    i heard they treat all non saudi ppl bad
    If your born in the UK and your educated they respect u more than those who are born in Pakistan who cant speak English and are not educated.

    I am going to Saudi after 2 days. I was so excited
    but after watching the execution video, am having second thoughts
    I mean how can they do that to someone it's just cruel
    I HATE SAUDIARABIA
    Unless you're planning on raping someone you needn't worry about the execution video

    What if you are a Shia or Ahamdi Pakistani born and raised in the UK ?
    I doubt they respect you.

    Is Arabic that hard then. I heard most westerners struggle with their writing. I have also heard it is extremely easy for Pakistanis to learn Arabic
    pakistanis use similar alphabet so it can be transferable (think all west european languages being different but all have the same basic alphabet)

    AMA Its really hot here it was 37 degrees today. Im staying in Jeddah.

    Here are some answers to questions al probs get asked:

    How long have i been here?
    Since November 26th.

    When will i be back?
    Coming back to the UK at the end of June.

    Why did i move here?
    My dad got a teaching job here and brought us as he thought it would be a good experience.

    Do i agree with the Islamic and political views here?
    I don't really have a clue about the political stuff goes on here. As for the Islamic laws the sharia law is only really practised in Makkah, Madinah and Riyadh. other places arnt really strict and are more conservative. i.e women don't have to cover their hair and music is still played and stuff.

    Why did your dad choose Saudi over other more liberal Arab states like Qatar and the UAE? Just curious.

    Where did you live in the UK before you went to Saudi? Do you know any other families who have also gone out there?

    My mum works in Dubai and I'll be visiting for 2 weeks in May (YAY!). I assume you must have been to the UAE too as you live so close - how do you think your experience of living in a more relaxed city in Saudi compares to somewhere like Dubai for example?

    Are you still allowed to watch Bollywood movies in Saudi? At home or in the cinema? I know they're popular in all the other Arab countries but Saudi seems like a different ballgame.

    Do you get weird looks from people if you go out in public without a hijab/niqaab? Are women generally safe in Saudi?

    Also, how are you using the internet from Saudi?

    Spoiler:

    JK, it's not North Korea. Lol

    oh im so sorry i didnt see your post

    he chose saudi to be closer to Makkah aslo the job role he was offered here was a good one.

    I lived in rochdale, no i dont have family here, half my family are hindu so they wouldnt come here and the rest are living in the UK

    id say jeddah is more islamic than dubai as dubai is mainly for tourists.

    there are cinemas here though av never been to one or seen one. they have a bollywood channel here sometimes i watch a movie off their,

    i wear a hijab still but not a niqab. no one bats an eyelid tbh

    There are no Jews living in Saudi Arabia (as citizens, at least).
    They recently changed the law a year or two ago


    Jews are allowed in, so long as they are not members of the global Zionasty conspiracy i.e. Israeli citizens

    Haha no worries. Thanks for your answers.

    Do you enjoy the heat? I love it and when I'm in the UAE I insist on going out during the day, every day. My mum is the same but most people we know don't feel the same way about the heat, haha.

    What are you studying with Open University?

    Are your family planning to come back to the UK or stay in Saudi long-term? Your dad is a teacher so I'm sure he could travel to whichever country he wants!

    Have you made friends in Saudi? Do you go to things with people, play sports, eat out etc?

    Last but not least - do you miss the UK? If so, what do you miss most?
