Peace be upon all, I'm Ghazala lari from lucknow, India. I'm Post Graduate in Geography, Business Administration and Information Technology. I've worked as a Assistant Lecturer and a Geography Teacher. I'm here to share my poems, stories, articles and write ups. Hobbies: writing, travelling, photography, calligraphy to name a few. I hope to explore a whole new world of wonderful thoughts and experiences here.
Under construction..... This isn't a poem. What little I have learnt from life, I'll share here with all my wol family. In years gone by I've only understood one thing. Life is never static. Death is static. Till there's movement, there'd be change. So enjoy these changes as they come in your life. After understanding the importance of this one precious life I've, I truly don't care about all the negatives. The controversies, negative comments etc. What others think, it's actually their perspective, they need to deal and live with it. As I have to live with mine. There's so much to be happy about. Every blessing is priceless. Each day is like a dream come true. When Allah is by our side then there's simply nothing that one can be bothered about. For I know he'll take care of everything. Life is about change. There'll be new people sent to you. As a blessing if you have faith. And they'll be moved to another time, another place and other people in time. Looking forward to my new chapter of life. Ground for which has been already prepared. All things that aren't required has been removed. Platter is completely empty to be refilled with plenty of new blessings. Challenges in life are thrilling. Breaking the ice is awesome. So here's for all the new events. I'm ready and fully prepared. The best version of myself with more scope for improvements for future blessings. I'm opening the new page of my new life. Love you Zindagi!!!!!💖
There're many chapters in my life's book Some are good, some are bad and many miraculous If I sit to share those chapters one by one It'll take a life time narrating all that happened To many it may sound unbelievable and untrue But those who've themselves faced storms in life Will definitely take these chapters of my life as nothing but the truth. It's a blessing to write poems In poetry much can be expressed In just few words, poignant and strong That is what I am looking forward to Vocal chords needn't do much exercise When the mighty poet's pen can do it otherwise
Last chapter first
I'm healed by Allah almighty Recovered from my brokenness That was a gift for my loyalties Now I'm stronger, much braver But not to serve other's purpose Rather God's purpose on earth Allah knows whats best for us Things that don't serve any purpose Become hindrances and obstacles A clear sign from almighty To move ahead, changing track Right people shall we find For the right purpose, right on time Never look back to those jokers Whose only act was to laugh at others But what difference would it make to them For a scorpion was made to spit poison You can't change the basic nature of a person By your acts of kindness and forgiveness A scorpion and snake have venom You can't fill them with divine potions They serve the purpose of Almighty So stop trying to seek good from such people Moving on in life with grace, cheerfulness and joy Towards the divine light thats guiding my path always I'm healed, happy and full of light I thank my Allah for blessing me with so many tests He has made me well yo serve His divine purpose Now He's aligning the right battalion for me Like a spiritual slave of God and his obedient leader I shall go ahead healing the world with His words As he gently holds my hand as I try walking again Blessing me with power and much divine strength I'm healed and that's how I really feel.
