Amayreh writes: Juma Hammad in his memoirs.. The life of a science student | Book of Ammon

A few days ago, I received a valuable gift from my dear friend, Dr. Hassan Juma Hammad, which is a copy of the book of his father, our great teacher, Hajj Juma Hammad Jahama: (The life of a student of science… an autobiography 1921-1995 AD).

The life of Mr. Jumaa Hammad, may God have mercy on him, was full of work, giving, and distinction in the fields of journalism, literature, culture, and political work.

In his introduction to the book, Dr. Hassan Hammad indicates that his father began writing these notes at the beginning of 1989 AD, and they cover all stages of his rich and fertile life. Dr. Hassan took over the task of verifying and arranging the notes, as well as providing them with appropriate pictures.

And when we mention the great Professor Jumaa Hammad, and I worked with him and the late Professor Mahmoud Al-Kayed as editor-in-chief and then editor-in-chief in the dear (Al-Rai) from (1979 to 1991), we proudly recall his exploits, merits, journalistic efforts and abilities, which are distinguished in the field of management and his great interest in distribution. Distribution and advertising were considered the most important factors for the success of the newspaper, along with the quality of writing and editing news, choosing the attractive headline without exaggeration, and credibility and accuracy. And let’s not forget that he used to weave strong relationships in his direct paternal style, away from any affectation. When we wanted to refer to him or talk to him, we used to address him with the expression “uncle Hajj,” a word that our tongues used to use with much affection and respect.

The book is full of documented information and full of memories. It reflects the extended life that the great writer and journalist lived with all its burdens, worries, sorrows and joys on the level of the individual, the country and the nation. He had an opinion, a role, a position and a cause.

In the book, there are many topics and issues that deserve mention about the profession of journalism and its troubles and hardships, and its emphasis on freedom of the press and linking it to responsibility and defense of public, professional and trade union freedoms, but this haste cannot be fulfilled. It is necessary to return to the book, which formulated its chapters in its own style that is characterized by smoothness, grace and depth
May God have mercy on our great teacher and reward him with the best reward.
