A5 – About Me In Writing!
After feeling so despondent, frustrated, unhappy and angry at the same time, I sent this SMS to all my contact friends and relatives.
It just said – Quote – AAWW and After Compliments;
Writing to me has always been my child’s dream, ambition, aspirations and hobby. I have never for one thought of it as a way to make money (if I do in the process well and good) or to take my revenge on anyone for any reason whatsoever (not me nor is my style).
I got into writing (see www.alsuleimany.com) and so I can say what I feel inside me and on what I am thinking – and record them in my column and books – before my time is up and I have to go! And why not? God Has given me these talents, innovation and expert knowledge so I can use them for my benefits – but more for the society I am in.
Apologies and Regards – unquote.
These are the responses I received soon afterwards.
From an Omani Senior Engineer – I remember your article on Barking Dogs. So what else is new? Just ignore such people. They should not touch even one hair of your head or put you down!
From my Daughter-in –Law – Wasalaam Pa. My apologies first I know I am too young to advise you but if anyone in this world has any complaints from your writing I believe that they just lack the sense of creativity that one needs to possess to understand the high caliber writing such as yours. I have read all your books and stories and they are amazingly exciting and informative – and not at all insulting or misleading.
Kindly do not apologise to anyone ever for being wise, smart and intelligent- and we can do is feel sorry for those that lack the sense of humor that God has gifted you with – Mashaa Allah. Keep writing and our full support is with you and as long as your children are alive, we will make sure that you will never ever have to be sorry for anything Inshallah. Love you always Pa – and proud to be your daughter!
From my daughter – Mabrook Pappa! Remember it an honor just to be published. People look for Publishers – but Maasha Allah publishers look for you . So do not worry about profit or sales. Enjoy what many Authors struggle to find and never find – Mwah – Love You!
From my sister – Hey Big Brother! You are a good Writer with a BIG heart we all love and respect you always. I always pray for you and Inshallah Allah will answer your good Duas – Amin.
From a Senior Engineer in PDO (Omani) – The article The Need To Change. Very good article indeed – and well said. Thanks!
I have read the attachment regarding your article for your mother and let me express how glad I am to have an author who does value her mother so much. We at Trafford are proud to have someone as sincere as you in our business. Please know that you have all our sympathies – From My Publisher (USA and Canada).
Thank you Majid, You too, May ALLAH, Support, you – Amin.
I am not a writer, but I faced difficulties in life, I will try to write something to you, so you can elaborate and write it in a better way – Thank you – UNESCO Senior Official (Qatar)

B – Comments – My Book – A Cry For Help!
Remember – the book is still under final touches in publishing!
v This is Book Two on Arab Management Theme – After Book One – Psychology of Arab Management Thinking – Arabian Management Services – Context and Perspectives – by the same Author. He has authored three other books The Sequel, Short Takes and Between Us Only series.
v It is a unique book, written in a unique style. It is a soul searching and critical evaluation of one’s own people in the field. He extols the culture and importance of work in his religion and the pitfalls and lackluster attitude of the Managers in position about the Principles and Process of Management – Editor Features – The Observer.
v Someone must have the guts and courage to write about this growing danger and phenomena with us here now – before it is too late for everyone! – American CEO.
v The book is critical but objective – and portrays the Arab mind and focus in its proper perspectives – Senior Omani Public Official
v Your writing is quite exceptional, informative and gripping – Omani High Official.
v This is a no punch-spared, no barrels held stuff, no frills-play but to be as straight forward, frank, open, transparent and honest as possible – so it can be a learning process for this generation and others to come in the future – especially in this part of our world – Omani CEO.
v There is a great need for improvements and achievements in this particular arena – your book has tried well to cover all these to a very successful extent – British CEO.
v Part of the problem of Arab Management is the inherited autocratic society we live in, and confronted by new Management concepts and innovation believing in freedom of expression, empowerment, delegation, transparency, ethics and accountabilities – and the clash between the two – Indian CEO.

Thanks, Bless to you and to your family. – Amin (Amen) — Omani HSE Senior Officer
v Do not give up even if they try to make you not to feel to be appreciated, recognised and acknowledged – because there are many that do not want the facts and the truth to be told – they should not discourage you at all – Remember some are there to stop people like you to come forward and be forthcoming. They will give you many reasons – one of the famous one is ‘because you write in English!’ They may even try to influence your family and friends to discourage and fight with you! That is how low they can get! - Retired Senior Public Personality
v What is the point if all these brilliance and intelligence that you have in you that would rot in case you die now or cannot write anymore? To rot in the ground with your decaying dead bones? You owe it to yourself only – and to your God only – no one else! – As in 12.

You are very highly professional person – but yet Allah has made you down-to-earth so that you can always help others that are in need for guidance, help and support. Others that are in your ranking are so far away from the nation heart unalike you!. We look up to you Sir. – Omani Investment and Tourism Manager.

NOT SO GOOD (Hurtful)!
v The articles you write are long winded and they do not connect – leaving the Reader to join the dots himself. Why don’t you be brief – and say what you want to say more vividly and clearly? – Omani Senior Official (and Not Too Keen Fan).
v I have had enough of these emails and PLEASE do not copy me anymore. – Family Member.
v Let me tell you this, – the only difference I have with you is the emails and some of your articles on our family. In numerous cases I had asked you not to write and copy people on articles about our family – that are not our blood and flesh of our family. This is the main cause of our difference so faint that you have never realized it – Family Member.
The above are not alone. Some of my emails were blocked by some ex companies I resigned from – leaving in less than 20 minutes with my carton of belongings!
v I want to ask you a direct question if you can reply me – who gave you the authority to call yourself a writer? I do not think you really can do that – Name and Email given (correct one).
v There are many others as in The Psychology and other books too. See same on this same site.
v My books were ent also to several HE and 2 to 3 HH also….
Psychology book has several chapters on HM and one on late HH Sheikh Zayed – President of UAE.
