17. Last Steps

It was early evening by now and Saqi was supposed to leave for his office. Moreover, Saqi thought it would be better to leave the place before he loses patience. He wanted to clear loads of things with Sadia but the situation and condition would not have allowed that. Neither was she in a condition to understand anything at this time, nor was it appropriate to talk to her in front of all of them. The agony and pain she was going through at the moment was all getting reflected through her heavy breaths and tears which she couldn’t stop. Saqi just felt helpless to have done anything for Sadia at the moment. The condition just didn’t allow that. Without even trying to understand, they disagreed to every word that Saqi said. All the time they kept saying that they knew everything and not to say a word in front of them. On the other hand they asked to answer their questions. Don’t know how that could have been possible. He just couldn’t take it anymore. Their every word was full of hatred for Saqi. He thought, what they actually want to know if they already know everything. He just wished that by some miracle, if someone would make them understand the right things in an apt manner. Their skepticism, raised voices and the unusual way in which they comprehended things made Saqi feel that it was actually pointless to break head in front of them.

Within, Saqi thought that there are times when you can’t actually do anything even though you try your best to; in those times you should leave everything to God and let HIM decide the best for everyone. So taking this thought along, saying “Khuda-Hafiz” to everyone, he walked towards the main entrance door. Sadia’s eyes were getting blood red with satiated tears. She was just inconsolable and as Saqi started to leave the place, he too just couldn’t stop his tears. It was obvious as none of them would have ever even dreamt that their friendship would get ended this way. Saqi just asked himself as to what awful did he do to anyone to get hated by someone like this. He prayed to God to make it easy for Sadia once he leaves; and to give her strength to deal with the situation and most of all, her parents. He just asked God to show them the right path and increase their center to let them comprehend things the right way. That’s all he found appropriate at the moment to have done that was under his control. He thought that let God decide the best for everyone and hoped that a day would come when the conditions would make up everything again as they had broken it for now. Time is the best healer so let the conditions take their time to set the right time.

Reading through the Last Steps makes it feel that all the efforts were in vain... No one listned, no one learnt anything new, everyone knew everything... no one wanted to listnen.
Why is it that when people know they may be wrong they don't even want to give the possibility of finding out if the are???
Pride is such a horrible sin when you can't find the time to look into yourself and listnen to others also. There are always to sides of a story and however things may seem try to look at them through someone else's eyes may help us grow into better people.
May God help Sadia's family, Sadia and Saqi each in their own way.

Hats off Saqi....

I really appreciate Saqi for his Patience and though painful but a good move in order to save Sadia from her careless and rude parents.

Hope for the Best, Insha ALLAH TALA everything will be ok.ALLAH TALA never gives pain/problems to anybody more than his/her capacity of tolerance/tackle .

Saqi's state...

Maine teri rah ka har kanta apni Palkoun se chuna.....
Log Kehte hain dushman ho tera, tune suna.....

Sadia need to take a brave step to change the wrong things around her and her life. As even GOD will not help her without her move to change.

As Poet Mohammad Iqbal says

KHUDA ne aaj tak us kaum ki halat nahi badli..
Na ho jisko khayal aap apni haalat badalne ka...
