A mothers love

A Mothers' Love
by Zafar Shakur

As my friend and I were walking along the path to my grandmother's house, we suddenly heard a strange cry. Though we tried to investigate, it was impossible in this thick Zairean jungle.

Surprised and puzzled, we continued on our way. After an hour, we saw Granny's bungalow, which was surrounded by a beautiful garden and several fountains.

After knocking, we were let in by my grandmother, who seemed to be very much disturbed. Naturally, my first question to her was whether she was alright and the answer given by her was a great shock to us. A gorilla had taken away Lona, her granddaughter and my cousin, when she was playing in the garden.

Though we were upset ourselves, we tried to calm her.

At dinner, she seemed to be a bit stable and though the food looked very delicious, no one could feel the taste and everyone seemed to have lost appetite.

Early next morning we heard rumbling sounds of trucks at a distance and my grandmother told us that those were her lumberjacks who were on their way to the jungle and that they all had their living quarters behind her bungalow.

Though the authorities were informed of the incident and the game wardens were combing the dense forest, my friend and I left the bungalow after breakfast just to see what we could do to help. As we were passing through the rows of living quarters, we heard a strange cry. We bought thought that it must be Lona and rushed to the quarter from where the cry seemed to come. We peeped through an open window which had iron bars. To our surprise and dissapointment, we saw a weldmash cage inside the room and a small gorilla baby caged inside.

My friend could not udnerstand why I was engulfed in deep thoughts and he was even more surprised when I asked him to stay where he was. iw as almos ton ym fours, searching ther ground under the window and gave a cry of joy when I saw a huge paw mark of a gorilla on the soft soil.

I caught my friend's hand and pulled him to my granny's who was as much surprised and annoyed to know that one fo her employees had captured and caged a gorilla baby. The employee was summoned and said that he felt pity when he saw a small gorila baby lonely in the jungle and brought it home.

Neither my friend nor granny could understand why I requested to the employee to allow me to sleep in the room where the gorilla baby was kept.

I was resting in an easy chair kept in the corner of the room and kept the electric light on. Teh gorilla baby seemed to be restless but got used to it.

Just after midnight when the place was very quiet, I heard a sound of breaking twigs and then a faint grunt, as a figure loomed at the window. i slowly got up fromt he chair and walked towards the cage. The mother gorilla at the window got furious and seemed to pull down the window by pulling its bars with all her force. I slowly unbolted the cage and stretched my arms and the baby gorilla jumped onto my arm. I took it out and went towards the window. The mother gorilla seemed to understand me and stood still. As the bars were a good distant apart, I passed the baby through them and the bay jumped to his mother who embraced him almost like a human. The mother gorilla looked at me for a while as if thanking me and hurriedly walked away.

I decided not to leave the room and rested on the chair. Before sunsrise, I heard the grunt of the gorilla at the window. I jumped from the chair and ran towards the window. And lo! There she was with Lona nicely cuddled in her arms. She slowly let Lona on the ground and taking two steps backward disappeared into the darkness.

splendid story zafar!!!it seems animals also care alot about their young too....jus like our parents care for us...it is therefore very wrong to take a baby animal however small it may be....bcoz u never know if its family is worried about it or not!!! :D

Maa'N ( a poetry on mother!!!)

Postby sahmed.jawad » 25 Dec 2011, 22:59

maut ki aagosh mein jab thak key soo jattiii hain maa
tab kahii jaakar sukoon thora sa paa jaati hain maaaa

fikar mein bachoo ki kuch istarah ghul jaati hain maa
no jawan hotey howey bhorii nazar aati hain maaa

eik hi hasraat ko apney azm-o-istaqlal sey
aansoo sey gusl dekar kudh hi dafnaati hain maa

aurhtii hain gurbatoo kaa khud yeh boseeda kafan
chahatoo ka perahan bachey ko pehnaatii hain maa

bhooka rehnay hi nahi deti yateemoo ko kabhi
jaaney kis kis sey kahan sey maang kar laati hain maa

rooh key rishtey ki yeh gheraiyan tou dekhayey
chot lagtii hain hamarey aur chilaatii hain maaa

kab zarorat hoon meray bachey ko itnaa soch kar
jaagti rehtii aaankhen aur soooo jaati hain maaa

haadyoon ka ras pila kar apney dil key chain koo
kitnii raatey mein tou khalii paet sojaati hain maaa

jaaney kitnii barf si raatoo mein aisaa bhi howa
bacha tou chatii pey hain gelay mein sojatii hain maa

jab khiloney ko machaltaa hain koi gurbat ka phool
aaansoo key saaz par bachey ko behlatii hain maaa

fikar mein shamshan key aakhir chatanoo ki tarah
jaisay sookhii lakriaa istraha jaal jaati hain maaa

apnii aanchal sey gulabii aansoo ko poonch kar
deir tak gurbat pey apnii askh barsatii hain maa

samney bachoo key khush rehtii hain har ek haal mein
raat ko chup chup kay lekin askh barsatii hain maaa

pehley bachoo ko khilaatii hain sukoon-o-chain sey
baad mein jo kuch bacha who shauq sey kahti hain maa

Mangtiii bhi nahi apney liyey allah sey
Apney bachoo key liyey daman ko phelatii hain maa

Janey anjaney mein hojayey jo bachey sey kasoor
Eik anjaani saza key dukh sey tarhaaati hain maa

Har ibadat har mohabbat mein nihah hain eik garz
Be garz be losss har khidmat ko kar jaati hain maa

Apney bachoo ki baharey zindagi key wastey
Aansooo key phoool har mosaaam mein barsatii hain maa

Bazooo mein kich key aaajaye gi kaisay qainat
Apney bachey key liyey bahoon ko pehlaatii hain maaa

