Der Diwan veröffentlichte folgenden englischen Text (Auszüge):
“To the people of the beloved homeland in all ist districts,, to the Arab and Islamic nations and to the world at large.
It is with hearts filled with faith in Allah and his Providence and with great sorrow and deep sadness – yet with complete satisfaction and absolute submission to the will of Almighty Allah, that the Diwan of Royal Court mourns His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, who passed away on Friday, the 14th of Jumada Al-Ula, the 10th of January 2020, after establishing a comprehensive renaissance over the past 50 years since he assumed power on the 23rd of July 1970, and after leading a prudent and triumphant march, abundant with bounty that prevailed all overOman, from corner to corner, and even spread over to the Arab world, Islamic nation and the rest of the world. This renaissance resulted in a balanced foreign policy that was saluted with solemn respect by the whole world.”
“May the Almighty Allah grant us patience to bear this immense loss. (“Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.”).”
