What was the marriage permission process like for you from beginning to end? Enter the details here: I got married to a Saudi girl in the year 2002 in the court of the chief justice according to permission of MOI. At that time, I have my iqamah but for various reasons, I couldn’t come to KSA in time [before it expired]. We have two children. Both have iqamah under their mother’s sponsorship. Right now I shifted my family to Jedda and I’m holding a family visit visa only. I’m facing lots of problems. How could I get the iqamah under my Saudi wife’s sponsorship? I need step by step procedures. Regards, Mohammad Reza.

At last, we get a long awaited glimpse into Princess Sultana’s veiled world for the fourth time! This excerpt reveals that she is more sedate and wiser…although we briefly see a spark of her fiery temper when dealing with her brother Ali. At the end of the excerpt, Princess Sultana revels in a setting that is perfect. Or is it? The title of the book is “More Tears To Cry” so we will just have to find out because life is not perfect…particularly for a woman in Saudi Arabia. Thanks for the excerpt, Jean!

CHAPTER TWO: THE PARTY:
Like a siren song, diamonds call out to most females. I no longer hear that call. I lost my desire for expensive jewelry
the moment I discovered the immense joy one derives from helping others. Now when I am shown exquisite jewels, I do not envisage the glittering gems draped around my neck, hanging from my ears or clasped upon my wrist; instead, I contemplate what the value of those gems could procure. Perhaps it would allow an eager child to take lessons in a good school, or a sickly mother to feel the glow…

Mother, Son Reunited Thanks To Mobile Application: Highly Emotional Reunion After 36 Years Of Separation

A mother and son were reunited in Saudi Arabia after 36 years apart, thanks to a mobile application.
The mother, a Yemeni national in her 50s who lives in the southern Saudi city of Jazan, reportedly got married to a Saudi national when she was 15 years old.
She moved with him to a village near Madinah in western Saudi Arabia where they had their only son, her brother said in remarks published by local news site Sabq on Thursday.
However, seven years after their marriage the couple separated, and the woman moved back to Jazan. Her husband kept their three-year-old son with him.
“My sister eventually got married with another man and they had children,” the brother said. “For years she tried to locate her son from her first marriage, but her efforts were not successful and she knew nothing about her first son for around 36 years,” he added.
A relative one day offered to help and asked for my nephew’s full name, he said.
“He used the Number Book application on his mobile and he came up with a number. I called the number and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the man who answered my call was my sister’s son whom she has been trying to locate for 36 years. He told me that he too had been trying to find his mother for years.”
A meeting between the mother and son was arranged and the reunion took place in Jazan.
“It was highly emotional reunion in which and tears of sweet joy mixed with tears of bitter sorrow over the lost years,” the brother said.
