THE VICTIM VIRUS


'THE ONLY IMPORTANT THING IN A BOOK IS THE MEANING IT HAS FOR YOU' 
W. SOMERSET MAUGHAM 


The victim virus - the suffering addiction. 

The role of playing a victim is an addiction very harmful, as it leads to physical, mental and emotional misery.

The chronic complaining state creates inner contractions, that prevent essential energies from flowing as they should, and drain our vital forces. 

According to the Law of Attraction and its principles, when we act act the victim, we are bound to attract to us persons and situations, that will make us suffer. So stop complaining and start accepting and honoring WHAT IS and see your life change for the better. 

Studies have proved that when you are calm, quiet and at peace with your self, the frontal lobes of your brain are activated, this is the area of the brain, where creativity and the ability to make innovative decisions are lodged. 

When you are stressed out, the blood stream abandons the frontal area of the brain, and concentrates in the back part of the brain, where past survival lessons, flight and fight responses learnt long time ago are aroused. These are termed as negative emotional charge, detrimental to your total well being. 

When we go through any inner tension, we usually make unconscious decisions based on such ideas as "I am not good enough"  or " I won't be able to do it". These decisions are tinted with negative perception of ourselves and, if we believe in it, it leaves its imprint on our energy field and conducts our life. 

In his book 'The Biology of Beliefs' Dr. Bruce Lipton shows us scientifically, how environmental stimulates 'triggers' intracellular proteins, and it is these proteins that enact the DNA. In this way the cancer gene lies dormant until the environment stimulates it. He points that to fully support cellular health we can no longer ignore the role of consciousness and that includes our own thinking. 

So it can be surmised that our thinking affects are cellular health to a great degree. Dr. Lipton explains that cellular health, growth, and reproduction respond favorably to thoughts of love and harmony, whereas the so called negative thoughts create the opposite in us. 

So in order to have a healthy thriving cellular body, we should start by having  positive thoughts, learning to pursue a life of calm and contentment, and accepting WHAT IS.

The Brat called “Flash”

“You are THE FLASH!”
“The fastest!”
“No! Dont or you will win from me!”
“Wow you are the first!”
Numerous such comments and an endless list of acts I have to perform to make AA do his homework, go to the madrasa, take a bath and learn his dictation. The boy works anti-clockwise. To motivate him to do something either I have to tell him NOT to as I might lose from him or I have to convince him that he is brilliant and turn him into some sort of a star shining in the darkest of the skies.

Phew! Everyday I have to be more innovative than the last to make sure that he thinks mummy is putting an extra effort in her acts! (I guess thats where he gets his drive from… a rush of adrenalin from the absolutely bewitching performance :p)

image

I’m certain by now I could’ve easily written a short book on ‘how to innovatively handle a 6 year old brat’. Nevertheless one thing is for certain anger and shouts dont work on such kids. They become more adamant and miserable to handle. The only solution is the indirect approach and I definitely find immense solace in this one. The boy readily succumbs to my stories and the imagery I create for him, hence making my life calmer, simpler and productive.

I hope this strategy of acts and performances lasts me longer before its value expires and I have to come up with a different plan altogether. I hope the little boy grows up well; more sensible and less hyper active than he is today!

Counting on my motivational techniques,

Jinnah, anyone?

We are a nation who need a template for everything. We lack embedded values and core morals to form the foundation on which decision making could be done. We are emotional and believe in going with the flow. The sad part is that in doing  what we do, we never really understand who we really are?, What is our purpose? And what we really are aiming for ! With a hazy belief system and weak core values we usually spend our lives living according to how others were living at that time while those others were themselves on the very some boat.

For everything we need an aid of an already tried and tested safe example without sometimes even using common sense. We dwell in these safe havens, fearing we would tap on our undiscovered capabilities and might actually improve our school of thought and actions.

If the current trend of political sit ins is there, so all that everyone talks about and ponders about is this. If there is a tradition of celebrating Eid, then all shopping MUST be done in the last week. If Sunday is a holiday, then sleeping till noon is the only definition left to it. If there is a holiday then only it means, its a special day or some catastrophe has resulted in the city. If the media says its breaking news, it has to be important! If we get a holiday on 14th August, its Independence Day And if we DONT get a holiday on 11th September, then we casually forget THE MAN who was responsible for all these days of independence, all the freedom of media, and the one who actually made this homeland safe to profess and practice Islam!

image

We should really peep into our souls and align our morals before we are attacked on the basis of our feeble values and belief system.

Meditation class

Work offers a meditation class.  It's more of a close-your-eyes-and-relax class.  I was going for a few months and then I took the summer off.  I re-joined the class and the first class was great.  I felt as if I hadn't truly relaxed for a while afterwards.

The class is pretty simple.  Sit, close your eyes, and breathe deeply.  There is an "instructor".  He basically just repeats, "be aware of..." over and over.  It sounds silly as I write about it, but it's actually a really fantastic half hour every week.

The class is relaxing because it is about being aware of right now.  I can't help but think about the all the good things right now.  I shouldn't need a class or an 'instructor' for that:P

Bleeding Green

Patriotism is not simply wearing and hoisting the green flag on the Independence Day, it is collecting the small paper flags lying on the floor after that.

Patrotism is not lecturing a class of students but educating them and making them learn.

It is sheer patriotism when Mr. Abbas Hussain gives his everything to instigate the passion in teachers and professors to bring down the walls of embedded cultural backlash and think about the paradigms that could be achieved through planning for the welfare of the students of our nation.

Patriotism is not talking about reforms and only being critical of every single thing concluding in the state but it is about people like Mr. Imran Khan bringing reforms.

It is not about watching the crowd on the television sets but it is about being part of it ! It is about playing your apparently meagre yet enormous role in making things better for your people and everyone around you.

