The Case for Majid Al Suleimany!

The Suppression of Ideas!

Am I Now The 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!

I am Real Tired Now!

I have reached the end of my patience and strength – continuing to live! I am a very sad unhappy person with too much tests of life and difficulties! I even think have given up the will to continue living!

Everything has gone so wrong, hard and difficult to me now!

Really I do not know what to do now!

Please pray for me!

A         The Holy Quran

“Verily, Allaah will not change the (good) condition of a people as long as they do not change their state (of goodness) themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allaah)” [al-Ra’d 13:11]

B         A dog with its bone!

A dog won’t let go of a bone, it does nothing, but growls and guards it with its life!

A famous African saying best describes some people desperate in going chasing people after things and not wanting to let go at all … as if his life only depended on that!

C         Dog eat dog!

My late father used to say … on Eid day humans eat meat flesh but throw away the skins and bones … and dogs kill each other .. Big dog eat small dog … just because of these!

D     Religious Teachings Hadith!

We are told that if you can change things by your own hands – then do so! If you cannot, speak or talk about it! If that too you cannot, then speak from your heart – I am against this thing – but I am afraid (of the consequences if I try to speak about it!) And that is The Weakest of The Faith Imaan level (level 3)!

  • God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference – Reinhold Niebuhr
  • Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind do not matter and those who matter do not mind! – Dr. Seuss
  • If you don’t like something change it. If you cannot change it, change your attitude – Maya Angelou
  •  A British HSE Expert was telling me – In many major fires dead bodies are more found just near the doors because people just had panicked – and pushed each other out of the way – and instead orderly quietly rushing out  orderly!

Between Us Only! Protect The Youth! 7


The Oman Daily Observer of Sunday December 18, 2011

 Between Us Only!

Protecting Our Young – The Youth!!

 

It Is The Young Ones Who Are Suffering Now And The Most Exposed – And Under More Pressures Than Anybody Else For That Matter!

 

It is so easy for us so-called Senior or Elder Citizens to pass judgment on our Youth – and the increasing alarming incidence of Youth Death we witness nowadays to bad unsafe driving habits, alcoholism, smoking and drug addictions – but are we really serious in looking at this problem and syndrome objectively and constructively?

You know the sad part of even the young ladies ‘not following their grandmothers’ steps’ in meeting your husband for the first time on the wedding night itself – lowerage of family and social values, morals and behaviours, decadence, decay and malaise in attitudes, approaches, ethics, principles and ethics. The tear at the social fabric – that you find now even the young girls now joining the bandwagon? Who will protect the Youth – if not us The Senior Ones, Parents, Teachers, Families, Society and The Leadership.

 Let us be honest and factual about all these things! Prick our own consciences, soul-search and look at things constructively, pragmatically and with dynamism – and with sincerity, being genuine and with feelings!

 So many times I have written articles about Changes and The Youth theme and focus in my columns and books – some as early as I started this column in March 2003 – 8 years ago! Even before in my career life from 1974 – 37 years ago! I keep repeating myself time and time again – just sounding boring, mundane and irritant! Who cares? Who reads and listens? It is written in English – who reads such stuff in English? Just foreigners – and few Omanis only!

 I gave up writing two times in 8 years – but again persuaded to write all over again! All I get are bruises, punched faces and bruised and swollen heads banging it against brick walls – and people determined not to hear me and or to be listened to – and to be retaliated and to be punished in the process ‘of daring to open my mouth and speak’!

Death is in God’s hands – there is nothing that we human beings can do about it! Only Death – after God – is permanent and a surety! As we came empty handed in the world – and just as Alexander The Great had said – we go to our graves empty handed! All the riches, fame and power we will leave behind. My nephew Hashil was so happy buying a Lexus – even a secondhand one at that – but he left early to his death at 42 – with being a dialysis case even!

The other day I watched a very highly emotional Witness Programme in Al Jazeera English Television named – Five Hours With Raja. The story of a baby boy born with defects on his skull and brain – and lived for only 5 hours before passing away! Death does not distinguish between age, sex, nationality, creed, being poor or rich – being in high position or not! We all have to die one day! There is No Wastah (Influence) in Death – otherwise if it was only the poor people and the miserable and helpless would die – with great loss to newspapers of all those Death Notices missing in the newspapers!

 The Truth is Our Youth are facing so many pressures that us the older generation do not! Are we then surprised why so many are going that fast now? We should not be shocked – we should be more ashamed of ourselves more only! Things like getting first jobs – all sorts of competitions – peer pressures – society pressures – family pressures – job pressures – jealousies, envies and polarisation aspects!

Yes I fully agree with you! It is so easy to preach! I am still lost and confused – the other day my son was saying in great distress and lament to us – My father shouts at me – my mother shouts at me – my wife shouts at me – my boss shouts at me – the other car driver shouts at me – even if I am driving carefully a nutcase will bang into me – and if there is a Police car behind me I worry what I have done! I have no peace – home, the street, the roads, the offices – and back! No wonder he has a migraine!

 It is not only him! And then we Senior Omanis how we treat The Youth especially in the Offices – all selfish and individualistic – to protect our own positions – See www.majidbooks.com on my books! If we could – we would get rid of all of them – and bring in docile Yes-Sir expatriates only instead!

 And then in The Offices – especially Public! Even The Private Sector has now joined! Everyone is a CEO and GM – everyone is a tyrant – even that Clerk! All Red Tape, Bureaucracies and harrassing and paining the customers, clients and the General Public! So many miseries and show off ‘artificial pwers!

Also just imagine that young boy or girl in that class from a poor family background who did averagely well academia – but cannot progress further. He has no job! His peer from a rich and powerful family is sent for further studies and a job on return – and the other boy is still at home with no job! Years later the poor boy is offered a lift in a big powerful car – invited to a restaurant he never dared to even see from outside!

 I am not preaching Socialism – or anything of the sort – but simple sanity, pragmatism, reality and facts – even if bitter and not sugar coated. Let us be real – and factual! We need to wake up from this slumber – before it is too late for everyone!

 Take Care!
