The community initiative that is organized and led by Al Mudhairab youth has made many tangible contributions in serving this rich oasis over the past few years, but for the first time it has reached out to the old market, so it stirs up enthusiasm, addresses minds, stimulates feelings, and succeeds in collecting the scattered pieces of a legacy whose heirs believed that the winds of time had left him. It has a trace except what the memory of the shadow of the elderly preserves, and death has not snatched him yet.
Several months ago, on this page of Al-Watan newspaper, I published an article about the town of Al Mudhairib, its historical position, its archaeological landmarks, and its scientific and literary figures, which are a real model for the contributions of the Omanis and their civilization, which varied and included various educational, engineering, cultural, agricultural, marine and other fields, and how the local community in its integration His solidarity, initiatives, and efforts of its members in every village was fully responsible for commercial, educational and social activity.
In the past, it played the role of government institutions today in building mosques, aflaj, councils, and schools, running markets, supervising and maintaining them, and allocating endowments and money houses to serve them. This legacy, which we are proud of and cherish, and we talk about fluently in our writings, lectures, seminars, studies, and curricula requires us today to preserve, build on, invest and employ it in activating solidarity community work, inactivating the tourism, cultural and commercial sector, in providing diverse job opportunities for Omani men and women, and preserving handicrafts and crafts and linking Individuals with their villages, their heritage, the work of their fathers, and the strengthening of belonging and adherence to them…
The article raised questions about (the role of the competent authorities and their efforts in all of this? Why not initiate coordination with businessmen, tourism companies, and the local community to establish a partnership
Real and initiatives that contribute to investing the place (Al Mudhaireb market and its surroundings), enhancing its tourism value, restoring its lanes, houses, landmarks, squares, palaces, and old councils, and transforming it into a model site that tells the life of the past.
as it is? And establishing modern cafes, allocating one of those old houses and turning it into a tourist resort, organizing cultural events…etc?
Will this not lead to crowding of the place with tourists, revitalizing tourism and activating this vital and important sector?). What applies to Al Mudhayrib applies to hundreds of villages, cities, and other Omani oases. At the dawn of Friday, the seventh of April 2017, a joyful surprise emerged from the womb of the community initiative led by the youth of Al Mudhaireb to gradually restore the old market, the pulse of life, and the launch of its social, economic and cultural activity at the will of the people of this historic town, which gave birth to hundreds of scientists, writers, poets, writers, and active social figures, emphasizing.
However, society often precedes and surpasses the competent and supervisory government agencies and institutions with its initiatives, aspirations, and achievements.
The community initiative that is organized and led by Al Mudhairab youth has made many tangible contributions in serving this rich oasis over the past few years, but for the first time it has reached out to the old market, so it stirs up enthusiasm, addresses minds, stimulates feelings, and succeeds in collecting the scattered pieces of a legacy whose heirs believed that the winds of time had left him.
It has no trace except what the memory of the shadow of the elderly has preserved, and death has not yet kidnapped him, and the hand of this blessed initiative was able to restore a life that I do not say we almost missed.
but we missed it, and without that, I would not have seen with my own eyes the face of a sheik, the life of the market regained the radiance of his face that absorbed it Omar’s years exceeded eighty years, and his commercial activity withdrew from the activity of the sheik, who shared the youth’s gift and determination and wanted to have his distinguished fingerprints on a day that he repeatedly confirms that it is not like the boring, monotonous and slow days that passed him in his last years. (Were it not for that), that elderly mother would not have stubbornly resisted her pains and aches, and overcame a body that had been worn out by years, so she did not leave a place in which she did not hit.
weakened or stressed, so she went out of her house, which she does not leave except to visit a doctor to testify for herself what her children told him about a piece of news that she argued with them a lot, but they did not succeed in convincing her.
The truth of their news and the scenes they depicted for her was almost erased from her memory until she settled next to a consort who was a few years younger than her. She bedded a mat on which women’s supplies and herbs from the old times were presented. She raised her palm to the sky in praise and thanks for having gathered her on this day, which ignited a spark of activity that was not You feel it for years.
And if it wasn’t for that I would not have seen that happiness engulfing hearts and joy almost jumping from the features and faces, and the smile was a slogan taken by all market leaders, women and men, old and children, sellers and shoppers, tourists and visitors who came to respond to the call, fish and livestock merchants, farmers who carried the products of their farms, craftsmen.
Professionals, makers of sweets and various popular dishes, etc., furnished their rugs, restored their old shops, gathered in the benches of shops, sipping cups of Omani coffee, restoring to the market its position, its activity, its artistic paintings, its old customs and traditions, its commercial practices, and its meetings that bring together the members of the community.
And if it were not for that, I would not have seen that flowing activity, leaping spirit, inherent creativity, and a growing sense of the importance of work that characterizes the smart young man (Muhaisin), who dedicated a market store to display the models of ships that he makes himself in shapes, colors and sizes with the perfection that robs minds and dazzles the viewer with these captivating artworks Which confirms that we are facing Omani materials that deserve encouragement and that we should stand by them and support them because they are truly a gain and pride for Oman.
Although the community initiative in Al Mudhaireb included several activities and events that included a large-scale cleaning and landscaping campaign, a lunch gathering in the (Burj House), popular games, competitions for children, a horse show, and a cultural evening, the success of the Mudhairib children who contributed money and hard efforts and continued Work day and night for several days preceding the actual or actual activity in the repetition.
