niqabisinparis:

The Quran says that your children and wealth are also fitnah for you but you don’t see people reacting to them the same way they do to “women are fitnah.” Do you even know the definition of fitnah. Are we all reading the same book.

dastaanewatan:

Watan Ki Fikar Kar Nadan! Musibat Ane Wali Hai
Teri Barbadiyon Ke Mashware Hain Asmanon Mein

Think of the homeland, O ignorant one! Hard times are coming
Conspiracies for your destruction are afoot in the heavens

Zara Dekh Uss Ko Jo Kuch Ho Raha Hai, Hone Wala Hai
Dhara Kya Hai Bhala Ehd-e-Kuhan Ki Dasatnon Mein

Pay attention to what is happening and what is going to happen
What good there is in repeating the tales of the old glories?

Ye Khamoshi Kahan Tak? Lazzat-e-Faryad Paida Kar
Zameen Par Tu Ho Aur Teri Sada Ho Asmanon Mein

How long will you remain silent? Create taste for complaint!
You should be on the earth, so your cries be in the heavens!

Na Samjho Ge To Mit Jao Ge Ae Hindustanon Walo !
Tumhari Dastan Tak Bhi Na Ho Gi Dastanon Mein

You will be annihilated if you do not understand, O people of India!
Even your tales will disappear from the world’s chronicles

Allama Iqbal’s poem written prior to the creation of Pakistan, but highly  relevant to Pakistan today.

mertseger:

Ziggurat of King Urnammu, Ur (El Muqeiyar), Iraq. 2100 B.C. 
 Taller and more tower like ziggurats - has 3 levels. Sun-baked bricks glazed with different colors. Temple located on top of the city. All activities take place on varying levels (law, trading, economics). Reflect widespread belief that mountaintops are the dwelling places of gods. Felt they could provide a residence for a deity by creating their own artificial mountains.
