Ahmed Al Shukairi achieved his goal and managed to broadcast his program "Khawater" in the list of Ramadan programs to ensure its spread more among the Arab communities. The program succeeded significantly in the years that followed, and in subsequent sections the program tackled a variety of topics aimed at building a model world of patriotism and brotherhood among Muslims. The program was looking for a suitable way to face the corruption that the Arab world suffers so much.

The goal behind all this was to revive the great civilization of the Muslims and restore their lost glory. Ahmed Al-Shukairi's ideas attracted the minds and interest of the Arab public, and succeeded remarkably on the regional and international levels, until the production of the thoughts of 10 in 2014.
