At The 3aza
The past few days I was at Fahad's grandmother 3aza, 3asa allah yer7amha w yesakenha fasee7 janata, allahom ameen. I was sitting in my corner and observing the people who came to give their condolences. I was aghast! Is there no respect and decency left in our society? Don't you have any feeling for those who lost a loved one? Here is what I saw. People greeting people at the entrance of the house. "Hala wala flana. Eshloonich w shloon 3yalich. bla bla bla...bla bla bla... Ta3ali zoorina fee alshalaih." Wella nas etbarek 7ag wa7da tawha ma'76ooba. Hatha 3aza! Not a social gathering! Or those who come with Make-up on!!! Not eyeliner, or just foundation to cover almela7a w alchel7a… laaa full makeup!!! Laish yayeen??? Wela wa7ada dasha w emsawya tasree7a!!! wella elli ma7tarma nafs'ha, mako makeup w alsha3ar marbo6 bas al nail polish al 7amar yabrig!! These kind of people who have no respect should be turned at the door! There I said it! But what really annoyed me w ashkara mafhooma, almara alli dasha w sa7ba banat'ha weyaha 3lashan alnas yeshoofoonhom. 7asha marriage mart mo 3aza! Emsaween esh3orhom fee al9alonat w falinha!!! Al3bi 3ala alchetoof w yetbasmon! shelsalfa? Sij…. I didn't know how low people could sink with no respect and feeling for the deceased and their family, until now. Up Date: While typing this post I failed to clarify that I don't mean all those who came are like this. Only some who were just too obvious.
