Well in heavily light polluted Dubai a 7x50 with its large exit pupil, nebulae get usually lost. Get a 10x50 or, better a 16x50. Nikon Aculon A251 is a good one for the price and they have better BAK-4 prisms with round exit pupils.
I wonder if those would help, I can barely see 2 or 3 stars from my house, though 7 stars from Orion are visible-ish, no Pleiades, light pollution map says the area around my house is like 200-606 , I always have to go somewhere else to do anything dark sky related. The 7x50's do show me some more, but I was able to see 2 of jupiter's moons , and the moon looked amazing
