اسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
Alhumdolillah I Rabbil Aalaameen I've got an invitation from 🌹🌹Allah SWT , The Almighty🌹🌹leaving for hajj on Oct 2nd.
Just want to say many thanks to all my great teachers, group incharges, fellow sisters and all Alhuda crew.
First I'm highly thankful to 🌹Allah SWT , WHO showed me the right path,
Then Dear 🌺Ustazah Farhat Hashmi, great inspiration for women,
Dear 🌺Sister Shazia Nawaz.......love to hear her motivational tips, my ears always alerted by her voice,
Dear🌺Sister Rahila.........always amazed by her devotion ,intelligence and time management,
Dear 🌺Sister Nigar, 🌺Sister Farah and 🌺Sister Uzma..............I pray to Allah SWT help me to learn such a mannerable way of talking,
Dear 🌺Sister Afshan........really enjoyed her smiles and sense of humor,
Dear 🌺Sister Aila will always be in our heart, we didn't get chance to learn more from her but no doubt she was an amazing personality
And definitely there would be lots of amazing personalities behind this course, I'm not aware of but greatly thankful to all of them🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺
My 🌺Fellow Sisters.........their participation and typed massages were great learning for me.
Although I was unable to participate much but everyone played a vital role in my whole construction.
I was terribly sick when I decided to join the TQMU course, and Alhumdolillah now I'm free from all sickness.
I've been through different conditions after coming to USA, part of the factors was my loneliness, homesickness, new environment,husbands over work, and when my father died, I've been attacked by deep depression.
Later on I've been diagnosed by Epilepsy, me and my family suffered a lot.In this phase, I can't see my responsibilities of my kids and husband.And most of the time I feel crying, also skipped eating by which I become physically weak and more depressed.
My family said that you've jadoo or nazar.
Every morning I felt such a bad headache, like I would die or might be go to Asylum....Astaghfirulla, never felt fresh.....I tried to do namaz and Quran but not with Shaoor.
Then my friend suggested me to join Tqmu course, I knew I couldn't do it by myself so I registered it.
And when I started listening the tafseer, the reality comes close to me that I'm not thankful to Allah swt.
I remembered when the first time I said Alhumdolillah with Shaoor............I felt like my whole body comes in peace......the peace I was looking for......the relaxation......my whole self was thirsty for.
"Alhumdolillah I Rabbil Aalaameen "
Tears of shame...........tears of guilt.......tears of thanks.......He showed me the things I was not able to look into.
لا اله إلّا انت سبحانك إنّي كنتُ منَ اظّٰلمين
During this course, my mentally, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually construction went on ..........different emotions.......guilt, shame, frustrations, .....although I was getting better but it was a slow process.
My great 🌺teacher Sister Lubna and lovely friend🌺 Sister Zarqa always helped me and pushed me forward, I can't express my love in words for them.
Finally In jan 2013, Alhumdolillah , I become able to stand up to my all responsibilities.
8yrs of Antidepressant , 4yrs of Epilepsy and severe headaches .........all are gone now.....is only a blessing Allah SWT .
I don't have to take any pill, it's just a miracle of Quran and now Allah SWT calling me to clean me completely...
إِنَّ الله غفّورّ رحيم
I'm sorry if I took much time of all sisters. I tried to make my story short.
My great apologies from all of you and specially from the examiner department sisters, because of my late assignments.
Due to hajj preparations, and other things I didn't complete my last 3 weeks tasks. I'll do it insha Allah when I'll come back.
JazakAllahu khaira kaseera for everything sisters💐
May Allah SWT bless you all with best reward in Duniya and Aakhira .Ameen
Pray for me sisters that May Allah SWT accept Hajj from me. Ameen.

Poem: A memory of the TQMU Class of 2010
Safia Qazi (SAFIA-TQMU-TX282)
Very best of 3 years in my life
Assalam o alikum warahmatulahe wabarakatuhu
This is the end of our first weekend without our class .Alhamdullillah without class I am listening to my left tafseer and ustazas lectures 'Mera jina mera merna'.
Its been very best of 3 years in my life in which we learned Qur'aan and Allah's blessing that we completed it as ustaza said nothing is in our hand not our health not our life and not situations...anything would have happened and we could have left the course BUT ALhamdullillah we completed .I am writing here how Quraan and different subjects changed me.
Qur'aan:Amazing...Allah's book is really a book of guidance which touches the heart in fact melts the heart and it showed us the facts,the realities in Aaakhira and our destination JANNAH.It taught me that life should be lead for ALLAH and our every matter should be according to Sunnah.
Book of tahhara: things which I thought are not necessary this book cleared me and how cleanliness should be maintained and Allah loves mutatahirien.
