Seven things about me
Thank you Ajaytao for nominating me for the award
Seven thing about me
A man who treats his relatives well
in order to return their good treatment
of him shows no real love
The man who really shows love
for his relatives is one who
treats them well
despite their being unkind to him.
Hadith of Al-Bukhaari
To get rid of sins, to make the heart shine
Needs to hug black stone of Kaaba shrine
originally composed by Razia Subhan in Urdu
— Are there any Al-Quran verses that tell about sadaqah (charity)?
Yes! One of them is Surah Al-Nisa verse 114, which means; No good is there in much of their private conversation, except for those who enjoin (human)to give charity or provide peace between people. And whoever does that seeking means to the approval of Almighty Allah-then We are going to give him a great reward
—– Are there any Al-Quran verses stating about reward for charity?
Certainly! One of them is Surah Al-Hadid verse 18, which means; Indeed, the people who pratice charity either men or women and (they who) have loaned Almighty Allah a goodly loan-it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward
Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith (May Allah be pleased with her), the Mother of the Believers, reported:
The Prophet (ﷺ) came out from my apartment in the morning as I was busy in performing the dawn prayer. He came back in the forenoon and found me sitting there. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon the Prophet said, “I recited four words three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all you have recited since morning, these will be heavier. These are:
Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi, wa zinatah `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi
[Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words (for His Praise)].”
When loneliness reign this home
When the walls drape green liana
When gloom’s soft dust wraps my stuff
When winds also become tranquil
You, then—-leave all the doors open
Behold my musical instruments, and
Select and spread new melody of the season
Do away with all my recollections
And——- forget me forever
Shazia Tsneem s/o Abida Iqbal Azad
In any quiet moment
In any moment of love
When the sun is setting
When the sun is rising
Sometimes in a whisper
Say that I love you——!
Sometimes in expressions
Sometimes in a statement
Sometimes through your eyes
Sometimes in silence
Sometimes in our speaking
Say that; I love you
Sometimes on a quiet path
Sometimes on a busy highway
Sometime on the home terrace
Say it in my ears, I love you
On my writing table
Leave a message of love
In my busy schedule
Say, I love you
Say, I love you

They came—- they searched my home
And they found a love letter
From one of my very old books
And torn to shreds, rose flower!
That got crushed under a long boot
A list of household things
from my old diary
of the last days of the month
that couldn’t be bought;
this list was ironically laughed at
and torn into pieces;
my genuine brilliant dated prose
was taken into custody!
I’m imprisoned now
For the crime of not having
Any ammo for self defense
My children are witnesses against me
And so are my neighbors
