Cup of Tea – A touching true story

A group of 15 soldiers led by a Major were on their way to the post in Himalayas (Pakistan) where they would be deployed for the next 3 months.
The batch who would be relieved waited anxiously. It was cold winter intermittent snowfall made the treacherous climb more difficult.

“If someone could offer a cup of tea”, the Major thought, knowing it was a futile wish.
They continued for an hour before they came across a dilapidated structure, which looked like a tea shop but locked. It was late in the night.
“No tea boys, bad luck”, said the Major. But he suggested all take some rest there as they have been walking for 3 hours.
“Sir, this is a tea shop and we can make tea… We will have to break the lock”, suggested one soldier.
The officer was in great dilemma to the unethical suggestion but the thought of a steaming cup of tea for the tired solders made him to give the permission.
They were in luck, the place had everything needed to make tea and, also, packets of biscuits.

The solders had tea biscuits and were ready for the remaining journey. The major thought, they had broken open lock and had tea biscuits without the permission of the owner. They’re not a band of thieves but disciplined soldiers. He took out a Rs1000/- note from his wallet, placed it on the counter, pressed under sugar container, so that the owner can see. The officer was now relieved of his guilt. He ordered to put the shutter down and proceed.

Three months passed, they continued to do gallantly in their works and were lucky not to lose anyone from the group in the intense insurgency situation. It was time for another team to replace them. Soon they were on their way back and stopped at the same tea shop which was open and owner was present in the shop.

The owner an old man with meager resources was very happy to greet 15 customers. All of them had tea and biscuits. They talked to the old man about his life and experience specially selling tea at such a remote place.
The old man had many stories to tell, replete with his faith in God.

“Oh, Baba, if God is there, why should He keep you in such poverty ?”, commented one of soldier.

The old man said “Do not say like that Sahib ! God is there, I got a proof . . . 3 months ago. I was going through very tough times because my only son had been severely beaten by terrorist who wanted some information from him which he did not have. I had closed my shop to take my son to hospital. Some medicines were to be purchased and I had no money. No one would give me loan for fear of the terrorists. There was no hope, Sahib. And that day Sahib, I prayed to God for help. And Sahib, God walked into my shop that day. When I returned to my shop, I found lock broken, I felt I was finished, I lost whatever little I had. But then I saw that God had left Rs 1000/- under the sugar pot. I can’t tell you Sahib what that money was worth that day. God exists Sahib. He does.”

The faith in his eyes were unflinching. 15 pairs of eyes met the eyes of the officer and read the order in his eyes clear and unambiguous, “Keep quiet”.

The officer got up and paid the bill. He hugged the old man and said, “Yes Baba, I know God does exist.
And yes, the tea was wonderful.”

The 15 pairs of eyes did not miss to notice the moisture building up in the eyes of their officer, a rare sight.

Woman of Pakistan in Guinness Book

The slogan of so-called Free world about veiled Muslim women of Pakistan has been bellied. They are working in all fields of life shoulder to shoulder with men in medical, engineering, administration, judiciary, army, air force, teaching, and what not. Some have left the US and Europe people wondering by fly commercial and fighter planes while they wear Hijab (they are veiled Muslim women).

Some female pilots are flying in PIA (Pakistan International Airlines), even as Captain. One can also see few females taking training in flying schools. But a female pilot’s biggest achievement, in my opinion, is flying fighter jets in Pakistan Air Force, just as their male counter parts do.

Being female pilots, they have been able to qualify and fulfill the most stringent requirements of a fighter pilot, that is, high ‘g’ maneuvers and other physically and emotionally stressful exercises like interceptions and dog fights etc.

Female fighter pilots have been able to break not only the sound barrier but the psychological barrier (in Pakistan) as well that flying fighter aircraft is the exclusive preserve of men.

On the top is Captain Pilot Shahnaz Laghari who is the World’s first Hijab wearing pilot. She can fly an aeroplane all by herself. Not only has this but she do it while fully covered in veil.

She is the only one in the World who has her name in The Guinness Book of World Record as the First Veiled Pilot. This shows that if one is determined, anything can be achieved and that also by staying within the boundaries of the religion.

This is not all but she is striving for the rights of women in Pakistan. She is serving the women of Pakistan by opening free education centers and sewing centers for poor women in Pakistan.

She participated in General Elections 2013 in Pakistan as an independent candidate from Lahore NA–122. The electoral symbol allotted to her was a cow.

This really is an enormous achievement for a lady as Pakistani culture is considered to be male dominant and it is said that women are highly discouraged to engage in many activities.

Listen !

NOTE:- Christians may, please, replace “Muslim” by “Christian” and “Holy Qur’aan” by “Holy Bible”.

Today, I address all those who are literate and think that they are Muslims. I have not used the word “educated” purposely.
Now, please do not make a futile effort to throw it back on to me because when you read it, “I” will become “you” and “you” will become “I”.

Have you applied, in practical life, what you learned at school / college / university where you studied ?
Or
Was that only for collecting testimonials (degrees) so that you can make money?

Being Muslim, you must have read Holy Qur’aan, did you understand what it says and did you apply it on yourself in your practical life ?

If, truthfully, your answer is:
No to the first question, you are not educated because you didn’t learn anything at school / college / university only memorized it.

No to the second question means you are Muslim only by name.

So, please, try to become an educated Muslim before you expect others to be so.

World propaganda machinery describes Muslims as uncivilized people and even call them terrorists.
In fact Muslims are more civilized and disciplined than all the other societies of the world.
Here is a glimpse of Friday prayer congregation in Masjid al Haram (Grand Mosque) in Makkah, Saudi Arabia on a Friday in the month of Ramadan (Fasting month) which this year is from June 06 to July 05.
makka-madina 2015 (14)

Three floors of Masjid al Haram and open area around Masjid al Haram are all jam-packed with about 3,000,000 people. They have come from all over the world. Their languages and cultures are different. They do not understand each other’s language but remember the teachings of Islam to make peace, be disciplined and helpful to others.
During their prayers five times a day in Masjid al Haram, they perform several Rukus (genuflections / bowings) and Sajdahs (prostrations) simultaneously with one voice “Allaho Akbar (God is Great) of Imam (Leader of Prayer)

A video showing fasting Muslim worshippers during Ramadan (fasting month), 2017 in Kaaba (The Grand Mosque) in Makkah.

During Ramadan, they eat and drink only after sunset and before sunrise for which they go out of the Masjid al Haram to hotels and restaurants around Masjid al Haram. They show best discipline even outside Masjid al Haram.
The administration of the city (Makkah) as well as staff of the hotels and restaurants also show best efficiency and discipline to control / provide food to such a big number of people within an hour.
