Change That God Brings (Qudrat Ullah Shahab: Mard-e-Abresham)

Tabdeeli Jo Allah Lata Hai.....(By Qudrat Ullah Shahab)
Excerpt from Book: Mard-e-Abresham by Bano Qudsia
Although the text is not very clear but it can be readable.
English Translation is below 

 English Translation:

A group of students came to Qudrat Ullah Shahab and started discussion on politics and change in society, One of them named Qasim, was very practical and had a desire that there should be a radical change in Pakistan and he should take important part in that basic change. He questioned Qudrat Ullah Shahab.

Shahab Uncle, Please tell us, Will you not bring any change?…. any type of it?

Shahab replied, “Every society, every community is changing all the time, some changes are such which you can see, some are folded under surface. Due to resources of transportation and media, world is getting  closer. Whatever happens in far east, affects whole West. People of different generations and colors don’t look strange. Cultures are reducing distance. Change comes in both, outside and inside but there is a very fine change which comes with the Will of God. A person who understands that whatever is happening and whatever will happen, will be according to the commands of God, he will not disappoint with these petty changes. Just like before the arrival of some well-known citizen in gathering, chairs are laid, tent ropes are tightened, dais is made. In an empty ground, when many changes have made up to some extent then the President’s vehicle arrives.

Qasim said, “It means, Let not change anything? Let them remain like this?”

Shahab kept drinking milk and said after long pause, “Try to recognize this fine change, grasp its string, then whatever changes inside or outside, never drop that string, As you all know, the change, that we bring, has little good and little bad in it……but The Change, that God brings, is completely pure.It hasn’t good and bad mixed”
