Come, Rain.. !

by Khanum

Anas, a fellow blogger wrote this beautiful piece Of reflections, shards and broken hearts ! I had this piece written months ago, I am publishing it to compliment his write up.

Half way to the home , the pregnant clouds finally gave a loud cackle and water began to pour down drop by drop. It’s nighttime around 11:30. The long empty roads leading his way home now looked maddeningly exotic. He  speeded up the car and had himself  inside the safe shelter within few minutes as if someone awaited him at home.

But no one.

An hour or so, He went to bed after watching the show of a few crystal drops dancing on the lawn..

Body tired of all day’s fatigue yearned for comfort but something in his  heart started to lure him out in the dark pitch. He got out of bed and slipped out of the room.

Rain is a such a monster , a demon of memories and a haunting pleasure. It begins to inject you with random thoughts. There are thousands of things you feel like doing when it’s raining. Thousands of places you travel to in your mind, thousands of smiles you pass just thinking of something maybe a time gone by. And the madness keeps growing louder with each thundering sound the skies make, you want to stay there with the rain despite of the chill you are feeling on your cold n’ bare feet.

It often rains in his dreams. And It has been told rain is a blessing. When it pours down, we should pray as much as possible.

He raised his hands and whispered the supplication but the sounds of the rain are so alluring and beautiful on the ears that soon he began to loose focus  and  wished to do nothing more, but just sit there on the porch, watch the night go by , watch his toes turning purple, maybe imagine someone on the other side and just consume the beautiful sounds of the rain that spoke thousands beautiful things.

Maybe get wet, maybe open his mouth and sip in few drops. Maybe  make paper boats , maybe sleep right there for a change or maybe ……

just maybe

Tonight, he thinks of  Her  &  no one else..with purest of heart ever.

It was just a harmless cat, Sir.

by Khanum

Assalamo alaikum Wa rehmatullahi Wabarakatuhu .

Few days back,  It was really scary. Our cat who lived all her life forcefully with us and then gave birth to 4 kittens suddenly decided to die. She was falling here and there and I noticed what made it worse was I didnt know what the heck was going on with her.  After painful night Around fajr time, she began to grab her kittens by the neck one by one and pose to bite. I couldn’t decide she was dragging them to somewhere or killing them ? And this latter thought had me out of my mind! I woke up everyone. And someone said she has gone mad, she wont survive we have to take the kittens away from her. In that moment I really thought its over. My cousin and I  got in my room, shoved our heads in pillow and began to cry cause It was absolutely  certain that within few hours she’ll be dead or if not dead then she’ll be taken far away. I decided to simply fall asleep to wake up and find everything as if it was just a dream.

Around evening I woke up and there she was!!! Still alive and even better.

This goes out for my stupid neighbour. He  had mixed some weird pills most probably sleeping ones in milk and fed it to my cat. He did the same with another cat that happens to be the mum of my cat. (I know you cud be laughing but I am serious) so after drinking that milk my cat went high on sleeping mode falling here and there with her body going limp and eyes going up. When I came to know of his horrific and cruel act, My expression was of utmost horror. This was the cat that didn’t belong to any SUPER breed or royal breed but still it was a cat, a body with a soul like me, like you like him!! How can someone with a soul murder another one then  ? I don’t get it.

People need to respect the fact that “life” may it be small or big, matters to Allah alot, shows of brutality that too on innocent living beings is just… Allah! Inhumane and a big sin.

Please, love animals. Learn to share the world with them and spread the word. They may be voiceless but are you too ?
