[If your heart is alive and alert then gradually Allah gives his banda
different ways (perspective) to look at things.]


What is a Friend : Poem By Arfa Karim Randhwa

Published March 24, 2012 by Murk Shaikh

A friend is someone who understands and someone you can trust.

They will listen to you both night and day without ever making a fuss.

A friend will stand by your side when you are right and sometimes when you are wrong.

They will hold you up when you are weak and provide support to make you strong.

A friend’s love is unconditional and unique in every way.

And when you have problems a true friend will kneel with you and pray.

A friend will stand by your side through thick and thin.

And whenever everyone have deserted you they still will be your friend.

A friend once said to me that a friend is sent from God above and I believe this to be true.

Because God has sent a friend to me and that friend to me is YOU. 

White Rose : Poem By Arfa Karim Randhwa

Published March 24, 2012 by Murk Shaikh
In the storm
Stands the white rose
tumultuous waves
of destruction abound her
Yet tall is the white rose
strong in the face
Of the sensed doom around her
And she does not bow down

Pure is the white rose
In the compost earth
growing eternal strength
in the nights that so hurt

I see not the white rose
She is so far away
But I long to protect her
But only the words can I say

So I send her my words
And my poets heart
To help her when
there is hope to see her through

Be Strong little flower
Your heart will guide true
And as long as you want
I will always talk to you

‘Fiza-e-Badr paida kar
farishtey teri nusrat ko
utar saktey hein gardon se
qataar andar qataar ab bhi’
This piece of Iqbal’s poetry means to say that if we create the conditions of Badr, Allah’s help is bound to come. We need to correct our own selves first, then form a group of like-minded people (such as our neighbours and friends) and then expand. Everyone should perform their own obligations to Allah at least, for if they die any day, what answer will they give to Allah?
