Mystical Life

Mysterious are people; 
Mysterious are their ways;
Hearts are forced to mend,
Wandering in different maze.

Strange is your justice O Almighty Allah!
We make a house
In someone’s heart for years
Alas! It gets destroyed in seconds.

When was I,
Ever rich O ALLAH!
I have come to your door always
With a bowing head and open arms

Blessed am I when YOU LOVE me;
My soul gets what it desires.
Your Love, care and affections be mine,
Blessing me with it, in all ways !

Soul Delights !!

When sky falls down and stars stops glittering,
When face forgets to smile and tears makes its way
When there’s a way that seems far far away
When world seems to have turned its back on You
O when was i alone when i found You in me ?

The dreams,desires,sorrows ,pains and gains , 
What a ride,that made my journey amaze.
O Almighty , you’ve lighten my heart , 
Blessing me with your Light,
Meeting YOU my soul delights!!

How to Restart – Life?

Certain realities remain mysteries and Life is that mystery which is a reality with which you always need to unearth the mysteries that surrounds it. The thing about mysteries is that there’s always an element:
1. Which will lead to towards happiness, success, satisfaction and contentment.
2. Which will lead us towards feeling sad, having resentment, being in disarray and feeling totally lost.

But there’s one thing in Life that should always be Constant either in Situation #1 or Situation #2 and that is the state of being in “Gratitude”.

We all have heard it from a lot of people “Life Goes On”, “Time and Tide Waits for None” but yet many of us finds ourselves in that phase of our lives when we start feeling there’s nothing we can do to make our lives better. We start feeling inferior about ourselves. We go so deep down in life that we start accepting things about ourselves what people have been saying to show us down for ages but were never able to shatter us and our confidence but now they had been.

We start beginning to ponder in situation how to Restart our Life?

Lets analyze it and ask yourself these Questions:
1. What changed suddenly in your Life that has made you feel inferior about yourself?
2. Would you have done anything differently with that “change” with the given resources you had at your disposal and the situations in which you were at the moment when you made that decisions?

You will probably keep on pondering and pondering for hours and hours but you might never reach a conclusion to these questions ever in your Life. Not because you don’t want to face the reality or you are afraid of hearing the truth but because somewhere down the line you made those decisions at that time which you had felt were “BEST”. It wasn’t as if altogether that “BEST” converted itself into “WORST”.

There were always certain things that used to be part of your Life during times when you had witnessed hardships. An important feature in that was you had a belief that good days will come, you used to face difficulties with the Smile, you never used to shy away from any difficult moment as you were always determined to face any Challenge that was thrown at you and above all you were always in GRATITUDE to Almighty ALLAH with what you had cause you knew “What you have is BEST for YOU and you’ll always get much better than this from ALLAH when the Time will be Right”.

If You or any of your Friends or Loved Ones are passing through that moment in Life right now, remember your Beauty lies within YOU and it will only be Radiated outwards only and only when you will start Believing where you Belong to and what you can achieve by welcoming challenges with SMILE and connecting your soul spiritually to guide you through. “It’s all In YOU – You got to DO IT YOURSELF”.

“Pakistan’s Family Gate: Where News & Current Affairs Media Got Played?”

Indeed media is the reflection of your society! If ‘Kahan Ghar Ghar Ki’ & ‘Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ was the most watched Indian soap opera in Pakistan with which people used to align themselves during prime times in early 2000; the introduction of news & current affairs channels has allowed us to find an alternative where we have been able to find our own version of ‘Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki’ & ‘Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ during that time slot not on any entertainment channel but on news & current affairs channels.

Here we don’t need any mother in law who wants to control her daughter in law or some sister in law who doesn’t adore her brother’s bride rather here we have anchors /host who play the role of mother in law who is quiet concern about what’s happening in the powerful corridor of our country. These mothers in law who have been able to find so much space in local cable network thinks that all of them can go on to speak on any issues without holding them accountable for anything. Yes self accountability and self responsibility is one thing which you can’t align with them.
The case of Arsalan Iftikhar & Malik Riaz not only exposes lack of journalistic ethics that prevails and the credibility of journalist but also the nature of the society we live in i.e. a society full of bigots; split personalities; extremism; conspiring mindsets where every single person has a price tag attached to them.

The way this scandal has come to limelight is hardly a surprise for anyone who keeps an eye on the politics of Pakistan. Yes it’s of no surprise that instead of discussing Federal Budget that was announced just days before this scandal came into media; PM Disqualification; NICL or Balochistan Missing Person’s Case isn’t any more the matter of importance for television industry rather we have got one more soap opera in the form of Arsalan Iftikhar & Malik Riaz case .

