Abida Perveen, Sufism queen, a renowned name and pride of our country with her distinguishing style and personality. Her singing is heart touching, her simplicity is heart taking. Sufism cannot attain by worldly means, but only by knowledge and practice, deep insight for things, and love for humanity. In which one don’t care what world says about them, but they indulge themselves deeply.

“What has he found who has lost God?

And what has he lost who has found God?”

― Ibn ‘Ata’ Allah Al-Iskandari

When there is ALLAH’s hand with you, you get the successes in life; I think Abida Perveen is one of those singers who did it. She is doing this job heartily. She got life time achievement award from India. This is not her first award she has already been awarded highest civil awards in Pakistan; Pride of Performance in 1982 and Sitara-e-Imtiaz in 2005. She is true to her profession. And she has proved it with her singing.

This queen of hearts is also proving her talent to the world. She is blessed with something that we don’t have. These are true legends of our country. True representatives, who knows to win the hearts of people,. Nusrat fateh Ali khan, Malika Taranum Noor Jehan what they have done for us is worth million. We can’t forget them their singing, their voices are still alive.

I really proudly congratulate her for this achievement and may ALLAH bless her with so many other blessings and achievements in life.

    And obey Allah and the Messenger that you may obtain mercy. (3:132)

    Those are the limits set by Allah, and who obeys Allah and His Messenger, He (Allah) will make him enter Gardens (in Paradise) underneath which rivers flow, to abide therein. And that is the great success. (4:13)

    O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority from amongst you, then if you have a dispute concerning any matter, refer it to Allah and the (Prophetic) Messenger if you believe in Allah and the Last Day (of Jedgement). That is better and very good in the end. (4:59)

    And who obeys Allah and the Messenger, they will be with those to whom Allah has shown favour, of the Prophets and the Truthful and the Martyrs and the Righteous, and the best of Companions are they! (4:69)

    And the believing (Muslim) men and the believing (Muslim) women are protecting friends one of another; they enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong, and they establish regular Prayer and they give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and they obey Allah and His Messenger. As for these, Allah will have mercy on them. Undoubtedly, Allah is Mighty, Wise. (9:71)

    And he who obeys Allah and His Messenger, and has reverential awe of Allah, and keeps his duty (to Him): then these it is that are the successful. (24:52)

    Say (O Beloved Prophet): “Obey Allah and obey the Messenger. But if you turn away, he is only responsible for the duty placed on him and you for that placed on you, and if you obey him, you will be rightly guided. And the responsibility of the (Prophetic) Messenger is only to convey (the Message) clearly. (24:54)

    The bedouins say: “We believe”. Say (to them, O beloved Prophet): “You do not (yet) believe, but rather say ‘We have submitted’, for the Faith has not yet entered your hearts. But if you obey Allah and His Messenger, He will not diminish anything of (the reward of) your deeds. Surely, Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

    And obey Allah and obey the Messenger; but if you turn away, then (know that) the duty of our Messenger is only to convey (the Message) clearly. (64:12)
