Lord Shiva in Arabia

A time before Islam

This is about the history of the southern Arabian kingdom of Shiva and what Supreme Lord Shiva means. Subhan Allah wa bihamdihi = Om Namah Shivay.

Shaivism was the most important influence in ancient Arabia before Islam along with pre islamic Babylonian Deities. Arabs when they converted to Islam took the Namaz ritual from Persians [Arabs called it Salat] and also Sajda [will elaborate on that shorlty ] & Prayer of evening, Isha is always invoking Lord Shiva also known as Isha. Those who do not understand live in ignorance but they are praising the Supreme force of creativity.

Those who destroy or vandalize any Shiva temple or relic in any form, have known to be

Saudi Arabia

A country to avoid

Saudi Arabia is a nation of contrasts, the landscape is mostly desert with coastlines on the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. For thousands of years the Saudis have been humble desert dwellers, but because trade routes crossed through their region, they were able to make modest profits through trade or criminality.

Prior to the arrival and spread of Islam in the seventh century, the Saudis followed Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism). But as a people with nothing in a material sense, the Saudis made Islam their own and perhaps after years of suffering the contempt of their regional neighbours, Islam gave them the power to extract their revenge, not only on their neighbours but the

Slavery in Arab Countries

About half of the Saudi workforce are migrant workers

If you pay attention to the news media, you will often come across stories relating to the abuse and mistreatment of migrant workers in Islamic countries. In Saudi Arabia for instance, almost one half of the entire workforce is made up of foreign labourers and some them are treated worse than slaves.

Most often the company organising workers on behalf of individuals or companies will retain the individual’s passport and documents which means that even in the country in which they work, they have no freedom.

Most of the men that go into these countries work in construction. They come to Saudi because there is not the work in their

Dubai

More than just an airport

The Independent

Dubai is just another tiny oil-rich kingdom on the Gulf of Arabia. While it remains an important regional airport, like its neighbours it is doing all it can to turn itself into an international tourist destination.

You’ll find all the usual camel safaris, scuba diving, nice beaches for Western tourists only and exquisite hospitality. But being a Muslim country there is no freedom for the people, especially the foreign workers who often suffer horribly as they do in other countries within the region.

However for the naive Western tourist, especially if she is remotely attractive, she will be a target for rape. The Arabs like pretty girls from

Qatar

More an oil and gas corporation than a country

Officially Qatar is a sovereign country which essentially consists of the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula and it’s capital is Doha. It has a land border is with Saudi Arabia to the south, but the rest of its territory is surrounded by the Persian Gulf. A strait in the Persian Gulf separates Qatar from the nearby island of Bahrain, as well as sharing sea borders with the United Arab Emirates and Iran.

This tiny country is notorious for supporting Al Qaeda-inspired terrorists in war-scarred Syria and tarnished its already infamous reputation by causing an ignominious scandal involving a female member of the Qatari royal
