Obituary Bibliography – Late Sheikh Salim Mohamed Al (Maawali) Mauly

Born 80 years ago as on the Birthday 7th December 2016 – DOB 1936 December 7th (Ammended)

Died August 14, 2017

Happy Birthday Sheikh Majid, I wish you all the best and may we celebrate many many more birthdays to come In Shaa Allah – Late Sheikh Salim Mohamed Al Mauly to me on my 69th Birthday June 7th 2017

My Facebook Friend! (He was very active! Always encouraging and supportive!)

Introduction

I was arguing with Big Madam of The House (BMTH) that I have to force myself to go to the funeral in Al Hail Seeb Masjid Bilaal today August 15, 2017 at 10 a.m. of my friend and brother Sheikh Salim Mohamed Al Mauly (Maawali)! She told me rather forcefully – Do not blame anyone else but yourself if you will again fall down – and then cause panic to others to send you to the Hospital!

I have never gone to funerals since the last time that this had happened to me 18 months back! Besides, I do not feel that comfortable to now drive alone – and even if I did – I do not have my Yukon GMC anymore as being taken by the said Court!

You have acute walking difficulties and breathing problems (short breath) on top of being diabetic acute case and in addition to prostate issues – despite the operation made last year! So I stood for sanity and reasons and let my head rule my heart’s emotions for a change!

What I Had Said!

In all my writings and books I have said the same things – that this world is only a temporary phase in our lives – in the end we will all just die! People will only remember you by your good deeds and the way that you interfaced and interacted with each other!

If you were a good person or not are your actions and deeds for others – and your good behaviours and deeds only! People will either feel sorry that you are gone and pray for you – or be indifferent at best – if not cursing you instead and praying for Eternal Hell Fire for you from the moment that you are dropped into your grave – and The Eternal Hell Fire from there on to The Day of Reckoning (Judgement)!

You will go empty handed as you came into the world – and you will not be able to take anything with you! All your richness and properties you will just leave behind! All the pursuits we have in life for richness and luxuries will end the minute you die! What is left are what good deeds only that you have made in life! All those things you have appropriated taken from others by your ways and threats will be The Hell Fire for you in front of Allah SWT Our Lord God The Al Mighty!

The East Africans continuously say  – Where there is Dhuloom (Injustices) Allah Removes all Blessings Barkah Rahmah and Taqwa – especially in taking by force from a person who has nothing left in life – but even that car you are still paying installments for is snatched from you to pay a Bank instead who have money already! And all Those Big People VIPs and Associated you begged and appealed for Help and Assistance – The Chairmans – The MDs – The GMs – The HEs – The HHs The Directors The Leadership looked the other way not caring or bothered the least!

Panapo Dhulmah Daamu Ina Mwagiika Where there is Injustices Dhuloom blood eventually flows in Swahili – and proved correct so many times in life! The Reality Bites!

Late Salim Mohamed Al (Maawali) Mauly

It was 11.30 pm August 14th 2017 Monday that I got this SMS from a very good friend and brother from ex PDO – Brother Ali Al Mandhry – on the death of Sheikh Salim Al Mauly!

****

انا لله وانا اليه راجعون

With great sorrow I would like to inform you that our elder brother Sh. Salim Mohamed Mauly, Ex PDO Head of Public Health, the brother of Yahya Mauly has passed away. May Allah rest his soul in Janat Firdaus.

Sheikh Salim (Red Turban) With Ali Mandhry!

The funeral will be tomorrow morning Tuesday, 15/8/2017 at 10.00’am at Masjid Bilal, Al Hail North (Shamaliya).

Note; On behalf of Brother Yahya and his sons I am sending this message.

 Ali Said Al-Mandhry

 ****

Sheikh Salim and I were the best of friends! He was like an Elder Brother to me respected and adhered by us all in PDO and those who knew him! His words were gentle cautionary and advisory – and would best avoid saying anything confronting bad or adverse about anyone – even if he was alone in the crowd and refusing to criticize and condemn anyone! In actual fact he would try to bring outside the norm or character of something or someone that perhaps we forgot to have a look at – or we needed to look at!

Gentle and unassuming – quiet and respectful – especially to his Staff and Subordinates! He would even try to bend the rules and regulations in helping someone! Especially in need and in trouble! He avoided like hell differentials and polarisation of people – and sometimes even name and shame those of us in HR who should have known better!

At one time I was in a group of people where with my big mouth I was criticising him a certain individual as is The Person who caused The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution. After the group end thing he would sidle to me and politely correct my mistaken knowledge and theories – in actual fact gently reminding me that there was one person there ‘who was the Direct Relative’ of the person I was attacking – and gently remind me that the person had respected me and had remained so quiet instead of personal attacks in defence of his relative as he did to others! The man respects you – so please respect him also instead! That was Sheikh Salim for you!

A typical case that best describes Sheikh Salim is this incident in PDO! Those of us in HR had a Duty Rota for a week where we were responsible for Emergencies and Other Issues after Office Hours – 4 pm each day till next starting day at 7am. The Rota was like this. If the Duty Officer was not available then you move to the next week Duty Week Officer. That was to safeguard the system – and in case of Real Big Emergencies more Officers could be called depending on The Emergencies at task!

It was not my Duty that week but I got a call from an Irate Expatriate Wife (British) that by accident she had reversed her car and had hit her puppy dog! I am writing this also so the present Management PDO can compare and contrast how the Ex Retired Pensioners did their works in comparison to the present – no complaints and beyond the Call for Duty! Far and Beyond! Without complaints! Professional, Ethical and Principled always! With no publicity nor advertisements!

She was very angry that The Duty Officer had bluntly told her – he comes from the current stock type of Staff – work like the book thrown at them – I am not responsible for animals – certainly not knocked down dogs! This is not in my Job Description to look after dogs too!  She was enraged mad more that the man was laughing when she had told him – can you hear the dog in pain – as she was talking to him on the phone!

The man was also cursing why the lady had woken him up at 2 am for a Silly Thing like knocking down a dog! By her own carelessness – even if in those days cars still did not have reverse lights cameras! But what she was More Angry about was this Duty Officer suggesting to her to Go Forward and run down to (finish) to kill it off! How could he tell me this? – she yelled!

