What with murders, wars, theft, fraud, deceipt, infidelity, the rush for instant gratification ... does'nt the world looks like having gone mad. However if you submit to the One and Only God, the Creator and Sustainer of all, the One without any blemish, weakness or relatives, you have nothing to worry about. *** I bear witness that there is no God other than Allah, Lord of the Worlds, unique in His Person and Actions. Allah's peace and blessings be upon Muhammad (the last Messenger and Prophet of Allah) and all those who follow his Sunnah.

Ramadan and Hajj

so today October 10th 2004, I managed to locate al-Fawz academy, a project of an old acquaintence of mine, and attended a dars by Khalilur Rehman Chishti.

I don't remember attending a dars ever.
Jumma Khutbas yes,
what have I missed all my life! Had I built my life around the Quran and Sunnah; had I been to daroos regularly, and had I arranged these at my house, how much richer my life would have been, and how much closer to Allah (swt) I would have been?
whereas today I am too far from Him :(

Ramadan starts in a week's time, and the regular duroos will be at a time when I am at work. Will I be able to make this my best Ramadan, which will still be too short of others' achievements?

can I get leave for itikaaf, and make it? It would be wonderful.
The summary of the dars was in Urdu. I didn't take any notes. One question brought out the fact that since this is ibadaah, we should make dua as much as possible, during Ramadan.

My application for Hajj has been successful in the draw. :) Out of 140,000 applicants a little over 96,000 will perform Hajj with the Hajj arrangements being made by the government, as opposed to private parties, who were allotted 50,000 seats. So the total will be around 150,000 going from Pakistan. Now I need to get myself fit and familiar with it, so I can perform Hajj and it is accepted.

O Allah! help me
Rabbana ateina fiddduniya hasanatan wa fil aakhirati hasanatan wa qina adhaban-naarO Allah!, grant us the best in this world and in the Hereafter
