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/

See Photo Below!

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!

   

Last Photo Mohamed Saif Al Jabri – PDO

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!

You will find all about the above here at www.majidall.com

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!

Looking for Financial Assistance!

For My Loan Repayment!

For a very Old Loan (16 years!)

In this Holy Month of Ramadhan Fasting!

Ramadhan Mubarak! Ramadhan Kareem!

Arriving at the stage when you feel it is just useless to keep fighting for your case! When Fear just faces you straight on the face – and you simply cannot fight your case anymore – because you know well that no one wants to hear anything from you in your defence – and people have already sided with those against you because they have Money, Power and Wastah – and you do not!

   

Looking for Financial Assistance and Support to help me to pay to the Bank!

My Dear Family, Friends, Brothers, Sisters & The Islamic Ummah & Others!

Ramadhan Mubarak & Ramadhan Kareem!

For an old loan (16 years!) for my defunct Consultancy – and to remove and clear my name from The No Civil Status (Blacklisted) now for almost 18 months – where I cannot travel and or move. With my vehicle Yukon GMC that I am still paying monthly installments the Mulkiya Vehicle Registration not allowed to be renewed! I cannot use my vehicle – and is just parked in front of my villa only!

I am fully aware that the upper hand is better than the lower hand – but trust me I have tried my best not to come to this stage – but all the options that we have tried  have not been successful to date! Any amount that you can afford in this Holy Month of Ramadhan Fasting is most welcome!

Arabs Keep Repeating Their Mistakes! Again and Again!

You can see me now going in The Social Media asking for Financial Help and Assistance from Others!

I sent This Appeal – but nothing has happened – or changed in my favour!

The Whole System is based to side with

  • Those with Money!
  • Those with Power!
  • Those with Authority!
  • Those with Wastah!
  • And NEVER with The Working Citizen/The Poor Citizen /The Pensioner /The Retiree!

We are not afraid of Allah SWT God Our Lord Al Mighty and the –

  • Punishment on Earth!
  • Punishment in our Grave!
  • Punishment on The Day of Reckoning!
  • When you lose all your Good Deeds by Dhuloom Injustices you have done on others!

One by one, The Arab countries are ending in disturbances, civil strife, wars, and civil wars! With what started as a Youth Demonstration – Syria and Libya are still burning! There are wars in Yemen! Etc. Etc.

Will we Arabs learn even if it is too late for us! I do not think so!

Please go through carefully all these links below! If there is anyone out there in The Leadership who care and feel for our Beloved Oman – then this is the time to act now! Before it too is too late for us!

 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.” The Holy Quran 2.278

Whosoever removes a worldly grief from a Believer, Allah will remove from him one of the griefs of the Day of Judgment. Whosoever alleviates [the lot of] a needy person, Allah will alleviate [his lot] in this world and the next. Whosoever shields a Muslim, Allah will shield him in this world and the next. Allah will aid a slave [of His] so long as the slave aids his brother.

“The best charity is that which is practiced by a wealthy person. And start giving first to your dependents.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari] Volume 2, Book 24, Number 507

Narrated Abu Huraira (May Allah be pleased with him):

The Prophet (peace & blessings of Allah be upon him) said“The one who looks after a widow or a poor person is like a Mujahid (warrior) who fights for Allah’s Cause, or like him who performs prayers all the night and fasts all the day.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari] Volume 7, Book 64, Number 265

Pickthall
Establish worship, and pay the poor-due; and whatever of good ye send before (you) for your souls, ye will find it with Allah. Lo! Allah is Seer of what ye do. (2:110)

Sahih International
Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah , the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, and the Prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives Zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous. (2:177)

Pickthall, Muhsin Khan, Saheeh International
The likeness of those who spend their wealth in Allah’s way is as the likeness of a grain which groweth seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains. Allah giveth increase manifold to whom He will. Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing. Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. A kind word with forgiveness is better than almsgiving followed by injury. Allah is Absolute, Clement. O you who have believed, do not invalidate your charities with reminders or injury as does one who spends his wealth [only] to be seen by the people and does not believe in Allah and the Last Day…. (2:261-264, part)

Pickthall
Lo! those who believe and do good works and establish worship and pay the poor-due, their reward is with their Lord and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. (2:277)

Another one of the 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]

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)

The Qur’an warns believers against subjective factors or personal emotions leading them to deviate from the path of justice, which is also the path of Islam, but it weighs heavily upon those who are required to adjudicate in disputes or to give judgment on other issues.

