Message of Eid - The Caliph and the New Clothes

The little boy came running to his mother crying with a request.
"Jarir and Mughiz have both got new clothes for Eid. Can I have some
new clothes as well?" The mother picked him up and wiped his tears.

Their mother, Fatima bint Abdul Malik(RA), was no ordinary woman. Her
father, grandfather and each of her four brothers were at one time or
another Caliph and leader of the Muslim Ummah. In fact, her own
husband was the present Caliph, Umar ibn Abdul Aziz(RA) – who ruled
the world's largest empire that stretched from the Atlantic to the
Indian oceans. She promised him that she would check with his father
to see if he could have new clothes for Eid.

When Umar ibn Abdul Aziz returned home, his wife related her sons
request to him. The Caliph had a pained look in his eyes. "Fatima, you
know how much I value my children, but all the money I have is in
front of you", he said motioning towards the sparsely furnished hut.

Though a Caliph, Umar took care to live honestly and did much to
ensure justice. Fatima agreed with her husband, but she said that
maybe it would be possible to buy very cheap clothes for him and he
would just be happy with something new to wear. The tears have left
satins on his cheeks. Finally, the Caliph, saddened by the plight,
agreed and wrote a letter to his treasurer requesting that his pay be
advanced a month early so that he could buy his child something to
wear on Eid.

But the honest and pious Caliph had an equally honest treasurer who
wrote a letter in reply to the Caliph. The Caliph read the letter with
tears flowing from his eyes: "Amir Ul-Mumineen, I have great respect
for you and I trust and obey you completely. However, if you could
guarantee to me that you will live through the next month and do your
service to the people (which will entitle you to your pay) then the
money can be advanced to you. If you cannot give the assurance of your
life, then how can the treasury pay you and why are you taking the
rights of the poor,orphans and widows onto your shoulders?"

Caliph Umar ibn Abdul Aziz realised his mistake. Fatima bint Abdul
Malik, washed the old clothes. The day of Eid arrived and the whole
area of Damascus was buzzing with joy and celebration with people clad
in their new attires. Caliph Umar ibn Abdul Aziz also set out for the
Eid Prayer holding the hand of his son, both father and son wearing
their clean old clothing. The young boy's face shone brightly, as he
walked alongside his father, convinced that the eternal pleasure and
comforts of Jannah(Paradise) are by far superior to the comforts of
this temporary world.

One has to wonder if they were made from the same dust as us. Once we
(Muslims) were kings on this Earth, but it wasn't because we were
large in number that we were respected. It wasn't because we were
powerful that we were victorious. It wasn't because we were successful
that we were admired. It wasn't because our women were beautiful that
they were treated with honour and dignity. It wasn't because we were
intelligent that our example was emulated. It was all due to the faith
of Islam. Sometimes, it's worthwhile reflecting on how far we've
fallen so we know how high we need to climb.

Whoever controls his belly controls all good deeds

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Hunger of the Salaf

It is reported from Ibn Sîrîn – Allâh have mercy on him – that a man
once said to Ibn 'Umar – Allâh be pleased with him:

Can we offer you some Jawârish? He inquired, "And what is Jawârish?"
The man replied, "It is something that will help you digest your food
if you get too full up." Ibn 'Umar said, "I have not eaten my fill for
four months – not because I cannot find food, but because I have lived
with people who used to eat their fill at times and go hungry at

Abû Dâwûd, Al-Zuhd article 325.

It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basrî – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

By He in whose Hand is my soul, I have lived amongst people who never
ordered food to be prepared for themselves If [food] was presented to
one of them, he would eat, otherwise, he would be silent; and he would
not care if it was hot or cold.

Abû Nu'aym, Hilyatu Al-Awliyâ` 6:270.

It is also reported that he said:

By Allâh, I have lived amongst people who when taking lunch, if they
were about to be full, would stop eating.


It is reported that Al-Fudayl b. 'Ayyâd – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

Two things harden the heart, too much talking and too much food.

Ibn Hibbân Al-Bustî, Rawdatu Al-'Uqalâ` p45, Matba'ah Al-Sunnah
Al-Muhammadîyah 1949.

