Important Notice

It is not my intention to denigrate Saudi Arabia or its people. It’s like everywhere else, there is good and there is bad. I would rather focus on the unusual and the humourous. Offence is not intended.

“The country is not perfect. The media cannot be trusted, mistreatment of religious minorities is common and there are some that live in fear.” You can decide for yourself whether that statement is about Saudi Arabia, the UK, or any country for that matter.

To quote the Joker, “Why can’t we all just get along?”

That is all I will say about either subject.

It will be ready for you tomorrow, Insha’allah.
Insha’allah. Don’t believe anyone who tells you that this means “God Willing”. It actually means “If I Can Be Arsed”. Think about it. Why would God be willing to do anything for an infidel atheist like me? If it was really “God Willing” then nothing would ever get done for me in Saudi. Hmm… on second thoughts….

I'm Calling B.S. on that one!!! Insha Allah means that I have no control of the simplest and mundane portions of my life. Every single motion and action has already been pre-ordained by Allah. This gives me a perfect excuse if I just "happen" to forget we had a meeting at 3 o'clock on Tuesday!!!

Aww, yes there are people who say "insha'Allah" whilst knowing they do not or will not do a particular thing, however, generally, Muslims say insha'Allah because as "anonymous" stated, every single motion and action has already been pre-ordained by Allah, for Muslims and non-Muslims alike, for rains, disasters, animals,basically all of the creation. There is a saying of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him that "if the whole mankind gathered to do some good for you, they would not be able to do so unless Allah willed it for you, and if the whole mankind gathered to do you some harm, they would not be able to do so unless Allah willed it for you". Please do not take it as something that does not apply to you because you are not a Muslim, you are the creation of Allah and you as the rest of us are under His Will. You are just to funny, I am laughing out loud here honestly, as I keep reading your posts! INSHA'ALLAH I will read some more! LOL!

The replica watch is one of their newest watches and epitomizes its accuracy in timekeeping. It is a beautiful automatic chronograph stainless steel watch. Automatic means that it is not a quartz, but winds by your hand movement or by a special winder that can be purchased. Swiss watchmaking at its finest is represented by the Breitling name.
