Shoura passes bill on domestic helps' rights
Arab News

JEDDAH: In an effort to standardize employer-employee relations in the Kingdom, the Shoura Council has passed a bill pertaining to domestic workers' rights. The council, however, deleted a clause in the draft bill stipulating that the domestic workers should not be asked to work between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., press reports said.

On the other hand, the bill cautions employers not to demand the workers to undertake chores that were not mentioned in the work contract or to send them to work for someone else.

A worker should get nine hours of rest every day; he or she should not be asked to do a job that is injurious to health or damaging to honor, and he or she should be provided with suitable accommodation and allowed breaks for entertainment, prayer and food, the bill specified. The employer should prepare three copies of the contract in Arabic with translation. The employer and the worker will each keep a copy while the third copy is to be filed in the recruitment office.

The bill also stipulates that a worker should obey the orders of the employer and his family members in addition to looking after his properties. The worker should not do any thing that harms the employer, his children or elderly people in the household.

The bill stipulates that the contract should specify the nature of the work, wage, the rights and duties of the two parties, the period of probation and the circumstances under which the period of contract can be extended. The probation period should not exceed 90 days during which the employer can verify the professional skills and conduct of a new worker. If he is not satisfied with the worker's performance during the probation period, the employer has the right to terminate the contract without any liability on him. The employer cannot put the worker on probation more than once unless the nature of the work for which he was put on probation differs. The worker should not divulge private or secret information about the employer and his family or any other information he or she learns from the household. The bill also says that the worker should not leave the house without a legitimate reason nor should work for anyone other than his sponsor. The worker should respect Islam, Saudi customs and traditions.

Ugandans, stay abroad but send money home

EDITOR—The kyeyo inflow of dollars has dropped from $800m to $350m within the first quarter of the year due to the global economic downturn!
That means tightening belts for relatives and friends who live on money sent by Ugandans working abroad.

That hurts business too.
So I was recently surprised by Dr Maggie Kigozi’s call to Ugandans in the diaspora, to begin small businesses at home rather than sending money for consumption. Does it require an economics doctor to know that it is consumption that drives production?

If small-scale manufacturing businesses are started without a proportionate demand for the goods produced, will there be any economic growth? Huge economies encourage consumption together with investment, not one instead of the other.

By the way, who says that to help develop our nation all of us must stay and work in Uganda when some can work elsewhere?

It is an old idea that people must stay at the same address all their lives. Those who are at home and are well qualified have no jobs, if they have, they are very poorly paid.

To call on more qualified people to return is to flood the labour market, have more supply than demand of the labour force and lead to a further plunge of the wages, most of which are below living wage! Ugandans abroad, stay there and work but send money home for both consumption and production. Any good ideas you come across, please share them for the betterment of our society.

ISNA Condemns Beijing’s Heavy-Handed Response to Uighurs’ Protests

Source: ISNA

(Plainfield, IN – July 10, 2009) The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is troubled by the deadly ethnic clashes between the Hans and Uighurs in Urumqi, the capital of the Xinjiang province in China, and deeply concerned about the dire and deteriorating conditions of the Uighur minority.

We call on the Chinese government to respect the civic and religious rights of the Uighur minority and all ethnic and religious minorities, and to ensure that they are able to express their issues and grievances freely. We urge Chinese authorities to end their arbitrary arrest of Uighurs and release the more than 14,000 arrested since Sunday.

We further call on the Chinese government to pay close attention to the uneven development between Uighurs and Hans in Xinjiang, and to work toward correcting this situation. Such a change in policy is necessary not only to ensure the just treatment of the Uighur minority, but is also essential for promoting social harmony and peace.

Chinese police used violence to disperse Uighurs who took to the streets on July 5 to protest a brawl between Han Chinese and Uighurs in Guangdong last month. More than 156 people died in the ensuing clashes with police and with Han ethnics who mobilized to disrupt their peaceful protest.

