First of all Eid Mubarak to all
my near & dear ones, friends and fans on the occasion of Eidul Azha 2016. One of
the four most important pillars of Islam i.e. Haj is performed by millions of
Muslims from all over the world.
Also, millions of animals including camel, cow, goat, sheep and yak are
sacrificed according to affordability as there are conditions, rules,
principles, duties and responsibilities but absolutely no compulsion in Islam.
The duties and responsibilities could best be described in short as follows:
Worship God and serve humanity in reality.
The same applies for Christianityand Judaism as well. It is a matter of
understanding only which has been cunningly messed by distortion, confusion and
WISE & VICE PEOPLE:In order to become wise and nice, read the books with open
eyes and proper understanding so that all including self, family, relatives,
friends, community, society, system, country and humanity could benefit by the
knowledge, skills and experiences gained and overall contribution made.
It is the good, positive and constructive contribution which matter the most
otherwise anyone canobtain degree, diploma and certificate to become and be
Like myloving, caring, sensible and responsible mother having good nature and
character and millions of other such people and parents who despite being less
educated or uneducated did or do their best through proper understanding,
sensibility, responsibility, sleepless nights and great efforts and hardships to
make ushighly educated, responsible and a good human being. This is one of the
best contributions they made or make along with worship of God. They deserve to
be recognized, respected and saluted. They are the best ideals.
Those considering them illiterates and keep insulting them are the most
unfortunate ones and worst creatures on earth.I have seen at various places many
parents and seniors crying and complaining. They were humiliated, insulted and
thrown out or treated as servants. Their woeful tales can cause heart attacks.
In order to become vice just don’t remain niceand become friend of the devil and
follow him i.e. become committed enemy of the mankind, keep people away from
good and God and hurt, harm and kill them.
GOOD COMPANY: When I say that I don’t deserve to be called a Muslim, lover,
follower and believer of God the basis is: During 24 hours of each day, do I
really worship God and serve humanity in reality? It is a very simple
self-accountability and analysis to judge your character, words, deeds, actions
This mirror of conscience is always with us to show us our true face. The
reality is that we deliberately avoid the mirror of truth and as a result are
trapped by the whispers of the devil and cunningness of his followers and
This is why it is said that a person is known and judged by the company he
keeps. This is why it is extremely important to have a good company and friends.
Since childhood, I saw the good company and friends of my father. They were few
but very close and family friends. The families of each other used to meet and
greet each other almost every week in the shape of get together, lunch, dinner,
picnic and party at home and at various tourist spots.
Such company and friends protected us from isolation, depression and
frustration. We all lived and met like onefamily. Even today the children and
grandchildren of his friends are our friends. This is the beauty of such
relationship and company.
FOOTSTEPS:Following the footsteps of my parents, I too emphasize on having good
company and family friends, particularly when living abroad. Why good company
and family friends when living abroad are very important? I will tell you my own
After the 1965 Indo-Pak war when diplomatic relations broke with Malaysia, my
father went to Singapore and served in the Pakistan Trade Commission there.
My mother could not adjust herself there and started missing her parents and
siblings very much.She suffered from homesickness and became hysterical and
critically ill. She could not even recognize us and was bed-ridden. We were all
very much disturbed and extremely worried.
Except us, there was none to understand, help and support her in reality as a
friend or family member. As her condition worsened, the doctors advised us to
send her back to Pakistan.
She was sent back to Pakistan and within six months there she fully recovered
and became normal and healthy. This shows how much important are family, company
and friends and how much they matter. Now she is over 85 years but very much
active, healthy and happily living in Chicago, US. All the family members,
particularly my eldest brother, take great care of her.
I can never forget that bad experience and the hard time faced. For over nearly
two years, I lived in Singapore with my eldest brother and father. There we
learnt a lot including how to take care of ourselves alone, cook food andtake
care of the house and study. This was a good experience for us. I got first
This lesson helped me greatly when my father passed away in 1973. I suddenly
became very strong and immediately took charge of the house, mother and siblings
and assured them that together we can manage things and face the challenges.
Also, I can never forget thatcrucial moment,the painful testing time and theway
my mother looked at me and asked the difficult questioned: “Son, what will
happen now and how will we face the crisis and challenges?” The tragedy shook
her badly and stunned her. With tears rolling from her red eyes, she kept
weeping silently. Every drop of tear had a message and enough to tear the
Realizing the situation and condition, I hugged her tightly and said: “Look at
me, I assure you everything will be fine. God is and good people are with us.
Exactly this is what happened. God and good friends helped and supported us to
become what we are today.God’s blessings and the moral support and good company
were a great source of strength, encouragement and happiness for us.
Like all others, we too faced problems butnever faced depression or
disappointment. Wedepended on God, always remained thankful to Him and lived and
progressed happily. Even today we follow the same way---Love, help and support
each otherand all others,which gives us great happiness and satisfaction and
which we consider as one of the greatest blessings of God.
