Love is here; it is the blood in my veins, my skin. I am destroyed; He has filled me with Passion. His fire has flooded the nerves of my body. Who am I ? Just my name; the rest is Him.

"I will walk a thousand leagues in falsehood, that one step of the journey may be true." – Junayd Bagdadi

The stakes are high for real prayer.
You must gamble your self
and be willing to lose.
When you have done this,
and your self shakes off
what you belived your self to be,
then no prayer remains,
only a sparkle of the eyes.
Knower and known are one.

Feed the poor, spread salam, and pray when no one is shall enter heaven easily...(hadith)
Regarding the two brothers who were lynched in Sialkot. Then know that it is a great event the likes of which cannot be found anywhere except the days of ignorance, or in the persecution of Sahaba (RA).

Through this event, know that the evidence of Allah has been set against us where we have proven to be unaware of the laws of Quran. For Allah says;

“O you who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest you harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what you have done.” Surah Hujjurat, Ayat 6.

Then why didn’t we ascertain the guilt of those who were killed without a trial? Why upon the words of few obscure men we launched ourselves against the two brothers without giving them a chance to plead innocent or guilt? Why did we decide to punish them for an alleged offense in a manner that can only be ascribed as barbaric and that is not supported by Quran? Why did our law enforcement feel no need to verify the truth or contain the situation?

Also know that with this event we have lost our right to cry out against the mushrikeens who persecute our brothers and sisters in occupied lands. It seems that a Muslim is now sufficient to persecute another Muslim in his own homeland. Clearly we have forgot the following verse;

“And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein; and the wrath and the curse of Allah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him.” Surah Nisa Ayat 93.

and the hadith of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) where he says;

“The sanctity of Muslim blood is greater for Allah than the sanctity of the Kaaba, as is his honour and his property, and thinks only good of him.”

Know that in the gravity of the sin committed, justice must prevail for us to be saved from punishment in this world or the next. That justice must be followed by true repentance on behalf of all individuals of this ummah and a promise to submit fully to the teachings of Islam.

Let this not be the time in which, when overcome by emotions, we pray to Allah against our own selves. Know that making dua against our selves will only result in increase of such events. Realize that this is, rather, a time when we are in dire need of sincere dua. Know that our only hope to rise to the pinnacle from these ashes is based on our repentance, dua and brotherhood.

We each must play the roles assigned to us by Allah. For only when we will fulfill our roles, our condition will truly change. Know that goodness from each and every member of this ummah is not a pre-requisite for the establishment of islam in this world, or the success of our nation. The requirement of perfection (or striving for it) is only demanded by some of us but the rewards thereof are shared with the masses.

Forget the old adage of; what good will it brings If I change my ways. Instead follow the lead of the companions who, in spite of less numbers, were able to inspire huge nations because of the change they brought in themselves. Look at the way Allah described the Mominon in the following verse and aim for nothing else.

“They believe in Allah and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous.” Al-Imran Ayat 114

Know that in the end, it would not matter if your nation entered jannah but it would matter if you entered jannah or not. Let us blame none but ourselves for this event and take heed from the verses of Quran. Verily it is our collective and individual sins for which we are punished in this world or the next. Let us pray for those who have been unjustly killed. Let us strive for justice to their families. And, Let us hold ourselves accountable before we are held accountable by Allah.

Never give up hope and know from the depth of your heart that this nation of Pakistan is destined for great things. Come back to Islam my brothers and sisters and know that the pleasure in obedience of Allah is greater than the pleasure in his disobedience. And finally know that strength and mercy are a promise Allah has given in exchange for Taqwa.

“Verily, in this there is a plain Message for people who worship Allah” [Surah Al-Anbiyyah, Ayat 106]
I lost all arguments what i argue with ignorants'

Tanam Farsooda jaa para
Ze Hijra Ya Rasulullah

My body is dissolving in your separation
And my soul is breaking into pieces. Ya Rasulullah!
Due to my sins, My heart is weak and becoming enticed. Ya Rasulullah!

Choon Soo’e Mun Guzar Aari
Manne Miskeen Zanaa Daari
Kunam Ja. Ya Rasulullah!

When you pass by me
Then even in my immense poverty, ecstatically,
I must sacrifice my soul on your blessed sandal. Ya Rasulullah!

Ze Jaame Hubb To Mustam
Ba Zanjeere To Dil Bustam
Nu’mi Goyam Ke Mun Bustum
Sukun Daa. Ya Rasulullah!