Book of zakat:It showed me how important is to give zakat and how to take out zakat every year
Book of hajj:my first priority was to visit Pakistan,my parents,relatives but after reading this book my priorities changed and now it is to do umrah/hajj Inshaa Allah
Book of namaz: Beautiful. The extra duas made my namaz more concentrated and increased my sense of thinking that Allah is watching my namaz
Uloom ul Quraan: difficult but now I know that how Quraan was collected ,which studies are included in it and all the history about it
Book of aqeeda: Subhan Allah if our believs are not right and then how can we expect to be muslim
Uloom ul hadith:I was so confused about hadith that are zaeef or how would we recognize the accurate hadith but Allah taught me that after Quraan go for sahih Ahadis...too clear
Grammar:very easy and I enjoyed doing it .now I see the word grammatically.
Tajweed:I thaught my tajweed is very good but sorry that was wrong .in this class I learned that actually this is tajweed,and how haram it is we dont care for the makahrij
Mera jina mera merna:amazing ustaza's lecture helped me to think of the ways of how i can i lead my life according to Quraan .....my habits
sadqa o khairaat: i thought that sadqa means maal or time but no its far more than that
Alhamdulillah its all Allah's blessing .All the teachers I learned a lot. May Allah accept it and make us shine like a sun that we spread His message and we all meet in Jannah.
Taqabbal minna wa minkum.
Jazak'Allah khairan katheera
The Big Day
Finally the moment I have been waiting for has come! I am ready to receive my diploma, but have I really given the due Haq? Have I really understood the message of Quran? Have I applied all the orders (Ahkam) of Allah (swt) in my life? Do I really deserve this diploma?
These were the questions coming in my mind.
Now I am also thinking about that big day for which I have to prepare myself for. The day when I can’t go back to correct my deeds. That day all the “test papers” of life will be shown to me. My real intentions behind all A’amal will be shown. Am I ready to face that? Have I prepared enough that I’ll pass on the Day of Judgment? To receive acknowledgement from Allah (swt) that you have passed successfully and you are entitled to enter Jannah.
I pray to Allah (swt) that the happiness we feel this day will match the bliss we will feel on the Day of Judgement
My Journey to the right path
Fortunate are the people whom allah guides and puts them on the straight path and brings them in touch with such enlightened people who can change their lives and pull them from the depths of ignorance to the heights of knowledge.
I am one of them today is the day no matter how much I thank allah, it is not enough that he guided me and brought me to the right people and changed my life completely.
I was a visual artist I made huge paintings and sculptures and was very successful as an art educationist. Art gave me high position when I moved to Abu Dhabi, but there was always a desire inside me to understand quran which I rarely read then.
Oneday my sister gave me Dr farhats cassettes. I also saw Yahya Haroons miracles of quran programes on tv .I became desperate to understand Quran.. My first teacher was Mrs Samina Asad who took classes at her home in Abu Dhabi,she was my first teacher.She had such a soft style of preaching and such intelligent way of convincing that I decided to study Quran,but I did not have time I was working full time as the director at the art education section of cultural foundation.I got cassettes from Samina of Taleem al quran by Dr Farhat Hasmi. Mashallah she has such an excellent command on Arabic language and capability to connect to the students mind immediately her vast knowledge brought me so close to allh sbwt.
I listened to her whole course. I was born again, I broke all my sculpture and ceramics ,destroyed life size paintings quit the job and enrolled in the online class. I was so impressed by the Alhuda team and their hard work .They do not leave any stone unturned to train us .I am a different person now, a more happier content thankful softer, humble and fearing person
I thank my allah who did not leave me in darkness and brought me to light. I am obliged to Madam, her daughter Tamiya zubair and all those who helped in my training. There is still so much to do I have wasted so many best years of my age serving a wrong purpose ,may allah give me time that I compensate for all that. Still I have so many flaws may allh give me the strength to check my self and may all make my children imam of mutaqeen ,.may allah remove from my actions anything he dislikes and add everything he likes. ameen
The peak of my life
It has been a year since I finished the course but Allah swt has given me many opportunities to pass the message to others in the commumity.
Last year in Ramadhan I got involved with the Reality Touch programme that Al-Huda UK had organised- alhamdolillah it was a true success as many youth had been awaiting for many years for something in English to be set up in the UK- it was overwhelming to see the difference in many students in the 4 weeks of the course- how the quran had touched their hearts too.
Once you are connected with the quran then everything else seems meaningless- alhamdolillah I enrolled for the hadith course last october which is so enriching as I find the quran was my theory and the hadith is my practical.
I have also been given the opportunity to be GI chg for tquk diploma which is so essential for my revision and also have started quran classes at home for working mums.
This strength could never be acquired if I had not learnt about time management from the course I did and without the help of Allah all this could never have been achieved.
May we all be the sadqa e jariyah for our wonderful teachers and alHuda.
I pray that this quran remains
our sincere companion and this light remains with us in this world and the
hereafter. I truly feel that this is the peak of my life!