Canada and people strongly believe in family reunion. In order to make Canada
and families better and stronger, Canada must consider this factor seriously to
allow sponsorship of siblings. It will help greatly towards progress and
prosperity of Canada and communities. This is a food for thought for the rulers,
leaders, policymakers and all people.
This will be in the best interest of Canada and people of all communities.This
is why it is important for all of us to join heads and hands and unite on a
common platform to live &work together for stronger family reunion and stronger
Canada and all Canadians. Positive thinking and practical approach is needed to
help, support and serve all people and families to adjust properly and become
strong in reality.
I migrated to Canada in 1999 and fortunately since then greatly enjoying the
company of good Canadians and community people and the best facilities, benefits
and opportunities provided by Canada. I said fortunately because there are many
people who unfortunately various problems and hardships including most
importantly family reunion absence of sponsorship of siblings. This sponsorship
would greatly help keep families united, strong and happy. Their contribution
will help in the progress and prosperity of Canada.
I visited along with my family and friends many beautiful touristic places in
Canada including Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward
Island, British Columbia and Alberta provinces.
Shahid Hashmi of Canpak Chamber of Commerce, his spouse Seema Hashmi & family
played an important role in visiting many places in US & Canada and introducing
good friends. They deserve credit for promoting good relationship and building
Apart from their other interests, they get satisfaction in doing this---serving
the community by united all people, communities and families. Although I
disapprove and strongly disagree with him on certain issues and his views but
still I cherish the good relationship.
As founder of SHIR Inter Network, my mission & vision is to Serve Humanity In
Reality (SHIR), it is also my job to protect all people, particularly the
innocent and helpless ones, from clutches and cunningness of the mafia and the
committed enemies of mankind. Whether I succeed or not, it is my duty and
responsibility and I will keep doing it. God is always there to support me and
My job is also to protect the Muslim communityfrom the nefarious designs of the
dangerous lobby operating in two forms Pro-Mullah and Anti-Mullah. The objective
of both is the same---Misguide the people by creating confusion, division,
distraction and ultimately causing maximum damage and destruction. People take
me wrong that I am against overall Mullahs. I like and respect the good Mullahs.
They are an important part of the family and society and my SHIR mission and
vision. My war is against the Cut-Mullahs, corrupts and crooks.
EID SACRIFICE:For the first since 1999, I along with my friends and their
families went outside Toronto for sacrificing animals. The company group leader
was again Shahid Hashmi and Seema Hashmi.
Others included Syed Muhammad Iqbal, President of Pak Seniors Forum, Hameeduddin,
Muhammad Arshad of ARCO Computers and his wifeRubina Arshad, Tariq Durrani and
his wife Huma Tariq, Sarosh Riaz, her daughter Farzeen and her husband Faraz
We went in two cars to Dumbriar Farm,located at RR#2 Conn, Ontario, N0G 1N0,
almost three-hour drive from Toronto. It was an enjoyable drive with Hameeduddin
beautiful narration in pure Hyderabadi style about his experiences of living and
driving challenges in Saudi Arabia and visit of his uncle from Karachi,
Pakistan, to Hyderabad Deccan, India.
The story of Mamu Bhanja (Uncle &nephew) was very interesting and worth
listening and non-stop laughing. Tariq Durrani sang in his beautiful voice old
Hindi hits. Seema Hashmi’s Kabab rolls and tea provided great taste and relief.
At the Dumbriar Farm, Mr Clair, the owner, who is a close friend of Shahid
Hashmi, was waiting anxiously for us as we reached late. He welcomed us all
warmly, showed us the lambs, discussed the deal and details and then took us to
the Holstock slaughter, about forty-minute drive from his farm.
At Holstock, since we were late the person who was supposed to slaughter left
after his time was up. Luckily, Tariq Durrani stepped forward and agreed to do
the job. Within fifteen minutes, he slaughtered by hand in Halal way all twelve
lambs. So sophisticated and quick was the process. Out of the twelve lams, eight
belong to Hameeduddin and his two sisters. The rest others included Tariq
Durrani and Muhammad Arshad.
PICNIC: It was a very good picnic& sacrifice experience there. On the way back
home, we stopped at Angels Diner, family restaurant, located 33Broadway Avenue
in Orangeville, Ontario. There we enjoyed very delicious fish & chips, tea,
coffee, ice cream, apple pie and cake.
Thetrip and adventure from morning till midnight was wonderful, exciting and
memorable. The credit goes to Shahid Hashmi, who jokingly says that he is not
interested in credit but cash.
Although I was sick and in great pain that day but the good trip, company and
friends made me feel fully well and healthy. This is the magic and outcome of
good relationship and togetherness.Let’s respect, like and love each other and
live and work together.
The Canadian rulers, policymakers and all leaders must realize the importance
and think seriously in the best interest of all families, communities, people
and Canada. Policy changes could be and should be made according to the needs of
the time. Failure to understand would only harm Canada and Canadians.
