BACKSTAGE -2-

آ 

Well..i have to say that things weren’t always that terrible…

Sometimes it was just..strange…overwhelming at some occasions.

I remember the first time i went to paris with my father as a teen..it’s different ofcourse..cause travelling as a child would bring up answered questions in my mind..but teens feel the answers before learning them..

The seconed i steped out from the plane i realized that the same surrpoundings would be there only limited..

a weired man in his late twenties was waiting for us in the airport..he was moving too much,makeing a fuss about dady’s arrival..as if he were the presedent of god knows what..he looked silly,exadurating like that ..

After a couple of hours..the phone rang in dady’s hotel room..it seemed strange to me..who would call us that fast..unfortunatly i answered to find the extra-femenin sound of an arabian woman…being cute and freindly asking about my father..the surprise was that he didn’t know her..

she was a fannnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

ofcourse the next morning i had another small accident with reality when i saw a couple of girls a little older than i playing around when i went toآ 

iffel tower..they were literly quarter covered……and arabians..!

i wasn’t veiled at the time and rather funky but their outfits were outragious as any thing not just arabs..

isawآ  a lot of artists and important people on this trip..they would gather at a cafe on the champselese…one night iآ was sitting with my dad when a very old man came over with his family to say hi..i knew that he was a very rich man from saudi arabia..and he was asking my dad to call a very well known artiste to convince her to take only 250 thousand dollars …i was so curious to know what for..they kept talking for about 10 min. and i was dieing to know…i was more curious when my dad refused politely.to interfere…at last his wife said..well,i will not ask her to sing or dance..the kids just want to take pictures with her on their sister’s birthday party..

and i burst in a hesterical laughing case…i just couldn’t stop or not show..the man and his family stared at me and my dad was embaressed and saying..what’s wrong honey??something must’ve happened on the street!!

after a minute they were gone….and i said to my father…250 thousand dollars just for photos?!

he said..yes..but she insists on 300..!!

Realy that was it..i knew that it was all fake..worthless..

some people spend their life time to study and work hard and live respectfully and they don’t get to do half that amount of money..

humans aren’t fair..and when they screw decency and morals and common sense…life is turned upside down…

Back then i wasn’t aware that iآ will meet a different kind of humans that will make me restore faith in decent people again..

Back then i just had to thank allah that my father is not that corrupted..

hhhe never drank or smoked..never thought he was so much..i realy admired his humble soul..he’s the kind of man who wouldn’t go into fancy restaurants without his driver sitting among us on the same table..talking and laughing with us…

he would always point out the uglyness around him and teach me lessons on how to stay away from all that..he didn’t shut my eyes..but made me see the truth…whats behind the scenes…

To be continued………..

    Yes, I’d imagine things like these do happen. It’s a completely different reality for those with millions in their pockets. Their standards on what is little and what is too much is different from the rest of the people. Is it fair? It’s fair to be rich due to hard work, but it’s certainly not fair that rich people’s money aren’t regulated, like a forced zakat that they should pay by law as a percentage of what they have. After they give to charity properly, then la jahanam whatever they want to do with the rest of their money. Unfortunatly what is happening is that zakat is not being forced on the rich and they waste their money on things…subhanAllah.

  2. asalam 3alaykom..brother adbullrahman..i agree..but still,even if he paid zakah..who knows..even if he did..what kind of reason is that to waste such money..i think that starving people all around the world don’t end..
    also it’s the contradictions between arbic behavior in and out of their countries..

    I agree, mazboot. There is no excuse for him to waste such money. Although I do doubt that their act abroad is that much different from that within their own countries. Back when I was in Saudi Arabia, there was a prince in my school and subhaan Allah, you tend to feel pity more than anything else for them.

    yallah, alhamdullilah.

  4. asalam 3alaykom,yes my brother..up close and personal is a very different view..i have to say that i met very nice saudi’s ..they were rich too but smarter than this..it’s a character thing ..it’s not about nationality or status..
    thank you so much for sharing..

  5. Hey My friend,

    You said something I always think about, which is "some people spend their life time to study and work hard and live respectfully and they don’t get to do half that amount of money.."

    I know that most of us spend their lives trying to save some money whiich artists spend in two seconds…I believe it’s all about marketing…you know? If people stopped attending their movies and buying their CDs, I guess there won’t be this huge amount return of money you know?

    I mean, This industry basically is based on how you market other people, how you add a spot light on his/her personal life, how you be a part of their world in one way or another…..

    Call me crazy, but I believe we make them the way they are…We do! We are ALL a part of that, we can stop this non sense, but don’t want to…

  6. asalam 3alaykom..dear neverland..no, i won’t say your crazy..cause i did that a long time ago..i stopped fueling this painfull farse..
    i stopped being a part of it and believe me there are artist who realy want to stop too but just can’t..because it’s almost impossible specialy male artists..

    the one that i was mentioning in the post once cried and said:i know that this is wrong but i was raised from the age of five with a piano..ballet..and vocals..teachers all the time..with literly a golden spoon in her mouth..preparing her for show bizz…that woman quit now and she’s still rich but with a total different faithfull personality..she was always kind..but now she’s pure…

    It’s not always the case . In 1993, I went to a concert in Jerash Fesitval, Cheb Khaled & Mr. Mel7im Barakat gave the money to the Palestinian people at the time that nobody cared.

    Please remember the good saying that goes like this: They asked Pharoe why did you etfar3anet, he replied: I didnt find nobody to stop me!!

    But you are right.. You will always find those who don’t know how to preserve God’s blessings.

    Waiting for Number 3 🙂

    People are shallow, watch the Arabic TV Channels and you will find out.
