Stress, Anger and Our Body PH Level
We are still alive, still have a chance...
After the passing of sister Nazish now we know who she was, before we just knew she was one of our gp member from Al huda ,Salman gp where she started her 1st journey. I remember in our 1st gp during introduction Nazish kept saying, "I felt bad now, I spent my life in getting worldly education and work. Why didn't I start learning Quran before." I told her you are not too late, at least you started now.
She was an active gp member always present in regular gp & also in our study gp. We assigned her as a gp incharge in our study gp, she conducted her gp so well that we were surprised b/ mostly in the class she was quiet person.
Beside Al Huda she started taking classes on line offered by Sheikh Al Shareef.
She also joined the Alim course from voice of Umma, she completed the 6 months course and then she enrolled in the next program that is going to end in December.
When we look at sister Nazish's life, her struggle with her disease & her passion to learn Allah swt's deen, none of us can say I don't have time to learn Allah swt's book. We are lucky we are still alive, we are stillbreathing, we still have some moments we can use before it will be too late & regret forever.
Please spread this message to those who are still thinking they are going to learn but waiting for a better time, there will be no better time then now.
May Allah swt grant Jannatul Firdous to sister Nazish, make every effort she did in her life to learn Allah swt's deen as sadq-e-jaria for her.

Dawah to Building Residents
Assalamoalaikum wr rb,
Dear Sister Shazia,
I want to share with you a personal experience of doing dawah. Every Ramadan, online student ( mostly 1429 course) here in Dubai, pool in sadaqah money to prepare gift bags before Ramadan for muslims and non- muslims. Each of us distribute them in our neighbour-hood, to friends and relatives. This year I moved to a new location, an apartment building, where there are mostly non-muslims living, since most of the couples are working so there isn’t much interation with them.
I was a bit worried how to distribute bags in an effective way. But Allah SWT put an idea in my heart. I told my huband about it but he was little apprehensive about it. On my insistence he agreed to help. I took a table, well actually it was a cloth rack (have to be innovative), folded it’s sides and cover it with a beautiful table cloth. We took it down at the entrance of the building and the bags, around 20-25 of them.
We took permission from the security person to display the gift bags for that evening, which was given. We then arranged the table and the bags near the side of the entrance. I took a print out and sticked it on the wall behind the display, stating:
Dear All, we want to share the blessings of this month of Ramadan with you, please accept this gift from us. Each bag for non-muslims contained a copy of English translation of Quran,a book on the Prophet SAW and a packet of dates. The muslim’s one had informative books and cards of dua.
We left the bags after asr and my husband went to check upon them just before Maghrib, alhamdulilah all the bags were gone. I was so grateful to Allah SWT that it worked so well. When I shared this experience with my daughter in USA, she suggested to share it with all the students, specially living in Canada and USA. They can do dawah this way in their apptment building and work place. A bouquet of flowers can be added to the display to make it more inviting.
If you think this will benefit and inspire others then forward it.
May Allah SWT accept from us and keep our intentions pure. Ameen
A student of Quran.
