The Saudi King Abdullah was a powerful leader who died at the age of 90 due to the long illness. The reformist King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al-Saud ruled his kingdom during a period of an unprecedented explosion in the Arab world.
The King was deeply religious and managed his nation during the bizarre outbreaks. The late Abdullah will long be remembered as one of the most reform-minded leaders in the history of the Saudi Kingdom. The untold story of this reformist ruler can be found in the history of the Muslim world.
In fact, one of the most renowned American authors Rob Sobhani has published the complete story about the contributions of late Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al-Saud. The book was published by the name of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia: A Leader of Consequence. It is a tribute to King Abdullah by the author.
And the best part is that while preparing this book, Rob Sobhani travelled to the kingdom five times to meet King Abdullah, his close advisers, nerds, reporters and other Saudi citizens. The late Abdullah reformed the socio-economic condition of Muslim females, therefore he will always be known as a reformer among people.
Among all his important contributions to contemporary Saudi society, the most memorable one was his efforts to revise the country’s succession mechanism. His two decades at the wheel of one of the West’s key strategic confederates in the Saudi world left an unforgettable and enigmatic legacy.