It is reported that Mâlik b. Dînâr – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

It is unfitting for a believer that his belly becomes his greatest
concern, or that his desires dominate him.

Ibn Abî Al-Dunyâ, Al-Jû' (The Book of Hunger) article 105.

It is also reported that he said:

Whoever controls his belly controls all good deeds.

Ibid. article 99.

It is reported that the Tâbi'î (Successor) 'Uqbah b. Wassâj – Allâh
have mercy on him – was once at a wedding reception where many kinds
of dishes were offered and people started trying one dish after
another. He started to cry, and said:

"I found the first part of this Ummah fearing all this upon
themselves." And he ate only from one dish.

Ibid. article 261.

It is reported that Muhammad b. Sîrîn – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

A man from the companions of the Prophet – praise and peace of Allâh
be upon him – would sometimes go three days without finding anything
to eat, so he would grill some animal skin and eat that. If he
couldn't find anything at all, he would [tie] a rock to himself to
straighten his back.

Ibid. article 61.

1. Don't sleep during the day and pray all night. By doing this you are converting the day into night and the night into day, which is not the purpose of fasting.
2. Avoid being lazy and inactive during the day.
3. Don't waste time playing games during the day. Rather, please Allah by increasing in your worship of him..
4. Don't ask your wife to spend Ramadan in the Kitchen. Eat something light and quick. This way you'll give her more time for worship.
5. Spend the last 10 days worshiping Allah rather than trying to prepare for Eid! A night that is better than a thousand months is in these last 10 nights. You can't afford to miss this.
6. Dont stay awake the whole night. Your body has a right over you, and when it wants rest, then rest.
7. Avoid excessive socializing after Taraweeh
8. Avoid shopping a lot in Ramadan.
9. Don't eat all night.
10. Don't loiter around at night rather than worshiping Allah.
11. Eid doesn't require loads of preparation. Don't fall into this trap! Keep it simple, and it will be blessed.

Allah has blessed us with the Month of Ramadan, So make the most of it... in shaa Allah

Khwaab to sab ke hote hain

yahan apni apni bari par sab hansty hain sab roty hain

dil to sab ka hota hai dukh bhi sab ke hote hain

kuch ashk dilon pe girte hain kuch mitti main mill jaate hain

kuch lafz ada ho jaate hain kueh honton main sil jaate hain

mana k adhure rehty hain par khwaab to sab ke hote hain

kuch kho kar bhi pa lete hain

kuch log bht yad ate hain

wo pal bhar ki narazgiyan aur maan bhi jana pal bhar main

ab khud se jab bhi roothun to kuch log bohut yaad ate hain

Whom are we pleasing? ...

Hadhrat Mu`aawiya (radhiAllahu anhu) once wrote to Hadhrat Aisha (radhiAllaahu anha), asking for advice. She replied:
“Assalaamu Alaik, 
Verily I heard Rasulullaah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) saying: ‘That person who seeks the pleasure of Allaah Ta`ala, when the creation may be displeased, Allaah Ta`ala will be sufficient for him against the plots (and harms) of people. That person who pleases the people, whilst courting the displeasure of Allaah Ta`ala, then Allaah Ta`ala hands him over to the people (i.e he is deprived of Divine Assistance).’ 

Was Salaam Alaik” [Mishkaat Shareef]

Words!!! To hell with you....Talaaq...full of life changing emotions

"Talaaq to day rahay ho Nazar-e-qehar ke saath
Jawani bhi meri lauta do Mehar ke saath"  [Mahjabeen Bano (MeenaKumari)]

(You are divorcing me with rage in your eyes
Return to me, also, my youth along with the alimony!)

As soon as I read these verses, I uttered "Kya baat hai, kya dard hai (Wow wonderful words, how much pain they resemble in them)". Suddenly a thought came to me that, how important is each of the utterance which comes out from us, humans is....The one who says these words Talaq"..practically goes through it. It feels like you have just invoked an Alarm bell in the darbaar of Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala.

