My blood link from my FATHER side with Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) & Imam Ali (A.S)……2


I belong to Syed family (most respected & honorable in the world). Who are Syed’s????……Syed’s are the direct descendants of The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) Of Islam. The Prophet’s daughter Syeda Bibi Fatima-tuz Zahra (S.A) was married to Hazrat Imam Ali ibne Abu-Talib (A.S) and who was also the youngest cousin of the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH).

Our responsibility on Eidul-Azha Day


Eid al-Adha is an Islamic festival to commemorate the willingness of Hazrat Ibrahim A.S (also known as Abraham) to follow Allah’s (God’s) command to sacrifice his son. Muslims believe Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) was commanded by God to sacrifice his son, Hazrat Ismail. The belief holds that God stayed his hand, sparing the boy, and placing a ram in his place.

As the story written in Holy Book Al-Quran (37:102-107)

Then when (the son) Reached (the age of) (Serious) work with him He said: “Oh my son! I see in vision That I offer thee in sacrifice: Now see what is Thy view!” (The son) said: “Oh my father! Do As thou art commanded: Thou wilt find me, If Allah so wills one Practicing patience and constancy!” ….So when they had both Submitted their wills (to Allah), And he had laid him Prostrate on his forehead (For sacrifice), We called out to him, “Oh Abraham!” “Thou hast already fulfilled The vision!” thus indeed Do We reward Those who do right.…..For this was obviously A trial…..And We ransomed him With a momentous sacrifice” (Reference taken from : http://www.animalsinislam.com)

Muslims around the world observe this event. Eid al-Adha, which in Arabic literally means ‘festival of the sacrifice‘, marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage. During the festival, families that can afford to sacrifice a ritually acceptable animal (sheep, goat, camel, or cow) do so and then divide the flesh equally among themselves, the poor, and friends and neighbors.

Allah Almighty (God) said in Holy Book Quran (22:37);

“It is not their meat Nor their blood, that reaches Allah: it is your piety That reaches Him: He Has thus made them subject To you, that ye may glorify Allah for His guidance to you:* And proclaim the Good News To all who do right

Pakistan as a majority muslim country/nation celebrates this event each year. The traditional way in Pakistan (or even in India, Bangladesh) is that families buy animals (sheep, goat, camel, or cow) from the animal market and bring them to their respective home instead of taking them to any farm outside city either two weeks earlier then the festival date or one day before depends upon them (Govt has not restricted anyone) as it is their prime right. Many people in form of a group together (due to financial constraints and a burden on one individual to buy a animal alone) may purchase a whole carcass from a butcher or slaughterhouse and divide it among themselves or just buy generous portions of meat for a communal meal on Eid-al-Adha. These families slaughter the animal within their premises of house either by hiring a professional butcher (mostly) or many do it themselves considering it a religious obligation.

One of the basic purpose of slaughtering animal on this day is to distribute its meat among those poor and vulnerable families who won’t been able to eat meat in the whole year due to financial constraints….

Unfortunately, people in the cities (many but not all) who are celebrating Eid in Asian Countries does not follow ethical rules and obligations as a civic citizen and instead of slaughtering animals in a separate and combine place, they do it at their own residence. Now, here i want to put up some important points for discussion which i consider should review by everyone;

  • People slaughter these animals in-front of their kids (minor in age) and don’t stop them from watching
  • Mostly, they slaughter on open roads, streets due to not having adequate space within their houses
  • They do not clean neither the waste generated by the animal before the sacrifice day (in most cases animals stay outside the houses due to less space in their premises) and depend only on the government services to do each and every cleaning for them. Nor they properly clean the streets or roads from the blood after slaughtering on the Eid day
  • People do not bother to through the waste (like unusable stomach or other body parts of animal) in the nearby waste container nor they put it in any bag for final disposal but mostly throw it in the open area or left it on road / street where they did sacrifice

One of my relative informed during a visit to their house on the event day that many people of the area put-up the waste (stomach of animal) in front of their house instead of throwing it in the government installed waste container in nearby main roads or handing over it to the waste collectors appointed by the government on this special event.

This un-ethical behavior of the people (it includes educated people in large number) is very common in South Asian Countries and governments are not only negligent to bound everyone not to throw their waste in any open area but very much frightened to implement it due to the fear of resistance and from people’s sentiments. There are some reasons that Why people show un-ethical behavior on the event day?….

  • People are not ready to pay any fee to the government for cleaning services and consider it as a total responsibility of the government organizations to clean every thing
  • They are negligent towards fulfilling their prime responsibility set by the religion and as per the rules of the educated and ethical society
  • Government never tried
    1. to develop a proper place by hiring professional butchers where each and every person having a sacrifice animal should bring for final action
    2. Government never made such laws to bound people of city or town not to slaughter animal on the roads or streets or in any open area

Some years back, one of the prime and elite Housing Society in Lahore tried to implement and made a special place to slaughter animals instead of using house premises but they failed to implement that in the next years because residents were not agree to.

