    Posted: 28 January 2008 at 7:08pm

As-Salaamu alaikum,

Are there any black Muslim hijabi women on this listserv living and working in Dubai, UAE? I am a black Muslim hijabi sister who is considering moving from the US to Dubai. I am also an IT professional and a divorced mother with a young daughter.

Would I have to be worried about any of these things in Dubai: anti-black racism, disdain for being divorced, arrogant, condescending people in the workplace?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Jazakum-Allah khair.

"The self-fulfilling prophecy is, in the beginning, a false definition of the situation evoking a new behaviour which makes the original false conception come 'true'. This specious validity of the self-fulfilling prophecy perpetuates a reign of error. For the prophet will cite the actual course of events as proof that he was right from the very beginning."
