Pleasant or unpleasant, all will elapse,

This life’s boat will accordingly elapse;

Birds will never find it’s way to flowers,

Each one of the birds will thus elapse;

This time will not live forever, seamen,

Someone will one day dive into Ganges;

Hither it’s me, thither it’s conditions,

She  will soon lose this  competition;

Self pretense is not recommended, Lord,

This esteem  undeniably passes away Lord;

Desires have never realized  nor will ever,

The whole life will elapse in same manner;

How long will Haali ‘s voice be unheard?

His say-so will do  something far-fetched !

 

Translation of Altaf Hussein Haali

index

Almighty Allah had given the power to understand the languages of all humans, animals, birds and insects to His honorable Prophet Hazrat Suleman (peace is upon him).
Hazrat Suleman (peace is upon him) was on the way to some place with his huge flock of humans, animals, birds and jinns. Hazrat Suleman was a very dignified and prudent king. So there was discipline and control in his convoy. No one in the convoy dared to go against the set rules.
Crossing over the mountains, rivers and deserts they were going alongside the vast valley of Nimal.
There were millions of holes in the and in the grounds where the nimals (ants) lived.
There lived the Queen of ants too. The Queen Ant was a very responsible and caring Queen. All the ants loved their Queen for her best administration.
The ants were so loyal to their Queen that they were ready to give their life for her in case of need.
The Queen was on her daily round in the valley with her workforce to check if there was any problem. She sensed a strange sound on the ground coming from far off. She stopped to pay attention to the sound carefully.
The Queen said: “It seems as if some huge convoy is coming towards our valley. The sound depicts that huge animals are coming too. It’s Hazrat Suleman’s convoy.”

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawnmower is broken.thumb_COLOURBOX5225655

Fly, when water dries

The Peacock’s Complain

 

One summer night Grandpa was telling bed time story to his grandchildren. It was his most favorite daily routine. He always began his story by praising God.

Grandpa said; “All praise to almighty God who is supreme and perfect, otherwise all that exists has some beauty and some defect.

The moon is so beautiful but has dark patches on its surface. The donkey is very hard working but its voice is worst of all. Thus one should live cheerfully with what ever is bestowed upon him and never complain.”

Aliza interrupted and said; “Like my peacock who is always crying.” “Yes, said grandpa, like your peacock. Though it has most beautiful feathers and dances so gracefully. But having ugly feet and voice make him moans. Grandpa said that; “Each one has its special gift. You have such beauty, the nightingale has his song, the owl has his eyes the eagle his strength, the lion is so powerful

So if one is lacking something he should not complain.”

Mother called every one to be in their bed so with good night hugs they all went to their rooms.

Moral : Don’t complain, be contented with what you have !

A wise man is he who does not grieve for the thing which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has. blue peacock

 

advice,

Once upon a time, a fox was walking alongside a field. Cool breeze and hopping rabbits and birds were fun to watch.  The sly fox was engrossed in enjoying the sightseeing.  After sometime it wanted to rest for a while before going to its home. As it was evening and   getting dark, so she didn’t  see the well.  As soon as stepped on the wall, she fell down into the well.  Though she tried very hard but couldn’t get out. When she was about to give up, just then, a goat came to quench its thirst from the same well.

“What on earth! Are you doing down there?”  The goat asked in astonishment.

“Haven’t you heard about the severe shortage of water in the forest? So as soon as I heard that, I jumped down here. Here is enough water. It is the best water I have ever tasted. I have drunk so much that I cannot move. I would also advise you to come down too.” The sly Fox said.

When the Silly goat heard that, he immediately jumped into the well without thinking. The fox at once jumped onto the goat’s back, and using its long  strong horn, climbing,  got out of the well safely.

After getting out he gave the unhappy goat, the following advice.

“Next time, make sure to look before you leap”.

 

Moral of the story: It is not safe to trust the advice of a man in difficulties.

A donkey and a cock were two good friends. They lived happily together in a farmyard. One day a hungry lion was passing through that farm.  He saw a stout and well fed donkey. The Lion, being starving, decided to make a meal of it.  He stood there, thinking, as to, how to make the donkey come out from the farm.