Today I read a News which was telling that divorces have increased among Software Industry people, then again google took me to Meena kumari's wiki biography whose touchy life story ending with the above verses really made me emotional and think about the wisdom around the "Talaq".

According to Ibn Maajah, The Messenger of Allaah said, “One of you may utter a word of what pleases Allaah without him knowing how excellent the word is and for which he will continue to attain Allaah’s pleasure until the day he will meet Him. And someone among you may utter a word that displeases Allaah without him knowing how grievous the word is and on account of which he will continue to earn Allaah’s wrath until the day he will meet Him.”

With this instance I felt how close are we with Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, that not only specific words, each word that we utter, speak, How Allah is listening to everything. Following verses of Surah Kahf say more about this:
16. And indeed We have created man, and We know what his own self whispers to him. And We are nearer to him than his jugular vein (by Our Knowledge).
17. (Remember!) that the two receivers (recording angels) receive (each human being after he or she has attained the age of puberty), one sitting on the right and one on the left (to note his or her actions)
18. Not a word does he (or she) utter, but there is a watcher by him ready (to record it).
19. And the stupor of death will come in truth: "This is what you have been avoiding!"
20. And the Trumpet will be blown, that will be the Day whereof warning (had been given) (i.e. the Day of Resurrection).
21. And every person will come forth along with an (angel) to drive (him), and an (angel) to bear witness.
22. (It will be said to the sinners): "Indeed you were heedless of this, now We have removed your covering, and sharp is your sight this Day!"
23. And his companion (angel) will say: "Here is (this Record) ready with me!"

May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'la give us ability (salahiyat) to speak or utter only that which takes  us to Jannah(Heaven), and save our tongue from uttering anything which takes us to Jahannum(hell).

An emotional way of thinking, in actual its our own earning:
[Translations are taken from another blog]
Waqt Ne Kiya Kya Haseen Sitam
Tum Rahe Na Tum, Hum Rahe Na Hum

What beautiful words!!! The word 'sitam' means torture or punishment, and the English word 'oppression' gets closest to its meaning. But the adjective used to describe it is 'Haseen'. Haseen means handsome/beautiful. The reason why such punishment is praised because the singer has accepted the fate, which is the changing times in which we all live. Now both of us are different from what we used to be. You are not the same person and I have also changed!!

Ek Raah Par Chal Ke Do Qadam
After walking only a few steps on the same path.

Waqt Ne Kiya Kya Haseen Sitam
Tum Rahe Na Tum, Hum Rahe Na Hum

Jaayenge Kahan, Soojhta Nahin
Chal Pade Magar Raasta Nahin
Kya Talaash Hai, Kuchh Pata Nahin
Bun Rahe Hain Din, Khwaab Dum-Ba-Dum

The destination is not clear and it's now become difficult to decide, as we don't know where to go? But still we have started walking albeit there is no path
What are we searching for? We don't know, and now we are slowly making (knitting - the correct translation of the word 'Bun') our days with dreams in every breath we breathe. I interpret this line as if the singer is day-dreaming about the destination.
Waqt Ne Kiya Kya Haseen Sitam
Tum Rahe Na Tum, Hum Rahe Na Hum 

Most of the times we tend to think like this after some time but...

Aye Kaash ke ye hum samzen..Alaas!! If we could understand

Insaan bahut naadaan hai. Agar yeh apni marzi par chalega to halaakat ke siva kuch bhi na payega. Na hi woh apne balboote par apni duniya bana sakta hai na hi aakhirat. Isme buniyadi kamzoriyan hai. Insan jaldbaaz hai. Apni jaldbaazi ki wajah se galat faisle karta hai. yeh jaahil hai "Innahu kaana zalooman jahoola".

Agar yeh Allah ki taraf jhuk jata hai to uski duniya aur aakhirat dono ban jati hai. Jis Allah ne insan ko duniya mein bheja hai usne zindgi guzarne ka ek tarika bhi diya hai. Usi ne maut ke baad ek ANJAAM rakhkha hai.

A Hijabi Muslimah's fight

A Hijabi Muslimah said :
When I Go To Market And I See All These Kind Of Tight Jeans, Short Skirts And indecent Clothes
Shaitan Comes And Whispers To Me   All  Girls Are Wearing Those Clothes Except You !!
Live Your Life As Girls in Your Age Are Doing!

