Al Nahda is a Saudi football club from the city of Dammam, Eastern Province. Established in 1949, they currently play in the Saudi First Division.

Club Establishment:

The Saudi Nahda Club was founded between 1948 and 1949. The founding began when Abdul Karim Al-Salami, the founder of Nahda, played for Al-Hilal Club in Al-Khobar in 1940 and 1942, along with Abdul Rahman Al-Salami. However, there was a division among their players, misunderstandings arose, and a group of players left to establish another team called Nahdah in Al-Khobar. Among them were Abdul Aziz Al-Mazroo, Sulaiman Al-Qahtani, Al-Maiber, Khaled Al-Dossary, and Abdul Mohsen Al-Duwaighi. In 1948, Abdul Karim Al-Salami left Al-Khobar and moved to Dammam. He chose not to join the Al-Ittifaq Club, especially since he had responsibilities with Nahdah in Al-Khobar. He met with some of his friends, including Ibrahim Shareeda, Jumaaan Bin Hilal, Rashid Bouhmaid, Khalifa Jasim Al-Dossary (known as Khalifa Al-Jaib), Saad Shareeda, Sultan Abu Majeed, Daeij Salman Al-Dossary, and Ahmed Daeij, and they founded a team called Al-Nar (The Fire). Its headquarters were located behind the Coast Guard building west of the Al-Dawaser district, near the electricity company. The team's meetings were held at Abdul Karim Al-Salami's house in the Qibla neighborhood on 18th Street. Since it was new, it required efforts and support during its establishment. Abdul Razzaq bin Hamad Al-Dossary, the president of the Al-Barq Club in Dammam, was asked for assistance. Abdul Karim Al-Salami approached him, seeking the presidency to merge the two teams and work together. However, Abdul Razzaq declined with great respect, as he had his team and did not want to leave it. Nonetheless, Abdul Karim Al-Salami's efforts did not stop, and due to the necessity, an invitation was extended to Abdul Razzaq in 1371 AH (Islamic calendar) to come to his house. Before the invitation, Al-Dossary attended Al-Salami's house and was surprised to find players and Al-Barq's fans there without any prior arrangements. Afterward, Abdul Karim delivered a speech in which he announced his relinquishment of the presidency of Nahda to Abdul Razzaq bin Hamad Al-Dossary. He was surprised to see that all the players and fans of Al-Barq had applauded this proposal, abandoned their team and inviting their president to become the president of Nahda. One year later, the team traveled to Bahrain in 1372 AH to play a single match there.
