What’s your greatest fear?

No matter how strong we pretend to be, we all have some fears in our life. Some people are afraid of heights (acrophobia), others are afraid of insects (entomophobia). Some of us are afraid of Justin Bieber’s fans and some of us are afraid of being the audience in Amir Liaquit’s show (this fear is known as aam-khayega-aam phobia). Some of us have isolophobia & some of us have anthropophobia. Some of the fears are controllable, others are difficult to control. Everything is a ‘fear’ if it makes one feel appalling, footling or weak. Of all the fears that I have, losing people I love has to be my greatest fear. My family, friends, relatives, everyone in my life occupy a special place in my heart. Yes, here I am confessing my biggest fear… that is losing my loved ones.

This fear, at times, doesn’t let me sleep. My little world which is made up of my family and my true friends is beautiful, Masha’Allah. I can’t imagine my world getting damaged. I don’t know if this is my fear or weakness or um, I don’t know.

Fear surrounds us in different forms. We all have different fears but the purpose of all the fears is same: To make us feel appalling, terrible and small.

Having said this all, we don’t need to feed our fears. Even though this is my greatest fear but I believe, that even if people leave; our connection with them doesn’t end.

“If you’re irritated by every rub, how will you become polished?” -Rumi

 

There is something that eliminates fear and that is hope, it tells us that we can reunite in the next world with those people who left us, and those people who will leave us. A world that will be better than this temporary wicked world.

Being scared all the time gives you nothing but wrinkles..

So, spend time with your family and true friends because it is more important and valuable than your Facebook display, ranting tweet and annoying selfie. Because life is hard (if lived with regrets). So…images

Pakistan’s Morning shows

Morning shows? Welcome to the world of marriages, extreme dementia, and how to get rid of the spirits. We all have once or twice, unfortunately, stumbled upon these so-much-informative “morning shows” and to be very honest, I have always changed the channel after a few minutes with an extreme vexation. If you have ever watched these morning shows for more than two hours then I salute your equanimity level. What is the criteria for a morning show female host? Is it somebody who is obsessed with marriages? Is it somebody who laughs like a rhinoceros? Is it somebody who blabbers stuff she can’t decipher herself? Or is the criteria for selecting a female host is somebody who keeps on flaunting designer wear dresses. These morning show’s hosts clearly make this statement invalid that “Everyone was made for some purpose” because, I think, their existence is as useless as Shahrukh Lodhi’s existence. Oh wait; he is also a host, my bad. We are all aware of what happens in morning shows. I thought morning show’s hosts were meant to educate people and between the lines of sanity entertain people too. In the morning, when the housewives find time from their household chores after sending their husbands and children at work and school respectively, what they get to see is marriage of already married people. Same faces, low class humour, and flaunting designer made dresses is the theme of these shows. These morning shows perfectly explain that just for the sake of ratings and money how low one can get. Telling people, how to get rid of the spirits and making your show look like a haunted house doesn’t make anyone scared but does make a lot of us to ponder that these morning show’s hosts need to be put in the cages in zoo and those animals should be given their place for they might entertain better than them. I was once watching a morning show in which a disabled girl and poor guy’s marriage was being displayed and they kept on telling that how much money they spent on their marriage and how poor they are. Bragging about a good deed is so cool, right? Telling the whole world that how less privileged they are and then doing their marriage? WOW. Playing Bollywood songs in the background, dancing like crazy on these morning marriages is indeed a sad spectacle that one gets to see daily in the morning. Also, they have the same so called high profile guests in their shows that I see have no other job than to come in these morning show and waste the time of people. Sometimes, I think I am watching the same show. I would suggest these morning show’s directors or writers to change their morning show’s name to “MARRIAGE”. I think they are suffering from TOO-MUCH-OBSESSED-WITH-MARRIAGE disorder (I am pretty sure, this is a disorder) Dear ladies who don’t have anything to do than to watch these morning shows, don’t worry if you missed one episode, I am sure it would be the same show with the same theme, and the same old faces.

Now, that I have mentioned so much about these shows, I need to gargle my mouth with sulphuric acid because an extremely nauseating taste is coming in my mouth.

Allama Iqbal, the best poet.

Aieessh

It won’t be a hyperbole or overstatement if I call Allama Iqbal the best poet in this world. I know, everyone has their own opinion and I can’t generalize it but for me he is the best poet. If you have a good taste in poetry then you will agree with me and If you’re a MUSLIM then, I see, no reason, that you can deny the fact that his poetry is just spectacular. His poetry wasn’t just words which were jotted down, his poetry had deep meaning behind it, that many of us cannot decipher.

Iqbal is the best articulated Muslim response to Modernity that the Islamic world has produced in the 20th century. His response has three dimensions:

A creative engagement with the conceptual paradigm of modernism at a sophisticated philosophical level through his prose writings, mainly hisThe Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam which present his…
