If you think that Saudi Arabia is all about desert, sandstorm and camel – think again!

Now, the country has announced that it will open the world’s first ever ‘halal’ nightclub called WHITE in the coastal city of Jeddah, and as you may have guessed, this announcement doesn’t sit well with the citizens – especially the conservatives.

For starters, how can a nightclub be ‘halal’ in the first place? We’re no experts but the news certainly sparked controversy and raised questions among Muslims who find the idea absolutely ridiculous!

According to the organisers, the food and beverages served at the venue will all be non-alcoholic, adhering to the ‘halal’ standards of the Islamic dietary law. But ‘halal’ refers to more than just food, as it also applies to all aspects of life and social context.

The news spread like wildfire on social media with the Arabic hashtags #DiscoInJeddah and #JeddahDisco trending and people obviously have all sort of opinions and reactions.
