(6 Aug 2017) LEADIN:Hundreds of people have braved monsoon weather to visit the shrine of Nebi Ayoub in Oman.And a handful have even hiked deep into the wet fog to a spring that once healed the prophet, according to local legend.STORYLINE:Monsoon season brings heavy clouds and verdant green to the southern province of Dhofar on the eastern edge of the Arabian peninsula in Oman. The sun disappears behind rain-heavy clouds that cloak mountains and cities alike, bringing flash floods, colourful blooms, and tens of thousands of tourists every year.Many come to visit the shrine of the Abrahamic prophet Job, called Ayoub in Arabic, an hour outside of Salalah.Cars pick their way slowly through the fog, up to a mosque and shrine marking the spot where Ayoub was entombed, according to legend.Despite the poor visibility, Mohammad Siyabi, an Omani tourist from the sultanate's north, says it easy to find the tomb on the well-marked route.And he welcomes the lush changes in the landscape that this wet weather brings."About two months ago there weren't any beautiful vistas or even trees in the Dhofar region. In this season the view changes completely - the vegetation is everywhere and the colour is heavenly," he says.People queue to enter the shrine and take a few moments inside for spiritual reflection at the holy spot.It's the first time Adnan al-Mahrouqi has visited this place.He says it "opens your spirit" and is "relaxing for all".For those prepared to spend a bit more time outside in the rain, this site is home to another important place.Down below the shrine is a natural spring where it was said Ayoub cured a mortal wound.Local legend has it that the spring's crystal-clear mountain water is restorative.And even if the visitors aren't swimming in it to test that theory, everyone still leaves Ayoub's mountain soaking wet.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