“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: That is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do.” (Al-Maidah: 8)

Muslims are also called upon to rise above social evils such as nepotism and favoritism. Almighty Allah says in the Qur’an,

“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do.” (Al-Nisa: 135)

*****

Oppressing Others!

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (رضي الله عنه) reports that_

_Rasoolullah (صلي الله عليه وسلم) said:_

“Whoever has oppressed another person concerning his reputation/honour or anything else should seek to be absolved by him before [the day when] there will be neither Dinaar nor Dirham _[there will be no money on the day of Qiyaamah to pay for any oppression committed]_

If he [the oppressor] has good deeds, they will be taken from him to balance the injustice he did, and if he does not have any good actions, the bad deeds of [the oppressed] will be loaded onto him.”

*(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2449)*

******

On increasing (Dhulum) your property by Riba Interest!

 The Holy Quran 30.39 Surah AR Ruum

By Pickthall

That which ye give in usury in order that it may increase on (other) people’s property hath no increase with Allah; but that which ye give in charity, seeking Allah’s Countenance, hath increase manifold.

By Yusuf Ali

That which ye lay out for increase through the property of (other) people, will have no increase with Allah: but that which ye lay out for charity, seeking the Countenance of Allah, (will increase): it is these who will get a recompense multiplied.

Arabic

وَمَآ ءَاتَيْتُم مِّن رِّبًا لِّيَرْبُوَا۟ فِىٓ أَمْوَٰلِ ٱلنَّاسِ فَلَا يَرْبُوا۟ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ۖ وَمَآ ءَاتَيْتُم مِّن زَكَوٰةٍ تُرِيدُونَ وَجْهَ ٱللَّهِ فَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُضْعِفُونَ

****

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.

The Art of Forgiving! 1

The Art of Forgiving!

In Memoriam – Late Mohamed Ali Muhsin Al Barwani!

March 13, 2017

The Late Mohamed Ali Muhsin Barwani

Introduction

  • The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. Mahatma Gandhi
  • Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Many times, the decisions we make affect and hurt your closest friends and family the most. I have a lot of regrets in that regard. But God has forgiven me, which I am very thankful for. It has enabled me to forgive myself and move forward one day at a time. Lex Luger
  • We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them. Bruce Lee

 

Very Beautiful Hadith and Forgiveness in Islam

This is truly a beautiful hadith. Very touching.  Many non-Muslims think our religion is too hard and that we view Allah as only to be feared. Whereas, in reality Islam combines an equal amount of Love, Fear, and Hope.  We are only humans so inevitably we will make mistakes and sin from time to time. Often, we tend to despair when we commit a sin. But Alhamdullilah, our forgiveness is only a prayer away. We don’t need any intercessors. We don’t have to pray to anyone else. We have a direct link. Mash’Allah what a beautiful religion…….A Beautiful Way of Life!

On the authority of Anas, who said: I heard the messenger of Allah say:

Allah the Almighty has said: “O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as its.”

To receive forgiveness from God there are three requirements:

  1. Recognizing the offense itself and its admission before God.
  2. Making a commitment not to repeat the offense.
  3. Asking for forgiveness from God.

 

Narration

Last year, when I had Prostate problems and had fallen into a Coma State in ICU Intensive Care Unit Royal Hospital,  the Doctors had already cautioned my family to expect the worst in that out of 10 Coma State in ICU – only 2 people walk out from there! And I was not going to be amongst that list! Unknown to me at the same time this Bank had placed a Court Case against me for my Consultancy that went bankrupted 16 years ago!