She was so offended and had made a case about it later to PDO Management – but it put them into a Sensitive Mode because how do you penalize someone Omani who refuses to get involved in ‘Dog Issues’ knowing how Muslims (Arabs) treat dogs – or at least a majority of them!

Meanwhile, the Lady had complained to The Manager on Duty – who suggested to contact me instead as my role was for next week! Wait a minute! It is not about me – but about Sheikh Salim! He told me that even Medical Department PDO did not have a Vet – so the lady had to find someone else outside! She had tried and failed!

Sheikh Salim had volunteered to help anyway and as it was weekend night it was not easy to get someone. Sheikh Salim had found a Vet and took him to the house and sent the poor puppy still yapping into a ‘quiet sleep mode’! Sheikh Salim and I then received an apology from the Crying Now Lady who had labelled all of us (Omanis) ‘You people’ as cruel and heartless people – because of the way she got treated by The Earlier Officer (Omani also!)

That is Sheikh Salim for you! He did not need to find a Vet late at night – nor take the Vet to The Ladies house – and wait till the puppy had peacefully died. I hope The Senior Management of PDO are reading this – to compare and contrast what you had before – and you are having now!

Frankly, I do not have the knowledge of what can be done now in such typical cases – but my guess is probably nothing has changed much! Maybe even The Lady may not call at all – because she knows well in advance what she will get in turn! Dog or No Dog! Injured or Not Injured!

Here is to you Sheikh Salim! Allah Rest your soul in Eternal Peace in this world and The Next Ameen – and May Allah SWT Open The Gates for Firdaus The Highest Heavens for you! You are a person who cared not only for Humanity – but also for a distressed woman even if the issue was not your business – but you cared for even The Suffering Dog also.

Addressing this also to my ex Peers and all others – I ask Forgiveness for The Past and let us look and pray for each other for whatever is left now in our lives! You have taken my Yukon I used only 2 years – and still paying – but leaving that to Allah SWT when we meet together and in My Presentation of My Case to Allah SWT!

And to those that could have helped me but chose not to lift a finger and look the other way – May Allah SWT and His Prophets RIP PBUT be with you – Amin Amen!

     

Sheikh Salim with Ali Mandhry and Grandson

Please Help Me Your Majesty! From an Omani Retiree Pensioner!

Please Help Me Your Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said from your Loyal Dedicated Omani Pensioner Retiree Pensioner Majid bin Said bin Nasser Al Sulaimani

majid  hm-sultan-qaboos-1 our-omani-flag  ond-4 ond-5 coma-majid allah

If anybody can help my situation by letting His Majesty know on the situation of a dedicated loyal Omani Retiree Pensioner asked by The Primary Court & HSBC (ex OIB) Bank to pay what he cannot afford to do even if he wanted to.

I am also a sick Diabetic Person with Eyes Problems and was even in Coma State ICU Royal Hospital. Also suffering from Acute Severe Depression bouts – and being also treated by Dr. Abdul Aziz Al Naamani of SQU!

I have only my Pension Retiree Salary and staying in a very old house now only me and my wife left in the house.

There is simply No Money in books as I have been saying all these years!

I tried to send you my first 5 books but I do not know where they had ended?  So were my two letters – one when my Consultancy had gone Bankrupted in 2001!

I feel my Citizen Basic Rights have been infringed as my vehicle they have refused to renew The Mulkiya and it is just parked outside the house.

My Consultancy MMDC collapsed 2001 and only in 2016 they HSBC Oman raised a case against me and truth be said no one had contacted me before.

I tried PDO to help me but they could not! I tried for more than 3 months – only a few days back they said they could not help me!

His Majesty is a Just Ruler with his path to Heavens assured In Shaa Allah by a Special Gate reserved for him.

May Allah Give him long life and health Amin.

Our Religion has so many Chapters on People being in Debt and the mercy and compassion required to be given to them. Even The Hadith.

I feel we should solve our own problems in house rather than go abroad or International Organisations.

I cannot afford to pay this amount unless I become homeless at this old sick age.

Loyal Citizen

Majid bin Said bin Nasser Al Sulaimani

Justice in Islam!

 https://majidall.com/2017/01/20/finding-justice-in-islam/

That Is The Way It Is!

 https://majidall.com/2017/01/17/that-is-the-way-it-still-is/

******

Justice in Islam!

“O My slaves, I have forbidden injustice for Myself and forbade it also for you.  So avoid being unjust to one another.” (Saheeh Muslim)

Thus, justice represents moral rectitude and fairness, since it means things should be where they belong.

 The Importance of Justice!

The Quran, the sacred scripture of Islam, considers justice to be a supreme virtue.

It is a basic objective of Islam to the degree that it stands next in order of priority to belief in God’s exclusive right to worship (Tawheed) and the truth of Muhammad’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) prophethood.  God declares in the Quran:

“God commands justice and fair dealing…” (Quran 16:90)

Prophet Muhammad underscored the importance of rulers being just in one of his famous sayings.

 “There are seven categories of people whom Allah will shelter under His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His. (One will be) a just leader.” (Saheeh Muslim)

******

Be Merciful for Allah SWT to be Merciful to You!

“He who does not show mercy shall see no mercy (from his Lord).”
“Allah is not merciful to him who is not merciful to men.”

Another one of my favourite hadiths because it teaches us to get up and do something:

On the authority of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree (May Allah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say,

“Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]

***

“He who does not show mercy shall see no mercy (from his Lord).”
“Allah is not merciful to him who is not merciful to men.” Quran 2.278

****

O you who have believed, fear Allah and give up what remains [due to you] of interest, if you should be believers. 2.279 

And if you do not, then be informed of a war [against you] from Allah and His Messenger. But if you repent, you may have your principal – [thus] you do no wrong, nor are you wronged. Quran 2.280

And if someone is in hardship, then [let there be] postponement until [a time of] ease. But if you give [from your right as] charity, then it is better for you, if you only knew.

And fear a Day when you will be returned to Allah. Then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will not be treated unjustly.

Front Cover

Book Introduction

After my last book 52 titled All My MAS Books! www.createspace.com/6306051 and the last book on the series Between Us Only! titled Wipe My Tears! www.createspace.com/4304972 – I became very sick and was admitted in Royal Hospital in Oman from November 2015 to January 2016 when I was operated for Prostate Operation – thankfully malign!

I lapsed into a Coma State in ICU – Intensive Care Unit EER – in December 2015 and was there for more than a month!