Patriotism is when you pick up an empty pack of snack, educate a child you meet, feed a poor human on your way, follow traffic rules, respect your surroundings and get up every morning with a thought “What could I do today to make things better for the people of my country and everything around me?”

Yes it is about you! It is about me! It is about US! It is about the difference we all make everyday with our thoughts, actions and mostly reactions.

The ‘Selfie’ Virus

There was something absolutely bizzare about the lady just in front of me. She kept on tilting her head, brushing her hair one way and the other and kept passing all the smiles even google would be short of to provide!

I was now curious and wanted to know whether why? why? why? on mighty earth someone would waste such an encyclopedia of smiles to nothing in front !

And then I lifted myself halfway from my chair and literally peeped… and aha! I found my answer… the lady had a nice smartie in her hand and the presence of mind to make the right click in the well lit location of the food court at Dolmen Mall Clifton, made her smile and pose all the way…

image

Well well well it is an era of selfies, it may be the age of information but definitely I would love to call this decade also ‘ an age of selfies ‘.

Every living toddler, every little trip or even a movie being watched and even the recent dharna being attended can become international news with a selfie beautifully photoshopped, attached to it.

People seem today in a transaction, a deal that you compliment me and I will do the same! No harm, but infact today everyone makes sure that they have their beautiful selves displayed and admired by many and more…. Indeed human instinct it is …. to be admired and appreciated… so well every era has its own fever and the fever of selfies is definitely an epidemic of the current times…

As much as I myself love to make the right click ;)

Add me in the ‘selfie’ count!

In a State of Civil War

What a show! What a perfect battle! My country yesterday faced and is facing a terrorist coup and that also not of an ordinary kind but the worst history must have known. It was the great achievement of Mr. Nawaz Sharif; the prime minister of Pakistan and his government that he faced the army of terrorists igniting a bloody debacle carrying the most lethal weapons any war or mankind must have known!

These terrorists carried with them no guns, no bombs and neither any hi fi gadgets but toddlers and sticks to aid them walk along with water bottles to quench their thirsts. Yes this was the army of terrorists Mr. Sharif along with his ‘democratic’ governmemt faced.

Speechless, spellbound and desperation is exactly what I felt while watching this episode LIVE and still viewing it LIVE. The only question left to ask the government and democracy is IS THIS NON EXISTANT DEMOCRACY, A SEAT OF A PRIME MINISTER WORTH THE LIFE OF EVERY SINGLE PAKISTANI?

Yes, every single Pakistani cause every single person fighting this battle represents every single person living in the country. Every woman and child being massacred ruthlessly is my own mother, sister and child.

This debacle has left a permament mark in the history of my nation and  every single person of the country. And yes! if this is what a revolution is to look like then this is the defining moment when the people of Pakistan are united, on the streets, helpless angry but ready and determined to sacrifice their all against decades of injustice and cruelty these fake and selfish politicians posed on them.

The constitution avenue has turned into a war zone with ironically the people fighting against their own officials and for what? For the seat that seems the most petty matter of conflict compared to the price paid in flesh and blood!
image

Shame is what I feel, sitting comfortably at my home while my brothers, sisters and children fight for a brighter future of Pakistan and its people. And wait not only fight but sacrifice their lives for us and our generations to come!

Shame Shame Shame on you Mr. Nawaz Sharif! Just when you are done auditing the amassed collections of gold and silver, let your conscience murder you with the thought of every drop of blood you shed for that seat which just is bathing with the blood of every Pakistani and their little children today.

END THE DEADLOCK PLEASE !

Its been 12 days the country is in a situation of a deadlock. There are men, women and children sitting outside the constitution avennue near the parliament house since days. There is an unbearable stench of decomposed matter and while these avennues are turned into public lavotories there are diseases going viral in the air.

Everyone talks about their mandate, all leaders inflexible and determined. Yes revolutions demand sacrifice of their people but then there are clear heavens forseeable but do we see them today is the question?

Its sad the media talks about all the rights of the people but no one mentions the conditions the people are facing. This time buying tradition is just playing havoc on the nerves of not only the people in the Azaadi Chowk but every citizen of Pakistan. The level of anxiety is at its peak at this point of time. We the citizens of Pakistan feel gripped and are extremely tensed about our brothers and sisters who are sitting at the D Chowk wishing for a revolution representing each Pakistani living in the country and abroad. Naive and coy are my people. They are innocent ones and a single loss of life will cause immeasurable heartbreak amongst the people of the country.

Please its an appeal to the government to stop the battle of nerves and give in to the people and their mandate. Please strike a balance as democracy is of the people, by the people and for them and if the people are willing to give their lives to end it, then definitely its not worth it for any government or the nation at large.

Please us the Muslims of the subcontinent have sacrificed much since the past 150 years. Lets end the tradition. The victory of the people is the only win-win situation forseeable today for the country and its so called democratic systems.

MAY ALLAH BE WITH EACH ONE OF US AND LET THE NATION COME OFF VICTORIOUSLY THROUGH THESE EXTREMELY TURBULENT TIMES. AMEEN!

A Desperate Pakistani

I am a Pakistani.

I am that Pakistani for which the Quaid struggled for a sovereign state where I could practice my religion i.e. Islam without any discrimination or fear.

My country was found on the principles of democracy giving way to the voice of people for the people and by the people.
The parliament, national assembly and other governmental bodies are supposed to be public serving bodies meant to strategize and work for the benefit of the nation and its people at large. The constitution is a sacred document defining the values and political stance of the country.

However unfortuntately my country and its people misunderstood that being the public servant of the country meant making people their servant and sucking the life and blood out of the people of the country. Round and around the ball game continued with the power being thrown from one tracheaous hand to another in the past 67 years meanwhile the army and military played their desperate roles.

