Boys laughing and crossing road in San’aa after a flood yesterday…

SubhanAllah, sometimes there is not enough water to even make merig – other times, it rains and floods! No matter how bad it gets though, we need to see the rain as a blessing from Allah subhana wa t’ala after the more recent drought that has left villages and areas of the city without adequate amounts of water…. most Sanaani locals are used to the flooding, and take off their sandles to make it easier to cross the roads…

Saleh injured, leaves Yemen

Asalaamu alaikum,
Saleh has left Yemen as president, and now the vice president – Abd Raboo Mansour Hadi – has taken on the Presidential  responsibilities. Dr. Mohamed Abd Al-Malek Al-Mutawakel, member of the supreme council of the opposition coalition known as the Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) told the Yemen Times that vice-president is the legitimate person to take over the president’s tasks for 60 days and presidential elections are to be held during this period, according to Yemen’s constitution.

Currently, Saleh is in Riyyadh Saudi, seeking medical attention after his presidential compound was attacked on 06/04/2011, admist a national uprising demanding his ouster.

update: A visibly injured President Saleh made a speech from Riyyadh today, 07/07/2011 where he is undergoing treatment for his burns and injuries, to speak to the Yemeni people and encourage them to be patient. He also made mention of the other government officials who are getting treatment alongside him.

Women continue to demonstrate in Sanaa and Ibb, Yemen

Salaam alaikum sisters,

While Yemen is still looking for  the ouster of President  Saleh, the women are coming out to show their support for the cause and to convince Saleh that he was wrong in his comments made last week about how women should stay home, which they saw as a personal attack on their souls and dignity. Here below are photos of some female doctors in the streets demonstrating mashaAllah, leading the other women.

In a show of support and solidarity, the brothers  made a human ring around our sisters to prevent them from unforseen injury or attack from government supporters. President Saleh, while working with the government to try and downplay his remarks, recently met with the leaders of the womens groups to tell them that what they did takes courage and so fourth but it may be too little too late.
