آج فر کسی كے جانے کی خبر آئی
دِل کی دُنیا میں فر اداسی چھائی
رو رہے تھے جب ہم غیروں کو
کسی اپنے كے جانے کی تب خبر آئی
موت ہے یقینا یہ جانتا ہو میں بھی
یوں تیرے اک دم جانے کی بے یقینی ہے
وہ ملنا تجھ سے یوں آخری ہو گا
وہ مسکرا کر دیکھنا بھی
وہ آگے بڑھ کر دعاؤں دینا
وہ بے لوث کی محبت
بس یادوں میں سب کی یوں
قید ہو جاؤگے سوچا نا تھا

Aaj fir kisi ke jane ki khabar aayi
dil ki duniya mein fir udaasi chaayi
Ro rahe they jab hum ghairon ko
Kisi apne ke jane ki tab khabar ayi.
Maut hai yaqeenan ye janta hu mai bhi
Yun tere ek dum jane ki be yaqeeni hai.
Wo milna tujhse yun aakhri hoga
Wo muskurakar dekhna bhi
Wo aage badhkar duaaen dena
Wo belaus ki mohabbat !
Bas Yaadon mein sabki yun
kaid ho jaoge Socha na tha.
Seems like the death has declared a war on us, and the first ones to go are the good people. I see people dying in war,hunger and then we have these sudden deaths happening around shaking us to the roots and souls. Recently I lost an uncle of mine, my mother’s cousin and the whole family is still in complete shock , he suffered a massive silent heart attack and died in his sleep. He was not ill or suffering from any other health problem nor was he that old , basically there is no defined logic for death when and why it will choose you ! so nothing rules the logic except the Divine Decree that is what we believe in as muslims, when there is the time to go , you go. Everyone around you adapts to not having you around anymore and try hard to cling on to their memories to keep you there forever.
He was a great soul, a completely social human being, loving everyone around him , especially the kids of family, no matter which chain of hierarchy you fall in , He will connect with you and bond you instantly. His voice, his mannerism , his sense of humor , all created his charisma which we will miss forever now. A progressive muslim who was always encouraging the girls of the family to study further and be independent. In fact he used to come back to keep a check and even remind you “Never forget your goal in life, life is short , time is running and success is far” . One of the lines from his last message he sent to me in September.
May Allah accept our prayers and grant him in Jannah and give peace to his soul.
I wish Mamu I could have said this when you were alive, Never thought you would leave us so soon. You left us with a feeling of regret we couldn’t tell you how important you were for us and how much we loved you.