Now having said all that and having numerous debates in the last 7 days on the political conditions of the country I wonder of the following unanswered questions:

If the country believes in democracy and is run on political grounds than an angry large crowd of people on the basis of sentiments and a gutsy political leader without any political negotiation could bring down the position of the head of state and threaten the government?

Second, agreeing to every single statement of Kaptaan is not only wise but inevitable for every single citizen of the nation. But is the modus operandi correct? Are the people who are put at stake whose life, time and security are being threatened every moment would be given the desired justice or it is also just taken as a mini evening concert arranged by the Tehreek to get hold of the kursi the Kaptaan is apparently desperate to get hold of?

Third, when you talk about Islamic Republic of Pakistan then exposing your women swaying to the dance moves in the rain late at night while the aiming modernistic leader dances along with the party on the containers reflects the perfect Islamic stance of the nation? Is the new Pakistan in every sense being new? Defying all ethics and core values and catering to a certain niche of the society?

Fourth the Nawaz brothers, with every move condemned and no doubt rightly so will leave their seats on the basis of an unproved fact of swindling of the votes? Now ? Well anyone can prove they swindled ? MQM ? PTI itself or etc etc.

Fifth does anyone care about the country’s economy and the problem these sit ins are posing? 7 days is a big number and it seems neither the government nor the enthusiasts much care about the economical and social conditions of the state.

Lastly, while every body is trying to have a piece of the reformist’s cake, can we be a bit more serious about this? or are we waiting for some kind of an elastic limit to be crossed so that we can revert to chaos for a few more days adding to the much deserved break the certain chunk of the nation seems to be enjoying?

Nevertheless I reserve my comments.

I only aspire for a decent amicable answer to all this… for the reform isnt a one day venture, its an entire journey, a transformation requiring foresight, intelligence, superior politics and patience.

Hopeful always,
Xeynab

The irritating WhatsApp!

Its definitely the time to rewind. With extra exposure to technology our lives have also involuntarily and recently been extra exposed. Its true facebook created quite a havoc sometimes back but today whatsApp is proving more privy and a nuisance to many.

Added features of voice messages, and now the click and send option has taken its toll on many parents whose children while fiddling with the cell phones are sending voice messages and personal pictures to an entire group of 40! (Rest assured there are many irritated sects which are already very irritated of the whatsApp disease)

Similarly the feeling of being always approachable no matter where without incurring a dime causes unnecessary messages to be sent by various senders which is again a constant source of irritation.

image

Also I feel all professional communication should be done on a professional platform in the professional working hours and whatsApp shouldnt in no way be used for professional communication. Its seems against the decorum of discipline, time and then timely management of tasks.

However having said all that, I reserve my comments and intend to share my opinion only.

Irritated,

I have always been in love with Imran Khan! When I was a teenager and hopped from one crush to another– Imran Khan, Sylvester Stallone (courtesy Cliff Hanger)  and Rahat Kazmi (courtesy Dhoop Kinaray)remained my consistent loves! (Teenagers are capable of equally and fairly swooning over multiple heart throbs!)

imran 2

My friends always knew what a big fan I was and always passed comments about his infamous love life and playboy tendencies! A friend of mine had a thick book-a pictorial biography of Imran Khan-and every time I went to her house I pored over the kaleidoscope of images and sighed, mooning over Imran in his cricket whites, or Imran looking like such a dashing gentleman in a suit, or Imran in a candid moment with his family. His aristocratic features; those crinkles near his deep set eyes; the unruly Byronian locks of hair—that inimitable cross of uniqueness which came from his brooding Pathan genes and refined Oxford breeding! What was there not to love for a girl of 13!

imran win

When he led the Pakistan Cricket team to win the 1992 cricket world cup and lifted that crystal trophy, I was ecstatic. I saw his face break into a genuine smile– a smile of unabashed joy-very unlike his usually restrained expressions- when he lifted his arms in triumph and hugged Miandad. I spent years vehemently defending his victory speech –which was anticlimatic—to my friends!

His focused efforts for the Shaukat Khamun Hospital, which paid homage to his mother, were a ray of hope for those who couldn’t go abroad for cancer treatment. Later when my mother suffered from the disease herself, my admiration for him and his venture multiplied. When I look back I faintly remember his visit to my school to collect donations for the hospital, but then I was but a mere child and still not in love with him yet! I recall I had managed to sell coupons and win an Imran’s Tigers Badge! In hindsight, it made me gleeful to know that I ‘had’ seen him in person!

imran wedingimran 4

Needless to say my name was on the list of heart broken females when he married Jemima and was even more miserable when he was separated from her years later.

 When Imran entered politics by forming his party Pakistan Tehrike Insaaf, I, like many others wondered why he wanted to get his hands dirty in the messy, gory game of politics. After all, Imran Khan had everything! Fame, fortune and a purpose! But that in itself speaks for his genuineness! He believed he could make a difference; he believed in justice and he believed that his country deserved a change!

imran 3

Today, after 18 years of struggling consistently and relentlessly in the political arena, Imran Khan has become a political force to be reckoned with! His voice calls to you and me-average Pakistanis-who wish for a better life. Average educated Pakistanis who truly want the freedom their ancestors fought for 67 years earlier. Average Pakistanis who are not industrialists or jagirdaars! Average Pakistanis who do not want to believe that going abroad might be our only option for a better quality of life where we will not have to struggle for the basic necessities of life and survival.

I do not know whether Imran Khan is our answer to a better Pakistan! Yes, he is politically still a novice! Yes, I voted for him in the 2013 elections. But I do know that the options we have as political leaders stand nowhere near the commitment Imran promises! These leaders have been tried, tested and have failed us. Time and again!

Here’s to Imran-may his streak of success in the cricket field also follow him into the political field and may he make our nation proud yet again! May he be the reason we may some day be proud to be Pakistanis!imran 5

Karachi heals !

