She Was A Street Photographer Much Before She Was Born



marziya shakir
5 year old
in the beginning
shot on the nikon
now a happy canon
user ..reborn
she does not
shoot golden glows
sunsets or dizzy dawns
it is beggars on the streets
desperate hungry forlorn
she does not shoot roses
only unborn thorns
street urchins know her
rich kids she scorns
the marathon football
ganesha festivals
durga pujas
bandras most famous
garbage porn
she shoots the same
things on and on
giving them a new
meaning a new hope
the bull by his horns

Working Mothers On The Street ..Weaving Hope In Defeat

Traditionally A Muslim Beggars Life Will Never Change



when she was born
she had her fate
written scripted
as pain in exchange
a cosmic vulnerable
fatality within
never changing
range ..charity
a few coins
wont emancipate
her freedom
her self respect
as a muslim woman
may sound strange
the sounds of the minaret
her soul from peace
brotherhood forcibly
estranged ..the jihad
to kill .. yes muslims
love killing muslims
a poetic thought
re arranged ...

Will Tomorrow Be Better Than Today


the present
to our lives
has made
irrevocable
dent .
nothing
changed
wherever
we went
was this
punishment
man made
or god sent
begging on
the streets
life spent
tomorrow
scares us
evermore
with its
unseen
content
it could
be worse
than today
the fear
of becoming
homeless
unpaid rent
mumbai slums
hope did god
or man invent
a bubble
of ill portent
as we ponder
in pain lament
lifes journey
downward
descent
grasping
in our palms
our destiny
a part a particle
a fragment

born to beg - muslim beggar mother

born to beg - muslim beggar mother by firoze shakir photographerno1


behind her 
churning 
slowly 
the cosmic 
wheel her 
miserable 
life as mother 
wife cannot 
heal,, she begs 
she wont steal 
two square meals 
wheels within wheels
as muslim beggar 
her sucked fate seals 
hidden behind the veil 
her pain to others 
she wont reveal 
what was born to 
hidden will always 
remain concealed 
tears as blood 

on her soul congeal 

Dargah Hazrat Abbas Lucknow

This is a monument of Faith , custodians of Faith , the Dargah Hazrat Abbas is the replica of his Shrine in Karbala...
A Hindu person went into the Dargah bowed , came out, outside are the Alam shops , he asked for a alam in gold to place on the Holy Shrine , the guy did not have one ready , he said he would give it to him the next day, the Hindu gentleman paid the entire amount, the Shia shop keeper of Alams was curious , he asked him has your prayer been answered, the Hindu replied it will be fulfilled the next morning hence I am placing the Alam..This a true incident..There are many tales , its about Faith .Faith is untouched by bigotry, or Sunnism or Shiasm or Hinduism..
Ask you shall recieve.. ask with your heart and not through your selfish soul.
For me this Hazrat Abbas 's Dargah is the first place I visited after I tied the knot to my wife 30 years back, than Asif Shakir my eldest son married a girl from Kazmain after the Nikkah we bought him and his wife at about 1 am at the locked gates of this Dargah to offer thanks..We got a wish, we got a daughter instead of a daughter in law, we bought her home, let her complete her graduation..this year she got a First class.
My eyes are dripping with thanks to this Holy Saint..he gave us more than his handful.. the only Shia Saint without Hands .. He gave his hands protecting the Mashke Sakina , bloodied waters of Euphrates, he was incidentally not battling the Kafirs, these were Namazis of Yazids army, who prayed 5 times a day, performed Haj fasted during Ramzan..Yes Islam changed ovenight in Karbala.. Barbarism home grown staple diet of the Arab bedouin..a hand for a hand an eye for an eye..
Islam spread because one Man who lives after Death protecting Allahs Bayt ..
Shah Ast Hussain..
So this is Dargah Hazrat Abbas..
On Athvi the caravan of Imam Hussain moves away from the frontiers of his beloved Hindustan, back to Karbala, but a little girl keeps turning her moist eyes back and forth, yes Little Sakina knows Chacha Abbas .. will remain behind answering prayers on behalf of his Moulah Akka Hussain..
Yes I cry I never needed a Mullah to remind me of my birhright bound to tears for Fatima..I do not need to dramaztize my pain, I do not need to be forced to cry.. I am a drop of a tear they call it heresy of my Faith..
Yes a Shia is one who comes from a Shia Mothers Womb..
You cant clone a Shia.. the only segment among Muslims..
You need to be born a Shia to convert to Islam..
