoint u.

Let's face it, u got cornered, u had no excuse, and u had no way out, so u resorted to calling me names...Just like before....Destructive Criticism at its best, with no way forward...KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK and keep calling ppl names and providing them with destructive criticism, it’ll solve the world hunger epidemic, lol.

Oh, and good luck to those kids that have to learn from u!!!

Hehehe....ummmmm.....WRONG!!!!....ppl should accept "CONSTRUCTIVE” criticism ONLY unless they're idiots!!!...destructive criticism is just plain ol’ BASHING and nothing more...how do u know the difference??? SIMPLE!!! One offers a solution or at least a way forward, the other just nags the hell out of u and doesn't help in any way, just whines.

NOBODY is perfect...BUT NOBODY SHOULD BE FORCED TO CHANGE!!! Cuz perfection is a relative term, what's perfect to someone might not be perfect for all...besides, everybody has the right to live by their own standard and only change where and when they choose to change as it fits THEIR lifestyle....NOT YOURS!!!!...our way of life is (((OUR)))) way of life...we r doing it cuz it suites US, we r living it the way we want to live it, NOT cuz it's better or worse than anybody else's, we could care less if its better or worse than ur way...but funny how ur assuming automatically that ur way is better and u HAVE TO change us or as I like to call it IMPOSE IT on us....NOW WHO'S THE CONCEITED ONE???

Piece of advise...NEVER HELP ANYONE WHO DOESN'T WANNA BE HELPED....Whatever issues we have and wanna change, we will change 'em on our own terms, with the help of the ones (((we choose))) to help us....u cannot just force ur so called "Help" down ppl's throats or it'll simply be thrown back right at ur face.

I totally agree with you..well all of you just attack the day with a smile and enthusiasim. Take advice from people getting the results you desire. Hang with great people. Speak up when others are hurting themselves or others with their actions/information. Sure its easier to be silent and say ‘gotta let people learn’ but that aint the loving thing to do. Be honest and speak up and remember that those who mind do not matter and those that matter do not mind.

"There is no compulsion in religion..." (Quran, Chapter 2, Verse 256)

This statement above is supported by another Quran saying (with meaning English translation):

"...If God had willed, He would have made you all in one nation and one religion), but that He (God) left you in different religions to compete in good deeds and society benefits. The return of all of you is to God; then He (God) will inform you about that in which you differ".

I often find it, that ppl who do not accept criticism r mostly ppl I wouldn't want to know in the first place…just arrogant and proud individuals who love the sound of their own voice!!! Most importantly they r VERY conceited in that they assume their way to live life, culture, behavior, etiquette, system, method, scheme, manner, etc is PERFECT....u have to constantly sing their praises or they threaten to land you in trouble....they live in a giant delusion of a place called "a mighty bubble".

"IF UR STRUGGLING HERE, IT'S ALL ON U!!!!!"

OK brother, you are perfect and the wrong is all ours. After all we are the foreigners. We better say you are perfect or you'll kick us out. See, this is the kind of arrogant attitude that will forever hold you back.

I remember learning in Sociology back when I was in college that these ppl suffer because they dunno how to adapt "due to their weak social skills"....a person that is socially developed should be able to survive even living with the Eskimos...and differences, whether for better or worse shouldn’t hinder u from interacting with ppl around, unless u lack the social skills to do so….in short….IF UR STRUGGLING HERE, IT'S ALL ON U!!!!!

"Also, see my generation and my colleagues that were with me in school, all matured very fast and we all have strong hopes to build this country beyond imagination."

Sorry to disillusion you brother but I urge you to take off your rose-tinted glasses for one second and see things for what they are.

Your generation is in no way comparable to this generation.

Your generation did not go through the extraordinary transformation Qatar is experiencing today.

The children of your generation were not so horribly spoiled and materialistic. They were not brought up by an army of maids and nannies but by their parents. They did not pig on fast/junk food and sweets. They did not spend their whole time in amusement parks. They did not treat their teachers as they would their maids. They were rewarded for their hard work not spoonfed exam answers to cover their low level. They had no reason to feel superior to foreigners.

Sorry to burst your bubble brother but things are way worse than what you think...

When they like you they are very nice and helpful! We lived in many parts of GCC and always had local friends.

Being a teacher is probably one of the most diffecult jobs ever, that is why i think teacher's reward should be the highest, not from what you would get from the school but I mean from god.

As for those kids, there are some areas in Qatar, the kids are very stubborn and bit tough probably the area you are teaching in and I personally studied on those schools, where young kids act really bad... but i also studied in the west, where i saw some of the attribute you are describing above in some college boys.