I could see every thread of vein in my pink eye. A headache and shoulder pain accompanied the adverse effects of a tiring day. I tried as usual to shut my eye but all in vain when Ali Asghar came and started banging on my door and without a trace of mercy ordered his injured mom to get up and take him for swimming…

Absurd was the thought to me at once but I mustered up some courage cause I knew if I didnt take him, all hell will break lose in the house with spilled water, painted glasses, hight pitched television, and every five minutes escape from the house in search of cycling friends. So smart was the decision to take him to Gymkhana and let the pool there take care of the little brat on the lose.

When I reached there, I was much thankful for the right decision when the beauty of the weather took a therepautic effect on my aches and sheer dullnesses.

Around the walking track

The wind and the few windy showers was simply the best thing that could happen to anyone’s nerves. It was a typical perfect weather of Karachi we all love, and guess what… I even motivated myself to take a stroll around the walking track. The trees formed a beautiful outline on the sky while people around played cricket and absorbed every moment of the ecstatic weather today.

Well as they say, “All’s well that ends well”

Feeling much better,

67 Years of Independence

Gone are the days when celebration was anticipative in the citizens of the country on 14th of August. Since the last few years either its anticipation of a huge melo-drama by one or more of the segregated flagged representing hooligans of the state to give their poorly fixed performance in front of the entire state or its just another act, another poor joke or just another of the party stunt poorly played costing lives and scarce treasures of the nation.

Nevertheless we get what we need. Some poor mislead souls get their ray of hope, some financial bargains for their active participation while some thoroughly entertain themselves with the sensational lines and dialogues viewed on national television.

Well good for us! Atleast we have something to do, something to ponder over and now especially with additionally longer meaningless non working days contributing to the national economy, doing wonders to the welfare of the state; we are definitely glued and busy this independence day!

So, hopeful we are and will always be for thats the best we could do… sit at our homes near our television sets and hope for the best…

So, this is to another year of survival amongst the fittest :D
YES, We truly made it again!

Happy Independence Day!

Aylanto’s Apple Pie with Cinnamon Ice-Cream

I had been asked quite a few times to write about the multiple cuisines and snacks of Karachi but honestly I waited to come across something absolutely pleasurable and tummylicious that would motivate me to do so.

Today was one of the days when I savoured every bite of the dessert that was served to us at Cafe Aylanto.
Usually me and my husband have no appetite for desserts but today we were just in the ‘Celebrating Independence mode’ and hence we ordered ‘Warm Apple Pie with Cinammon Ice-cream”.
It was a while we had to wait but it was a wait that was definitely worth for!
The pie was absolutely freshly baked and looked like a cabin in which lay a bed of caramalised apples with the base immaculately done.

image

Our spoons just simply melted into the perfectly baked pie while we savored the entire dish discussing its intricate details and lavish finesse.

The warm apple pie with cinammon ice cream at Cafe Aylanto was definitely amongst the top 3 desserts I have ever enjoyed !

That was a real sweet treat!

My Students-Now my Teachers

quran 1

quran 4

Yesterday when I took my daughter for her Hifz class I was introduced to her Musaid. She’s a girl–a young petite mother– whom I had taught briefly in MSB some 10 years ago. I felt humbled. And awed!

I experienced this awe this Shehrullah too when the Hifz program was in full swing. When the clock struck 9:30 people surged into the sehan in Yusufi masjid. The air was alive with the most beloved sound-the divine melody of the recitation of Quran-e-Majeed. Some listened to the recitation on their mobiles; others memorized it from their Quran with their Musaid’s help; some roamed the sehan their eyes closed in concentration. Majority of the group leaders and facilitators in the program were young students of Jamea, Karachi; many ex-students of MSB.

quran 3

It filled my heart with awe. Pride! These young boys and girls, so refined, so sure of themselves, yet so respectful, were now teaching elders. Teaching people like me who had once been in a position to teach them.

My own Musaid was a young soft-spoken girl in her teens who listened to me patiently and motivated me enough to let me participate me in the Maqraat at the end of Shehrullah. She always had a kind word or encouraging phrase; the right tip or advice to give me. In a matter of a week she had prepared me enough to memorize till La Uqsimo–a feat I never thought I would accomplish and that too in an action-packed month like Shehrullah!

This is the wonder and uniqueness of this Burhani-Saifi Era–when our young have been fashioned into role models not just for their own generation or peers but for their elders.

A Momina-A Woman of Mettle

women 3

Thanks to the media, today’s image of a so-called strong woman has been thoroughly stereo-typed. A strong woman is usually imagined as a fierce professional who has made her way up the corporate or professional ladder in this male dominated society and on this climb she has stamped out her femininity and gentle streak to prove that she too can conquer. She wrestles to become professionally competent and competitive with their male counterparts.

I have always been an ambitious person by nature and my writing  profession had always been leading my priority list. It comes just after my faith and family.

Mufaddal Maulas Tus bayan reminding women of their intrinsic and basic role was an eye opener for me. The emphasis on making rotis; nurturing the children; being considerate of her partner’s likes and family’s preferences made me reassess my priorities.

I had the opportunity to discuss this with a good and wise elder friend.

“Is being a professional a bad thing for a woman?” I asked her, genuinely confused.

She explained to me that Maula tus is telling us the need of the times. We are living in an age where women are climbing the ladder to professional success at the cost of their marital and familial  well being.

The family remains the core unit of the society. And the woman of the house is at the heart of it. But if the woman does not see to her basic duties of taking care of her young and being a sound and loyal companion to her spouse seriously,  then she is letting the family fly off-tangent. Consequently, the entire society falters.

This is the reason why the West is resplendent with examples of broken homes and disturbed children .

