Goodbye; My Very Good Friend and Brother! Sheikh Seif Al Harrasi!

Goodbye My Very Good Friend; Sheikh Seif!

Sheikh Seif Salim Issa Al Harrasi!

Friday March 22, 2019

 

Normally at around 10 pm each night, I simply switch off my phone from Sound to Just Silence as I usually get disturbed a lot by phone calls from my Books Publishers in USA and Amazon – as for them it is still working hours! Sometimes the calls come from Singapore and UK also more!

It is very disturbing when the phone rings and you have an Oxygen Mask on to get your sleep! I was about to do that again for this night when several WhatsApp messages started to come in my mobile phone saying that my very good friend and brother Sheikh Seif Salim Issa Al Harrasi had passed away whilst undergoing Medical Treatment in UK.

It was last September 2018 when I had met Marehem Sheikh Seif Al Harrasi at Muscat International Airport as we were in the same flight to go to Zanzibar! He was very much perturbed, concerned and disturbed to see me in a wheel chair – as being handled for my flight trip – as I could not climb the steps of the plane in boarding! What happened to you Dear Sheikh Majid – he lamented!

So we got talking about the good days in PDO and as I was explaining to him about my holidays trip to Zanzibar with Madam Wife! He asked me which hotel I had booked into because as usual hospitable kind person that he always was – he wanted to invite me for a few days stay in his villa in Bweni I think!

I remarked to him that he looked sort of worried and sickly – and he calmly told me we shall talk afterwards my good friend! It was only later in the plane we were in Business Class and he was in Economy that I dared to joke with him ‘to spend some more money to enjoy’ joke! He handled the slur very well with his great sense of mirth fun and joke saying why should he and ‘you do need the bigger seat’ in Business Class – whilst I do not!

Another person who does not have his traits and senses of humour could have put me in my place – but he was an exceptional human being first class high profile person the world is proud to have in a human being! One time he called me and I was not sure who he was and he was suggesting to me a business contact when my Management Consultancy MMDC was operating! Yes that is another trait of his to assist and help other unasked unassisted! So he repeated a nickname that would have identified him – joking – Guess that will make you happier – and remember who I was!

I asked for his apology but he just pushed the subject away – what is a joke and tease amongst brothers and friends! I noticed him only once when I was in HR when an Expatriate was misbehaving in his Department – and even here he was more remedial corrective rather than accusing and abusing!

A few days in Zanzibar, he had sent me a WhatsApp message saying he was returning to Oman because he was very sick! He wished me well and to enjoy my holidays and try to be careful on certain issues and things that many visiting the islands are not aware of – and we become naïve and trusting and we think we know everything and do not need to be told or to be reminded of!

In Zanzibar he had built a nice beautiful villa at the coastline – and he had appeared in The Oman Ramadhan Television Programmes a few years ago – where he featured centrally and immensely – explaining the beautiful historical relationships between Oman and Zanzibar!

I am sure that there are many also in Zanzibar who will be crying a lot today on hearing his death – his deep ties and commitment to help and assist those lesser advantaged – especially by his kindness and generosity to the local populace! Especially in Religious Affairs and in The Holy Month of Fasting of Ramadhan! Pray that his kin will continue with his good works In Shaa Allah Yaa Rabbi!

A Great Man Has Come – And Now He Is Gone! But we will always remember and pray for you – Our Very Good Friend and Brother!

May Allah SWT Remove The Punishment of The Grave for you – May Allah SWT Open The Highest Heavens of Firdaus For You – May you rest in eternal peace in this world and the next Ameen! May Allah Give Sabrah Patience and Imaan to your Family Ameen!

Till we meet again In Shaa Allah – Goodbye My Brother and Best Friend!

Why do they call you ‘Magic’?

Why do they call you Magic?

January 18th 2019

A         

When I was studying in UK in the 1970s, there were some British girls in my class! They found it strange that I was not following them like the other foreign students in my class! It had nothing to do with British girls or not, but I was always a Loner and keeping to myself alone!

You can feel hungry always, and look at the Menu! But ordering the food can be something quite different! You can also see smell the food – but partaking it can be quite something different! Excuse the pun – and the rhetoric here!

Anyway, the braver of the girls (and the more forward! Sic!) asked me lots of curious strange questions – like how many oil wells your family owned? Or how many wives your father had? And even the brazen one – how many wives you had? As if I was already married for that matter! But the more smarter ones for sure were those who noticed I did not wear any rings – and probably, therefore, a good catch!

There were some for sure who thought I was weird – and something fishy and weird for that matter! Thank God that some dared not ask me what was in their minds – because I would not have known what answer to give – or how I would have reacted to such probing intrusive personal questions!

