IMG_0464MAINMany Muslims in various countries pray on the 15th night of Shabaan, and ask for forgiveness of their sins and on the following day proceed to fast.
Imam Ibn Majah states:

It is narrated by Ali (Radi allahu unho) that the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] stated; “ when it is the 15th night of Shabaan, do Qiyaam in the night, and fast in the morning, and ask for forgiveness. Because on that night Allah calls: ‘Is there anyone who is asking for forgiveness so that I can forgive them, who is in distress that I may relieve his distress, is there anyone who needs (rizq) food that I may give it to him.’ And this continues till the morning.” [Ibn Majah chapter Salaah]

Imam Tirmidhi writes:

Aisha Radi Allahu unha said: “On this night the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] went to Jannat-ul-Baqee to make du’a, I followed him. The Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] said to me: Allah puts His attention towards the first Heaven, and forgives the sins of the people, even if they were equivalent to the hairs of the goats of Bunn Qalb. (A tribe who at the time had a lot of goats)
[ Tirmidhi , Kitab-us-Siyaam]
In our country people makes Halwas or any sweet dish for distribution amongst relatives, neighbors and poor. I saw my mother making 2-3 types of HaLWAS on this special occasion.

IMG_4400Bun Kebabs are the traditional and addictive specialty of Pakistan, and especially, Karachi. You find a lot of Bun Kebab vendors scattered all across Karachi, the most famous ones being on Pakistan Chowk, Burns Road, Bahadurabad and Gizri.
Over the years, the bun-kebab has remained a staple, even as the city around it has succumbed to the forces of globalisation. Mr. Burger, which was established on Tariq Road in the 1980s, was considered as respectable an eatery as a restaurant in a five-star hotel. KFC and McDonald’s also entered Pakistan in the late 1990s, as part of a wave of foreign investment in the country. But Karachi’s bun-kebab vendors proudly claim that their business wasn’t affected much by the advent of these international franchises.

Apparently, a slice of thick cheddar cheese on a grilled patty can’t compete with the taste of a fried egg on a mysterious kebab patty. Vendors across the city insist that both of these can not be compared to the other as they offer completely different tastes. One comes with crisp green lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and French fries on the side, while the other comes with a mush of cabbage and onions along with spicy ketchup or watery chatni. “Angrezi taste hai woh,” volunteers one bun-kebab vendor, dismissing any comparison between his speciality and the western import, the burger.

“I’ve always been a roadside attraction. You don’t necessarily need to have bills of cash in your designer jeans to get a piece of me. You don’t need to belong to a particular socio-economic class either and if someone says you do – they are lying. Just watch, they’ll be at the stall when their stomachs growl. I don’t offer a fancy air-conditioned seating arrangement, nor do I want you to have an unforgettable experience when you visit. I’m going to offer you exactly what you came for: a quick bite in an extremely polluted, over-crowded and noisy environment. And it’ll be well-worth the Rs. 20 you pay in return.”
That’s what a bun-kebab would say to you if it could talk.

(Information through Google search)

Having Bun Kebabs is an entire experience in itself. It involves not just eating, but also watching the vendor make it front of you: frying the patty, toasting the buns, adding the delicious mint chutney, the sliced onions and then closing it – your mouth waters…isn’t it.

Oh how the years go by,
Oh how time can certainly fly.
From once just a thought in far away dreams,
now into my arms and in my eyes gleam
the presence of you.
Your laughter and smiles
which go on for miles,
warms my heart and soul.
You’re growing up so fast,
as I wish each moment with you to last forever.
My little boy will someday be a man
and right by your side I will forever stand.
I will pick up the pieces when you fall,
I will hold your hand and help you stand tall.
And when the day comes when you are on your own,
never feel that you are alone.
No matter how near or far apart
I am always right there in your heart.
Always remember whatever you go through
that no matter what, I will always love you.

My dearest Son You have brought me nothing but pure joy since that very first time when i hold you in my arms. Watching you grow, absorbing the world around you, inquisitive and delighted to learn, I’m reminded each day of the treasure you bring into my world.

As all mothers do, I have goals, dreams and wishes for you. I have, as you can imagine, dozens of them…But top of all.
May Allah Give you health and success in your life. AMEEN.
Thank you My son for completing my life.I love you my Son….:)
