Earthquake in Pakistan; 26 October 2015!


And Allah says, I show you signs so you could learn!

We as human being forget things easily but moments recall in front of us; moments which have passed and moments we try to forget. Despite of all our efforts, it happens that history repeats itself.

I still remember the horror of October 2005 earthquake and how could I forget that. It happened in front of my eyes and everything was so shallow that I couldn’t figured out how and where to run. Deaths, injuries, screams, blood; People were crying for their loved ones. Everyone seemed broken, there were tears and heartaches as everyone was effected one or the other way. We survived.

Today after 10 years, October 26, 2015 Pakistan was once again hit by massive 8.1 earthquake. Though I am not in Pakistan but I could feel the pain of people there. My homeland is again at the verge of destruction, people lost their loved ones, hospitals are no more enough to get hold of injured and dead. Death toll is rising!

Once again we are in the situation of asking forgiveness from Allah. We should! Irrespective of political and sects differences, we need to stand together on humanitarian basis to extend a helping hand to each other. To wipe out tears from eyes, to open the doors of our hearts and houses for our brothers.

Be Generous, be a Human!

Have fear of Allah and ask mercy from him!

سجدے


پھر الله ہمیں دکھا دیتا ہے، ہر چیز واضح کر دیتا ہے . ہمارے ہر سوال کا جواب دے دیتا ہے. اور پھر پوچھتا ہے  کون سہی تھا اور کون غلط.
ہمارے پاس شکرگزاری  کچھ نہیں بچتا . ہمیں اپنی دعاؤں کے رد ہو جانے کا ملال نہیں رہتا. بلکہ الله کی رحمتوں اور رحم کا اعتراف ہونے لگتا ہے. اس ذات نے ہمیں بچا لیا. اوندھے منہ کسی کھایی میں گرنے نہیں دیا.
الله ہمیں عطا نہ کر کے وہ عطا کر دیتا ہے جس کے لئے عمر بھر کے سجدے بھی ناکافی لگتے ہیں.
ہم سجدے سے سر نہیں اٹھا پاتے.کبھی نہیں!

کیوں؟


خدا کو ہمیشہ وہی کیوں چاہیے جو مجھے چاہیے ہوتا ہے؟ وہ ہمیشہ مجھ سے میری چاہ کیوں چھین لیتا ہے ؟ وہ میری دعا کیوں نہیں سنتا؟ وہ میری دعایئں قبول کیوں نہیں کرتا؟ کیا کمی ہے اس کے پاس پھر وہ میری چاہ ہی کیوں لے لیتا ہے مجھ سے؟ وہ تو بےنیاز ہے نا ، سب کو بنا مانگے دے دیتا ہے پھر مجھے مانگے سے بھی کیوں نہیں دیتا؟ گناہ تو سب کرتے ہیں، میں تنہا تو نہیں . پھر مجھے ہی کیوں نہیں ملتا .
کیا میں انسان نہیں یا مجھے تکلیف نہیں ہوتی. پھر الله کو وہ تکلیف کیوں نہیں دیکھتی ؟ مجھے تکلیف ہوتی ہے بہت ہوتی ہے، پھر الله کو کیوں محسوس نہیں ہوتی؟
کیوں؟

غیر مسلم


جب الله پر اتنا یقین ہے تو پھر الله پر ہی چھوڑ دو ، جو فیصلہ الله کرے گا وہی قبول کر لیں گے ……
ایک گہری خاموشی تھی ……………
……………………………………………
…………………………………………………..
………………………………………………………….
دعا اور یقین سے تقدیریں بدل جاتی ہیں . الله پر امید سے زیادہ یقین ہونا ضروری ہے ………….
پھر انتظار کرو، جب الله چاہے گا ہو جائے گا کیونکہ اگر الله نہ چاہے تو ہم تو چاہ بھی نہیں سکتے …………
……………………………………………………….
……………………………………………………………..
………………………………………………………………………
پھر کیا ہوا تھمنے بتایا نہیں.
اسنے کہا الله پر یقین ہے تو پھر جب جو الله چاہے گا وہی مان لیں گے . صرف دعا کرنا اور یقین رکھنا.
……………….
اچھا! جب بات الله تک پہنچ گیی ہے تو پھر الله کو ہے کرنے دو اور الله تک ہی رہنے دو . تم زور مت دو .
مجھے بہت عجیب لگا تھا کیونکہ یہ بات کسی مسلمان نے نہیں بلکہ ایک غیر مسلم نے کہی تھی . بات الله تک پوھنچ گیی تو الله ہی کرے گا پھر تمہے کیا غم ہے …………………….
آج ہم مسلمان ہو کر صرف بات کر دیتے ہیں، لیکن یقین نہیں کرتے. ایک غیر مسلم نے اتنی بڑی بات سمجھا دی تھی مجھے ….
کیی لمحوں تک میں اسکا چہرہ دیکھتی رہی تھی !

