Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)


Saudi Arabia has granted licenses to more than 200 projects with 100 per cent foreign ownership during the third quarter of this year, Saudi Arabia’s Investment Highlights reported.

According to the report, Saudi Arabia has licensed 306 new foreign investment projects; a 21 per cent year-on-year increase relative to 2019.

“Overall, Saudi Arabia licensed 812 new foreign investment projects in the first nine months of 2020, which represents only a three per cent slowdown compared to the same period last year,” it added.

The report confirmed that each month of the third quarter of this year has witnessed an annual increase, while the month of September experienced the largest number of licensed projects.

The report also disclosed that 68 per cent of the projects licensed during the quarter were 100 per cent foreign ownerships, while the remaining projects were joint ventures with Saudi companies.
