I have been super busy Learning Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects.this is one of the reason I have been far away from Blogging. Well now that i can create my own Posters so lemme wish you all Happy Eid Mubarak.
So Farheen Siddique on her Blog challenged , and Challenged accepted 😛 ok thanks alot for remembering me in this. Im humbled.
ok in these 3 days i will try to make a point. why do we Muslims Fast whole month for almost 29 or 30 days? whats the benefit of this all. and i will conclude my point by an equation .
So day 1 .
Why do we Fast ?
Since its a Quote Challenge , so i will Quote from the Quran .
“O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may have Taqwa.” 2:183.
What is taqwa, mostly it is translated as Fear of Allah and i strongly disagree with this defination. Fear is translated as Khauf in arabic. Taqwa is having Conscious of Allah.
So i end the day of 3 days Quote challange with this equation.
Fasting= Taqwa .
Next day i will explain what will happen if you attain taqwa.
(If you want to take this challenge tell me, i don’t want to annoy any one by tagging in ).
After spending all day reading Allama Iqbal’s poetry , quotations now im feeling tired.I think i should roll towards my bed.now im in my bed, looking at the Allama Iqbal’s photo hanging on the wall. I don’t know whats wrong with this picture today,it is looking weird than usual.Allama Iqbal looking upset in this pic.i dont know why he is looking sad ? even today it is his birthday(9th november) , he should be looking happier (me talking to my self). Allama Iqbal: hey kid !
Me: who is it ? (looking down my bed)
Allama Iqbal: not there kid, here !
Me: wohoooooooooo! damn,how u did this ?
Allama Iqbal : what ?
Me: yo! is it your ghost ?
Allama Iqbal: (no Answer )
Me: hey is it some kind of new animation ? is it some new kind of steve job’s creation? naah, he is dead ,it is something else.who are you ? Allama Iqbal: it is me,Mohammad Iqbal.
Me: waooo man, wait there Sir, I shall show it to my mom and family . Allama Iqbal: No way !
Me: ok, by the way ,why so serious ? lets put a Smile on your face 😛
Allama Iqbal: i have no reason to smile.
Me: but why Sir ?
Allama Iqbal : because this is not the Pakistan,what I dream t of ,what happend to the Falcons(youth/shaheen) of this nation ? they even forgot how to fly ?
Me: Sir calm down,take a deep breath,may I bring you water to drink ? Allama Iqbal : ( Inhales) this nation is lost,they have forgotten, how their ancestors sacrificed their lives , so this generation can live with freedom.but still I am not hopeless.
Me:but how come you have some hope remaining ? Allama Iqbal: because a Believer never losses his hope,even in the darkness, a believer hopes for the light. God is not a dead equation.
Me : tell me more about believer !
Allama Iqbal : I tell you the sign of a believer,when death comes,there is a smile on his face .
Me : who is unbeliever ?and tell me something about death?
Allama Iqbal : Unbeliever is he who follows predestination if he be Muslim,Faithful is he, if he is the divine destiny. Death does not exist,it is a life that is a predominant reality ,not death.
Me: Sir why Islam is suffering these days ?
Allama Iqbal : no its lost muslims ,who are suffering,Islam cannot suffer,Islam is itself a destiny and will not suffer destiny.
Me : Sir you were the mentor for this nation, this nation really miss you and needs you, please come back.
Allama Iqbal : my time is over, and I was not a mentor for this nation, the mentor for this nation is Quran and Sunnah , if all the muslims stick to it, they will never go astray even in the dark times.
Me : (nodding my head, in yes ) .
Allama Iqbal : Become dust and they will be thrown in the air, become stone and the will throw thee on glass.
Me: waoo, your words have power.
Allama Iqbal : words without power is mere philosophy and vision with out power does bring moral elevation but cannot give a lasting culture . Me : So what this nation should start doing ?
Allama Iqbal : why should I ask the wise men:where is my beginning ? i am busy with the thought ,where will be my end ?
Me : well said sir.(nodding my head in yes).Sir you were right , when you said ” a nation are born in the hearts of the poets ,they prosper and dies in the hands of the politicians”.
Allama Iqbal: Art if the object of poetry is,to make men,then the poetry is the heir of prophecy.
Me: Sir,what thought made you a dreamer of this nation ?
Allama Iqbal : the thought ,why hast thou made me born in this country,the inhabitant of which is satisfied with being a slave ?
Me: Sir how shall I live my life ?
Allama Iqbal : “Arise, and soar with the sun’s new-born rays, To breathe new life into dying nights and days.”