Seerat e mustaqeem
I've found my way It was here yesterday Its here today And tomorrow its there Its the path I'm treading Holding hands of my Almighty For he sure knows my way Better than I can know it anyway Beyond the hills and valleys Through the meandering streams Walking down the dungeons and the caves And many more places to see and cross Allah knows best whom he should send As a partner on my solemn journey Living a life of obedience and purity Fulfilling commands of The only Almighty The way is straight and easy No obstacles and hindrances I see Only a few tests lie ahead of me That for sure God will help me pass freely Will you be here or there Will they be here or there No one will continue permanently Still I ask thee God to send a partner eternal Allah please be with me always Keep guiding me through life's journey Its not an easy way to make Unless I have you with me always
I am affirmations
I'm the power I'm the strength I'm the might I'm the hero I'm the knight I'm the light I'm the soul I'm the body I'm the mind I'm the wind I'm the storm I'm the calm I'm the star I'm the sun I'm the moon I'm the life I'm the death I'm the afterlife I'm the friend I'm the lover I'm the soulmate I'm the dear one I'm the chosen servant I'm the loyal one I'm the brightness I'm the glamor I'm the dream I'm the miracle I'm the magic I'm the beam I'm the success I'm the valiant I'm the fragile I'm the mercy I'm the compassion I'm the healing I'm everything I think I'm every one I'm becoming I'm in love with my feelings
Bless me with love Bless me with noor Bless me with everything Bless me with goodness Bless me with mercy Bless me everything that's halal Bless me perfection Bless me mercy and compassion Bless me things that attracts satisfaction Bless me lots of everything good Bless my character and mindset Bless me with soulmates as friends and lover Let the blessings flow From heaven above To where I'm placed on earth
I'm a relentless seeker of truth I drank words from many books Experiences of wise sages too And then analyzed it all for good I'm a seeker of love and friendship I gave my all to receive the same The deserving one stays never to leave Only awaiting Allah's permission to leave I'm a seeker of loyalty and honesty Without these there's no relations to keep So I invest mine in every heart I meet And received the same from a dear one gently I'm a seeker of knowledge and enlightenment Though I don't sit under a tree to set my mind free Little conversations with God over prayer mat is enough for me As all good comes from Allah and he gives me freely I'm a seeker of birds like me Who are fearful of God almighty And pray to Him for everything they need With such I enjoy life in peace and harmony I'm a seeker of purity and truth Which I have found in abundance Amongst innocent children and many like them And have prayed yo receive the same for me I'm the seeker of true relationships Superficial ones don't attract me at all Deeper connections and bond are unbreakable So I try building these and keep those who are helping me build it I'm a seeker and will always be one Something or the other attracts me often So I search for these regularly And attain them through my Rabb's mercy
My only hero
I need no hero to save me For no one has powers To change my destiny And no one has the strength That Allah has kept for himself So my Rabb is enough for me He is my Hero who is changing my destiny Placing things as they are supposed to be And He loves me more than any human being So I need no human hero to help me When my Allah is the only one who can actually help All others are as weak as me, powerless, fearful Its only the almighty who can heal, help, save and bless I've my Rabb as my hero My savior My redeemer My everything And your everything You are as helpless and clueless as me You even depend upon my hero for everything Then why should I hold a weak hand When I have the strongest ONE Who loves me unconditionally Provides me immeasurably And cares for me tirelessly Allah is my hero in life, in death and in after life Do I need say anything more

Quotes by Ghazala lari
1. My wounds and scars are my trophies that shines glorifying my patience and victory. 2. Don't look for me in my past for I live in my optimistic world. 3. I'm not the scars that you see rather I'm the healing that healed me. 4. Why do you wish to define me according to what you perceive when you wear spectacles that don't fit you perfectly. 5. Wisdom is the jewel that beautifies a pure heart. 6. Deaf, dumb and blind soul follows its own crippled guidance. 7. Knowledge is the light that shines upon the path of an enlightened soul. 8. Half of knowledge lies in accepting the fact that you don't know certain things and then making efforts to attain that knowledge. 9. More than forgiveness, it's forgetting the cruel words of your haters that keeps you happily going on in life. 10. I'm not what you think me to be. I'm what I think I am. 11. Intelligent people make no efforts to prove their intelligence to others because others opinion makes no difference to their intelligence.

You have an incredibly interesting CV - I miss not having travelled to India in earlier times when following a maritime occupation, although I have seen much of the world both from a ship and later via the air.
Some say Kipling isn't as welcome in India as in my own country but he helped shape my imagination and pathways into writing poetry nevertheless.
If the OHM you refer to is the vibrational level of meditation practiced by Theosophists (Blavatski) and other thinkers - that is something I try getting my kids to engage upon during stressful times.
Thank you for visiting WOL like you do, and for being the breath of fresh air that indeed you are.
