So who do you think is going to win the match and why?
Whose balling and batting line is the strongest?
Who do you want to win or lose?
I remember this poem since I was a kid, in my early teenage. A beautiful poem, believe me, I never knew the feelings it’s trying to convey at that time even!
Here you go with this wonderful poem, kya phir yeh zamana jeet gaya:
Wo Raatain Mousam-e-sarma Ki
Wo Baatain Mousam-e-sarma Ki
Wo Terey Saath He Sub Kuch Tha
Wo Serma Bhi Ab Beet Gaya
Wo Dur Dur K Jub Miltey They
Wo Mil Mil K Jub Durety They
Wo Milney Ki Kasmain Kha Kha Ker
Hum Jeetey They Hum Mertey They
Ab Yaad Dilaaye Koun Tumhain
Ye Saal Bhi Aakhar Beet Gaya
Naa Tum Aye Na Koi Khut Likha
Pora Kia Na Waada Koi
Aur Apna Bhi Koi Dosh Nuhi
Ye Baazi Bhi Jug Jeet Gaya
Wo Serd Huwaain Ab Bhi Hain
Rangeen Fizaain Ab Bhi Hain
Wo Bheegey Bheegey Paani Ki
Pur Shore Sadain Ab Bhi Hain
Main Ab Bhi Udher Ko Jata Hoon
Aur Dil Apna Sulgaata Hoon
Jub Tum Nuhi Hotey Saath Merey
Hotey Hain Khaali Haath Merey
Pur Shore Sadain Poocheti Hain
Wo Serd Huwain Poocheti Hain
Wo Kahan Gaya Saathi Tera????
Kia Phir Ye Zamana Jeet Gaya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh no no! it’s not an invitation :p was just an info being provided for free! 🙂
Well you all know what’s going to be special about it! ofcourse alot for him and my family in general, but with me . . well! guess what, it’s my turn next 😉

I hope this event goes well though!
A beautiful poem by Dr Iqbal.
Wonderful stanzas, specially the last one, . . .
Masjid to bana di shab bhar mai imaan ki hararat walon ne Mun apna purana papi ha i, berson mai namazi ban na saka
Kia khoob Ameer-e-faisal ko sunwasi ne pegham diya Tu naam-o-nasab ka hijazi hai ,per dil ka hijazi ban na saka
Ter aankhein to ho jatin hain,per kia lazzat us ronay mai Jab khoon-e-jigar ki aamezish se ashk piyazi ban na saka
Iqbal bara updeshak hai mun baaton mai moh leta hai Guftaar ka ye ghazi to bana , kirdaar ka ghazi ban na saka
Iqbal day, 9th of November, celebrated, just like every it’s every year.
One day Iqbal’s friend Faqeer Najm-ud-din met Allama Iqbal. He saw that Iqbal is holding a letter in his hand, which he reads again and again, and every time he read it, he cry… Faqeer Najmuddin asked him the reason why he was crying, Iqbal said, a Cambridge university Professor has asked me for the permission to translate my book into his language. Faqeer Najmuddin was surprised and asked that why are you crying over it? Isn’t it something to be proud of? Iqbal wiped off his tears and said what makes me cry is that, the nation who I wrote all this for, they don’t even bother to read it, let alone understanding it, where as non-Muslims are trying to translate my poetry and give it to their nation. Faqeer Najmuddin eyes also got tears after listening to Iqbal’s answer.
How did we celebrate Iqbal day? some universities had holiday and some didn’t. Most of the people spent their day watching tv or movies at their homes, or roaming around with their friends or family . . .Have we ever read Iqba’s message?
One strange misconception is, that Iqbal gave the idea of partition of the subcontinent, which he definitely didn’t. Partition was not even an issue of discussion until 1940’s even. In 1946, congress and muslim league started a combined government even, which failed because leaders of both the parties were not ready to comprise with other one.
However, Iqbal gave the dream of Muslim unity and rise of every Muslim as the true Caliph of Allah . . . have we pondered over it? have we tried to remember that part of his dream?
Some people say if Iqbal and Muhammad Ali Jinnah are reborn today, Pakistan would be a different place . . .
I think, if they are born again today, they will die again due to shock after seeing the situation of Pakistan . . . but unfortunately it don’t even make us concerned.
May Allah give us the ability to clean our own house . . .and ourselves . . . instead of waiting like a disabled person on a hospital bed, waiting for someone to do everything for them . . .
I received an sms today on my cell phone having some info about curing dengue fever through apple and lemon!
Upon checking on google, I wasn’t able to find any info about apple and lemon and if they help in any type of platelet activity or to cover up thrombocytopenia.
I could only find another person who was asking the same question that he got an sms saying this to him, and guess what, he was from my country Pakistan too!
Well maybe this is helpful cure or maybe just a myth! ?
