Heavy rains fell on Makkah Al-Mukarramah in the last period every day for at least a whole month, and those who are well-established in the science of arithmetic and weather say that it has not occurred like this in (40) years.
However, I have read the memoirs of a pilgrim who wrote 175 years ago, when he faced the flood in Makkah, which he likened to (the Day of Judgment), and he says in it:
I believe that the flood took place on the eighth day of the pilgrimage, seventeen years after my last visit to it, when the water rose seven feet in the sanctuary, and this time the sky was black and gloomy from the east, and the clouds were a smoky mist, and, as I previously noted, they are of the type which is followed by heavy rain, those days witnessed a great change from the blue color of the sky to become dark black like charcoal.
Some of our group went out to take a look, and I stayed with the rest, and if the water level rose suddenly without leaving us room to take our precautions, it was described by those who saw the water coming from Mina with huge waves, as if it was now flowing in mud channels three or four deep. feet across all the streets.
A stone barrier rises in front of each of the entrances to the sanctuary, and it is clear that it was built for the purpose of preventing water from entering in conditions such as the flood, but there is no way to (repel or repel it), and I took a place above one of these barriers to watch the overwhelming torrent that washes away the rubble of the markets and cages on its way The chickens and all sorts of fruit and bread and empty baskets, the beams and ceilings of the wooden stalls, in addition to the dogs that you see swimming here and there, and which the current pushes back, to meet its fate.
After three days of the flood, it seemed to me that the number of deaths was increasing steadily, and ten days later, the number of funerals that pass through the sanctuary became so great that it became a daily occurrence, to the extent that I counted in one day: (263) funerals – and most of them died by drowning in the sanctuary Because they can’t swim.
Those increasing numbers only indicate that the majority of the deceased had no friends, or that they were not worth the trouble of carrying them to the Kaaba, passing through the road to the cemetery. Men with cholera could be seen lying on the edges of the streets, without being passed by a good Samaritan. As for the people with measles and typhoid in all stages of the disease – (so they spoke without embarrassment) -.
May God have mercy on our teacher (Diaa al-Din Rajab), who, if one day terror shakes him, shouts, saying: “O safety of the fearful.”
