About me…

It is a Sufi Proverb that,

“I searched for God and found only myself. I searched for myself and found only God”..

It’s a fact that people go for making judgments about your personality just by looking at you, and seeing how you act around different people.. However, according to my angle of thought, our personality isn’t merely one-sided but it consists of many aspects which are situations dependent. Hence situations are the ones which defines one’s personality; dealing properly with different situations can even make us matured at a very little age.. I, fortunately or unfortunately, am one of such cases.

I opened my tiny eyes in this large world on January 1, 1991.  It took seventeen eighteen nineteen twenty twenty-one twenty-two twenty-three years to create who I am today.. Within these years, I have been given the freedom to explore the world in order to satisfy my curiosity towards all the strange and wonderful things in the world around me.

I grew up in a healthy family. With an elder brother, I spent my childhood and early years. My parents both had stable careers and this provided us with more opportunities to learn what we desired to..

My childhood wasn’t really a catchy and a colorful one. Despite being the first girl in both paternal and maternal families, I had always been an isolated kid with lack of interest in all what used to please other children. That made me search out my interest, and at the age of six,I ended with books.

So here was I, a bookish child. Spent most exciting years of my life in company of books . But with passage of time, my interests started widening and here I am now, with interest in more or less every field..  From art and literature to sports, from collections to entertainment, from innocent stories to scientific logics.. My interest is no more a ‘bounded’ one.. I am more willing to ‘accept’ life in its all forms..

All my life, I always tend to be a student.. Whether as student of engineering, project management or life, I always am willing to learn lessons and apply them in journey of my breaths. My Allah and my family comes at FIRST for me in this whole universe. Responsibilities associated with them lie on top of my priority list.. Among my self-made relations, there are a few loved ones of mine,who are more of my guiders and mentors.. And I value them with all my heart.. My relations are limited and they are VERY precious for me. People who endured me say that I am a sufferer of wanderlust in desert of thoughts , philanthropy and much more. I have been totally into literature and philosophy, and well perhaps more than desired. 

I am an engineer by degree, part of Project Coordination and Management in professional life, writer by interest, and event-organizer/entrepreneur by nature. Currently I have an experience of seventeen nineteen twenty twenty-one twenty-two twenty-three years at my credit. But am ambitious in turning out my dreams come true in the road(of life) ahead . Journeying through darkness, with a faint hope of leaving behind a spark – that would give reason to my existence.

Quoting Khalil Jibran,

“I am like a blind man who feels his way so that he will not fall.”

I am a flawed person. A brook with many stones, a clear blue sky with many blackbirds. I have many shortcomings. A rainbow that’s not long enough, a starry night with clouds. But I can only be thankful to the God who loves me just this way, and I can only be grateful to the people in my life who accept the clear blue sky with many blackbirds and who are patient with the rainbow that isn’t long enough. And because of this, I am taught love, because of this I love my God, and I love these people.

The main objective of my life is to fulfil the real meaning behind my existence. I tend to cover a journey through the eyes of what man holds within. And I have a desire for my existence to leave thoughts bewitched. I’m ambitious to pay my utmost concern to responsibilities assigned to me as a student and a human..

    • That’s really kind of you young man :) Be blessed.

    • I agree, very nice writing….

  2. Very impressive introduction ! :)
    I’ve added you to my blogroll.

  3. Errr I am honored young man!:) I really am.

  4. I’ll second cavaliere’s comment; a very impressive introcution! :)

    You’re talented, mashaAllah!

    Thanks for adding me to your blogroll!

  5. Errr!:)
    I don’t consider myself even a bit talented since it’s me who knows myself better than anyone else.
    But still, thanks for your concern:)
    And it was my pleasure. Looking forward to learn a lot.

