Writing light, on the paper,

Writing life, on the paper

What you haven’t yet read,
writing that on the paper

Have a river in my run, yet,

writing thirst on the paper

Having met a friend yet,
writing stranger on the paper

When to erase after writing,
writing amity on the paper

Crime that remained among all
remained between me and God

All considered me a stranger
as much stayed among them

My Sun was not far from me
Distance remained between night

Dialogue between me and life
was linking “now” and “then”

I am Capricorn but my being
Remained between Sagi and Scorpio

No grief was linking you and me
Yes it’s there in the course now

When did any relation love Sehar?

As close to as cheeks and lips

images

Oblivious eyes

Speckled hair

Shabby attire

Heartbroken being

Used to follow me like a shadow 

If ever met me anywhere

Turned away, uneasily

looked intently at me from distant!

Umar’s Wife Acts as Midwife
Inspire to Aspire
It is said that history repeats itself but I doubt because the event I am going to write just now is and can be read only in the books. Years have passed but I never happened to read or hear any such event been repeated. If any of my reader has any experience of such events in and around the whole wide world please do share.

Amir Ul mu’minin Hazrat Umar Farooq (radiyallahu ‘anhu) during the time of is caliphate, used to patrol the streets and suburbs of Medina himself during the night in order to be abreast with the happenings.
One night during his regular night patrols he saw a camel-hair tent pitched in an open place. He had never before seen such kind of tent so he got closer to the tent. There he saw a man sitting outside the tent and he heard a moaning and groan coming from inside the tent. Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) after greeting the stranger asked him about him and his problem. The stranger told that he was from the desert. He had come to seek help from the Amir Ul mu’minin Hazrat Umar Farooq. He refused to share with Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu. Hazrat Umar insisted that may be he could help him at that hour of his need at night. So the stranger told him that his wife is having labor pains and there is No one with her to help.
Hazrat Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) got up instantly n headed towards his home. On reaching home he broached the subject to his wife Umme Kulthoom, “Allah ta’ala has brought you an opportunity to receive great blessings.” What is it O, Mir Ul mu’minin?”
Umar said” there is a poor desert woman’s in labor pains out therewith none to attend her. ”Umme Kulthoom (radiyallahu ‘anha) said that she was ready to help if it pleases Umar.

Umme Kulthoom (radiyallahu ‘an hu) was after all daughter of Bibi Fatima (radiyallahu ‘anha) and grand daughter of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wassallam)
Umar said, ” then you should make all due haste. Also take some butter, pan, supplies and other necessities needed during the child birth.”
Umme Kulthoom left for the place with all things required there in the tent. Umar followed her. She entered the tent while Umar made a fire and occupied himself with cooking which those people could eat. After short while Umme Kulthoom (radiyallahu ‘anha) called out from inside the tent, “Amir al mu’minin, congratulate your friend on the birth of a son.”
The person was quite embarrassed when he heard the title of Amir Ul mu’minin and realized the position of the person who had been serving him. But Umar radiyallahu ‘anha) put all his fears at rest, saying, ‘That is all right, there is nothing to worry about.”
He then placed the pan near the tent, asking his wife to take it and feed the woman. She fed her and returned the pan to Umar. Then Umar asked the Bedouin to eat also as he had been awake all night. Having served Umar and his wife returned home telling the Bedouin < " come tomorrow, I shall see what I can do for you."
Is there any king, nay a petty chief or even an ordinary middle class person of today who will take his wife out at dead night in the wilderness to attend a poor stranger woman n prepares food. So dear readers we should realize that unless we really follow the footsteps of those Allah fearing people we can not deserve the special blessings of almighty Allah
