    sahi kah, jis ney kurbani di hoti hay aur jis ki aankh sey ansu nikla hota hay, sirf wohi us takleef ko jaan sakta hay. kehtain hain na k jis ka dard hota hay bas usey ka hota hay. Doosra koe us dard ko tab tak FEEL nahi ker sakta jab tak us ki apni ankh sey ansu na niklay

    aur ager hum wo dard, wo ansu aur wo takleef jaan saktey tu hum apney mulk k sath sincere hotain. aj sirf hamarey khukmaran hi galat nahi, log bhi galat hain

    Allah ney farmaya hay "k jis tarah ki awam ho gi waisa hi un pa khukmaran nafiz kiya jaye ga"