I am drowned in the taste of your love
And the chain of your love binds my heart.
Yet I don’t say that I know this language (of love). Ya Rasulullah!

Ze Kharda Khaish Hairaanam
Siyaa Shud Roze Isyaanam
Pashemaanam, Pashemaanam, Pashemaanam. Ya Rasulullah!

I am worried due to my misdeeds;
And I feel that my sins have blackened my heart. Ya Rasulullah!
I am in distress! I am in distress! I am in distress! Ya Rasulullah!

Choon Baazoo’e Shafaa’at Raa

Daraa Aan. Ya Rasulullah!

Ya Rasulullah! When you spread your hands to intercede for the sinners,
Then do not deprive Jaami of your exalted intercession.


bless us with your noor ya Rasul Allah. amin
There is some kiss we want with our whole lives, the touch of Spirit on the body.


lost heart

Why has the humanity been placed upon a tiny planet, in a large galaxy, and that galaxy placed within millions of others?


Because each human being carries within the most precious instrument every engineered by Allah i.e. the human heart! There are no records of where we have come from, the only record is kept within the sea of Ishq and it only grows from the mud of Adam. This marvel of Divine Engineering had to be hidden, like a treasure in depth of cosmos, away from snatching of the thieves. 

*every engineered / please read as: ever engineered

when i prostrate upon the earth it cried out,

O you who prostrate only for show!

You have ruined even me!

When i prostrate upon the earth it cried out,

Oh you of false heart filled with idols,

what value can your bowing possibly have?

Prostrate that would make the earth shake,

Are what pulpits ache for.

Faces that would shine with marks of prostration,

Where they have gone?

Hearts that would tremble in fear of Allah?

Where have they gone?

The gathering have dispered,

Those seeking You have left.

The cries of the night and dawn are no more,

Find them with a lamp in a daylight, you will not.

indeed todays life and priorities have changed as things other then Allah seems important to people. Muslims can never savor the delicious taste of worship when their hearts are devoted to a thousand other things rather than being solely devoted to Allah.

Do remember this faqir in your prayers

Jazak Allah
A mouse was in constant distress because of its fear of the cat. A magician took pity on it and turned it into a cat. But then it became afraid of the dog.

So the magician turned it into a dog. Then it began to fear the panther, so the magician turned it into a panther. Whereupon it was full of fear for the hunter.

At this point, the magician gave up. He turned it into a mouse again saying, "Nothing I do for you is going to be of any help because you have the heart of a mouse."

The Meeting of Love and Intellect

A person is either compelled to obey a master because of intense love toward the master or because that person understands the wisdom behind the master’s commands on an intellectual level. The same holds true for the relationship between a servant and Allah. One’s obedience to the Creator is either rooted in deep love or in intellectual understanding of the shariah, and the difference between the two is that of night and day.
The intellect is handicapped in the spiritual path of tasawwuf because the destination is only reachable on the wings of love. Intellect is cunning and therefore can appear in a thousand disguises whereas love is pure and simple and therefore does not deceive. The person who attains the blessed gift of love for Allah is indeed fortunate.

Do Remember this Faqir in your prayer.

Lesson of Grave

People need to detach themselves from this life’s false and misleading attractions because all is reduced to the same dust in the end. The greatest and most prominent people who have walked the earth have all met with the same end where, upon their death, they were lowered into a cramped earthen tomb for insects to devour their bodies.
Those yet living must take heed and learn a valuable lesson from this while there is still time. They must be firm and willing in their desire to seek forgiveness for their past mistakes and start anew.

Open your eyes

Open your eyes. What do you see? Do you see the crowds of people walking around? Look at their faces. Curious looks, snobs, anger, expressionless looks, looks of concentration. Did you notice the person that was smiling at you? Look again. See the trees waving to you in greetings?

Concentrate now on your hearing. What do you hear? Traffic? Discussions on the latest gossip? People on the cellular phones that are trying to compete with the noise? Cursing and swearing? Or the radio / television of your neighbors? But do you hear the songs of praises the birds in the day sings for you, or the lullaby the insects orchestrate for you in the night?

Now smell the air. Exhausts? Odors you feel repulsive? Smell again. Concentrate this time. You will find the fragrance of the perfect blossom.

