Asalamu ala`ykum warahamtulah wabarakatuh,

Dear Sister Taslim,I am a total stranger to you ,but for the last couple of months I have been following your blog.And I love it.Your entry on the respected Sheikh Hamza Yusuf was splendid.It honestly made me cry , as I reflected on Allah`s immense mercy for guiding us with Scholars of the like of Sheikh Hamza.May Allah swt increase him in rank, blessings and health.

I feel upset at the comments that were made by the two users.However ,it is important to realise that we live in an age of ignorance.One frequently comes across "ignorant" and "awkward" remarks made against the most esteemed Scholars.Therefore I pray that "silly" comments left on your blog don`t sadden you.

Keep up the good work.
I look forward to "The Noble Man from Zaytuna Part 2" and Part 3 as well. :)

May Allah swt bless you with health and a long life.Insha`Allah.

After reading these lovely comments and emails I wondered to myself how in the world would I ever reply to you guys and your generous sentiments.

Amazingly, now the lessons that we sat in, in Jeddah are available for ordering :-)

So, anyone who wants to know what happened henceforth, you must purchase a set of these fine CDs and listen for yourself. Sit and listen to what our beloved Noble Man from Zaytuna said to us exactly a year ago..

For those of you who have been my long-time supporters and well-wishers throughout my period of ill-health - think for yourself what sitting in these sessions must have done for me and is still doing for me. Myself and fellow Rihla buddies recently reviewed the notes we made in these sessions and I was overwhelmed at how fragile a learner I am. What my being encountered whilst sitting in these sessions was beyond words. And for those of you who know me well enough, you will soon come to realise why I stopped blogging where I did in my entry. This CD set is an amazing tool for anyone who wants to move from point a to point b in their life. It is greatly empowering aswell as informing of where, what and how we are.

God bless Shaykh Hamza Yusuf with health, prosperity and the guidance so he continues to be the torch for us all. Ameen.

Seeking My Spiritual Friends

When you become hopeless
because of isolation,

if you go beneath
the shadow of a spiritual friend

you will become a shining star.

Imam Rumi.


Please remember me in your prayers.

Much love and peace
yours x x x x
