Seeing the Beauty of Life Public in the Country of Wahabi (State which apply Islamic law), this paper is a lesson for you yourselves were counter the religious proselytizing of (da'wah) syeich Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab rahimahullah.

1.In The Education
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia split between school men and women since the level (elementary school). Such that children are familiar with Islamic manners in dealing with the opposite gender. Schoolgirl, since elementary school is not allowed to wear short skirts. Student, from grade 1 to 3 elementary school was given leeway by the school and family for not wearing a veil. But when it came 4th grade and has a great look and could lead to the temptation then is already accustomed to wear a veil when to school, although the origin is not mandatory until he of legal age. In contrast, if Schoolgirl has entered junior high school, he was obliged to wear the niqab when school. Schoolgirl taught by women teachers , while the students are taught by male teachers. Students from kindergarten and elementary school already accustomed chant on syariah morning when beginning to learn

School curriculum in Saudi Arabia (wahabi state) is also filled with Islamic nuance. Memorizing the Qur'an is a fixed charge of since kindergarten through college. Children who pass the minimum elementary school has memorized two chapters of the back (chapters 29 and 30 chapters).

Religious studies is separated from memorizing the Qur'an. Children since kindergarten has taught three main runway, namely: to know Allah ta'ala, to know the Prophet Muhamad sallallaahu alaihi wasallam, recognize religion, three questions we asked about it later.

Other lessons, such as science, social studies, mathematics and other material often associated with religion. For example, how to know Allah ta'ala by looking at the power in the universe, which indicates that these sciences are not opposed to religion. In saudi contained elementary school school has priority the Qur'an other than elementary school. Applying hours memorizing more. And elementary school as it became seizure many people. Each year, elementary school students have received scholarships from the kingdom (PORTRAIT OF wahabi state).
In Saudi Arabia between male patients and female is separated. Likewise, male physicians for male and female doctors for women except in some emergencies, or limitations of medical personnel. Often encountered at the moment waiting for the patient, the doctors in their practice rooms reading the Koran. They are filled with murattal (sound alquran reading) computer. Everything was to take advantage of that time is not wasted.

prophet muhammad shallahu alahi wassalam say in his hadits:
نِعْمَتَانِ مَغْبُوْنٌ فِیْھِمَا كَثِیْرٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ الصِّحَّةُ وَالْفَرَاغُ
two favors the man many fall asleep in it, namely health and free time.[HR. Al-Bukhari]

There is among the doctors who memorized the the Qur'an even have sanad the Qur'an and teach it to others. Worked as a doctor in the morning and afternoon teaching the Qur'an in the mosque. Not infrequently they advising patients to trusting upon Allah Almighty and not trusting upon doctors or medicine. They understand that just because the doctors and medicine and Allah Almighty who gives healing. If the patient's arrival a small child, sometimes the children were asked about al-Quran recitation already up where.

The female doctor wearing a the niqab is something usual. Similarly, doctors thick beard. When a they prayed the prayer in congregation except in an emergency that requires the existence with the patient.
The rich people in Saudi Arabia realized if they are in the property rights of others. Many charitable foundation that stands to be a bridge between the rich with the poor and the needy, such as the distribution of zakat, groceries, tools and household utensils.


People are poor and in need of a register and fulfilled the terms will have the opportunity to receive assistance. Many of these rich people who waqaf the building for shelter, waqaf the mosque, and others. They compete donation clicking the wealth in the way Allah.
"Parable (income incurred by the) those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed that grows seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains. Allah multiplies (reward) for whom He wills. And Allah Area (his bounty)the Knower. "[al-Baqarah 2:261].
When the Ramadan (fasting month) arrive increasingly seen their generosity. Majesty of breaking of the fast, free the imprisoned because of debts, distributing clothes for Eid, Sadaqah, and others. Therefore, the poor in Saudi is not jealous of the rich. And the rich do not insult the poor. Each carry out its obligations.

Allah Azza w a Jalla says:

Ibn Abbaas anhuma said:
كَانَ رَسُوْلُ للهِ صلى لله علیه وسلم أَجْوَدَ النَّاسِ وَكَانَ أَجْوَدُ مَا يَكُوْنُ فِي رَمَضَانَ حِیْنَ يَلْقَاهُ جِبْرِيْلُ
In the past the Prophet muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wasallam is the most generous person, and he is very generous when Ramadan at the moment jibril met.[Muttafaqun ‘alaih].

