A Legend of east

  • A true lover Saeen Sadiq

     This universe is based on minus plus combination.The man and woman are also result of x and y gen combination.Love is the magnetic power which brings near two genders and induces them to sacrifice for each other.When a person loves someone selflessly,gives off his every thing for his beloved and fails to get him materially.God's blessing showers upon him and make him spiritually powerful.
       In east, such incidents are more common but if we study west literature it also confirms supremacy of true love. The story I am telling is about such a true and pure lover.Sadiq lived in that village which is my birth place.I met many people to gather true information about him.
    Sadiq was only son of his parents.Who ever saw him admired his god gifted beauty and innocence.When he grew up he was just like Cupid.His parents has plenty of wealth and he had no worry about his necessities.He dressed up in a best way and wandered here and there.Women sitting in their homes came to know about his presence by his specific perfume that he is passing by the street.He had many friends but he often got sad because his parents had died in his childhood one after another.Meanwhile he came across the daughter of a pheasant, Fatima.He lost his heart before her adolescence and beauty.He sent his proposal via one of his aunt.Proposal was accepted with full zeal as he had no short coming.He was so impatient in his love that he did,t cared of that time tradition.According to that tradition it was a taboo to sent gifts personally to someone's fiancee.He sent some gifts to Fatima.Her parents annoyed at this action and abstained him to not do so in future. He agreed. Some wicked and greedy women heard this news and planned to rob this innocent lover.They came to him one by one and promised to deliver his gifts to Fatima.He was so blind in his love that he could,t understood their ill traits.These women took heavy amount from him in form of very costly gifts. Sadiq sold his property and even his house.When Fatima,s parents knew this situation they broke engagement.This accident made Sadiq mad.He left care of his hair and clothes .People saw him lying on the grass outside the village in severe winter and in severe summer.Sometimes he seemed sitting in the street in different of his surroundings talking to his beloved,"Fati! look! our children are so cute just like you(there were no children but he thought they are) but you don,t look after them well.Go children .Take bath,go my son!'' People listened and took pity on him and passed by.His relatives with whom he was staying were fed up of him so they said him to left their home .He came to a nearby mosque.People gave him food for some time then they too got indifferent but God the pure feeder was,t indifferent 

    In these days merchants coming in villages used to stay in mosque and had a rest there.They saw him constantly in mosque and thought he was a saint.They told him their desires and requested him to pray for them.Luckily,their desires were fulfilled and they thought it was due to spiritual power of Sadiq.After some time,court gave death sentence to the only son of a merchant.He tried to get rid of this nuisance but failed.Some of his friend told him about spiritual power of Sadiq and suggested him to meet him.Merchant went to Sadiq and requested him to pray but Sadiq was in an Ecstasy mood.When the dawn appeared Sadiq looked at him and said "go!your son is released."Merchant rushed to the court and listened the news that his son was released.From that day merchant became his slave and his care taker.He offered him home but Sadiq refused.He didn't objected. He daily came to feed him and gave him money and other precious things. When his relative saw this they came to take him. At that time he had grown old and sick. The merchant had said to his relatives to inform him if Sadiq dies. Unluckily, when Sadiq died merchant was out of city so his relatives buried him in their family graveyard. When merchant came back he was annoyed very much.He dig out Sadiq's dead body and buried it at the place which he had bought for his grave. He also built up a tomb and arranged an annual 'urs' (anniversary) where all of Sadiq's murids(followers) come without any discrimination of rich or poor, stay for three days, qawals sing qwalies whole night. In these days the tomb is lit with colour ful decorative lights. When flags flare in the air, we recall that pure but blind lover...
