    NATIONAL SAUDI DAY COMPITITION

    Saudi Arabia is not only the homeland of the Arab peoples—it is thought that the first Arabs originated on the Arabian Peninsula—but also the homeland of Islam, the world’s second-largest religion.

    On 23 rd September King AbdulAziz Al-Saud unified the couimrana 3ntry hence Saudi Arabia celebrates the national day on 23 rd September.

     

    Saudi Arabia occupies most of the Arabian Peninsula, with the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba to the west and the Persian Gulf to the east. Neighboring countries are Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, the Sultanate of Oman, Yemen, and Bahrain, connected to the Saudi mainland by a causeway. Saudi Arabia contains the world’s largest continuous sand desert, the Rub Al-Khali, or Empty Quarter. Its oil region lies primarily in the eastern province along the Persian Gulf. The Saudi government estimates the total area as 2,217,949 square kilometers, while other reputable estimates vary between 2,149,690 and 2,240,000 sq. kilometers

    Saudi Arabia the great country, it’s a dream place of every Muslim whether he or she is from any part of the world. I being Indian always thought democracy is one of the best way of managing things but after visiting Saudi Arabia and living here I realized how effective the kingdom rules are, I am very much inspired by the government systems of Saudi Arabia whether it is related to judicial laws, traffic or cleanliness of kingdom, Saudi Arabia is a wonderful place where a person can concentrate about this life and there after life.

    One can enjoy the excellent shopping malls and amazing beaches of KSA. The most important attraction is the two holy places Mecca and Medina, Amazed about the facility provided by the KSA government in these places and in rest of the country. Alhamdulillah I got an Opportunity to perform hajj with ease just because of the excellent management by the government provided to accommodate pilgrims and facility given to them.

     

    One more interesting aspect of Saudi Arabia is the food, culture and heritage, The Saudi Arabian cuisine include wheat, rice, lamb, chicken, yogurt, potatoes , dates. Shawarma  Falafel etc . The two religious festivals are celebrated in much the same way. Eid al Fitr is an event filled with numerous foods, which differ from family to family, but always includes dates and generally also consists of various meats or fish, grains, and vegetables. This celebration occurs immediately after Ramadan, a religious holiday that requires fasting for 30 days.

    The second major food celebration is Eid al Adha, which is only celebrated after a pilgrim returns from haj, the mandatory journey for every able Muslim to go to Mecca. Again, this festival contains a large number of rice and meat dishes, including many of those served during Eid al Fitr.

    Over all it’s an amazing gifted country by al mighty and I enjoy living here. Happy Saudi day and happy Eid al Adha.

    The blessed natives of Saudi Arabia   leads a life of selfless devotion to the Almighty.  They lead a very pious life by observing the obligatory prayers to be performed five times a day included in the five pillars of Islam.  For them, Islam isn’t just a religion but a way of life that governs and guides their path through this world and the next. They   find the Holy Qur’an  as the book of  books and literature of literature which guides them  in this path of life.

    Saudi Arabia is the country of  topographic diversity .The country includes   deserts like An Nafud,the  highest mountain peak  Jabal Sawda,  plateaus Hisma,  valleys  like Wadi Al-Rummah and  Harrat Al-Harrah  forest areas , beautiful coastal land areas  like Yanbu  and  much more. The diverse geography adds to the diverse  flora , fauna as well as the diverse climatic conditions  throughout the country.

    The mouth watering dishes of the country are very famous in all most all part of the world. The food items are very traditional. Meals include thick soups, stuffed vegetables, bean salads or  tabbouleh, hummus, rice, and the flat bread that is eaten with all meals. Dates, raisins, and nuts are served as appetizers or snacks, and sweet desserts finish off the meal in celebrations.

    The natives are very famous for their hospitality and humanity.  From a source that runs deep into the traditions and history, the warmth and friendliness of the Saudi   people is what powers the tourism, more than anything else in the country .The kind and hospitable natives embraced citizens of many countries  irrespective of cast and creed ,provided them life and  lustre.

    The peaceful as well as comfortable life in the country is the remarkable achievement of Saudi Arabia. The royal kingdom assures safety and security not only to the citizens, but to the expatriate community also with the impeccable laws where no room is for inequality or injustice. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia always takes strong decisions and confirms its rejection and denouncement of terrorism. It is vivid from the kingdom’s contribution and cooperation in the international efforts against terrorism and the announcement of the new counter terrorism law. It has effectively participated in regional and international meetings to discuss the issue of combating terrorism, and criminalizing terrorist acts. The steps taken by the country in this account is commendable.

    On the great national day of the kingdom which coincides this year with the Holy Days of the Eid al-Adha  the memorial of the great submission to the Almighty, with a heart full thanks I remember the words “happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed, it is the great spiritual experience of living every minute with love, gra
    ce and gratitude in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia”. On this auspicious occasion, I pray to Almighty that Saudi Arabia may progress by leaps and bounds in every walk of life to the top of the world.

    “I’m not a Saudi born”

    illustration-of-balloons-saudi-arabia-flag-for-national-day_216931468

    I am an expatriate

    Who has come from srilanka

    Lives in the country of holy Makkah

     

    Where the deserts spread as far as the eye can see.. 

    The sun shines ever so bright and strong.. 
    In the land of the golden sun, in which I belong

     

    The beauty of date trees stands majestically

    It cannot be replace by anything perfectly

     

    The people here with a great hospitality
    globally welcomed by other nationalities.

    Less evil; what I saw

    When they draw the Sharia-Law

     

    There, the country was in religious extremism

    Now I entered in the boundary of Islamic pietism

     

    Stepped on the dry land with honest

    Effect, my dress got modest.

     

    My eyes which used to capture the green land

    Now go across the desert sand

     

    My kid who flew in the rainfall like a bumble bee

    Joys now making sand castle near the Yanbu sea
     Keeps me away from the blood relations

    Anyway, comfort with annual vacations.

    I’m not a Saudi born

     nevertheless I feel this is my own
