Calmness arrives …

This morning when I left home for office, Islamabad was a lot more calm and peaceful. No rush and hustle bustle of morning hours. A mark difference in the number of cars stopping at signals.

Islamabad was surrounded in a feel of peace and tranquility that I adore about my city, just like old days’. Most of the people in the city took off on friday and fled off to subsequent cities and towns they come from. For a long and joyfull week in view. Interestingly, I noticed some 4-5 families carrying the cases to their cars at different places in the wee hours.

Islamabad’s known to be a “Dead City” specially on eids, though the trend has hugely changed in past few years. It’s not dead any more … it may be to YOU, if you haven’t yet understood the soul of this serene city.

The scene was even more interesting on my way back to home at around 3:30, cars with bags on carriers, vans and their roofs packed with people … all on their way either towards GT road or the motorway.

That was quite a sight.

But this is the tale of a day in Islamabad before Eid, nights are alive!!!

    I saw nato troops in Karachi city every where last night in my dream I saw Karachi like Iraq. Very Important and Dangerous Cautions for Present Ummah in Pakistan:

    Please break that Zakat lockers, satan reside in those lockers which is locked on Zakat boxes in Masjid (Mosques) and every where in poor regions, Allah want those Zakat boxes should be open for all humanity feel free and Allah always watching us who is needy and who is banking for nuffs, Zakat (Donation or charity) is for Allah not for nuffs or ego.

    Donation or charity is the key for the peace in the world and fair charity only possible from this way make the box and put it on your door out side home or make a big charity box put it on your main street corners and daily put some money or any thing you better know in your region needy poor peoples they can pickup from that boxes this is the way you can help hungers in the world if every one do like this Allah will accept your charity and also Allah knows who took that charity doesn’t matter you also poor but spare it some for donate to other poor peoples, make your self new environment take care of each others Allah give you more Allah always watching you …

    This is only one key bring the revolution in the world and this message came to me from Allah and Allah want equally share with your brothers what you have for your life facilities.. like one tree roots not bothers his branches who gave the fruits or not, roots not differentiate and equally distribute the food to all branches same thing branches not differentiate which root is good for his and they distribute his all energy food equally to all roots and its called complete strong tree same thing you all humans need to favor each others with charity and donations

    Your community charity not reach to needy persons it always filtered by satan so please don’t considers your charity organizations linked with hungers and needy peoples… Please make decisions your self other then no difference between animals and you..

    With this kind of charity or donations your homes will be get special mercy from Allah and Allah protect those houses… Please start today if you live in poor regions in your countries…

    Please translate and populate into your voice… Please make decision today, out there so many hunger eyes looking messiah who help them first…
