After Sixty

Those of us who have crossed sixty years of age must focus on the following couplet (of Hazrat Shah Muhammed Ahmed Sahab Pratapgarhi (RA)):

Saw the land of rising sun, and saw the land of sunset too
Now it is hereafter that worries, this world has been seen enough.

(Waqt-e-tulu dekha, waqt-e-ghuroob dekha,
Ab fike-e-aakhirat hai, dunia ko khoob dekha)

(Sitting (majlis) on Friday, October 29, 2010)
