Short Poem about Dadyal





Dadyal mujh main hai chahay main Dadyal main hoon ya nahin,



unn galiyon main dharaktay dil mere dil se jurray huay hain,


saath samundar paar ya phir saath hazaar samundar paar,


woh log mere apnay hi hain jaisay main unn ka apna hoon...


Kehtay hain woh ke mere passport ka rang alag hai,


kehta hoon main ke dil se nikalta hai jo khoon us ka rang to dekho,


apnay shaher ko maine dekha hai...


khamoshi main, shor main, baarishon main,


toofanon main, hastay huay rotay huay dekha hai.....


Poori zindagi to nahin lekin chand lamhay to guzaray hain....


Dadyal ki awaaz sun raha hoon main....


aisa lagta hai ke koi apna mujhe pukaar raha hai....


Yeh awaaz ek pooray shaher ki hai.....


Kisi ek insaan ki to nahin....


Shaher kehta hai ke har kisi ko apna maano...


Chahay ameer ho ya gareeb......


tum jaisa ho ya alag....


paraya ho ya apna.....


door ho ya kareeb ho...


kyun kho gaye hain log choti choti baaton main...


yeh zameen keh rahi hai ke mere liye jiyo....


mere liye marro nahin....


marr ke to mere neechay hi aana hai....


upar ho to achay kaamon main zorr lagatay raho...


Dadyal main koi chota bara naa ho...


tab jaa ke yeh Dadyal ban jayega...

Pakistan Censors Text Messages

Telenor (Mobile) Head Office - Islamabad, Pakistan.



Pakistan's mobile operators have been told to block text messages containing any of over 1,600 "obscene" terms banned by the country's telecoms authority.

The list, including words from "quickie" to "fairy" to "Jesus Christ", was distributed on November 14th 2011 with operators given seven days to comply, but has met with widespread derision and a threat of legal action.

"There are more than 1,600 words in the list including indecent language, expletives, swear words, slang etc, which have to be filtered," an official at a telecoms firm said.

"The filtering is not good for the system and may degrade the quality of network services -- plus it would be a great inconvenience to our subscribers if their SMS was not delivered due to the wrong choice of words," he said.

Other words and phrases on the list of 1,695 terms, issued in English and Urdu, include "athlete's foot", "idiot" and "damn", as well as "deeper", "four twenty", "go to hell", "harder" and "looser".

PTA officials were unavailable to comment on the ban, which did not appear to have been implemented on Sunday as messages containing the words were still transmitted.

The letter accompanying the list says networks must also submit monthly reports on implementation.

Campaign group Bytes for All said it would challenge the order in court, saying it violated rights to free speech and privacy.

"We are now witnessing a new ruthless wave of moral policing in the digital communication sphere of Pakistan imposed by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority," country coordinator Shahzad Ahmed told AFP.

"By developing extremely detailed lists of allegedly 'offensive' words and forcing telecom operators to filter them out to make our society moral and clean, PTA has not only made a mockery of itself but also of the entire country and its government," he added.

The move in the Muslim-majority country sparked derision from local Twitter users using the hashtag #PTAbannedlist.

"Maybe all Pakistanis should keep sending expletive-filled text msgs every 10 minutes and wait for the networks to collapse," tweeted user Shoaib Taimur. Another Twitter user, Fariha Akhtar, posted: "Damage to #ebanking?" after the word "deposit" was discovered on the banned list.

"The #PTABannedList is also an excellent opportunity for our street language and slang to evolve and grow by coming up with newer abuses," tweeted blogger Shahid Saeed.

"Seriously, why aren't we protesting this ban? Jokes apart, they've banned words that have no vulgar implications whatsoever," tweeted Sara Muzzamil.

Several Twitter users also questioned the inclusion of several terms they have never heard of.

The word 'Butt' has been banned and one of the mobile companies has an executive with the surname Butt, so he will have to put a ban on the use of his own name in text messages.

Goodbye Facebook - Article by a Muslim Woman

My high school friends told me about Facebook. Since all of them had an account, I decided to create one myself although I was very nonchalant about my account. I had never displayed my pictures on social sites and told myself that I would not display my pictures on Facebook. But then everybody I knew had their pictures on. So, I started uploading pictures, and before I knew it, I had a million pictures of mine there.

What happened next was that brothers I knew started adding me. I was reluctant in the beginning, but a voice inside me told me to grow up and that it was no big deal. The first comment I got was from a brother I studied with – “Nice picture, Maryam.” What did he mean by that? I asked myself. Was he being chummy? Honestly speaking, I felt so bad when he wrote that comment on my wall, but then a voice inside my heart told me not to overreact and to show some manners so I thanked him.

I don’t know what happened next, but I started following the dunya. The values I stood up for and walked with became obsolete to me. My compromises turned into huge sacrifices. I became so desensitized and immune to the haram that was happening. I forgot that there was a God out there watching me, and I forgot that I was supposed to emulate the best of mankind- RasulAllah salla Allahu ‘alayhi wasallam. Random people would message me asking me for friend requests; they said I was “pretty” and they wanted to be friends with me. I even got some proposals on Facebook- can you believe it! And there were lists of stalkers who kept sending me stupid messages and songs on YouTube through fake accounts in my inbox.

Later, when I had pulled back a bit from Facebook, I stopped interacting with a lot of brothers there because a verse from the Quran kept spinning in my head:

I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me. [51:56]

When I woke up from my stupor, I realized that I had become some other Maryam I never wanted to be. I had so many friends, but I was never happy because none of them reminded me of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. None of them ever told me that displaying my pictures like that or chatting with random people was wrong and against the sunnah. Shaytan loves spreading promiscuity and hates modesty, and somehow I had chosen to follow him instead of following Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.

