Some cultural fact about the Arabian society

The basic and the most important thing in the Arabian society is the family. According to the religion, everything depends on the quality of the family. The Arabian males do their best to keep the family on the right tracks. There is a wrong notion, that the women are deprived in the Arab society. The reality is not that, they offered the fullest contribution to their society with the males. As the religion takes the first place in the Arabian society, the culture and the tradition totally depend on the religion. The food that they consume is considered as the Halaal food, which means, the food, which is prepared according to the codes of the religion. They eat only the flesh of the following animals chicken, goat and cows in the form of chicken, mutton, beef and those also should be slaughtered in the perfect manner.
The Islam is considered as one of the toughest religion in the world. They are in the belief that there is not a god but Allah is the messenger of the god. They have created very attractive mosques to observe their religion and they take extra care to separate the genders even in the process of religious practices. The practice of the religion is a must for the males and they should reach the nearest mosque for that purpose.  Sometimes the women are provided with a separate place for their prayers. They have stronger rules and regulations regarding the marriages, In this culture arranged marriages are welcome and there should be the consent of the both sides of the marriage.  The freedom is there in the religion. The marriage is considered as a duty of the god and divorce and such kind of things are totally restricted, so the Arabian woman can enjoy a long lasting wedded life.

The distribution of laptop education in the Arab countries

The modern trends of the primary education have benefitted only to the students in the urban areas and the suburban areas of the Arab countries, the primary level students, who are in the less benefited areas are not able to enjoy these facilities yet. Sometimes it may take decades to reach the technology to those students of the rural Arab world.
The western countries have become one of the traditional fears of those in the Arab countries, so they try to enhance their skills and talents in order to face the challenges in the future. The advanced education that is given to the students will be a very beneficial in the long run. The introduction of the laptops to the primary education system has changed the system of education a lot towards the positive side.

Dubai online and communication requirements

Even the web pages are toughly censored by the authority. There is not any chance to enjoy some social media networks, as they are blocked by the same party due to the religious and cultural needs of the society. The social media has been blocked and it is not easy to find any uncensored part.

There are a considerable number of programmers, and they supply heater service, in order to improve the business and also to help the clients in related requirements.

The situation in the rural areas of the Middle East

The situation in the rural areas of certain Arab countries differs from the trend in the urban areas, but it only can not affect the total problem. Gradually those areas are also reaping the benefits of the development m and sometimes they prefer to work in suburban and urban areas, as a result of that they also tend to get the help of the birth control procedures.
 As the situation is same in the most of the developed countries of the region, so they want to increase the fertility rate.  The story is somewhat different in the low income countries. They have poor literacy as well as economical stand, as a result of that they are still under the iron shoes of the religion. In such areas people are not interested in population control. e some people even think that it is a sin or a crime against the god.

The Iranian expiring in the population control

 The Iranian government is one of the countries in the world, which thoroughly oppose the concepts of the western countries, but it has adopted its own policy to control the population in the country with the blessings of their spiritual leader. The Iranian health ministry was put forward a birth control policy in order to face the expected population explosion in the future. According to that policy only 2 children were able to have for the couples and it was a policy which has empowered about 2 decades.   The government has employed various types of birth controlling techniques and they also started state owned factory to manufacture condoms. The result was successful, but the authority has understood that they have become one of the nations, which has faced its extinction.
 The government completely stopped the program fearing the great risk of loosing human force in the future. As they are in need many people to face the possible threat of the western countries the government completely gave up the project.
  
Although the government wants to stop the decreasing rate of population growth, many critics say that it is not going to work. The modern Iranian society has become a competitive place with many women working outside and most of the families have to face economic issues. So the young people do not think about having many babies, as the government is expecting.

Concept of modern education in the kingdom

The traditional ideas of the Arab society have been fading gradually, and the golden rays of the development of the information technology are covering the Arabian society slowly but in a steady face. The educated parents are trying to provide a better education for their sons and daughters. The introduction if the laptop in the primary and the secondary level of the schools has become one of the greatest steps of the reforms of the education system in the most parts of the Arab world.
The standardization and quality of the education is far behind, when compared with the same level students in the western society. But it is a very good trend, when we pay our concern about the restrictions and taboos of the Arab countries. The students' attitudes have been changed to a great extent, as the computer based education has become popular among the students.  The students are taking part in various activities, that can be obtained online and the assignments, which are proposed by their teachers.


Quality of Family Planning Programs in Middle East

Though some people say that the Arab governments do not concern about the growth of the population, it is not the reality. Many Arabian governments have employed several types of population planning project in their respective countries. The project is carried out in the restricted manner and the details were not exposed to the outside, especially in the western countries.
The governments such as Iranian, Syrian and some other prominent countries have put forward several proposals to control the population and most of them were fruitful. The educated and employed Arab people, who lived in the towns and the other developed areas, were able to follow the suit, but it was not so successful in the most part of the rural area of the Arab countries. The religious led society is not easy to be turned towards the control of the population in those areas.


How to get Visa to Visit Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia is one of the most difficult places in the world to visit. Anyone can visit Saudi Arabia but Jews are not granted visas to the Kingdom. The Saudi authorities have started tentatively to issue tourist visas, but only for those willing to travel as part of a group (minimum four people) organized by a recognized tour company (including dive companies) for the last six years. You can find the list of approved international and local Saudi tour companies who can arrange the visas online, issued under the sponsorship of Saudi (under its ‘Discover Saudi Arabia’ program). To issue a tourist visa it takes 14 days from the date of request. Also note that the validity of your passports must be for a minimum of six months, and women must be accompanied by their husband or brother (who must also arrive and leave Saudi Arabia at the same time) if they are under 30 years old. Men and women are only allowed to travel together (and granted a visa to do so) if they are (a) married (with an official marriage license) or (b) form part of a group. An unmarried couple is not permitted to travel alone together in Saudi Arabia (and doing so runs the risk of apprehension). Regarding the tourist visa, two couples can only travel together if they have come as ‘individuals in a group’. Any local tour company who has an excellent reputation locally is Sadd Al-Samallaghi Est based in Jeddah can offer you advice and guide you.
