Life is meaningful, only when one wishes to make it. We are creatures of time and we’ll wither away in it. The little moments of joy we find and create are all that will live with us.

Daman mai Meray [In my Embrace]

Nazaara-e-Khauf main aap khud ulfat kay taray aa kar bikhrain hain, daman mai meray
{ In the midst of fear, the stars of passion have willfully come and fallen in my embrace }

Jabeen jal afroz hai, dilkash nazaray aap khud aa kar nikhrain hain, daman mai meray
{ My head is endowed with blissfull dew, for wondrous visions have willfully come and bloomed in my embrace } 

Tera husna-e-jamal, aur husn-e-shahanai – dilafroz hai aik zamanay bhar kay liyay
{ Your beautiful demeanor and your glorious regale is heartfelt for the whole of humanity } 

Teri yadon kay meethay saayee aap khud aa kar nikhrain hain, daman mai meray
{ Fragments of your sweet memories have willfully come and bloomed in my embrace }

Sama-e-Shaukh kay unwanon main chupi hai haqueeqat meray us haseen dost ki
{ The secret of my most beautiful friend lies in the parables of the pages of desire } 

Jabeen jis ki munawar, kashish aankhoom main, aur ailk haseen shooukh ki see jiski
{ One whos head is auric and haloed, eyes mystified and smile endowed with pleasures unknown }

Hai jis ka dil purnoon mauhabat ki haseen jheel pay chand kay methay sayee kay jasay
{ One whos heart is luminescent with the sweet-scented lunar shade upon the lake of pure passion } 

Teri ulfat kay methay sayee, aap khud aa kar bikhrain hain daman main meray
{ The shades of your sweet love have willfully come and dispersed in my embrace } 

Meray doost – zara to jhank appni shakhsiat kay pehlooyn may faqat – kabhee
{ Wonder and ponder a little upon your personality’s folds – My dearest friend }

Teri rooh kay tootay sitaray aap khud aa kay simntain hain daman say meray
{ Your wounded soul’s broken shimmers have willfully come and clung on to my embrace } 

Main usi Um-e-shaukh kay haseen kirdaroon ka talib hoon faqat
{ I am only eager and in awe of the sight of that beautiful apsara } 

Taranum jis ki zeenat, ulfat jis ka husan aur zouq apsaroon kay jaisa
{ One who has melody as demeanor, passion as beauty and choices of the ancient fairies of far } 

Khuda ka noor hai dil ki rutoon main – mai aur meray doost mil kar
{ The love of GOD lies in our hearts together as one } 

Khuda janee, kya khabar hai kab yeh dilrang nazaray aa kar nikhrain gain daman main meray
{ Who knows when GOD will will these visions to come and willfully bloom in my embrace }

Kab banay gi haqeeqat meray is zaath ki zeenat, meri yeh haseen soonch
{ When this beautiful thought will form unto its beautiful truth } 

Dua hai ab to – kay app khudh miljayeen meray dilrang sitaray daman say teray
{ I pray, that my stars may now come and willfully fall in your sweet embrace }

Dedicated to Um

Staying True to Yourself

It is so easy to utter these words but in fact it is the most difficult thing for anyone to do!

So much of what we do in life is about all that surrounds us. It is all out there – in the people we know, in the times and things we desire…
We seldom look at ourselves to see who we are?

Our everyday judgements are formed based on our perception of others in accordance with what we understand to be true – in the light of the knowledge we have acquired and the reality that we choose for ourselves. But it is less often that we take all that and introspect our own self!

As people we do not do this too often because we get too preoccupied with what we have to deal with as time streams by… our senses keep us too busy with what is around us to allow us the freedom to look within. Seldom when we get hit in time with a call to action – a suffering, a loss, a grief or someone’s pain that we wakeup to realize that what surrounds us is not the truth – the truth lies within.

For if anything in life is really true and undeniable ‘it is my own existance’ – ‘my own conscience’ – ‘my own self’… yet we seldom use our acquired wisdom to focus on this ultimate truth.

I once read it in the Quran that, in the universe, GOD has granted Human Being the capacity to alter/change/ manipulate anything on this Earth that has color and odor except for the celestial bodies which are beyond its control and influence.

In all this time, that single fact has proven true where we have not been able to alter/ change anything of the celestial order and it is my belief that it will continue that way till the end.
At one level we are given a free reign to do as we will – and at the other end we are constrained to the maximum extent.

Like when I as a person have the capacity to alter/ change what is within me at will – but do not have the capacity to alter/ change others at my will.

Inner – Outer

I can only reason to their ‘will’ to understand and accept my thought…
Yet all our lives, we as people – pursue to change others in light of what we understand to be true.
Every religion and school of thought highlights the need for a person to look ‘within’… yet we seldom do that.

I can only be true to myself – when I start to look within.
When I correct my behavior in light of the knowledge acquired.
When I strive for excellence and composure of myself.
When I love myself.

It is then that the world around me starts to change and the reality in front manifests itself in physical.
For I have control of anything in this world that has color and odor with the power of my own – WILL!

And so it is true for all of us.

‘Staying True to Yourself’ is a lesson that should be taught in all schools of life and preached at all sermons for it is the ‘only law’ we need in this world.

I learned to start looking within some 5 years back in life. Someone very close to me – my dearest mentor in life Mr. Karim Halani, taught me that lesson.
It was a journey for me because it took a while for me to clear my mind and shift my focus within and I am still learning.

I have practiced this lesson in life… and it has been the most challenging yet rewarding one for me…
For anyone who has already pursued this path would know, that this has tremendous treasures wrapped within it for the taking – it is the heaven within itself or if less, at least a good manifestation of it.

It has the power to give you contentment, peace, affection, love and wealth. In truth – whatever you desire for yourself.

This Eid and amids all the mayhem of our times…
This is my Gift for my friends and loved ones.

– Look within to find the absolute truth.
– Look within to take what you desire.
– Look within to change your world.

In the spirit of social services which I fortunately share as a legacy from my father… please also spread this message around…
You never know how many lives you will save!

Your KNIGHT in Shining Armour

Dedicated to Um 🙂

We try to do the best we can, yet the fear is spread a million miles – so far…
This night of reason thrills me no more for the blow of grief has struck its hour…
But then one fine day my spirit speaks, awakens me to the moment & time and then somehow I hoist my own flag – for the martial of great fields that I have become – its my country its my own – I shall march along but not in fear…
Now is the moment – Now is the time!
