Every night I tell my children a new story…. This is one of them….
The main theme of telling these stories is to enhance their vocabulary and imagination… Hope you’ll like it.
(I may upload more in future)
I have started work on the following two topics :
1. Inflation in Pakistan and its solutions. As economics is my core subject … I have already started making the report.
2. Improvements in Police… How to Bring a Revolutionary change in our Police and convert them into an ideal force 🙂 (seems impossible doesn’t it ). I have made arrangements to go to a large number of Police stations in Sindh and collect first hand data and conduct thorough interviews with the police hierarchy…. Then I am planning to conduct a door to door survey from the public to find out if they are willing to support my plans (Have a plan to get 10,000 forms filled)… eventually I will submit this report to the Prime Minister… Chief Minister Sindh and IG Sindh… I will share this report here as well.
Jazakallah for your support and encouragements.
Thank you for your interest and support in the matter of Home Schooling… I have uploaded most of the material on net… some is still remaining but i thought that its better that i share whatever i have uploaded till today and mark my progress by naming the document as 1.0 … when I’ll update the document further I’ll will publish the next version i.e. 1.1 and 1.2 and so on.
let me explain how you can benefit from the document.
the document is in three levels…
initially there is an excel file that has tabs for subjects.
in each subject , first I have given an overall syllabus on yearly basis.
below that yearly syllabus i have shown examples that how did i distribute this yearly syllabus into monthly and weekly syllabus..
then there is a word file that contains the details of the things that i have developed, and am developing still, my self.
lets take an example on the use of the documents
In Urdu syllabus in the excel sheet you will see that children of early stage 1 are supposed to be told 5 stories …. in the lower part of that excel sheet you will see that in which month and which week will you be telling the story number 1… and then to find the story number 1 you may look into the detailed word document that contains the material that I have developed.
As you will see, I have associated age groups with stages… i.e. 2-3 year child is in early stage 1 . The syllabus of Stage 9 is somewhat equal to the class 8 of normal schools The pace that I have set is what I think is suitable for my children… you can set your own pace and change the number of days that your child needs to clear a level… You can start the early stage 1 at 3 years or even later if you wish to…
An other thing is that you can increase the pace of the subject that your child is picking up better so the child can cross over to stage 1 in english and may still be in early stage 1 in urdu.
I will be continuously updating the two documents … so every now and then you may check this post and see if there is a newer version available than the one that you have.
The Excel file that contains syllabus is here (Version 1.1)
The Word file that contains details is here. (Version 1.1)
I am open for any question or suggestions that you may have… Thank you once again for your support.
The summary of the report in Urdu is on the link at the bottom… but if possible read the whole report as it is more detailed and explaining
These are the various responses that I’ve been getting on Haq Wazeh Hai!.
An excellent and eye opening article I must say. Your pain and agony could only be understood by someone who has been through such an incident. Though it has rendered me speechless, however, I have conjured up the strength to write a few lines to you.
Where we are today, is only because of what we are today. As an individual I too, often tell my friends and relatives to handover whatever the bandit asks for in such a situation. The courage to stand up to these people as done by Bhai Abdul Ahad is a rarity nowadays and deserves recognition at the least. Individually and collectively as a nation, our subconscious has surrendered to whatever evil is going on around us and we feel satisfied at the fact “k kchalo maal gaya, jaan tou bachi” or “jaan ka sadqa maal hai”. You are 100 percent right in saying that time for our death has been fixed by Allah Almighty and it cannot be changed no matter what. But the fear of having been shot at, killed or wounded surpasses all thoughts and forces us to perform hideous acts of cowardice.
Though I am a qualified chartered accountant by profession and have had quite a few offers from abroad but have never accepted those because of one thought – all those people – the Mohajrins, people who have sacrificed their lives for creation of this homeland of ours, all those soldiers who have fought bravely and are doing so till today and all other innocent people who have laid their lives for this country and have fought valiantly, have they done all this for us to reap the benefits of a homeland and leave it for good when the time to return the favor has come. I find myself eternally indebted to all these people for their sacrifice and courage to leave this country and go elsewhere.
I strongly feel that this nation needs people like Bhai Abdul Ahad who have enough courage to stand up to evil and lay their lives if need be.
By reading your column, I have re-asserted the commitment to myself and to Allah Suhanawata’la that I will stand up to bad no matter what and will fight for good till the last drop of my blood come what may.
I sincerely hope and have prayed to the Almighty to grant people like you and me the strength and courage that a true Momin should have. Please rest assured that you are not alone in your struggle and I will always be here for your support in this path with all the strength I could muster as our nation and religion need people like you.
Let me conclude this email by quoting this heart warming para from a speech by Theodore Roosevelt;
“….It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
May Allah bless you and your family with the strength to cope with this loss, and may you brother receive the highest place in jannah!
Samuel Goldwyn – “I’m willing to admit that I may not always be right, but I am never wrong.”