Unknown to me at the time, there was a Court case placed against me by One International Home Bank against my defunct Consultancy – Management & Marketing Development Consultancy – MMDC – which had collapsed and gone bankrupt in January 2001 – that is 15 years ago – and still being followed and being traumatized to date!

The TRUTH be told also –

SIMPLY NO ONE had contacted me from the Bank or from anyone else!  For Plus 12 years! 

Today I have LOST MY PERSONAL FREEDOM and Civil Status too – sadly to the Most Committed Loyal True Feeling Sincere Citizen and National. My GMC Yukon they refused to renew The Mulkiya which expired since April 2016.

I am just paying The PDCs and if I do not another issue will arise. This Bank has billions to offer Big Cmpanies but they still go to Retired Omani Pensioners with a vengeance drawing blod from stone! Al Hamdu Lillah!

Oman & The World Please Note!

Nothing has changed much in Oman despite all my writings in my columns and books – the columns that ran for more than 15 years before being targeted and killed off in 2013 – on a technicality – but frankly I think more on their designs policing to subdue people speaking The Truth! The games of The Mafias usually run and led by sadly our Indian friends dominating The Media in Oman – and tragically more by our own Omanis – The Old Guards!

The articles in this book are mainly centred on the above aspects as now being denied the public route through my Oman Daily Observer in my columns Between Us Only! and At My Workplace!

I decided to add this book 53 to my series of books – with due apologies to The Reader that the emphasis and concentration in this book was what was happening to me at the time – and to compile the subjects topics under this book 53 – That Is The way It Is!

When people cannot expect justice because you have No Wastah or with being famous and rich – then writing to your own heart and conscience is the only way left!

Al Hamdu Lillah! Hasbiya Allah Wa Naymat Wa Kyll!

 Prophet Nabii Daud David RA Sura Sad 22 – 26.

  1. We made his kingdom strong and gave him Al-Hikmah (Prophethood, etc.) and sound judgement in speech and decision.21. And has the news of the litigants reached you? When they climbed over the wall into (his) Mihrab (a praying place or a private room,).22. When they entered in upon Dawud (David), he was terrified of them, they said: “Fear not! (We are) two litigants, one of whom has wronged the other, therefore judge between us with truth, and treat us not with injustice, and guide us to the Right Way.23. Verily, this my brother (in religion) has ninety nine ewes, while I have (only) one ewe, and he says: “Hand it over to me, and he overpowered me in speech.”24. [Dawud (David)] said (immediately without listening to the opponent): “He has wronged you in demanding your ewe in addition to his ewes. And, verily, many partners oppress one another, except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and they are few.” And Dawud (David) guessed that We have tried him and he sought Forgiveness of his Lord, and he fell down prostrate and turned (to Allah) in repentance.25. So We forgave him that, and verily, for him is a near access to Us, and a good place of (final) return (Paradise).26. O Dawud (David)! Verily! We have placed you as a successor on earth, so judge you between men in truth (and justice) and follow not your desire for it will mislead you from the Path of Allah. Verily! Those who wander astray from the Path of Allah (shall) have a severe torment, because they forgot the Day of Reckoning.Surah Sad – Nabii Daud RA The Holy Quran

****

When You Fail To Get Your Haqq Justice & Rights!

When you fail to get your Haqq Rights and Justice on earth surely on The Day of Reckoning in front of Allah SWT God Al Mighty you will get it there where you need it more and where those responsible from Head of Courts Judges Banks Leadership wii be brought forward for Due Punishment – and could start on earh first then punishments in their graves too. Allah Akbar. Allah Kareem! God is Great!

About The Book!

This book 53nd is The Sequel to my earlier 52 books to date!

After my last book, I was admitted in Royal Hospital for a Prostate operation that ended me falling into a coma state in ICU – Intensive Care Unit – EER – for almost a month! See B – The Prophet’s Dream!

The book ontains all the articles and topics that I had posted in My Websites Blogs and The Social Media since the 52nd book.

The book can also stand on its own to describe all my 52 books to date! 6 books on Arab Management, 3 on Road Safety, 6 on My Autobiography (The Story of My Life!) – 12 on my Columns Writings ‘Between Us Only!’ and ‘At My Workplace!’ and the rest on assorted topics!

  • It is hard to beat a person who never gives up! – Babe Ruth
  • Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you make no money! – Jules Renard

The book is a bird’s eye view on all about all my books and from all my varied articles to date! The books produced here are in main part linked to me as Majid aka as Magic – Magic Man as the pseudonym I used in ‘The Forums’! Also interestingly the article – Why Do They Call You Magic? Also Who Is Majid? And My Epitaph! The articles are also about My Family and My Late Parents – Peace Be Upon Them!

I hope you will like reading about me!

People were always asking me – Why don’t you write a book about yourself and all your books as at one stop centre? The story of your life? All about your books! So people can remember you and your works – and as a Memory and Record for all your works to date!

I then decided to accept the challenge and write this book. Like the other books – I have tried to be as factual as possible – and with my usual style of writing of speaking to you directly from my heart – and to be as sincere, genuine, frank, forthright as possible – so that this book can not only be used in Research works – but as a Guide and Beacon for the children, grandchildren, great grandchildren – and future generations by the Grace of Allah God – Ameen Amen.

Prophetic Supplications for Trials

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “The supplication of my brother Dhun Nun (Yunus, peace be upon him), who called on Allah while in the whale’s belly: ‘There is no deity but You. Glory be to You! Verily, I have been among the wrongdoers’ (Quran 21:87) – no Muslim person says it, for any situation whatsoever, except that Allah Most High answers his call.” [Tirmidhi]

 La ilaha illa Anta, Subhanaka, inni kuntu mina z-zalimin.

لا إلهَ إلا أنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظّالِمِيْنَ

 Being Thankful In Life!

What are you Thankful for in Life!

A         Thanksgiving Day! Thanks for the Blessings!

It is a national holiday celebrated in  Canada and the  United States on the fourth Thursday of November. This time it fell on November 24 2016.

It was originally celebrated as a day of giving thanks by Native Americans for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. The Pilgrims copied it and made it as their own!

Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November  in the United States. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated in a secular manner as well.

Setting aside time to give thanks for one’s blessings, along with holding feasts to celebrate a harvest, are both practices that long predate the European settlement of North America.

