Jamal: Luxor, Egypt

Asalaamwalaikum

I live in Luxor, but was educated in England. Luxor is very much Tourist Central. In Egypt there are now many places that help and assist you in following the path of Shaytan (Satan) not to forget mentioning all the shaytan's helpers (beautiful western women! ...Something that I did not witness during my time in England). Therefore it is not surprising a lot of young Egyptian men are being swayed on to the wrong path even though you see them for Juma prayers. Most of them drink and fornicate, which saddens me and people like myself, who are striving to do the right thing and live in Allah's way.

I attended Global Unity conference at the Excel in Canary Wharf. London. Looking back I think there is a bigger Islamic awareness in England then there is in Egypt which is so called "Muslim Country". In my job, I travel a lot and travelling around the Middle East and North Africa, I look around and wonder where Islam has gone?

However, the main point I wanted to make is that while I am reasonably well-off many Egyptian families struggle to make ends meet. They see how the Kufaar come over and spend money and enjoy lives. Talking to young men, I often hear them saying that may be we should have been born Kufaar, than maybe we would have had more fulfilling lives and enjoyed life like these people.

Surely these are the sign's of Qiyama (Day of Judgement). Keep up the good work in creating these types of informative websites and may Islam live long, inshallah.

Webmasters Remarks:

Asalaamwalaikum wa rehmatullah wa barakatu brother

Subhanallah, We have edited out a chunk of your email for we think our readers have understood without the extra detail what you meant by Shaytan's helpers.

Allah subhanatallah asked mankind if he wanted Ehmaan (faith) or Shaytan?

Our rewards will come in the life hereafter...that is a promise Allah has made to the believers and Allah never fails in his promises.
