Check this out before going out for another drink:

"The government interprets sharia as allowing corporal punishment for certain criminal offenses, including court-ordered flogging in cases of alcohol consumption and extramarital sex by Muslims. Courts typically reduced sentences to imprisonment or a fine. The Supreme Judicial Council reported six convictions that resulted in flogging sentences in 2018."

oil and natural gas are not the same thing. is the question suggesting they are both biggest exports, depending on how you count it? maybe you should pick one, or it should be clearer why both are there
