Masoom Ali Bawa The Greatest Rafaee ..

Masoom Ali Bawa The Greatest Rafaee .., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

Masoom Ali Bawa carries the Standard from Kalliar Sharif Hardwar along with the other Rafaees on foot , they reach Delhi and from Nizam Uddin Ailias Holy Shrine they walk to Ajmer Sharif thus begins the Urus Of Khwajah Garin Nawaz.

Masoom Ali Bawa is from Mumbai and I have known him for many years now ..he is one of the greatest exponent of body piercing Zarb.. with the sword and other instruments of pain..
Highly respected by the Rafaees he is part of the Dam Madar Malangs of Makanpur.

He is very fond of Marc De Clercq who has walked with them from Delhi on foot till Ajmer a documentation I have never done ,,, both Marc and I shot the Urus of Zinda Madar Shah Makanpur this year .

Shooting Rafaee Malang faces is shooting the inner contours of their soul.. reflected as lines wrinkles on their visage.

Eid al-Adha, (Arabic: عيد الأضحى‎) is celebrated on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the 12th month of Islamic calendar.
On both the occasions this special prayer is usually offered in Eidgah, a place in the outskirts of the city dedicated for Salat al-Eid.

Different scholars interpret the importance of this Salah (prayer) differently. Salat al-Eid is Wajib according to Hanafi scholars, Sunnah al-Mu'kkadah according to Maliki and Shaf'i jurisprudence, and Fard according to Hanbali scholars. Some scholar…

back to square
no pun intended
but charity piety
will go elsewhere
generous patrons
now a trickle
no love and care
the blind the cripple
the deformed empty
space they stare
no iftar leftovers
no sairi left overs
a thought that scares

kareyenge .. kal asha ki
jyot jalayenge .. jab ham
sab milkar eid manayenge

Jai Kali Kalkatte wali tera wachan na jaye khali..

Bahut Jald Dil Ke Screen Par Apke Pados Main Arahe Hain.. Bappa Morya ..

specially
those that
will be begging
on the streets
despite the
muezzins call
pain despair
the only life
saving virtues
on their wall
unlike the rich
fat muslims
blowing away
their fortune
in the malls
the poor needy
will be begging
outside food
stalls ..the
untouchables
of our muslim
social order
right of admission
reserved in prayer halls
