A Letter from TAISM's Chairperson of the Board Regarding the Passing of HM Sultan Qaboos

Monday, January 27, 2020

Dear TAISM Association,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of The American International School of Muscat, I write to convey the sadness that prevailed upon learning about the death of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said on the 10th of January 2020. His Majesty Sultan Qaboos was the father for the Omani citizens as well as for many expatriates who lived in Oman. I say this because I have visited Oman for the first time in 1974 and I had the chance to witness how Oman progressed and developed since then until today, under his wise leadership and his vision for Oman as well as his balanced political approach for the political environment in the region and worldwide. His Majesty Sultan Qaboos has placed Oman on the map of worldwide remarkable countries pertaining to development, services, safety and comfortable living.

While we extend our heartfelt condolences to HM Sultan Haitham Bin Tariq, Members of the Royal family and to all the citizens of Oman, we pray for Almighty God to bless the soul of HM Sultan Qaboos Bin Said and embrace Him with eternal peace. Moreover, we extend to His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tariq, whom we highly admire and respect, our sincere congratulations and wishes for leading Oman forward towards more glory and success.

May God bless Oman, the people of Oman and the Ruler of Oman.

Fawzi Mushantaf, Chairperson of the Board of Directors, The American International School of Muscat