4.the security
Things strongly felt in Saudi Arabia country (wahabi state) is favors of security. Someone not afraid to travel far with family at night except to Allah Almighty. Terminals do not imagine as in other countries, which often occurs crime. Private cars in Saudi do not need to be stored tightly in the garage. At night


merchandise belonging to street vendors around the Prophet's Mosque was left lying just outside the closed cloth until morning without being take it. Because Public in Saudi implanted fear of the Day of Judgment, which is a bit much affect their daily behavior.

5.Amar Ma’ruf Nahi Mungkar
Author's knowledge, the State Saudi Arabia is the only country that has a religious police formal who joined in haiah Amar Ma'ruf Nahi unjust. Their position parallel with other police, and is under the Ministry of the Interior.


Haiah Amar Ma'ruf Nahi unjust is not to be confused with the existing organizations in our country (Indonesia), because haiah in Saudi Arabia is part of the state apparatus. Their status as civil servants, and given the limited authority. They are not uniform like other forces, but they are more respected than of security police.

The religious police task to to eradicate an unjust, both in the field of faith, such as the eradication of witches, shamans and others, as well as in the field of morals, such as the eradication of courtship, liquor and etc.. Besides, it also publishes the enforcement of the symbols-symbols of Islam, such as prayer in congregation. They patrol ahead of prayer to invite people to establish prayers and stop other activities, such as trade in shops, markets, gas stations or other places. Similarly, places or events that are expected to be used for immoral acts will be sent troops from the haiah Amar Ma'ruf Nahi unjust, and for the people who violate it will be fined. This is what makes this solid oil state.

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala says:
وَلْتَكُنْ مِنْكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى الْخَیْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْھَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَأُولَٰئِكَ ھُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ
And let any of you who invite to goodness, and commanding the good deeds and prohibit from munkar, and they're the lucky ones.[Ali Imran 3:104].

6. Islamic law upheld
In Saudi Arabia, person were killed after a judicial process that shar'ie, will get qisas (retaliation) suicide - of course - in a way that in the Shari'ah. That is decapitated with a sword in front of the crowd. Typically, before death, the person who gets this Qisas exhorted to repent and be reminded about the primacy over the world the afterlife. As for the other subjects that are not easily shed human blood.

allah azza wa jalla says:
وَلَكُمْ فِي الْقِصَاصِ حَیَاةٌ يَا أُولِي الَْألْبَابِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ
And in Qisas there (guarantees of) life for you, O men of understanding, so that you may fear Allah.[al-Baqarah 2:179].

7. Praying for mutually
Among the good habits of people Saudi Arabia is when they to meet will pray between one other. As pray to always be salvation, blessing, grace of Allah, and others. Pray for each other's habits certainly brings the influence on the harmonious relations among communities.


8. Soldiers and Police Bearded
In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (wahabi state), we will familiar get soldiers and police were bearded, because letting the beard for men is an obligation, and the common good is the police or others.

Rasulullah shallahu alahi wassalam says:
أَحْفُوْا الشَّوَارِبَ وَأَعْفُوْا اللِّحَى
Trim the mustache and let the beard.[HR. al-Bukhari, dari Abdullah bin Umar].

Similarly, many of them wearing trousers above the ankles to the practice of word the Prophet muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wasallam:
مَا أَسْفَلَ مِنَ الْكَعْبَیْنِ مِنَ الإِزَارِ فَفِي النّارِ
What is there under the ankles of the sheath is in hell.[HR. al-Bukhari].

Many cops who stop to stop by the mosque to fulfill prayers. It all does not disturbing their duties. Some time even held competitions recitation the Qur'an to the police and soldiers.

9. supermarket
When we entered the supermarket in Saudi Arabia then we will not listen to the songs in the play out loud. Mostly no sound, or sometimes the play is murattal the Qur'an. Fifteen or thirty minutes before the prayer time arrives, the buyer has be asked out leaving the supermarket for made his prayers.

Allah Azza wa Jalla says:
فَأَقِیمُوا الصَّلَاةَ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ كَانَتْ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِینَ كِتَابًا مَوْقُوتًا
Then Establish the prayer, real prayer is an obligation that has been timed.[an Nisa’ 4:103].