Also, see my generation and my colleagues that were with me in school, all matured very fast and we all have strong hopes to build this country beyond imagination.

I don't know about adult Qataris but let me tell a thing or two about the coming generation of Qataris.

I have taught English at a boy's independent school on the outskirts of Doha and let me tell you I've literally been through hell and back!

Obviously most of my grade 4 boy students were locals. They were extremely rude and unprincipled.

They had not a speck of respect for their teachers whom they routinely cursed, insulted, hit and spat on.

Not allowing them to leave the classroom for say going to the bathroom had them curse our parents or hold shoes up to our faces!

They made paperplanes out of worksheets and canon balls they shot at each other with elastic bands.

They had cigarettes hidden in their shoes.

They played this disgusting game of touching each other's bottoms in class.

They fought like wild animals, they could kill each other.

They used such filthy words as slut or the F-word shamelessly.

They had very sticky fingers and kept stealing my stuff. They were very good at it! I don't know how they did it. I never saw them doing it but just noticed on leaving the classroom that most of my sweets were gone!

Oh did I mention that no sweet meant no work to them! No money no business, that's how they functioned!

They lied as they breathe.

They hurled racist comments at their few non-Qatari classmates.

I've seen it all with those boys!

This boy-teaching experience left me totally depressed and heart-broken. I felt extremely sad for those boys and couldn't help thinking of how corrupt the coming generation is going to be...

I think it's only because of the lack of the language and the differences in culture.

I traveled a lot went to US and UK, there are people there who wouldn't even smile if I smiled, or say hi,just because I am Muslim and Middle Eastern, yet I found other friendly people, it's just a matter of time and knowing how interact with the society around you.

I didn't stereotype all Americans,all British from the very few first incidents I had, nor you should stereotype and generalize all Qataris :)

This whole thing is very subjective, and will always depend on circumstances.

In my interaction with Qataris, I found them honest and decent people, but this is my impression, I am Omani, so it may have to do with that.

I take some offence though from what gam2029 wrote, what you have experienced can not be generalised on the whole country. I have a very bad experience in Tokyo, but that does not mean all Japanese are bad. In every nation, there are the good, the bad, and the outright horrible. As for not being able to sue the Sheikh owner of a mall, no one told you that Qatar is a parliamentary democracy, the country is a monarchy, and this is how monarchies without parliament are, so be a man and deal with it as men would.

But anyone who has visited NY knows that you can't judge all NY'ers by a few of them. Your attitude has more to do with the personality of those you meet than their nationality does. If you are treated badly, don't generalize it and include everyone in that race, sex or shirt color with that bad behavior or you will find that YOUR behavior will devolve and it will constantly be reflected back onto you. If you are a respectful,kind and friendly person, then you will meet that kind of person most of the time. I lived in the Bronx and in ritzy areas and people are people. You will always get back what you are putting out.

It is another pre-requisite and similar to owning a landcruiser except that it is an instruction on the passport application that to be Qatari you must be rude and arrogant to non-nationals.

What a load. Generally when dealing with anyone your own behavior is reflected in how you are treated. Granted there are a few people everywhere that could use a bit of manners but I wouldnt put it to an entire nationality.

All praise is due to Allah, the most Merciful, the most Gracious.

The question that has been asked is perhaps the most important question on this forum. After all, living along with Qataris is unavoidable while living in Qatar.

Being a Muslim, especially one who believes that an Arab is no better than a non-Arab, expect by degrees of piety, I can tell the questioner that most of the Qataris he will encounter will be oppressive, arrogant, and abusive.

I have no intentions of boasting and neither do I stereotype people. However, this is coming from a person who has lived across the globe & interacted with people from different cultures, nationalities & color. I grew up in Bahrain, lived in South East Asia, spent a considerable time in Western countries & in none of those places did I find people who were more arrogant & oppressive than the Qataris.

I will relate my personal observations & experiences.

1) On any Friday (Family day), visit City Center as a single male and you will barred entry by the guards. Hang around the entrance for a few moments until you witness how Qatari males are allowed entry without any objection. This is a generally accepted racism & oppression against non-Qataris supported by the Qataris. Visit any Western nation and if you experience this, you can sue the mall's owner for racism. Can you sue the Al-Thani owner of the mall?