  6. I’d leave a flattering comment, but I’m afraid you’d call me “young man” too. And that’s the kind of thing I think is best left back in college :P

    • Lol :$ Does ‘youth’ has to do anything particularly with age?:) Truly speaking, my ‘youth’ does NOT have to do anything with that. It deals more with refreshing ideas, creative viewpoints and innovative approaches. :)

      And if you dun like to be ‘young’ (:P) then I wouldn’t call you :)
      And btw, i say that unintentionally :$ It’s never intended to say that by me :)

      Ohh last but not by no means least, Welcome to my blog :)

  7. Striking intro :)
    Loved the words “I always tend to be a student.. Whether as student of engineering or life, I always am willing to learn lessons”

    • Thank you :)

      They aren’t mere words. I actually really am a pure student in real life :) Observing and learning from little things give me satisfaction.

  8. it was a good introduction…..nice to know ’bout ur learning attitude…..’cuz dat is d only path of growth in dis world…..

    my friend its good to have books as the best friends but generally the same books turn u friendless….n being a social animal we human beings generally can’t afford to be alone…..

    btw being an Electrical Engineer myself….i was happy wen i came to knw dat u too belong to the same field……woh kehte hain na K “apne hi paani mein pighal jaana barf ka muqaddar hota hai”…..

    • Thanks a lot for appreciation :)

      Ermmm:)

      Ahhan.. It’s good to know that you’re also an Electrical Engineer. Err:) You’re student or have become a complete engineer?

  9. complete engineer……and an MBA…..

    • Is that you?:)

  10. Finally I’m commenting on your blog despite being a regular visitor for quite sometime now. Sorry about it, but I am sure you do understand. :)

    I wish I could comment on every post of yours, and maybe at some point I would, but right now just wanted to wish you luck with the blogging. :)

    Regards,
    your Gudya jee.

    • Aayeiye meherbaan :)*huggie*

      Buhat dair laga dee aatay aatay :P Per kher, itni bhi dair nahin :P bas.. intezar khatam ho gaya tha :P if you know what i mean :P

      Thankoo :)

  11. phew, finally….. I am done going through all of your entries; the 2.5 years ki jhalkiyan in 2.5 hrs. They are jhalkiyan because you have been away for months in between. Things have been getting philosophical entry by entry. Thomas Finney/Calculus or Electric Circuits etc ka asar tau nahi lagta as they are just introductory courses in EE. I suppose you ‘v been through the first 2 semesters/terms so for….

    Hope your brother is doing well & is back by now. It was touching to read about the diverging & his extending in different direction from the common point.

    do qaumi nazria, qarar da’d-e-masad, Quid k 14 nukaat & pakistan k ibtidai mushkilaat ‘v been pet questions in exams. :)

    The drunk girls complaining was very brave of you. I need some time & reconsider decide its recommendation for future though. I guess I tend to agree with Mr. Sinha. btw, whats the status of that Jazba now?

    The blog introduction is pretty good hence the special mention in a blog entry is justified.

    The last post seem pretty much inspired by Ashfaq Ahmed’s work. Reminds Khayyam Sarhadi longing for his identity in Mann Challay Ka Sauda…

    Keep ’em coming…

    • Okay.. Honestly speaking, am AS shocked as i was approx. 2 months ago when i saw your post. I am shocked at how you took SO much time to spend at my crappy posts:S

      And am surprised at your information as well :P Wonder who you are mystery man/woman o.O

      But still, welcome to my blog :) and thank you SO much for investing your so valuable time and energy :)

      Jee I’ve been through first 2 semesters so far. :)

      My brother isn’t yet back :) But soon will be, inshAllah after completing his degree.

      Lol.. They’ve been ‘pet’ questions in exams but most significantly, they lay the foundation of this nation :) The foundation has been forgotten so the purpose behind a separation nation has also been diminished now.

      Status of that jazba :) Ermm.. Pata nahin. I can never say that am ‘comfortable’ with such people but kind of ignorance has though instilled in me now, honestly speaking. May be because I was so much bombarded with things making me think that i shouldn’t bog into people’s personal lives. So I’ve stopped doing that now.

      Lol :$ :)

      I’ve neither seen Mann Challay ka Sauda nor have been through much of Ashfaq Ahmad’s work, unfortunately. But i am SO willing to do so in my earliest convenience :)

      Keep your comments coming :) It was a honour to see your such a detailed reply.

