An Urdu Sms I Got Sent The Other Day

Recommended Posts

Assalamu Alaikum

 

 

Lafzo pe nahi, matlab pe gaur kare

 

prayer jo hum par FARZ kar di gayi

 

FAJAR...Bister mein

 

ZOHAR...Naukri mein

 

ASAR...Chai mein

 

MAGHRIB...Raastey mein

 

ISHA...TV mein

 

Na Durood, Na Quran.. Ye kaisa hai Musalmaan?

 

Phir kehte 'kyu nahi hai Allah hum par meharbaan'?

 

Toh prayer parho, is se pehle ke tumhari prayer parhi jaaye....

Assalamu Alaikum

 

Here's my attempt at translating all of it, my urdu isn't perfect so maybe someone can correct any mistakes..

Take heed of the message, not the words..

 

The Salat that has been made FARD upon us..

 

FAJR...In your bed

 

ZOHAR...In your job

 

ASAR...Having tea

 

MAGHRIB...On your way back (from work)

 

ISHA...Watching TV

 

No Durood, no Quran..What kind of Muslim is this?

 

Then you ask "Why has Allah not blessed us"?

 

So pray your prayers before your prayer is read (over you)...

The translation is spot on, except the word "meharbaan", it is defined as 'blessed' which is right, but as I read the Urdu text, I translated meharbaan as "favor", "gracious", "generous" or even "bounteous".

 

Then you ask, why isn't Allah favorable/gracious/bounteous/generous on us?

So pray your prayers, before a prayer is read over you

 

:sl: for the poem.

JazakAllahkhair for the correction sister Aamina, "meharbaan" was one of the words I was unsure about, also the word "gaur kere" at first I thought it should be "concentrate" but wasn't sure..
