It’s a second time when I’ve been given a special award. This time bySalman Wani. I don’t have words to thank him enough. He is facing the most crucial chapter of his life. My prayers and blessings are with him and his valley Kashmir.
From the valley of martyrs
From the land of believers
His name is a strength
In the reek of ammo
He breathes in a wind of hope
His hands are empty
He can defy any devil though
Fighting for his motherland
He’s refused to bow
Before unjust vow
In quatervois of life
Challenging the worst
And fighting with brutality
He has an unshakable belief
In Almighty Allah
Who knows everything
Who is AL- ADL, the just
Salman’s thoughtful questions:
1: What is the importance of education in our society?
To prepare youth to run after a piece of paper that has a coloured stamp. They have to run faster to get the proclamation of mundane success. In this run and grab they shun off the golden lessons written in their way around, lessons which make them able to live life as a living being.
2: What is your source of strength?
Strength is the name of the belief that we have in our CREATOR. The more you believe the more your strength gets stronger.
3: What do you expect from the world?
What can we expect from a mirage, just nothing…
4: What family means to you?
My wings, without them I can’t fly and completely unable to discover the world before me.
5: Define the relation of friendship.
A tie that ties your hardship with its soft raiment.
6: What is the thing you keep searching for yourself?
7: What is the thing that makes you happy in tough times?
Presence of a belief that this too shall pass.
8: What is the definition of respect for you?
9: What is your ambition in life?
To be able to serve the servants of Almighty Allah.
10: Describe yourself in one line.
I myself a wanderer and myself a destination.
Thank you so much, Salman, for putting such thoughtful questions. Answering them I felt myself anew that itself is special too.
God bless you!
