Mushaira-e-Iftaar

Today is the fourteenth consecutive day we’ve been fasting during the day, and will continue to fast for the next 15 or 16 days, depending upon moon-sighting. During the holy month of Ramazan friends and relative invite each other for Iftaar (breaking of fast) dinner.

Yesterday I started a thread on email with a few verses, and my friends gave an overwhelming response likewise. This is how it went like.

{ English}

Me:
O’ my brothers the great
Long time since we’ve all met

Why don’t you invite for Aftaar
Let the venue be near or let it be far!

Sharoon:
You owe us a b’day treat so let it be aftaar,
Do it quickly bro as the eid is not so far

Me:
Ye Eid is near ‘n’ lots o expenses are in line
You must invite us and be our Valentine!!! 🙂

Umar:
In ramzan ..there is no room for wine and dine
Go to langar of Abdullah Shah Ghazi and stand in line

Me:
Anyone from our group should invite
Aftar may be heavy or it may be light…

{ Urdu}

Rehan:
Rasm-e-dunya bhi hay, moqa bhi hay aur ooper sey hey Ramazan
Mil k dey dein Iftaar-dinner, Agha, Azhar aur Umar Khan!

Me:
But, ramzan me b tum log kya kam girte ho
Aftar ko aftar nhi, valima samajhtay ho…

Umar:
Jaib k haalat buhut hain kharab
Kabhi hamain khilao naan shah faisal k kabab

Rehan:
after eid, alag sey dey ga toh phatt jaye gee
mil k dey dou abhi, jaib aur izzat, bach jaye gee

Umar:
Jazbaat o ahsaasaat ko kaarobaar bana baithay ho
Gift daitay nahi party ki batain kartay ho

Sharoon:
Wo Dost tha magar uski achi Kamai na thi,
K Soup, bottle, Chai usne kabi Pilai na thi

Umar:
Baby aur teekoo ki buhut bari kamaaee thee
Q K unkay saath peer ki dua aur rehnumaaee thee
