862. Swimming in their new country
© Bruce Goodman 19 February 2016
Basma and her husband, Tareq, were moving to another country. How wonderful! Praise God!
Basma and her husband, Tareq, were strict followers of their religion. They were open to a little leeway culturally. Their two daughters, Fatima and Yasmin, would go to the secular school in their new country.
And look! They even went to the beach and let their daughters go swimming! It’s what was done in their new country! Not that they wore half-naked swimming garb, of course, like those secular sinful people. Modesty was called for. Their daughters would swim fully clothed.
And they did! The wet clothes were heavy. The daughters drowned in a tidal rip.
