ہماری “اشرافیہ” کے بعد اب ایک مزید طبقہ میدان میں آ گیا ہے۔۔۔

 …. اِس طبقے کی کچھ نُمایاں خصوصیات ہیں

اول: یہ اشرافیہ کا وکیل، حدی خواں اور ڈیفینڈر ہے۔

دوم: اس کے خیال میں سب مسائل کا حل ایک ہی ہے، یعنی تمام مسائل کی جڑ ایک ہی ہے۔ اور وہ ہیں: سیاست دان۔

سوم:  اس طبقے کے خیال میں اس کے اراکین سے زیادہ وطن کا وفادار، دین کا سمجھ دار، ملت کا پرستار اور کوئ نہیں۔

 چہارم: اس کی اشرافیہ کی ڈیفینیشن بھی مختلف ہے۔۔ یہ اشرافیہ کو لُغوی معنوں میں شمار کرتا ہے۔

 😄 جبکہ، عام لوگ لَغوی معنوں میں

Happy is the one who is blessed with eemaan.

Happiness, contrary to popular belief, is neither an innate feeling, nor lies on external locus of control…

Happiness is a matter of blessing by God. It lets us gets freed from predispositions, apprehensions and consumptions of time and space. It is the opposite of insecurity….


“Unquestionably, [for] the allies of Allah there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.”  (Soorah Al-Yunus – 62)

As regards reactions, people are like bomb fuzes…

Some people are like “time-fuze” (detonates after a set period of time)…
They react on the axis of time. As the time-fuse is used in self-destruct (after some seconds, minutes, hours, days, or even months after being deployed), so are these people…..

Some people are like “contact fuze” (explodes on impact)….
They react on contact only…. As the impacts are unpredictable due to surface involved, so are these people…. They are unreliable.

Some people are like “proximity fuze” (explodes the bomb automatically when the distance to the target becomes smaller than a predetermined value)
Their actions and responses depend on the distances…. Distances of time and space…… Distances in interactions, associations and relations…. As the proximity fuse is more sophisticated, more lethal and more effective, so are these people…

Some people are very intelligent on responses…. as latest explosives have fuzes which have time fuze in series (to ensure that they do not explode prematurely near the launcher), and have combinations of fuzes, to assure explosion, and to have built-in redundancy.

The biggest feature of “Sarahah” is the purity, sincerity and honesty that is reflected in our comments about people….

But the foremost feature is the lack of courage in us. And this thing does not let us appreciate people on their face, or point out their shortcomings directly…

Regarding appreciations and pointing-out, following is very important:

  • Appreciate in public.
  • Point out in private.