The cock was watching the lion.  The Lion did not see the cock, as he was engrossed in the donkey only. The cock realized that the lion is up to something.

The cock is a proud bird.   There is also, a saying that the cock’s crow irritates the lion a lot.   To upset the lion He started flapping his wings and crowing loudly gave one of its proudest cock-a-doodle-dos. This protest surprised the Lion who had not seen the bird in the farm.
Not knowing who was making this noise, the Lion turned and ran in alarm.
The Donkey who had been listening to the Cock crow, about saw this as a chance to prove his own worth. Thinking the Lion coward, who fears a bird, the donkey, began to chase the mighty Lion feeling proud of him.

Soon the Lion thought, “Why I’m running away? I shall turn and fight.”

The Lion turned his head, ready for a fierce fight, but saw it was only a Donkey who had been chasing him.   He was too delighted to see his own prey coming towards him.  The Lion jumped at the poor Donkey and killed him.  As he began to eat, he paused and sighed slowly, “Today I have been fooled.  My own prey chased me!

 

MORAL OF THE STORY:

Think before you leap!

 

 

 

Mr. Ali ordered to cut down all  pine, birch, teak, walnut trees and creepers like bougainvillea, that not only adorned the whole scenario of his chalet,  but also provided, fruits, shade and shelter to the birds. The reason for this treachery was that a branch of eucalyptus fell on his grandson, Hassan. Hassan’s arm got fractured.

Nobody dared speak a word against this unkind act or say no, to execute his inflexible orders.

Axes, ropes and saws were all collected in the lawn. Everyone waited anxiously for the woodcutters.

Birds on the trees twitchily looked at their nests. They too sensed that something awful is to happen.

Suddenly little Hassan came running and dashed into his grandpa.  Mr. Ali forgot everything except to create panic. Doctors, nurses, attendants, servants were called to look after Hassan. He was the apple of his grandpa’s eyes.

The birds got one more night to rest in their nests. Birds were agitated too. They chirped, twittered, and squeaked noisily making Mr. Ali more irritated. He wanted his orders to put into practice at once.

At dinner table Hassan’s words silenced everyone. He said: “Grandpa, mommy and dad, will all of you break your arms because my arm is broken?”

Everyone was speechless.

The birds babbling for some time the slept peacefully————–

 

Next day with the new rising sun they   hid themselves on the roof   of monkeys’ big cage. The zookeepers would put them in cages too if they seen them.

With the nightfall they gathered again to discuss and finalize the plan of freeing other animals in the zoo. After a hot discussion it was decided that only those animals would be supported to flee who really want to   go back to the jungle.

Next day the falcons and monkeys kept an eagle’s eye on the zookeepers’ activities. They discovered the secret places where the   keys of the cages were kept. The monkeys also observed how to lock and unlock.

The darkness prevailed with the sun setting in the west.  The Falcons and monkeys tiptoed out of their hiding spots.

To begin with, they made sure that all the zookeepers were sleeping. Then inaudibly they started to unlock the cages. The animals were already briefed to slip away without a sound.

There were two main gates.  The animals that eagerly wanted to return to the jungle were divided in two groups.

Animals are animals after all. They have not been provided with the same wisdom as human beings by Al-mighty Allah, so when one group reached the   main gate the monkey who was leading the group just banged his head against the gate. He had forgotten to get the key of the main gate.

Luckily the guards were in deep slumber.

It was not difficult for the birds and monkeys to fly or   jump over the walls and escape but it was not easy for some animals to jump over the high walls of the zoo. They feared being caught by the watchmen but the guards being irresponsible  were half dazed too. Darkness and dim lights camouflaged them    with the trees’ shadows.

The last option they had was to breach the gates. The bulls and rams were chosen for this task. Violent blows broke the gates and the animals ran off.

The loud noise of the breaking gates    harassed those around the zoo. When people saw animals rushing out of the gates they ran yelling wildly. Cars dashed and collided hurting and killing any one who came in the way.

The animals did not take any notice of the chaos. They kept running out of the city, following the monkeys.

Hundreds of doves, parrots, skylarks, swans and many other birds flew above them in the same direction towards the jungle.

The beginning of the end J