We need these constructive efforts to regain our solidarity and honor as muslims and pakistanis. Allah hum sub ko naik hidayat or seedah raasta naseeb kare. Aameen.
Dear brother Farrukh,
Hope you will find this e-mail in the best of your health. I just read your article and could not help writing you. I really honor your feelings and salute to your martyr brother. Before a couple of years my young brother was also died in the same incident of mobile snatching… He was a student of BBA part I. anyways… May Allah bless us all and help you to succeed in your missions. amen.
I am with you. inshaAllah.
Very sorry to read about your brother’s death. May Allah bless him with the best in Heaven, and may he give sabr to you and all those who knew and loved him. Aameen.
This is all true, we are really facing the said problem in our personal life. It’s really time to think and rectify ourselves.
God bless all of us and gives strength to be on the right path – COME WHAT MAY !!!
Thank man for such a nice message.
Dear Mr. Farrukh Hassan!
First I’d like to show my condolences to you and your family for this valuable loss which is irrecoverable for life time.
But even more I have no doubt to say that, your brother was such a brave man and had visioned life for that he also shine him self in this sin full world and got his destiny achieved.
May Allah SubhanhuTalla, shower blessings and grant your brother better place in Heaven.
This is one of the eye opening moments of my life, in fact today i confess that I also think like those cowardly people once my mobile were snatched and I was at mercy of a lotter.
But today I commit my self to the way you chosen and would like to offer my services for movements and awareness programs you’d like to initiate.
I also think and it is really needed at these times that some of us should do something to get unite people together to make our lives meaning full.
Assalam u elaikum,
Its really very sad to hear about your brother, but one must be proud that we have still have this kind of great and brave person who can stand with Haq.
Apkay bhai ko Allah(SWT) Buland Darja Ata farmaye aur apnay khas bandon main shumar farmaye .. Ameen
Again I must say, your family must be proud of this Great Shaheed.
Baat tulkh hai laikin haqeeqat hai – Islam aur deen ka sahee faham utth chuka hai.
Allah aap ka hamee o nasir ho.

Dear Farrukh bhai…
mai ap k is jazbe ko Salam kartha hon.. or Inshaallah ap k is mission ka hisa banu ga. or ap k sath shana bshana kara rahon ga.

I am very saddened to read about the tragic accident of your brother. He is Inshallah in Jannah as a martyr and in a better place. I hope and pray that Allah SWT gives peace and strength to your family and especially your parents for this loss.
Such occurances of people being robbed at gunpoint are very common today and it is sad how we are helpless. Other than that the whole country is in the grip of terror these days and we can only hope and pray that the situation improves soon and we can see a day where there is law and order and peace and no young man has to lose his life at the hands of armed gangsters.
My Dear Farrukh,
Excellent, brother keep up this spirit, I am with you. Yes, I do raise my voice against any injustice wether done to me or to anyone else.
Reawakening, that is what we need. Our state is pathetic. Let there be light, and let there be torch bearers…..before it gets pitch dark.
May Allah bless you with more strength and courage (Amen).
I. A. Khan

I am realy impress & feel guilty as part of our society. We need to Build this courage motivation among us. Its the only way of our Survival. May Allah give us the Courge (ameen)
aoa abhi sham ko khbar suni k SAWAT k log wapas apnay gharon ko chalay gai ,dil itna khush tha k koi tu achi khaber PK se mutaliq suni ,lekin faraz tumhara mail dekh kar aur Farrukh k bhai k baray main parh kar samajh mai nahin aaya k mera us se kya rishta tha jo ………….alfaz hi nahin hain meray paas ,kis qader khush naseeb bacha hai ,aur walden bhi ,Allah (SWT)os ki is qurbani ko qbool karay aur……….waldain ko sabar aur dono jahanon mai surkhrooi ata farmai(Aameen) kindly say my regards to his mom
First accept my deepest condlonce for said incident.May Allah rest Abdul Ahad in Janet-ul-Firdos and bless him with his countless blessing.
Yes you have rightly mentioned that “every one has to go” and Ahad had choosed the right and daring path. What I beleive that one of the reson of this worst situation is our ignorence with the true Islamic knowledge. Most of us are muslim just we born in muslim society/ family we never tried to explore Islam as complete framework of life. We are limited to Ibadat only forgetting about Haqul-ul-Ibad.
I appreciate your inintiative. May Allah bless us the right path.

