“The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible” – Oscar Wilde

Sari duniya ke liye gham ki fiza aam kare Kya khabar tum na raho Kyakhabar ham na rahe Ao ek kaam kare, karbala aam kare

Aao ek kaam kare (Ay mere desh-e ke logo meri awaaz suno. Meri awaaz-e me maktal ka ye aghaaz suno) x2 (Kya khabar tum na raho) x2 Kya khabar ham na rahe (Ao ek kaam kare, karbala aam kare) x2 Jis tarha saniye zehra ne ise kaam kiya. Ik-e zanjir-e ki jankar ne wo kaam kiya. Jis tarha shohada ne safar-e sham kiya. Yani nezo se bulandor bhi islam kiya. Ham isi tarz-e kayadat ki ada aam kare. (Kya khabar tum na raho) x2 Kya khabar ham na rahe(Ao ek kaam kare, karbala aam kare) x2 Ye jo majlis he madawa hay har ik-e gham ke liye. ek sawghat he ye didaye purnam ke liye. Soze dil chariya teziz-e muharram ke liye. Koyi tafreeq-e nahi haq ka ye matam ke liye. Rone walo ke liye farsh-e aza aam kare (Kya khabar tum na raho) x2 Kya khabar ham na rahe(Ao ek kaam kare, karbala aam kare) x2 Ao dekho ke ye khayma ye alam kiska hai. K…

Life is a maze..a slithering moment you cant embrace ..a mask hides a devious face

Maksade Hussain

Maksade Hussain, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. on my bleeding third eye
the emulsion creating an image
shot of pain in pain for pain
no greater pain than hussain
ashura and karbala
heart and soul
of a cosmic brain
a karmic path of humanity
that a single thought engrain
allah ho akbar our blood
that we willingly drain
we live as shias die as shias
after death shia remain
no cybernetic power
or kinetic energy
greater than maksade hussain

Oops Fuck Taqqaiya

we dont have to hide
behind a mask
to say we are shias
followers of truth justice
humanity we are
a little different
from the rest of
the miyas specially
those dont offer fatiah
dont offer niyaz

Aman Means Peace Hope Humanity ..

Aman Means Peace Hope Humanity .., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
he has now become an ocean
one with god and divinity
away from the bustling crowds
the chaos the insanity
a world where man kills
man hate and insecurity
he wont feed the poor
clothe the poor but gives
gods benami property
gold necklace diamond
studded shawls as
pretentious charity
aman left all this
his loved ones
friends as a lesson
of true love peace
hope humanity

om shanti om
rest in peace
free forever free

Prof BW Jatkar Taught Me The Essence of Street Photography as Fine Art

Prof BW Jatkar Taught Me The Essence of Street Photography as Fine Art, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

Prof BW Jatkar a night before the Dahi Handi would call me to bring my shop help at Dadar Ranade road , the shop help was young Khwajah who came to learn English at my shop , his father was my painter ..Khwajah would carry Prof Jatkars camera bag.. and invariably I would get lost and than finally fetch Kwajah from Mr Jatkars house .

He would come by jeep to Alibagh to shoot the bullock cart races and I came by boat but this giant of a man taught me a lot, shooting seagulls at Bhaucha Dhakka , Haji Ali , and he taught me processing printing and was the person to introduce me to my next Guru Mr KG Maheshwari.

For many years all three of us sent our prints to the various Salon and this added to my learning.

I gave him the golf caps he wore and would stitch his safari as a token of all he taught me as he did not take money from me at all.

He was very fond of my family …

Shah Ast Hussain Badshah Ast Hussain

Shah Ast Hussain Badshah Ast Hussain, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. within the layers
of our blood
lies the history
of our pain
a single chant
on the sands
of karbala
ya hussain
ya hussain
even after
our death
through
our unborn
children
will remain
1400 year
protest against
jehaddi terrorism
yazidiyat
a poison
against islam
it does contain
love of ahle bayt
we retain
he gave his head
but not his hand
to yazid
was not in vain
shah ast hussain
badshah ast hussain
our spiritual campaign
hussain is humanity
simple and plain
