Makkah landscape goes green following continuous Rains

This year, the Kingdom saw unprecedented rain in the Kingdom bringing floods to to valleys and low lying areas of cities.

The Ministry of Education also suspended education in institutions several times in the last few weeks due to heavy rains.

The whole season was preceded by drought in various regions of the Kingdom which prompted the King to issue a decree instructing Mosques across the Kingdom to establish Istisqa Prayers back in November.

The cities of the Two Holy Mosques which normally receive rain 2-3 days each year saw rain continuously every other day for the last week or so.

As a result the landscape and valleys of the Two Holy Cities has become green amid continuous supply of rain water.
However it is expected that the landscape will go barren again after the rainy season subsides.
