Water cut in KL

kampungUnbelievably, while living in tropical Malaysia, I’ve found myself in the middle of a water cut.

There was barely enough water from the tap for me to make wudu. And we actually have a water storage tank! I thought my water-rationing Jordan days were over.

SubhanAllah. Having uninterrupted tap water is a blessing that is so easily taken for granted, especially in countries that ordinarily have a lot of rainfall.

This news article explains the reason for the water cut, which started yesterday morning. Alas, one of the MRT construction works accidentally burst a water main. This translates to no municipal water for folks like me – 1 million residents, in total. Meanwhile, there are also water cuts in Hulu Langat because of ammonia contamination in Langat River.

Please pray for us and for others in countries with little or no access to clean water. With all this lack of rain, think of ways to harvest rainwater for yourself and your families.

Based on the weather forecast for KL, from the Malaysian Meteorological Department website, it looks like there’ll be rain on Wednesday and Thursday. InshaAllah, Ya Rabb!