The event that Americans commonly call the “First Thanksgiving” was celebrated by the Pilgrims  after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. This feast lasted three days, and—as accounted by attendee Edward Winslow  — it was attended by 90  Native Red Indians Americans and 53 Pilgrims. The New England colonists were accustomed to regularly celebrating “Thanksgivings” — days of prayers thanking God for blessings such as military victory or the end of a drought.

B         Being Thankful In Life!

If you ask me – and truthfully, honestly, frankly and sincerely, I am thankful for a lot of things in life! Although I would some things now more than ever before – like on my personal life and on my health – I am thankful to have –

  • My family and relatives – my children and the grandchildren!
  • The few friends I have!
  • Being a True Observing Muslim to my best of my abilities and following My Religion as best as I Can!
  • And in trying to be near Allah SWT God Almighty as much as I can!
  • Always respecting people devoid of age, sex, religion, creed, race, ethnicity and religion!
  • A roof over my head even if it is a very old house needing much repairs and renovation!
  • Can now walk on my own without assistance like before!
  • The little things I have – even if I wished for more – but I remind myself that there are others far behind me and who would be ready anytime to change places with me!
  • Getting my Pension Salary regularly from PDO – even though I would have wanted it to be more – because every month struggling to make ends meet – like all people – especially Pensioners now!
  • Living in a peaceful stable secure place – after seeing all the things that are going wrong all around us now!
  • My books I have published – which will keep my name going long after I am gone!
  • And so many other things and aspects!

But truthfully, honestly, frankly and sincerely!  I will not want to change myself with anyone! I am happy I came out as Majid (Arabic for Glory!) that I am now!

If I have my life all over again – I want again to be me! The same and only Majid Said Nasser Al Suleimany! Because I know deep in myself that I do care and feel for people! I am full of understanding, empathy, and kindness and caring!  I do not want to hurt or pain anyway. I am I!

I always try to help people as best as I can – and if I cannot will say so politely kindly and emphatically – but I will not lie or tell lies – or say wrong (unkind) things!

If I have made a mistake or error of judgement – I am ready to forgive and forget! Those who hurt and pain me – whether purposefully or unknowingly inadvertently – I will tell them frankly! I will not keep it bottled in – and suffering in silence! I know this part is what makes me unpopular and being resented by others!

I will not want to change myself to anyone other – even if far Richer, Famous and or Powerful! Majid will be Majid always – under Allah SWT God Almighty Grace and Blessings! Ameen Amen

I try hard to avoid conflict and fights – and after 3 or 4 point outs – and still people after me – I come in charging! Like in a bull! Would I want to change this trait and habit – and suffer in silence? The answer is emphatically NO!

This is Me – and This is what I am! Will be till end of time! Majid will remain as Majid!

 

C         My Epitaph!

Majid Epitaph (Legacy) – I Want to be Remembered!

A long time ago as a kid, I used to hear people talk about death and how they will go! I always wondered out aloud how I would go – if my turn came up next!

I always prayed that I would go sudden and people surprised he went away that fast! But I never want to cause trouble and inconveniences to others before I die – if I was to choose these things! But it is all in God Allah hands!

Anyway, I had this dream of ‘dying by starvation’ – I do not know what it meant! Was it going to be real as in the dream – or as a metaphor like liking to eat too much and getting fatter by day – and as now being diabetic case?

Or would it be like my late Father PBUH where he wanted food and water but was denied by The Doctors (they were using instead drips!) – because they needed to operate on his stomach – because there was a blockage in his small intestines – and till after the operation could be given food!

Anyway only God Allah SWT Knows these things best!

Sorry for a morbid subject!

Here lies a person who in all his life had acted and stood up for the rights of others – and to whatever extent and even harm and injury and damage to himself personally – and he went down that way!

Always wanting to do good things and help others as much as one could.

If he could not, he would be Truthful and offer instead kind words and support – and or offer advices to his best level always!

Where he could change things himself he did – otherwise he spoke out for Change. Always wanted to be fair, just, professional, principled, correct and ethical in all things he did.

He wants to be remembered that way only!

Please Pray for Him – when they tell you he is gone!

Or would it be like my late Father PBUH where he wanted food and water but was denied by The Doctors (they were using instead drips!) – Because they needed to operate on his stomach – because there was a blockage in his small intestines – and till after the operation could be given food!

Anyway only God Almighty Allah SWT Knows these things best!

Sorry for a morbid subject!

Here lies a person who in all his life had acted and stood up for the rights of others – and to whatever extent and even harm and injury and damage to himself personally – and he went down that way!

Always wanting to do good things and help others as much as one could. If he could not, he would be Truthful and offer instead kind words and support – and or offer advices to his best level always!

Where he could change things himself he did – otherwise he spoke out for Change. Always wanted to be fair, just, professional, principled, correct and ethical in all things he did.

A person who was always sincere, genuine and honest – frank, open and forthright who always looked at The Bigger Picture – and never wanted things to go wrong as his main focus and theme in life! Even though many of his efforts were never acknowledged, accepted, recognised and realized – and he became a victim himself in his life, career, and future and with his family too!

He wants to be remembered that way only! Goodbye! Ma Salamaah!

Please Pray for Him – when they tell you he is gone!

About My Late Father – PBUH!

About My Late Father – PBUH!

September 16th 2015

Father

Day before yesterday my granddaughter Sibel was in tantrums because I guess she missed her Mother who had to go to Dubai for a day because of Official Business. Today she was very happy with her Mother’s return – and even hymning Twinkle – Twinkle Little Star! The tune is there – if not the words!

I wondered out aloud and comparing my granddaughter time with our times – because even in the bloody Zanzibar Revolution with killings and atrocities committed against Omani Arabs especially – even outside our street – but we were afraid to express our feelings of acute shock and fears! Afraid that if you said something out of turn – you may end with a slap – even if you were so scared and afraid!

Our children nowadays – and their children too – have more freedom and expression = and show of real emotions – unhindered and unblocked – than we ever dreamt to have! Our times were different to theirs now – Allah God Be Praised.