Prophet Muhammed salla Allahu alayhi wasallam said:

Modesty is part of faith and faith is in paradise, but obscenity is part of hardness of heart and hardness of heart is in hell. (Ahmad, Tirmidhi)

I had faith, and I was a monotheist. But where was my hayaa, and where were my priorities? I had become a slave of my desires. Islam came to guide man, and here I was in the shackles of my own desires, other people, and the media. Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala, has said:

“Have you seen him who takes his own lust (vain desires) as his ilah (god)?” [45:23]

In light of this verse, Imam Al-Ghazali said:

“Those who follow their own passions do not conform to monotheism, because anyone who follows his own passions makes them the object of his worship. The monotheist is he who sees nothing but the One God and only turns his face to Him.”

I removed all my pictures and changed the privacy settings of my account, but I still felt that my soul was filthy. My heart was hard. Even the Quran failed to penetrate my heart and didn’t make me cry anymore. I had everything I wanted, but something inside me was dying. It was my Iman. My Iman was suffocating.

I realized that the only way to purify my nafs was to leave things that distracted me. True, Facebook had its advantages, but for me, it was like alcohol; its detriment was greater than its benefit. So I decided to give it up for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. For months I struggled with my decision. It was hard saying goodbye to everyone, but I told them that I would be available by email if they needed me, and I requested them to remove, crop, or blur my pictures from Facebook because a voice inside me said, Maryam your face is precious and only for your hubby to see. Yes, I struggled, and it was hard: I gave up so many things which I feared would not benefit me in the Hereafter. I am still in the process of purifying my heart and always will be inshaAllah because it’s a lifelong struggle. Sometimes, things we do seem good to us, but they slowly poison our Iman.

Sheikh Reda Bedier said: “Watch the little things; a small leak will sink a great ship.”

You see, sometimes, we have our feet in two separate boats, one which has the flag of our desires on it and the other which says, “I love you, Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala.” It’s sad how we juggle between what’s necessary and what’s not and prefer what our heart desires over what our Khaliq wants us to do. Ustaad Khurram Murad said:

“Your Qalb (heart) cannot be compartmentalized. You cannot dedicate one piece of it to Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and another to some other god, like wealth, status, career, spouse and so on. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala is One, Indivisible and wants the human being to be undivided in service to Him. So long as our heart lies in a hundred places, so long as our eyes are set in a hundred directions, so long as we have many loyalties, we shall never be able to achieve that condition of ‘holding onto Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala’.”

Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has said:

“O you who believe! Enter into Islam whole heartedly without any reservation.” [2: 208]

I want you to know, that if I can do it, then you can too. If you have anything in your heart that perturbs you greatly and it gives you sleepless nights, ask yourself one question: “Am I prepared for my death, my akhirah?” Truth is, nothing in life is guaranteed but death. After deleting my Facebook account and saying goodbye to it for good inshaAllah, I have so much faith in Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala that He will give me a better platform to do dawah, one that will not distract me inshaAllah.

I pray that each and every one of us succeeds in becoming a believing, steadfast servant for Allah’s sake. May Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala, enable us to be amongst those who purify themselves and help us differentiate between right and wrong, Ameen.

Article Source: I Got It Covered (igotitcovered.org)

A very interesting and thought-provoking article written by a sister called Maryam. It's always good to assess what we are doing in life and question ourselves to ensure that we maintain the condition of our Imaan. Facebook and how it is used varies from person to person, in the article, Sister Maryam is talking about her own personal experiences, she is not preaching to others and she is not arguing that people should leave Facebook, it's a personal decision for each person. For some people, it could be bringing them closer to Islam, yet for others that might not be the case (Sameer, Dadyal Online).

Namaz-E-Janazah of Shaheed Naik Ishfaq Pakistani Soldier from Dadyal

Naik Ishfaq, a Pakistani Soldier from Dadyal, Azad Kashmir, became Shaheed (martyred) after the NATO Attack on Pakistani Soliders on 26th November 2011. The incident led to serious concern across the nation, as over 20 other soldiers also became Shaheed. Questions are being asked globally about how Pakistan must change it's relationship with USA and there is anger amongst the Pakistani community across the globe at the current Government for allowing such incidents to happen.

This is a very difficult time for the family of the Dadyali Shaheed, his sacrifice will never be forgotten, he gave his life for the country and achieved martyrdom. Our thoughts and our prayers are with his family and with the families of all those Pakistani soldiers. Sadly, a son, a husband, a brother, a friend, will not be returning home, ever again. We sincerely hope that the Pakistani Army takes action and measures are introduced to ensure that this doesn't happen ever again. At the moment, temporary measures have been introduced by General Kayani and strategy review has been called for by the Government and the military.

Islam Ko Apna Banaa Lo - Islamic Urdu Shayari



















Islam ki roshni se apnay dilon main ujalon ki baarish kar do,


ek baar deen waali zindagi jee lo,


phir naa bhaago ke idhar udhar,


saari daulat, saari kamyaabi deen main karo haasil,


ek baar to mauqa dey do apnay aap ko,


zindagi ek baar hai, mauqa har roz naa khoya karo,


aaj hi shuru karo, aaj hi apnay Deen ko maqsad banaa lo,


ek baar zindagi ko jee lo, sakoon saaray jahaan ka apna banaa lo....


naa jiyo udhaasi main, naa andheron main raho,


aa jao Islam ko apna banaa lo...