دعا


اب کی بار بہت مان سے ہتھیلیوں کا کشکول بنایا تھا ، بہت مان سے مانگا تھا . یہ سوچا تھا کہ اب تو مل ہی  جائے گا ، اب کے دعا رد نہیں کی جائے گی . اب کے آنسوں کے شفاف ہونے میں کوئی کمی نہیں تھی . اب کے عاجزی سے التجا کی  تھی . پھر بھی نا راضی کر پایی میں اپنے رب کو . ایک بار پھر ہر دعا میرے ہونٹوں پر ہی  دم  توڑ گیی . 

صرف آنکھوں سے بہتے اشک ہیں جو تھمنے میں نہیں آتے . اگرچہ یقین ہے کہ اس میں بہتری چھپی ہے تو پھر دل کو قرار آ جانا چاہیے . دل تھم جانا چاہیے. یہ بھی شائد حکمت ہی ہے ! 

2014 Conclusion!


Today is the last day of 2014. It’s 6:44pm and I have been sitting alone in my room thinking of what did we lose and what did we find in 2014. Sadly, loss is more than anything good. It wasn’t a good year for Pakistan. It started with killing and ended on taken away innocent lives of children and left their parents mourning over for lifetime.
It was an year of struggle and fight. 2014 taught me hundreds of lessons which made me cry my heart out, which broke me down and lost hope in everything. I was slapped by harsh realities and demons of loneliness. In every second I thought of my home, my family and my friends.
But apart from all negative happenings I also found good friends in Canada. Along with bearing harsh weather I finally secured a job which is totally a miracle for me otherwise I would never be able to get that. I’m thankful to all those who gave me an opportunity to prove myself and by the grace of Allah today I’m able to work with good organization.
I strongly believe that Allah is the only one who is providing us sustenance.
I can’t afford to visit Pakistan soon but I will must go one day InshaAllah.
My life is moving on and I certainly don’t know where is it taking me but I know that Allah is the best of planner because yes my belief got stronger when I saw all my plans failed.
Today on the last day of 2014 when I’m slightly recovered from stroke of pneumonia and during all passed days of my sickness when I was unable to open my eyes and reach to get glass of water, I thanked to Allah for all the senses and abilities he has given me. During my illness I learned how helpless you are that you can’t even raise your hand without the will of your lord but we are the ones who continuously disobey.
So as a conclusion, I learned to thank Allah in 2014.
What did you learn?

Happy New Year 2015 to everyone and I pray that this year brings you health, safety, love, peace and humanity.

Worth Read!


A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing:

**Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I had to stay stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time.
**The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favourite job. I had spent 30 years of my life in this publishing company.
**The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.
**And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.
At the end he wrote: Alas! It was such bad year!!
When the writer’s wife entered the room, she found he husband looking sad lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on the paper. She left the room silently and came back with another paper and placed it on side of her husband’s writing.
When the writer saw this paper, he found this written on it:
**Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had spent years in pain.
**I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write something better with more focus and peace.
**The same year my father, at the age of 95, without depending on anyone or without any critical condition met his Creator.
**The same year, Allah blessed my son with a new life. My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without getting any disability.
At the end she wrote:
This year was an immense blessing of Allah and it passed well!!
See!!
The same incidents but different viewpoints. If we ponder with this viewpoint that what could have happened more, we would truly become thankful to Allah subhanawata’aala.
Allah says in Quran:
“And indeed, your Lord is full of bounty for the people but most of them do not show the gratitude”
(Anamal, 73)
