Any matter of importance which is not begun with Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah) remains defective.
O Allah! Controller of the hearts, direct our hearts to Your obedience. (ameen)
Nazar mein hai hamari jadai rah-e-fana, Ghalib
K yeh shirazah hai aalam ke ajzaie parishan ka
Ghalib! images of death are piled up everywhere,
for, this is the sum of this world’s scattered elements.
Breaking a 16-month-long resolution.
Because so nostalgic.
In my despair I remember
that there is life after death;
there is life after death
and I have no problem.
But I ask:
is there life before death?