Our Late Father knew top VIPs in Oman. He rode the same donkey to school. I have written a lot about him in My Books – www.myownmajid.com

He always forbade us of living beyond our means – and taking bribes and corruption! He said to us – Do not disgrace yourself to go to Big Famous People to ask for favours and recognition! Remember your roots as we are just Poor Peoples and with Simply No Wastah or Connections! See the article I wrote on him below!

http://www.majidbooks.com/?tag=show-no-dogs-fear

My grandparents were travelling from Manah Nizwa – place of birth – and as just mere teens to go to Africa. My Father who was just getting into adult hood saw a ‘pretty Omani girl’ – my Elder Mother – and fell in love with her! He refused to go to Zanzibar with my grandparents despite ‘repeated canning and beatings! So in the end they allowed him to get married to her – and they left without him! When his children were 12 (my elder brother) and 10 (my elder sister) respectively only then he went with his family to Tanzania. This was during the turbulent dark days of our Omani history when Omanis left in hordes to look ‘for greener pastures outside’.

Today I had an unpleasant dealing again with The Newspaper where I wrote my columns for 14 years – before The mainly sadly Indian Mafias and The Old Guards abruptly ended my columns – because I was refusing not To Speak The Truth – and pushing the dirt into the already piled up stinking carpet!

With due and sincere apologies!

Al Hamdu Lillah. Allah Is Great!

Best wishes and regards,

Majid Al Suleimany

My Letter to The Oman Daily Observer!

September 17, 2015

On Covering My Books in The Press even if I wrote for them for 14 years before unceremoniously and abruptly ended.

 35A - Front Cover

About My Thirty Five Books!

They covered a Dr Asya Al Bualy who wrote a book about one Fatma Barwani Ninja and the function was opened by HE The Minister of Information of Oman.

The woman was married to one Yusuf Himid who was instrumental in Zanzibar Revolution causing over 50000 Omanis to be killed in Bloody Zanzibar Revolution. Yet her story of the wife novels were opened ceremoniously by our own Minister.

This is My Apology Letter to them and then wrote in Facebook etc about My Late Father. Al Hamdu Lillah

Please accept my apologies for writing to express my dissatisfaction for your book coverage and presentation by HE MOI. It is none of my business and it was sent at a weak moment when our jealousy and envy streak kicked in that I had not received even a quarter of similar treatment with 37 books and even on more important serious topics that the country really needs even in Arab Management  – Road Safety etc.

I have to realise I come from an Arab Omani Interior born poor Father unknown and with no Wastah and my Mother born in Zanzibar even if grandparents are Interior also but went to Africa in their teens.

Please accept my sincere apologies. There is no need to fight these things but simply to accept the status quo that without Wastah you are mere nothing trifle unfortunately now in our country as it is.

Please carry on the good works!

Ma Salaamah! You will not hear from me ever again.  Byeee!

alhamdulillah[1]

SHOW NO FEAR – DOGS WILL NOT HEAR.

OR SHOW NO DOGS FEAR.

Show No Dogs Fear!

DOG-300x207[1]

Show No Dogs Fear!

At the age of 8 years old, four decades ago when we were residing in Mafia Island in Tanzania, my father and I met some wild dogs when we were moving about the island. My late father (died 12 years ago – PBUH) cautioned me to hold on to his hand ‘and show no fear, because dogs easily smell fear’.

But if you act brave and show no fear, they either leave you alone or move away’. At first I did not believe this was to be possible, but the dogs did exactly like dad said they would, and left us alone-despite a lot of initial ‘hard’ barking earlier on.

Later on, I used to play with some puppies after getting over my initial fear of dogs. I did not know then that dogs were considered as ‘unclean animals and to be avoided in touch especially’ – because the puppy had followed me to the Masjid (Mosque). Yet I wanted to pray in the congregation – and someone told my late Father – Sheikh Said, your son Majid was playing with the puppies – and yet he wants to pray now with us!

I got such a beating that I have never forgotten it to this day. You cannot blame the puppies – because for them a Masjid looks just like another building from their side – and it is up to you to keep them away – and actually not play with them in the first instance!

At times in life, one meets with a lot of situations like above when you are called upon to make difficult and hard decisions and choices. Life is full of making tough decisions and choices. One option is to do nothing and pretend that the problem is not there, the other is as is being said ‘to catch the bull by its horns’ when you have to act – sometimes fast too!

Sometimes you make decisions in life which at the time may seem right, only to find out later that you should have acted otherwise. Or you leave an option which you think is wrong, only to find out later that it was the better idea and choice. But the saying always holds true-‘those who dare-actually win’! Those who never try, never win’! Or as they say – the birds fly – because they know they can – or you you can never know how far you can go; till you have tried first!

Sometimes situations force you to behave in a way that you would not normally behave otherwise. This I had found out recently very difficult to pursue, but in the end I did so despite my own personal first inclinations and feelings – that my sanity, integrity and respects must first come first and foremost – so I quit the place after a long goodbye. I would have eventually been the loser, and those adversaries and those against me from the outset as the winners.

My late father used to advise me from the incident of the dogs. He used to tell me ‘if you show fear, or run away, the dogs like it more- because you are condescending yourself to their own level-and they will chase you for sure’.

My late father used to advise me from the incident of the dogs. He used to tell me ‘if you show fear, or run away, the dogs like it more- because you are condescending yourself to their own level-and they will chase you for sure’.

He also advised us his children – If you are in a dhow (boat) where everyone is One-Eyed – including the Captain – close one eye – otherwise they will come and take out one eye in their fits of envy and jealousy – and you never know because they could blind you completely in their eagerness to take out one eye so you can be like them!

They also say – do not bang your head against brick walls – only you have your head hurt and swollen in the process – and the brick wall is not even touched! You simply cannot remove people’s bias and dim-witted subjective individualistic views – so why try at all!

It is also said by the Romans that those that the gods want to destroy they make them lose their senses – and make them not see, hear or speak too in the process.

So why fight the system and the situation. There is no point or added use or advantage. You become the victim of circumstances by your own hand by showing you are different from others – and for making a stand and for being forthright and firm in your stand – views, focus and determination! Go with the tide – even if all the fish are dead – act dead also!

There are more important things in life than to be listened to and to be heard your case and situation. Even our own Great Prophet PBUH met the same experience from the idol worshippers in Mecca! And the hypocrites that pretended to go on – when they were actually against our Great Prophet PBUH. People destined for doom and destruction cannot be saved – especially when they do not want to be saved – so move along – let it go – let it pass!

