23rd March – Resolution Day

23rd March 1940 carries a significant importance in life of every Muslim. It was the day when the idea of independent homeland for Muslim was laid in which they can lead their lives according to the teachings of Islam; follow their own culture, traditions and their very way of life independently.

As Quaid-e-Azam, made this historic speech on this day, “Muslims are a nation according to any definition of nation. We wish our people to develop to the fullest spiritual, cultural, economic, social and political life in a way that we think best and in consonance with our own ideals and according to the genius of our people”

After such strong words; untiring efforts and soil turning red our ancestors managed to pull off a homeland which we can call “Pakistan” today. But pity, only to become slave of the western world once again. Pakistan was declared as a Muslim state only again to follow the British Constitution as their law; only to know that everything is practiced in this state but Islam.

However, In Pakistan when common man is triggered by so many social problems, facing the crucial financial crisis but in this situation also, he celebrates the resolution day; putting all his problems and calamities at bay which he is facing in Pakistan with the feeling of patriotism, joy and love for our dear homeland and hope that one day Pakistan will gain its long lost identity in the international world.

And the award goes to Sharmin Obaid Chinoy

Lights Camera Action!…  Another documentary film came into being. And the award goes to Sharmin Oaid Chinoy for best short subject documentary film of the year. “A Girl in the River- The Price of Forgiveness” thus becoming an Oscar winner for the second time.

The lady has again taken the entire Pakistan by storm. Giving voice to an issue which has always been unheard is her forte. “Saving faces” then and “A girl in the river” now.

“This is what happens when determined women get together,” Chinoy said as she holds the golden statuette.

Honour killing is a subject, or to be more precise an ugly reality of our society veiled under the black cloak and suppressed to the deepest roots, with a lot more hideous issues accompanying.

Honour killing, better known as Karo kari; in which yet again only a lesser powerful and clamped gender is overpowered- females. Where family members consider themselves to be authorized to kill her in order to restore family honour. In the majority of cases, the victim of the attacks is female and the irony is; attackers are the male members of her family or community.

The Chinoy’s film features; The 19-year-old Saba, a survivor of an attempted honour killing who was beaten up, shot and thrown into a river by her father and uncle for marrying a man without their approval. At the last moment, she tilted her head, meaning the bullet grazed her cheek instead of shattering her skull.

Now the question is, if this spine-chilling crime will be history in a few days’ time right after the fire cools down to ashes, as we don’t expect societal attitude towards gender-based violence to change overnight. But as they say better late than never, government vows to take step in order to eradicate the dreadful honour killing.

Pizza Party @ MamooInPakistan!

The MamooInPakistan offices were chaotic this week as the team worked tirelessly to complete urgent tasks in order to satisfy its valued clients. But the hard work and endless hours paid off when one of the clients, Mr. Fahim Iqbal Malik from Kuwait, decided to show his appreciation to the team by sending them a complimentary lunch.

Mr. Fahim Iqbal required WES attestation, but was unable to do so himself since he resides in Kuwait, and did not have any trustworthy resource available in Pakistan to help him with the same.  He contacted the team at MamooInPakistan.com for this purpose, and we were glad to be of service. Time was of essence, but the team at MIP is highly trained in prompt action. Hence, the WES attestation was completed in a timely manner, much to the gratification of Mr. Fahim!

So glad was Mr. Fahim that he treated the MIP team to lunch, and merry was the atmosphere in the office as the team members enjoyed delicious pizza, ice-cold drinks, and a heartfelt realization of success. The celebration felt even better due to a deep sense of contentment that comes with the knowledge that our client was well-satisfied with our work. Thank you, Mr, Fahim Iqbal for this impromptu pizza party! We loved every minute – and every bite! :)  Collage copy

Documentation is Key.

Believe it or not, but documentation is key. No matter what you attempt to do, why you attempt to do it, where you attempt to do it, when you attempt to it, how you attempt it, there is always going to be a plethora of absolutely vital documents that you will need in order to proceed (and hopefully, finish).

Even though we all know where these documents invariably end up.

Because admit it. Often-times (and sometimes even more than that), there really was no need for that document in the first place. 

Seriously.  Searching for your one true love? Documents required.

Getting married or divorced? Documents required.

Had a baby? Documentation required.

Getting your child registered in playschool? Documents required.

Want to pursue a fancy-shancy college degree? Documents required.

Want to apply for immigration? Documents required.

Applying for a job? Documents required.

Setting up a business? Documents required.

Have you DIED? Oh well, sorry for your loss, but could you get it documented too, please?

Pretty sure the need of documents continues in the hereafter as well.

Before you get sucked into any such scams, try your best to look for the safest, most reliable source to sort out your documentation issues. The safest bet in this regard is family; ask a relative. Unfortunately, however, not all of us are blessed with cooperative families. So our next option is a trusty friend. Some of us are not lucky enough in this regard either, which forces us to search for a third-party to solve our problem.

Reasons Why We Should Help Others

Why should we help others? Why should we expend our time, energy, and resources in making others happy when that time, energy and resources can be so easily utilized for our own well-being?

Here’s why:

When you help others, you help yourself: a simple act of help and caring creates an endless ripple that eventually comes back to you – what goes around comes around.

There is more happiness in giving than receiving: doing good things for others boosts your self-respect and makes you feel the satisfaction that comes from giving.

It connects you with another person, at least for a moment, if not for life: it’s like passing on a little bit of yourself on to someone else, which creates a bond between you two.

