Famous Saudi Arabians
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), categorized as a World Bank high-income economy with a high Human Development Index, is the only Arab country to be part of the G-20 major economies. Not surprisingly, it is the homeland of several billionaires like businessman Mohammed Hussein Ali Al Amoudi who is one of the richest Saudi Arabian citizens in the world and the second richest black person in the world. Another millionaire Maan Abdul Wahed Al-Sanea is famous not just for his vast fortunes, but also for the several educational and charitable facilities he founded. Also famous for its intellectuals and Islamic scholars, the nation has produced the likes of diplomat and author Ghazi Abdul Rahman Al Gosaibi who was considered among Saudi Arabia's topmost technocrats since the mid-1970s. Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah bin Baz, an Islamic scholar and a leading proponent of the Salafi form of Islam served as the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia from 1993 until his death in 1999. Even though the nation is known for its limitations on women’s rights, women like Samia al-Amoudi, Samira Khashoggi, and Wajeha al-Huwaider have challenged the patriarchal society to emerge as successful professionals in diverse fields. This section provides you information about the life and works of famous Saudi Arabians.
