People from all over the world land in America and Canada with degrees from their own countries only to find out that they will be jobless. They work as taxi drivers, in coffee shops, as security guards and live in tiny apartments. They face depression and must work at least 12 hours a day on minimum wage to survive, if they find a minimum wage job that is. A lot of women work in strip clubs and others become prostitutes in Canada and especially in America. Is this the American dream?
Even the education system sucks. Until Grade 10 they go at the pace of a turtle and then suddenly from Grade 11 students find themselves facing their worst nightmare, with immense work overload. In Universities, one semester lasts for four months in Canada. The academic year is only eight months long, which leaves students depressed and suffocated, especially when they work part time to support their education, trying to pay the outrageous tuition fees. School in Canada is free. Awesome. Only to find out that one semester in University costs 3,000 dollars and for those on a student visa, 6,000 dollars.
Lets now talk about religious freedom. Did they not raise a big issue about the head scarf. What happened to religious freedom then? Although in Toronto, which feels like Asia, a bearded man or a burka clad woman can walk the streets freely, in other cities they are stared at with disgust. Religious freedom? Numerous cases have been reported of Musallas being burnt by non-Muslims. Religious freedom?
What I have noticed is that people with their perfect lives go to Canada looking for only Allah knows what, and end up with depression and a list of other (huge) problems. Leaving a good life, a life of satisfaction where a person is practicing Islam, only to go to a place where a person cannot move an inch without indulging in haram, what kind of life does a person hope for? People start their Canadian and American dreams by buying a house and a car on mortgage and then wonder why they are always short of money. This is the hidden law. Just as there is the law of gravity, which cannot be seen but must be obeyed, the law of interest free transactions must also be obeyed.
Children end up with ‘friends’ doing drugs and drinking alcohol. There are daily arguments, where parents without any common sense, want their children to follow the path of morality and spirituality in a place lacking both. People who never thought they would drink end up in bars, people who used to pray end up with girlfriends, people who were faithful to their wives end up with prostitutes. Others end up doing drugs. Some even commit suicide. Is this the Canadian and American Dream?