The Chinese have this expression that I really like – If you are digging a grave for your enemy; dig two – and keep one for yourself! This saying speaks volumes in itself! Don’t you agree?

There is also this point as in our Religion. Do not ask for any help or favours from human beings – because you lose your standing, respects and esteem by doing so! Ask only your Allah SWT – God Only – because He likes to be asked – and to give!

It then made me convinced that I MUST GO ON NOW before it is too late! Especially for myself – because no one knows how long we shall live (leave?) in this world!

In one of the scenes in The Film – Moses –The Ten Commandments – The Great Prophet (PBUH) is seen to lament why he was chosen to lead his people and was asking God why it was so – and had not left him alone to be just a simple normal person without this heavy burden and load on his shoulders.

In our Islamic Holy Book – The Holy Quraan – in Surat (verse) Ad DhuhaThe Glorious Morning Light – our Great Prophet PBUH is told 3 – Your Guardian Lord Has Not Forsaken You, Nor is He Displeased6 – Did He not find you an Orphan and Give you shelter and care? 7 – He found you wandering And he gave you guidance – 8 – And He found you In need, and made you Independent – 9 – Therefore treat not the orphan with harshness 10 – Nor repulse him who asks (needs) – 11- But the Bounty of The Lord Rehearse and Proclaim!

In this Surat (verse), the vicissitudes of human life are referred to, and a message of hope and consolation is given to man’s soul from God’s past mercies – and he is bidden to pursue the path of goodness and proclaim the bounties of God. It talks about the usual scorn people have of people who come forward to ask for help and assistance – and are ignored – and their losing faith aspects.

It talks about being kind to such people – though helping people is by choice and is most encouraged in Islam. If need be, turning away such needy people has to be done with kindness and gentleness – and not harshness and or ugly cruel cutting approach – because it is the same God that gave you and also facing you – and that needy person who wants help from you now!

One of the people that I greatly admire is Gandhi. On the subject this is what he said – You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. He further said – I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won’t presume to probe into the faults of others.

There is also this expression in Swahili – Anaye kunyima maharagwe, ana kupunguziya ushuuzi! Those who deny you red kidney beans – just deny (reduce) you the gas (farts)..

During this difficult choice, I had, my late father had come to me in my dreams to remind me of this incident (or was it by telepathy?). I am determined to win – with God’s Grace and Blessings I am convinced that I will win Inshallah Amin God Willing. It is not how many times you fall – but how many times you get up – and keep going. I have had many falls in the past – but I got up – and went on.

What The Old Man Had Said!

Written in July 2009!

Father

Image My Late Father PBUH

During these difficult times, I thought it is essential, imperative and fundamentally important to share this one with you today on My Late Father (PBUH).

Hopefully all of us and The Younger Generation can learn from it all – Inshallah! Though admittedly I feel still so empty, vacuum, desolate and despondent that all I had tried to caution, counsel and warn in my books went to waste – and it seemed nobody had read my books at all. Especially A Cry For Help! I had talked about the increasing expectations – and the lack of tolerances and patience – especially amongst the youngsters especially – and how some few misbehaving expatriates would cause a great deal of trouble and havoc here..

My Late Father was not that educated – nor did he speak any good English – but my late Father was the most educated, intelligent, smart, wise and pragmatic person that I ever saw in my life!. Whilst there are many problems Father to Son Relationships – My Father and I were Best Friends to say the least. We could communicate and touch base at the highest levels. I try to do the very same with my children too.

This is an extract about My Late Father (Peace Be Upon Him) and from My Book A Cry For Help! – A.15 – The Oman FM Radio Interview – in June 2007. The Announcer is Mrs. Judith Razaq (JR) and me (MS)

JR – Majid – Who has the greatest influence in your life than anybody else?

MS – I think it is my Father more than anybody else because my Father was straight forward.

He made a lot of friends and he also made a lot of enemies too. Because if somebody had upset him- he never went about a long way to tell him so. My Father sometimes when we invite guests to our house – he is dead now- so Father – Father please Father -Please put the brakes on! He would say – the food is for you – eat it – I am not going to tell you more than once! You are the guests – the food is for you – please eat it. I tell Father – you do not have to tell them these things! You know he is straight forward. And he has been telling us- that you should not be scared or to be afraid!

Always tell the truth even if it may cost you – you must do the right correct same thing. But please do not go for lies and deceptions.

My late Father was particularly against taking loans (interests!) and living beyond our means – or trying to brag and show off in life. He also told us – Do not be deceived you have a rich powerful family, relative or friend – because nobody is going to help you – except yourself and your Lord only! To Him you go for help and salvation – and nobody else – if you want to be happy and live comfortably in this world! Live within your means – and do not overspent – or be stingy in life! Also earn your living honestly and sincerely!

And yes – Do not be jealous and envious of others especially within your own family! Because God does not like this in men. He is The Giver and The Provider – and He decides whom to give (more or less) or not at all. When you become jealous and envious – it means in other words that you are challenging The Lord himself!

Do not ask for kindness, mercies and favours from anyone in this life – except the Lord only! But if somebody came to you for help and assistance – help him – because The Lord favours those who are kind and compassionate to their fellow human beings – and The Lord is particularly angry on those who can help but do not – it is the same Lord who gave you that is denying him – and the Lord is testing you now!

Do not be obstinate and difficult in life – and listen to the advices of your parents and elders. Respect others and their belongings – just as you are doing yours and would not want others to harm yours either. A good Muslim is one who wants the same good things for himself for others to have too! Work hard and diligently for yourself and for your family – and never put all your faith and trust in people – because they can let you down badly and unexpectedly!

My Father ended being just a Grocery Shopkeeper in his life – though he rode the same donkey to school with people who were his peers in becoming great public figures and very rich and powerful elites – from his home village in Hail Al Ghaaf – Quriyaat – and after his parents had moved from Manah in Nizwa!

If we only had listened – To what the Old Man had said!! A great man lived – and went! May Allah God Protect and Preserve us all – Amin… Take Care!

***

Stick Together As One!

As kids, we have read all these stories. Most of us have been told these stories by our parents, grandparents or have read them in school too!! How come we conveniently have forgotten all these now?

This is the story of the Father laying on his deathbed and calling his children around him. Then he gives each child a stick and asks them to break the stick in two. Each one of them is able to do that. Then he takes all the sticks and ties them up in a bundle. He then asks each child to do the same. None of them are able to break up the bundle.