The lost of daring life is one of tragic event and it cant be replaced by any mobile phone or with life of a thief.
It is very sad that such courageous a soul died in the hands of law breakers as replacement of such people are very difficult and their bereaved family would never recover from such shock in remaining life .
So it is not happened in Karachi only but all metropolitan grand cities of the world comes in such low level of personal security due to unacceptable street crimes any time any day.
There the major difference between our side and other countries is response of law enforcing agencies and emergency medial services which are very prompt so citizens of such countries who can trust on their backup aids can think of wrangling these amateur culprit.
In our situation of lawlessness we should avoid such one to one fight as attacker is usually professional, aggressive and comparatively mentally alert in his actions which he is doing on daily basis as compare to victim who hardly faces and reacts to such counter situation once or twice in life time.
We should be careful and attentive to such assailants before coming to streets and tried to locate them with other watching techniques rather than responsive attacks which would ultimately bring irreparable loss in somebody’s life.

I don’t know whether I should pay my condolence to Mr. Farrukh on losing a brother like Abdul Ahad or pay homage to him because the world today needs people like his brother. In a world where everyone only thinks about himself and for the immediate associations, a man if cries on the wounds of others in the society then it has to be considered as a blessing. And the existence of people like Mr. Farrukh, who took the right inspiration from the incident, is a sign of a social reform.
It now all depends what wrong activities one identifies in the society and then what approach is followed to rectify the issues. These two things formulate an ideology. And then there is a war of ideologies. People struggling for the peace in the society destroy it themselves by fighting over the ideologies with other people. They forget that the fixing of the issue was a priority rather than the way one adapts to resolve it. Then not everyone identifies the root causes of the evils in the society. They normally visit the doctor again and again for the cure of the wounds in their feet instead of getting the nail out of their shoe. They normally try to fix the files infected by the virus instead of the virus itself. There may be cases where a thief was compelled to steal others because someone else had stolen something from him as well. Probably someone else had stolen his chappal from the mosque and he had to steal someone else’s to recover his lost.
Theft is the only sin. I remember some lines from a novel and would like to share it here.
“There is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft… When you kill a man, you steal a life. You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness….”
There are “thieves” everywhere in our society, some steal directly and some do not let you know what you handover to them from your life. Let’s identify those big fish, those gods in the society to understand the real meanings of “La-Ilaha-Ill-Allah” that there are no gods other than GOD and we do not surrender ourself to any other god other than GOD.

May ALLAH accept the Farrukh’s brother’s sacrifice and grant him jannah(ameen). Currently there are few non-political and revolutionary organisations which are working to implement Islamic constitution in pakistan.where they are lacking in is "Committed people".i think each one of us should have a look at them and join one of them which is most nearest to what he believes shall bring the change. there is also a hadees which says , a muslim who dies without a bait died in "nifaq". few organisation which i believe worth mentioning are . 1. tanzeem-e-islami(nonpolitical and islamic ,anyone can join) 2. brasstack(nonpolitical and islamic, usually educated class joins) 3. Tehreek-e-insaaf ( political and revolutionary but the target is to improve the system) 4. jamat-e-islami ( political and islamic , target is to improve the system). I Think , Everyone of us should work in our individual capacity to make the system as better as possible( like farrukh’s brother ). one way to do it is , to start doing your work as sincerely as possible . thanks Jamal.

Dear Farrukh Hassan, A very heart wrenching event. May God give you and your family the strength to bear this loss. It is very admirable of you and folks on this forum to discuss the tragedy of Abdul Ahad – by bringing it to light. This is the surest way of abating this societal ill. Here is a comment and a suggestion for those who enforce the law in Pakistan: While travelling by road from Turkey all the way to Pakistan, the one thing that I noticed was how easy-going things became as soon as I got to Pakistan. While Turkey and Iran looked like police-states, Pakistan was lax’ed, way too lax’ed. (which felt good because no one hassled you as much). But evidently this is an issue. As Pakistan recovers from addressing the extremism nuisance (in FATA/NWFP), the wish list would be to direct this pretty-well-skill security apparatus for internal law enforcement. Accountability for violating the law (especially for such heinous crimes) must be a given – and it should be fast – Atif

" So you misinterpret a book you believe in " (Dialogue by Leonardo Dicaprio in Body of Lies, 2008). We truly misinterpret the book, Quran. The guy in this article doing what kind of Jehaad which is mention by the Ayat in the end of the article. He was just a guy who thinks that he can change the world by himself ( I am choosing words very carefully so not to hurt any1’s feelings)