So the conversation and questioning went on something like this!

Let us call her Amanda – actually there was a girl by that name – and she was really pretty tall and all the ‘catching stuff’ per se!

Amanda – Hi! What is your name?
Me (sigh) – Majid!
Amanda – What???
Me – Majid – Spell – M A J I D!
Amanda – What??? Oh! What does the name mean?
Me – It means Glory in English!
Amanda – Oh! So you are Glory? You do not look like one! Sorry!
Me – (Quiet) – I was about to give a crude reply like – call me whatever name you like stuff! Sort of think! Sic!
Amanda – You know what? Cannot comprehend that name! Difficult! What else can we call you?
Me – (Quiet!)
Amanda – now joined with the other girls! You know what? We shall just call you Magic!

Magic it had always remained – till the last day of the College!

End.

Now you know why I ended as Magic! Magic it has always been – at lease nearer to Majid than any other English word to my name!

(* Apologies to those who had thought perhaps deeper more sinister meaning of Magic than the crystal clearer one above!)

* Magic Man was also used!

****

B           My paternal grandmother – Seyyida Saluma bin Ahmed Al Wadhahiya!

I always used to ask my late Father Sheikh Said – PBUH Allah Rahmah – how he felt when his Mother – my paternal grandmother – was married to someone else after asking for her divorce – when my Grandfather Sheikh Nasser Zahor Al Suleimany – Manah – Nizwa – PNUH Allah Rahmah – went to Africa from Oman – staying there for too long whilst he married other women – leaving grandmother alone for a long time!

The great lady got only one other son – my Ami Uncle Sheikh Ahmed Salim Al Wadhahy (still living!)
So I used to ask my Later Father Allah Rahmah – when he was alive – how do you feel about your only brother – Mother side?

He looks at me weirdly – but avoids telling me what is really in his mind – till one day in his better moods tells me – I do not blame my Mother – but more my Mother!

****

C          ** My Maternal Grandfather – Sheikh Hamed Zahor Al Suleimany!

Full story in my Book Psychology of Arab Management Thinking!
But briefly – my Mother had also only one brother from her Father side this time!
Poor man – ** he never married again after my mother – but my grandmother surely did!

****

Frankly, I like both – but B more compared to C!

So in short we are such a unique family – at least you can call us as that!

After Compliments & Dear All;

The 55th Anniversary of The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution!

Celebrating the First Murderous Ethnic Cleansing in Africa!

Against a duly elected Government under the so-called British Colonialists Protectors!

The Bloody Massacres of Fellow (Arab Asians) Muslims by Africans mainly supported by (few) Christian as led and behind the scene supporters – both local and external including Zionists and Western – and others!

So sad and tragic!

********************

Today 12th January, 2019  is the 55th Anniversary of the Bloody Zanzibar Revolution that saw the massacres of mainly Omani Arab Asians in Zanzibar and the violent overthrow of duly elected establishment by democratic election means – even if there were gross mistakes and miscalculations by that Government during its short period of existence!

Writing The Book!

I am on my way writing my 56th Book entitled Return To Lost Paradise! This is after my recent visit to Zanzibar in August 2018 and my only second visit after The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution of January 12 1964!

The Later Part of The Book will be about The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution – its impacts, consequences and The Aftermath – and my Observations from my visit and what I saw in Zanzibar inter alia the following –

• The Zanzibari (African/Muslim) Taxi Driver showing us an area saying to us – This is where the Arabs Live now – an area where Arabs (Omanis) have come back to build new villas and many staying there after Retirement and or Businesses Closures! He has just forgotten that his passengers were Arabs (Omanis) in his emotions showing you the place!
• The Hotel Staff – mainly Christian Mainlanders – who can be ‘friendly normal people’ because you respect them and perhaps some may say cynically ‘because you tipped them right!’
• Some of the Zanzibaris Africans admitting ‘they survive on handouts from the same people we killed in 1964 – who now make our lives more easier and comfortable – especially during the Holy Month of Ramadhan Fasting!
• Arabs who have contributed to The Development and Expansion of Zanzibar – like the Hotel Verde Resort – The Bakhressa Group of Companies!
• Omani Entrepreneurs doing preferred business in Zanzibar despite all odds – like incompetence, maladministration, bribery. Corruption, lack of trust and faith – and the likes!
• Despite The President Orders – people still ask for tips – not only insinuate – but actual ask – including The Traffic Cop – who asked me – Are we going to talk or not?
I value my life and freedom – so Í talked’- the first time in my life anyway to a person in uniform! I have seen videos of repercussions – and did not want to make myself a victim of Viral Video!
• Army Practising (New Recruits) harassing an Arab Lady who took photograph of them in practise – but were smiling cheerful to Europeans Ladies – even trying to look pretty on the pictures!
• That is the same way as it is said – The British et al did not Protect The Rest of us at and during The Bloody Revolution! The First Ethnic Cleansing in Africa!
• The Visiting so many Arab Delegations from Oman and Other Countries!
• Those so-called Arab Socialists – Comrades – Communist Socialism Sympathisers who all went to live abroad – especially in UK – the same place that The Zanzibar Ruler now also lives – what a coincidence! Or Karma does work?
• Taking a theme focus outlook to try to repair modify adjust etc. based on Nelson Mandela’s South African Reconciliation between Africans and Whites!
• Majority of Zanzibar peoples are Muslims – and to bring in people together as Muslims – and to look forward in The Future – rather than The Past – where mistakes lay on both sides – and stemming from My Book – Psychology of Arab Management Thinking! – which won The USA Gold Seal of Literary Excellence USA Review of Books – Amazon USA.
• Arabs building Masjids and Islamic Quran Learning Centres – despite some even whose families were killed, harassed etc. in The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution!

