Assalaamaoalaikum. Thanks all for commenting.  I have been really busy lately.
abuyisha, I never did consider the currency level of different professional roles for each country.  You could be right, but how would you explain the housing difference between Americans, etc and Phillipinos? I heard that there is a huge differfence of the quality of housing for different expat's as well..
Yes, i will try to remember to make dua for you during Ummrah. 
Sign Reader, I laughed alot about the comments that people made about which country should be number 1 or should should be the top 3. hahah.
Sign Reader, could you not see yourself living there as well?Wink
Thanks again to all.

The same way.  You are offered living accommodations equal to or greater than what is assumed you have in America - given your education and work experience.  Also, often, workers from the Philippines aren't given the option of bringing their spouse and children.

Assalamu Alaikum,
Abuayisha: Saudi Arabia is also referred to as "the Land of the Two Holy Mosques" and the Arabian Peninsula by the Saudis themselves.

This is an important aspect that whenever anyone wants to visit these sacred sites and perform Islamic rituals, such as Umrah and Hajj, it is very much possible for him or her. Everyone evaluates things from his or her own angle. Living in a city close to Makkah and Madinah, for example Jeddah, may definitely provide even additional advantage that helps one visit these holy places conveniently.

Lady, my supplications are with you. May Allah (SWT) make things easy for you. And whenever you perform Umrah or Hajj, please do remember us in your supplications. Jazak Allah Khair.

May Allah (SWT) guide us all.


Then which of the favours of your Lord will ye deny?