Yes! Let’s give a big round of applause to our senior journalists who were so sure about the authenticity of the information that was being shared to them by Malik Riaz that they didn’t even care to run that story in their own newspaper of which they are Group Editor of. Why? Perhaps they were afraid of financial penalties and legal action that would have followed had it been published.
It’s interesting to note here that how can journalist really be independent and do an objective reporting on this case when suddenly minutes long commercial of Bahria Town have started to appear on our television screens. Where are media industry ethics and why couldn’t they have refused to air these commercials when this case is sub judice. How can we place reliance on what media is reporting is with full independence and objectivity when it itself has a financial interest attached with one of the party involved in this case?

Mindset of our society can be judged from the fact that we are not really bothered about that a person is claiming to have spent his money on Arsalan Iftikhar in order to get his cases quashed in the court of Chief Justice of Pakistan i.e. a person himself admitting to have used his money to influence judges of Apex Court of Pakistan and when I say judges: that does not only involve Chief Justice but rest of the judges as well who would have sit on the bench where Malik Riaz cases were being heard. Is Malik Riaz confessing that an act was done not only to bribe Chief Justice but all other judges who were part of the bench that were hearing cases against Malik Riaz ?

The relevance of Arsalan Iftikhar in this case is only that of a middlemen who promised to deliver some favor in return for sum of money to Malik Riaz . But real question is did any of the money reached to any of the Honorable Judges of Supreme Court of Pakistan? Does any journalist have enough corroborative evidence regarding that or just because a person named Arsalan father is Chief Justice of Pakistan ; we will run vilification campaign by using Chief Justice name in this case and will end up destroying the institution which people of Pakistan holds in great esteem .

It’s not only Arsalan Iftikhar or Malik Riaz who is in the dock rather its journalist and the kind of journalism they do itself is in question.

Stand Up For The Minorities In Pakistan

In 1947, Pakistan, a land which was carved out from Indian Subcontinent made a lot of promises of giving the better prospects and future to the people belonging to diverse cultural and religious values by none less than its own founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah. Unfortunately, he didn’t lived much longer after independence to turn people belonging to different religion, race and castes as one Nation and the animosity between the two neighbors Pakistan and India, always have taken the religious angle by going on to target people belonging to minority religion in the society to show their superiority of over each other rather than accepting those minority as their own citizens.

A country which was never an Islamic Republic for more than 25 years after its independence went on to become a Republic for one religion rather than all the human souls belonging to it as an equal citizen having the same rights and privileges . The fact that did stood on the ground in 1973 and is still pretty evident is that had religion really been the most pivotal part of running a State , Pakistan wouldn’t have lost East Pakistan. We lost East Pakistan because we neglected people their Just rights and couldn’t get out of the ego of having superiority complex over them.

We never learnt enough from the mistakes we committed with people of East Pakistan and if that wasn’t enough we went on to target the minorities living in our countries. For a State to differentiate among-st its citizen in relation to their religion is the heinous crime which it commits with its citizen and for Pakistan it has been a sorry state of affairs as stories of minorities persecution and conversion surprises none of us now.

The recent story of Rinkle Kumari has forced me to ponder what are we really promoting in our society? I know many of my friends will come up and say “We are spreading Islam”, “We are converting Non Muslim into Muslim” and the list of explanation simply goes on.  What I really want to ask from my friends who come up with such explanations is “Why only we as a Muslim should have a right to spread our religion and those who are Non-Muslim are not allowed to spread their religion. Shouldn’t Non-Muslim be also given the right to spread their religion in the same manner as we do”?

Now lets focus on the Conversion of females from minorities because we Love someone. If it’s only about two individuals wanting to get married to each other because they share the bond of LOVE ; then immediate conversion just by reciting Kalimah infront of some Imam of Masjid should not be accepted as legal by any means. It will be much better that before this exercise is done ; if the main purpose of any individual is to tie a knot because they love each other and want to get married; then they should be willing to go through more steps of conversion rather than only reciting a Kalima infront of Imam of Masjid and then getting married which in the end creates furore in the minorities communities as an act of satisfying their lust by Muslim majority of Pakistan.

According to me it will be better if we can initiate a proper ; detailed and more transparent exercise which must be followed whereby when any female of minority religion wants to convert ; an Imam of Masjid must contact not only the parents of that female but also the male parents ; and convey to them the desire of the couple to not only convert but also to get married . A proper documentation must be done where by ; consent of families must be taken on a legal document ; and if both families agrees with mutual consent that they have no issues if the female partner converts than a conversion should be proceeded by Imam of Masjid which should involve rather a period of  more atleast two years where that female should be provided with an opportunity to get a deep insight knowledge of Islam and after she has attained that much knowledge as is required by her then Imam of Masjid should contact parents of both families and if that female wishes to embrace Islam then only conversion of her should be accepted as legal with the consent of both families .

