This weekend in Saudi Arabia - where I currently reside - will mark the nation's National Day observances.  The nation

http://www.saudigazette.com.sa/myfiles/Images/2013/09/18/ec03_big.jpg

celebrates their national day on September 23rd, the documented date of the founding of the modern Saudi state. 

 

Having lived here - on expatriate status - for a number of years, and in relative contentment, I thought this time on how, if I were a Saudi national, I would hope I would greet my country's National Day and the pride it would afford me. 

 

First - as with all national observances - I would hope to reflect on the significance of my nation's flag - the primary symbol of the nation.  In the case of Saudi Arabia, the national flag carries specifically the Islamic creed, which means "There is none worthy of worship but Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah."  This is the creed of faith of the over one billion Muslims around the world. 

 

So, the historical foundation of the modern Saudi state had sprung from the  foundation of Islamic life itself, maintaining the connection with the completion of the Islamic message more than 1400 years ago by the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, starting in Makkah and completing in Madinah - both cities of which are now located within Saudi Arabia. And from this the message of Islam spread around the world, and Islamic contributions to science, art and technology are well documented.

 

So, as a Saudi national, I would hope that I would take a moment during my national day to reflect on the true meaning of that statement on my nation's flag.  And as a Muslim, I would hope to make sure that I demonstrated the best in Muslim behavior and manners, not only to my Saudi compatriots, but also all other Muslims residing in my country, and more over even non-Muslims in Saudi Arabia. This measure from me would help to exhibit the true nature of manners and behavior embodied in the message of Islam and also help to represent the best behavior of my nation.  This would be a true demonstration of the pride in my nation and the legacy of my faith.

But then again, I’m not a Saudi national, so I wish my Saudi brothers and sisters congratulations on the observation of their national day with full hopes for success through Allah’s grace in all areas for mutual benefit.
