Three Day Workshop
" Discover Yourself "

YOU NEVER GET WHAT YOU EXPECT!!!
YOU ONLY GET WHAT YOU INSPECT!!!


RIGHTEOUS LIVING IS A SKILL

In spite of being well educated and proficient in our  respective fields of activity, we succumb eventually to the  stress and strain of life when faced with challenges.  The reason for this is that the education we receive is woefully inadequate in helping us deal with life itself. It only provides us with the information necessary to work in a particular field of our choice. But righteous living is a skill, a technique.  One need to learn and practise it just as to be a good sportsman or musician or a doctor involves regular practice and perseverance.

Yet, very few of us look at the act of righteous living as a skill.  As a result, we remain stunted, with an extremely  narrow vision limited to our petty, mundane existence and its innumerable worries and anxieties.  We end up missing the larger picture. Steeped in ignorance, we continue to live, oblivious to the purpose for which we have been created.

This Universe is governed by a Divine Law that holds its functioning together. we must learn to understand the functioning of that Law and our role in it. Without the knowledge of these fundamental issues, we become confused and deluded in life. And then we scumb to the pressures of various challenges. We too can be successful, armed with this knowledge, in gaining the vision of life's mission, and acquire mental stamina necessary to discharge our duties and responsibilites in life. we can then live a puposeful life, fulfilling the Will of Allah.

47- THREE-DAY WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN

HELD AT: QUWATHUL ISLAM COMPOSITE JUNIOR COLLEGE

ON: 16, 17, 18 SEPTEMBER 2004

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

Fareed: This was a good experience for me to participate in this workshop. It has changed my lifestyle, way of living, way of speaking, and way of behaving. I could not believe that this workshop could change my life and I see changes in my parents also. I am now able to concentrate on my namaz and studies.

Syeed: After attending this workshop I have totally changed myself. I have started going to namaz and not wasting my time going out with my friends. Since 3 years, I could not stop smoking, but now I have stopped smoking. I have become sincere and truthful and started respected my elders. My parents are very happy. I am in peace now. I started loving people.I will get 90% and above Inshah Allah in the II PUC.

Tousir: My College has given me a lifetime’s achievement by holding this workshop. I was not a helpful and happy person, but this workshop has really changed my life. By looking at my changes my parents, brothers and friends are surprised and they too want to be like me. They have expressed what a miracle has happened in my life. Seeing me changed, my parents have also changed. On the first day I thought the workshop will be boring and I cannot achieve anything. Now I can say I have wasted my 16 years of my life. I was irresponsible, mischievous, used bad language and disobedient to my elders. After these three golden days I have come out from darkness to light. I have achieved everything what I required in these three days. I declare that in my II year PUC I will get 92%.

Akbar: I had no confidence in my life and was always worried about the future and there were many problems at home. I could not concentrate on studies. I was just stunned and shocked that there was so much of falsehood in our mind and hatred for others. After attending the workshop I felt that I am on top of the world. I had stage and examination fear and this was removed on the last day. Those three days were the golden days for me.

Ahmed: Before attending this workshop I was like an animal not talking to any one at home. I was in my own world, disobeying parents, finding fault with my brother and sister or cousin. I was rude. Most of the time I am out of my home. My parents used to scold me a nd I felt they never loved me. After attending this workshop I realised my mistakes and started to respect and obey my parents. I am now trying to be a good son. I am very good with my brothers and my sister. I will be the best student in the college. By attending this workshop my life has become a heaven.

Shamir: This workshop is beautiful and beneficial. It helped me to shed my guilt and be sincere and responsible. As usual whenever I enter my house I will be tired and angry shouting at my sister, brother and my mother. I had the bad habit of not studying in the house. My father always said I was lazy, irresponsible, and not kind to others. These three days in the workshop are the golden days, as it changed my life. My father could not believe that I have changed. I did all the work before he said. I am studying for 2 hours. I could concentrate on my studies and in my namaz. I had the bad habit of teasing and calling nicknames, after this workshop I have stopped and it is really a miracle in my life.

Mujeeb: I was leading a different life before attending this workshop. I did not know what the workshop is all about? After attending the workshop I came to know who I am? What are my values? Before I had attended many jamats and was unable to get their points. Just I use to hear them but here, the coach is so good that he made us understand each and every point. People learn, know and experience the way of life after reaching the age of 50 to 60 years but I gained every thing at this teen age only. On 16th August I changed my life completely. My family is shocked and asked me what had happened to me? I discovered myself. I am very much thankful to my coach.

Nayeem: Before attending the workshop my life was a puzzle. Whenever I returned home after college I used to scold my mother and fight with my sister. I had stage fear. I loved a girl who was beautiful and she refused me and I even attempted to cut my hands to inscribe her name. Now Alhamdulillah I have come out of this and am free. After the workshop I did every thing and I did not fight or scold, my life at home is really a heaven. I have over come fear. I go home at the right time and do my homework. I have a firm determination to be a doctor and I declare that I will get 95% in my II PUC. I will be the Khalifa of Allah. Our coach is really a big ideal. He has committed himself to transform our lives and I have committed myself to transform my life and others.

Murshed: We have come to know what is life, how we have to live our life. We have got most precious knowledge from which we can make difference not only to our life but also in others. After attending the workshop I have not only taken control of my life but have also changed my outlook. When I use to go home before it was a living hell. From past two days it is just as a heaven. Every one is happy and has peace. I thank Sadathullah for providing this workshop and made a drastic change in my life. I wish the change that occurred to me should occur to each and every human being then this world would also be a heaven. Once again I thank you for providing such a marvelous workshop and opening our eyes at the right time. We are very thankful to you.