2) At any traffic round-about during a traffic jam, while you are stuck in traffic, park your vehicle in such a way that the person behind you is unable to maneuver his vehicle & create an illegal third lane between the lanes. Now, wait for a Qatari to approach you from behind in his Toyota Land Cruiser. You will hear his honking, look in your rear-view mirror and you will see him waving at you to move aside while he has full knowledge that his maneuvering in-between traffic is illegal. Remain calm and persistent and do not move your vehicle out of his way. In a few minutes you will witness the Qatari get out of his car, knock on your car window or try to force open your car door. If you are lucky he will just verbally abuse you, otherwise, be prepared for some public slapping. I have witnessed this multiple times, especially against the poor drivers who are from the Indian sub-continent. This is abuse & oppressive. Visit the Industrial area to witness the public slapping at the hand of the Qataris against the truck drivers.

Now, do you think if you turned the tables around & it was the Qatari blocking your way, you could honk at him & then get out of your car and ask him to move aside while he is chatting on his cell phone with his girlfriend? My advice, don't hold your breath.

3) Visit any government office, especially those where you will find the poor laborers from the Asian community. Make it easy for yourself & visit a health center in the morning where health certificates are issued for visa renewal purposes, for example. Around 8AM is a good time. Now, the laborers will form a line to take their turns to get to the window & submit their passports. If there is a Qatari on the other side of the window, you may observe how slow he/she will process the applications. Anyhow, you will soon realize that some of the laborers waiting in line will have to wait a good while simply because of the large number of people. If you are lucky, you may get to see a Qatari approach the line to get some of his paper-work processed. Will he be considerate & wait in line behind all the laborers who have been waiting patiently? No. He will cut all the people, move ahead of the line, speak in Arabic, and hand in his documents. This too is oppression.

To those who do not understand why it is oppression, I will try to explain. The Qatari sees people waiting ahead of him for their turn. And knows that because of his race, no one will question him or raise an objection if he decides to ignore them and cut the line. Does he show consideration? No. Does he realize that those who are waiting ahead of him have an equal right to get their documents processed just like him? No. Why? Because to him they are not his equal. So what does he do? He does what any oppressive man would do to whom he can oppressive, he takes advantage of the status quo & benefits himself at the expense of others. THIS is oppression.

4) Those who have worked with Qataris will know that they do the minimal work with minimal sense of responsibility. After all, who is going to fire them?

Now the non-Qatari coworker has to do his own job & pick up the slack of the Qatari as well. Oppression.

5) Qataris are Muslims, right? And as Muslims they are suppose to treat other Muslims as their brothers irrespective of race & color, right? Then why is it that I have witnessed Qataris abusively pushing non-Qataris in mosques at the time of Friday prayer? And how many Qataris have I witnessed embrace their non-Qatari Muslim brothers after Eid prayers & wish them a joyous Eid? NONE. Why?

The answer is, intoxication with wealth & power. When those two things are given to a people without those people having to struggle, and acquire in a legal way, then it is natural for them to assume they deserve that wealth & power and that it is their birth right.

Muslim readers who would like to remind me that the land of Qatar belongs to the Qataris & they can do whatever they please, I would like to first remind myself & then them to read in the Holy Quran, surah 42, Ash-Shura, verse 4, "To Him (God) belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: and He is Most High, Most Great."

6) The kafeel/sponsorship system of Qatar is oppresive in its nature and it is the foundation of the entire workforce in Qatar. And I can relate first hand experiences by people who have been abused by the Qataris & have had their business stolen from them by their Qatari sponsors....

You can throw all of my experiences out the window if you are a caucasian with white skin, with a foreign accent and a foreign passport. The oppression & abuse of the Qataris is limited to those they deem below themselves. For example, nationals of India, Philippines, Palestine, Egypt, Pakistan, Jordan, Indonesia, etc.

I will close with a note that no oppression against anyone goes unnoticed, nor unpunished.

Single guy - how friendly are you to them? How friendly are you to other races in your home country? Have you ever gone out of your way to make an Indian, Pakistani or Arab feel welcome in your country. I doubt it - you just get on with your life, mix with your friends, relatives and colleagues, look after your own family and generally 'DO YOUR OWN THING'.

We cannot expect every national in our host country to be alerted to 'yet another new expat has arrived, let's make sure we make him/her feel welcome'. I have never come across one Qatari that wasn't polite and helpful if spoken to. We tend to be wary and apprehensive of them perhaps and this causes the cultural divide.

Look to ourselves first, before blaming others.

I was also quite friendly to my earlier Qatari neighbour who was a policeman. Such a soft spoken person that you will not believe that he is in CID. I used to see his brigadier boss in swimming pool in Doha Club & he was absolutely down to earth.

