“Dream”

Published April 6, 2015 by Murk Shaikh

I Dream Of The Princes Who is Nice and Kind
WHo takes me to places that i want to be mine.

who comes on a white horse, and takes me along,
takes my sorrows and never bring them back,

I dream of THe prince that i read in books,
WHen i tell my friends they think i m fool,

But they dont know that I am a girl,
Who lives in a small fantasy world.

WHere world is so beautiful and green,
Just like the world that i see in my dream.

I Dream Of the prince who will surely come
take me away to my fantasy world!!!

GOoD Old Time

illinois-early-childhoodSometimes the only thing we require is a “Break”. Break from this so called boring routine of waking up early in the morning, going to school/college/office, and coming back tired and exhausted

. I always heard our elders say that As we grow up it becomes more and more complicated. Being a kid at that time I always wanted to grow up, but now that I know that how it turns out to be to actually be a grown up is so PATHETIC!!!

I miss MY evenings spent with my childhood friends, playing and playing different games like hide and seek and making doll houses. Putting beautiful clothes on them visiting places and many more.

Life was so simple, there was no burden of upcoming tests, exams, stressful life,no hospital duties no responsibilities. No planning of future lives which is really difficult.

There was no hatred, jealousy or double standards, we all were what we looked like. people were not plastics. I feel like kids today don,t have that beauiful time as we used to have, Life is moving more towards materialism.

Hoping to grow up as a child was the most stupidest thing that I wanted. Life has moved like upside down, I wish i had that reverse button in my life to go back to that time and enjoy every moment of it.:!!!

PESHAWER SCHOOL ATTACK

Unable to Control my tears, it,s hard to believe that my country, my own homeland is turning into a place where there is no humanity only a place full of Monsters.

Today whatever happened in Peshawer Army Public School was Really Something out of limits. Its like this place is no more worth living, And People (so called Taaliban) behind this are worst than monsters. I wonder what they are going to get in return ? Their life and hereafter both are ruined totally.

They haven’t killed only those innocent kids but they have literally killed the whole humanity today, what kind of rivalry those psychotics could have for innocent kids? What kind of pleasure have they got by all this bullshit.

I Wonder are they going to be same senseless as they are now when their own blood, their own kids, parents or loved ones are going to be killed like this.

This needs to be stopped now, something has to be done we have to stop this place from being invaded by those monsters. Please someone do something and stop this, this is too much suffocating.

132 innocent lives, future of our nation making me speechless.

We are not safe we are never safe, we cannot send our kids to schools, we are not sure whether they are going to return or not, what kind of place do we own, what is the use of having a separate nation/country when they cannot even provide shelter.

Do we need to stop sending kids to school? Is this what they want to make us illiterate and die.

Time to do it now or never. MAY THEY NEVER REST IN PEACE WHOEVER WAS BEHIND THIS INCIDENCE.!!!!!!

“Feelings, can it be Same?”

Published October 28, 2014 by Murk Shaikh

I have been thinking about that for period of time, thinking it over and over again couldn’t make out whether  feelings can be same or not, at one moment i thought yes they can be and on other i was completely denying it.

We come across different people in our life, some of them become our best buddies, some of them are good to get along, some of them are like friends forever, but what if a person whom you consider your closed one, suddenly hurts you so badly that you are unable to get on and lose that so called “trust” that you, used to have on people.

For the time being it seems that we have brought things back to normal, we try to forget it and move on but we cannot build that level of trust again on the same person that we used to have, even we become kind of fragile, and start doubting about every other person around.

This is how life is, that is how feelings cannot be the same again, so we must be very careful in dealing with our close ones and should try not to hurt them so badly that they feel it hard to get back on.

Your words can hurt someone more than you intended too and therefore it is important that you take a moment to think before you speak, no matter your mood. Words are expensive; once they are said they cannot be taken back. Chose your words wisely or else it can become costly to you.

We can sometimes forget the words but we can never forget the way they made us feel!!!!

Your opinion will be appreciated:)

Sha’baan: Misconceptions and Realities

Growing up in Pakistan, the month of Sha’baan would bring in a lot of excitement and celebration. And that was because celebrating the night of the fifteenth of Sha’baan was a big thing and considered a very virtuous act, indeed. Men would gather in the masjid while the women prepared ‘Halwas’ and sweets, preparations were made for all night vigils or “Shabeenas” as they were called, buses were made available to take the men to visit the graveyards and flyers were distributed to everyone containing a long list of ‘special prayers’ so that they could stay up all night praying.

