Sultan Haitham receives mourners at Al-Alam Palace

إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّآ إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ

HM Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said 18/11/1940 – 10/01/2020

The Diwan of Royal Court issued the following statement:

“The Diwan of Royal Court would like to inform that His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tariq bin Taimur Al Said and the ruling family will receive mourners on the death of the late Sultan Qaboos bin Said bin Taimour Al-Said at Al-Alam Palace during the next three days, starting from today (Sunday), 16th of Jumada Al-Ula, the January 12th 2020, from 9 am to 12 pm, and at the evening time from 4 pm to 5:30 pm.”

“May the Almighty Allah (SWT) rest the deceased soul in mercy and forgiveness, and to reward His Majesty in the hereafter for the achievements and sacrifices for the sake of Oman and its people”.

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.
