I hope you have missed me all this time while I was away. But my love for being with you has ignited again and here i am speaking to you. It has been almost 4 months now and there hasn’t been a time when i have not been thinking about you. To be honest, I was a little mad at you. I thought you were ruining my life and all my plans. But, you know… you and I may plan but it is Allah who is the best of Planners 🙂
I can’t believe how things have changed for the good alhamdolilah. And since I owe you an apology for not speaking for you for so long for something so irrational, I am gonna start from where i left.
so now, i am in my final year at IBA. I am very happy and thankful to Allah for giving me so much in life. I read my friend’s status update some time back “O Allah how can i thank you enough for Your favours when my thanking to you is also your favour upon me”
In the meanwhile, i have started this Islamic course at Zaynab Academy. its an absolutely wonderful course! we study 3 courses for Arabic, and Quran and Hadith as well as have regular fiqh workshops. the best part about it is not only the knowledge I am getting but also the wonderful company. I have been craving to be in such a place my entire life and I can’t believe Allah has chosen me to be a part of this gathering 🙂 I read this hadith:
“Whoever treads on a path in search of Islamic knowledge, Allah will ease the way to Paradise for him. The angels will lower their wings, pleased with this seeker of knowledge, and everyone in the heavens and on earth will ask forgiveness for the knowledgeable person, even the fish in the deepest of waters will ask for his forgiveness” [Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi # 2835-sahih hadith]
and more about how Allah taala bestows His mercy on not only the place where such gatherings are held but also on the people who only happen to pass from such places. SubhanAllah! I really can’t thank Allah enough. I just hope i can do justice to the knowledge I am getting and share it with others as much as I can. a friend who had done an Islamic course sometime told me “Nida, this knowledge that I have is like having a bowl of water which is cracked. If I dont give this on my own.. it will eventually leak and vanish away” My mind is like stuck to these words. I try my best to impart as much knowledge as I can magar without you, oh dear blog, I was finding it difficult. inshaAllah through you, I will serve the purpose I am created for.
More has happened too on the personal front. You will be happy to know that i have found the person I am gonna spend the rest of my life with 🙂 surprised? well, you have been a loyal friend and you played your due role 😉
By the way, I have realized my hidden passion for entrepreneurship and I have been thinking what and how will it happen. but inshaAllah I will try my best to serve Islam through this energy.
oh and yes, remember how I had been talking about my articles in Iqra Times? well, it has turned into a magazine now and will soon be launched inshaAllah.the team is really good this time. I am very excited and I am sure you are excited as well! Iqra Society is one place where I feel very close to Allah 🙂
I think I should go now. I will be sharing more thoughts in the future, like previous times inshaAllah 🙂 next week are my second mids and i have absolutely no preparation. please pray for me!
your forgotten friend
