The Road to Divine Speech Seminar

Wow, it sure has been a long time since I've updated anything on this blog here that I feel like I've lost my blogging touch completely. Anyways, here goes nothing. 

Those who know me know how much I have been influenced by ustadh Nouman Ali Khan (refer to this post as to why) so when it was announced that he would be holding his signature Divine Speech seminar here in Malaysia, I was set to go.

I have a few students (seriously love them to death) who are a part of my tadabbur halaqah ; the contents of which are mostly from ustadh Nouman's lectures as well - so if I was to attend the Divine Speech seminar, why not try taking some of them along, I thought.

Of course, the execution of said plan was easier said - or thought - than done. For this very purpose, I had gone to lengths that, for the 5 years of my service, I had never ever gone to. I had to discuss repeatedly with the administration,  made paperworks, find a good yet somehow still affordable accomodation (thanks to my beloved wife for this!), arranged for transport and the list goes on, but when all is said and done, I feel that it was well worth it.

Originally, 10 students wanted to and were supposed to be going with me one just told me today that she had other obligations. Shikata ga nai wa ne... (note to self: need to polish up my rusty Nihongo!)

Now all that's left is to wait for the event itself. 20th of June can't come any sooner. Hopefully everything will turn out as planned. Allahumma yassir wa laa tu'assir :)

Will try to write more on the event itself then. InshaAllah.