Getting degrees from schools/colleges/universities does not mean that you are educated.

If any one want to access the quality of a education in any person then assessment can be done on the basis of response/attitude you give/show during talk/discussion, how much you act on societal ethics and how much you got a civic sense

Sharing some real Life happenings / experiences …….. 10.. (Role of Parents in upbringing of a child)


In my point of view, a human is developed by the contribution of many things which include his own habits with which he / she was born, training and upbringing by parents and siblings, habits of his / her friends, atmosphere of home and school as well as of neighborhood, town / city etc. But the most important are the parents with whom a child spends about half of his / her life and the the training they provide results in shaping of his / her personality / attitude / responce towards daily life matters.

I am lucky enough like the other guys in the world that i got the best parents. Though i lost my father at the age of 24 (MashaAllah mother is still alive) but those 24 years were the best with him. In the culture of my country, male child especially the elder one or the only one is always been pampered by parents and which destroys his habits and become too harmful for rest of his life. Whereas, i m also a only male child of my house but my parents never let me cross the discipline line which are required for upbringing of any child. They kept their check and balance over me even it was in college. The check and balance never means that parents put their eyes on you for 24 hours a day but it means they develop you in such a way that you feel responsible and be mindful that you will not going to cheat with parents and not involve yourself in any bad habits.

One of the best way f upbringing a child i learned from my parents is that never fulfill all desires / demands of a child which makes him / her very possessive and child want everything according to the desire / demand or in other words habitually the child never get agree in any compromise in life if parents are fulfilling all the desires. I remember that i got crazy for a remote car which i saw in the Anarkali Bazar (Market) of Lahore in my childhood and started crying that at any cost i need it. But my parents took me back to home without fulfilling that desire and after one week o so (may be), my father gifted me the same car. It developed a habit of wait and compromise in myself.

They developed a sense that what is wrong and what is a rightful thing and how i have to save myself from bad class-fellows having bad habits in the school. They regularly coordinated with the teacher of the class that whom i am sitting with and what are his habits. Parents never let me play with the kids of streets / neighborhood but only in our own premises because their habits were again worst due to the abusive language they use with their own parents or house members. Whenever i went to my friends home, my father dropped me at their residence and picked me up by maintaining a strong check.

One of the best sentence i remember my parents made and it is now part of my life

“Son! give honor to each and every human being either he is your worst enemy. It is your duty to respect him / her even if you don’t like him and respect all elders and those who are younger than you”

My parents developed a habit that when ever you eat lunch in school then share it with your class-fellows to develop a strong habit of sharing. When ever they took me to markets and saw any beggar / needy, they asked me to go and serve him with money or food now i unable to stop my self when ever i saw any needy person and tries to help him / her in what ever the capacity i have. If i ever tried to say any thing in a way that is considered as unethical in front of any one either i was in angry mood or not they immediately shut/stopped me from crossing the lines. It developed a strong control in myself.

Parents trained me that how i have to live in any circumstances either those circumstances are in my favor or not. I don’t feel shy in sleeping on the floor with mattress or not or on a luxury bed. I am ready to travel in public transport like ordinary people travel or in a luxury car. It means i am being prepared by parents to fully turn myself according to the situation. I wrote before a story of my school friend who was not ready to travel through public transport and had considered it as not according to his high class. Its a duty of parents to prepare you for all ups and downs coming in the life that you will not feel alien to the situation.

They gave me monthly pocket especially given by my grandmother (Taj Sultana) and develop me that how i have to save and spend, how you have to deal with the time when you have the less money. I don’t feel shy sitting with either poor guy or rich and talk with them according to their structure.

I remember when i started a college and use to go for academy, my friend offered me to smoke but suddenly refused him by informing that neither my fore-fathers smoked nor i would do and i will maintain that record and i cant cheat my parents. It means that parents developed a strong will / habit in myself to become wall against any bad offer by anyone and how to deal with the situation.

My parents use to took me to all family gatherings and i found out that it helped me in maintaining strong ties with the family members. Now, my father is not alive but all family members know me and i know them and do not feel shy in meeting them or by participating in any family gatherings. On the other hand, currently neither young ones of new generation bother to go in any family events nor parents take them and now i see a wide gap where family members and young ones especially teens don’t know each other because they hardly met.

Th moral of all above examples from my training by my own parents is that its a responsibility of parents that how they develop a child and how they stop him / her from developing worst / bad habits. How they inculcate best habits and make it permanent by maintaining strong check and balance at each second of life especially in the teen age.
