Apni Marzi

“Apni marzi se kahan apne safar ke hum hain

Rukh hawaaon ka jidhar ka hai udhar ke hum hain

Pehle har cheez thi apni magar ab lagta hai

Apne hi ghar mein kisi doosre ghar ke hum hain

Waqt ke saath hai mitti ka safar sadiyon se

Kisko maaloom kahan ke hain kidhar ke hum hain

Chalte rehte hain ke chalnaa hai musaafir ka naseeb

Sochte rehte hain kis raahguzar ke hum hain

Hum wahan hain jahan kuch bhi nahin rasta na dayar

Apne hi khoe hue shaam-o-sahar ke hum hain

Gintiyon mein hi gine jaate hain har daur mein hum

Har qalamkaar ki benaam khabar ke hum hain – Nida Fazli

Kai baar zindagi mein hum bohot kuch sochte hain bohot kuch chaahte hain magar ya haalaat mukhaalif hote hain ya sab kuch soch se bilkul ulat hota hai. Apni zindagi bhi ek badbani kashti ki tarah hai jo haalat ki ravish par aage badhti hai. Kab zindagi mein wo hota hai jo insaan chaahta hai. Hum itni lambi lambi taweelen karte hain, plans banaate hain ke ye karna hai wo karna hai, ye chaahiye aur ye nahin lekin aane waala lamha hi tae karta hai ke hona kya hai.

Itne saare aur itne confusing khayalaat zehen mein aa rahe the bohot kuch likha aur mitaaya, phir likha aur phir mitaaya ye soch kar ke padhne wala pareshaan na ho jaaen.

Khair, Nida Fazli ki ye dil ko choo jaane waali ghazal har us lamhe ke naam jab hum sochte kuch hain aur hota kuch hai, chaahte kuch hain aur milta kuch hai aur jab mil bhi jaae to aage wo hota nahin jo humne socha hota hai. Baharhaal apni marzi to hoti hi nahin.

Khizaan Mein Bhi Shukr-e-Khuda

Pichli martaba jab garmiyon ki chutti mein Ammi Daddy ke ghar gae tab Daddy ki tabiyat bohot zyada kharab thi, aur unse log aksar phone par ya ghar aate the haal chaal maaloom karne ke liye. Daddy ka ek andaaz hai ke har baat par ek sher sunaate hain. Baharhaal kisi ne daddy ki tabiyat poochi to us par Daddy ne Allah ka shukr kiya aur ye khoobsurat sher sunaaya.

“Ae bulbulon khizaan mein bhi Shukr-e-Khuda karo,

Tinke kahan se laaoge fasl-e-bahaar mein”.

In do ashaar ne to jaise zindagi ki har takleef aur mushkilaat ko dekhne ka nazariya hi badal diya. Aur sach hai ke humen siwa maayoosi bhari baaten karne ke, pareshan rehne ke aur pareshani zaahir karne ke alaawa koi kaam nahin.

Jahan koi pareshaani aati nahin hai ke hum Allah ki di hui tamaam nematen bhool jaate hain, wo nematen jo Wo hamesha deta raha aur ab bhi de raha hai aur shikwe shikaayaton ke ambaar laga dete hain, aur nashukri ki baaten karte hain ke humaare saath to hamesha aisa hi hota hai.

Hum sirf ye dekhte hain ke kya nemat Us ne hum se le li ye nahin dekhte ke kya de raha hai aur aage bhi dega In Sha Allah. Kyon ke banda apne Rab ko waisa paata hai jaisa ke uska gumaan hai.

Ae Allah Tujh se dua hai ke hum Tujh se badgumaan aur badzan na hon, humen taufeeq de ke Teri di hui tamaam nematon ko pehchaanen aur Tere shukshukr guzaar banen.

Rabbi awzi’ni an ashkura ni’matak-allati an’amta ‘alayya wa ‘ala walidayya wa an amal salihan tardahu wa aslih li fi dhurriyati

Translation: Ae mere Rab! mujhe taufeeq de ke main Teri is nemat ka shukr ada karoon jo Toone mujh par aur mere walidaen par ataa farmaai aur ye ke aisa nek amal karoon jis se Tu raazi hojaae aur mere liye meri aulaad ki islaah farma de.