But, Alhamdulillaah, how Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala protects His Deen. When Allaah enabled me to study this beautiful religion of ours, all that changed. I realized that all those ‘special prayers’, all those night vigils, all those Halwas and all those…

Problems are Blessings

Published January 18, 2014 by Murk Shaikh

” You must be thinking that i might have lost my mind that i m saying problems are blesings. But they actually are whenever we dont have any problems and  are we are living a happy life we engage our selves . we are so much engaged that we forget Allah subhanuatAllah… then again when something wrong suddenly happens to us we remember him. We immediately rush towards HIm for help:)

For example if someone hurts us then we realize that Allah pak is the one who is never going to hurt us, or sometimes if we unintentionally commit a mistake or disobey our boss at Work he definitely insults us infront of the whole staff and we realize that we have been disobeying Allah pak from a long time and He didnt even insult us or made us feel Bad, beshak He is one who is REHMAN AND RAHEEM. He is the one who always forgives us no matter ho badly we have been in our past. And after forgiving He never mentions that how he forgave us when we were full of sins. 

In this way i consider problems to be as a blessing too, it  depends upon us whether we consider them to be a blessing or a curse. We should try to be closer to Him instead of forgetting Him:)

May Allah pak shows us the right path Ameen.

 

Music in Islam

Published December 19, 2013 by Murk Shaikh

music is soothing to soul thats what many people say and think, but sometimes it masters our soul in a way that it direct ourselves to shirk.

Sometimes few of the things become so common in our lives that, we dont consider them as bad or something prohibitted, music is also one of them it is spreading so rapidly,that it has become a part of our daily life even it is played in almost all the restaurants and deparmental stores.

Young generation is so much obsessed that they like to listen to it almost all the time,
while going to bed or doing homework or doing any other chores they want that noise in the background, but if we think this issue critically it actually is misleading us, Everything that is around has some harmful as well as useful effects if we feel it as something relaxing or soothing, but it is addictive too, we must not allow things to take control over us,
There is a saying that let not the world lead you but you should lead the world.

Many muslims consider music to be allowed in Islam, there are great different opinions as far as Muslims are concerned whether music is allowed or not,

There is no verse in Quran directly prohibitting music, but there are indications, Allah pak says in Quran in surah Luqman verse no:6

” And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (i.e.music, singing, etc.) to mislead (men) from the Path of Allah without knowledge, and takes it (the Path of Allah, the Verses of the Qur’an) by way of mockery.
For such there will be a humiliating torment (in the Hell-fire).”                                                  This idle tales probably refers to unislamic songs and music tales, as far as Prophet prohibitting music there are various Sahih hadith, so If you read the hadith of Muhammad SAW there will be no doubt whether it is permitted or not.

Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW says: it is mentioned in Sahih bukhari hadith No:5590 volume 7:

“There will be some people who will consider illegal fornication, the wearing of silk, drinking of Alcohol and use of musical instruments as lawful.

This hadith shows certain things that are prohibitted and musical instruments are mentioned among them.

There are other Sahih hadith that permit some musical instruments as halal say duff tambourine) if we read hadith of sahih bukhaari vol 5 hadith number 4001:

“Narrated Ar-Rubal’ hint
Mu’awwidh: The Prophet jW came to me
after on the morning of consummating my
marriage and sat down on my bed, as you
(the subnarrator) are sitting now, and small
girls were beating the tambourine and singing
in lamentation of my fathers who had been
killed on the day of the battle of Badr. Then
one of the girls said, “There is a Prophet
amongst us who knows what will happen
tomorrow.” The Prophet ç said (to her),
“Do not say this, but go on saying what you
have spoken before.”

In the above hadith it is clear that music is prohibitted, except only tambourine, and something that is prohibitted from Allah pak we shouldnot adopt it in our lives.
I heard somewhere that “Momin ke liye dunya ek Qaid khaana hai” i really like these lines. this world is like an aazmaaish for us as there is a saying ” as you sow, so shall you reap”  so whatever we are doing in this Dunya,
we,ll have to face its consequences at the end.
May Allah pak makes this exam of dunya easier for us.:)
