Firoze Shakir and Zanjir Bawa Enchained

Crowds gather wherever I go, and in the proximity of Zanji Bawa , the crowds keep increasing , this is an Indian trait to gawk, and to become a part of a situation that has no bearing to the person ..
Earlier it drove me round the bend, but than gradually I became used to it..even now people fall at my feet and it embarrasses me , they kiss my hands , my rings, they plead , to invoke the Lord to reduce their sufferings their pain..
And I am mere mortal , fragile with more pain than them , concealing it beneath the eyeliner of my photo blogs..
People need succor, and I can do nothing , I am as helpless or more as they are and can do nothing about it..
But this India I love the trusting caring India a drop that becomes an ocean..
touching everyone, this is the India that Dr Glenn Losack MD loves too..
We all carry our chains we know the weight that bears down upon us, we carry it from our cradle to our graves..some we leave behind as testimony of our Faith and our children carry it to their graves..Unbroken Karmic chain from one generation to the next..

Qasam Khuda ki, yeh ehsaan-e-Bint-e-Zehra (S.A) hai, Humain Hussain (A.S) ka maatam sikha gyi Zainab (S.A)."

DIL E BATOOL S.A KI TASKEEN HAI AZADARI,
YE TUM SE KIS NE KAHA TOHEEN HAI AZADARI?.
ZAMANY BHAR KO SIKHA GAI ZAINAB S.A.
HAMARI RASM NAHI DEEN HAI AZADARI..


" AAEGI IMAM(A.S) KI AWAZ ZI HASHAM,
KABAY KI SIMT UTHNE LAGEGA HAR EK KADAM,
SEENO PE HATH HONGAY NIGAHON MAIN SB KI NUM,
GARENGAY SEHNAY KABA MAIN ABBAS(A.S) KA ALAM,
FARSH-E-AZA BICHAYGA SHAH-E-MASHRAQUAIN(A.S) KA,
BARPA KERAINGAY... KABAY MAIN MATAM HUSSAIN(A.S) KA.


"Maanaa kay takht-e-Shaam pay baitha hai tu, magar!
Eemaan ki sarhad pay tera raaj tau nahin;
Bay-pardegi say asmat-e-Zainab (S.A) ghati nahin,
Ka'aba, ghilaaf-e-Ka'abeh ka mohtaaj tau nahin."


Tanha Nabi K Ilm Ki Waris Batool Thi,
Parda'nasheen Na Hoti To Yeh Bhi Rasool Thi,
Beti Ali Ki, Fatima K Dil Ka Chain Thi,
Zainab Bazar-e-Shâam Me Bilkul Hussain Thi...



"Bint-e-Ali ,Ali Ki Tarha Sarfaraz Hai
Zainab ,Khuda Ki Shan Muhammad Ka Naaz Hai
Zainab Raza-e-Sabr KiJaiy Namaz Hai
Zainab Nabi Ke DEEN kI Ummr-eDaraz Hai.


Pas tere Asadullah ka hai dil Zainab
Tujh mein Abbas bhi Shabbir bhi shamil Zainab
Kis mein himmat thi jo deta tere khutboan ka jawaab
Sub to jahil thay wahan koun tha qabil Zainab


"Zainab (s.a) Yazeediyat say baghawat ka naam hai;
Lutnay na di azeez kamayi Hussain (a.s) ki,
Zainab (s.a) nay khud larhi hai larhayi Hussain (a.s) ki;
Rooh-e-amal hai, azm ki duniya ka chain hai,
Baad-e-Hussain (a.s) dehr mein Zainab (s.a) Hussain (a.s) hai."


"Zainab (s.a) chali tau jabr ka sooraj palat gya,
Qadmon ki chaap sun kay sitam darr kay hutt gya;
Zalim Ameer-e-Shaam ka takhta ulat gya,
Khutbon kay dayiray mein zamana simat gya.

"Masooma-e-Konain (s.a) ka kirdar hai Zainab (s.a),
Abbas (a.s) ki tarah say wafa-daar hai Zainab (s.a);
Zainab (s.a) ko pukaray tu, koi waqt-e-museebat,
Haider (a.s) ki tarah kul ki madadgaar hai Zainab (s.a)."



"Ismat say bana hai meray Shabbeer (A.S) ka paikar,
Tu naar hai, wo noor ki tanveer ka paikar,
Takhreeb tera azm, wo ta'ameer ka paikar,
Tu najs sarapa hai, wo tat'heer ka paikar;
Tu jismon ka haakim hai, wo zehnon ka wali hai,
Tu Muawiya-zaada (L.A), wo Hussain (A.S) ibn-e-Ali (A.S) hai."

"Shabbeer (A.S) ki ghurbat pay ronay kay waastay,
Zehra (S.A) nay baiti maang li Parwardigaar say;
Bint-e-Ali (S.A) ki jurra't-o-himmat tau daikhye,
Nasl-e-Yazeed kaat di chaadar ki dhaar say."


"Reh gyi dasht mein tanha tau watan yaad aaya,
Pani jab paya tau har tishna-dehen yaad aaya;
Lay kay har cheez Madineh say chali thi Zainab (S.A),
Bhai ki laash pay ponhchi tau kafan yaad aaya."



Milta naheen tha koi sahara Yazeed ko,
Bibi (S.A) nay iss tarah se ujaarha Yazeed ko;
Khatoon (S.A) jung kar naheen sakti theen, iss lye:
Khutbon ki Zulfiqaar se maara Yazeed ko."

"Bulandiyon se buland hai muqaam Zainab (S.A) ka,
Durood parhh kay lia kar tu naam Zainab (S.A) ka;
Yeh sar pay chaadarain ab bhi gawahi daiti hain,
Hai pardeh-daari ka saara nizaam Zainab (S.A) ka."

“Zainab (S.A) Khuda ke deen ki ghumkhuaar ban gai,
Azm o amal mai Haider e Karrar (A.S) ban gai;
Deen e Nabi (S.A.W.W.A) pe anch na anay di, marhaba,
Baad e Hussain (A.S) us ki madadgar ban gai;
Majlis bapaa ki baad e rayhaee Hussain (A.S) ki,
Shah e Huda (A.S) ki pehli azadaar ban gai.”

This is a single blade zanjir matam done in Chennai at Ashura at the 1000 light mosque , this is a powerful set Ashura Shahadat set at Flickr and only Flickr members can see it...

This was shot by me in 2010 and the Shia of Chennai are very devout and their display of Azadari is worth seeing it once in your lifetime.

I have shot Moharam in Mumbai where I live , Moharam in Lucknow where I was born, but I have been in Mumbai since the age of one.

I have shot Moharam in Delhi Kolkatta Hussain Tekri Jaorah MP ..

But one place that Moharam grows on you is Hyderabad.. virtually a Karbala in India.

Ashura Shahadat Is Light That Burns in our Hearts Too

Muslim Woman's Tryst With Destiny

baba ek paise ka sawal hai
moutaj hoon
musalman hoon
badkismati ka yeh hal hai
zindagi bediyon se bandhi
jeena janjal hai
khuda ka khayal hai
alam behaal hai


sir give me a coin or two
my tears soaked in a
dry tissue
no hope no avenue
womanly woes
my residue
shadows that i pursue
to move away from
this heartless world
i wait in a queue

a woman is a woman
its true
a womans pain
in public view
scarred
through and through
whether muslim or hindu
its a mans world
where womanhood
they misconstrue
use abuse misuse
depraved destroyed
by a few
a fallen woman
nothing but a taboo
