Pastures On fire!

28th December, 2009. My uncle returns from Mumbai after attending the auspicious event of Ashara Mubaraka. Every one of us is anxiously waiting for his arrival, we too wanted to know about the blessings he had received and wanted to congratulate him. It was a time of sheer celebration for all of us.

Suddenly, someone puts on the TV, and there we see eye-opening stunning news live on the news channel. The headlines relayed “Bomb blast on MA Jinnah Road, 45 killed and many injured”. We grieved for the ones who had lost their families but we hear and see so many bomb blasts today in this atomic era that it didn’t matter much. 

Two hours later we saw on the news channels that the terrorists have started to burn the shops around (the same street where our shop is located). They used waxy chemical named Phosphorus, when this chemical mixes with air, it burn and produces fire. This chemical was stored in a 250ml glass bottle (which we use in soft drinks). The terrorists threw these bottles on the shop doors. The speed of burning shops had been very fast.

The shops were being ignited very furiously. My uncles decided to go to the shop and take out as much goods as possible. 

Me, my cousins and my aunts, all of us were at home, reciting prayers continuously and also updating our uncles about the conditions via phone.

In 15 minutes or so, THE PHONE RUNG… “trungtrungtrung”….. I heard on the phone

“The whole shop has been blasted; there are also no fire brigades around to help!”

One of my uncles was on the office’s first floor and the ground had already been destroyed. He had to jump on the cemented shelter of the opposite building which wasn’t burnt yet. 

Disturbed and scared all the family members had tears in their eyes. We had no power other than to pray for the safety of our uncles and the shop. An arzi was also sent in Hazrat Imamiyah about the current conditions.
Thankfully my uncles returned home safely from the outer ciaos. Because of the sudden shock one of them had also lost temporary consciousness. All of them were covered with sweat and eyes full of water. Their body was covered with the burning smell and their clothes were black.  Every one just chanted “Maula Maula” although our shop was destroyed and we may not have the strength but our faith didn’t alter for even a second. As we all know that whatever if truly believed is been granted. Maybe late but it is surely given!

We had the words of Maula TUS revolving in our minds which kept us working, that “AAG MA BAAG THASE”

My dear parents who were still in Mumbai did ziyarat and prayed for the family! Rozat-tahera was our only hope and we knew that some miracle would happen. AND..
20th November 2011, last year with the Dua Mubarak of our two Maula’s TUS, Syedna Muhammad Buhanuddin Aqa TUS and SyediWaMaulaya Mufaddal Bhaisaheb Saifuddin

HAZARI – IMPEX reopened at the same place and better than before.

    Amazing article! Definetely super moving.. it left an impression on my heart for a while after reading it. U described it so well.. with so much detail and life and chracter, it painted a picture and made me feel like i was in it!

    faith in the easiest time to lose it. But in the end.. everything turned out exactly
