"Dil Kee Batain"

Dil Kee Batain is a literary dairy. It is a journey of discovery for the author. She illustrates with the help of words how she became a writer. It is not an autobiographic dairy but a literary journey of a young woman as she finds herself in her writings. This journey continues to the present time when she is a mature, self assured and welknown author, yet she has not lost her innocence though there is melancholy at the end of her journey.

Chandni in Saqiba's own words

For the longest time family members, friends, young people and children have asked me again and again what I recite day and night in my prayers. I did not give any replies as I did not feel worthy to give one as prayers are told by Sufies, Alims and people who are highly spiritual. I felt that I was not one who could tell others what to recite as I did not have a method, a set number of times or an organized way in which I recited the Ayah’s of the Quran-e-Pak. My way is simple, it’s purely my love for Allah and his beloved prophet Hazrat Mohammad (peace be upon him) that comes through in my prayers.

So I have compiled a simple book for friends and family. You can recite from it whenever and wherever you are, as much as you want. Most of it you already know by heart. You might also feel that these Ayahs have been in your heart and soul, your life and your hereafter.

Please accept this humble gift from me. It’s a gift for you and your whole family, for all of Allah’s people, for the people of my beloved country, for the whole of the universe. I am a humble servant of Allah in search of Allah’s blessings and forgiveness.

May Allah accept this humble gift from a humble servant.


Saqiba  Rahimuddin.