Moving over; it’s time for our Muslim scholars to stand up and address the issues that concerns minorities and their rights. It’s simply not enough to say our Constitution gives right and even Islam gives right when all of us know that the reality differs from it.

The recent ruling by the Chief Justice of Supreme Court on 18th May 2012; that in presence of Article 20 of the constitution no fresh legislation is needed in an ideal world should have settled the dust but the court along with Government and Muslim scholars need to realize that they must do all what they can do to address the concern of minorities communities in Pakistan. They along with our Scholars must understand the need to make Conversion not only legal but also ensure that a proper detail procedure should be followed in order to address concerns of minorities living in Pakistan.

Its time for us to stand up for minorities living in our countries and do everything necessary for them to address their concerns and spread the message of respect for Human values and Love among our brothers and sisters from all religion.

Understanding – The Key in Your Relationships with Your Loved Ones.

A relation is a blend of one’s soul with another; a treasure that should be cherished; a comradery that should be appreciated; a journey that should be lived with and above all a bond that should have strong foundation of Trust.

We go through a lot of leaps and bounds in our relations which make our life really special. These are the real contributors for us to achieve anything in this Life.
When two souls decide to become one; be it with any name they wish to give; to align themselves with it; it’s the heart which brings them close to each other. It allows them to look in them what others can’t see. Truly you feel Special in those circumstances that there’s someone who looks upon you as your own ; who is out there to listen to you when you need to speak to someone ; who is willing to understand your point of view which no one in this whole world can. Those are the moments when Life takes us to paradise; that paradise which is full of love; care and affection; indeed we thinking each other as an angel in our life.

As the time passes by; our expectation starts rising as well. We feel to contribute much more than we really can do in each other’s life. Initially when the energy levels are high we feel great about every push; every motivation and every concern which we get from our loved ones. Then a point comes in each other’s life instead of feeling great about each other we start developing the feel of itching for each other; there may be physical distance; time issues and a feeling may arose that an intrusion has been made into our lives and we are not a free bird any more . We feel like living a life not what we want but what other’s want. Suddenly; we start raising suspicions whether it was worth to ever have a relation with that person. We go on to utter words which we never meant them in the first place but what we forget that in doing so we go on and destroy all the investment we had made in a relation which we once treated it as a “ Gift from ALLAH”.

Rather than going on to destroy the relation with our stupidities; blaming one soul for all the ill wills in the relation is trying to find an easy way out for our own self and please ourselves temporarily rather than understanding that its two people with mutual consent makes the relation what it is in current moment . Both of them holds the destiny and power to remove ills will and ensure they do not lose it in a cheap way in the moment of anger ; all the respect , love and care they had for each other for all the time they gave to each other being part of each other journey as their “ Go To Person”.

The real measure of each of us in a relation is known in the ability of each of us to let its freshness & importance remain in our lives. Our ability to remain calm in the situation and understand each other during those times is what, which will make us reap the fruits of our relation in our lives for the life long experience with each other; what it really deserves. What we must not forget is that when promised to hold each other hand; we did made a decision that we will face this world and its hardships together.

Try not judging or Losing your Cherished relationship due to one bad moment; as Lifetime relations deserves a better Response from You. Give them the real due it deserves and reap its worthy Blessings in your life Forever with Care and affection :).

Purity of Soul Leads to Divine Love

One day; the veil may be lifted and you may realize that what you had dream was never a reality. That will be the day; your character will be tested. You will be needing to reply to yourself whether the Palace you built on had foundations or not. No one will be there holding you and giving you comfort but your own Soul.

People may betray; but Love never betrays nor do the Soul. The Soul knows it that what purity your Love holds and when the Soul knows the purity of Love which one holds; nothing in this world deters that Love ; such is the feeling of that Love that we eventually feel to be surrounded by Angels with whole world as “Heaven”.

The tear’s that flows from your eyes is just the reflection of your Soul speaking to your heart. It reflects the purity of your Love and how it connects to your Soul. It not only cleanses down your Soul but it goes on to give you Hope; but it rejuvenates you in the destination of Love.

Everything in this world will come to an end. The castle may also get demolished but its feeling and the purity with which it was built upon shall never be put in a position as to be questioned by any one. And if you really built it upon with purity, love, care and affection, then there’s no storm in this world which can wither away the effort you have put in to build it.

Built only those Palaces which can be cherished forever in Life with love care and affection. Even if you don’t get what you had desired at least you can say to yourself that “I Did My Best “. And “I Did My Best “, shall not be for the person; but for the most sacred feeling of Love.
