A Gift of Dates: Saudi Arabia’s Unique Gesture to Pakistan

In a remarkable demonstration of generosity and camaraderie, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) recently announced the launch of a gift programme. This program, known as the ‘Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques’ Gift Programme’, is set to deliver 30,000 individual gifts to the people of Pakistan. These gifts will consist of high-quality dates, which are to be distributed during the holy month of Ramadan.

The Announcement

The Saudi embassy in Islamabad was where the exciting news was derived from our sources. Several key officials were present during the announcement, further demonstrating the importance of the initiative. One of those who graced the event was Ambassador Nawaf bin Saeed Al-Malkyi. The nature and timing of the programme reflects the profound, fraternal ties that exist between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

The Program and Its Stakeholders

The initiative is brought to life under the careful watch of King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz. Additionally, Minister Sheikh Dr. Abdullatif bin Abdulaziz Al Al-Sheikh will be closely monitoring its execution. The programme’s goal is to distribute up to 10 tonnes of dates. These dates are not merely another routine gift. Instead, they carry a symbolic interpretation of goodwill and affection from Saudi Arabia to the people of Pakistan.

Pakistan’s Re-election and the Saudi Crown Prince

A heart-warming moment transpired amidst all this when Pakistan’s freshly re-elected Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif, received a congratulatory phone call from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman (MBS). During the call, the renewed declaration of Saudi Arabia’s support for Pakistan was heard loud and clear, further strengthening the ties between the two countries.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif reciprocated these good wishes towards the Saudi leadership. In the same conversation, he invited the Crown Prince for an official visit to Pakistan, thereby reinforcing the momentum of strengthening bilateral relations.


In conclusion, Saudi Arabia’s recent initiative is not merely an act of distributing dates. Instead, it represents a powerful gesture that speaks volumes about the mutual respect and solidarity shared by these two nations. The subsequent developments hold promise for further bolstering their relationship and a brighter future together.