It improves the life of another, at least a little: no matter how small your gesture, it makes a significant impact on the other person’s life in some way or the other.

By helping others, you are thanking God for the blessings bestowed upon you: when you help others, it gives you a chance to pause and reflect on the advantage you have on others, thanks to His blessings.

It sets an example for others, specially the younger generation: children imitate their elders, and if they witness their elders doing good, they will do the same.

And finally, if that kindness is passed on, it can multiply, and multipy, and multiply some more, until the world is a happier place for everyone.

MamooInPakistan, for these very reasons, strives to reach out to any and every one who is need of assistance, whatever that may be.

Because at MamooInPakistan, we aspire to spread love, happiness, and smiles.

At MamooInPakistan, we seek to make lives easier, one small step at a time.

Tragic incidents happening during Hajj 2015

The pilgrimage to Holy Kaa’ba is one of the most auspicious acts of worship in Islam. Every year, millions of Muslims from all over the globe gather in Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj, leaving behind millions of others who pray day and night to be granted the opportunity of performing this Holy Pilgrimage.

Hajj

As traditionally performed, comprised of a series of rites involving several locations within Saudi Arab surrounding the Kaa’ba, Hajj is a somewhat complicated process, and for this reason, is meticulously planned by the Saudi authorities beforehand. Despite the arrangements made by the Saudi government, there have been several incidents over the years resulting in the loss of a good number of lives. The past nine Hajj, however, were unmarked by any tragic incident. The year 2015, on the other hand, proved to be a tough one for the Hujjaj, with two tragic incidents happening during Hajj merely a week apart.

11th September witnessed a crane crashing in Makkah, taking away the lives of some 111 Hujjaj and injuring 394 more. 24th September, however, proved to be more fatal due to a monumental stampede occurring in Mina. The deadliest accident to occur during Hajj since the 1990 disaster that killed 1,426 people, the Mina stampede is said to have a death toll between 1100-4000 – a census unable to be reached due to conflicting reports. Speculations have been flying regarding the causes of the incident, ranging from sectarian conflict to mismanagement on the part of Saudi authorities.

What we need to understand, however, is that instead of flinging accusations regarding the causes of the stampede, the Muslim world needs to unite in face of such a calamity, rather than disintegrate into sectarian factions feuding amongst each other.  Instead of wasting our time endlessly arguing over who is to blame, we ought to channel our time and energies into praying for the deceased, and attempt to at least lessen the grief of the mourning families they left behind.

Despite the pain, grief, and sorrow surrounding the incident, there is one silver lining on the cloud, and that is the status of ‘shaheed’ that each Haji achieved on his or her death in the incident. It would not be an exaggeration to term it as the highest of all honors to die while worshipping Allah, at His home, in the state of Wuzu. Indeed, the thousands of Hujjaj who lost their lives at Mina, found the most precious treasure – Jannah.

Roza Kushai Celebration with Mamooinpakistan

Roza is a strong pillar of Islam which is why it is necessary to fast during the sacred month of Ramadan. You must be remembering the time when you fasted for the first time and were anxiously waiting for the day to pass quickly as you were sure of something special being prepared in iftari. Celebrating the first roza of a young believer is still not an old trend in Pakistan because parents want their son or daughter to cherish memories of their first Roza iftar throughout their life, and want them to remember how big an achievement was it.

roza kushai

Parents try organizing the feast with zeal and zest thinking how adorable their child will look to all on his Roza kushai, how blissful they can make this event for him/her? The same way Mamooinpakistan wants the celebration to be grand and great. What changes is that now instead of you going through the hassle of inviting guests, booking a nice comfy place, hiring event managers, deciding on a yummylicious menu, appointing a cool photographer to capture the sparkling child with all his/her  friends and relatives around can be done by “Mamooinpakistan”.

Mamooinpakistan provides you with commendable services. You only have to enjoy the blessed moments with your child as the rest will be done by the exciting and dedicated team of Mamooinpakistan.

Looks like Mamoo in Pakistan knows all about birthdays!

bdayWhat happens when a wish comes Flying all the way from the United Kingdom?  We fulfill it. Our very dear customer Ahmed sent in a worried request online on the website of Mamoo in Pakistan. His gorgeous fiancé had her birthday around the corner and he was absolutely perturbed by the idea of not being present with her on her day. I bet he had sleepless nights until he came across MIP and sent that email, but lucky him! He got to the right place, eventually.

His idea of a special birthday was a dinner at Salt n Pepper around the absolutely pleasing view of the sea and beautifully wrapped gifts and flowers for his wife to be. Not just this, but he had also requested the MIP team to be a part of the grand juncture. The MIP team always looks forward to challenging requests because they help us grow and experience new possibilities. They remind us of the fact that MIP can make anything and everything happen.

hjkgu

The stunning interior and exterior of the village was definitely very pleasing and to top everything, the food made everyone go head over heels. However, this was not the end. The delighted young lady was presented with her very valuable gift in the face of a laptop, and fresh dazzling flowers and while this was happening, MIP arranged a violin player and live-streaming for her husband, so he could feel and enjoy each and every moment of the surprise. The cake was cut while everyone chanted “happy birthday” with laughter, smiles and of course a few over whelmed tears and this is how the wonderful event came to an end.

The preparations may have been troublesome but we never let the client feel for a second what was going on behind the scene, even if it were a scene from the Jurassic park out there. The happy family had nothing but best wishes for us and we hope and pray that they live as happy as they were that night.
