The best form of LOVE

Sharing a very raw piece of prose I wrote sometime back. I really don’t know whether it even qualify to be called a prose or not.

We love ourselves,
We love our family,
We love our friends,
We love our job,
We love everything that this world offers…

What is LOVE?

A feeling of submission,
A feeling of need,
A feeling of care,
A feeling that forces us to prioritize someone else’s happiness over ours.

And we do that willingly.
We are ready to give up our everything for our ‘loves’,
We can’t afford them leaving us.
The mere thought of it disturbs us, gives us goosebumps.
We become restless, uneasy, uncomfortable!

We do everything within our limit and reach
to make our ‘loves’ happy,
to make them stay with us,
We just can’t let them go!

And if our ‘loves’ leave us,
We feel hurt,
We feel empty,
We feel anxious.

Can you relate?
Every one of us has someone/something we ‘love’  like that. No?

And there’s nothing wrong in ‘loving’ people and things that matter to us.
But have you ever thought,

Do I love ALLAH- the creator of the universe the way he is supposed to be loved?

Do I feel content when I do things that Allah wants?
Do I make effort to make myself look good in front of Allah?
Do I submit myself completely to Allah’s will?

Things become simple when we do that,
Decisions become easier.
Our other ‘loves’ and relationships become better.

And you know what the best part is?
ALLAH LOVES US
More than we can imagine
and doesn’t want us to leave him ever ❤

May Allah guide us towards him
May we feel fulfilled in his complete submission
May we be satisfied in Allah’s will.

How Mothers should behave with fellow Mothers? – Mother’s Day 2020 Special

‘Jab khud Maa banogi to pata chaley ga!!’-

Ammi would say this quite often and we used to laugh it off when we were younger.

I remember once we went to Murree, we (siblings) tried to take a sneak peek down a high winding road which wasn’t secured by a railing. Ammi was terrified and even though Abbu was with us, she was constantly refraining us from moving ahead while holding hands of 2 of the youngest ones among us. The whole situation looked hilarious to us that time and we made fun of it.

You stay at home – You don’t do anything!

Generally, I don’t get to hear negative statements about myself. Naaa, It’s not because I am so good that people don’t get a chance to pass their precious comments about me – Nope, not at all! lol. The reason is that I totally avoid such toxic, judgmental, I-know-it-all kinda peeps… trust me this is the best way to dodge away those pessimistic statements and lead a happy care-free life.

However, there are days when you are bound to get scrutinized by people from such shitty mentality clan and you Continue reading “You stay at home – You don’t do anything!”

Home to School – Made Easy!

In the post when I talked about ‘Motherhood – A Mario Bros Game‘ (which was ages ago, I know), I was in search of a reliable and well-reputed school for E back in Dubai. Check out the article and find out mixed feelings I had about E being starting the school shortly. That time we did not have the slightest clue that we’ll be moving to New Zealand very soon even before E turns the age (3.7yo) to start schooling in the UAE.

Fast forward to NZ; Continue reading “Home to School – Made Easy!”
