إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّآ إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
HM Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said 18/11/1940 – 10/01/2020
Oman cried and bids tearful farewell to its beloved leader His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said. He was laid to rest in the Royal Family Cemetery in Baushar today.
In a statement issued by ONA said: “The funeral was led by His Majesty the Sultan Haitham bin Tariq Al Said, and was attended by Their Highnesses and members of the royal family, and military leaders, members of the State Council and members of the Shura Council.”
“The funeral prayer was held at the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, where the Sultan’s body was wrapped with the national flag.” The statement added.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
