where in Saudi Arabia are you?c*curiousity strikes* as i grew up in saudi...alhamdulillah!

Sadly, yeah Saudi is really hard to get into...but it would be AMAZING if Al MAghrib could be more at a global scale! subhaanAllah

I was wondering what to think of when your location said, "Saudi Arabia". After seeing Muhammad's post about AlMaghrib coverage in ArabNews, it all makes sense now, maa shaa Allaah. It's a pleasure to have you joining us.

Welcome to the almaghrib family.

It sounds like alMaghrib is so much fun masha'Allah. I came here via arabnews (http://arabnews%3c/a%3E%20.%3C/i%3E) . The question is, when will it start here in my place? :( Or other middle east countries? I'll be moving to dubai in a couple of months insha'Allah. Perhaps UAE is more easy a country to enter. Saudi rules are tough!!
Masha Allah, from Saudi to Dubai? Sounds like an amazing trip to me. I was born and raised in Dubai, haven't been there since 95, but i heard it changed so much... i can't wait to go and pay it a visit or even move there... I don't know about the possibility of AlMaghrib coming there, if that happened my move would be super easy..!! I was told about a university in Ajman that was started by Bilal Phillips, you know anything about it? Don't know how similar it is to AlMaghrib, but i thought the classes they offer are interesting. I can't remember the name of it, but it is a branch of a University in either Wyoming or Montana, one of those weird states... I'll try to find the link insha Allah.

My place is in Sharjah, and is better than dubai any day.Maa shaa Allaah...my ex-ex-roommate was an Indian brother (he's registered somewhere on these forums, I think, but is not forums person) also grew up there, and I think he's there now. One of the best brothers I know, maa shaa Allaah, and I have a fond opinion of Ashshaariqah based on what he told me. And...well...just don't ask me what he said about the other Emirates.

Masha Allah, that is it... I had completely forgot the name of it... I know what you mean by Dubai changing so much, i think the only thing that would turn me off is the traffic but other than that i would love to live in Dubai... i kinda like busy places.. as for the night clubs and stuff, then may Allah guide them, i will never forget the sound of 5 different masaajid making athaan pricesly 5 seconds apart.. Fitnah is every where, the fact that it is a Muslim country to me out weighs anything and everything... Shariqah, i was actually born in Shariqah but grew up in Dubai... All i remember is Shaari3 al Wa7da..

Salam, I live in the UAE as well. Dubai is a hectic place...it's just nice to go there once in a while. I live a 1 and a half hours drive from there. It would be awesome if AlMaghrib came here.

i don't know if it counts but i went to dubai da summer of 2004...and my mother and i had family friends in sharja and cujman as well...but sharjah and cujman seemed soo lonely and dead..compared to dubai..

im a city person...so i fell inlove with dubai*minus the weather**...
it would truly be awesome if they had an almaghrib class there..im sure alot of people would benefit..however i think in most islamic countries..dere not stuck on holding on to their religion..maybe they take it for granted cuz its all around them..allahu aclam..

hu knows..