The Chinese government should investigate this incident thoroughly and evenhandedly, and deal with the root causes of the current clashes, and address the grievances of the Uighurs who are treated as second class citizens in their own country. “The Chinese government needs to improve the conditions of the Uighur community and put an end to discriminatory practices against minorities,” ISNA President Ingrid Mattson stated.

The Uighurs are mostly Muslim with cultural and linguistic ties to Central Asia who have long suffered discrimination in their own homeland. The Uighurs have for decades accused the Beijing government of curtailing religious worship, stifling their culture, and denying them of the economic benefits of oil and natural gas produced in their province.

Dear Kadara,

17 years ago, before I got involved in the world of the Entrepreneur, I worked in Radio. During that time, I produced the most in-depth broadcast documentary ever produced on the life of Michael Jackson.

I spent several months tracking his life, interviewing everyone from his family to his schoolteacher. The documentary also featured a very rare and fascinating interview with Michael Jackson himself. I turned the documentary into a best-selling book which I published myself….so in a way Michael Jackson was the beginning of my Entrepreneurial life. (No this is not a plug…the book is no longer available)

If you would like to hear the documentary there’s a link at the end of this email.

I think the world has lost a true genius. He was a flawed genius, but in case you haven’t noticed, the two tend to go hand in hand. It’s lonely at the top and beyond his music, he never found a way of functioning in this crazy world with the talent that he had. And he was pursued relentlessly by everyone – including his family. Most of what you’ve ever heard about Michael Jackson is simply wrong. We revealed in the documentary that the stories about him trying to look white were not true. This week his dermatologist gave an hour long interview on CNN. He revealed that his patient had a fairly horrific skin condition for over a decade which produced white blemishes across his body. The only way to treat it was to use creams and lotions to lighten the other parts of his skin.

And you’ve probably never read about the trips that Michael Jackson made to hospitals in the middle of the night to be with dying children.

I wouldn’t equate the Entrepreneurial success that you and I are creating with life as the best selling pop star of all time – but it’s worth noting that success in any field comes at a price. One of these is the way that the world around us reacts to success, talent and genius. I produced this documentary because I’ve been fascinated with excellence and genius for as long as I can remember. If you share that interest or want to know the truth about Michael Jackson’s life, you might like to listen to the documentary. It’s on the You Tube link below. Because You Tube limit clips to 10 minutes, it’s in 14 parts. So when you come to the end of one part just click on the next one.

By the way, if you enjoy it, perhaps you could do this social media, tweet stuff and let other people know about it.

Best wishes

Jobs will be aplenty by 2014, but no Saudi takers
Adnan Jaber | Arab News

RIYADH: Major development projects such as the mega economic cities in the Kingdom will require more than 10.8 million workers by the year 2014, creating more job opportunities for Saudis and expatriates.

However, according to a study conducted by the Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI), only 5.45 million Saudi workers would be ready to take up the new jobs, creating a gap of 5.4 million or 49.8 percent.

The study estimated that Saudi workers make up 12.8 percent of the total work force in the private sector. This will make it difficult for private companies to win government contracts because of restrictions in recruiting foreign manpower.

Despite graduating from technical and vocational centers, many Saudis are not qualified to meet the requirements of the private sector, which prefers experienced workers.

The study proposed a survey of new job requirements, especially for the Kingdom's mega economic cities, and the training of Saudis to meet these. It also called for a revision of the curricula of educational and training institutions to meet job market requirements.

The study emphasized the importance of improving the productivity of the Saudi work force by establishing specialized national productivity centers and providing incentives for Saudis to achieve this goal.

The study expects the unemployment rate among Saudis will come down from 10.5 percent in 2008 to 7.1 percent in 2014, with the number of unemployed Saudis shrinking to 418,500.

According to the study, this would be structural unemployment as these Saudis would not be qualified to do the jobs done by expatriates.

The study attributed the lack of qualified Saudis to do private jobs to a lack of science and technology graduates. Graduates in engineering, medicine and sciences met only 12.5 percent of the Kingdom's needs in the last five-year plan.

This situation has forced the Kingdom to depend on foreign workers who constituted about 54.4 percent of the Kingdom's work force in 2007.

