Our Apologies

As salaamu alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

This blog was set up so that people who wanted information about living in Madinah and what to expect upon arrival here. It was never intended as a job finding service, a database for salaries, or a resource for government regulations and requirements to set up businesses. Neither is it intended as a resouce for finding spouses in or out of Saudi Arabia.

As Shariyf works at Taibah University and has many friends in the Jami'at ul Islamiyyah, he has provided information about them when asked, to the best of his ability. However, he doesn't have any knowledge or information on other types of jobs and cannot get people jobs in Taibah University.

We will try to provide more details on life here and various developments, but please don't send us questions or requests for assistance in getting employment, starting up a business here, or to find you a wife or husband, as we cannot help you. Please accept our apologies for our shortcomings and we pray that you will all benefit in some way from this humble effort on our part to fill an information gap.

Barak Allahu feekum.


  1. Asalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah

    There is a tremendous demand for Muslims from all over the world to have desire to live in Madinah. My wife gets questions from Muslim women visiting masjid Nabawi to take them in as servants...however as a expatriates ourselves we can not take any illegal visitor and jeopardize our own status.

    Job opportunities are very few here. Only folks with specialized training and experiences have some chance.

  2. Assalamu'alaikum.

    I find your blog very informative and very helpful. I just returned from umrah last week and reading your blog makes me really happy because it reminds me of my short stay there (10 days in Madinah and Makkah).

    Will you please write about buying your own car and maintaining it? I know women aren't allowed to drive; but I think it's an important information for families who are moving there. I loved the place so much I feel like moving there, to be honest.


When commenting, fitnah is to be avoided at all costs, as the angels abandon those who argue and dispute."Who believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him speak good or remain silent." Barak Allahu feekum!
