Dua to Dil se maangi jaati hai, Zubaan se nahi,
Qabool to uski bhi hoti hai Jiski Zubaan nahi.

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.

The first ever Cordless Phone was created by God.

He named it "Prayer"...

It never Loses its Signal Strength and you never have to Recharge it.

We never get what we want,
We never want what we get,
We never have what we like,
We never like what we have.

It's true that we don't know
What we've got until it's gone,
But it's also true that we don't know
What we've been missing until it arrives.

Dil paak naheen toh paak ho sakta naheen insaan;

warna iblees ko bhi aatay thay wazu kay faraaez bahot.


- Allama Iqbal


If heart is not pure, then pure can't be a person;
else satan also knew the requisites of ablution.

WAQT NAHI '

Har khushi Hai Logon Ke Daman Mein,
Par Ek Hansi Ke Liye Waqt Nahi.
Din Raat Daudti Duniya Mein,
Zindagi Ke Liye Hi Waqt Nahi.

Saare Naam Mobile Mein Hain,
Par Dosti Ke Liye Waqt Nahi.
Gairon Ki Kya Baat Karen,
Jab Apno Ke Liye Hi Waqt Nahi.

Aankhon Me Hai Neend Badee,
Par Sone Ka Waqt Nahi.
Dil Hai Ghamon Se Bhara ,
Par Rone Ka Bhi Waqt Nahi.


Paison ki Daud Me Aise Daude,
Ke Thakne ka Bhi Waqt Nahi.
Paraye Ehsason Ki Kya Kadr Karein,
Jab Apne Sapno Ke Liye Hi Waqt Nahi.


Tu Hi Bata E Zindagi,
Iss Zindagi Ka Kya Hoga,
Ke Har Pal Marne Walon Ko,
Jeene Ke Liye Bhi Waqt Nahi.........

Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Steve Jobs [1955 – 2011]

The reason why the world is in so much chaos right now is because :

"Assembled in a crowd, people lose their powers of reasoning and their capacity for moral choice. Their suggestibility is increased to the point where they cease to have any judgement or will of their own. They become very excitable, they lose all sense of individual or collective responsibility, they are subject to sudden accesses of rage, enthusiasm and panic. In a word, man in a crowd behaves as though he had swallowed a large dose of what I have called “herd-poisoning.”

Reading is a private, not a collective activity. The writer speaks only to individuals, sitting by themselves in a state of normal sobriety. The orator speaks to masses of individuals, already well primed with herd poison. They are at his mercy and, if he knows his business, he can do what he likes with them." ~Aldous Huxley

Obviously My creator is Khuda & Khuda Na Dai Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb ( tus ). Everthing is not to be mentioned it is understood. But i forgot that on this forum i have to elaborate every quote as there are many Cuckoos like you jiske Dimag ma Obvious baatein ghusti hi nahi hai.
AbdeSMBSMS... you say that your creator is "Khuda & Khuda Na Dai Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb ( tus)" .... that means you are treating Khuda na dai equally with Khuda which is the biggest shirk... la hawla wal kuwat illa billa il ali il azim...

Unread post by Akhtiar Wahid » Thu Jan 30, 2014 7:50 am

"The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people."
Martin Luther King, Jr.

"False riches, consisting of money, houses and lands, acquired by selfish means at cost to others and thereafter used selfishly, are almost always used for the oppression of other persons."
Joseph Franklin Rutherford

"He who allows oppression shares the crime."
Desiderius Erasmus

"When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny and oppression no matter how holy the motives."
Robert A. Heinlein

"If you want a free society, teach your children what oppression tastes like. Tell them how many miracles it takes to get from here to there. Above all, encourage them to ask questions. Teach them to think for themselves."
Jonathan Sacks

"As there is oppression of the majority such oppression will be fought with increasing hatred."
Bram Fischer

"When you have increasing power of religious groups, oppression of women increases. Women are oppressed in all religions."
Nawal El Saadawi

"Instead, in the absence of respect for human rights, science and its offspring technology have been used in this century as brutal instruments for oppression."
John Charles Polanyi

"Oppression is something that one group of people commits against another group specifically because of a threatening characteristic shared by the latter group."
Robin Morgan

"What people don't know about oppression is that the oppressor works much harder. You always grew up being told you were not smart enough or not fast enough, but we all lived from the time we were children to beat the system."
Hugh Masekela

"The truly wise talk little about religion and are not given to taking sides on doctrinal issues.
When they hear people advocating or opposing the claims of this or that party in the church, they turn away with a smile such as men yield to the talk of children.
They have no time, they would say, for that kind of thing.
They have enough to do in trying to faithfully practice what is beyond dispute." ~George MacDonald

"The most dangerous lie is that which most closely resembles the truth." - Jan Groenveld 

One religion throwing stones at the other is akin to the Easter Bunny calling Santa Clause a fake.

The Charles Schultz Philosophy of Life
The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip.
You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just read straight through, and you’ll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers.
They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school?
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time?
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with .

Easier?

The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards.

They are the ones that care.

Charles Schultz

Watch your Thoughts, they become words.
Watch your Words, they become actions.
Watch your Actions, they become habits.
Watch your Habits, they become character.
Watch your Character, for it becomes your Destiny.