      Be blessed whoever you are and wherever you remain, Ameen :)

  12. Hi!!

    Just arrived at your blog and I have to admit it looks super!! Totally professional!!

    Loved the intro that you’ve written. Now I’m all the more excited to read you. :)

    Cheers

    • Welcome to my blog, Isha :)

      Thank you SO very much for your special care and concern. Means a lot :)

      Awww.. I would love to read you as well :) But wonder what’s your blog URL :S

      Bless thee :)

  13. yep….u r very correct……

    • :)

  14. Great words to tell this world about who you are (Y). About being a student, its only the way we perceive things (and our attitude) that makes us a student, attending college or going through heavy course books isn’t really necessary, and for that matter, life is the biggest teacher of all. May Allah help you in all fields of life.

    • Life indeed is the biggest teacher of all :)
      Welcome to my blog, yet again :)

      And JazakAllah for your prayer. :) Ameen. Same goes for you as well.

  15. Plain st8 n covered in words as r u young lady….

    • Welcome to my blog :)

      Despite that your statement is a bit controversial yet i feel my responsibility to thank you for considerating comment :)

      Be blessed as you deserve to be blessed, young man :)

  16. Hello spotlesssoul
    You have a nice blog.
    Recently i have started a blog http://www.fundelight.com/blog
    I need a quality blogger for my blog.So i would like you to blog at my blog.You can write there anything you feel like but it should be quality content.

    Please Reply me Back at ars188@hotmail.com

    Awaiting you reply
    Thankyou

    • Errr.. I dun think I would be appropriate for such kindda tasks bruva :)

  17. Whoaa. You sure as hell were right about the “having a lot in common” deal. (:
    Heh, though it did kinda get me going *ehh* to have received a comment on my much older post.
    You’re on the right track kiddo, most of us make it there after going through a huge stray line-up. Mashallah. Keep writing and keep educating yourself and rare few that tag along. (:

    Abhi bohat garmi hai and I look eeky, I’ll dress up some tomorrow and come read your stuff. Heh. You’ve got lots going on the blog, noicee. =D

    *pappi*

    • Awww aww aww!:)

      Welcome to my blog, first of all :) Honoured to have you here.

      Ermm ermm ermmm :)

      Aww:D What have your looks to do with ‘comments’ and ‘reading’?:P Or does looking ‘eeky’ keeps you away from doing anything of any sort.

      Power failure has taken place here as well. But strangely that never offends me ermm :)

      I’ll be waiting for your worthy comments, answers and views :)

      Be blessed always and everafter!*huggie*

    • Haha nahin, aween messin’. ;P

      Yep, I’m another weirdo who has no issues with power failures and eeky summers, heh. JazakAllah bachay, you’re a gem. And meethi, of course. Had you been tairdhi mairdhi, I’d have called you Jalaibi. ;D *hugs back*

    • WoW.. Another similarity in us ;)

      I am no gem. It’s that a gem always tends to see a gem in every stone… whether that stone is similar to most useless piece on Earth.
      Lol :D You can call me anything you wish to :) I would rather be honoured. You yourself are enriched with honey-like-sweetness, mashAllah :)

      Khush rehiye hameeesha!:) Respect and prayers go straight for a person like you.

  18. Hi,

    i really like your “THISWANNA BE” on your blog i.e

    ” i want to be remembered as the girl who always smiles even when her heart is broken and the one that could always be brighten up your day even if couldn’t brighten her own ”

    I wish i could try to be the same for others:)

    • That’s actually a quote :) But in my case, I mean it. Sometimes I get failed in achieving my this desire while at other times God bless me with success in it.

