When i was born, the first word which i heard that was ALLAH. The feeling of having someone who is not present physically but spiritually connected to me, has captivated all my thoughts, actions, interactions. When i was a kid, i saw my mother performing Namaz, The curiosity inside me forced me to ask her, what is she doing? and she took my hands and curved them like a well(Koonwa) [Dua k liye mery hath bandhna] and started reciting something that i was not aware. Gradually it became my habit to sit with her on her Jaye’Namaz at every Isha’s namaz time. Ama closed her eyes and start talking to somebody that i could not see and listen because the voice of Ama was very low and usually in our community we know that voice as (Dil ma parhna). That time i thought may be Ama can see because Ama is elder and i can’t see because I am small. I really liked that whole conversation of Ama and tried how to do my own. I still love the moment when Ama recites something with the movement of her head. I remember my Aba’s Dua (YA ALLAH paisy dy dy.) and I thought when my Aba will get up in morning then he’ll take money (paisy) behind his pillow. I started to do that pray before sleep but disappointed In the morning when I found nothing behind pillow. Then I learned from my Ama that ALLAH is one and everywhere, ALLAH is the Almighty, Creator and Sustainer of the universe, who is similar to nothing and nothing is comparable to Him. None of our prayers go unanswered. Some times It may be answered in the way which we want and some time the way ALLAH wants it to be.Masha-ALLAH my mum is very close to Deen she doesn’t miss her Namaz. I don’t remember exactly what I asked for when I was 6 but yes I always asked ALLAH for something good for me. May be ice cream, rain, happiness, Paisay new bat ball etc.
With time I realized the importance of praying and asking something from ALLAH Almighty. I was taught that when you need something, you shouldn’t ask anyone apart from ALLAH and HE shall grant your wish immediately. I was simply amazed by the power and divine strength of that someone whom I just contacted because it was mandatory for me. In life, there comes a time when we recognize that when all the relations ends and we found our self alone, there will be no Ama Abu no brothers and sisters no friends, then we come to know! there is no land no sky, even we couldn’t throw a stone in west and couldn’t move our hand to pick a flower, and we can’t do anything without the permission of ALLAH, then we know the value of our self, At that time we realized, only ALLAH almighty who is with us.
We should present our prayers in front of ALLAH so strong who resides in everyone’s heart. ALLAH is the one who knows every single thing about me and you and ALLAH has the power to turn mine and your world upside down. Most of the times our prayers already been answered by ALLAH without even telling HIM. And you know how I realized all of it? By looking back at my life when I was a child and evaluating the blessings that had been granted by ALLAH to make my life better and worth living.
We should pray with the faith in it to be answered. Believe me, none of our prayers go unanswered. Some times It may be answered in the way which we want and some time the way ALLAH wants it to be. ALLAH is the one who knows you and me more than you know your own self and me know my own self.
I belong to the nation which is very much cricket’s obsessed. Almost People from all age groups would talk nothing but cricket whenever Pakistan appears in any of the national or international tournaments semi finals or finals. I had always been a fan of cricket since my childhood just because as a Pakistani cricket is in my blood and when the Pakistan’s match starts my blood’s color become green. Once I cut my finger during the match and I surprised to see the blood of my body which was the combination of both green and red.
When the match starts I could imitate the cricket commentators and sound like a cricket expert on the field. I like to do the background running commentary with my so called expert opinion and predictions for the players, which would certainly make no sense at all. But when the situation becomes out of control then I don’t say even a single word as being a true supporter of my green team, Usually I start recites Darood Shareef and pray to ALLAH please (bus aaj ka match jeetwa du) bless us with the victory.
Yesterday Pakistan lost semi final from our best buddies Srilankans, Felt really very bad at that time even I abused in front of my boss. Because I wanted to see the Green team as victorious. In all matches of T20 world cup when Pakistan had won his game then I shouted Dhuz Dhuz Dhuz and tweet it. I didn’t see who is around me! girls, my collogues, my boss, a high class etc. I didn’t think what they will say about me, may be some says like this “how ridiculous he is, Manner less etc.” but I don’t care yar because we all know the feelings when we won a big match.
I didn’t forget Thursday 31 March 2011 the semi final of Pak India. I watched that match in my office Red signal with my collogues, we were sure at that time Pak will win this game definitely because Lala took the team from very down to up and he is the one who will never sale his dignity, But at end Lala didn’t sold his identity, Rehman Malik “Government” succeed to sold out Lala’s team, Do you guys think that sold deal was the only deal of green team? I think that was the deal of green team as well as our Paksarzameen. They sold us in dollars and build their home’s walls. Lakh Laanat.
Now come to the point, the big day and big game, again Thursday, world cup and semi final this time not India we faced Srilanka and they beat us after a very crucial game. Many voices around me like pakistan lost the match because of two Lalas Afridi and Umer Gul. Oh come-on yr how can you guys forgot that they were best at their time, why we forgot so quickly that one will win and one will loss but why every time we want victory? Did they promised us that we Pakistani team will bring world cup? Izzat raas nae ha hamain simple.
Just remember Umer Gull is the only one who takes us into semifinal of this world cup. Lets talk about Lala, He was the only man who made fastest century in ODI and 2nd fastest 50 runs. Lala was the man who gave break throw in bowling and enters the team Pakistan in the match. A player who rewarded us by most sixes in ODI, most man of the matches, won most of the matches for Pakistan. He is the man who is the fastest spinner in the cricket history. A leading wicket taker in T20 is my Lala. Because of Lala we played almost all semi finals of T20 world cup except this world cup. Many things which I want to share but I will not because (lakeer ky fakeer ha hum log) and we don’t want to understand.
The thing is that I’m not an ‘Afridite‘ but I strongly believe in respecting players. He isn’t in the best of his forms, and we lot expect too much, this is the time when he need our prayers and support and we are busy to criticize him at extreme level. Lannat hai yar.
We love this sport like anything else around us. I treat my players like family members who are cursed equally when they don’t perform well and are praised according to the number of runs they score or the number of wickets they take. I want to design a t-shirts and write on the back of that Lala I still Love you yr.
I think he should take some rest and just need to think that whether whats wrong with him, he can bat again in future or this is the end time of his career. and all haters please its his life and you people don’t deserve to say something about him. Let him do what he want, and those mouth better stay shut who are speaking bad about our cricket team and Lala, You dont deserve to be a part of celebration if you can’t support in times of loss. I wish we could keep the spirit alive in the hearts of our cricket loving nation for all the good things that are yet to come.