I just ignore His Whispers And Remember This Ayah (verse of Quran):  
“But As For Him Who Feared Standing Before His Lord, And Restrained Himself From Evil Desires, And Lusts. Verily, Paradise Will Be His Home”.

I Also Remember This Hadith  Teachings of Prophet Mohammad Sallallaho A’laihi wasallam
’Ό Clothed Yet Naked Women Who Will Never Enter Jannah Or Smell its fragrance.

At That Point,
I Control My Desires And I Teach My Nafs (Soul) That Jannah is Way More Precious Than A Cheap Piece Of Cloth.

Dear Sisters,
Surround Yourself With The Great Meanings Of That Ayah in This Time Of Temptations, Raise Your Nafs (soul) To Control its Desires.

Ya Allah!!! Turner Of Hearts, Make Our Hearts Firm On Your Deen And Save Us from The Evil Of Fitnah, Ameen Ya Rabbul Alameen

Listen carefully! O My heart please know your status !!!

Let me start my conversation with what my heart is murmuring at this moment:
Ajeeb Daastaan Hai Yeh
Kahan Shuru Kahan Khatam
Yeh Manzile Hai Kaunsi
Na Voh Samajh Sake Na Hum

Thought generally refers to any mental or intellectual activity involving an individual's subjective consciousness. It can refer either to the act of thinking or the resulting ideas or arrangements of ideas. Similar concepts include cognition, sentience, consciousness, and imagination. Because thought underlies almost all human actions and interactions, understanding its physical and metaphysical origins, processes, and effects has been a longstanding goal of many academic disciplines including, among others, biology, philosophy, psychology, and sociology.  [Wikipedia]

Thinking allows beings to make sense of or model the world in different ways, and to represent or interpret it in ways that are significant to them, or which accord with their needs, attachments, objectives, plans, commitments, ends and desires. Thought is that which enables a person to grasp concepts dealing with one's environment.

On a funny note: Thought for some is only a “Qayaal” of “Tum ko dekha to ye qayaal aaya”.  Or “Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Me Qayaal aata hai”.

From the above things mentioned I wanted to convince my heart that, “Thought / Qayaal, Samajh / Understanding” are related to Heart rather than the Mind, which is also evident in Quran.

“Heart” in Arabic is commonly referred “Qalb”, without going into deep Quranic knowledge where it also referred as “Al-Fuad”, “Sadr”, “Al-Lubb” etc with different instances.

Imam al-Raghib in his Mufradaat says that “qalb” literally means to turn something around on its face, or to flip something over, such as the turning over of a cloth, or the turning of a person when they turn away from the direction they were going in to another direction. Hence, its derivatives all express some form of this flipping or turning over, so inqilaab as a verb can be used in the Qur’an for “turning on their heels”, or changing your direction to retreat and flee from battle, or as a noun to mean the act of overthrowing someone, where a sense of a flip in power or revolution (literally) is expressed. It is also used in its passive sense to express being turned, rather re-turned, to Allah, Most High, after death. [Taken from]
Now you see, you are something which turns. [To The Heart]

Don't think that your heart is 'strong'. The heart is a vulnerable fool. It turns easily. That's why it's called ‘qalb’ (that which turns). – Yasmin Mogahed

In their hearts is a disease; and Allah has increased their disease and grievous is the penalty they (incur) because they are false (to themselves).(2:10)

Our beloved Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam also warned:
“Listen carefully! there is a piece of flesh in man’s body, if it is healthy then the whole being is healthy and if it is corrupted then the whole being is corrupted. Beware! That piece of flesh is the heart.”(Bukhari)

But there is one important question that is “Do you know what kind of Heart Allah wants?”

“The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail, But only he (will prosper) that brings to Allah a sound heart.” Quran (26:89)

"Who feared (Allah) Most Gracious unseen and brought a heart turned in devotion (to Him). (50:33)

"Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah, for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction.'' (13.28)

Yes, Allah wants a heart – which is sound, an Allah fearing, which turned in devotion to him, which is always in remembrance of Allah.

