Graffiti in Sakaka – “Abu Ghayth”

أبو غيث – “Abu Ghayth”. This type of graffiti is very common. “Abu” (which means “father of”) is used in this way to create a nickname, either positive or derogatory. In this case, literally “Father of Rain”. I’m not sure exactly what this particular nickname implies and if it is positive or not.
