Invocations for Protection

فَاللهُ خَيْرًا حَافِظًا وَ هُوَ اَرْحَمُ الرّا حِمِينَ

But Allah is the best to guard, and He is the most Merciful of those who show mercy.  (Surah Yusuf, 64)

INVOCATIONS FOR PROTECTION:

اللّهُمَّ رَبِّ يَسِّر ولا تُعَسِّر و تَمِّم بِالخَيْرِ

Allah! O Lord! Please make things easy and not difficult for us and let our end be on goodness.  Ameen!

فَسَهِّل يا الَهي كُلَّ صَعْبٍ بَحُرمَةِ سَيِّدِالاَبْرَار

So, O my Lord, provide ease for us in all severe matters (for the sake of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), make things easy.  Ameen!

اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسأَلُكَ العَافِيَةَ فِي الدُّنيا وَالآخِرَة

Ya Allah! I ask You for the peace and protection in this world and in the Hereafter.  Ameen!

اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَعُوذُبِكَ مِن جُهْدِالبَلآءِ وَدَرْكِ الشِّقآءِ

وَسُوءِالقَضَآءِ وَشَمَاتَةِ الاَعْدآءِ

O Allah ! I seek refuge with You from the difficult moment of clalamity and from being overtaken by destruction and from being destined to an evil end and from the malicious joy of enemies.  Ameen!

اَعُوذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّآ مَّآ تِ مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ

I seek refuge in the perfect word of Allah from the evil of what He has created.

The order of this land

Many great Muslims scholars tried to prove the existence of God and His Oneness through the systematic coordination and interdependence of the living and non-living things upon each other.

But sometimes things going or happening the opposite of that universal line of discipline also lead to believe that there is a God and He has full command over everything and everyone, either running in order or out of order.

Years ago, I heard of a foreigner who came to this land with the purpose of some technological aid or industrial development and after spending few years in Pakistan, on his return he said that the one who don’t believe in the existence of God should go to Pakistan and see who is running the country.

If only the people of Pakistan can understand this; not only the making of Pakistan but her existence, despite of all the malicious international and regional conspiracies, is a great proof of divinity.

Blessed be the sacred land
Happy be the bounteous realm
Symbol of high resolve
Land of Pakistan!
Blessed be thou, citadel of faith
The order of this sacred land
Is the might of the brotherhood of the people
May the nation, the country, and the state
Shine in glory everlasting!
Blessed be the goal of our ambition
This flag of the crescent and star
Leads the way to progress and perfection
Interpreter of our past, glory of our present
Knowledge of the future
Symbol of the Almighty’s protection

An Angel in Pakistan

“There is a community among the People of the Book who are upright. They recite God’s signs throughout the night, and they prostrate. They believe in God and the Last Day, and enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and compete in doing good. They are among the righteous. You will not be denied the reward for any good thing you do. God knows those who guard against evil…. (Qur’an, Surah Al-e-Imran/The Family of Imran 113-115)

Dr. Ruth Pfau

A great human being that very Pakistani should be proud of, proved with her character and passion that basically all religions are based upon love and humanity.

It was in early seventies when one of my uncle (my mom’s brother-in-law) who was appointed as an agriculture officer in Khairpur, Sindh was bit by some poisonous insect.  Within couple of weeks he started losing his sight along with developing severe skin problem.  At that time, Dr. Pfau was referred to him as the best skin curer .  He then moved to Karachi for regular treatment.  Every time he returned from her clinic, he glorified her politeness and kindness towards her patients, the way she handled them with a soft smile on her face and patted those who were abandoned by their own family members and relatives.  We all became big fan of her in our childhood not knowing who she really was.  We only knew her as a nice Christian foreigner.  Another admirer of Dr. Pfau’s great personality is one my cousin’s husband who got the honour of working with her.  After his matriculation, he moved to Karachi and worked with her while studying medicine.

Dr. Pfau was a nun, a reverent religious personality who dedicated her life to the people not of her faith and race, in a country situated miles away from her birth place.  She is a blessing for the people of Pakistan, a role-model for doctors, for women, for religious people and in general to us all.  May Allah (SWT) be pleased with her always.  Ameen!

“Those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabaeans and the Christians, all who believe in God and the Last Day and act rightly will feel no fear and will know no sorrow….(Qur’an, Surah Al-Maidah/The Table Spread 69)

Prayer of Slaves…

غلاموں کی نماز


کہا مجاہد ترکی نے مجھہ سے بعد نماز

طویل سجدہ ہیں کیوں اس قدر تمہارے امام

وہ سادہ مرد مجاہد وہ مومن آزاد!

خبرنہ تھی اسے کیا چیر ہے نمازغلام

ہزار کام ہیں مردان حق کو دنیا میں

انہیں کے ذوق عمل سے ہیں امتوں کے نظام

بدن غلام کا سوزعمل سے ہے محروم

کہ نے مرورغلاموں کے روزوشب پے حرام

طویل سجدہ اگر ہیں تو کیا تعجب ہے

درائے سجدہ غریبوں کواور کیا ہے کام

خدا نصیب کرے ہند کے اماموں کو!

وہ سجدہ جس میں ہے ملت کی زندگی کا پیام

علامہ اقبال

Allama Iqbal…

The lecture “Islam as a Moral and Political Ideal” was delivered at the annual session of Anjuman Himayat-i-Islam in 1909 and published in The Observer, Lahore, and The Hindustan Review, Deccan, in April and December that year respectively.

“The eternal proposition regulating the structure of Islam is that there is fear in nature and the human being must be liberated from fear and thus become conscious of himself or herself as a source of power; there is no mediator, since God is the “birthright” of every human being.

A strong will in a strong body” is the ethical ideal of Islam, completely missing in the Indian Muslim; a great personality is indeed for ethical revival of a people.  An educational system reflecting its national ideals is the next best option.

Democracy is the most important political value in Islam while two fundamental principles regulating its political structure are that (1) the law of God is supreme, since the authority of a human being except as an interpreter of law is “inimical to the unfoldment of human individuality;” and (2) all humans are equal.

Religious and social sectarianism must be condemned if the Muslim Community is to fulfill its mission of freeing the humanity of superstition.”

جرات ہو نمو کی تو فضا تنگ نہیں ہے

اے مرد خدا ملک خدا تنگ نہیں ہے