      Welcome to my blog!:)

    • nice quote hira:) i knew it. But in this ruthless word it’s difficult to be a man/woman which above beautiful quote portrays….

      on the funnier side i will comment that it’s diffcult to be spotless as well;)

      Thanks for your welcome:)
      Regards
      Yasser

  19. Lolz. :) True Yaasir. But that’s where the test, the ‘real’ test begin. Any journey if not savoured with pains and pangs is plainly useless. That’s why it is a ‘desire’, sort of a ‘target’ which I need to ‘fulfil’. When I was talking about my failure while encountering it, then it was because of very same reason. But you know what? Lemme tell you another ‘fact’ which I myself have learned in my life. Lemme tell you that IF one never lets faith and honesty go anywhere, he/she ALWAYS ends up in a miracle… he never can be empty-handed. Because he possesses the power and strength invoked by faith. Why not you try reviving these strengths?!:) Am also in same tries.

    Lolz. That’s more of a realistic side!:) You exactly are true in concluding that it’s difficult to be spotless. Sometimes because of one’s very own role, and sometimes just because of the fact that ‘no one’ can see ‘anyone’ spotless. Choosing this nick is because of many other reasons as well, apart from being ‘tending to spotless’ lol. :)

    Be blessed always!:)

    I’ll be reading ur entire blog…really looking forward to it!

    • Awee =) Thank you Ghazi. :))

      Keeping in mind, the inspiration YOUR writing posses, it really IS honourable for me that you’ve started your blog after my blog =)

      May you’ve a fruitful journey in the world of self-exploration.

  32. this is really thought provoking :)
    Count me in as a regular visitor or better say reader of your blog :)

    • Awwh!! =) I’m really honoured Batool.

      I look forward to be in contact with you but I’m unable to find your blog link :/ I wish to see your blog as well =)

  33. Interesting quote by Khali Gibran, since I actually am blind. I was always told, or so they tell me, it’s not that I’m blind, it’s tht I have “vision” I have learned to rely on instinct, but mostly, it’s like closing my eyes, and leaning into the wind.

    • =) And how has been your experience with your instincts? Did they always guide you?

  34. Your writing amused me except the first quote of a Sufi proverb ““I searched for God and found only myself. I searched for myself and found only God”.., this is how Sufism goes into extreme level which tends to a Shirk or Bida’th.

    • I don’t think so. Shirk and Bida’th comes when ‘self-exploration’ is mixed with ‘self-praise’. In my case, I know the source and answer to EVERY possible question in the world, it’s only Almighty =) I just tend to figure out the ‘links’ and ‘chains’ which connect the source and destination. Every question finally leads us to one answer, and that’s Creator Himself. I wonder how you inferred shirk n bid’ah from that =)

    • God lies WITHIN me =) I don’t have to go to any other place to look for God. That’s the simplest and most direct meaning I take from that quote.

  35. It’s interesting the metaphors one could come up with, trusting your instincts is like trusting fate. Of course this is not always going to keep you from getting hit by a car when crossing the street with your instincts, therefore one has to reason that there is a purpose to everything that happens to us, whether it’s painful or joyous. Thus is is simply about faith and acceptance. Although, I do trust fate, which is probably one of the most foolish things one can do, but more often than not, when we close our eyes and don’t think about things, it’s that kind of surrender which leads you through the storm.

  36. The reasons behind my assumptions are :

    “I searched for God and found only myself. I searched for myself and found only God”.

    Take the first part..“I searched for God and found only myself” What does this mean?

    Is that yourself is a God?

    Second part…” I searched for myself and found only God”.

    It means God is in with you?

    Can you elaborate? why is so ambiguous?

    • Selam Masood,

      Your questions are rhetorical ones I guess. This “argument” between Sofis and the others is a thousand years old.

      We can’t take Ayat and Sunnah (I don’t know if you object to this too, though) literally, hence the tafsirs.

      Sofism is an interpretation just like the one you tend to subscribe. To claim there is only one way , strictly, to understand Quran, and claiming it’s the *only* Haqq way is a bit arrogant. (Have you heard the story of 4 blind men and elephant, if not yet, google it, you may find it interesting)

      “To know Allah , is different from knowing his existence”.

      Ma’assalam,

      Levent

      P.S: I’m not a Sofi.

  37. Hira you wont find my blog link anywhere because I DON’T blog. haha :D
    Actually I only write whenever there is an assignment due LOL :p
    But I like READING good blog posts, and I found your blog’s link at one of my Friend’s blog
