When Death Just Calls!
August 31, 2017
This week there have been 3 deaths of Omani Retirees and Pensioners – 2 from ex PDO Petroleum Development Oman – and 1 from ex Central Bank/BankMuscat! The first one as I wrote about here – https://majidall.com/2017/08/15/obituary-biography-late-sheikh-salim-mohamed-al-maawali-mauly/

I do not know about you but for me when I hear of someone I know has died is to go on an overdrive view of looking at that person and interfacing and interacting with me – or what they call as ‘Helicopter’ view of looking the person from above and what he or she has been to me in my life!
Many a times I come to Acceptance level of knowing someone I know has now died – and will no longer be with us anymore! I come to Acceptance Terms as I will have to Forgive him and what he has done to me – or not done to me despite my desperate appeals and requests which went ignored and unheeded – whilst he looked the other way – or pretended not to hear or see me – looking the other way! The worst kind are those who will add ‘salt to the wound’ by passing crude rude inept remarks about you ‘as why he is ignoring you’ – even sometimes right into your own face! So you get hurt both by the rejection and the unneeded words to you in addition!
Then there are few who will actually come out to help as best as they can or offer good kind words in advices and counsels – and even material help and prayers for you! There are also the few who have made your life a misery by all the time conspiring and scheming plots against you personally in your career and work life – and are always negative injurious to you in front of others! Sometimes even with earshot!

Mohamed Saif Al Jabri
He was more a friend to my brother Mohamed though we worked in the same Department until I opted for Early Retirement! He was always joking teasing type of person – always laughing! Sometimes he laughed more on his own jokes than anybody else!
Like in most peers we had our differences and one thing he told me stuck to me till now – that you cannot go in business because you Majid are a nice trying to please help others – and in business you had to be crooked and cruel hard with no ‘mercy or compassion’! This when we were discussing going into business in Import Export from Tanzania – and you needed to be ready to ‘give in bribery and corruption’- and in PDO you are well known by The Mafias then THAT MR. CLEAN!
Here is to you Brother Mohamed! 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 your friends but almost everyone!
I will always remember you for stopping me taking My Full PDO Pension but opt instead for lump sum and Monthly Pension! As per your advice on business by me – today I would not have survived in this world and life without my PDO Pension – though it is like just a snack to me now but people with big trays of Biriyani also want to take and eat my sandwich also!
Sometimes I would advise him not to do certain errors of judgement – but he would be defensive and angry – but the good thing about him was he would later relent and come back to show his objectivity by saying only friends can advise you even if you are angry with them!
Humanity, Kindness and Care – Key Words for Late Mohamed! RIP! Plus Laughter and Smiles!
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!

Death! What I Had Said Before!! Generally Speaking!
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)! Some people find it hard to forgive – especially blatant injustices and crimes committed against others – especially from those who relied and trusted you in the first instance!
Sometimes even if people wish to forgive and forget it will take them a long time and efforts to do so because of the volume and largeness of the Injustices Dhuloom done to others! You will go empty handed as you came into this 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! People need to realise and appreciate their responsibilities much more with ethics, principles and professionalism! Remember that there is punishment on earth for you – in the grave in your funeral and on The Day of Reckoning!
Try to change now – before it is too late for you! We are living on borrowed time – whilst at any minute it can be snatched from you abruptly with little or no notice at all!