Mufaddal Maula tus looks to empower women by reminding her of her core role. He TUS encourages entrepreneurship in women so they may use their time constructively by honing their skills to earn a living and contributing to the economic welfare of her family in these trying times.

This is the need of the time– a time when people are losing their basic moral values; when cultural values are being shaken from their very foundation due to the twisted images of women we are constantly being bombarded with through the media, in books and magazines. Here are  times when vulgarity has been accepted as being open-minded and one holds onto their beliefs and virtues in fear of being labelled ‘conservative’  and ‘narrow minded’!

A complete woman equals a strong woman who gracefully manages the  responsibility of her home and her family as well as feels fulfilled by pursuing her interests.

For many young women it is easy to get swept away when they see female friends around them compromising on their personal relationships due to the headiness which comes with succeeding professionally. Many a times women are taken for granted in the homes while in the work place they may be praised for their skills and endeavours. They feel they are given their due place in that foreign environ.

Here is where the men of the family come into the picture. They must make a conscious effort to appreciate their wives, sisters and daughters for the heart and soul they put in every single day into every single chore. May it be making a cup of tea for the whole family even when they crave to be served one themselves, or making a stack of rotis for the family even when they are exhausted after a grueling session of making the children do their homework; or putting a smile on their face entertaining guests even when they know they have a flooded inbox with a queue of deadlines which will have to meet by burning the midnight oil.

The appreciation may not be in words but in a smile or a kind nod. For a woman-a smile on her loved ones faces is praise enough!

A woman of strength is a woman who gracefully juggles it all–she is a multitasker! She refuses to compromise on anything and she has her priorities right! She knows what is urgent and what is important and her mind is constantly filing and sorting and sifting out details of what needs to be done next and in how much time! She is a true momina-ever ready to do her Maula’s TUS bidding, with  a heart as soft as wax and a mind as alert as a night watchman’s!

‘De-press’

Recently I had an experience of rephrasing a document on medicine. It was a detailed one offering a huge learning paradigm for me and also reinforced some of my learnt concepts about depression and its therepautic treatment.

Depression in the world of science is a disturb in the chemical balance of serontin levels. A list of medicine exists in the market for balancing them. Unfortunately these medicines specifically like Xanax, Alp and Loxotonil are counted amongst the drugs most used and abused.  Due to the initial and continuous use of it, addiction becomes inevitable and to waiver off its effect when trying to rid off the physiological system becomes very challenging, many times resulting in relapse if handled carelessly.

If there is one thing that does wonders to effectively manage your serontin levels is hi energy rigorous exercises. The process requires a lot of will power but if you really want to do it naturally without medical help, you ought to be dedicated. There is a marked decrease in the level of anxiety or depression even after 20 minutes of rigorous workout.

So, even if on medications or trying to avoid it, the moment you realize you are getting into the mode, get on your feet and run, run your way away from it. Dont let it get you…

Eid ul Fitr 1435: Mohabbat ni Roti !

The exquisite process of kneading the dough, forming small balls and then forming perfect round shaped rotis after baking them on the stove is a unique art of which was celebrated by momineen internationally specially this Eid ul Fitr.

image

Maula Aali Qadr TUS has always stressed on the importance of roti making and regarded it as a highly respected and lovely household chore. In the world of today when roti making was getting either obsolete or a job of the elderly or maids, Maula TUS revolutionized the concept of roti making and paved a beautiful path for momineen motivating them to indulge in it.

Naming it as “Mohabbat ni roti” Maula TUS stressed how a simple act of making roti from the hand and then feeding one’s own family, relatives and neighbours could unite distant hearts and bring them closer and fonder.

Aali Qadr Maula TUS, this Eid spread the universal and beautiful message of love and respect for eachother especially amongst family, relatives and neighbors. This Eid it was Maula’s TUS wish that we celebrate Eid by visiting each other and gift roti as a token of celebration.

Hence we did, many of us did gift rotis. Some did beautiful packings and some made unique styled rotis fit for the festivities of Eid. Initially it was thought, how a roti could be gifted, but once done; the realization and vision of Maula TUS was crystal clear…

May the 53rd Dai who taught us to make ‘mohabbat ni roti’ stay in health and prosperity till the last grain of food is consumed in the world. Ameen!

Celebrating love, concern and respect this Eid…

The Resurgence of the Roti


The Resurgence of the Roti
By: Modern Bhen
July 27, 2014

Many of you may have noticed the recent community-wide focus on the conservative values in which our traditions are entrenched. “Home Sciences” is receiving more attention as of late, and at the forefront of this is the Resurgence of The Roti.


This inspired me to take a closer look at this age old staple in our successively creative Bhori cuisine, ponder its seeming agelessness, simplicity, and… Okay fine, my Mom angrily waved a chakri at me and made me make Roti for our upcoming family dinner.

I’ve watched the women in my family make rotis for years. It seems simple enough. #ChallengeAccepted


10:00am - After a quick google search, I dig around for the basic ingredients required to make roti: durum wheat atta, salt, warm water.

10:07am - Water, check. Salt, check. Turns out, I do not own any variety of flour.

10:24am - Have located durum wheat atta at local urban grocery store.
They only carry a 5.5lb bag --  for $17.20

10:53am - Finally, with all ingredients on hand, I pour some atta into a bowl, add salt and water and begin kneading. Am treated to a an oddly satisfying squelching sensation, and realize kneading dough is hard work. Definitely don’t need to work out today.
2014-07-26 20.20.04.jpg

DISASTER! Have inadvertently added too much water; dough has turned into a sopping mess.

20140726_165759.jpg

11:40am - Alternating rigorously between adding more wet and dry ingredients, have finally created a somewhat accurate looking dough. Let sit for an hour, as per recipe, but the confidence gained by resolving the sopping mess is somewhat broken when I return to find it looking exactly the same. Should I wait longer? The clock is ticking though, so I trudge on.

