King Faisal Prize
King Faisal Charity Foundation launched the King Faisal Prize, which was awarded for the first time in the year 1399 AH / 1979 AD to reward individuals and institutions for their unique achievements. The award aims to serve Muslims in their present and future and urge them to participate in all fields of civilization.
The year 1396 AH / 1976 AD was the year in which the children of King Faisal bin Abdul Aziz established the King Faisal Charitable Foundation as a memorial to their father and a contribution to constructive work. This institution has come to be a charitable organization with a global perspective. That is why the appreciation of workers for serving Islam and rewarding scholars was at the forefront of its priorities. In the month of Shaaban from 1397 AH / 1977 AD, His Royal Highness Prince Abdullah Al-Faisal announced that the Foundation’s Board of Trustees decided to establish an international award in the name of King Faisal and that its first prizes would be awarded in 1399 AH / 1979 AD.