How to do we get that?

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says:
‘He sent down water on you from heaven, to purify you thereby and to put away from you the defilement of Satan, and to strengthen your hearts and to confirm your feet.’ (8: 11)

This ayah is about Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala strengthening the hearts of Sahaba, in the battle of badr. Badr, for which Allah himself says as distinguishing days, he only strengthened the hearts.

Similarly,  Ambiya(a.s)  made dua for their heart as follows:
"Our Lord!" (They say) "Let not our hearts deviate now after Thou hast guided us but grant us mercy from Thine own Presence; for Thou art the Grantor of bounties without measure. (3:8)

Our beloved Prophet also has taught dua’s practically:
Narrated by Umm Salamah (Radia Allahu ‘Anha) that, The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) made this Du’a the most:
”Allah Humma, Ya Muqallib Al-Quloob, Thabbit Qalbi ‘Alaa Deenik,”
“O Turner of the hearts, make my heart firm upon Your Religion.”

The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said:
“Verily, the hearts of all the sons of Adam are between the two fingers out of the fingers of the Compassionate Lord as one heart. He turns that to any (direction) He likes.

Then The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said:
Allāhumma Musarrif Al-Qulūbi Sarrif Qulūbana ‘Alā Tā’atika
“O Allah, Turner of the hearts, direct our hearts to your obedience”    - Saheeh Muslim

MUSARRIF/SARRIF: Both of these words are from the same root which has many meanings. Of those meanings are, to turn, to divert, to turn from another direction, to avert, and to change. The meaning of this word in this du’a is to turn or direct. How is this word different from “Muqallib Al-Qulūb?” There are a few differences linguistically, but the essence of both supplications is the same. Qallaba, just likeSarrafa, means to change and turn the direction of something. The linguistic difference is that Qallaba points more to constant moving and turning about, while Sarrafa points to changing of the direction. When we make this Du’a, we are asking Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) to Sarrif, turn and direct our hearts to His Obedience, while in the other du’a, we are asking Allah to Thabbit, make our hearts firm on Islam, and not qallib because the heart is constantly changing about and turning directions.
QULŪB: Qulūb is plural of Qalb which means the heart. Qalb is the general word for heart. It comes from the root which means something that turns around and about and upside down, as mentioned above. It is the nature of hearts that they are constantly changing.
TĀ’ATIKATā’ah means to obey and to submit. The beauty of this word is that it not only means to submit one’s self, it specifically means to submit willingly, voluntarily and on one’s own free will. We are asking Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) to direct our hearts to willingly submit and obey Him.

"Keep praying for what you are seeking. Impossibility and possibility are merely concepts of your mind, to Allah nothing is impossible."

Ideas are a Dime a Dozen. People Who Implement Them are Priceless

“Ideas are a dime a dozen. People who implement them are priceless.” What a great quote by Mary Kay Ash, and so true! The world is full of incredible ideas that never go anywhere because great ideas are useless without someone full of passion to implement them.

I realize that implementing an idea can be intimidating, but taking that first step forward is the most important thing you can do to get your idea off the ground. Analyzing an idea is an important pre-step, but one of the biggest stumbling blocks people face is the temptation to over-analyze in an attempt to solve for every potential problem they might face, even if it only has a .03 percent likelihood of ever happening. Recognize that in the beginning stage of your idea there is no possible way to truly predict exactly what the future will hold because it is impossible to have every future fact you need to know. In the process of moving toward implementing your idea, variables around you will begin to change, and as they do, new facts will always be coming to light, which will help you to pivot your ideas in the right direction. Go into it knowing that your idea is going to morph and change drastically before it reaches its true fulfillment. All great ideas do, and that is what you want.

