For us, rain is a gift. Rain is a sign of life.
But this weekend some people passed away because of rain.
The last three rainy days were unexpected. It was raining cats and dogs.
Many people went to see Wadis. Men, women and children of course, but not all of them returned back safely to their homes. A mother with her three young daughters were taken by the angry wadi and found dead at midnight. the girls were covered with rocks and the wadi’s rubbish. Painful scene. It was a sad holiday that about ten people in my hometown passed away only in two days because of wadis.
I hope people in Oman will be more cautious when rain comes again.
May Allah protect us and help those who lost dears to them.