During the past seven years, the study said, Saudis have been engaged in administrative and secretarial jobs in the private sector. Their participation in industrial, agricultural, service and other productive work has been negligible.

Despite their high qualification, due to social and legal restrictions, women accounted for only 8.1 percent of the total Saudi work force.

Many private firms are still unprepared to employ women, irrespective of the state's directives to expand job opportunities for women. This will further reduce women's job participation to 6.1 percent by the end of next year.



July 11 Day of Remembrance for Srebrenica Genocide

Source: ISNA

(Plainfield, IN – July 11, 2009) The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) commends the European Parliament for proclaiming July 11 as the day of remembrance for the Srebrenica genocide. The date commemorates the biggest war crime in Europe since the end of WWII when Bosnian Serb forces commanded by Ratko Mladic massacred over 8000 Bosniak men and boys who were separated from the female population of Srebrenica and summarily executed them on the ground of their religious identity.

“Proclaiming July 11 as a day of remembrance for the Srebrenica genocide is important not only for the world to remember the victims of this atrocity, but to make sure that all people of good will work to prevent future genocides,” ISNA Executive Council Member Sami Catovic said. Sami’s paternal ancestral homeland is Bosnia. His father fled from Bosnia after his family was massacred in the genocidal campaigns carried out by Serb extremists during World War II.

The Srebrenica massacre was designated as genocide by the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Tribunal. Bosnia Muslims came under attacks by Serbian forces in 1992 upon the breakup of the former state of Yugoslavia. The ensuing war left 200,000 people dead and displaced millions. The United States is now the home to over 98,000 Bosnian Americans.

In the final months of the war, Serb forces overran the city of Srebrenica, killing some 8,000 Muslim men and boys in one of the most shocking massacres in modern history. The people of Srebrenica thought they were safe under the protection of the UN peacekeepers.

Bosnian Muslims, still struggling with the civil war memories and aftermath, continue to embrace their pluralist society. Through the able leadership of many of their civic and religious leaders, including that of the Grand Mufti of Bosnia Mustafa Ceri?, Bosnians are working diligently to build their community and promote peaceful cooperation across religious and ethnic boundaries.

Today another 500 coffins will join the thousands buried in the memorial graveyard outside of Srebrenica.

Women dominate city council's open hearing
Sultan Al-Tamimi | Arab News

JEDDAH: Women dominated the Jeddah city council meeting on Thursday by airing their views on issues close to their hearts at the council's open session.

Probably getting the opportunity to discuss issues along with other members of society for the first time, young women presented their views on, and in some cases solutions to, the sewage problem and the possibility of setting up animal shelters.

Members of the public meet with the council members one Thursday of every month to discuss issues that concern them and their neighborhood.

One woman asked whether the council would consider a more active role on issues concerning humane treatment of animals in Jeddah. She suggested setting up of shelters to care for these animals.

Another woman asked for more activities to clean up part of Jeddah's seaside - especially the trash and sewage in the area. They called on officials to impose fines on those who are caught "polluting" the area - even those throwing trash.

They cited last week's drowning of a woman, later identified as Fatima Al-Saab, as a case in point. They said part of the problem was the sewage pipes in the area. They called for safety measures around these areas.

Tariq Fadak, the council's head, said the municipality would study all aspects before arriving at a solution. He said all are welcome to the council's open sessions and hoped constructive opinions would be aired during these meetings.

Also during the discussions, which was attended by more than 25 people from various parts of the city, a complaint from residents of Al-Ain and Al-Salam districts calling for the halt of building houses more than seven floors was brought up. Residents of the two districts pointed out the laxity in applying rules on these buildings and their owners even though they have complained to the municipality on multiple occasions. "Our neighborhood is all villas and there shouldn't be buildings more than four floors high in the area. Those who want to construct multistory buildings should move elsewhere. We have been living this neighborhood for more than 15 years," one disaffected resident said.

People from Al-Safa district No.7 were dismayed at what happened to the public park in their area, when it was transformed into a shopping mall.

