Water shortage
Talk about all the insane things happening in the country of my birth, this is one I didn’t think that I would live to see, twice…in my lifetime...Last year, 2014 had us suffering this shortage for 2weeks, in my part of the country, well to be precise in my area, Pretoria, Laudium …South Africa….
To say it was an inconvenience is a complete and utter understatement, coming from work, going to neighbouring communities to refill water for our basic necessities, some even ‘loving’ work for those 2 weeks, not a drop of water. How we take things for granted? How full our masjids were in those 2 weeks…
Well this year we have a crisis….nationally!!! We have been warned that the reservoirs are virtually empty… currently we have some form of drought…in Gauteng, SA …38C today!!!
No watering the gardens, no overuse of water in households, we will be fined, exorbitantly…
In this heat who can afford not to take a shower? The sweat pouring down our face…
During times such as these we can truly understand the need for this basic human right…May Allah make it easy on the Ummah…Ameen Allahuma Ameen