Taleemul Quran English Course 2009
“……….Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near”
A year has passed since my most rewarding, most satisfying, and most memorable academic experience came to an end. Those 18 months were the best time of my life in each and every aspect. It seemed such a colossal target when I was embarking on this journey and I am sure all the other students share the same feeling. There was a constant bombardment of questions like “How will this happen? Will I be able to complete the course? Will I be able to meet all the requirements? How will I balance home and studies? How will I be able to fulfill my other commitments? Whether my family members are aware of the enormity of this commitment or not?”
But here I am, ALHAMDULILLAH, all tests and assignments submitted, all requirements fulfilled and a full year has elapsed. How did it happen?…………… EVENING classes 5 days a week, with a husband and 2 little children and other family commitments. The answer is very simple………………… Allah(SWT) helped me.
If I were to mention one gift out of the innumerable gifts Taleem al Qur’an gave me, it would be the firm conviction that the help of Allah is near and that, it is enough for me. All I have to do is make my intention pure for Allah (SWT), do the best I can, avoid complaining, and expecting from people, and discuss all my issues with the One who is All-Hearing, All-Knowing, All-Wise, the Entirely-Merciful and the Especially Merciful, and be patient. And this conviction did not come overnight, it took me 18 months to learn that I must do the required, for the help of Allah to come. There have been countless occasions during TQ when my mind completely failed me as to give a solution to balancing home and studies. I just could not understand how it would work out. I fretted, made dua and must have also complained in the beginning, expecting others to understand, but then Allah(swt) showed me a way out of it. Slowly and gradually, I learnt the formula with the tawfeeq of Allah. I had to shove away the complaining and expecting part as what I was doing was for Allah solely, and when Allah(swt) is there to hold you, there is no point of complaining and having expectations from others.
We all understand what level of commitment TQ requires. And Shaitan leaves no opportunity to make our footsteps falter. And it becomes worse when the most crucial people in our family whose support is our strength are not with you. My husband was not very enthusiastic about this course, but I had been doing istikhara all along, and my heart and mind were completely set on going ahead with it. The course offered everything I had been yearning for, the duration, the medium of instruction, the classroom atmosphere, the wide range of subjects, everything was simply perfect. My worst fear was that if I leave it now, Allah(SWT) may not give me another chance. This fear kept me going. I cannot be unjust by not mentioning that my husband did everything he could to ease the new routine for me, but I could tell that he was disturbed. It went on like that for a couple of weeks or so, when one very beautiful day, he said to me, “Maryam, I love what you are doing, I am so happy that you are doing this course”. ………...I could not believe my ears. I did not realize at all when and how this change came. I had been touched by Allah’s mercy at so many moments by now, but this was the climax. It was perhaps the first time that it struck me with such an impact that Allah’s promises were true. Promises of help, ease, mercy, tranquility, barakah and so much more. And this conviction reached new heights with every major obstacle throughout the course.
Whether it was taking the entire class everyday, preparing for the tests, submitting them on time, giving time to family and friends, household chores, shopping, travelling, etc. I could feel Allah(swt)’s special mercy and help with me. I never went for umrah so often before as I did during the course, once in each term Alhamdulillah. There were commitments that I could not avoid at any cost, and I still get amazed by thinking about how Allah(SWT) made everything work out so smoothly. It was not that the milestones became a piece of cake all of a sudden, rather the schedule was extremely tough, the deadlines constantly rang in the mind, but there was a reassurance at the back of mind that Allah(SWT) is there, and He will never leave me, as long as I do my part.
Everything that we used to do before the course, as a family, continued throughout the course. Nothing stopped but the modus operandi changed to the better and Allah(SWT) guided me towards it. If I used to go for grocery once a week before the course, I started going once in two weeks and my husband happily brought what was needed in between. If I used to visit several malls exploring innumerable shops to get things for my children, I started sticking to the tried and true. Somehow I would get to know about the sales, and my husband and I would fix one or two weekends and we would finish our entire shopping for the next season. Our minds would be at rest, I remember very clearly that we would get the best bargains, things of our choice and a lot of our time would be saved. And all this was possible because Allah was looking after our needs while we were busy learning His Deen, and who can look after our needs better than Him. Allah taught me better ways to manage my life, to maintain a balance between my responsibilities and to remember that He is there all the time.
May Allah(SWT) give us the tawfeeq to remember whatever we learnt in TQ forever and act upon it. May Allah continue to shower His blessings on all of us and keep us in His special protection. Aameen

Quran is better than what they are collecting
هُوَ خَيْرٌ مِّمَّا يَجْمَعُونَ
Alhamdulillah,I am glad that we have the opportunity to share our feelings how Quran has change our life.