Here is the text from the sms (it’s in urdu – translation after the original text)
Tabbeb M. Shafiq ne apni tehqeq se prove kiya hai k Apple juice mai Lemon k few drops mila kar Dingi Virus k paticent ko pilaya jaye tu us se Pletllates ki tadad mai bohat ziyada ezafa ho jata hai.
Ye Dingi Virus ka mouassar or azmuda elaj hai.
Plz jahan tak ho sake is msg ko sadqa-e-jariya krain
Doctor M. Shafiq has proved through his research that Apple juice with few drops of lemon in it, if administered to Dengue fever patient, will improve his platelet count markedly.
This is an effective and tested treatment of Dengue virus fever.
Please spread this message as much as you can
I am not sure if this is really some researched stuff or just a random message circulating! anyone having info on it is requested to share please!
God made the world heaven, man made it hell…. the only one to blame is the human being, ruining it’s own paradise . . . ?
How many of you are programmers? or have ever coded a software or script? anyway, let me explain something.
A company makes a game.. a wonderful one, all beautiful graphics and stuff. .. . and in the game, there is a powerful character (or set’s of character) who keep on destroying the game stuff, like system in it and damaging others etc. And in the end, the game creator, publishes a statement, saying, the character was the culprit, it destroyed the game.. .hell yeah! he is! it’s him to be blamed.
Lets see another example, I have two cars in my hand, remote control cars, and i race them, both of them in my hands, and i let one of them win, and one lose, and in the end, i declare, that the one that loses, I’ll throw it in the fire . . .. yeah! it deserves it man! it didn’t follow the right path and lost! right?
Science is working alot on artificial intelligence, creating systems to solve out various issues around . . . have God placed the system in the world on auto pilot? some prayers that pass the system get approved and rest are pending in the que? What is God waiting for ? busy in some important stuff? or just playing?
God is great, no doubt about it, all praise to Him, and I submit myself to him, but, did He ever felt pain? ever felt hopeless? ever cried? ever felt speechless and desperate ? ever . . .. !
Sorry Allah…. when i text you, my message never gets delivered, when I call , it says the number I have dialed is not available, when i Pray, it goes in que (for my benefit! right!) . . . I’m tired, have you ever felt tired and sick ? and hopeless?
God, if world fails, YOUR CREATION fails . . . and it’s not the creation which fails. . .
Just wondering how talented Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was! Now just take an example of this ghazal! He took 10 minutes to say only these few lines! that’s what a real ustaad is! 😀 You can hear this awsome ghazal at the end of this post too.
Mai kahin bhi jaon ae jaan, mera intezaar krna
meray baad phir kisi se, kbhi tum na pyar krna
mera naam jin labon pe, kbhi kheelta tha barson
meri jaan mai wohi hon, mera aitebaar krna
tu nigar-e-zindagi tha, tu bahaa-e-zindagi tha
mughay yaad hai abhi tak, tera beqaraar krna
tu bazaat-e-khud nasha hai, tu misaal-e-maikada hai
tera khud se moo chupana, mughay sharmsaar krna
tu agr bhatak bhi jay, teray paas hai woh rasta
jisay toor ne dekhaya, wohi ikhtiar krna
Just had an impulse of earthquake in Islamabad and Rawalpindi, Pakistan today on 18th september, 2010 at almost 12:20 am Pakistan Standard Time supposed intensity of 6.3 (personal opinion).
The quake was not very high intensity in my perception, but according to my mother and a friend who felt it to be too high. I was talking to my friend on msn about some posts and also making post on my other blog about some facebook ip restricted issue.
The earthquake lasted for almost 30 seconds to 1 minute but with the wave intensity decreasing gradually.
I wonder what does our creator want to tell and warn us about by giving such a lovely merciful shower today, and then a warning sign just after it.
I hope there is no damage in any other city and region in Pakistan which just reflected mild impulse here in Islamabad and Rawalpindi!
May Allah have mercy on us!
Geo news reported that the jolts and tremors of the earthquake were felt in Islamabad, Lahore, Multan, Nowshera, Gilgit, Swat, Muzzafarabad, Peshawar, North Waziristan, Malakand Agency and many more.
Got sms from my cousin, asking what is meant by Manam mehv-e khiyaal-e-oo Nami danam Kuja raftam.
Well it was very interesting finding the meaning of this stanza from the kalam of maulana roomi, but finally got it! without the help of any persian / farsi speaking friend (except for my friend Google :))
In short, the stanza means: I am busy in thoughts of you – don’t know where did I got lost!
Meaning, I got lost somewhere while i was busy in thoughts of you!
For those who want to know how did i got this translation, i went to the roman to urdu / persian writer and then after generating text from it, i went to google translator for perisan to english and got my translation 🙂