20140726_170556.jpg                                                                                                                                                                    
1:47pm - Ready to roll out dough but realize I don’t own a rolling pin as it’s never been necessary to date. Hunt for other cylindrical objects, and find the following items:
2014-07-26 20.39.21.jpg

3:09pm - Rolling out round, even rotis is harder than one might think. (Possibly exacerbated by makeshift use of soda can as a rolling pin). I consider coming clean and admitting that despite my post-graduate education and various other qualifications... roti just isn't my forte.

4:07pm - Rotis are fried and buttered. The final product of my labor are hard frisbee-like disks with jagged, uneven edges. I am considering admitting defeat when the phone rings.

2014-07-26 20.55.11.jpg

4:11pm: FaceTime call from Mom.

“Beta, Don't be late today, ok? Matchmaker Mehmoona Aunty is coming tonight too, she'll be watching.”
“....Er... Okay." -- (#@%#)
“Did you make the rotis? How did they turn out?”
“Oh.....yeah--”
“This isn’t going to be like the chai incident again, is it beta?”
“Umm… it… er…” I make a game-time decision. “They turned out great, Mom. I'll see you in a bit!”

4:20pm - I get my mother off the phone and run outside and hail a cab.

4:37pm - I ask the cabbie to wait while I run into my local Indo-Pak grocery store and head straight for the freezer.
2014-07-26 22.28.30.jpg

5:02pm - I return to my apartment and frantically rip open the packages while simultaneously firing up my frying pan for the second time today. They must look just perfectly imperfect.

5:23pm - Twenty minutes later, I have stunning “homemade” rotis, packed and ready for dinner.

2014-07-26 22.20.45.jpg

5.5 lbs of Golden Temple’s Durum atta $17.20
Cab fare to and from Indo-Pak store $21.00
Two packets of ready-made roti $5.98
Opportunity costs $201.92
(calculated based on current earning potential and wasted precious weekend hours)
Pulling a fast one on my Mom and Matchmaker Mehmoona Aunty…
...PRICELESS

“Beta, these are excellent! Can you make them for dinner next week as well? Let me go show Matchmaker Mehmoona Aunty.....”

I make a mental note to buy my Mom a Rotimatic for Eid and smile beatifically.

“Sure,”


*Note: No rotis were harmed in the making of this blog, and for more information regarding the Rotimatic, please visit https://rotimatic.com/

In another time, at another place…

image

I sometimes wonder if it is every pain that I view from the same lens or it is just the same constant lingering vacuum in my heart that overshadows every definition of hurt, absence or my feeling of loneliness.

Yes, I wander… I wander in alleys without limitation of time, place or energy. For the spirit knows no bounds…hence I know no limits.

Love and life, the two great powers coexist, but only the interdependency of both is what makes sense. I for one like all is a victim of this imbalance of nature, but I guess life is all about it. The most difficult and challenging of the tests are when tested on this fine balance of these powers.

Yes I am wandering, searching for undefined questions, their answers and then their reasons. There is much to say, but must remain unsaid…

Asgar F (Taffakur)

RAMAZAN 1435 H

This Sehrullah was blessed to read and reflect, and make two slide share presentations, which I humbly offer as Hadiyah to my blog readers.

In the beginning of the month made  VALAYAT  - a tribute presentation to our beloved Aqa Moula (TUS) on his 1st Sehrullah as 53 rd Dai ul Mutlaq, based on my reading of the Book ' The Prophet' by Khalil Gibran.

The slide share was based on an earlier article written by me on the joyous occasion of the 88th Milad Mubaraka of our for our ever revered Hay'ul Muqadaas Sayedna Mohammad Burhanuddin Moula (RA) whose loving memories are so fresh in our hearts.

The niyat behind the presentation was to show that our valayat - our feelings  - our thoughts, each passing day are more intense - more deep - more refreshing - more uplifting and ever more rejuvenating.

 http://www.slideshare.net/asgarubi/valayat 

With the passing of each day of Sehrullah in Ibadat, as Layali Fazela approached I engrossed my self in reading about interesting scientific discoveries propounded by Dr. Michio Kaku, co-founder of String Field Theory, saw his numerous interesting videos and read articles about Biocentrism as propounded by Dr. Robert Lanza and other scientists, and at the same time reflected on lessons learnt from Spirituality.

The niyat behind this Presentation was to show that at long last Science is converging towards
Spirituality, and in the process helping in the better understanding of the Spiritual Truths.
An exiting times ahead for proponents of Spirituality.

It is only when ALLAH  WILLS TO REVEAL HIS SOURCE than and only than can one stand on the threshold of Divine Knowledge, be in amazement and in awe.  To one who is humble,  His Knowledge will be revealed to the limit HE ALONE SETS  to the true seeker of both Spirituality and Science.

Maula Aali Qadr TUS

Shehzada Idris Bhaisaheb aptly quoted when he said, “Time asks for your permission Maula whether it should carry on or pause…” Definitely for the pace, the innumerable and humanly challenging tasks Maula TUS aims and attains in a day really makes us wonder about the movement of every tick and tock. It seems Maula TUS has every tick and tock measured or vice versa every tick and tock measures Maula’s TUS pace and strives to befit its duty and service by its submission.

image

Indeed! when Muqaddas Tahir Saifuddin Maula RA quoted about Burhanuddin Maula RA that “Wealth lies under Burhanuddin’s feet” so amongst the treasures of different wealths, one of the greatest was Maula Aali Qadr TUS. He is indeed a reflection of all the jewels of wealth of the Dawat of Imam Zaman.

Indeed! when Maula Burhanuddin RA blessed us with His dua, “Khuda ghani barakat apay” so again amongst the precious jewels of prayers he blessed us also with the prayer that may we be wealthy enough of time, prayers, deeds and knowledge to be able to cope up with His extraordinary wealth of Aali Qadr TUS. For Aali Qadr Maula TUS is a rare jewel of Aali Qadr amongst the treasures of Imam uz Zaman.