I would say that Quran has not changed my life but Allah has given me new life through Quran
When Allahswt wants to give hadiyah to anyone it doesn’t matter where you are, he finds a way. Like my example, in 2000 one of my friend from Pakistan came for visit, she gave me some cassette of Ustazah, the more I listen the more I understood and I realize that what I am doing in the name of religion is not from Quran And Sunnah. I prayed to Allah to show me the right path, old habits difficult don’t die easily, but it is not impossible with the help of Allah.
Eventfully I started taking classes as a listener, the more I listened the more research I did, Alhamdulillah the closer I came to Allah, now everywhere I go, every creature I see, I see Allah in it.
Quran gave me Allahs Maarifat and azmat, worldly things does not bother me anymore or make me envy of people that have worldly things.
Alhamdulillah Quran gave me confidence and happiness and satisfaction. I feel I am the richest person in this world, I have Quran in my life, when I feel lonely Quran gives me company like a good friend. Gives me satisfaction and fills my heart with pleasure.
I used to let little things bother me and make me cry, now I read Quran and that brings tear to my eyes. Alhamdulillah I have no fear of any human but Allah. When any calamity touches me I realize I might have done something wrong so I do tuba and asked forgiveness from Allah with this Ayah لَّا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا أَنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ
If there is any loss I recite إِنَّا لِلَّـهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
Alhamdulillah I have more balance in my life as far as Hoqooq ul Allah and Hoqooq ul abad. I do not have any expectations from anyone except Allah.
Alhamdulillah I have no sorrow And worries of this world but Aakhirah
Alhamdulilah Quran gives me all this positive attitude, Quran is a miracle once we taste it we cannot live without it. I wish I could feed Quran to everyone so that can bring happiness in their life.
Doa aalam say kerti hay beganaa dil ko
Aajb chez hay lazat e aashnaee
I have no words but thanks to Allahswt and for Ustazah who connected me with Allah through Quran. May Allah give her best rewards in both worlds, and also I am very thankful to all who worked hard to spread Allahs deen and make easy for us to learn Quran in the comfort of our homes.
I love you all for the sake of Allah
My wish is to follow what I have learned and teach others
My Allahswt give us all istiqamat in his path, Aameen
Zindagi mai kya tabdeeli aae? (Urdu)
As salaam o alaikum wa rehmatullahi wa barkatuhu,
1. Quran padhne se mere zindagi mai kya tabdeeli aae?
Quran ke saath mere zindagi ka ahem daur april 2008 mai shuru hua.Alhamdulilah!Allah ka shukar hai usne mujhe teen-age mai Quran se joda.ye mere zindagi ka ahem mod tha, Suna tha quran insaan ko badal deta hai,ye khud mehsoos bhi kia. Alhamdulilah ya Rabbil aalameen!! Quran seekhne k baad maine ye tabdeeli mehsoos ki:meri guftugu mai Allah ka zikar aur shukar aagaya,maslan,"thank you"-jazak Allah khair mai badal gaya aur "your welcome"- waiyyakum mei.kai buri aadate chut gai,Allah ne hijaab ki taufeek di,Sabar par milte hue ajar k pata chalne par sabar karna aasaan laga.Apne aap mai badlaav mehsoos hua jo shayad mai bayaan na kar pau.Quran padhkar mai mature hogae :)
2.Padhne k dauraan koi aisa wakiya jo Quran se mutallik ho...
Quran se judkar aisa lagta hai ki mano quran humse batein kar raha hai. Mujhe ek waqt mehsus hua ki,mai is surah se wakif hu, isme mere mutallik to koi baat nahi, par usi din ki tafseer ki class mai,kuch aisi ayah saamne aagai aur ustazah mano mera hi haal bayaan kar rahi thi,SubhanAllah!! Mai to sajde mai gir padi aur Allah ka shukar ada kia is muajise k liye. Rishtedaro mai koi nagawaar batein hojati hai to surah furqan ki ayah no.20 yaad aati: "waja alna ba'dakum li ba'din fitnah.Atasbiroon.wa kaana rabbuka baseera"-aur banaya tummese baaz ko baaz k liye fitnah.kya sabar karte ho? Aur hai tera rabb dekhta..
Quran ne hamesha meri rehnumai ki.
5. Naye aane wale shagirdo k liye koi achi baat??
Online quran seekhna bahut aasaan par saath hi mushkil bhi hai. Computer sabse bada aazmaish ka zariya bana mere liye,kabhi internet problem kabhi light ka problem,kuch mushkil aane par sabar karna chahiye aur kabhi quit na kare,the end result is all worth of your hard work and dedication inshaAllah. teachers aur incharges bahut supportive aur motivating hai aur unki mehnat se hamare liye aasaaniya hoti hai..Allah unhe behtareen jaza e khair ata kare aur hamein unke liye sadka e jaria banaye.Aameen.

