If you are at the lock screen where you enter your pattern, you can recover it by going to the "forgot password". If you do not have this option available then your only option is to Hard Reset the device. First power off the device, the hold the power+volume down buttons and wait for device to boot up. Use the volume keys to navigate the menu to find Factory Reset, then use the power key to select it.

I Cannot use my L-07C here in Qatar what should I do?

There's no signal anywhere I go.

This is more likely because your device is locked to a particular network. It is not compatible with the network within Qatar. You can have it unlocked by going to a service center or sometimes, certain service providers will provide this service for free especially if they really want you to subscribe to their services.
