Dear Brothers and Sisters in Imaan, Assalamo Alaikum.

In the year 1995 some friends handed me a photocopy of an old slab, excavated somewhere in Delhi. It was an engraved prayer (DUA) to seek protection of Allah against the Shaitaan, Devil, Evils and Afflictions. On reading the slab’s photo copy, it flashed in to my mind that it must have been the compilation by some pious and learned scholar who arranged Quranic verses in a sequence and into a concise para, seeking the protection of Allah the Most High, the Supreme in His Glory, against evil consequence. It is a zakr and Du’a-prayer in an excellence, invoking the protection of the great Lord, the most merciful. I was so overwhelmed with the quick results of the Dua that with His Grace, I decided to share the blessings with my other Brothers and Sisters in Imaan. I with my firm conviction of belief and confidence, request you my dear Brothers and Sisters in Imaan to read this Zikr by Heart or keep it ready at hand during your hours of need, to obtain Allah’s protection against come seen and unseen enemies. May Allah the most Gracious and Merciful Lord of the Worlds lead you and your family and friends to His ultimate protection. So, Must it have been designed by Allah to have been Handed over the slab’s photocopy, as shown hereafter, and share it with others, for what could be better blessings than to share His Grace and Mercy with others. Your Brother-In-Imaan, ABDUL KARIM PAREKH Nagpur - 8 India Ph.:

َ وَلاَ يَؤُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ (2:255

And He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory).

Tears: A Silent Expression

In memory of dearest friend
Nor Azam Azudin

Tears are a symbol of unspoken love, contrary to the belief that they are a sign of weakness.
Meandering through the corners of the Eyes,
Few drops of liquid fall,
Men called it Tears,
Pain, joy, fear and lovely memories all it expresses,

Following a line, crossing the cheek,
Wetting the face, like drops of pearl they shine,
A silent symbol of pain,
A testimony of mind's agony,
A natural catharsis of the emotional and physical stress,
A way to feel better, a path to solace,

Mr. heart gives the first signal when the river of tear is going to be on the high tide,
It may be the time you had a baby, it may be the time you met with an accident,
May be the time your loved one bid you a final goodbye,
May be you lost your cat, May be you won a prize,
May be you lost a game after years of working hard,
Be it a joy or a pain,

Heart begins to feel heavy, face anxious,
Stimulating the tear buds, eyes experience a whirlpool
Often you try, but you can't control,
Tears are such, if they once start, you can't stop,
Defying all the laws of dynamics,
They break free the chains of eyes,
And start flowing till they dry,

Assumed as a sign of weakness, they are hardly those,
For they represent a source of strength,
For all I could do when I saw the distance between you and I growing,
Was to let these Tears answer everything,
Conveying all the love, all the grief, in few drops of water,

Now, when you are infinitely separated,
I have made a river of Tears,
and I sail my life-boat often in it, in times of desperation,
Searching you on the shores of memory,

Often I get your glimpse, often I don't,
I emerge out from it as a winner, defying all odds...
But still with few drops of Tears on my cheek,
As a mark that I miss you...