It was said that I was contacted – which was strange as I was at that particular time in ICU Coma State – and also not even before for the past 12 years. People can accuse me for many things – but lying is certainly not one of them!

Today 18 months later I am in No Civil Status – and I cannot even renew my Yukon GMC Mulkiya Registration and still in paying PDCs Post Dated Cheques of 375 OMR from my Pension Retirement salary – and even if not able to use my vehicle! And lots more troubles to me – if I attempt not to pay The PDCs.

In Islam we are told that we will all die one day! From Allah SWT God The Almighty we come and to Him we return – with no exception of any kind! And there is The Punishment on Earth still waiting for us – and in Our Graves Punishment – and certainly when we face Allah SWT on The Day of Reckoning and Judgement!

And The Great Islamic Principle then of The Allah Punishment Law of Being Bankrupted when because of Dhulma Injustice you will lose all your good deeds to The Person you made injustice to – and when that is finished then you will take over all the sins of that same time!

It will be A Great Shock to many when they end up then in Eternal Hell Fire despite all the excellent good deeds that you otherwise did on earth! So Be Aware! Especially if you are in power to change things – and or have failed to try to draw attention to The Situation despite also in your power to do so!

Anyway, my younger Brother – through the goodness of his heart – had approached all those he thinks I had crossed to ask forgiveness for me from those affected on behalf of the Family and I! That is why so many came to visit me at the hospital – whilst I was struggling for my life in the Coma state! You cannot imagine that a small thing like urine not coming out could cause you to end in Coma State in ICU struggling for your Life!

Read these posts too – when I was in Coma State ICU –

The Prophet Dream!

The Crying Lady!

https://myshorttakes.com/2016/02/09/the-crying-lady/

Anyway also, The Doctors told me that I was very lucky to come out from the operation as my all body insides were operating less than 40% – and 2 times they had to resuscitate me – as my heart had stopped beating for some seconds!

Al Hamdu Lillah! From Allah SWT we come – and to Him we return!

Hasbiya Allah Wa Naymat Wa Kyll!

الحمد لله

حسبي اللہ ونعم الوکيل

The Good Doctor used The Metaphor that like they were carrying my body with the funeral pyre for funeral – and they had kept it down – waiting to lift my body for funeral – and I woke up just in time! So you have turned a New Page – and go and ask for Forgiveness from those that you might have upset and or offended – and start a New Life now! Even if it may be difficult now with what is happening to me now in My Life Now!

That Is The Way It Still Is1 Book 55 – www.createspace.com/6844924

Three days back – a Good Friend had died! He was certainly younger than me! It pained me a lot because I did not have a chance to meet him again after a suspicious rancorous ruinous Job Interview when he was asking me to ‘To Tell Him The Real Truth’ how I lost my job in Abu Dhabi! He was the CEO – and had only to say Okay we will give you a try – or take you! But he was incredibly suspicious ‘that I was not telling him The Truth!

Sometimes people forget that Rizq Your Sustainability – Income etc. comes from Allah SWT – and we Human Beings Bin Adaam – are only Sabaab – That is Cause! But sometimes we think we control peoples’ lives and fortunes – and forget what can happen to us when you annoy Allah God The Almighty by playing God Allah too!

Like I said many times before – It was all Allah SWT Ways to get me into writing – my fate and seal in writing – and in my hobby and passion! If I got the job 99% I would have had No Time in writing – and only started into writing after My Consultancy went bankrupted!

Dear Late My Brother & Friend;

I may well have misunderstood you then and now – because people some people are good in creating Fitnas and Divisions – sometimes from The Least Expected!

You have a Right To Protect Your Company though – as sometimes my notoriety precedes me in itself!

May Allah Give you The Eternal Peace in This World and The Next – and The Doors to The Heavens Firdaus Amin – and avoid The Punishment of The Grave Amin! I forgive you My Brother and Friend – and Forgive Me Too Please in retrospect!

