Salaam Alaikum My wonderful Muslim brothers and sisters.Reply
I am writing to seek your assistance. I am in a real bind and I need some help and honestly I have no where else to turn.
First a little about me:
I am American, born in Ohio and lived my entire life as an atheist. I became Christian sometime in 2001 and Alhamdulillah found Islam in 2002. Shortly after I become Muslim I moved to Egypt () and I have had a really difficult time since then. I am an Educated man. I have a BA in Education as well as other teaching degrees, I am a teacher by trade but Alhamdulillah Allah has blessed me with a brain that learns fast and can do just about anything. While here in Egypt I did manage to get married, Alhamdulillah and I have a son and another one due any day now.
To the point. I need a good job, I need a way to survive to take care of my family. I left the states for a chance to learn about Islam and Arabic but I have found mostly heartache and disappointment in the Arab and Islamic world.
I had a home here but it was lost along with everything I own in 2006 ( I wont get into what happened here but it was bad and I lost everything) Now I am living with my wife's parents she is 9 months pregnant and her, I and my 1 year old are all in one 8X10' Room. It's humiliating. I can't find work and when I do it's horrible. I worked in Oman, Saudi, Kuwait, and the UAE. I love the UAE but cant seem to find a decent place to work there, I get ripped off or treated badly in these countries. I am out of ideas.
I am willing to work anywhere, doing anything as long as the money is decent. I am a teacher by trade but I have extensive knowledge in many other subjects and can learn just about anything. Computers and the internet are a passion for me I know linux, unix, osx, Windows web design, etc. you name it.
Before Islam I worked in the Music Industry in L.A. California working for some of the largest companies in the world (Sony, BMG, Atlantic, Warner bros, Nike, PepsiCo. etc. ) Handling multimillion dollar Marketing deals.
I was also a certified welder for some years and I even worked at McDonalds.
I will travel anywhere and do anything for a decent wage. I have been considering returning to America but I really have nothing at all there, I would love to return to the UAE or South Africa.
I also have some fantastic ideas for the future of the Muslim Ummah online. Unique, and groundbreaking, wonderful HOLY COW ideas.
Unfortunately I lack the funds to do anything about it.
Dear brothers and sisters, if you can help me in any way I would greatly appreciate it. Please contact me if you want my CV or more information about me or wanna chat or something
JazakAllah Khair and May Allah grand you all a happy, healthy and wonderful Eid.
Musa Abu Ayyoub
