...lonely togetherness

بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم




When it hurts very deep you don't complain! Trust me. You simply walk away in silence. And, it is in these moments that you realise that Allaah has actually not planned for you a comforter in this Duniya. Perhaps, HE wants to be the only One comforting you. 

As a believer, let this reality not hurt you so much that it reflects in your behaviour towards others. Let not what hurt your feelings pass through your expressions to others. When you feel you are all alone and this Duniya only waves at you from afar and displays its continuation of the Journey - remind yourself that, you too are on a journey towards Aakhirah. Make Dua - tell Allaah you feel lonely and ask HIM to make this loneliness HERE, a means to be recompensed with a lonely togetherness in Jannah,  with nobody but HIM. 

When you feel very lonely, when you see that you have always been so - make a wish for a lonely meeting with Al-Wudood in the Gardens where rivers flow. To tell HIM that you waited and that you are now content.

...LET THERE BE SMILING MEMORIES

بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم


Those two eyes awaiting your message, may not open tomorrow
Those ears desperate for your voice, may not hear the next adhaan
That beating piece of flesh that aches inside the heart, may not feel any more sorrow
That precious one whom you would always miss, was Allaah's test, His plan!

Do you see the contacts on your screen whose last seen has frozen? 
Do you realise now they will never reply to your Salaam? 
They did not know that Allaah had them so swiftly chosen
Of them are those who did not wake up to a freshly-set alarm! 

We always think that there is time to get in touch with people
We often drop and postpone a plan to make a call
Although technology has brought us so close, made communication so simple 
There are people waiting for us, we often do not recall...

Of all the things that Allaah blessed us with, on this beautiful earth 
The most precious are those sincere relations that hold us so dear
We do know that our earthly time is greater underneath 
But we often fail to catch the moments till they fall down as a tear..

Is not the end of every dark night a bright morning?
Tell people that you care while they are the Dwellers of your Duniya..
Let the rising sun of Qiyamah be free from such longing
Let there be smiling memories to look back from Allaah's Jannah...

Maahe Ramadaan ki barkat...(الحمدلله)

بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم



Yun mehsoos hota hai k wo baat kal hi ki thi
Soyi thi main jo bebasi me, wo raat kal hi ki thi..
Maahe Ramadaan ki aamad par main kitni laachaar thi
Bistar se uth nahi sakti thi main, rooh o jism se beemaar thi

Ramadaan ki raunaqon se ghar mera bhara hua tha
Rozedaaron ki khushi ko dekh-dekh kar dil mera taras raha tha
Wo aakhri 10 raatein - jinme thi chupi Laylatul Qadr!
Dil mera chaahta tha k mile mujhko wo Shab - Khairum min Alfee Shahr!

Tha wo Ramadaan jisme meri ibaadat thi Tawakkul Us par
Ke ashkon me bheega takiya tha musalle ki jagah par
Roza rakh nahi sakti thi - ye dard dil me basa kar
Main jee rahi thi bas Mushaf ko din-raat gale laga kar

Mere kamzor jism ki ibaadat se hua Rabb mera aise raazi
Ke Wo dekh raha tha k meri har saans thi bas Uski ita'at me baaqi
Wo pehli Taaq raat ko Usne kuch aise sulaaya mujhko
Ke subah Apni Qudrat se aazmaaish me rulaaya mujhko

Jiske deedaar ke intezaar me meri aankhein bichee theen
Jisko thaamne ki aarzu me meri baahein tadap rahi theen
Kaha duniya ne mujhko ke maine usko kho diya hai
Ugte sooraj ne meri zindagi ke chiraagh ko bujhaa diya hai

Aankhein band karke kaha maine ke ye  hai meri duaaon ka silaa
Agar le bhi liya hai Tune, to Ya Rabb wo Tera hi to tha
Lekin dil toot raha hai mera main ab kaise jiyoongi
Teri ibaadat me jeena hai mujhe - na jaane ab kya karoongi...

Mere Allaah ne dikhayaa duniya ko ke wo Khaaliq hai haqeeqi
Uske "kun" k aage nahi hota phir koi falsafa baaqi
Mere Rabb ne diya aisa tohfa, meri zindagi ko sajaa kar
Ke Uski ibaadat me jeena sikhaaya mujhko MAA bana kar..

( الحمدلله )

I am nobody, but a stranger, only a simple wayfarer,
My journey is this life till I reach the Hereafter..
Traveling all along the footsteps of my Teacher
,
For I have to, in time, reach the destination promised by MY
SUSTAINER...