Main Bohot Pareshaan Hoon

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Baraktuhu (May the peace mercy and blessings of Allah be with you). I’m back today with another post with a dose full of positivity by Salman Imdad. Kuch din pehle jinki ek nazm ‘Mayoos Na Ho Salman’ humne aap sab se share ki thi. Aaj ki post ka unwaan hai Me Boht Pareshan Hun!.

“Bohot saare logon se hum zindagi mein salaam ke baad unka haal poochte hain to wo kehte hain ke “Yaaaar bus haalat kharaab hai, yaar ye ho raha hai, bus job chootne waali hai, Yaaar bus tabiyat kharaab hai, yaar mere to haalaat kharaab hain, mere paas paise nahin hain”.

Itniii pareshaaniyaan aapko ginwaate hain aap bolte hain “kya iski zindagi jahannam bani hui hai iski to”. Kya aapne kabhi khud kisi ko (chod do doosron ko) bola hai ke “main bohot khush hoon”? Kabhi bhi… Ikka dukka koi log honge. Lekin kya aapne kisi ko bolte hue suna hai “Main bohot khush hoon”. Kabhi bol ke try kiya hai ke “Main bohot khush hoon”. Ek dafa try to karo. Bolo “Allah ka shukar hai Alhamdulillah main bohot khush hoon”.

Sab bolte hain “Alhamdulillah Lekin Yaaar” wo jo Lekin yaar ke baad gandi si shakal banti hai na 😞☹️😖, mat banaao, chodo rehne do. Jab koi pooche na ke “Kaise ho” bolo “Main bohot khush hoon”. Try kar ke dekh lo bhale khush na ho, try kar ke dekho teen, chaar, paanch din. Sirf teen, chaar, paanch din ye bol ke dekho. Yaqeen maano, qasam se zindagi aapki khush hone lag jaaegi.

Apni har cheez ka shukar karo, Aapka apna zinda hone ka shukar karo aur Allah Ta’ala se ye cheez maango ke hum khush rahen. Bajaae iske ke Bohot saaare log maine dekhe hain jo khush hote hain lekin phir bhi bol rahe hote hain “Yaar main khush nahin hoon”. Pata nahin kyon???

Main to kehta hoon khush nahin bhi ho na tab bhi kaho “Main khush hoon” to aisa time aaega ke aap khush hoge, Jin cheezon mein khushi nahin hai un cheezon mein bhi aapko khushi milegi. Aise kar ke muskuraao aur is video ko share karo aur aise logon ko tag karo jo har waqt 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♂️rote rehte hain”. – Salman Imdad

The above words are a part of Salman Imdad’s video Me Boht Pareshan Hun!.

Video dekha aur laga Share zaroor karna chaahiye kyon ke ye hum sab ka maamool ho chuka hai ke sab ko sirf apni pareshaniyaan bataaen. Muskuraakar Allah ka shukr karna to hum bhool hi gae.

A reminder to myself first and for all of us :

Muskuraane ko ek aadat banaane ki koshish karen aur Allah ke waaste kabhi to muskuraakar apna haal ehwaal bataaen Aur Allah ki raza mein raazi hokar rehna seekhen. Zindagi pur-sukoon aur pur-aman banjaaegi.

Muskuraahat hai husn ka zewar,

Muskuraana na bhool jaaya karo”. – Abdul Hamid Adam

Let’s spread positivity around and not nag about the little or the not so little things in our life and count our blessings instead.

Keep Smiling and Have a happy day🌸😊😀

‘Tis Easy Doodle

One of my favourite quote

I started this doodle many days ago, drew something bit by bit but completed it today and added one of my favourite quotes to this doodle by Ella Wheeler Wilcox .

” Tis easy enought to be pleasant, when life flows like a song, but the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong”.

Khushi mein har ek muskuraata hai, maza to jab hai ke koi mushkilaat mein bhi muskuraata rahe. Jigar chaahiye mushkil waqt mein muskuraane ko. Isi baat par ek sher bhi aap sab ki pesh e nazar. Shayar ka naam nahin malum.

Jis ne adaa seekh li gham mein muskuraane ki,

Use kya mitaaengi gardishen zamaane ki.

Like, Comment And Reality

Yesterday I came across this interesting article “The Psychology of Social Media: Why We Like, Comment, and Share Online”. Though it was a bit lengthy but it was an engaging read and I was compelled to scroll down and read it till the end. Could you ever imagine there’s something like social media biology? I never even thought about it. Did you ever know why we like, comment and share online? Read this article to know all about it.

