Funeral & Traffic

Again the Libyan community in London gathered at the mosque today for the funeral of one of the most respected Libyan men in the UK, Mr. Mohsen Omaire May Allah have mercy on his soul (الحاج محسن عمير عليه رحمة الله).
I phoned my boss earlier and asked him for permission to attend the Janaza Prayer, he was kind enough to let me attend the prayers and he even told me that I can go to the burial if I wanted, The deceased was a friend of my late father and he was always kind to me so I was really grateful that I could attend the burial.
I left work a bit early and headed to the mosque and put my car in the pay & display car park, as I entered the mosque there were many Libyan men inside then someone announced that the Dhuhr prayers was in half an hour and not now so many of us had to go out to the car park to adjust the time for parking.
After the prayers we stood outside trying to organise how to get to the cemetry, I didn't know how to get there as I have only been there once before so I asked one of my friends who knew the way to let me follow him and I kept repeating it to him in case he forgets. We got to the car park then he started driving and I was driving behind him.
As soon as he got to the traffic light it started to change, instead of stopping as there was no way that I could go through, he shot past the now red traffic light, I had to wait and it was one of those annouying lights that take for ever to change, as I got through I started looking for my friends car thinking he would be waiting for me, he was not there! I drove further and kept looking but nothing! I phoned him and asked him where he was, he said he was on his way to the cemetry, I was surprised and reminded him that I did'nt know the way and was depending on him to show me the way, he blamed me for not driving through the red light to catch up with him, can you believe this?? I drove around in circles then decided to drive back to work. I am so angry, in fact I am fuming and can feel black smoke coming out of the top of my head, I missed the funeral because I am a law abiding citizen that did not want to drive through red traffic lights.

If this is the behaviour of your "friends", I don´t dare to think what relationship you have with your enemies!

AngloLibyan said...

unfortunately Safia some of the Libyans here behave this way they do not listen to advice and yes you are right in a way.

Trabilsia said...

I'm deeply sorry for your loss.

As for your friend's behaviour, well some friends are just like that. I don't know what it is and why they behave badly . What I do know is that in your heart you intended to go and that is what really counts Anglo.
Take care

AngloLibyan said...

Thank you trabilsia, I cant help this guy's behaviour but I have known him for many years, I am still angry but I will soon get over it.

white african said...

may allah have mercy on his soul (ameen)

may allah reward you for your intention inshallah, your friend should be feeling very guilty but im guessing hes not seeing how he blamed you!!!

some libyans have a mentality problem..

Trabilsia said...

I hope you have cooled down.

White African
Mentality problem er... I don't think so. I'd say DNA lol.

AngloLibyan said...

Thank you whiteafrican and you are right, he is not going to feel guilty, I know he wont.

Trabilsia, I have cooled down until I spoke to another friend and told him, that made me fume again, I am fine now :o)

Sereeb said...

May Allah bless his soul. I met Mr. Omair long time ago when my cousins sent me few stuff with one of his nephews. He is related to one of my cousins. He was such a gentleman. إن لله وإن إليه راجعون

AngloLibyan said...

Yes Sereeb he was a real Gentleman, thank you.

Chatalaine said...

I am so sorry that you have lost a long time family friend, Mr. Mohsen Omaire.

Your friend that was to show you the way, well he is still your friend. We all get involved and forget things. When he went through that light his mind might have been on work, thinking he had to get back as soon as he can. And then when you called he got defensive. Something we all do that from time to time. Friends are hard to find and we need to forgive their short comings.

AngloLibyan said...

thank you chatalaine, yes he is my friend he is always like this and he will not change, we are not all the same, I am sure I will be seeing him this weekend.

Leilouta said...

That is rude!! If I were you, to get him back I would invite him to dinner and leave the house about 15 minutes before his arrival :)

AngloLibyan said...

leilouta that is nasty, I like it :o)
I might just do that.

Lebeeya said...

How cruel, evil, retarded of him!

You know anglo, I used to think that the trick of knowing the 'real' character of a person is either by living with them, going on holiday with them, doing
business with them or lending them money to borrow.. but now, after reading your post, i think the trick to show true colors of a person would be by asking them if u can follow them to the cemetary.

AngloLibyan said...

that is another way I suppose, thanks lebeeya.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found
a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
topic but I had to tell someone!