It is really not fair to judge our host country categorically. Singleguy whoever you are my friend i truly share with your misfortune if you did ever meet an unfriendly Qatari but im sure you wouldnt blame me if i say that you missed your target big time if you judge your presumptions thru a single instance only. Because if this is so this country would not have grow as what they are used to be if this people are what you think they are. Peoples from all over the globe would not have flocked to this desert land to look for greater oppurtunities if and when this locals are as really bad as what you might have them presumed to be. Maybe, just maybe in a case or two you happened to be in a wrong place and in a wrong time with this few kind of local people.

but i remember a nice hadith by our prophet pbuh

"an arab has no supirority over a non arab and white over black or black over white only person who is better in eyes of ALLAH is the one who has takwa"

i think this hadith is in arabic but arabic is the language of qatar but hmmmmmmmmm....hahahah

My experiences with Qatari people have been exceptional. They are kind, understanding, sympathetic and definitely not arrogant. Of course, in all societies there exist those who poorly represent themselves or their nation. Nevertheless, threads such as this are hateful, pathetic and unecessarily create tensions between local and foreign population. On the positive side, it has exposed the general sentiment amongst those contributing that their experiences with Qataris have been friendly.

One must respect the space that they are living in.

Qataris, are very reserved. We as westerns should ourselves look at how we treat the Arabs. Just because you see someone dressed like a Qataris,it doesn't mean that they are...There are many who put on the clothing as a way to hide behind and get respect. I have seen it with my own eyes,as I have Pakistanis living next door to me and they go around the compound uncovered and only cover up when they go out.This should not be the way. However, the Qataris that I have met and that my husband work with are so nice.They are refine,polite and genuine. It's we who need to learn from them as we have very little respect for their culture and are arrogant.I have met many who think that just because we earn good money here,they can put on some airs. This is their country and we should try to understand their culture.Love all and try to look beyond the race,colour or creed of a person.

Well ,I am From Europe and I found only one or two nice qatari women during the past six years .Qatari women treat terribly other women -whom they think is a foreigner and a possible threat who can kidnap their future husbands( i mean qatari men ) .Once a qatari teenager girl beat my back in such a way that I wished to give it back -at once .When I turned to her she was frightened -apparently she had taken me from back to be an Asian maid or so.She just wanted to warn me that the line is moving .At the mandatory health check the Qatari women treated me like a cattle -like a nobody -in such a way -that I burst out crying from the humiliation .

Another time at the supermarket bunch of Qatari women threw away my trolley with my sleeping baby in it -and threw back my goods from the cashier counter telling me "it's my country not yours " I have a qatari friend who keeps telling me that these are not real Qatari people just they got citizenship .I do not know .Elder ladies tend to be much friendlier and kinder to me than younger ones .Strange ,isn't it ?they still remember the time when their husbands and fathers used to work as expat worker somewhere abroad .

folks in every country I've ever lived in or vistied. By and large I find Qatari very friendly and most helpful. Just a few examples are:

The very nice Qatari lady who helped me when my shopping cart lost a wheel and toppled over with everything spilling out - she and her daugher & son helped me pick up my shopping and take it to the car with very little talking involved - unspoken friendliness and kindness!

A wondeful Qatari man who helped me back out of a tight spot after I partially blocked in by a big truck...took a very long time and he stayed there in the hot mid day sun helping me by motioning which way I could turn the wheels and when to stop.

Two nice young Qatari gentleman helped me find my way after I got horribly lost when I started driving here. I was stopped at a gas station looking at the map trying to orientate myself when they offered help..showed me on the map and then had me follow them to the connecting road where I found my bearings.

All this in a few weeks and based on personal experience only, I definitely say Qataris are lovely people.

You're giving the rest of us Tweety's a bad rep with talk like that.

As for me - I just met a very nice young Qatari gentleman the other day. He was newly employed and very excited about starting his new career. His enthusiasm was contagious. Before I knew it - not only was I smiling while I listened to him outline his goals I also thought to myself this kid is going places. And not only that - he did not resemble AT ALL any of the racist descriptions I have read on this website. This kid is smart, outgoing and a real go-getter who, I have no doubt, will work hard for the succes that will come his way.

Wake up people - there are good and bad in every culture and country. Why must these threads always highlight the negative instead of the positive? In the year that I have been in this country I have had way more positive interactions with people of all religions and cultures than negative.