Somewhere in the article I read that “comments about you are a reflection of you to the consumer”. Appreciation kise nahin acha lagta lekin I always feel no matter how one thinks about how we are on social media but in reality we are quite different.

In the virtual world we are so sweet to everyone but we are who we are when we are home or when we are alone, how we are to our loved ones. Real world is so different. When someone comments something nice about my blog certainly it feels nice but I feel in my heart, that’s probably because they don’t know me. Here’s when we need to make this wonderful dua:

Allahumma-ja’lni khayran mima yadhunoon wa-ghfir li ma la ya’lamoon wa la tu’akhidhni bi ma yaquloon.

O Allah, make me better than what they think of me, and forgive me for what they do not know about me, and do not take me to account for what they say about me.

I find it so difficult to be who I am not and I dislike portraying myself and my thoughts falsely and every thing false and I have an aversion towards such people who pretend to be someone that is so different from who they really are. One should always be truthful but the irony is that Truth is always bitter and people often don’t like to hear the truth. Plato once said “No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth” but I don’t really mind. It might be heartbreaking for a few but I even don’t like false likes and false comments. Acha lage to like kariye na lage to aage badhiye aur humaare khayal se is mein humen ya kisi ko bura maanne ki koi baat nahin hai. At least you know the real worth of whatever you are posting or yourself and taking it positively for improving yourself.

But unfortunately log sachai zyada pasand nahin karte.

I simply can’t click that like button if the post doesn’t match my interests or if there’s something in the post that is different from my views. Saying so doesn’t mean that a post that I don’t like is a bad post it might be nice to someone else. It’s simply because everyone’s likes dislike are different and there’s no obligation on others to like what I like. You can choose something different. I feel that’s how it should be. Those who genuinely like your posts care enough to express their like by sending you at least a few words of appreciation and motivation warna like to yunhin har koi click kar hi deta hai.

Kai baar kisi ki post bohot zyada perfect nahin ho aur topic acha ho tab bhi like aur comment karna chaahiye kyon ke jahan tak ghalti ki baat hai to ghaltiyen to insaanon se hi hoti hain aur hum sab seekh hi rahe hain aur koi professional writers ya bloggers to hain nahin. After all we all need motivation aur har kaam aate aate hi aata hai. Aur Agar hum near to perfect hain tab bhi yehi soch kar chalna chaahiye ke hum sab seekh hi rahe hain. This attitude allows us to be humble and we are always ready to learn something.

I like constructive criticism in a polite manner that helps us to see our flaws, ponder over them and correct them warna na to khud ko koi khaami apne aap mein nazar aaegi nahin aur na hi wo khaami durust hogi. Humaare khayal se bande ko itna to dil bada rakhna chaahiye ke koi aapko koi negative comment kare to aap use positively len. Yahan phir ye hota hai ke hum asal zindagi mein aur virtual life mein bohot different react karte hain, bohot zyada different na bhi hon to kuch to farq hota hai. Virtual life ya social media mein to negative comment ko positively lenge lekin real life koi negative comment kare to dushman ban jaata hai (nek log aise nahin hote im talking about normal people like myself).

Yehi sab sochte sochte pata nahin kya kya dimaagh mein chalne laga aur ye sach jhoot aur bohot saari baaten soch kar blog delete karne hi waale the. Phir socha acha ek aad blog kar len aur phir ise delete kar denge. Ek GOODBYE blog shuru bhi kar chuke hain. Khair jab tak hain yahan tab tak hain aur jab tak hain tab tak to aap ko jhelna hi padenge ye blogs.

Isi baat par Hairat Allahabadi se inspire hokar abhi abhi ye sher dimaagh mein aaya hai mulaahiza farmaaiye:

Kab tak WordPress par hain kuch khabar nahin

Saamaan sau baras ka hai pal ki khabar nahin

In the end we must remember that these likes and dislikes are all virtual. It’s all virtual and if we take it as reality it might lead to serious depression and self esteem related issues.

Well, these are the rambling thought that came to my mind when I read that post about Psychology of social media. Baat shuru kahan hui aur kahan aake khatm hui. Aapke kya khayalaat hain is baare mein bataaiye zaroor. I would be glad to hear what you have to say regarding this.