May peace and blessings of God be with you,

ALHUMDU LIL LA HI RABBIL AALAMEEN for everything in my life and than choosing me among those who could gain ultimate guidance. Qur'an has literally brought me from darkness to light. This is no doubt the biggest blessing of ALLAH swt upon me. HE knows that I am a very sinful person but HE soaked me with His Rahma. I am a totally different person today. I look at this world with a totally different vision. The definitions of grief and happiness are different for me today.At the moment, I am totally at loss with words. Words are such poor carriers of emotions. I am very much an introvert person but today I want to open my heart, so that people could know what ALLAH SWT has bestowed upon me. When I joined in, i just wanted to understand Qur'an in its own language. I didn't know I am in for a never ending treasure of "kher". I just took one step and ALLAH SWT ran towards me to take the burden off my shoulders. I fell in love with my RABB, RABUL AALAMEEN, HIS Messenger, Muhammad sal lal lahu alayhi wassalam and this most wonderful and beautiful book of all times, Qur'an. This love has become the base of love for me with any other relation in my life. My RABB HAS blessed me with the greatest blessing in this world. Qur'an has become my lifeline now!
I make special dua for Nazish Jabeen, a former student of al Huda and now a group incharge from California who introduced me with this program. May ALLAH SWT grant her high levels of Jannah, aameen. Next, My abundant and sincere prayers for our beloved Ustahza. Everyone knows her commitment and her continuous struggle for putting Qur'an in every hand and in every heart. What I found most amazing is her style of doing tafseer. So many times, I felt her like a mother who is guiding her children so lovingly. My dua for her that may she be in Jannah with our mother AISHA R.A. Since inspired by her, our Ustahza followed her footsteps and teach Deen to Muslims. I also sincerely pray for Sir Zubair,Shazia Baji, Sister Asma and Sister Husna, Sister Aila and all those who helped us in our recaps, who checked our tests, who handled the technical part. I am very grateful to all of you. I can't say how thankful I am. I pray to ALLAH SWT to give you all best reward for all your efforts, aameen.
I want to give mubarak particularly to my group fellows and in general to all the class fellows. This should not be an end of the journey.Rather, it should be a begining. We have to learn more and than help others to learn. While doing so, we have to remember we were dealt very lovingly in this class. We have to be very conscious of shaitan and his tools. Our teachers were so humble and polite. We have to make sure that we do not fall victim to shaitan and assume arrogance. May Qur'an be a "hujjat" in our favor and not against us on the Day of Jufgement, aameen.
I am very grateful to my husband, my three beautiful kids and my sisters. Their co operation and support so many times, made things easier for me. Today two of my sisters have also joined alHuda. I have also registered my older son and my daughter with al Huda in English correspondence course. They are in high school and together we squeeze out time to do our Qur'an study. May ALLAH SWT help them and make it possible for them to finish their Quran with sister Taymiya, aameen.
I have one big regret that I could not do justice to my course. May ALLAH SWT forgive me for that. May ALLAH SWT help me to justly do my further study of Qur'an. May ALLAH swt make us all fulfill all the five rights of Qur'an: to believe in it,to read it, to understand it, to practice it and to teach it to others, aameen.
wassalam: shazia bhatti
Quran has changed my life for the better that I dont find any other thing more interesting that this. I feel like going deeper and deeper into it to understand its meaning. I want to implement each and every bit of it in my life. I started the course when my elder daughter was one and a half years and I gave birth to another girl in between who is now MashaAllah two and a half years old. I want to make sure I can gift this Quran to my girls. I want to bring up my girls as Sadqa Jariya by teaching them its meaning and helping them implement it in their lives & into their amal. InshaAllah. I sometimes think if I had been lazy and not done this course thinking that I have 2 small girls to look after I would have been a loser...Allah has given me this Knowledge just in time to pass it on to my girls. Now I am a better mother and a better daee. Alhamdollillah. So if you have small kids make an effort to do this course, Allah will make it easy for you at every step like he did for me.
Perfect Solutions every week!
I would like to begin by thanking Allah swt for granting me this privilege, and for choosing me to comprehend His magnificent deen ALHUMDULILLAH. “O my Lord! Grant me taufeeq to thank You for all the Bounties which You have Bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and (help me to) do good deeds that may win Your favor. And make my offspring righteous as well. Indeed, I seek Your Forgiveness. And indeed I am one of the Muslims (Al-Ahqaaf: 15).”
I have always found guidance through Quran, for which I was certain to find a precise solution to the tiniest problem I came across during the week. Thus, I would come to class with the intension of finally finding an answer. I would surely find a simple but rather prefect solution that I would not have been able to find elsewhere. For instance, for many situations I would learn the value of patience and how beneficial it is to simply let the things be as they are, to be patient, and to completely rely on Allah. During tafseer sessions, it seemed as if the Quran was addressing me directly, and whatever Ustaza said was directed towards me. I felt relieved, and at times tasted the sweetness of remembering Allah in a big gathering of Taleem-ul-Quran, Alhumdulillah.
