Sign Seen on a Fujairah Road Approaching Al Bidyah

It was lovely to spot this sign (attached) to welcome people to the little town of Al Bidyah.

This village is located 38 kms north of Fujairah City, 25 km this south of Dibba and is best known for its Ottoman mosque.

More information about the history and the architecture of this building and the artifacts that have been found in this area are available at this link.

This sign spells out the everyday Arabic greeting but as stated in an earlier post this sign is a blessing, a gift and a challenge for the living of our days.

At this holiday season I extend you this greeting:

As-Salāmu `Alaykum السلام عليكم Peace Be With You!