Years ago I went to meet with several large customers to see how our products were performing for them. Each shared their satisfaction with our services, but went on to share other problems they were facing, hoping that I might have a solution for them. As I met with each client and listened to their struggles, my mind began to formulate additions to our system design that were far broader in scope than my original ideas had ever been. The next thing I knew, voila, my original idea had morphed and become bigger and better than ever before. Had I not taken steps forward to implement my original idea, I would never have gotten to that moment when the original idea morphed into something genius!
As you get going, never be afraid to share your ideas with others to get feedback. As an angel investor when I ask people what feedback they have gotten from their peers on their ideas, I often get the response, “I haven’t shared it with them yet because I am too afraid someone might steal my idea.” My answer to that statement is always the same, “As an entrepreneur I always felt that if someone else out there had the initiative to take my idea and get it implemented first, then more power to them!” The reality is that most people may get excited about your idea, but very few of them would actually be willing to do all the work it would take to implement it.
Great ideas are born by the minute. At some point you have to decide to stop talking about your ideas and take the first step with enough confidence to carry you through to the next step. With each step forward new doors will open and your idea will expand. Keep your eyes and ears open and never be afraid to share your idea with others to get feedback. Ideas grow best when they are exposed to a lot of other people’s ideas and input on a regular basis. Never forget to stay passionate about your ideas. It’s that passion that will carry you through the difficult times that inevitably come along the path of implementation. Your passion will be contagious and it will draw others to you that can help you on your journey to becoming one of those priceless few who don’t just talk about it, they do it!
This article was shared by one of my friend, so true. Priceless(great) ideas can be implemented by priceless(great) people only.  Some thoughts wandered on my mind while reading this, wordings of  our Sheikh Ibraheem Devla "Khush Kismat hain woh log jinhe Allah khair ke kaamon ke liye istamaal kare, isliye Allah se hamesha maango ke 'Aye Allah hame khair ke phailne/phailaane ka baayis bana'" then he continued "Bad kismat hain woh log jinko Allah gumrahi aur badi ke kaamon me mubtila karde, isliye hamesha maango ke 'Aye Allah hame badi ke phailne ka baayis na banaa, hame gumrahon me se na banaa'". That is 'Those  are very fortunate people whom Allah makes to do good and uses for good, and those are very unfortunate people whom Allah makes to do bad and uses for bad, so every time ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'aala that 'O Allah, please give me taufeek(ordain or allow or make oneself) to do good and become zariya(way or getting used) of good things (making, happening), O Allah, please don't make me do bad things and get involved in bad things, or getting used(zariya) by to spread bad things'.
             Another thing is “Man jadda wajada” it means whoever seriously /sincerely (do things) he/she will get it or simple whoever sincerely does will get. “Man Jadda Wajada” is an arabian motto “…Someone who are really serious and persistent about his/her dreams, will succeed….”.

May Allah subhanahu wa ta'aala give us everything that is required to fulfill our valid dreams. Ameen.

True story of Zayeefa

Likha hai Ek ZAIFA Thi, ke jo MAKKAH mein rehti thi
Wo in batoon ko sunti thi, magar khamoosh rehti thi

Wo sunti thi MUHAMMED(SAW) hai, koi HASHIM Gharane me
Wo kehta hai KHUDA bas EK hai, saare zamaane mein

Wo sunti thi 'HUBUL ki 'LAAT' ki tazleel karta hai
Wo apne haq ke farmane ki youn tameel karta hai

Wo sunti thi jo uske saath hai wo hai ghulaam uska
Musalman ho hi jaata hai jo sunta hai kalaam uska

Likha hai wo zaifa ek din KA'BA mein ja pahunchi
HUBUL ke paaon par sar rakh ke usne ye dua mangi
Mein tujhko poojti hoon aur khuda bhi tujhko kehti hoon
Bada Afsos hai jo aaj kal mein ranj sehti hoon
Wo gham ye hai MUHAMMED(SAW) hai koi Hashim Gharane mein
Wo kehta hai KHUDA bas EK hai saare zamane mein
Mita do uski hasti ko mile tujko inaam uska
Jigar chalni hua jata hai sun sun kar kalaam uska

Dua kar ke uthi sajde se aur wo apne ghar aayi
Samjhti thi ye dil me ab meri ummeed bar aayi

Zaifa ko khushi thi ab HUBUL bijli gira dega
MUHAMMED(SAW) to MUHAMMED(SAW) sathiyon ko bhi mita dega