I am so grateful of being able to complete this wonderful journey of Taleem-ul-Quran. Despite the bliss and joy of completing this journey, my heart was pounding with sadness and fear ever since we started 30 juz, as the verse: Al yawma akmaltu lakum deenakum wa atmamtu alaikum ni3mati……..“This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion (Al Ma’idah 3)” kept resounding in my head, as if someone was constantly reciting this verse over and over again in my ears. I am fearful of the fact that since I have learned to whole Quran, I bear the responsibility of not only acting upon it, but spreading it first through my ikhlaaq, and then by teaching it. I am saddened upon the thought of not having our early morning groups anymore followed by our auspicious class of Taleem-ul-Quran. However, after hearing Shazia baji announce the upcoming courses planned especially for us, my heart was overjoyed, and I began praying to Allah that He gives me the taufeeq, endurance, and steadfastness to benefit from the new courses as well InshaAllah.
Now, I would like to thank every single person involved in making it possible for all of us in obtaining the knowledge of Quran through the comfort of our own homes.
First and foremost, my dearest Ustaza, merely thanking you for your tremendous favor of providing us the precious knowledge of Quran, filling our hearts with love of no other than of Allah (swt), and for mending and correcting our aqeedah will not do justice. Therefore, I ask Allah to not only bestow His grace, mercy, and love upon you and your family, but also to bless you with good health, a long fruitful life, and immense happiness of this and the next world Ameen Ya Rabb.
I do not have words to thank you, Shazia baji, for patiently being with us, teaching us, and correcting our mistakes. Allah gave you the taufeeq of starting a Quran class on Paltalk; therefore, may Allah reward you for each and every one of our accomplishments in this world and many times more in the hereafter, and may He give all of us the taufeeq to do likewise ameen.
Special thanks goes to Husna baji for teaching us the most essential knowledge of reciting the Quran with tajweed. May Allah give you abundant reward for every letter of Quran that each and every one of us recites as long as we live ameen. Afterwards, I would like to thank, from the depth of my heart, the outstanding team of Alhuda, including our incharges, who made this virtual learning experience come alive. Thus, I appreciate every single one of Alhuda team’s efforts in not only providing this opportunity, but also for striving to make every second of our learning experience real, valuable, and worthwhile.
I would also like to thank our dearest group in charges Farhat Saeeyuddin and Bushra Shaukat. Farhat Aunty was our first group in charge, and at that time our group was called the Zaid group. Thank you so much for providing the needed help, for cooperating with us tremendously at the beginning, and for making the processes of learning easy for us. Afterwards, we were blessed by having Bushra apa as our next group incharge, as despite her busy schedule, she never failed to be in our group, called Sadiqaat group, early in the morning, and also in effectively and punctually operating Taleem-ul-Quran’s Paltalk room.
Lastly, my sincere thanks goes to all of my beloved group members for doing “wa-ta-wasaw bil haqqi, wa-ta-wasaw- bis-sabr (surat Al-Asr). You all were a great motivational drive for keeping me steadfast on this journey.
KHAIRAN KATHEEEEEEERAH TO ALL OF YOU!!!! MAY ALLAH REUNITE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF
US IN JANNAT-UL-FIRDAUS AMEEN YA RABB THUMMA AMEEN.

چھوٹ گئے سب کام اور لپکی ميں کمرے کو

اک خاص تڑپ جو اس آواز ميں پائی ميں نے
ھو گيا وقت أب ہماری الھدا کی کلاس کا
ہاتھ ميں قلم اور آگے قرآن و کاغذ ،
مری روح کو کيا صاف تو نے
اک اک ايت نے دکھايا آئينہ مجھ کو
ميں کس قدر گناہ گار ھوں سمجھي ميں اب
راہ ديکھا کر راہ منزل پر کھرا کر ديا تو نے
تربيت جو کی إس أنداز سے ميری تو نے
جس سے تعمير ھوا ميرے اندر وجود نيا
ميرا دين تھا ميرے بزرگوں کی سوچ کی حد تک
دنيا وي چاہتوں ميں تھی ميں سمجھتی جاہل ان کو
کر ديا تو نے اپنے انداز سوچ کو تبديل
اپنے ھوئے قريب يہ حکمت آئی کہاں سا
راہ خدا تو ہے کوئی مانگے تو سہی
وہ ڈھوڈنے والے کو دنيا ئنی ديتا ہے
17 Practical Lessons from Surah Fatiha
1- Teach myself how to be grateful in many ways
2- Work on building attitude of gratitude all life long
3- If you want barakah in blessings...be grateful
4- You've got to say and show gratitude to people as well
5- Rabbil Alameen... this puts me in my place, gives me perspectives on things. i am just a tiny particle in many huge alameen (worlds), so aur jhuk kar chalain (be more humble)
6- And yet Allah pays attention to me as He only can to each and every minute detail and smallest creature.....so Allah is my/our Rabb
7- Rahman, Raheem... lots of hope for me in this world and akhira
8- Mercy and Kindness are necessary if I want to convey this message of Islam to anyone, as even Allah mentions it in this opening surah. So be gentle and kind on many levels, again and again, as much as you can.
