This year it seems that time has flown by quicker than its usual pace.
It seems in the span of a year, so many anomalies have occurred which -in turn- redefined the world, the space we live in.

I pray that Allah grant patience to the mother who lost her son to a fire,
for the sister whose brother was mercilessly murdered without reason,
to the father whose son drowned in front of his friends.

I pray that Allah grant peace to the mother who departed in an accident,
leaving her four little children to cope with the vast emptiness she left behind.

I pray that Allah grant hope to the woman who left her abusive husband with her two-year old child,to cope in this cruel world with no one to turn to.

I pray for the little girls who are sold by their fathers for money he must use to feed his hungry children.

I pray for peace in places where nothing but gun shots have ever resonated.
I pray for security in a place which has no boundaries.

I pray for the safety of the men who fight for their country,
against men who fight for their religion.

I pray that every child has a moment to smile,
a day to remember,
before he dies,
as a fond memory.

I pray that no mother is ever shamed in front of her family,
leaving her hopeless,

I pray that no girl is condemned to a life time of prevarication for a mistake she once made as a child.

I pray that the bombastic tyrants which rule parts of this world are stripped of their integrity and pride, revealing the truth.

I pray that our dreams become our children’s realities.

I pray for the unity of Ummah.

I pray for peace, and love and happiness.

May the message of Islam brings terror into the hearts of the Kafireen, Munafiqeen, wal Murtadeen.And it brings tears of happiness to the eyes of the Mu’mineen fe kulli makaan.

Allahumma a’Izzal Islama wal Muslimeen. Wa Adhilashirka wal Mushrikeen! Allahumma makeele deenik! Allahumma ‘arish Shari’ahatak! Allahummah a’Izzah kitaabak. Allahumma Maftahli ‘Ibaadakal Mu’mineen Fathun Mubeena! Allahumman Surhum Nasrun Mu azzara! Allahumman Surhum fe Afghanistan! Allahumman Surhum fil ‘Iraq! Allahumman Surhum fe Filistine! Allahumman Surhum fe Sheeshan! Allahumman Surhum fe Somaal! Allahumman Surhum fe Al Jazaaer! Allahummansur Mujahideena fe kulli makaan! Allahummansur Mujahideena fe kulli makaan! Allahummansur Mujahideena fe kulli makaan! Allahummar hum haalahum! Allahummar hum Da’faahum! Allahummar hum Faqrahum! Allahumma yadha Jalaali wal Ikraam! Ameen Ya Rabbal ‘Alameen!

And to Allah belongs everything and all matters return back to Him alone.

Have a nice day.
Eid Mubarik and A Happy New Year!

Hum key tehrey ajnabi

ham ke Thehre ajnabi itni mulaaqaatoN ke baad

phir baneiN ge aashna kitni madaaraatoN ke baad

kab nazar meiN aaye gi be daaGh sabze ki bahaar
khoon ke dhabe dhuleiN ge kitni barsaatoN ke baad

the bahut bedard lamhe khat’m-e-dard-e-ishq ke
theiN bahut bemeh’r subheiN meh’rbaaN raatoN ke baad

dil to chaaha par shikast-e-dil ne moh’lat hi na di
kuchh gile shikwe bhi kar lete manaajaatoN ke baad

un se jo kehne gaye the “Faiz” jaaN sadqe kiye
an kahi hi reh gayi woh baat sab baatoN ke baad

Agha Shahid Ali’s Translation:

After those many encounters, that easy intimacy,
. we are strangers now –
After how many meetings will we be that close again?

When will we again see a spring of unstained green?
After how many monsoons will the blood be washed
. from the branches?

So relentless was the end of love, so heartless –
After the nights of tenderness, the dawns were pitiless,
. so pitiless.

And so crushed was the heart that though it wished
. it found no chance –
after the entreaties, after the despair — for us to
. quarrel once again as old friends.

Faiz, what you’d gone to say, ready to offer everything,
. even your life –
those healing words remained unspoken after all else had
. been said.

Tumhe inn mausamon kee kaya khabar miltee aggar hum bhee

Ghuttan kay khauf say aab-o-Hawa tabdeel kar laitay

Tumahari tarhay jeenay kaa hunnar aataa aggar hum ko

Makaan apnaa wohee rakhtay pataa tabdeel kar laitay

Dil hi to hai naa sang-o-khist
Dard se bhar naa aye kyun
Royein gey hum hazaar baar
Koi humme sataaye kyun….

Dair nahi, haram nahi
Dar nahi, Aastaan nahi
Bethein hain raah-guzar pe hum
Ghair humme uthaaye kyun….

Asal mein dono aik hain
Maut se pehlay aadmi,
Ghum se nijaat paaye kyun…

Haan woh nahi khuda parast
Jao woh bewafa sahi
Jisko ho deen-o-dil azeez
Uski gali mein jayein kyun…