Focus your senses to your skin. Feel the heat? The humidity? But did you not also notice the breeze that is gently trying to cool you? Feel the frost of the winter, biting through all your insulation. Again feel the warmth that the sun is wrapping around you in a warm embrace. And the warmth that is already within you that your heart is circulating.

There is always comfort around us if you know where to look. There is too much distractions in this society. Focus your senses in the correct way and you will find a release.

Jazak Allah
Company of the poor, eating simple and small amounts, and speaking when spoken to are good starting points to heal the defect of the Self (Nafs)..!!

triple filter test

A scholar in middle ages, was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem.
One day an acquaintance met the great scholar and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?"
"Hold on a minute," the scholar replied. "Before telling me anything I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
"Triple filter?"
"That's right," the scholar continued. "Before you talk to me about my friend it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say.
That's why I call it the triple filter test.
The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"
"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and.."
"All right," said the scholar. "So you don't really know if it's true or not.
Now let's try the second filter, the filter of goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?"
"No, on the contrary..."
"So," the scholar continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left: the filter of usefulness.
Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?"
"No, not really."
"Well," concluded the scholar, "if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"

"O ye who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others: It may be that the (latter) are better than the (former)"

the shepherd

Once upon a time, there lived an old man whose only occupation was caring for and loving his only son who was a handsome young man. The old man invested all his money on his son's education. The young man went away for a few years and acquired an education at a well known university under the great scholars of that age.

The day had arrived for the son to return from his studies and the old man waited at the door for his son. When the son came and met his father, the old man looked into his eyes and felt great disappointment. "What have you learnt my son?" he asked, "I have learnt everything there was to be learnt, father", he said. "But have you learnt what cannot be taught?" asked the father. "Go, my son and learn what cannot be taught", said the old man.

The young man went back to his master and asked him to teach him what cannot be taught.

"Go away to the mountains with these four hundred sheep and come back when they are one thousand", said the master.

The young man went to the mountains and became a shepherd. There for the first time he encountered a silence. He had no one to talk to. The sheep did not understand his language. In his desperation, he would talk to them but they would look back at him as if to say he was stupid. Slowly but surely he began to forget all his worldly knowledge, his ego, his pride and he became quiet like the sheep and great wisdom and humility came to him.

At the end of two years when the number of sheep had grown to one thousand,he returned to his master and fell on his feet.

"Now you have learnt whatcannot be taught," said the master.

( May Allah bless us with such knowledge. Ameen )
May Allah The Sublime grant you success—Know that regular fasting amongst the ones who fast is that of their corporeal form (i.e. abstaining from eating and drinking) while the specialized fasting of the Muqinin (The People of Certainty) is the fasting of:

1. The Qalb (Heart) in abstaining from the preoccupations & musings of the world

2. The ears, the eyes and the tongue in abstaining from transgression of the Hadd (Divine Limits)

3. The hands and feet in abstaining from exerting force upon, and striving towards the causes and instruments of the Nahy (Divine Prohibitions)

Do remember this sinner in your prayers.

Jazak Allah
O my God, I have reached this month in a state in which I cannot remove from myself the things that I dislike, nor can I achieve that to which I aspire. These matters are not in my hands but in Yours. . . O my God! I ask for faith that will bring enthusiasm to my heart and an unshakable certitude free from doubt so that I may know that nothing will come to me other than that which You have intended for me, and make me content with what You have given me as my portion.

Peace be upon you Oh Ramdhan Kareem :)

‎'Don't sell your religion for your desires,
Don't sell this golden treasure so cheap'

- Simeen Behbahani (Persian poet)

Saturday, August 7, 2010

As much as you can for as many as you can...

and try to keep your ego out of it:)
You choose to be angry for what was held back,
I choose to be grateful for what was given...
"Qurratu Aini bika Ya Rasoolallah" (Ya Rasoolallah! You are the coolness of my eyes).

Once, the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) entered the Masjid and sat down near a pillar. Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (radi Allahu anhu) was seated beside him. Hazrat Bilal (radi Allahu anhu) then stood up and commenced with the Azaan. When he said: "Ash hadu Ana Muhammadur Rasoolullah", Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (radi Allahu anhu) placed both the thumb nails on to his eyes and said "Qurratu Aini bika Ya Rasoolallah" (Ya Rasoolallah! You are the coolness of my eyes). When Hazrat Bilal (radi Allahu anhu) completed the Azaan, the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, "O Abu Bakr! Whosoever does like you have done, Almighty Allah will forgive all his sins."