9- Reality is that accountability does come one day....(like in yawm id deen or in this world too) so for instance when dealing with myself or my kids, spell out the consequences of actions along with the gentle and kind reminders....
10- Life is simplified by iyyaka na'budu wa iyyaka nastaeen...clear cut simple solution to all issues....worship/obey only Him and seek only His help
11- However, i find it very hard to even practice the above simple concept everyday. Why?
12- Alhamdulilah for the sirat mustaqeem given to us by Allah in Quran/HAdth/ Deen
13- I feel Rushk (praiseworthy envy) for those whom Allah Himself has called AnAmta Alayhim, ....they have already Passed the tests of life with flying colors, how great they were...they tread a difficult path.
but where will I stand? I slip everyday. But Allah is my Rabb who gives hope for guidance.
14- Maghdoob and Dawleen....i must keep a watch out for these people's characteristics in myself....rather than only in others
15- Allah has given us a life plan in Surah Fatiha.....at the risk of copying (from Weight Watchers) i think we can call this plan Worth Watchers....like what is my Worth, and the Worth of my actions in front of Allah and on Yawm id Deen
16- Read surah Fatiha in namaz like the strong dua it is....not just rush it!
17- The Quran now enfolds after surah fatiha..... and the journey of self discovery will begin, inshaAllah. So, Pay Attention and Follow in deeds.
Reaching the finish line, Online!
All praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Heavens, The Lord of the Earth and the Lord of the Worlds. To Him belongs Greatness throughout the Heavens and the Earth, And He Alone is the Al Mighty, the All Wise.
Allhumdullilah that Allah has chosen all of us, you and I to do this course which ends today, but it is truly a new beginning, a lifelong journey. Al Huda created the perfect environment for learning the Quran in so much detail! For this I thank every teacher, staff and support team, especially the online staff. May Allah reward you all.
Often times, when I told people I am doing this course ONLINE, everyone would say WOW, that needs so much commitment. Its true, doing the course online, has its up and downs. You can’t see the teacher, you can’t see the students, plus there is a huge time difference and all you can only see is yourself and the laptop screen! But SubhanAllah, I learned that it does not matter where you are or how you are studying or what the mode of studying is… what matters is giving in your 100 %. Allah has given us these precious eyes to and a mind to picture the scene of the classroom so perfectly! So, if you can concentrate and shut the doors to Shaiytan’s Wasawah (and don’t care about the huge 8 hour TIME difference), anything can be done. Allhumdullilah, through Inspeak, myself and a group of very dedicated students were able to reach the finishing line, only because we WANTED to do it and Allhumdullilah for the help of Allah and support of my Group Hafsah!
From this experience, besides striving to become a better person, striving for the Fawzul Azeem, Jannah, Inshallah, with the help of Allah, ONE THING which I will Always Remember is that each one of us has to present their resume in front of Allah, and if it only reflects our accomplishments in Dunya, we are at a great loss. 18 months ago, after finishing my BBA, I wanted to do something different, something which will help me in the Akhirah and after 18 months I can say that I have started focusing on my resume for Akhirah, Bizinillah. May Allah help us and accept all our efforts and guide us at each step of our lives. Once again Jazakallah Khair to EVERYONE at Al Huda, I am not physically present there, but I can feel the excitement J Walakumasalam

inna ma al usri yusraa
is mubarak moqay par bas yehi khena cahongi kay yaqeen nahi aa raha kay kis tarah mukammal hua yeh safar.
meray liya yeh ayat us ki tarjumani karti
maa adraaka mal aqaba.
yeh safar dushwar guzar ghati say kam naa tha. pehlay saal josh may kat giya doosra bhi asaan thaa teesray saal bhut mushkilaat aai. magar aakhri saal
inna ma al usri yusraa. par yaqeen ayaa. kis tarah yeh safar kata samaj hi nahi aya. yeh Allah hi ki mehrabaani thi
us nay yeh itna bara kaam kara diya.
aik waqt us safar may aisa tha kay may bilkul Quran chornay ka soch chuki thi. har taraf say mukhlifat thi.
family, friends, husband sab yehi kehtay kay itna lamba course, kab tak chalay gaa. kabhi kabhi yaad bhi nahi hota group may aor aasaiy hi lesson sunaati. magar
aaj yeh realize kara kay woh naa karti to aaj yaha nahi hoti. us kushi kaa ahsaas naa kar paati jo ab us waqt ho rahi hai.