Each one of them looks in amazement and awe at their dying father and what he is now up to. Then the father cautions – so long as you stick together as one, nothing will ever happen to you in your lives. But if you get out of the bundle and be as a single stick, everyone outside can break you into two. You must always be together and act as one.

Remember this always my children! If you want to bring in drama and heroics in, the father soon dies after saying this. In real life, the father lives a bit longer, before the last breath leaves his body, giving enough time for his children to do their home works and comprehend their father’s teachings

***

He had said – Do not do bad things to others! Especially to someone who considers you as a friend – trusts you – and has simply done nothing wrong to you! Because – What Goes Around; Comes Around! You will be punished in this world itself – before even they bury you in your grave!

Are You A Prawn? A Short Story!

Are You A Prawn?

By Majid Al Suleimany

August 20th 2015

I had posted the below poster in the Social Media and it received unbelievable overwhelming positive responses – and I wished I had received similar at least with my Books Postings at least!

Prawns

A long time ago when my sister was alive – I visited Tanzania on holidays! My late sister PBUH Allah Rahmah had invited me for lunch! Guess what was on the menu –all prawns and lobsters – coconut rice and grilled barbequed lobsters and prawns – and with the coconut curry lobsters! She found me not partaking the food with the zeal she had expected to emanate from me – as she knew that I do like my food!

I told her – My sister you forgot that I do not eat sea food except fish only? She was devastated – and she lamented that she had gone very early in the morning that day to buy the prawns and lobsters that had costed her quite a lot for a widowed at home woman! In the end she ordered for me just plain chicken curry from a nearby restaurant – and I ate with the rice!

Crab

Crab

When I was a student in UK in the early 1970s – there was a Big Students Annual Party thrown up by Shell International – the parent company of Petroleum Development Oman PDO which had sent me for the course in UK! Everybody was enjoying themselves with the lobsters and prawn infested dinner with exception of you know who- who got served separately with chicken legs instead!

At a Departmental party years later – my Top Boss who simply hated me as a person and my guts was boasting loudly – already top drunk – that only ‘poofs and sissies’ he knows do not eat prawns, crabs and lobsters – that were the main menu! So indirectly he may have known that I do not eat these things – and perhaps to make me sad and miserable?

lobster[1]

So from that day onwards, I always gave an excuse not to attend any more parties from his side! Ironically – and what they say – what goes around; comes around – because many had ‘food poisoning’ from the lobsters I gather – and had to go for treatment at the Medical clinic – except the Host who seemed more protected by the alcohol!

A Big Joke after the weekend in the Offices! I understand that is why Her Majesty The Queen never partakes sea food on her travels abroad!

prawns 2

At this party above – a good Indian friend volunteered an ‘explanation’ as to why I do not eat lobsters etc.! He used reincarnation theology being himself a Hindu person – though top drunk too – that perhaps in my past life I was a lobster – so how can you eat your own kind? That is cannibalism – he asserted! Though I wanted to challenge him if he was sure of ‘lobsters not eating lobsters theory’ – but I thought better of it – and went just quiet! What about ‘big lobsters’ eating ‘smaller ones’? I could Google eat – but who really cares? Certainly not I!

At a family gathering one day my son in law Ali pinned me down to offer a ‘logical explanation’ as to why I ‘do not eat lobsters, prawns and crabs’ – his nickname being Ali The Fisherman! These things upset them more! Despite I do not eat ‘these things’ I do buy and allow them to be cooked for visitors – and guess what the topic will turn to when I do not partake the stuff – every time even if they have heard of it before! So I sarcastically and cynically retort – finish the dinner – and I will tell you why! Oh – they say in disgust – because they have heard of it before!

If you like lobsters, prawns and crabs – may I suggest you do not read The Addendum? J !

But frankly – it is true the poster that – Some people are like prawns! No guts, no spine and a head full of shit! But market value is always high! (Or are proud and conceited! Like I always say after the Offices environments – it is in Families where people most misbehave and conduct themselves badly! And behave just like prawns!

I hope you have enjoyed the article. If you have – please let The Chief Editor and The CEO of Oman Daily Observer – observerfeatures@gmail.com – editorobserver@gmail.com – know that ‘you miss my Columns – Between Us Only! That used to run every Sunday and Wednesday before being abruptly ended more than 2 years ago- when I criticised The Egyptian Army murdering in cold blood their own peoples demonstrating for reinstalling Morsi as elected President of Egypt! And the support they got from some GCC countries! I am not Egyptian – nor Pro or Anti Morsi- but a human being observing my faith and as with human feelings and concerns!

How many Omanis can write like this? Allah Kareem! God Is Great! Ameen! Amen!

 
Take Care!

Best wishes and regards,

ADDENDUM!

Repeat – Please do not read if you like lobsters, prawns and crabs!

In the island of Mafia aka Chole -100 miles from Dar es Salaam – Commercial Capital of Tanzania – my late Father PBUH Allah Rahmah – he liked sea food like crabs, prawns and lobsters! If you see how they are cooked still alive – you will never eat one again!

So they put these large crabs still alive and deadly – into a big boiling hot pot! They cover the pot with a tin cover and lay a big stone on top of it! You can hear the ‘tap’ tap – tap – tap as they ‘try to get out’ – open the cover please! We are being steamed hot alive here! The taping goes on for a long while – because they have a life of their own!

One day ‘one strong crab’ managed to push the lid and stone away! Our African house boy pushed it back in – and put a larger stone more on the lid! It took more than 5 minutes of incessant tapping to end!

How can you eat  these things – after this? I ask you!

After all, they look so ugly and terrible – like Big Insects! L !

P.S. You were warned not to come here! Have a Smile! Take Care!

One of the famous straits and characteristics that I had in my Career Life were that people could come to me in my Office at any time! In fact some even phoned me at home! Long time after I left some places – people still followed me!

I offered advices, counselling, coaching, mentoring and guidance for free – and charged no one!

