It’s Saudi Arabia’s Birthday!

Saudi Arabia was unified and pronounced a kingdom in 1932 so that makes it 78 years old. We’re getting older and wiser. This piece from Reuters covers how Saudi national day has only been recently celebrated because in the past some of our more prominent Shiekhs considered patriotism an unIslamic concept.  Fortunately now it’s deemed halal.

I’m going to play this all day tomorrow or at least until the kids scream for mercy. It’s my favorite song about Saudi even though it’s not the official anthem. The meaning is so majestic and passionate, it never fails to lift my spirit.

Google is also celebrating Saudi National Day with a doodle. Thank you Google!