Qataris once they get to know you will give you the shirt off their back. But also some may not know English so are shy to speak. It depends on where you meet them. But things are changing here due to the wealth and the large influx of foreignors I think they are getting a raw deal in employment so its changing them. They make far less than foreignors but the govt. throws them crumbs to make up for the fact the govt. is sooooooooooooo rich. Imagine living on 5000 QR a month most have to have a second job to make a living. When you see a Qatari driving a great car you can bet he still lives at home. It takes many years for them to save and build a house as they are not mortgaged as they are in the rest of the world its a cash society so when they get married they live at home. Most of what people believe the reality is the opposite.

..but my opinion is Qataris ARE friendly and helpful in general. The only time when they are annoying and become unmanageable is when they are driving above 140 km/h in the left lane of the road and want you to give them the way, and start pushing- flashing, honking- monking, and jumping out of their panties in their impatience...

I work in most Qatari environment. All black and white around me.. and all of them are very friendly, girls are very soft and kind, guys are nice and helpful. Also I have an experience of getting help from qataris on the roads (once my battery went flat, and few cars pulled off the road when they saw me parked at the side of the road with the open car hood, and few other times).

Again, the only time when they look rude and crazy is when they are driving behind your car and you feel like they are willing to override you next second if you don’t give them a way.. so all I do is just move to the right lane and then the guy in Land Cruiser calms down right away, and sometimes even waves to me and smiles…

One day while shopping I struggled to find something, I asked a lady and she took me to the right aisle and explained the difference in the products so I knew which one to buy,

another time I was paying for something and didn't have my credit card, they wouldn't accept cash, a lovely Qatari man paid with his card and let me give him the cash.

Just a couple of examples but good ones I think :) x

Qataris are fine - I keep a couple in a cage...

with proper training they don't bite and sit and wag their tails. They eat all their food nicely and they like having their hair brushed.

Whoami and DG - you two have patience.... for crying out loud what sort of question is this?

OK Qataris (to generalise) can be very giggly and very teasing with their humour. They love a laugh. I have a good laugh every day with them.

@singleguy, oh poor you. Get some better friends then.

My closest friends here are from all over, a Pakistani, Australian, and a Brit. I guess I subconsciously treat think of them as women, that's why I'm so nice.\

If you're dining with a Qatari, don't expose the bottoms of your feet to him. Don't eat with your left hand either, since Islamic tradition holds that the left hand is used for wiping after a trip to the toilet. Similarly, don't attempt to shake hands or hand a package with your left hand.

If your Qatari friend insists on buying you something - a meal or a gift - let him! Qataris are extremely hospitable, and typically there are no strings attached.

As for those on the site who are insulting me because of my question or experiences - you don't even know me so who are you to insult me? If you read my original question properly I am not generalising. The problem with this site is it's too easy to insult people whilst not knowing anything about them or of their experiences here.

From what I have seen they are friendly to you if you are a white westerner and/or female. I am not white nor female so I have not experienced any warmth or friendliness from them. Also I think there is blatant racism in Qatar. I recall one incident when I along with two Moroccan guys I know tried to get into a club at a hotel but were refused repeatedly on the basis that it was a 'couples only' night. A few minutes later a few white guys came along bought tickets and walked straight in. No questions asked. What is this all about?

I work with several Qatari guys, and they're very pleasant people. They're horrendously wealthy (well, compared to me!) yet still down-to-earth and good for a laugh.

May I suggest that perhaps, "singleguy" and the rest of the negative tossers, if you have such an issue with every national in a country . . . perhaps it's not down to them? Maybe it's because you are, in fact, a bit of a twat?

You might find it surprising (she said tongue in cheek) that my experience has been that all of the Nationals I have met have different types of personality traits and characters. Who knew - I thought they were all cut from the same mold - I mean afterall they all look alike right? (rolling eyes at my generalization)

Seriously though - there are many Qataris at my place of employment. Of course I have not met all of them but the ones I have met have been very nice and as Abu said, incredibly polite. The individual Qataris that I work closely with are courteous, helpful and a couple have quite the wicked sense of humor just like our own Diamond Girl. )

Maybe, singleguy, the arrogance and unfriendly attitude is a projection of your own behavior.

When I was new here searching for flats, my countrymen gave me suggestions, lots of suggestions - look here, look there, search here, search there etc ... but the moment I asked the Qatari in my office, he sat down with me went through all the arabic news sites online and gave me a good list of all available flats and he was willing to take me around on the weekend ... and asked me to call him incase I find someone who can speak only arabic ...

The best example is this site ... Qatari and ILQ - Amnesia ... they are Qataris ... why are they helping people ???