Indeed! Every sight, every salami and every prayer is a mystical one leaving us breathless and in awe of the majesty in view. Caring and preparing as a father would, Maula TUS holds every momin’s hands, understands as a mother does and keeps striving to cleanse our spirit and prepare our souls for the final journey ahead.

May Maula continue with the same strength and pace in the Khidmat of Imam uz Zaman till the day the world and time moves on…
Ameen!

Changing it Up

Farida mentioned to me this morning that the past two months have brought about a lot of changes and transitions in my life. She said, why don't you write about it? Post to your blog! And she was right. 

So. taking a moment here to process the changes whirling around me. In the midst of Sherullah I haven't been reflecting much- I have been doing, going, preparing, helping, caring, fasting, praying... but not much reflecting. It hasn't been a quiet month for me, as it can be for some.


Six weeks ago, we moved from our house into the masjid house, and put our house up for sale. The house that we moved into when I was pregnant with Yusuf - the house in which both Yusuf and Nooriya were babies, took their first steps, spoke their first words, made countless memories with us. I did take a moment to say goodbye to that house, but even as I was doing so, I was looking forward. Stripped of furniture, with new carpet and new paint, ready for sale, the house looks so different. The house is still there, but the home we made within it in not there anymore. 

For now, it's here. Masjid house. New, large, filled with people much of the time- it's our temporary stop on our journey to Home. We moved and unpacked and settled in within a day. One long day. And now we have set up our routines and our habits here, and I am trying not to think about the fact that inshallah, next year, we will do this all again. In the meantime, though, I can only do shukr. For this house and the family support that this house represents. And for the family itself. Alhamdolillah, we are blessed people.

More on this later. Someone is calling Mummy :)

Little Science Guy

Yusuf loves science and experiments. Yesterday he was asking Taher about evaporation (pronouncing it EV-aporation instead of EVE-aporation, which was adorable- and he set up an experiment with two glasses of water. He placed one by the sunny window and another on the counter and he wants to see which evaporates faster. He even made a little chart to note times.

I love the things they come up with.

Celebrating 71st Milad Mubarak of Maula Aali Qadr TUS

Being a student of Ibtedaiyyah, Ali Asghar also was to make a greeting card for Maula Aali Qadr TUS on His Milad. But, the truth is he watched and glued the idea his mother gave on a yellow half of A4 sized chart paper.

With an image of Gulistan i.e. a garden of dawat, lush green with fresh flowers we made the insignia of the 71st Milad of Maulana Muffadal Saifuddin TUS. Red flowers on a yellow chart paper with green leaves gave a very nice contrast. An attractive choice for a child.

Inside we wrote this bait:

Keri dido aa dawat nu chaman phal phool se abaad;
Pilavi ilm na paani ghano jeevo, ghano jeevo… Ameen

Modern Bhen


Jagaa Wars

By: Modern Bhen
July 17, 2014 
My personal favorite night of the year is Lailatul Qadr – best described as an all-night masjid prayer lock-in. It is a night filled with spirituality, festivity, and most of all, Jagaa Wars. 
Given the present Bhori Baby Boom, masjid’s everywhere are faced with accommodating an ever-growing population within their limited confines.  On a regular night, people are generally willing to squeeze in latecomers for a quick three-rakat namaz, but a whole night consisting of dozens of namaz’, haz-e-salaat, and an overnight bag on every masila is no time for niceties.  This is all out war.

Harried masjid authorities have made attempts at strategically administering masila spots for the big night by measuring out and assigning 2x5 spots (just enough to read namaz, store a bag, and host a couple of friends between faraz) – but Lailatul Qadr is a crowd favorite, drawing never-before seen Bhen’s out of the woodwork and building excitement and chaos till civility and organization have no place in the women’s side of the masjid!


Here is what really happens. You receive your jagaa assignment a week or so in advance. If you’re satisfied, you tuck away your chitti and brag about it on your Bhori-buddies WhatsApp group, “Got a spot by the wall! #RamadhanWin!!!” However, if you’re assigned a spot next to the Bhen with the triplets, the scheming begins.

When the big night actually arrives, a veritable black market of jagaa’s opens up. Bhen’s with unexpected leg injuries, visits from Aunt Flo, or sick children will hustle in nooks and crannies to secure goods in exchange for their spots. jagaa’s against the wall in the front of the wakaf are the priciest, while the ones near bathrooms and children are considerably cheaper. Marketable items for exchange are cans of red bull, good candy, and (for the deen-not-duniya Bhen) the latest laminated pamphlet or saifa.

For those desperate Bhens in need of a spot for whom the black market has failed, there are three tactics I’ve frequently seen employed:

1.      The Creeper Bhen – First, she will set her bag down at the edge of your spot, tell you she’ll be right back, and makes herself scarce for a few minutes right before Faraz. As soon as you take your Niyat for Faraz, she returns with a pleading smile, taking advantage of your forced silence, and squeezes herself onto your masila. But she doesn’t leave. After namaz, she lingers for conversation, using her charm and candy as distractions to slowly but surely spread her masila over half of your 2x5 spot -- and suddenly you realize she has totally crept onto your spot and set up camp for the night.
 
2.       The Ninja Bhen – After Vasheque, you decide it’s time to make the rounds, get some fresh air, and maybe redo your wuzu, just in case. You spread out all the appropriate flags indicating your intention to come back (Saifa open, half eaten snacks, tasbeeh spread out, and bags carefully placed along the edge of your spot), and you decide it is safe to leave base camp.  When you return to your spot fifteen minutes later… BAM! You’ve been hit by Ninja Bhen.
Masila? Crumpled up in a corner.
Snacks? Distributed among the nearby toddlers.
Tasbeeh/Saifa? Sitting forlornly on a distant window sill.
Bag? Nowhere to be found.
And sitting in your assigned spot? Ninja Bhen. 
She’d been eyeing your prime real estate all night and was lurking close-by, just waiting for you to give her a window of opportunity.
 
