Here I'm going to provide some Saudi customs:

1- Relations Between the Sexes

  • Because of the strict segregation of the sexes, there is very little communication between men and women in public.
  • Men and women do not shake hands.
  • Eye contact should be avoided with anyone of the opposite sex.
  • A Western man meeting a Saudi man in the street, accompanied by his wife, should not expect to be introduced to the wife. Many Saudi men, meeting a Western couple, will not acknowledge the presence of the wife.
  • Westerners, male or female, should not greet members of the opposite sex unless they have been introduced, and know that the Saudi has liberal opinions.
  • Nor should they expect their presence to be acknowledged by someone of the opposite sex. This is not rudeness, just the local custom.
  • It is one thing being introduced in private, in the company of friends or spouse, and another walking up to someone in the street.
  • Any deviation from the accepted norms could be interpreted as desire to start a relationship, whether this is the intention or not.
hi fares irealy like what u said about saudi arabia and saudies
we should but things right there r alot of wrong ideas about us

  • will this isnt compleetly true it is ok in my family and alot of other peaople

    we r not a very strict contry but we have religous values and alot of people in saudi arabia confuse riligon with coustoms

    Hello all.

    I am an American and I lived in Saudi Arabia for about a year near a place called AL Jabail on the coast.

    My opinion is this. I feel that Saudi Arabia is one of the most wealthy countries in the middle east. I feel that it is hot, very very hot.

    I would say this is a wonderful contry to live in the middle east if you were a sunni muslim, However if you are not a sunni muslim this place will probably not be that great for you.

    I am a christian and from the United States. Because I believe in Freedom of religion and Freedom of speech, I hated every moment I was in Saudi Arabia.
    Super-DaveBecause I believe in Freedom of religion and Freedom of speech, I hated every moment I was in Saudi Arabia.
    i agree with you but the problem is peaople in saudi arabia mix riligion with tridition

    all muslims belive in all of thses 2 religions christianity , jewism

    i mean all countries respect religions if i was in amarica i can pray and preform my religion without any problems

    and about freedom of speach ....i cant say any thingEmotion: thinking

    and about being wealthy country......will we have a very high rate of poverty and most of peaople dont know that

    but after all saudi arabia is wonderful country its safe and most of peaople are very nice

    the thing irealy like about saudi arabia is the college education is free and they give u about 300 dolars every month just for studying

    and they send thousend of students to study abroad and they took care of every thing

    cool isnt it???
    Noura

    When I was in Saudi Arabia the only poor people I saw were the Bedouins. If I remember correctly the Bedouins are not even real citizens of Saudi Arabia.

    You say that all contries respect religion. This is not true. Can you name any Christian Churches in Saudi Arabia?

    I can take you through my city and show you atleast 2 mosques.

    If I came to visit you and your family and I tried talking to your family about the Bible and about God and christianity, could not the police have me arrested?

    In Saudi Arabia I could and probably would be arrested for practicing my religion. However in my country not only can you practice your religion but in fact even Christians will fiercely protect muslims right to believe and practice their religion. We might not agree about religion and the Truth about God, But we will fight to protect anyones right to believe and practice their religion.

    There are several great problems between Christianity and Islam. I do not know if they can ever be resolved. However I do believe that if something is not done soon, a great war between civilizations could occur. Possibly millions could die.

    dave i dont think you have read all of my replay

    i said its true that in saudi arabia they dont belive in freedom of religon

    i know you live in al jabeel but its small city in saudi arabia you wouldnt know alot of difrrent opinions
    Super-DaveYou say that all countries respect religion. This is not true. Can you name any Christian Churches in Saudi Arabia?
    imean im muslim suni and i fallow prophit mohamad and he told us to respect the religons

    and if you know islam you would have known that beliving in religions and the holly books "bible and hebrew bible

    is one of islam six pillers
    Super-DaveIf I came to visit you and your family and I tried talking to your family about the Bible and about God and christianity, could not the police have me arrested?
    oh my frind i think you are exagerating

    and by the way i know alot about christianty and ihave a lot of christian frinds and there are no proplems ...... islam and christianity are some what similars

    i am sorry my english is not good but ithink the word "is the 9 wills" which r dont kill dont steal dont drink .....etc are the same in islam

    there are only two diffrents between us we belive that there is only one god and you belive in jesus as god "we also belive in jesus as we belive in prophit mohamad"

    the second is we only have one holy book and you have so many

    thanks for the replay and i hope you come and visit us in riyadh if you want toEmotion: smile
