The Xmas New Year Greetings Controversies!

Lately I have been receiving a lot of What’sUp Messages asking Muslims not to participate in The Above Season Greetings.

Some are extremely critical (even political)!

Personally I am a person who sincerely believes in Live and Let Live – and each one to his own!

I get Eid Greetings from people who Do Not Celebrate Eid. I see No Problem to reciprocate within limits of people of the world living together in peace patience harmony love tolerance and understanding – and that is part and parcel of our Omani Values – Culture Heritage Traditions and Customs – and relationships with others at home abroad and the world – enshrined by The Renaissance under HM Sultan Qaboos bin Said – Allah SWT Give him lng life and health well being Ameen.

This is what was My Preface in my Book – A Cry For Help! published in 2008 – I rest my case!

Nobody paid attention to me then – worse even now!

I rest My Case! QED.

To Allah we belong – and to Allah we all will return – Al Hamdu Lillah!

PREFACE – THE IDEA FORMULATES!

 On March 9th 2009, I, as The Human Resources Manager of one place, issued the following message to all the staff of the Company. It just read, as below:-

 Quote:-

Dear All Staff;

 Subject:- Death of Father of K (An Omani Staff).

I do not have full details yet, but we have just heard that K’s (Omani Staff) Father had expired. It is understood that he was sick for quite some time. More details will be provided when we get them, but for now you have been informed – and we suggest for Male Staff they can offer condolences to the Masjid (Mosque) when details are available.

Please note that the Masjid (Mosque) is open for all religions, faiths, creed and beliefs – and for the ladies when he comes back, unless you are close and know the family well.

We pray to Allah (God) to grant his late Father eternal peace in this world and the next Amin (Amen) – Unquote.

 It was met with an unexpected retort and uproar from some Staff (Omanis mainly) that took offence on the part especially highlighted above. They all called me (not wanting to express their dissatisfaction in writing. It included some who were in Senior Positions too as Managers etc.

I was soon after required of me to issue a retraction remedial and corrective soon afterwards (one hour or less time)

 It just read –

Quote:–

Dear All Staff;

You can also offer your condolences to him directly when he returns next week.

The earlier message was intended to those that may have wanted to visit him at the Mosque (men) and at home (for the ladies) – and perhaps the ‘sensitivities involved’ – if any!

Regards – Unquote.

I had that night contacted one famous Religious Leader that I knew. I asked him for his frank and candid opinion if I did wrong in inviting Non Muslim Staff to come to the Masjid (Mosque) to offer condolences to their Muslim peer, noting that it was his Father and Death will come to us all whether we are Muslims or not, and devoid of Religion, Race, Creed or Sect.

This is how our conversation went – in brief.

QUOTE –

He told me that we have to talk to each other in Islam, and correct, guide, mentor and coach each other on the right correct path. He told me that everyone has a

right to his own views and feelings on the subject – but sometimes we make a mistake to force them on others too. Which is wrong and not correct?

When I issued this Email note, it was based on both me as being as The Human Resources Manager, and also on humanity and compassionate feelings that one of our colleagues had his Father that had passed away. I know the feelings – and I have been there too. Nothing less or more.

He said that this is a very contentious issue, and there is a lot of debate and interpretation of what is the correct and the right one. Your view is one, so is the opposite one which I held. (I told him about our Great Prophet allowing Christian Missionaries passing through Medina at the time and asking for a place for prayer. The Great Prophet (PBUH) had even allowed them to pray in a Mosque (Masjid). So I was not alone in the interpretation of the whole issue.

He advises that in the future I add Muslim Staff can offer condolences at the Mosque etc. In that way I will not offend anyone, which seems to be the default result of my action – though it was sincere, genuine and well intentioned too. I apologise for this, if any offence were taken.

Hopefully there will be no more deaths in Company Staff or relatives in the future, but we both agreed that it was a Learning experiences for us all – UNQOTE.

It then struck me how fast and how much things have now changed in The Work Front – especially in relationships between Omanis (Locals) and Expatriate Staff – especially Non Muslims – and how much the gap was widening between the two – though help pretenses continued of politeness, courtesy and welcome. There was now growing extremism, fundamentalism and radicalisation that I had never seen before – especially in Oman where I had always prided myself that we were a tolerant, moderate, give-and-take, live-and-let-live society and always kind, welcoming and accepting esteeming and respectful to our ‘invited guests’ in our country!

My simple error (if you call it) to invite non-Muslims to the Mosque (Masjid) seemed inadvertently to expose the inevitable differences etc (unwanted and uncalled for and I think unneeded differences to come out and show its ugly head!).

However, two months later I quit the place after being singled out and insulted by Expatriates – a British (inn Email to all copy to all) and albeit the two being one Indian Muslim, and the other Jordanian also Muslim. The CEO = An American – sided with those insulting me as one of The Most Senior Omani in that Company, and it Company being a National Prestigious State of The Art National Project – but operated as if it was not in Oman.

If you have gone through My Management Book (Psychology of Arab Management – Arabian Management Series – available in Oman in Family Bookshops and in Turtles – Magrudy’s in UAE soon – or see www.alsuleimany.com – or see

www.trafford,com/08-0889 on how to order the book), you will note the book was based on events in 2007 and before.

See also The Sequel – Between Us Only – www.trafford.com/08-0890

The work front before this has not changed much – with still some (repeat SOME) Expatriates misbehaving in Oman, out of all places in the world of welcome to guests. See also my Article appended.

This book will have the following themes and focuses

One   – The Growing Radicalisation of Local Staff (Populace)

Two     The Misbehaving Expatriates

Three   – Unhappy Dissatisfied Staff

Four     – Bad treatment of Staff esp. by Indian European Western Staff on Locals

Five      – Increasing extremism fundamentalism etc in Offices as a result perhaps.

Six       – Sensitive issues inter related.

And between the two and the interfaces, where we are heading – especially in the work front and in Society now.

I will appreciate any views on the subject, and will not quote you by name etc in The Preface to my New Book. I have already 60% of the book now ready.

*** Your usual support and co operation most welcome please (in confidence) – UNQUOTE!

 Best Regards,

Majid Al Suleimany

Season Greetings! Happy Prosperous Peaceful New Year 2017

My New Book (54th  – Still That Is The Way It Is!

Book Introduction

54a-front-cover 54b-back-cover 54c-full-cover

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!

 O ye who believe! Be steadfast in the cause of Allah, bearing witness in equity: and let not a people’s enmity incite you to act otherwise than with justice. Be always just, that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah, Surely Allah is aware of what you do – The Holy Quran – Ch. 5 – V 9

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

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

2- “O Allah! There is no ease except that which You make easy, and indeed You, when You want, make difficulties easy.” [Sahih Ibn Hibban]