10. Al-Qur’an
Saudi governmentconcern to the the Qur'an is very big. Start of special printing the Qur'an in which joins the Ulama and Sheikh-Sheikh who are experts in the field of the Qur'an, writing, how to read, tafsir, and others.


Tahfizh the Qur'an also flamboyant. Almost every village there is a mosque which held Halaqah Tahfizh the Qur'an, usually for boys. For grown man also exist, although not as much as Halaqah Tahfizh children. As for Tahfizh women, both children and adults were held in special schools enclosed not in the mosque, except in big mosques such as the Prophet's Mosque, as indeed where possible.

In Arabia (wahabi state) also there are institutions whose activities are focused on Tahfizh for the elderly. Many parents who memorized the the Qur'an when he was already more than 50 years.

11. Istisqa 'Prayers
When the time does not rain, there is usually a direct command from the government to mosques across the country to pray Istisqa ', namely praying for rain to emulate the Prophet muhammad sallallaahu' alaihi wasallam.


12. prayers Jama'ah
Soon as adzan offices, shops and shopping malls immediately closed. Agency patrol car Amar Ma'ruf Nahi unjust began moving into the street and alley in the Village. With a microphone in one hand, they invite person to the masjid, reminding those who are still busy with their jobs, and cracking down on stores or offices that have not been closed. Their business license could be revoked because of the a mistake. We do not know, whether there is a view like this in any other country? Scholars generally Arabia is the obligatory prayer fatwa worshipers.


In the village where the author lived were not so solid, the mosque has seven shaf, each of which can be filled in about thirty person. Maghrib and Isha prayers When, whole rows are usually filled. Meanwhile, in another prayer time, usually more than half filled. An Umrah pilgrims who've been told that the ambience here as pilgrims pray the Eid prayer in the village ambiance. Maybe he was Air hyperbole, but it could be also her right.

13.State The Most Secure
No exaggeration if we say that Saudi Arabia is one of the safest countries in the world today. Formerly pilgrimage path is the path of death because obstacles of the robbers. When the pilgrimage is a journey that is scary, so that at the moment said goodbye to the companion Tolan, they detachable the worries will not meet again. Conditions were changed after the founder of the dynasty of King Abdul Aziz Saudi third- became ruler of the Arabian Peninsula. He assigning each tribe to maintain the security of their respective territories. If any pilgrims were robbed or killed in the region. Since then, pilgrims can be calm in living their religious journey. (wahabi state)

At present, nearly no family in Saudi which do not have cars, including the poor though. Even almost every grown male has his own car. But most homes do not have a garage. The cars they just parked in roadside. Soon as all the time without any worries disappear. Means no theft there? There are, but rarely, when the opportunity to misbehave so great.

A friend once entered bus terminal Jeddah city - second biggest town before the Fajr with a seven-piece luggage alone. But apparently he did not see any disturbance. When Fajr prayer time came, he went to mushalla terminal and leave it just as much stuff in a side street and goods is not lost. Imagine if the same thing occurred in Jakarta or Surabaya!

"And Allah has promised to those among you who believe and do righteous deeds that He will indeed make their ruling on the earth, as He had made those before them in power, and will firmly establish for those religious which have blessed His to them, and he was really will swap (state) them, after they are in fear into safe through. They remained worship clicking mine to no partners to anything with Me. And he who (remained) disbelieved after (promise) that, then they are wicked people. "[An-Nur 24:55].

الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَلَمْ يَلْبِسُوا إِيمَانَھُمْ بِظُلْمٍ أُولَٰئِكَ لَھُمُ الَأمْنُ وَھُمْ مُھْتَدُونَ
People who believe and not confuse their faith with injustice (shirk), they are the ones which got their of security and it is people who got directions. [Al-An'am 6:82].

That's part of what we see in the country of Saudi Arabia. We do not deny that there are still shortcomings here and there. But no doubt also that the tawheed da'wah initiated by Sheikh Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab rahimahullah has resulted sweet. Those which want to enforce Islamic law should take the example of his mission trip.

Perfection belongs only to Allah Ta'ala. Our duty as a servant is made repairs as best we can. May God Almighty forgive our sins.
