OurWorld - This is Oh So Saudi - Inshallah!

One of the most common terms heard in Saudi Arabia on a daily basis is "Inshallah," which means "god willing" or "if it's god's will."  If it's god's will, it will happen - and if it's not god's will, it won't.  This term is used so often that it gets tiring for a lot of people to hear it.  For customer service, it is used as an excuse absolving the company from any responsibility - "Well, it wasn't god's will so there was nothing I could do about it."
