    Damn, I didn't know you moved to Saudi :laugh:

    The last time I went there was for Umrah as a kid and it was horrible, too hot for my liking.

    My question would be.... do the majority of the women you see walking outside
    anywhere always with a mahram or something? :erm:

    ok find me hadith also its because Islam is protecting women.
    Protecting them by allowing men to beat them as Quran 4:34 allows right? Hahaha. Sure.


    Hadith - Sahih Bukari, Vol 7 number 715

    "Narrated 'Ikrima:
    Rifa'a divorced his wife whereupon 'AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. 'Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah's Apostle came, 'Aisha said, "I have not seen any woman suffering AS MUCH AS THE BELIEVING WOMEN. Look! Her skin IS GREENER THAN HER CLOTHES!." When 'AbdurRahman heard that his wife had gone to the Prophet, he came with his two sons from another wife. She said, "By Allah! I have done no wrong to him but he is impotent and is as useless to me as this," holding and showing the fringe of her garment, 'Abdur-Rahman said, "By Allah, O Allah's Apostle! She has told a lie! I am very strong and can satisfy her but she is disobedient and wants to go back to Rifa'a." Allah's Apostle said, to her, "If that is your intention, then know that it is unlawful for you to remarry Rifa'a unless 'Abdur-Rahman has had sexual intercourse with you." Then the Prophet saw two boys with 'Abdur-Rahman and asked (him), "Are these your sons?" On that 'AbdurRahman said, "Yes." The Prophet said, "You claim what you claim (i.e. that he is impotent)? But by Allah, these boys resemble him as a crow resembles a crow,"


    Tough luck darling

    Have fun being beaten and oppressed.
    'the elder' and his entrenched mindset, how cliché.

    I have been living in Qatar for about 7 years now. I go to Saudi for Umrah annually because my parents are very religious.
    How do you travel around, does your dad drive whenever you have to go somewhere?