Zanzibar Hospitality sector being dominated by mainly Mainlanders and Christian – fewer Zanzibar grown!

Backpack (White) Tourists after Zanzibar men (including Masai – I saw even a Masai women in a possible three tie-up!

Housemaids etc. being appointed for the jobs in Oman GCC in the very same stock houses that were killed in cold blood!

The eBook – Revolution in Zanzibar – by John Okello!

As I had always thought the Africans and not even The Comrades alone planned the bloody Revolution but greater forces at play of our so called British Protectors but more some hidden elements who led behind the scene all the toppling of a legitimate government even if badly managed and focussed.

The book reveals it very clearly .. QED

I stopped reading the book at page 119 when he damns indicts himself by saying

I felt that many of the Zanzibar Africans could not be trusted since they were strongly connected with, and even related to the Arabs on the island and might well be spies and preparing to reveal our plans in order to get permission from the Arab Commanding Officers.

He then authorises to KILL ALL ARABS from age 18 to 55

In the end All Arabs sighted were killed … and women rapped ..killed with their babies born or still not born

He prophesies what will happen to him after the Revolution … but sadly he did not do so when he joked to Iddi Amin consorts that Uganda had now two Field Marshalls … his own epitaph of the lies he webs!

Anyway let the Zanzibari people wake up to the realities of the first ethnic cleansing in Africa .. the massacres and cold blooded killings?

Was the Revolution a success? Certainly not now with CUF and the desire to secede and to separate.

And disenchantments and disfranchisements even amongst the Strongest Supporters – internally and externally – and even behind the scenes to this very day!

Added Note!

The Western Media were more apologetic thinking it will curb Arabism and Islamic influence – it ended with the country turning extreme Socialist (Communist!) under a so-called Christian Catholic President (Union) – and the visit of Chou En Lai The Chinese Communist Regime leader to the islands – and Cubans and Che Guevara!

The LOSERS were everyone – including behind the scenes supporters of violent overthrow of a democratically elected Government under the so-called British Protectorate! And constitutional Sultan being Arab! So sad and tragic!

Islamic Projects (Sadaqa Jariya!) Requiring Financial Support and Assistance in Tanzania!

Sadaq Jariya Islamic Projects Requiring Financial Support and Assistance in Tanzania!

Asalaam Aleikum & After Compliments;

The Sadaqa Projects: –

• Building New Masjids (Mosques) in Locations Grown Up – where there are none now! People have to travel some distances for Congregational Prayers!
• Water Wells (Kisima) where water is a dire need and requirement – as above!
• Renovating Derelict Need to repair renovate Old Masjids!
• Similarly for Water Wells Repairs and Renovations!
• The Holy Quraan Teaching Centres – Islam is growing up rapidly and increasingly as people turn (return) to growing populations in Islam and Converts to Islam! Especially for their children!

• Small to Medium Social Projects!

Including caring and looking after Orphans (abandoned children) their care look after and education etc.

The Islamic Hadith tells us all on the Benefits and The Rewards of Sadaqa Jariya (Social Contributions) – like getting 7 grains for one planted! The Left Hand should not know what the Right Hand gives etc. Build a Masjid now – and get one palace for you in Jannat (Firdauus)!

Giving Sadaqa Jariya is not only for the rich – but even one who has example spare (can save!) OMR 50 Rials -and can contribute 20!

You can follow all these in The (Recognised) Islamic Sites and Google!

Build up your case and defence for The Day of Reckoning and Avoid the Punishment of the Grave!

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!

See Books Link – 

A Cry For Help! Book Review – The Oman Daily Observer!

More at http://www.myownmajid.com

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!
