Rai-wind’s of Change

Since the three day “Tablighi Ijtama” has started from today, its not recommended to go out in the rush hour specially on the ‘neher-o-neher’ route. The whole canal road is full of traffic jams from Jalo to Thokar and I got a taste of it while going towards the University Campus today.

The Raiwind Tableeghi Ijtama is known to change a lot of people overnight. Junaid Jamshaid and Saeed Anwar are some well known examples. I still havent had my share of changes so far but I guess i’ll pay a visit one of these years. Whats quite intersting about the tableeghi ppl is their call for dars after namaz which is almost a standard all over Pakistan. I wonder if they use the same lines outside Pakistan.

Meri… apki.. bulkay poori duniya ki kamyabi Allah ta`alla nay apnay deen main rakhi hay. Yeh deen hamari zindgai main kis terha aye ga, is kay liyay shadeed mehnat ki zaroorat hay. Baqiya namaz kay baad issi mehnat kay baray main kuch behas ho gi. Tamaam hazrat tashreef rakhain, Inshallah bohat faida ho ga

(heres an almost word to word translation.. couldnt find an english equivalent for “deen”)

Mine… Your…infact the whole world’s success has been placed in His religion by Allah. How this religion will enter in our lives, it requires a lot of effort. After the remaining prayers, we’ll have a discussion about this same effort. Everyone please stay back, (God willing) it will be very beneficial.

    I hope that at the end of the Ijtema they will pray for those poor Christians as well whose prayer places were gutted down by a mob recently in Punjab :(

    yes they do… i live in karachi & recently one of my collegues has returned from raiwind.. it was amazing to know how they have incorporated quran and sunnah in their lives.. my collegue was telling me that a person in the ijtima asked how should we treat/take/behave with americans, after seeing what they have and are doing to muslims all over the world… the maulana sahib replied that we should act patiently and pray in their right that Allah show them the righteous path…
    my friend SHEEPOO, islam is the religion of love, not hatred… our Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) even showered love on His enemies.. it is human nature these days that we try to generalize things.. let me make it very clear to u that i m NOT saying that all maulvis r good..
