School: APS, Warsak Road, Peshawar
Last Day at School: 16 December, 2014
On 16 Dec 2014, Khaula Bibi became the youngest victim of the day………the day (amongst many other such days in our history) was made possible due to our months of insensitivity-as-a-nation, years of national-failures, decades of wrong-policies, and lifetimes of collective-insanity.
All men and women are born, live, suffer and die; what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams, whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things, and what we do to make them come about… We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death. But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live.
Like everything else, change is related to “love”…
When we love some-one, some-thing, some-space (place) and some-time, that changes us……in and out.
…….and love is something that doesn’t sit back. It changes.
….well, then it all depends on what / whom we love.
Choice-base is wide (….difference also is).
[Allah, Rasoolullah PBUH, people, things, possessions, professions, kids, Muslims, guns, roses, sects, maslaks, associations…]
(……..quite proportionally, “hate” has same effects)
Q: Shirk kiya hai?
A: Kisi ko Allah jaisi importance / value dena… Allah jaisi jagah pe consider karna… Allah jaisi authority samajhna… Allah jaisi powers ka haamil khayal karna….
[Har kaam ko uskay waqt per karna aur ha cheez ko uski jagah per rakhna adl hai……aur iski zidd zulm hai…]
A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, But a guiding light whose love shows us the way…
A writing that actually brings tears to eyes.
Love of Beloved Dads needs to acknowledged in the same coin. Gul e Nokhaiz has aptly done so. Haq adaa kar diyya.
Bless you, Dad..