jo anmol johar 30 paray may milay us say mehroom ho jaati, bas agay aanay walo aur apni sab saathiyo say yehi guzaarish hai kai ab is Quran kaa saath na chootnay pai.
us ko chor kar aisa lagta hai kai kuch kami hai. tashnagi hia. koi cheez adhori hia, kisi cheez ki talash hai jo sirf us kitaab say milti hai.
sirf aik dafa irada kar kay Allah say madad mangay aur dekhay kay Allah kis tarah karwaata hia.
beech may aisay waqt ainay jab saaray siray chootnay lagangay, sab darwazay band honnay laganingay magar aik cheez aap ko taahm lay gi
woh bus Quran aur us say musalsal taluq. jab bhi quran say doori hui apni zaat may aik tashnagi si lagi. aik kami bhut ziyada mehsoss hui
abhi amal ki manzilat say bhut door hoon magar us kay bigair jeena kaa tasawur bhi mahaal lagta hai. yeh taluq bhi Allah ka tuhfaa hai. Allah karay yeh martay dam tak qaim rahay. aur sab ko yeh
mehsoss karnay ki saa' dat milay. Ameen.
a small poem
jab bhi chora Quran to aisa laga kay sans thum gai hai
naa milay jis din yeh dawa to lagta hia kay dunya ujar gai hai
kuch kho saa giya hia. kuch thum sa giya hia
aaik tinkay ki tarha say bayshara thi yeh rooh
rait kay zarron ki tarah sar gardaan thi har soo
mila jo yeh kalam to mili rooh ka panah
milay bhut say sawalon kay jawaab
hui bhut si aarzoan mukammal
Mili us rab ki marfat ki aik jhalak
agar naa milay Quran saari rahay anjaan hai zamanay may
aik alag hi hai maza us kalam ko panay may
i want to thnak all the Taleem ul Quran team , my teacher and all the staff for giving me this opportunity.

to the rewards of JENNAH....
Before I studied the Quran, my eyes were closed
Then an evil aroma arose
The smell of shaytaan filled my nose
But I did not fear, for I knew Allah was here
The prophet (SAW) taught us to recite Quran
And before you know it, Shaytaan will be gone.
But I felt blind, reciting these verses
I did not understand what I was saying, to get rid of
So I studied in depth, Taleem-Al-Quran
As I sat alone, dusk to dawn.
I suddenly felt, my eyes being opened
The curse of my blindness, swiftly being broken.
I saw through these holy words, how the world was
As layer by layer was laid
All through the course of 7 days
And now, tears of despair flood through my eyes
Followed by sadness, and helpless cries
I pity those who have gone astray,
Those who do wrong things, day by day
They have all fallen from their path
And will soon regret it, as they face Allah’s wrath
These words of god, were sent as a guide
By which we Muslims, must abide
And best of all
These are the words that changed my life.

Blessing of Unity
Dear Sister Shazia,
Alhumdulillah we have completed our 1429 Quran course and a very important thing which I have learned is Unity.
Before I joined this course I used to listen to Ustaza's tafseer on my own but it seemed like a never ending cause.I had an aim of completing the Quran with meaning and tafseer which I feel is the need of every soul,but I had no direction and motivation.But when you have a strong determination Allah makes things easy for you and guide you to the right path and send for you such people who become your supporters and helpers.
In our case(students of UAE) Allah SWT sent Sis Samitah,who guided us and joined us to the online 1429 course.In the beginning we started as small different groups Hafsa,Adam,Ayoub but alhumdulillah now it seems as if we are all one.We know each other,love each other for Allah's sake and supported each other in all the trials and troubles throughout the course which was very important for its completion.The credit of bringing us together goes to Sis.Samitah's leadership and sense of responsibility.She made things lined up in the best direction alhumdulillah.
We want to thank you Sis.Shazia for your efforts in organizing this course and all our online teachers and staff(Sis.Humera,Afshan,Ayla,Sabahat).Also the ones who were behind it and we never knew about them.Last but not the least our examination dept team,specially Rabia Nadeem who helped us in the completion of this course.

True Relationship with the Quran
I just wanted to say "I just love the AlHuda course" mashAllah...you get practical lessons for your daily life every single class....and you can achieve the relationship with the Quran that you always wanted...
No more Barriers
"For years and in different stages of my
life I kept looking and hoping to somehow find an avenue to study the Quran and
know for myself what the Quran says. Alhamdolillah, finally, in Jan of 2009 I
embarked on the journey of learning the Quran at Alhuda, and without a
doubt I can say that this past year has been the best year of my life. I
testify to the fact that Allah swt made each step easier for me, put more
barakah in my time, changed my heart, removed my language barrier from the
Quran and given me sooo much more than I can express in words.
