The Tire

The wheel is an important invention because it enabled man to travel. For thousands of years man had been using wooden wheels in cart and chariots. Although, these wheels could move the vehicles, they were not fast enough. Finally, when the tire was invented in the 19th century, it became possible for man to move his bicycle, car or truck on the road with much more speed. The invention of the tire brought about a revolution and made travelling easy. Tires are made with natural or artificial (synthetic) rubber but other materials are also used to make it e.g. black carbon, steel, nylon, polyester, cobalt, sulphar, and many more things. When bullock carts and chariots were made, their wheels were covered with leather bands or iron so that they could move easily but travelling on these wheels was not comfortable. Shocks were created due to the rough road surface and pits.

Dr. John Dunlop, faced the same difficulty. John Dunlop was a veterinary doctor. His 10 years old son Johnny often suffered from headaches. A physician had prescribed cycling as an exercise for the boy. But Johnny suffered shocks on the road and his headache continued. Dr. John was an inventor as well. He did lots of research and experiments before inventing rubber tires to save his son from shocks. Johnny’s cycle started running smoothly and without shocks when the rubber tires were mounted over his cycle wheels. John Dunlop invented a tire in 1888 which could be inflated with air.

ایک مسجد کی آپ بیتی

میں ایک مسجد ہوں۔ میرا نام "جامع مسجد فاروقی"ہے۔میں شہروں،قصبوں اور دیہاتوں ہر جگہ پائی جاتی ہوں ۔پہلی مسجدکی تعمیر پیارے رسولؐ نے کی جسے "مسجدِ قُبا " کا نام دیا گیا۔میری تعمیر مخّیر حضرات کرتےہیں۔اس کے علاوہ میری تعمیر کے لئے "چندہ" بھی اکٹّھا کیا جاتا ہے۔میری تعمیر میں قیمتی پتّھر،منّقش ٹائلز استعمال کئے جاتے ہیں۔میری دیواروں کو بیل بوٹوں اور آیاتِ قرآنی سے سجایا جاتا ہے۔اور میرے میناروں اور گنبد کو بلند کیا جاتا ہے۔میری زمین پر نفیس قالین بچھائے جاتے ہیں اور میری چھتوںپر عمدہ فانوس لٹکائے جاتے ہیں۔

لیکن میں بہت دُکھی ہوں کیونکہ پہلے میں بہت سادہ بنائی جاتی تھی لیکن لوگوں سےبھری ہوتی تھی ،آج میں بہت سجائی جاتی ہوں لیکن لوگوں سے خالی ہوتی ہوں۔میری خواہش ہے کہ لوگ پہلے کی طرح میرے پاس دوڑ دوڑ کر آئیں۔ میری زندگی کا مقصد لوگوں کو نماز اور نیک کاموں کی طرف راغب کرنا ہے۔

میری دُعا ہے کہ ہر مسلمان پنج وقتہ نمازی بن جائے ۔آمین

:بقول شاعر

مسجد تو بنادی شب بھر میں ایماں کی حرارت والوں نے
من اپنا پُرانا پاپی تھا ، برسوں میں نمازی بن نہ سکا

مریم نے کیک بنایا

چھُٹی کا دن تھا،مریم نے ایک منصوبہ بنایا کہ آج میں امی ابّو کے لئے اچھّا سا کیک بناکر سب کو حیران کردوں گی۔دوپہر کو کھانے کے بعد جب سب گھر والے آرام کر رہے تھے ۔وہ خاموشی سے باورچی خانے میں گئی، اور ترکیب کے مطابق کیبنٹ میں سے میدہ،شکر اور بیکنگ پاؤڈر نکالا۔پھر فریج سے انڈے اور مکھّن نکالا۔اچانک اس کے ہاتھ سے ایک انڈہ گر کر ٹوٹ گیا،اُسے سنبھالنے لگی تو پیالہ بھی اُس کے ہاتھ سے چھوٹ گیا۔زوردار آواز سُن کر امی باورچی خانے میں آگئیں۔امی کو آتا دیکھ کر مریم پریشان ہو گئی۔پہلے تو امی نے اُسے غصّے سے دیکھا پھر اُسے پیار سے گلے لگاتے ہوئے کہا:"بیٹا ہر کام کرنے سے پہلے بڑوں سے اجازت لینا چاہئے اگر آپ کو اس سے کوئی نقصان ہو جاتا تو کیا ہوتا"؟

مریم بہت شرمندہ تھی اُس نے وعدہ کیا کہ آئندہ وہ اس بات کاخیال رکھے گی۔پھر مریم اور امی نے مل کر کیک بنایا۔سب نے شام کی چائے پر مریم کے ہاتھ کا بنا ہوا مزیدارکیک کھایا۔ اور دل کھول کر کیک کی تعریف کی۔
