I found an intresting interview with Shaikh Abdullah Aljaber Alsabah .. telling us the meaning behind most of the Kuwaiti area names.
The above video is the first part of the interview and if your interested you can see also the secound part of it.
Interesting! especially the story about alfarwaniya and smoking in old times
Ya7laila Shaikh Abdullah!!! I loved the interview so much!! I never knew there was a story behind every name. 7asaita china grandpa telling bedtime stories! I loved the way he was telling them 😀 Do you know which date this interview took place? 80s?
Ok I think it must have been way earlier than the 80s! 😀
woow very interesting , thanx
i’m sure he’d be adamantly against messila’s name being changed.
