Dua

by Khanum

 

Allah… Mujhe esa bana dey ke Mujh pe teri Jannat bs wajib hojaye.

Kisi ko mujhse dunya mai koi gham nah aye.

Mere dil ko emaan se emaan pe emaan tak qaim rakh. Bey emaani ke kufr se hamesha bacha..

Mujhe tujh se  mohabbat hai Allah Kareem, Muje taufeeq ata farma main isey aur mazboot banaon.

 

Ameen.

“The greatest gift you can give to someone is the purity of your attention.” -Richard Moss

by Khanum

It’s a strange feeling when you have tons to say but you can’t utter a single word. It’s  even a double fold strangest moment when you have many to hold onto, but none to understand your sorrow.

I’m wordless but  – I have feelings to pour down on this digital page. My friend’s father passed away yesterday. . Today was the funeral.

What can you possibly say to a friend who is standing still over her father’s dead body – not even crying , not even complaining, not even uttering a single word or sigh…You become worried she might faint , she might hurt herself from the inside that she may collapse. In that strangest and most painful moment, you ask her to cry a little, shed a tear just one or two. Just something that can lessen her burden.  And then then when she starts to cry some tears of love for her beloved father – you can’t either see that. You beg her to stop.

It’s always like that. It has always been like that.  Hard very hard but at the same time natural to let go of someone you dearly loved. Whether it’s a friend or some stranger, we all come to learn that the rules of this world go straight and fair for everyone. I have attended 3 funerals in my life so far in my 23 years of  life and I simply hope and pray I never get to see more funerals.. I’m in constant worry over who would I see leaving this world next. .

Yes There have been many happy times we have shared, many occasions We were not able to live together anymore. But that’s okay. Being with people that too with friends in times of despair is another kind of bond. This post is a simple request, to ask you to gift 1 minute of your life to her father. Join your hands together, raise them up before God and say a word of prayer for Waheed Uncle.  May His Soul Rest in Peace. May Allah swt forgive his sins, and give him A high and a wonderful place in Jannah.

Ameen. Suma Ameen.

My Muslim Brother…And my photography syndrome!

by Khanum

It’s another interesting day of Ramadan at home. One that is about to come to an end. Just few more minutes to go before we break our fast with the Call to prayer. Mum busy in the kitchen. Family set on table, praying. I stopped by to post few photos I took earlier today at home.

I was lucky to get a hold of my cousin brother while  performing his worship duties. Since It’s a rule for Men in Islam to offer their 5 times prayers in Masjid. it’s a rare sight at home to see any male member (either young or old) to be praying at house. This cousin of mine – after praying Jumu’ah in Masjid – probably decided to do some more worship at home. Such a noble soul these days. I luckily was free loaded with FUJIFILM. And you know there’s a saying, Where’s there’s Khanum with a camera, there’s a way!

   here I was caught with my camera! hence:  He went shy…..

 The last one I admit was hard to get. I had to ask him to sit properly. He would complaint. Then my mother in the background would say, ‘She’s the photographer of the house. Obey!’ hence, The Muslim Brother photography mission successful.

What’s Your EXCUSE?

by Khanum

I make it a rule for my posts , not to use images or material which is not owned by me. Therefore all the pictures that you guys have seen so far were my photography. However, This time I am willing to make an exception. An Exception to make you all aware of the commitment and Allegiance of  a Monotheist to His Lord.  Either You’re Muslim, Christian , A Hindu or a Jew. Just Look at these people, how punctual and sincere they are. Isn’t that enough of a lesson to learn?

See! Its not that hard to pray when you have the heart to kneel before Him.

Muslims who prefer sitting idle and skip prayers should feel motivated by these pictures. I didn’t make the effort to copy these here and put a post together just to humiliate you. It’s like a work of Art.  I reach to you – to help you reach Him. 🙂

The category who do pray 5 times a day but skip some of them should make a note of this and never miss their Salah ever again. Its our Allegiance to our Creator! My grandmother offered her last prayer on her death bed, and she could barely even breathe or move. She kept her Allegiance to Him even then. Now that’s real love.

And finally those who are already on the path of sincerity, and way ahead of me, Should feel proud of them and continue their routine. I salute you people!!!

theres simply no shame in stopping by and offering a prayer even while you are at a mall doing shopping or sitting at a wedding with your best clothes on. Either you’r travelling in a rikshaw, a car,  or just walking on foot. Be brave enough to stop your world for a minute or two and bow down to prayer.

For those who bow down to Him can stand up to anything in this world. !!!

“Oh you who believe! Seek help through patience and Salah. Truly, Allah is with those who are patient.” (2:153)
