Like millions of other pilgrims an old blind Sudanese lady Fatima, also headed for pilgrimage with her son to Makah to perform Hajj this year i.e. 2014.

She lost her eyesight seven years back. She got medication and went through several operations to get back her vision but it didn’t work.

Fatima had full conviction that she will get her sight back if she goes for Hajj and prays in holy Ka’aba. Hence, after performing Hajj she was sitting in front of the holy Ka’aba beseeching earnestly, Almighty Allah from the core of heart, to give back her sight. She prayed uncontrollably with eyes closed and tears rolling down.

One day she was again sitting and praying with her eyes closed. When she completed her prayers she opened her eyes and just couldn’t believe! She could see! She could clearly see everything. It was true! She could see. She saw her son after seven years! She at once supplicated thanking almighty for realizing her prayer.

Fatima can move freely without anyone’s help or guidance. She’s more than gratified for the miracle that happened to her personally

Belief, faith, undoubted conviction and sustained reliance on the Creator and humble prayers do work. Allah is most kind and beneficial. All praise is to HIM

May we all be forgiven and our prayers also answered. Amen

Me a woman

History portrayed me as failure

At times dust, at times wilderness

Rebuked me, thrust aside me

Each day disgracing ridiculed me

But like moon and stars on horizon

I kept getting higher each day

Like the jumpy surfing waves

Kept surpassing seashore’s ebb

Like ambition grow and bloom

And new good spirits blossom

My aspirations swiftly boom

To keep elevating to the skies;

While you endeavored to sever me

And to bow down my being at thy feet

Like running down tears, to beseech

While fondness for beauty was there,

You remained petrified of my elation;

Thou tried to dig up my past happening s,

Remained unacquainted of my present;

Thou crushed my heart ironically,

Burnt my soul with your sniping glance

Killed me from first to last by hatred;

Intensity of malice and disrespect

My prudence and spirit decided to

Bury grief, woe, anguish, fear and gloom

There and then only;

Attiring in the robe of compassion,

Tread on the path of love;

I breathe today with a new vision

New hope new horizon—-

I am the woman!

Life is an opportunity given to satisfy the hunger and thirst of the soul regardless of any gender!


She is a foolish girl

Lives in Dream Island;

 Wrapping soft dreams

Around her, she sleeps;

What a silly girl she is

At times a century is, just a flash

At times a flash is a century to her;

Hovering on her fancy cloud,

She sets off to, such a locale

Where peace prevails around,

Where nightingales go on humming,

Where love enlightens all the time;

Where people adore each other

Where, they are known to each other,

Where, they all trust each other,

That locale is their liveliness,

That locale is their recognition;

That silly and foolish girl dreams,

Neither knows,

Nor accepts,

 That to dwell in, is not a game,

It takes time to dwell in
