Worldly gains and hell

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS - By Saad Al-Motesh —Trans­lated by Kuwait Times

Iwon­der if any of you have been through what I am about to tell you. Any­way, I thought I should, be­cause it would prob­a­bly help boost public aware­ness and help you avoid fall­ing for the same mis­take. I used to re­ceive calls from Asian coun­tries where the speaker spoke bad Ara­bic and claimed that my mo­bile phone num­ber had won a con­sid­er­able amount of money and that I had to send a small amount to get the re­ward.

Know­ing that the whole thing was noth­ing more than fraud, I tried to kill time by chat­ting with my caller. Ask­ing about his name and learn­ing that he was a Mus­lim, I tried to talk him out of such fraud by re­mind­ing him of Judg­ment Day, Par­adise and Hell. I told him that what he was do­ing is theft and that I knew he did not call vol­un­tar­ily, but was asked to do so by some­one.

This is ex­actly what is hap­pen­ing with some Kuwaiti fe­male vot­ers us­ing re­li­gion to con­vince other fe­male vot­ers to vote for cer­tain can­di­dates. I would like to warn all fe­male vot­ers who have been threat­ened of the Almighty’s wrath un­less they vote for can­di­dates us­ing re­li­gion to win a par­lia­men­tary seat, that this is un­ac­cept­able intimidation. The women help­ing those can­di­dates are more like the Asian call­ers who are be­ing used by their bosses.

How­ever, ladies be­ware that if you ac­cept us­ing re­li­gion and fear of Al­lah to in­tim­i­date vot­ers, you should re­al­ize that Almighty Al­lah knows ev­ery­thing and will never al­low peo­ple to frighten oth­ers of tor­ture in hell to get their own worldly gains.
