About 22 Rajab and Kundey Ki Nazar

22 Rajab: The concept of Nazr in Islam (Koonday)

In the name of Allah, the beneficent the merciful.

The word NAZR is an Arabic word which means "an offering," in its verbal form it will mean "to offer" or "to make a spiritual vow."

Note that NAZR is used in Arabic in a totally different meaning also - "to warn," that is not in this context. Therefore, we leave that for the time.

The Glorious Qur'an has used the word "NAZR" in both meanings. …

Racial Profiling - Hijras and Me Shown the Door

Racial Profiling - Hijras and Me Shown the Door, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. At first
I was nominated
later along with the hijras
bag baggage and all
I was shown the door
pimping for my own blogs
was a jarring musical score
in a white mans world
its is a white mans law
racial profiling hard core
who cares for hijras
or hijra eunuch blogs
awards that suck
make you sore
racism exists
in the soul of a white heart
hate for a black man at the core
good bad and the ugly
my thoughts
based on my past
life a pedestrian whore
they fuck and forget you
rights of admission
reserved for dogs and blacks
before you register vote
read the sticker on
this racist online store
behind the facade lies the devil
a white face more evil
like never before

A mailing list is what sells
what do you take me for
fragmented genius
truth is a bitter and sweet pill
live learn and explore

"En quête de Paix au Paradis"- Naneh Lala

I received a request from a French poet Naneh Lala on Facebook ..

Hello Mr Shakir
I am a French speaking poet. I have taken the liberty of translating your beautiful text for Iran’s Neda. I would need your permission to put it up on line, in French.

Below is the French text of your poem:

En quête de paix au paradis
L’esprit de la liberté vit
Etouffé, tabassé, piétiné,
Il vivra toujours
La mort vaut mieux que l’esclavage
Ecoute pleurer mon pays bien aimé
Mon peuple – à toi
Je dis au revoir
Moi, Neda, au cœur de l’Iran
Ne suis plus qu’un battement de cœur qui meurt
natarsim natarsim ma hame ba ham hastim
Répond un linceul en sang
Voix de la volonté du peuple d’Iran
Jamais régime diabolique ne pourra désavouer
Les larmes en fusion qui coulent aux yeux de l’homme
En quête de paix au paradis

Thank you