Magar kuch din guzarne par na jab ummed bar aayi
Dua kar ke hubul se apne dil mein khoob pachtai

Gharaz tarkeeb usne sochli ye khud hi ghar aa kar
Ke chodongi ye basti mein rahongi aur kaheen ja kar

Gharaz ek din subah ko usne apne ek gathri li
Nikal kar ghar se apne aur darwaze pe aa baithi

Zaifa sochti thi ab koi mazdoor milta hai
Usey ye kya khabar thi ek khuda ka NOOR milta hai

Fariza subeh ka karke ada sarkare do aalam
Chale jate the KA'BA ki taraf wo rehmat e aalam

Jalu mein aap ke shams o khamar maloom hote the
paye tasleem sajde mein shajar maloom hote the

Zaifa muntazir mazdoor ki baithi thi ghabrai
Yaka yak samne se chand si surat nazar aayi
Zaifa ne kaha, "baita yahan aana bata kya naam hai tera."
Kaha, "mazdoor hoon amman bata kya kaam hai tera."
Kaha, "mazdoor hai gar tu, to chal gathri meri lekar,
Mein khush kardongi aye mazdoor mazdoori teri dekar."

Ye sunkar aapne gathri utha kar apne sar par li
Zaifon ki madad karna ye aadat thi paighambar(Prophet) ki

Gharaz gathri ko lekar manzil e maqsood par aayi
Kaha dil se ke aye dil ab teri ummed bar aayi
Kaha, "beta jo thi dil me tamanna ho gayi puri
MUHAMMED(SAW) to MUHAMMED(SAW) saathiyon se hogayi duri."

Lagi dene jo mazdoori Zaifa aapko us dam
Toh farmane lage us dam huzur e sarware aalam,
"Ye koi kaam hai amman mein lon ab jiski mazdoori.
Koi gar aur qidmat ho to wo bhi mein karon puri."

Ye farmate hoye ki aapne jane ki tayyari
Zaifa se ijazat chahte the rehmat e baari

Zaifa ne kaha, "baita zara thairo chale jana.
Mujhe ek baat kehni hai zara sunkar chale jana.
Yaqeen jano ke ab makkah mein jhagda hone wala hai.
Mein samjhati hoon tujhko isliye to bhola bhala hai.
Wo Makkeh mein, khabeela HASHIMI naam o laqab wale.
Wohi beta jo hain SARDAR ABDUL MUTALLIB wale.

Unheen mein ek jawan hain jo suna jata hai saher hai.
Ke is fan mein magar beta wo apne khoob maheer hai.

Wo sar hota hai jiske sukh mein ulfat bo ke rehta hai.
Jo sunta hai kalaam uska wo uska ho ke rehta hai.
Hamesha bach ke chalna usse bole koi naam uska.
Nasihat hai yahi meri na sunna tu kalaam uska."

NABI budhiya ke dil mein noor e wahdat bharne wale the
Nasihat sun rahe the jo nasihat karne wale the

Zaifa ne kaha, "baita bhala kya naam hai tera?
Tera aaghaz kya hai aur kya anjaam hai tera?

Kaha Hazrat ne budhiya se, "tujhe kya naam batlaaon!
Mein kya kaam batlaon, mein kya anjaam batlaon!
Main banda hoon khuda ka, aur mujassam NOOR EZAD hoon.
Kaha gardan jhuka kar aapne mein he MUHAMMED(SAW) hoon.
Main hoon masoom duniya mein mera dushman zamana hai.
KHUDA WAHID hai aalam mein, mujhe bas ye batana hai.
Ye sunna tha ke bas aankhon se aansu ho gaye jaari
NABI ke ishq ki ek chot(ZAKHM) si dil par lagi kaari
Zaifa ne kaha, "beta karo mushkil meri aasaan,
Main aisi JEET ke sadqe mein aisi haar ki qurbaan."
Hua phir haal bar uske jo fazle deezane bari
Zaifa ki zubaan se khud ba khud kalma hua jari... ___La iLaha iLLal-lahu. Muhammadur Rasoolullah____