  • People that are now very rich peoples with their several companies!
  • These are people that were not sure at the time if they should leave the Company and start their own businesses or not! I told them ‘to go out and try’ – and they can always come back to their old positions – if they did not make it out there! I gave them as a Personal Guarantee being in Human Resources!
  • People that are now General Managers, CEOs, MDs, The Top Guys!
  • Same as above!
  • Some that now that you have to use their titles before you address them in person!
  • Same as above!
  • Families that are now together because of my counselling advising etc. Some are VIPs and very rich peoples too!
  • People from Other Companies that have now too made it!
  • My mainly Arab Management Books now!       www.myownmajid.com Be The Safe Driver!  
  • Frankly I am dead tired – being nice, kind, feeling and good-hearted now!
  • Oh yes! For The Cynics and Sceptics – You can stop to play the violin!
  • www.bethesafedriver.com
  • Majid Al Suleimany!
  • Allah Kareem! God Is Great! Ramadhan Kareem!
  • Even my Road Safety Books were targeted – even if the country has one of the Worst Records of Road Safety and Driving in Oman! But they were targeting all my books – in alone blow –thanks to The Mafias – and the Old Guards!
  • That night the idea of running away for good – or suicide came into my mind!
  • I was at one meeting so down and all alone after a meeting! I came home and took it out on my youngest daughter who poor thing was just asking for a calculator for School – and my family turning against me!
  • Things I said about ‘are still happening to date!
  • But facts and events proved me right – even years later – when I said – several times – I told you so! But it all becomes empty and hollow – wasted time, efforts and energies!
  • With serious personal determents, consequences and repercussions on my Career Life – because I risked being forthright, frank and opinionated – and refused to ‘go with the tide! – ‘Not to rock the boat’ – refuse ‘to push the dirt under the carpet per se! Even if it already was smelling and reeking!
  • Everyone has conveniently forgotten me – some even consider me as nuisance and trouble!
  • Alhamdu Lillah!
  • Something will give in – soon!Majid Al Suleimany!www.myownmajid.com Be The Safe Driver!

     Oh yes! For The Cynics and Sceptics – You can stop to play the violin!

     Frankly I am dead tired – being nice, kind, feeling and good-hearted now!

    Something will give in – soon! Mark my words! Again!

Are You Fasting This Ramadhan?

Are You Fasting This Ramadhan?

Did you pass the examination?

 June 23, 2015

The Real Test of Time!

Ramadan 1 Ramadan 2 Ramadan 3

 I do not know about you, but it has happened to me! I have gone to these Academic Examinations where I thought the exam was quite easy – and had even left before the last half hour where exits are no longer allowed! The results at the end where quite shocking! I have also gone to exams where I thought I had failed! Only to find surprisingly that I just managed through a Pass mark! I was so sure I had failed and was already studying for a reseat exam! This was in Physics – which I really hated!

You see I became and am an Arts Student – and as I was not good in Science Subjects – especially in Physics and Mathematics! In one famous Chemistry exam, I had failed badly – because I did not read the instructions carefully before attempting the examination! The instructions were to choose one question each from Sections A to C – and guess what I did! I thought it said only one question from A or B or C – and I failed the examinations badly!

Now the Holy Month of Ramadhan is just like a Test to me! If you do not follow the instructions to the test you can fail badly! Like backbiting someone – talking bad things about people – cause trouble strife and mischief and in sowing arguments, discords, splits and division amongst people! Or just looking at things from your angle – and do not care or bother about the rest! Even in the Holy Fasting Month of Ramadhan!

Now we come to the Ten Thousand Dollars Question! Those of us fasting yet suffering from sickness like Diabetic (2) etc. You just end up just wasting your efforts and time – because your Fast will not be accepted – and is like going hungry and thirsty for 15 hours – wasted efforts and energies! You might as well had eaten and drank – instead of fasting! Failed in your Ramadhan Exams! Miserably!

To The VIP Guest! My Sincere Heartfelt Apologies!

 I was at one time long time ago at a Religious Scholar house! So I gleefully told him – he was aghast! Only 9 days left for Ramadhan! He scolded me point blank – Ramadhan is a VIP Holy Guest – and you do not show him signs of tiredness and fatigue – of not welcoming him – and wanting him to go!

I started fasting at 8 years old! It was a difficult time! When I saw my late Grandfather cry ‘because Ramadhan was going – and he was not sure if he will fast next time – he had Parkinson and was also a Diabetic! – as a child I thought this weird! Because as a child I wanted it go – as fast as it could! And even as an adult repeated in front of The Sheikh! He said sternly to me – if you talk to Ramadhan like this – as if he was a person! You will make him feel not welcome – and not wanted! No one has forced you to fast!

So I told him I was Acute Diabetic case! He did not accept my explanation – The Religion is clear – if you cannot fast for a valid medical reason – then do not fast! Last year my glucose count went to 3 – so I broke fast 6 days in the month!

 So far going strong – and I hope and pray for the best! And Oh Yes – to pass the examinations too!

 Allah God Always Direct us all to the Right Path and Way – Ameen!

 Ramadhan Kareem!

 Best wishes and Regards,

Dear Ustaadh Majid!

I was going through my emails and trying to delete some of the mail in order to make space for my Gmail Hotmail and Yahoo as my own websites emails have 10 GB of mail each and I have used only 5% last 5 years.

I found this email from a girl who had died in a nasty road accident with 8 members of her family in Al Mahda returning on Eid Day from UAE few years ago. As you might know, I wrote the book Being The Safe Driver! Behind The Wheel!  after this horrible accident. I was a HR Consultant at her place of work then!

Dear Ustaadh Majid

After Greetings Compliments,

I was very happy to see you today in the Office and your present to me of the book Short Takes! I cried in my heart that you mentioned me in the book as the inspiration of your new book and that you followed my advice to add images to this book.

Ustaadh Majid. I am younger person to advise you! But I want to let you know that please do not allow anyone to make you feel sad and so small and insignificant. These people are really jealous of you and want to be like you in life but cannot be. They cannot even write a page let alone a book and you have written so many books already. You are a really good kind feeling person who always are helpful to people in need of a kind word support or advice. Everyone knows this Ustaadh!

Dear Majid Sir,

Please keep your head always high and we are all proud of you and knowing you. Be proud of what you are and have been and will always be, which they cannot and do not have! And please keep away from these bad people because they are enjoying to see that you are sad hurting and feeling low. We will always pray for you because Right and Good Always win in the ultimate end.

RAW – Unquote.

Quite a nice way to start 2015 New Year! Don’t you think so?

Happy Peaceful Safe Prosperous Happy and Enjoyable New Year 2015!

Best wishes and regards,

Majid Al Suleimany
