human trafficking

I saw a movie the other day, about human trafficking
At the end of the movie, it says that apparently 800,000 humans, including boys, girls, teenagers and women are being trafficked across international borders each year.
Humans are being trafficked for sickening sex trade, slavery or forced labour.

You know, the news we read about all those missing girls and boys, who have never been found?... I can't help wondering if they have gone missing under this exact circumstance. Imagine 800,000 human a year.

In the movie, they showed the different ways they get their victims. E.g. Having an audition for modeling project overseas to select their victims. Or in another case, a man deceived a woman by pretending to be crazy about her - and then lead her to the 'agents' where she was then locked, raped, threatened and finally sent to another country. Then as for the young boys and girls - there are some very poor parents with many kids in the under developed nations, who would sell one of their children to the agents, for some money. Then there are others who are just kidnapped in broad daylight.

Those people who does the kidnapping or deception, will then sell the humans they caught, to the traffickers.

Some kids fall sick from very bad living conditions and health and they die, before they are shipped out. - I think these are the more lucky ones out of those victims. Of course the luckiest ones, would be the ones being saved before the whole thing ruins their mental health and lives. But it's hard to imagine how they can be normal people after that.

Astaghfirullah. This is not just a movie. It's really happening.
It's sad, that in our region like in Singapore and Malaysia.. so far, I've never heard or seen this term being mentioned in the news. Which leads me to believe that in our region, these animals have been able to do it without being exposed. How else can you explain children who disappear just like that?

Ya Allah! SAVE our children from ever being subjected to such cruelties. Ameen.

THINK about it.

unplanned, coordinated

"Oh look! we're wearing the same socks."

heh.. now that she's mentioned it, i just realised it looked like we planned what we'd wear that day.

that unplanned thing was ok.

Have you ever terserempak dengan a neighbour, whom you don't know quite well, but to whom you'd just smile and he'd greet you with obvious questions like 'hi', 'gi kerja?', 'baru balik?', 'tinggal sini?'
I'm fine with that, until for that few days, i saw this neighbour in the morning and in the evening, and the next morning and the next evening - sampaikan.. when I saw him again. i was like 'alamaaaaaaaak!'

It was becoming quite an uncomfortable unplanned thing.
Because i don't like to smile ALL the time.

dah nak hujan..

See that.. awan sarat dengan hujan..

Seest thou not that Allah makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap? - then wilt thou see rain issue forth from their midst. And He sends down from the sky mountain masses (of clouds) wherein is hail: He strikes therewith whom He pleases and He turns it away from whom He pleases, the vivid flash of His lightning well-nigh blinds the sight.

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُزْجِي سَحَابًا ثُمَّ يُؤَلِّفُ بَيْنَهُ ثُمَّ يَجْعَلُهُ رُكَامًا فَتَرَى الْوَدْقَ يَخْرُجُ مِنْ خِلَالِهِ وَيُنَزِّلُ مِنَ السَّمَاء مِن جِبَالٍ فِيهَا مِن بَرَدٍ فَيُصِيبُ بِهِ مَن يَشَاء وَيَصْرِفُهُ عَن مَّن يَشَاء يَكَادُ سَنَا بَرْقِهِ يَذْهَبُ بِالْأَبْصَارِ
