    Mohammad bin Salman was designated as Saudi Arabia's new crown prince in June 2017. Since then, he has rapidly consolidated power and led Saudi Arabia towards some progressive reforms, such as granting women the right to drive. He also has plans to privatize certain segments of the economy, with the goal of reducing Saudi Arabia's economic dependency on oil. These changes, along with a suppression of Saudi Arabia's religious Right, could potentially begin to destabilize one of the Middle East's most powerful nations.

    There is no Muslim law that says you can't live a luxurious life, that's why every Muslim ruler since the Ottomans lived pretty luxurious lives. Mansa Musa , who spent so much gold he lowered its value was a Muslim.
