Why A Cry For Help! Book Was Written?

A Cry For Help! Book!

Why was the book written?

I wrote on these issues from even March 2003 in my columns Between Us Only! in The Oman Daily Observer!

My Second Arab Management Book published in August 2009 was even titled A Cry For Help!

A few days back, I was at this social gathering party and next to me was seated this Omani Elderly Man. He was eating by his hands .. whilst I was using a fork and knife.!

As normal, the fork being on my left hand he raised a strong comment to me for using the fork and knife – specifically telling me that the food you are putting in your mouth is – HARAAM FOOD!

That is not Halal Food Kosher .. Illegal Forbidden!

I do not even know the person – but his outlooks and focus was it was okay to invade my space and privacy as he felt it right in doing so! Being so forward and confronting! So patronising!

Even if in a way he could be right but there are better ways and styles to communicate your ideas .. to a person that you hardly know!

My upbringing culture and heritage of respecting people older to me kicked in .. and to ‘make peace’ – I decided to use only the fork with my Right Hand!

That was still not enough to him by his continued stare – which was very embarrassing to me!
Because I was now using a sharp pointed tool to put food in my mouth.

My host who was seated next to me tried to intervene and calm things .. but the person was not to be calmed down!

I was tempted to put him in his place but resisted the temptation. He wanted me to be like him – to use my hands to eat the food!

There were many Omanis there too who were using their hands to eat the food like him – with exception of a few like me using fork and knife to eat the food!

I have no issues to use my hands – but usually in Social places I tend to use fork and knife!

He still made some illogical unkempt untoward words – which I had just ignored him – turning to my host in talking!

There are so many elements now especially the so-called New Born Muslims who are increasingly intolerant critical and extreme in outlooks and focuses – which are not wanted or good things in the Society now!

I believe always in being tolerant and live and let live!

We see now increasing criticisms of Christmas and the related functions – things that were not there before!

Book Writing? QED!

Allah Protect and Preserve us all Ameen! Amen!

  

 

 

Trials of Life – Do Not Give Up!

Trials of Life! Do Not Give Up!

My Late Mother PBUH and My Father PBUH Dream!

My Most Vivid Dream!

Asalaam Aleikum!

Yesterday I had a very tearful crying weepy dream of my late Father and Mother Allah Rahimuun!

Before the Zanzibar Bloody Revolution 12 January 1964 I was chosen to go to Form 1 Standard Nine in King George The Sixth 6 Secondary School in Zanzibar! The announcement was made on Friday January 10 1964 – and 2 days later The First African Ethnic Cleansing Bloody Revolution came!

My name was removed because they thought I was Royal Family because my number was 102 and I just used Majid Said as my name!

Later on in March I returned to Mafia Island Chole Tanzania to my old school Aga Khan School where I had to repeat Class 8 because Tanganyika did not recognise I had passed on to Secondary School in Zanzibar.
My Headmaster P S Rangar Singh told me he had tried hard but can only be alllowed to repeat Class 8 despite syllabus being different to Zanzibar.

I was reluctant to repeat Class 8 but in the end had to just give up!

On the day I went back to class 8 – I had cried very much and my heart was broken! My Mother Allah Rahmah hugged me crying with me!had  I was surprised that even my Father cried too in his own way!

Next day I started to repeat my class 8 in Mafia. Al Hamdu Lillah with flying colours – I had passed my Final Exams and went to Form 1 in Dar es Salaam – Commercial Capital of Tanzania!

The rest is history!

Yesterday night Subhanna Allah was Repeat Scene of that night of my crying!

I do not know what dreams really mean – but just to say Al Hamdu Lillah!

AL HAMDU LILLAH!

Badilisha Maisha – Jifikiriye Binafsi!

Badilisha Maisha – Jifikiriye na Kuwa Binafsi Badala Yake!

Translated from English – Be Selfish For A Change! Swahili!

December 15, 2018!

Kama miaka mingi iliopita nilipofanyiwa Operation Royal Hospital hapa Muscat Oman – sijuwi kwa ajili ya Operation au kwa ajili ya huzuni na matokeo baada ya operation – nilikuwa juu ya kitanda nalia sana kwa kikukuwi!

Huyu Daktari N wa KiOmani wa Kikee akaniuuliza – Baba unaliya kwa ajili ya nini? Wewe ni mtu mzima na haifai kulia hivi – unafanya uchura haifai! Nini kimetokeya? Na khasa jana tu umefanyiwa operation kubwa nah ii kulia itakuleteya aathiir na matokezi sio mazuri badala yake!

Nikamwambiya sasa ni saa 11.30 jioni (5,30 pm) na imebaki nusu saa tu watu kuruhusiwa kuingiya kutembeleya Wagonjwa – na mpaka sasa hajaja mtu kuja kunitizama!

Akanihujumu na kunishauri kwa sauti kali – Ni hilo tu? Na unaliya kwa ajili ya hayo? Kumbuka katika Maisha siku zote uwe na ufanye hivi – ikiwa watu watakuja au hata hawata kuja!

Wa Kwanza ni Majid – Wewe!
Wa Pili ni Majid – Wewe!
Wa Tatu ni Majid – Wewe!
Wa Nne ni Majid – Wewe!
Wa Tano Watoto wako Family yako Mke (na Wajukuu!)

Waliobaki katika Maisha yako waache wajipange mstari queue wenyewe – usiwapuuze lakini pia usiwa unawajaali sana kufikiya lengo la kujiuumiza nafsi yako!

Kumbuka haya siku zote!

Kuwa Binafsi badala yake! (Yaani piga moyo konde!)

Unaonesha kuwa ni mtu anayejaali watu wengi sana – na hata kujiuumiza na kujidhuru nafsi yako!
Hawa watu hawastaahili kufikiriwa hivi na wewe kuanzia sasa!

Samahani lakini pia! Mimi nimesha kuona kuwa ni mtu mzuri mkarimu na daima una wafikiriya watu – lakini Duniya sasa imebadilika sana – hamna Imaani Taqwa Ihsaani na Wema!

Samahani kwa Kiswahili – miaka mingi tangu kuandika kwa Kiswahili!

AL HAMDU LILLAH!!

Be Selfish For A Change!

Be Selfish For A Change!

December 15, 2018

A long time ago when I had an operation in Royal Hospital – and maybe post operations depression and trauma – I was crying profusely !

This nice Omani Lady Doctor asked me what is your problem .. why are you a Senior Person by age crying? You just had come out from a major operation .. it is harmful and not good for you!

So I told her .. it is now 5.30 pm and only half an hour left for Visiting time .. and no one had yet come to visit me for this day .. despite my operation was only yesterday!

She cautioned me and told me – Be like this!
Now in your life –

First is – Majid
Second is – Majid
Third is – Majid
Fourth is – Majid

Fifth – Is your Direct Family .. Wife and Children of your own!

The rest in your life can make their own fore line queue .. Be less bothered about them .. they came or did not come!

Be Selfish for a Change – Just Care Only For Yourself!

You seem to care for a lot of people – who do not deserve your care and attention!

Al Hamdu Lillah
