Squadron leader Muhammad Iqbal is a retired Air Force officer. He is 73 years old but emotionally not over 30. The children are older and are living a contented life. His wife has passed away. He misses her very much. Hundreds of jokes are remembered. Wherever they stand, laughter starts echoing in a few minutes. They were the liveliest members of our group. Iqbal Sahib arrived at the airport with laughter and kept laughing and laughing till his return. This is after Ata-ul-Haq Qasmi Sahib They are the happiest elders of my life.
I am sure that like Qasmi Sahib, Iqbal Sahib will also get angry over the title of seniority because both of them did not let their age go above 30 years and they will not let it go either. I decided after meeting Iqbal Sahib. My old age will not be as boring as at least my youth. If I could not become Ata-ul-Haq Qasmi, I will definitely become Muhammad Iqbal, the Squadron Leader. I met Iqbal Sahib and remembered my old philosophy again. 'Hearts are interesting or boring and we need people who are interesting in life' Man leaves bored religion and boredom to God 'We are still human beings and people are not like and dislike' These are just different ۔ We had two judges with us. Justice Younis Chaudhry is a great man. He is happy and satisfied all the time. Whenever we wanted to scare the Turks, we would pass them by. The people of Turkey are not afraid either. Justice Sahib has done this service for us in Egypt before. If we introduced him, the closed doors would open and even the Egyptian government would take us to Cairo to the real Pharaoh. He was accompanied by an Additional Sessions Judge this time. He was a seemingly silent man but there was a mischief floating in his eyes all the time. He was stormy when he laughed. Our ship It seemed to shake regularly.
Mumtaz Sahib and his wife were also with us. This is a unique family. Mumtaz Sahib is running a brand of local food called Refreshment Center in Rawalpindi. It is not wonderful to run a brand. Thousands of people in Pakistan do this but they The real beauty of is his wife, she is very religious, she wears a veil, but our sister started sitting in a restaurant despite the veil, and today the whole business is in her hands, she has grandchildren, but from shopping for a restaurant. They deal with everything from tax to sale.
They also stand at the counter and it is not a small restaurant. It has two and a half hundred people working on it and it is famous all over Rawalpindi and Islamabad. People shop in regular lines. There are role models for them. They have proved that low education and veil cannot be an obstacle in your way. If a person wants to work or develop, no power in the world can stop him. Mumtaz Sahib said about his parents. There were tears in everyone's eyes.
The father was a memorizer of the Qur'an. He used to come to the shop while reciting the Qur'an and read the Qur'an all day along with work. The mother used to make samosas for her son and Mumtaz Sahib used to stand at the shop and sell them. There is an amazing story: Mumtaz Sahib and his wife still do not know Urdu. They both speak Punjabi fluently and are proud of their work. This family is in no way inferior to the Bill Gates or Walton family. It is easy to progress but it is very difficult to do business in Pakistani society behind the scenes and reciting the Quran and these people are the most successful travelers on this difficult path. They are the real assets of Pakistan.
We also had Abdul Waheed and his family from Haripur. Waheed Sahib started with Rs. 78 and today he owns six big stores. Two and a half hundred people work with him. His hard life and story They all cried once. They were trapped once in a lifetime and fell from the throne to the floor. Only Allah brought them out of this difficult time. They prayed day and night or the Almighty helped me. And guide them and every time a voice came from inside them, you build a department store and their angels did not even know what it was, but on the day they started working, the grace of Allah started.
Waheed Sahib surprised everyone by telling us that we also take back the purchased and used goods. He said that you get written on every shop that the purchased goods will not be returned. Only our stores have We asked them, "What do you do with the goods?" They said, "We take them home and use them ourselves, but give the customer something fresh." Or return the money. Maybe Allah likes our payment, so we are doubling day and quadrupling night. ”
We also had two young siblings from Karachi. They would be eighteen or nineteen years old. The brother would sit in front of every mosque, tie the laces of his sister's shoes and feed her with his own hands. What are the people and where did they come from? A woman from Karachi was traveling alone with us. Her life was difficult. She is a ten year old girl and she is a "single parent" but the difficulties could not put out the fire of being human inside her. Are standing in front of
Adeel Riaz was with us once again with his father Riaz Sahib. This time his eight-year-old son was also with us. When this child used to put shoes on his grandfather with his own hands, everyone looked at him with envy. I have told you the story of Riaz Sahib. He used to work as a laborer. He lost his arm in a road accident but he continued to work with one hand. Adeel Riaz is the eldest son. After matriculation, he started rubbing the floor. Diya then started cleaning and T-boy work in an office. He is a sensible and intelligent man. He started his work and then nature tore down all the roofs.
They do only one thing now, they make money and keep their father happy. When I started building wooden houses in Murree, they bought the best and most expensive house. Why? Because his father liked it. These people are also my neighbors now and they thank me every day but every time I see them my heart goes out and I wish I could be like Adeel Sahib. He can serve his father. We are not just people, we are real people, these are the real Pakistan, these people have come from the lower middle class to the middle class after the terrible struggle and now they want to see and learn the world.
Most of the people in our group do not want to share their room with anyone on the first day. They do not mix with each other. We force them to stay with other people and the next day these people have become family and laughed. They are listening to verses and songs and dancing. It is amazing how they take care of each other. When we leave Pakistan, we are Pakistanis. 'Angry' upset and suspicious but when we come back we are human.
Happy, sincere and compassionate, human beings are the cure for every disease in the world. Maybe that is why we need nurses and doctors in the world of disease. Otherwise, machines and computers can do the treatment, but we do not get emotional support from them. We run towards human beings. The farther we humans go from other human beings, the more depressed, frustrated and sick we become, and the more we interact with other human beings, the healthier, happier and calmer we become. And in group tours, people meet human beings, so their lives change.
As the Dalai Lama put it, "Man must be good to himself the most." The better we are with ourselves, the better we are with others. I tell people in my sessions that if you If you are not happy, satisfied, good and happy, then you cannot make others happy, satisfied and happy. Emotions are inside a person. If you are empty inside, what will you give to others? So let's be good with ourselves first and we learn this from our every tour.
So be kind to Yourself!
