Dua//Mangnay wala aur Denay wala

Dua ke maamlay me mai aam musalmanon ki tarah bohat ehmaq waqay hua hun. Na janay kyun dua maangtay waqt meray dil ki gehraiyun se ye khayal ubharta hai ke dua suntay waqt Allah taala sank baksh moulvi sahab ka roop dhaar letay hain, pehlay wo naak par romaal rakh letay hain phir hath me aik chimti pakar letay hain phir gandi, ghaleez, hawas-bhari aur na-jaaiz duaon ko is chimti se utha utha kar door phaink detay hain. Phir naak se romaal hataty hain. Chimti aik taraf rakh detay hain aur haath dho kar bachi kuchi saaf suthri duaon ka jaaiza letay hain. In me se bhi na-maaqool duain nikaal kar phaink detay hain aur phir baqya duaon ko aik taraf rakh detay hain ke fursat ke waqt in par ghor karain gay.

La shaoor me rachay basay huay is aitebaar ki waja se mujh aisay aam gunahgaar musalmanon ne na tou kabhi dua ke mafhoom ko samjha hai, na maangnay ke fail ko jaan hai aur na qubool karnay wali ki azmat ka raaz paya hai.

Meri apni halat ye hai ke dua ke liye hath uthanay se pehlay sochta hun ke kaheen mai itna tou maang raha ke denay walay pe bojh ho jaye? Kaheen aisi cheez tou nahi maang raha jo na-jaaiz hai, jo ghaleez hai, jis me gunaah ka ansar maujood hai. Kaheen is dua se meri taba’i hawas ka bhaid tou nahi khulta? Phir mai arz karta hun ke Ya Allah! Mai harees nahi hun, mai tujh se ziada nahi maangta. Sirf utna maang raha hun jis ki mujhay ashadd zaroorat hai aur jisay dena teray liye baar na hoga.

 

Is ke sath hi meray dil se aik halki si aawaaz aati hai. Itni halki si ke suni nahi ja sakti:

“Ya Allah! Dekh le, mai kitna acha aadmi hun. Mai ne tujh par bojh nahi daala Mai ne aisi dua nahi maangi ke tujhay naak par romaal rakhna paray, chimti uthani paray. Ya Allah dekh le aisi dua maang kar mai ne tujh par kitna ehsaan kia hai?” Continue reading

تدبیر تقدیر

تم شمع بجھانا چاہتے ہو
مندر کو گرانا چاہتے ہو
مسجد سے نہ آئے صدا کوئی
ہر شور مٹانا چاہتے ہو
آدم نے چھوا جو شجرِ ممنوع
مسکرائی خلقت اور کیا استقبال یوں
بخشی کنجی نئی اک دنیا کی
تم گناہگار ٹہرانا چاہتے ہو
دو دل جو ملیں، سُر تال کھلیں
محبت جو کریں بے لوث کریں
انجام سے پہلے کیوں آخر
تم عنوان مٹانا چاہتے ہو
اے اہل زمیں ذرا یہ تو بتاؤ
کیوں خود کو تھکانا چایتے ہو؟

Not just a film. Its a crime.

“Innocence of Muslims” is an anti-Islam, blasphemous film made to humiliate millions of Muslims and has led to the rise of strong protests from all over the Muslim world. I am sure everybody knows about this because the media is giving a lot of coverage to the protests against it.

I ask myself why this film is made? Why is Islam targeted? What is terrorism and where is peace?

Here, read something the media has to say:

articles.cnn.com :

“I was shaking when I found out. I had no idea,” Dionne told CNN on Sunday. “This was a movie that I thought no one would ever see.”

Dionne knew the filmmaker as Sam Bacile. But federal officials say his name is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a convicted felon with a history of using aliases to hide his actions.

Islam categorically forbids any depictions of Mohammed, and blasphemy is an incendiary taboo in the Muslim world.”

…………………………………..

The film-maker is a man convicted to bank frauds and also to theft from church funds, as the media says. And how do such people get chance to raise fingers against other people or a religion in whole??

forward.com :

BANK FRAUD CONVICTION

Nakoula, whose name has been widely linked to the film in media reports, pleaded guilty to bank fraud in 2010 and was sentenced to 21 months in prison, to be followed by five years on supervised probation, court documents showed.

He was accused of fraudulently opening bank and credit card accounts using Social Security numbers that did not match the names on the applications, a criminal complaint showed.

