Where are you now?

“Faded”
(feat. Iselin Solheim)

You were the shadow to my light
Did you feel us?
Another star
You fade away
Afraid our aim is out of sight
Wanna see us
Alight

Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Was it all in my fantasy?
Where are you now?
Were you only imaginary?

Where are you now?
Atlantis
Under the sea
Under the sea
Where are you now?
Another dream
The monster’s running wild inside of me
I’m faded
I’m faded
So lost, I’m faded
I’m faded
So lost, I’m faded

These shallow waters never met what I needed
I’m letting go a deeper dive
Eternal silence of the sea. I’m breathing alive

Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Under the bright but faded lights
You’ve set my heart on fire
Where are you now?
Where are you now?

Where are you now?
Atlantis
Under the sea
Under the sea
Where are you now?
Another dream
The monster’s running wild inside of me
I’m faded
I’m faded
So lost, I’m faded
I’m faded
So lost, I’m faded

The Big Day!

Back in the days when I was a kid, a special day meant a day of happiness and joy. Then in adolescence, the big day  was pretty much everyday. Thereon, when I entered the practical scenario of life, a memorable day changed its meaning altogether. A day of some special occurrence which had some impact on my life in any possible way, was my special day.

And yes! today I have a special day. I’m am having multiple emotions simultaneously (the unasked for gift of maturity). Happy that its one of the days I prayed for to happen in my lifetime. Sad because I wasn’t able to change myself as I wanted to before this day came. For today is the last day I’ll be guided by memories of my mentor and from today on I have to let go of the them too.

But Allah always has better plans for everyone. I pray that I be mentored again towards good and I be able to mentor the people around me. May Allah guide me and every Human Being to live a life similar to the one my mentor is living. Guide me to follow the footsteps of the most beloved man on earth, His beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW). May this day be the next turn in everyone’s life towards a path leading me to Sirat Al-Mustaqeem.

The modest Eyes

I was awestruck. All this time I saw it except i didnt see it. Eyes, the most swift passage for the best and the worst of the world entering the heart.

There were no spectacles.. that’s it. Such love for the unseen. Such dedication to faith.

Harry Potter and the Transitions in Life

I stumbled upon Harry Potter Series again and as expected couldnt resist the temptation of watching them all again.

Some funny thing I noticed in there, I found The blood prince the best of the lot mainly because of the scene of mourning over Dumbledore’s body.

This very movie was the most shocking some years back and as I pondered I saw through transitions in my life directly affecting my taste.

Chamber of secrets was the most loved among initials but then it transitioned to Azkaban briefly. With the maturity of the series, my interests were grooming as I was the generation growing up with Potter.

It feels awkward and nostalgic looking back at the memory lane and seeing young Asad watching Chamber of Secrets as if the world will end if I moved an inch 😀

Grandparents

The most precious gift I have been bestowed with are my grandparents and their unmatchable love for me. I am their eldest grandson and have been like a sixth child to them as I have lived under their guardianship for 5years.

I am 23 1/2 today and they are in their 80s and still as I call them and say,”kia haal hain apkay?” They reply with the sweetest possible response, “teray hi haal main gum hain.”

My 19 cousins + 2 siblings often have reservations over the unparallel love and favours I recieve but have come to accept it as it is.

In my belief they are definetly the best thing ever happened to me and I cant thank Allah Almighty enough for such a beautiful blessing Alhamdulillah!

Without me

” I went on a Journey without me
There I found Joy, without me
The Moon that hid, could not see
Cheek to Cheek with me, without me
For the Beloved set my Soul free
I was Reborn without me
Without Spirit drunk are we
Always happy without me
Erase me from Memory
I remember, without me
Without me with Joy I plea
May I always be without me
Closed all Doors, I could not flee
Then I entered without me
His Heart enchained without me
By Shams’ cup, drunken me
His Cup never stay without me. “