3.       The Aggressive Bhen – This type of Bhen prefers a much more direct approach, and is the most difficult of the three, because this one is usually your resident outspoken 230-lb Kulsum Aunty. She won’t try to creep in or steal your spot in your absence – she will fight it out, loudly claiming that the jagaa is hers (or her poor daughter in-law’s, who is unable to get a word in edgewise). She will shout, she will appeal to those around her, she will call on the masjid authorities, and ultimately create a scene until you are forced to concede and move out of sheer embarrassment (Even though it’s your jagaa!)

Short of coming for Zohr/Asr namaz earlier in the day and sewing your masila to your spot, it is inevitable that by the end of the night, your 2x5 spot will have shrunk into a 1x3, leaving you approximately enough space to read namaz in the fetal position. This is why we equip ourselves on this Most Holiest of Nights with Patience, Forbearance, and Chocolate.

Lailatul Qadr Mubarak, and stay strong Bhens!
(and awake)

Taher Suratwala

1435

Every Ramadan without fail several people say to me some variation of, 'Fasting is so hard.  I could never...aren't you hungry?'  My usual response is something along the lines of, 'it's really not so much about food' or 'the not eating part really isn't that hard'.

Each year I try to focus on something during Ramadan.  One or two things that I want to improve or at least be more aware of.  In past years, this has been mostly mental.  This year my focus is mostly physical; my focus is food.  So much of what the things I listen to are about how to balance deen and dunya.  Food is both.

I tell people every year that Ramadan is not really about food, but this year it's a big part of it for me.

I waste a lot of food.  I want to waste less.  Every meal that I don't finish my food, I waste it.  The wastefulness is pervasive and affects so many aspects of life.  In me, wastefulness breeds an undeserved attitude of entitlement and privilege.  I want every time I eat to be a reminder that I have so much.  Rather, I have just the right amount; the amount I am supposed to have.  No more.  No less.  It's up to me to take the right amount.

Really, I'm trying to be mindful of food.  This hopefully translates into being mindful about other things.  Be mindful year round Taher.

I believe that I'll get what is coming to me.  No more, no less.  It's up to me to be happy with whatever that is.  Taher, let every time you eat be a reminder.

17th Shehrullah il Moazzam 1435; Karachi

Indeed time is an entity which continues without halt. Try we may but we couldn’t hold time for any reason. To halt it and treasure it for a lifetime is what every momin of Karachi wished today. But, alas! We surrendered and let our dear Maula TUS leave us for Mumbai today. Today the 17th of Shehrullah il Moazzam, Maula Aali Qadr TUS bid adieu to the momineen of Karachi after a stay of 7 days in Karachi-Pakistan. From the young to the old every momin from the nook and cranny of the country was gathered today at the Yousufi Masjid to catch a one last glimpse of their 53rd Dai ul Mutlaq who is the representative of Imam uz Zaman in the world.

The Fajr namaz was as per the ritual offered at the Adam Masjid , while zohr and asr was prayed in the Tahiri Masjid. Yousufi Mohallah got the fortune of the farewell of Maula TUS along with the magrib and isha namaz. The sullenness in the environment was evident for every heart was heavy with the farewell that was set ahead. Nevertheless taking pride in the fortune of our fates; we with much contentment and peace let our dear father leave us for Mumbai today.

May Maula TUS visit Karachi and bless us time and again, and may He stay in health in the cool shade of Raudhat Tahera till the very last day.

Ameen!
Shukran Maula!

16th Shehrullah il Moazzam 1435; Karachi

We started with anticipation; and continued with bliss and contentment of the unlimited blessings showered on us each day. It was just when we thought our days of Eid were about to end, we were given a surprise which was the most pleasant one ever fathomed by the momineen of Karachi. Yes, Maula TUS postponed His plan of departure to Mumbai, yes Maula TUS plans to continue to stay with the momineen of Karachi some more, and yes Maula plans to bless each one of us till our vessels can take no more. Not that we are already over flowing with the hasanaats of Maula TUS, but indeed we all crave for more, reel for more and beg for more…
image

Today the 17mi raat and 16th day of the month of Shehrullah il Moazzam was marked with the memories of Burhanuddin Maula TUS, so along with the gloom the 17mi raat, the night become a night of celebration for the momineen of Karachi. The day started with the Fajr namaz at Adam Mohallah with thousands of people lined up for deedar and prayers in the early hours of the morning.

The students of MSB-Institute Karachi and Al-Jamea tus Saifiya got the sharaf of deedar at the Burhani Mahal along with a colourful display of cards and various projects. The team of nazafat also got the same blessing of Maula TUS today after Fajr namaz at the Burhani Mahal. The zohar and asar was held at the Hasani Masjid, Clifton especially for the Hassani and Hussaini Mohallah momineen.

Hassani Mohallah preparation

The 17mi raat washek was prayed at the grand and festively decorated Taheri Masjid, Saddar. The masjid along with sehan and jamaat khana, stretching to the roads in the vicinity; were packed with momineen wishful for deedar and namaz with Maula TUS.
With pearls of dua, each momin returned wealthy and content with the countless blessings rewarded by our Maula TUS today in the majestical night of Shehrullah il Moazzam.

Indeed heaven is where our Maula TUS resides, May the citizens of Karachi enjoy the bounties of the haqiqi heaven time and again and May Allah bless our Maula TUS a life of utmost health to fulfil our vessels with countless barakaaats till the judgement day.
