RE: MAID SERVANTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST - AN ALL AROUND SCOURGE
- Dear brothers and sisters
Assalamu Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
How are you all. Though I couldn't contribute a lot, I read the mails as much
I had a visit to KSA last month. It was my first visit. With all my respect
and a big image I landed at the Riyadh airport. Within a couple of minutes I
felt it hard to believe. I saw the characters of JAHILIYYAH at the
immigration counter. I have travel a lot and passed through several airports.
But I never had the experince I had at Riyadh airport. I dont want to explain
more. I may loss my control.
My first impression is the impression for ever about KSA. It is a kingdom of
I pray Almighty Allah to forgive them and make them kind to fellow human.

AN ALL AROUND SCOURGE >Date: Mon, 25 Oct 2004 09:10:06 -0400 > >Muslims
around the world are earning unnecessary bad name because of the some
ignorants in the Middle East. > >Having maid servants has become a status
symbol, like Mercedes parked in the drive way. Having foreign maid servants
is a lose-lose situation, except for boosting the ego of people who have no
other way to boost their ego with. > >There are harrowing stories on both
sides. The victims are the maids and the children of the ignorant parents who
hire them and entrust their children in their care. Many such children, under
the care of the maids, have been sexually abused. For example, a male child
kept complaining about pain in his private part. Later, it was discovered the
maid has been sexually abusing him. This is not an isolated case. Many
similar cases have been reported. There was a bizarre case of a Philippino
maid baking a child in the oven and attempting to eat him. > >The
children 'raised' by foreign maids also suffer immense psychological,
cultural and religious fallout which could have long lasting detrimental
effects in their adulthood. A hefty price will be paid by the society which
has become slaves to a false sense of status consciousness, and failed to
foresee the ill effects of an alien culture. In the past, mothers have raised
children, some times as many as 6 or 10, without the benefits of most of the
modern day conveniences such as the refrigerators, washing machines,
microwave ovens and what have you. There is no real reason why mothers of
today need servants, especially with all the electronic appliances at their
disposal. Slavery has been abolished by Islam, yet we have now resorted to a
new form of slavery - in the form of maid servants. > >Even in the United
States and Canada, many nanny abuses have been captured by hidden video
cameras - scenes of child battering which would make the hearts of every
parent bleed. Then what should one expect of maids, who are away from their
own families and in most cases their own children, maids who are sexually
abused by their masters, maids who are forced to work under slave like
conditions, abused mentally, physically and traumatised in many other ways,
and some times denied of their hard earned wages? When these maids return to
their home countries they carry with them not only the scars of such
mistreatment, but also deep hatred for Arabs and Muslims. > >Abuse of maids
is not a special feature to the middle east. Many nannies have been forced
into prostitution, raped and even murdered in Singapore, Japan, Israel and
other parts of the world. It seems that hapless people, at the brink of
starvation, who abandon their own children at home to become modern day
slaves, are a fair game to the rich, irrespective of national or religious
boundaries. > >The religious scholars in Saudi Arabia have been lashing out
at this practice and the ill-treatment of the maid servants, but those who
should be listening to these exaltations are usually not at the mosques. They
are busy watching Miami Vice or steamy soap operas on their satellite TVs. >
