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.

Protection

Cling To The Robe Of The Archer

“A buzurg asked the people about a powerful archer who never errs in his aim. The sky is his bow and all the difficulties and calamities of the universe are the arrow. Tell me, what is the way of saving yourself from him? They answered that it is not possible to save oneself from him. The buzurg then said: There is only one way, and that is to cling to the robe of the archer.

So brothers! Seek the protection of Allah Most High. Whenever any fear enters the heart, immediately say: O Allah! I seek refuge in You and Your protection. He is such a benefactor that He never refuses ones who asks with sincerity.

You ask yourself if on a dark and rainy night bandits are chasing a lone child and the child is screaming save me, save me! Will you not give such a helpless and desperate child protection? Even if you are living in a shack, you will still grant him safety. After all, Allah is Rabb al-Arbab (Sustainer of all sustainers)and Arham al-Rahimin (Most Merciful of all those who show mercy). When His servant becomes agitated due to difficulties and seeks His protection, then He will definitely open the doors of protection and refuge.”

These words touched my heart and I thought of sharing this with all my wonderful readers.

My heart is overwhelmed to know how Merciful is Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala. Banda chaahen jis mushkil mein ho agar waaqai tadapte dil se Allah se maangen beshak Allah ka waada hai ke wo zaroor sunega bus hum hi maangne mein der karte hain aur humen hi maangne ka tareeqa nahi aata.