Fadak said, "We at the city council look at these issues seriously, particularly those concerning pollution of the seaside and its impact on swimmers and tourists."

With regard to Al-Ain and Al-Salam residents, he said: "We have asked the affected residents to put their complaints on paper and submit them formally. We will hold a public hearing on these ... and based on the hearing we will decide on the proper procedures to solve the issue."


Look for Goodness
In everything, goodness is there. Our goal is to find it. In every person, the best is there. Our job is to recognise it. In every situation, the positive is there. Our opportunity is to see it. In every problem, the solution is there. Our responsibility is to provide it. In every setback, the success is there. Our adventure is to discover it. In every crisis, the reason is there. Our challenge is to understand it. By seeing the goodness, we'll be very enthusiastic and our lives will be richer. forwarded by. majid alemi junior. in bc.


Title: "Al Miraj - Journey Through The Symbolic, Ascent In The Real"

Speakers: Mahbub Gani and Iman Poernomo

Date: 24th July 2009 6.45-8.30pm

Venue: Abrar House, 45 Crawford Place, London W1H 4LP (nearest tube Edgware Road, Marble Arch)

The City Circle is pleased to present "Al Miraj - Journey Through The Symbolic, Ascent In The Real" with Mahbub Gani and Iman Poernomo; the first of a series of spiritual talks leading up to Ramdan.

The Night Journey, Al-Isra wal-Miraj, is a key event in the revelation of
the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh). The journey involved the Prophet being carried
by Buraq, "an animal white and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a
mule, who would place its hoof at a distance equal to the range of vision",
from Mecca to Jerusalem, where he led the previous prophets and messengers
of Islam in prayer. He then ascended through the heavens and spoke with
particular prophets. At the pinnacle of his ascent, Allah (swt) gave him the
instructions regarding the number of compulsory salat we must make as

Importantly, there are narrations in which the Prophet declared that this
journey was a physical event, not a metaphysical vision. The majority of
scholars in the past have agreed with this. However, it is also clear that,
even amongst the Sahaba of the time, the miraculous, physical nature of this
journey was cause for much debate.

In this modern age, science and digital logic ground so much of our daily
lives, we all unconsciously fall into a particular way of thinking about our
psychological relation to reality. A kind of scientism is
unavoidable, and Muslims are not immune to it: after all, both historically
and recently, we have often played a central role in the development of the
scientific world view.

A surprising conclusion of the evening will hopefully be that a deeper
understanding of the way in which we do science -- in fact, the way in which
we doing anything in life -- is made possible by the physical reality of the

The presentation will attempt a bewildering bricolage, fusing ideas from the
European thinkers Lacan and Deleuze with the poetic and metaphysical
thoughts of Ibn Arabi and Allama Iqbal. The key message of the presentation
will be: a ?repetition? of Prophetic Islam is available to us all and
requires our own Mi?raj through prayer, as indeed the Prophet (SAW) himself
suggested in the report, ?The Mi?raj of the believer is the Salaah.?

Mahbub Gani is currently a lecturer in the Department of Electronic
Engineering at King?s College London. His primary research interests include
the control and coordination of multi-agent systems and distributed signal
processing. He is an active member of IMASE (International Muslim
Association of Scientists and Engineers) and is a contributor to and the 1001 Inventions project run by FSTC (Foundation
of Science, Technology and Civilisation). More recently he has been involved
in running the Critical Reading Group ? a constellation of Muslims from
diverse backgrounds who meet on a weekly basis to engage critically and
playfully with the works of important thinkers and scholars.

Iman Poernomo is a Lecturer in Computer Science at King?s College London,
where he specializes in software engineering and constructive logic. He
holds a PhD on these subjects from Monash University Australia, where he
also completed a BSc in Pure Mathematics and a BA in Philosophy and Critical
Theory. He is the author of over 46 publications and one book, Adapting
Proofs-as-Programs (Springer, 2005). He is also the producer for Suficore
band, the Friends of Design.

All welcome.
