‘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.

Mullaani Hogai Hai

Jab koi aadmi Allah Taala ko uski poori azmat ke saath paa leta hai, to uske andar ek roohani hulchul paida ho jaati hai, us hulchul se kya hota hai har waqt use Allah Taala ki yaad aati hai. Aisa kyon? Beikhtiyaar kyon ho jaata hai?

Ab sote hue uth rahe hain “Allah”,

Ab sone ja rahe hain “Allah”,

Ab kuch dekhte hain fauran “Allah”,

Ye kaise hota hai, kyon ke Allah ko shaoor ke saath paaya hai na to dil mein ek iztiraab (restlessness) hai, uski yaad hai jo zubaan pe beikhtiyaar aa jaata hai,

kabhi zabaan se shukar ke kalimaat nikalte hain “Alhamdulillah”,

Kabhi dar lagta hai to kehte hain “Astaghfirullah”,

Kabhi koi achi cheez dekhte hain “Masha Allah”,

Hairat hoti hai to “Subhan Allah”,

Humaari to lughat (language) se ye baaten nikal gaeen aur humko ye lafz bolne mein bhi sharm aati hai ab, log kya kahenge “Mullani hogai hai”.

Ye mullani ke alfaz nahin hain, ye Allah ki mohobbat karne waalon ke besaakhta (involuntary) jumle (sentences) hain.

Lekin aap dekhen ke aaj ke log badi badi gaadiyon mein baith kar, bade bade gharon mein reh kar, bade bade ohdon(positions) aur jobs pe itminaan (peace) se mehroom hain, ajeeb pareshani ka shikaar hain, jitni maadi(material) taraqqi badhi utni besukooni badhi, har taraf comfort dene waale saaman maujood hain, thick carpets, bhaari parde, bhaari furniture, behtareen khaane, umda(excellent) libaas lekin sukoon naam ki cheez nahin hai, sab cheezen ajnabi aur moo chidaati hui nazar aati hain, haqeeqi khushi nahi logon ke chehron par, masnooi(artificial) muskurahat ke peeche ek fikar ki lehar saaf dekhi ja sakti hai. Kyon? Iski wajah kya hai? Iski wajah ye hai ke khushi to rooh ko hoti hai na, aur rooh ka saaman Quran hai jo Rooh-ul-Ameen le kar aae.

Aur hum usko khush karna chaahte hain maadi (material) cheezon se maslan bacha khilauna maang raha hai aur hum usko khaana khilaane lag jaaen. To wo khush ho Jaaega? Wo kahega mujhe khilauna chaahiye aur aap kahen aao khaana khaao. Wo aur cheekhega main khaana maang raha hoon aap mujhe khaana khilaate hain, kyon ke wo to aam taur par(normally) bhi use khaana nahin acha lagta.

Humaara haal yehi hai, jis cheez ki khushi jis cheez mein hai wohi milegi to rooh khush hogi. Ab aap dekhen ke ek Insaan se mil ke aapko khushi hoti hai, wo na mile saikadon(thousands) log milen. Dil ka Kya haal hota hai? Khush hote hain aap? Nahin! Aur wo ek mil jaae to sab kuch mil jaata hai. Kyon ke rooh ki khushi is mein hai, us se zyaada khoobsoorat aur maaldar logon mein nahin hai, us ek mein hai.

Insaan ashraful makhlooqaat (most evoked) hai uski rooh ki khushi us se kamtar (lesser) cheezon mein nahin hai, ye baaqi saari cheezen hum se kamtar hain na, hum in se bartar (higher) hain, ye saari cheezen humaare liye zaroorat ke liye paida ki gaeen, hum ne inhen poojna shuru kar diya, hum ne in mein khushi talash karni shuru kar di, Humen apne se badi cheez mein sukoon mil sakta hai jo haqeeqi maanon mein hum se badi hai, aur wo ek hi cheez hai ALLAH. Aur jab tak use bhoole rahenge, usko faramosh kare rahenge, us ko chodenge, haqeeqi khushi nahi mil sakti. Apne se kamtar mein sukoon nahi mil sakta apne se bartar mein sukoon milega”.

Note:

The above article is a part of a lecture of Dr. Farhat Hashmi that I heard long ago and I noted it down and today I thought of sharing it with you all. Dr. Farhat Hashmi kisi taaruf ki mohtaaj nahin hain, she’s one of the most famous women scholars of Islam in Pakistan.

Humari to deen mein maloomaat bohot thodi hai is liye socha ke nothing better than precious words of Islamic scholars that I have come across. Blog banaane ka to iraada nahin tha kabhi, lekin hamesha kuch qeemti moti chun chun kar apni kitaabon mein rakhte rahe jis mein se kuch qeemti baaten aaj aap sab se share kari hain. Bus humne jo kuch suna jo kuch padha Allah hum sab ko us par amal ki taufeeq de.

Allah Ta’ala humen taufeeq de ki hum Uska zikr karen, shukr ada karen aur behtareen ibaadat karen.

Gulshan Ki Faqat Phoolon Se Nahin

Gulshan ki faqat phoolon se nahin kaaton se bhi zeenat hoti hai,
jeene ke liye is duniya mein gham ki bhi zaroorat hoti hai.