Eik eik hamley sey bachey ko bachaney key liyey
Dhaaal bantii hain kabhi talwar ban jaati hain maaa

Pheley dil ko saaf karkey khoob apney khoon sey
Dharkanoo par kalmae-tauheed likh jaati hain maaa

Safha-e-hastii pey likhtii hain who usool-e-zindagi
Isi lyey ek maqtab-e-islam kehlatii hain maaa

Usney duniyaa ko diyey masoom rehbar islyey
Azmatoh mein saani-e-quran kehlatii hain maa

Jab perashanii mein ghir jaatey hain hum pardes mein
Aaansoo ko poochney khawaboo mein aajatii hain maa

Aisa lagta hain key jaisa aagaye firdoos mein
Daal kar bahey galey mein sar ko sehlatii hain maa

Agaya gar waqt muskhill apney dil key chain par
Qabr mein hotey howey bhi ashq barsatii hain maa

Baad mar jaaney key phir betay ki khidmat key liyey
Bhes betii ka badal kar ghar mein aaajati hain maaa

Door hojatii hain sari umr ki us dam thakan
Bihah karkey betay kaa jab ghar bahoo lati hain maa

Dekh letay hain nazar jis waqt betay aur bahoo
Ajnabi apney hi ghar mein haayey ban jaati hain maa

Allah allah bhool kar eik eik satam ko raat mein
Pootii pootey sey shikastaaa dil ko behlatii hain maa

Beta kitnaa hi bura hoon par padosan key huzoor
Rok kar jazbaat ko betay key gun gaati hain maa

Shadiyaan karkey jo bachey jaa basey pardes mein
Khat sey ya tasweer sey phir dil ko behlatiii hain maa

Apney seenay par rakhey hain qainat-e-zindaqiii
Yeh zameen is wastey hain dost kehlatii hain maa

Zindagani key safar mein gardishoo ki dhooob mein
Jaab koi saaya nahi miltaa tou yaad aaatii hain maa

Muflisi Bachey ki zid par jab utha letii hain haath
Jaisay mujrum ho koi istrhah sharmatii hain maa

Lot kar wapis safar sey jab bhi ghar aatey hain hum
Daal kar bhahey galey mein sar ko sehlatii hain maa

Dair hojatii hain ghar mein aaney mein aksar jab hamey
Rait par machlii ho jaisay aisay ghabratii hain maa

Mart-e-dam asaka bacha naa ghar par deir sey
Apni donoo kutliyay chokhat par rakh jaati hain maa

Apni pehloo mein lita kar aur totey ki tarah
Eik , bara paanch chodaa hum ko sikhlaati hain maa

Paar kehtey hain kissey aur mamta kia cheez hain
Koi un bachoo sey poochey jin mar jaati hain maa

Saaal bhar mein , ya kabhi , haftey mein jumaraat ko
Zindagi bhar ka silaa eik fatiha paa ti hain maaa

Martaba hoo maa ka zahir kis liyey firdoos sey
Apney bachoo key liyey poshaq mangwatii hain maa

Ghar sey jab pardes jaata hain koi noor-e-nazar
Hath mein quran lekar dar pey aajatii hain maa

Dekey bachey ko zamanat mein reza-e-paak ki
peechay peechay sur jukhayey door tak jaati hain maa

kaaptiii awaaz sey kehtii hain betaa alwidaaa
samnaa jab tak rahey hathooo ko lehratii hain maa

yaad aataa hain shab-e-aashoor ka karyal jawan
jab kabhii uljhiii howi zulfoo ko suljhatii hain maa

sub sey pehlay jaaan dena fatima(a.s) key laal par
raat bhar aun-o-mohamed ko yeh samjhatii hain maa

allah allah intehah dekh sabr-e- laila aur husain (a.s)
baap ney khainchii sina , seeney ko sehlatii hain maa

yeh bata saktii hain humko bus rubab(a.s)-e-khasta tan
kis tarah bin doodh key bachay ko behlaati hain maaa

shimr key kanjar sey yaa sookhey galey sey poochiyey
maa idhar sey nikaltaa hain udhar aaati hain maaa

jab talak hain yeh hath hain hamsheer be parda na hoon
eik madar bawafa betay sey farmatii hain maaa

aisa lagta hain kissi maqtal sey ab bhi waqt-e-asr
ek buridaa sar sey zyada pyasaaa hoon sada aati hain maa

no jawan beta agar dam tor dein aagosh mein
zindaqii bhar sur ko diwaroo sey takraatii hain maa

lash par betay key parhtii hain jawanii marsiaaa
shukr ka sajda us aalim mein baja laati hain maa

dei kar apney laal ko islam ki aaagosh mein
good khalii phir so-e-jaanat palat jaati hain maa

fatima(a.s) key laal par qurbaaan karney key liyey
baandh kar sehra jawan betay ko samjhatii hain maa

apney gam ko bhool kar rotey hain jo shabbir(a.s) ko
unkey askhoo key liyey jaanat sey aajatii hain maaa

QADAR MAA BAAP KI AGAR KOI JAAN LE
APNI JANNAT KO DUNIYA MAIN PEHCHAN LE...

Aur Leta Rahe Woh Jo Baddon Ki Dua
Osi Ke Dono Jahan, Uska Ka Haami KHUDA...

Yaad Rakhna Tu apne Hamdard dost Ki Is Baat Ko
Bhool Na Jana REHMAT KI BARSAT Ko...

Mother is Your world...
Maa'n ki Aghosh mein jo Jaam piya hai maine
Lab hilay to ALI (a.s) ka naam liya hai maine

Mili Quwat e jumbish jo mere Hatho'n ko
Goad mein hi Matam e Shabbir (a.s) kiya hai maine
