‘’Our beautiful valley is sacred at times and unholy at other times. It is the land of religions, spirituality, rituals, places of worship, and social cohesion that is sometimes a cause of human happiness and sometimes a cause of their unhappiness, to the extent that this life allows them with all its rituals, customs, and traditions of space of freedom and freedom. The world of this valley is a world that combines heaven and earth, and its intellectual heritage mixes between religion, superstition, and fertile imagination, mediating a social life in which collective thought is active and linking the concepts of family and tribe, and it is embodied in popular celebrations such as the zar, birthdays, Sufi rituals, and others… In such a life, a dialectic arises a strong one in which the various parties tug on the ropes from every direction, and this is usually at the expense of the weaker and smaller parties that obey and bow under the weight of these social, ideological and heritage burdens and all the customs and traditions built on them; It makes us happy as much as it exhausts us, We are faced with a global dialectic and a philosophical contradiction that is seen in everything around us. And is there any valley more capable of displaying this dialectic and contradiction than our own, full of mysteries and secrets?” -Suzan Saad