As well as the fraud conviction, Nakoula also pleaded guilty in 1997 to possession with intent to manufacture methamphetamine and was sentenced to a year in jail, said Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.

So well, your time to decide.

It’s not about one religion or a group of people. Repeated insults and ugly acts targeting millions of people is cowardliness. And terrorism.

Freedom of speech is a right ONLY when it does not cross the boundaries.

If you are spreading hatred by your speech and acts, you misunderstood the meaning of ‘freedom of speech’!

As a blogger I can only plea to:

  •  Muslims for protesting peacefully. For God sake, do not react or protest in a manner that you are going to regret. Be peaceful for Islam is a religion of peace and harmony.
  • People involved for removing the clips of this video and stop insulting religions.

Respecting Religions: please read!

Hey all!

Today I feel the urge to write about an issue which holds importance for me, and which in my view, needs to be solved fast because it’s already too late.

I have experienced a lot of cases, where a person is harassing, embarrassing, and hurting other person. And why? Because he doesn’t like another person’s RELIGION!!

•◘•◘•◘•◘•◘•◘•◘•◘•◘•◘•◘•

Is religion really something to fight about? I have my religion, you have yours. I will surely call you for accepting my religion, that is because I believe it is RIGHT. You too, have freedom to call people for your religion, and this freedom is blessed to you by your religion.

What I see:

1. There was a post on some website help.com. The purpose of which was to HELP find SOLUTIONS and not CREATE more problems.

The post was about religion where a Muslim girl had shared how she was losing her faith and needed strength, and needed comfort. (or perhaps by ANYONE who could HELP.) You know how she was helped? Her religion and her Prophet were insulted and the thread was used to comment stupid remarks about how intolerable some thought her religion was.

http://help.com/post/273848-please-help-im-losing-my-faith-i-a#myLast

Of course this angered me, and it should annoy you too. That is, if you believe in peaceful coexistence.

And then, there is a page on facebook…I don’t feel like pasting it’s URL here, although I really wish I could show what it contained. It is created by a hindu who has made fun of the most sacred place of Muslims. Not only he, but a lot of people have had their say about it.

Burn Quran Day, Draw Muhammad (SAW) Day, these pages on facebook, these posts on help.com, on all other sites: WHAT DO THEY SHOW?

WHY THE HELL IS THIS HAPPENING?

No body is allowed to disgrace ANYONE.

Why are all these ‘International Celebrations’ targeting Islam?

Is peace ImpoSSible? And why Islam? Why on Earth do you think your only responsibility here is to uproot a religion and not find a way to live peacefully?

•◘•◘•◘•

In fact, you should be tolerant of everybody’s religious beliefs. If you have questions or concerns, you should discuss it with a person, instead of judging or arguing and blaming the ENTIRE code.

Listen up people!
I am NOT a sin-free person. I am not angelic, and maybe I make more mistakes than you.
BUT I feel.
It does hurt you know. And let me say, Terrorism is the religion of Evil. And HUMANITY is THE best code of life.

Hiding your identity?

Ask yourself this one simple question…

Are you afraid of the people around you?

Are you hiding your true identity, or does it feel shameful to tell you group of friends who you are?

Are you proud of your religion or do you take it simply?

Are you afraid of accepting what you really are?

Life comes just once. Spend it the way you like. Stop being someone. Be yourself. Hear your call. Say what you like. Listen to that something which keeps on telling you to be yourself, and each time you ignore it with that ‘ i am scared’ reply..

Love yourself.

Hatred and Violence..Differences that matter not

Right now, all I have to say is about the differences of groups and statuses that we have made between each other, Why is a Pakistani just a Pakistani and an Ethnic just an Ethnic? A Muslim just a Muslim and a Hindu just a Hindu? An American just an American and a Christian only a Christian???

Aren’t we all humans? Can’t we all be classified just as humans?only as humans?Not on the basis of a color, creed or religion?Why does one group has to fight with another one for the sake of these groups?Just now, I visited a page on facebook.It was about a country, name it A. And its job was to spread hatred regarding country B. Violating all etiquette and laws of mutual respect, they had used such abusive words and comments. Why so?

Country B does that too. It doesn’t let leave a single chance to insult the other group’s person on their own platform. We call them “terrorists”. What are we ourselves??

Life is so short, why waste it in enmities then?Lets gather and spread love.Be kind.Be good.Be just.

P.S. If you can’t be good, dot be bad either!
