Dear Massi, I am a night worker. 

I am contacting you on this because I saw this paper in my client's car. Actually I was reading this column while he was on a phone call to his wife.

After we had finished my job, he was talking to me about his religion and suggested I should read a couple of books.

I told him I am going to leave this lifestyle and get a proper job now.

He said that was not good enough and I should convert to Islam and started badgering me. He then called me a 'haramee' for not listening. I didn't know what it meant and had to look it up.

I told him according to his religion he should be stoned for adultery after paying me for this kind of service.

But he is a regular. Why is he like this?


Massi says, Thank you for writing in. It is great news that you are looking to make positive changes in your life.

Although it may appear that your former client has a 'pick and choose' approach to religion, perhaps it was his guilty conscience that led him to discuss religious matters with you.

Nonetheless, he is accountable for his own actions so you can't do anything about that.

He is of course being very hypocritical in his approach and should stop judging other people without looking at his own life.

If you do speak to him again maybe you should tell him this otherwise I would suggest just steer clear of him altogether.

Best of luck in embracing your new path.