Wo pursish-e-gham ko aae hain kuch keh na sakoon chup reh na sakoon,
khaamosh rahoon to mushkil hai keh doon to shikaayat hoti hai.

Karna hi padega zabt-e-alam peene hi padenge ye aansu,
fariyaad-o-fughaan se ae naadaan tauheen-e-mohabbat hoti hai.

Jo aake ruke daaman pe ‘Saba’ wo ashq nahin hai paani hai,
jo ashq na chhalke aankhon se us ashq ki keemat hoti hai.
Written by Saba Afghani

Aaj yunhin khayal aaya ke ye ghazal share karen aap sab se. This is not complete, 2nd paragraph nahin hai is mein. Waise to saari ghazal bohot hi khoobsurat hai lekin ye wali line to humari favourite hai… “wo pursish e gham ko aae hain kuch keh na sakoon chup reh na sakoon…” Kis khoobsurati se shayar ne kuch na keh kar bhi bohot kuch keh diya, gila kiya kar bhi diya aur nahin bhi.

Kai baar aisa hota hai ke koi aap se haal ehwaal maaloom kare ya koi sawal kare to haalat ya baat hi kuch aisi hoti ke jawaab mein kuch kehna bhi mushkil hota hai aur khamosh rehna to us se bhi kahin zyaada bhi mushkil hota hai… zabt karna padta hai… zabt karna aasan nahin hota bohot hi zyada mushkil kaam hai…

Oho! Aur aakhri do ashaar ki to baat hi kya hai.

Awards

The Penable Award!

Hello! Hope you all are trying to have a nice time in this lockdown. Yesterday I was nominated by Saba for The Penable Award and I’m grateful and honored. Thanks a million Saba for considering me. It came to me as a surprise and I was thrilled to see it.

Saba is a wonderful and enthusiastic blogger who expresses her feelings in a beautiful manner. You’ve got to have a look at post and you’ll know what I mean.

My writing talent ✍️:

I am still trying to discover and identify what my writing talent is. It’s a long way to go and the journey has just begun to nurture my writing into talent.

1: Where does peace really exist; heart or mind? Why/why not?

Peace exists in the heart infact (it’s not a fact it’s just my perception) Peace is co-related with the heart and mind. According to me it’s like an equation if your heart is at peace your mind will automatically lie in peace and when the mind is at peace the heart will be at peace. If your mind is not at peace it will not allow your heart to live peacefully and when the heart is not at peace it not allow the mind to stay at peace and true peace ultimately lies in the remembrance of Allah.

2: Share some of your childhood memories

My favourite question. I always love going back in time. One of my favourite childhood memories is running around and playing under the shade of the huge paakad tree at my grandfathers house. I treasure those memories. The tree still exists and has grown ever more huge Masha Allah. Masha Allah and now my kids play under it with their cousins.

3: How to tie a tie?

This is a tough one. Don’t know how to answer to this one. Difficult to put it into words.

Now it’s time for nominations. Honestly speaking there are way too many people and brilliant writers all blessed uniquely and don’t know whom to choose.

Thanks once again Saba for nominating me.

Barsaat Ki Aamad

Bombay mein barsaat ki aamad hai. Mausam suhana ho chala hai, thandi thandi hawaaen chalna shuru hogai hain aur baadalon ke saae ghane ho rahe hain. Barish ka mausam jab bhi aata hai saath apne na jaane kitni bhooli bisri yaaden bui saath le aata hai.

A picture that I took a couple of years ago

There’s something about monsoon that makes it so so so special. I simply love rain. Barish ki boondon ki sirf aawaz hi kahin aur hi pohoncha deti hai. Baadalon ki aawaz, thandi hawaaen, baadalon ki dheemi dheemi gadgadaahat, teen ki chat par boondon ki tip tip aawaaz aur us par mitti ki khusbu. Uffff ! The feeling is inexplicable.

There was once a time when we (me and my sister) used to walk in the rain, listened to the radio and audio cassettes we had recorded specially for the rainy season. Na jaane kitni ghazalen aur gaane the. But no more walk in the rains and the dear songs I’ve sacrificed listening to them all for the sake of Allah. Just trying to be a better person. We cant be perfect but we can try to the best best of our ability to do our best.

Bohot hi chote the tab kaghaz ki kashti banaaya karte the. Dekhte rehte the ke kiski kashti kitni door jaati hai. Khair Ab to bus yaaden hi reh gai hain, baarish ke maze ab bhi zaroor lete hain lekin sirf nazaare dekh dekh kar. Aur bhi naa jaane kitni hi aisi yaaden jo dil o dimaagh mein basi hain jinhen likhne baithen to saare readers bhaag jaaenge.

Aaj ke liye itna hi. Phir milenge In Sha Allah. Tab tak ke liye Allah Hafiz.

Chalte chalte ek bohot hi zyada eham baat yaad aagai. Baarish ke waqt khoob duaaen qubool hoti hain, dua qubooliyat ka waqt hota hai. Allah se ummeed hai Allah Taala hum sab ki nek dili tamannaon ko poora karega. Bus us se sache dil se maange ki der hai.
