All praise be to Allah for the blessing of living in a country where we can feel safe and secure. All praise be to Allah for the blessing of a wise leadership. All praise be to Allah for the feelings of loyalty and belonging to this homeland. All praise be to Allah for the bounty of Islam and for living under its banner. And peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and Companions.
The homeland is the first place where we begin to experience life. Our sense of identity and belonging stems from here. It is a source of pride for us wherever we go, because it is the place where we belong and it belongs to us. The homeland is a great blessing bestowed by Allah upon us; therefore, we must preserve it and defend it, because it is more precious to us than our souls. In our homeland, our hearts pulsate with hope, our future grows, and we move ahead with our lives amid the ongoing development taking place on its land. In Saudi Arabia, a National Day has been set on the 23rd of September each year in which numerous wonderful events are organized to reflect the heritage of this country.