Allah God spoke to His Messenger (Peace and Blessings of  Allah be upon him) in this manner:

“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:

202    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

203    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.”

204    [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.

205     So We forgave him that, and verily, for him is a near access to Us, and a good place of (final) return (Paradise).

206    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.

The Suppression of Ideas!

Am I Victim????

The suppression of ideas, thought and intellectual effort is a major sin. We will’ never allow anyone to suppress freedom of thought. I do not wish to go into detail about this. However, I know that there are people who call for the suppression of thought.

Ideas cannot be suppressed. Our Religion stands for ideas and the intellect not the suppression of thought. Never. Our religion is tolerant, ethical and receptive to ideas. Every verse of the Glorious Quran calls for thinking, cogitation, etc. It does not call for narrow-mindedness, mental inertia and blindly going with the flow!

On increasing (Dhulum) your property by Riba Interest!

 The Holy Quran 30.39 Surah AR Ruum

By Pickthall

That which ye give in usury in order that it may increase on (other) people’s property hath no increase with Allah; but that which ye give in charity, seeking Allah’s Countenance, hath increase manifold.

By Yusuf Ali

That which ye lay out for increase through the property of (other) people, will have no increase with Allah: but that which ye lay out for charity, seeking the Countenance of Allah, (will increase): it is these who will get a recompense multiplied.

Arabic

وَمَآ ءَاتَيْتُم مِّن رِّبًا لِّيَرْبُوَا۟ فِىٓ أَمْوَٰلِ ٱلنَّاسِ فَلَا يَرْبُوا۟ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ۖ وَمَآ ءَاتَيْتُم مِّن زَكَوٰةٍ تُرِيدُونَ وَجْهَ ٱللَّهِ فَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُضْعِفُونَ

****

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.

Sitting Centre is Late Saif (Stingo)

My Brothers Mohamed and Nasser on his sides!

Standing his brother Ghaith and Salim Abrawi.

He was more friends to my brothers Mohamed and Nasser! He found me to be ‘somewhat serious type’! 🙂 

Yesterday I had received this sad news of the death of a good friend nicknamed a.k.a. Stingo!

If you went around in PDO and at the other places asking people if they know Saif Al Darmacki – the answer you probably will get at best is ‘Not Really’ – the name is not familiar’. But if you instead used ‘Stingo’ most people will identify him! Like the few people on earth more famous by their pseudonyms!

Frankly I do not know how the nickname started or originated – and why they called him that! He did not seem to mind – and was always jolly and full of mirth and amusement! He handled most issues by this approach. I have never seen him angry or unhappy – and even if he was annoyed – he beat you to it by throwing in some joke or mirth at you alongside to make you feel his displeasure – but not showing any visible signs of anger and annoyance!

People like us in Human Resources are normally not used to deal with people that can put you in your place by cracking a joke as he went on! You may decide to be serious or draw his attention to him to be serious – but sooner than later the embarrassing parts will disappear with his sense of fun and mockery – even if it may be directed to himself in the discussions. Trust me you will end changing some of the not too pleasant parts in your Reports – even if they maybe based on Disciplinary issues in the few and rare times!

He was always joking and making fun – and even in serious formal issues you needed to remind him of the seriousness of the issues!

One time was involved in an issue with a British Chinese girl – but he was man enough to apologise to her – alongside with his humour usually directed against himself – to make her laugh and forgive him in the process!

And that is how he handled Life in General – and all issues affecting his life! A few kind of people you will meet in life that had these character and traits!

One time only I remember he was serious to me! Scolding me ‘cheapening myself’ by complaining about some ‘Personal Issues’ at that time! You are wasting your time really trying to talk to these peoples – because perhaps even an obstinate mule would be prepared to listen to you than them!

Goodbye; My Friend! Rest In Peace! May Allah Rest your soul in eternal peace in this world and the next – Avoid the Punishment of The Grave – and Open The Highest Doors of Heavens for you Amin – Amin!
