By RAASHID UL NABI KHAN
I am truly blessed to have you in my life!! Through Today’s writeup I decided to write, out of the way a few words to my beloved better half, as a tribute to all the pious sisters who shape their Aakhirat by the dint of their will power to do wonders.
Things would not have been the same if you weren’t around. In all my ups and downs, good and bad times, you stood by me like a rock. You accepted me as an imperfect being, agreed I am a way more messy than I should have been. You are my answered prayer, my fulfilled wish, my realized dream. Alhamdulillah!
Thanks a lot for tolerating my senseless talks, throwing things everywhere, and forgetting a couple of things everytime I go for shopping. And, big thanks for cooking all the yummy dishes. Add to it, not just wife, you have been the best mother and a daughter-in-law. JazakAllah khair!
My wife helps me in Quranic recitation!! SubhanAllah!! She recite and read Quran fluently!! MashaAllah!! She had done graduation in Arabic as one of the subject!!
I have not read Arabic as a language!! I have transliteration/translation of Quran by Yusuf Ali, I have memorized various surahs (chapters) of Quran Alhamdullilah Suma Alhamdullilah!! I also know various verses of Quran which help me in Dawah most of the times, Alhamdullilah!!
I am lucky that my soulmate accepted me as a person. One who did not have a government job (which going by the current trends is the first criteria people look for).
She is better than me in every aspect! Though my writings has wide reach out still she is my counselor!! She advices me and drawing my attention towards great things in life! Life is beyond Government job!

I expressed my love and affection for my wife on Facebook and I received a beautiful comment as a feedback from Sister Lubna Sultan Durrani, she is a judge (Judicial Magistrate) by profession said and I quote her words!!
“Lucky woman! Brother Raashid Ul Nabi Khan You are a rare person who is writing such beautiful lines for your better half and that too on social media only the pious and God fearing men dare to appreciate and feel proud for their wives. Mostly men feel shameful and less of being a man if they feel or speak good about their wives, they feel as if they lost prestige if they talk or shower their love over their wife…even their family or people around them look down upon those men if they become vocal or expressive about their feelings towards their wife.
I truely feel respectful for you for expressing your feeling for our sister, it must be encouraging her to be her best and make her realise her full potential as a wife, mother and daughter in law.Happiness breeds efficiency in relationships.
God bless you both and protect your love from evil eye..!!!
Remeber us in your duas!”
