Maple Syrup

The only constant phenomenon in my life is “change”. I, being a perfectionist love doing new things in my life. You will find reflection of the same in my blog too. The blog Maple Leaf is about my observation on  changing dynamics of  Pakistan and world at large.

Happy Reading!

    سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك. [النسائي في عمل اليوم والليلة ص 173]
    Subhanakal-lahumma wabihamdika ashhadu an la ilaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa-atoobu ilayk.
    ‘How perfect You are O Allah, and I praise You, I bear witness that none has the rig…ht to be worshipped except You, I seek Your forgiveness and turn in repentance to You.’‬

    Assalamu Alaikkum Wa Rahmathullahi Wa Barakaathuhu..

    Obey the Holy Prophet and try to become his like
    To be a Muslim is not a child’s play.
    It requires complete submission in every thing to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
    Do not take it cursorily.
    It is a matter worth deep consideration.
    Do not feel complacent until you obey the Holy Prophet completely.
    If you call yourself a Muslim without doing so, you have only a shell without the kernel.
    A wise man will not be happy with a shell only nor on bearing an empty name.
    In old times a Muslim in name tried to convert a Jew to Islam.
    The latter chided him for rejoicing on outward from devoid of inner reality. He said,
    “What is there in a name?
    I named my son Khalid, after the name of the famous Muslim conqueror who lived long and won brilliant victories for Islam.
    But before it was evening I had to bury my child.”
    So do not be happy with mere names. Seek instead the inner reality.
    What a shame!
    You profess to follow the Holy Prophet,! the greatest of all Prophets, yet you live like kafirs.
    So live your life like the Holy Prophet and frame your mind like him.
    If you do not do so you are following Satan.
    It is easy to understand that the object of man’s life should be to become the beloved of God Almighty. Until a man becomes so, he has not succeeded in life.
    But this object is not attained until you obey the Holy Prophet truly.
    The Holy Prophet has shown by his conduct the real significance of Islam.So follow that Islam if you want to become the beloved of God.
    (Al-Hakam, January 24, 1901)

    This is just an ordinary bus that runs in Karachi, full of decoration and desi artwork. Its route no is prolly W-11.

    Do you still want it ?

    1. Tanzeel

      Thanks for coming here, its always good to see your comments on my posts. Yes these days I have been ‘busy’ somewhere — as soon I get time I will definitely come up with something new. Till then you keep exploring me… : )

  12. hi there…just strolled by this blog! its very interesting…and i love the header…i wonder how much the decorators get paid for a fabu job like that…probably not much but you give them justice (yea…i really like the header a lot lol)

    1. Tanzeel

      Thanks, yes its interesting and it really seems tough job for the decorators. I will keep shuffling the truck/ bus art pictures with more eye catching designs but for that you ll have to prove yourself a regular visitor of this blog : P

  13. Observer

    Seeing as you check this page far more regualrily i will ask you to give some attention to the article that you wrote about the Afia siddiqui case, “She got what she deserved”. There are many many factual errors in that article of yours. There is a very valid, thought out and well researched criticism on that article can you please atleast respond to that?

  14. O J DEEN


    Assalam-o-Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu,

    May our Suprem Almighty “Allah” bless you with all “His Riches” (Ameen).

  15. O J DEEN

    I wish you all a Bright,

    Happy and Prosperous New Hijri year – 1433 !!!

    May Allah make this new year more bright,

    prosperous and peacefull,

    for the worldwide MUSLIM UMMAH and for you all,

  18. Shujah Qureshi

    I found this blog immensely pleasing
    I will follow other stuff later, but by now saying for the record, “hall of shame ” made me join it. That was hilarious.
    I am sure when I will go through other sectors, I will feel the same.
    And accept best wishes…
