Abdullah Ar-razi'i - Ali Asghar

When all of the companions, friends and male family members but one (Imam Zain al Abideeen) were martyred, the camp of Imam hussain parched and the young children crying of thirst, Imam hussain made a call of "hal min nasirin yansuruna, hal min mugheeso yugheesuna" Is there a supporter who'd support us? Is there a helper who'd help us? A cry from the tent of Bibi Rabab leads Imam hussain to her tent. She says Abdullah Al razi Ali Asghar has fallen from the bed with your call. Imam Hussain looks at him; he is parched and weak, having gone so much time without water.

Imam hussain takes Ali Asghar covered under his mantle against the scorching sun. He takes Ali Asghar to the battle ground and asks the enemy forces whatever quarrel they may have with Imam Hussain, what issue did they have with the 6 months old Ali Asghar? At least give him some water. Imam Hussain even lays Ali Asghar on the ground saying if you think that I may drink on his pretext. No one from the Yazeed's army moves. 

Imam Hussain picks Ali Asghar, uncovers him, and raises him on his hands. Ali Asghar a young baby he is, tries to wet his lips with his tongue but his tongue is also dried up. This act of Asghar is an arrow of sort shot towards the Yazeedi army - a little disturbance starts in the army.

Umar Saad hurriedly asks Hurmula, a supposedly brave soldier, to cut Hussain's word (which is just Asghar's dried up tongue that which is starting to move Yazeed's army). 

Hurmula takes a three headed arrow and aims at the neck of Ali Asghar - just 6 month's old, Asghar convulses in Imam Hussain's hands and takes his last breath. He has departed the life of this world and has moved to the heaven where he certainly would complain to his grandfather Rasool Allah about those Muslims, who supposedly were followers of his religion, those who took his blameless life.

The few drops of blood spill from his neck in Imam Hussain's hands. He looks at the sky then looks at the ground but seeing neither willing to take the blood, Imam Hussain rubs his hands on his own face and returns to the camp, just to return to the battle ground to give his own life for the preservation of the religion of Islam. 

A simple battle was fought in the war, which was apparently subdued by the Yazeedi forces, but the force of the blow Ali Asghar made was much stronger, it is felt still now after more than thirteen hundreds years and would always keep the Yazeedi forces at bay.

بر بحر "گلس ہنس دیئے نقاب الٹ دی بہار نے"

ماہِ صیام آنکھ کھولی ہے بہار نے
مولا کو جانشین دیا کردگار نے

فاطمہ ہیں خوش علی مسکرا رہے
"گل ہنس دیئے نقاب الٹ دی بہار نے"

ہیں عظمتِ نبی شبیہِ رسول بھی
تحفہ دیا ہے سیدہ پروردگار نے

کیا ہے بارگاہ میں سرخم دست بند
حکمت اور حلم اور کردار نے
صفین کی جنگ میں لپکنے پہ حسن کے
روکا بنسبتِ رسول کرار نے

پیشِ نظر تحفظِ دینِ رسول تھا
قلم کی پیروی جو کی تلوار نے

نامِ علی جو کیا لیا ڈوبتے نے
مشکل سے ہاتھ مارے پھر منجدھار نے
امن میں جو کہ ضبطِ حسن ہو گیا رواں
ضبط کیا جنگ میں علمدار نے
اس پہ ہو معافی سفرؔ کے قلم کی
کی ہے بڑی جرات اس خاکسار نے

نئی ٹیکسی

ابا کا ایک دوست ہے، مقصود۔ ہماری ہی گلی میں ہی رہتا ہے-  اسکے پاس ایک پرانی سوزوکی ٹیکسی ہے ۔ ابا ویسے تو  بس میں آتا جاتا ہے مگر جب کبھی اماں یا ہم کو کہیں لے کے جانا ہو تو مقصود کو ہی کہتا ہے کہ لے چل۔ چونکہ مقصود ابا کا دوست بھی ہے اور اسکے ساتھ تاش بھی کھیلتا ہے، اس لیئے ابا کو کرایہ میں کچھ رعایت دے دیتا ہے۔
مجھے مقصود بالکل بھی اچھا نہیں لگتا، گھور گھور کر دیکھتا رہتا ہے، جب ابا سامنے نہ ہو تو کہتا ہے مجھ سے شادی کرے گا، ویسے تو ابا اس معاملے میں کافی ٹھیک ہے مگر مجھے ڈر ہے کہ کہیں مقصود ابا کو پٹا ہی نہ لے۔ 
 ایک دفعہ میں اسکول سے گھر آرہی تھی کہ دو اوباش لڑکوں نے مجھے دیکھ کر پہلے تو آوازے کسنا شروع کیئے مگر پھر میرا پیچھا شروع کردیا ۔ میں تیز تیز قدموں سے جلدی گھر آجانے کی دعا کرتی تقریبا بھاگنا شروع ہوگئی کہ مجھے مقصود   کی ٹیکسی نظر آگئی۔ وہ سڑک کے کنارے ٹیکسی کھڑی کرکے سواری مل جانے کا انتظار کررہا تھا۔ میں نے آو دیکھا نہ تاو اور جلدی سے دروازہ کھول کر اسکی ٹیکسی میں بیٹھ گئی اور مقصود سے کہا کہ دو لڑکے میرا پیچھا کررہے ہیں تو مجھے گھرپر اتاردو۔ اس نے مجھے غور سے دیکھا پ…

Putting Ideas in the public

I have a gift (or a curse); I can think on many different fronts at the same time, often too many.

One of those fronts is technical / business ideas. There is a ever growing list of ideas that come to my mind. And I want to make use of each of those.

However realizing that I have been not so productive with these ideas. I spend too much time in generating and enhancing these Ideas and contemplating on them and do not focus enough to get through with them to convert them into value. And I know Ideas do not have any value unless they get used.

Lately I have been thinking about this and I thought instead of keeping the ideas to myself in hope that I will get time and focus to implement them why don't I put those Ideas on the web to the public.

This got me thinking....

However, some part of me does not want to let go of the ideas, I see business potentials in many of the these ideas and being a normal person, I wish I could get some benefit out of it. However, I know that stinginess …
