Religion permeates practically every aspect of life here in Saudi Arabia. It is not uncommon to see verses from the Quran on business literature, as art hung in homes or as public art on display, or in advertising. Vehicles also frequently are adorned with religious writings too, mainly like this which is called the “shahatha.” This verse and the sword appear on the Saudi Arabian flag and the verse is what is spoken when one becomes a Muslim. It is the declaration of faith which states, “There is no god but God and Mohammad is his messenger.” I featured a similar decal in this previous post.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
