It is November again, just yesterday I was watching the small flying companions dancing twittering pecking at the grains of rice, a feast for them, in the rain, ah! water and food together , all a blessing from the Almighty who fulfills his promises in His own ways,makes the distances vanish or creates some between others for reasons only He knows, definitely for the better…when I looked at the birds I saw and felt contentment joy and closeness,,,all fly together , wake up early, pray together hidden in the foliage, spend the day in places unknown and unseen, and by evening they are back on the trees…and often kept me company on the terrace as I would sit and watch while I had a hot cup of tea…this was a usual activity in days when kids were gone and Allah knew …میں جانتی نہین ہوں ک تنہائی کیا ہے ہر وقت ہر لمحہ خدا میرے ساتھ ہہے. I am never conscious of loneliness as each moment each time God is with me and I am with Him
a and then came this beautiful cat from nowhere, she just started coming and sitting outside the door, again on the terrace.Not showing ever the desire to come inside. She sat on the mat slept on it , sometimes she would sit in the corner against the small pillars, I felt she came for company and to be a guard…
for many years cats kept watch and gave us company…and I felt the Presence of the Creator, when I was unwell and could not go out on the terrace the cat would come and sit in the porch downstairs…she knew I was not present in the lounge upstairs…we left that house and left that city…but birds and animals followed…
this dog was found sleeping outside my bedroom window one fine morning and so nature had sent a pet once again, this was a different place and house . We stayed in it for a year and a half…
I wonder at these animal visitations, perhaps they come to share their pains troubles and illnesses,but they cannot speak…yet one can understand and feel the life in them… hunger is the basic instinct and then it is a need too for food
‘He is hungry’ a voice seemed to say and I watched for long as he held the piece of ‘roti’ in both his paws and slowly ate it bit by bit.
That night a tapping sound woke me..well? how is life here?
so good so peaceful Allahji has blessed us in many ways with company and peace and I think a duty is evident and I must remain conscious
‘yes’ you are here for a purpose and if you are able to identify that you are among the fortunate but fulfill you must with a good heart, I was observing this hungry creature last night, I saw him move slowly towards this house as if he was told to go there, and then you gave him food’ and…
I hope we are able to gather the good flowers and spend our time in making allah’s creatures happy…the leaves are falling and soon the trees will be bare and it will be colder …how these animals bear the weather ?
keep thinking keep doing whatever good is possible and there is hope and new buds will sprout and bloom again…and now..its time
prayer is better than sleep prayer is better than sleep’ …soon the birds too will twitter and pray
the sound of wings flapping touched the window pane as the call for prayer sounded again میں جو سر بسجدہ نہ ہو سکا نہ زمین سے ای کوئی سدا
نہ قرآن زبان کی سمجھ ابھی مجھے کیا ملیگا اس نماز میں
