My Syria!

Chess was my favourite game when I was in college and then I got busy with life and had no time for it. However I was amazed to see that it is not only played on the board. Nowadays I am watching a hideous game of chess that is being played on the land of my Brothers and Sisters. Although I am yet unable to percieve the difference between these two players. Their role appear similar, with apparently different names. Also I am terrified to see that the main objective of chess is altered here. I doubt it is not being played with the intention to checkmate the opponent but to capture the pawns. Poor pawns!

Do you know what death is? Lying there, hearing things and knowing that there is absolutely nothing that you can do, that is death. And I am dying everyday. I feel like we all will be killed in the same way someday, castrated and helpless!

I believe in the power of prayers but I don’t have the courage to sit in front of Allah. He can ask me what are you doing for them? You are a Munafiq. I am afraid to pray, yet there is a faint voice deep inside me who is continuously praying.

May Allah safe my people from the so-called peacemakers and let them see the beautiful colors of sunrise and dance to the songs of koel. Ameen.


What is happening in Pakistan?

I was on call yesterday. I am doing my residency in Psychiatry ward which is located next to the main Emergency Department of the hospital. I was aware that people are protesting against the government and all roads were blocked but there was nothing to be worried about. Suddenly after 4 pm, I started to hear ambulance sirens more than usual and that made me suspicious so I thought to go to the ER and check out what was happening. I was amazed to see many people coming with the gunshots wounds and apparently they were all from a particular sect. That was not something I was expecting. Anyway I got home safely but there on my way to home, I encountered many roads that were blocked due to the protest, namely Shahra e Faisal, MA Jinnah road and area near Civic Centre.

So I did research on what is happening and I was totally surprised, knowing that this beloved country Pakistan is made on the name of Islam.

There is a sect in Pakistan, known as Qadiyani. They don’t believe that Prophet Muhammad SAW is the last Prophet of Allah and they have there own prophets after Muhammad SAW and they are coming uptil now. That is fine, we have a lot of people that don’t follow Islam and we respect them all because that is what my Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW taught us to do. But because Pakistan is an Islamic country, made in the name of Islam alhamdulillah by the efforts of our great leader Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the greatest leader we have ever had, so there is a rule in the constituation that any person who is fighting for the President seat should fill a form in which they also solemnly swear that Prophet Muhammad SAW is the last prophet of Allah. 

What happened overnight was that someone changed the word ” I solemnly swear” (Qasam khata hun) to simply ” I accept” (Iqrar karta hun), without letting the people of Pakistan even know about it. Now if a person does anything after taking the oath, it is an offence and s/he could get punishment for that according to the law but when it is only a casual acceptance, they are free from any punishment. So only by changing a single word, that too against the law, they made a way for Qadiyanis to the President seat because after all they consider themselves as Muslims so can technically stand for the Preseident seat but because of this particular clause they could not do this before. What a shame to the Goverment of Pakistan!

Alhamdulillah there are people in Pakistan who knows the law and also knows the pain that our forefathers went through for getting a separate country where we can practice Islam without any restrictions, they noticed it quickly and started a protest. Government, as ignorant as ever, said that it was a printing error. Protesters demanded that the name of that person who did this against the law which is not only an offence but also an act of disloyalty and perfidy, should be announced and I don’t think that is wrong. In fact that is what Government should do it on his own. But as usual there was nothing that was done. Worst happened yesterday when the government started a physical action against the protestors and chaos spreaded in support/against the protestors in the whole country.

Now I am still not supporting the voilence and prostest, not because they shouldn’t do it but because this is something my Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW dislikes. I also believe that there might be some hidden political agendas of protestors too but the main thing that started everything is still right and cannot be denied.

I believe that the person or persons who did this unforgivable act should not be eligible to stay on any govermnet post and also some reliable and strict measures should be made to ensure the security of our Beloved Country and it’s laws.

I also believe that protestors should end this, not for the government but for the sake of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW because I am sure that He is watching all this and also His followers who are suffering. He gave us the message of tolerance and peace and forgiveness and We must keep that in mind alwaysss, no matter what happens. 

May Allah keep my country safe and progressing and my people safe and sane. Ameen. May Allah help us in practicing the real Islam and the real message of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW. 

Ameen Ya Rub-ul-Alameen!

Since yesterday, the biggest talk of the town is none other than the suicide act of two teenager school students who committed suicide because their parents had not allowed them to get married. I mean at the age of hardly 16, with no degree in hand, they wanted to get married? Is that what we are teaching our children? Why the parents are not keeping a check on their children when they are spending their whole day on TV and internet? Why are we letting our children to get influenced by media? Where are the parents of our nation?
Teens are falling in love, school going children are talking about sex, boys are cheating on girls,
girls are showing off their bodies, a 12 year old guy is supporting gay marriages, teens are attempting suicide. What the hell is going on in our society?? I still remember the time when my 13 year old sister was in 6th grade and she told me that her class fellow broke up with her
boyfriend and I was like when I was of her age I could not even tie my hair.
What are we doing about it? Nothing. No one seems to care about it.
We only know one thing that whenever such thing happens, put all the blame on International media and you have done your duty. And that’s right too. What else do you expect from children who grow up watching intimate scenes and item numbers? But unfortunately
International media is not the only culprit now, some Pakistani movies are just heading of in the same direction. Item numbers, useless love stories, short clothes and Indian inspired personalities? Wake up everyone. This is not us. This is not our values.
It’s time to take a stand. We need to change our system. We need to change a lot of things but before that we need to change ourselves. We need to focus on the education system of our country that is promoting love stories more than education. We need to understand that education is not just making a child cram their text books, it is much more than that. It is about making a child so strong that he can differentiate between what’s good and what’s bad. It is about teaching them our values, moral as well as Islamic values.
All the bad things are happening due to the combined effects of media and lack of our Islamic and moral values. I totally agree with Will smith’s last Facebook status which says,
                            “Our world is officially broken. It’s time to take a stand.”