Khader: Before attending the workshop I was a disobedient child, lazy, stubborn, never used to share any feelings with others, irresponsible and I never lived in peace nor let my family members live in peace. I created tension but now I am a totally changed person. Now as soon as I enter home I greet them. Now I help my parents in their work. I do not find faults in others. I have made a strong determination that I will get above 95% in my II PUC. Now I have concentration in all subjects. This was a wonderful experience in my life. I was in darkness and this workshop has brought light in my life. I have discovered myself.

All the topics that where taught here I was knowing earlier but I was not knowing how to apply them in life. Now I got to know and Inshahallah I will apply to change my life. I thank Touheed Education for holding this workshop.

MADIHA: Before the workshop I used to get angry very soon, for silly reasons I was fighting and after the workshop my whole life has been changed.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

SIDDIQUE: I came just to watch the proceedings all the way from Ganguli. I had my own fears whether this will be of any use to me. On the first day itself I found it to be extremely beneficial. Your presentation and interpretation of Surah  Al- Asr, in particular is simply beautiful. How much I wish my both the sons had attended this workshop. If anyone asks me how was the workshop, I can say it in one word that it is fantastic. I can only say, Thank you. Keep it up.

OMAIS: Before this workshop my character, my behaviour was not as good as it is after the workshop. When anyone teases me I get angry very fast, I do not care any body, neither give respect nor expect it. I would not leave anybody if they say any thing bad about me. But after attending this workshop I came to know who I am? What I want to be? Which characters make my future a success?  I got concentration in my namaz. I shall listen and judge no one.

RAQUEEB: I got many things from this workshop. In this workshop I gained an attitude of forgiveness. After attending I came to know my mistakes and to recommit to rectify them.

SAMEER: I have never attended any workshops. This is my first workshop and I am fully satisfied with it. Before this workshop I used to judge the situation and also judge others. I now realized that judging others is wasteful.  I have now taken the path of truth and forgiveness. I have experienced happiness and freedom. I am very thankful to the organizers for providing us such a vast opportunity to “Discover our self”.

ISMAIL: Firstly I want to tell that I got so many things from this workshop, which I did not get in any other type of programme or function.  I came to know anything is possible if I am willing to do it.  Now I can control the bad habits and myself. We can improve our self and also make our families as good as possible. I am very thankful to you for conducting this programme. Please conduct this workshop regularly as much as possible.

ABUL BAYAN: My experience is that this workshop is not only beneficial to me but also to our family members whom I shared about the workshop. My life is changed. Firstly I thank Allah and you because you have given Qurbani to help the young generation who are the future of this community. I am giving up all my bad habits and take on good habits.

YASEEN: In this workshop I could improve my concentration in namaz. I could control anger and also forgive others. I choose to be truthful, forgiving and Merciful. I shall apply what I learnt daily. I also came to know who is Allah? I am willing to give up anger, pride, jealousy, telling lies etc.

UZAIR:  By attending this workshop I gained confidence. I found myself as a human being. Now I can say that I can do anything in my life inshahallah.

ASHFAQUE: After attending this workshop I am giving up my bad habits like anger, arguing with the parents, telling lies etc. I have improved my behaviour, relationships, and studies. My suggestion is that this type of workshop should be arranged for everyone, at least once in a month to ‘Discover our self”.

FARAH: The workshop was really fantastic and I am very grateful to my coach whose teachings and his presentation was superb. I took control over my anger and I am now confident. I started to listen and obey the elders, by seeing me change they had high praise for the workshop. It helped me develop both physically and mentally.

I conclude with thanks to all the members of this workshop.

FATIMA: I accomplished many things form this workshop. This workshop not only gave me peace but also to my family members. The workshop removed from me the taunting words, blaming others, jealousy and so many other things. Before the workshop I was sad and sorrow because of the divorce I got just a few months ago, due which I was upset and angry on every one. After the workshop I forgave everyone and I forgot the past and started living in the present.

NASEEMA: My mind was so much tensed up and there was lot of confusion in the mind since five months. I was fed up of life. No doubt I was praying five times a day and telling all my problems to Allah. Allah showed me this workshop through my sister. I am very much thankful to Allah, my sister and my coach. His explanations are so simple that even a fool can understand. It has brought tremendous change in my life. I hope Allah will fulfill all my wishes and show me the right path with lot of happiness and peace. I really enjoyed and I shall remember in my dua for my coach who has brought a change in my life and cleared all my doubts.

NAJAF: I say sincerely that I have got lot from this workshop. Many people had wrong me and have cheated me many times. Because of that I would spend my precious time thinking of these events. I would always think why this happened to me? Why to me only? Do they hate me? Etc. I could not concentrate on my studies. But now, Allah ke fazal o karam se I do not have hatred, jealousy and enmity against anyone and I have also forgiven everybody. Now I cannot express my feelings, I am really feeling very free and light. I feel peaceful and happy. I am very thankful to Sadathullah sir. Really I have no words to thank him. Masha Allah this workshop has been of great help to me.

TANZIM: I felt very good after attending this workshop. Actually I have attended just one and half day only and in these days I really felt happy and I enjoyed here. I got rid of my anger to some extent. This life is like a drama and everyone are acting, I do not want to act but want to live a real life.

VASEEMA: This workshop has benefited both my family and me to the maximum. I shared every bit of experience with my husband and son. They cherished every word I told them. My husband is now an altered person in terms of impatience, anger etc. My also a religious person has taken lots of interest and I am sure, he will change too. As far as I am concerned I have participated for the second time and this has contributed to my character many many good things like generosity, love patient, kindness etc. I was having the above qualities inherited in me and therefore the workshop has helped me to deepen these qualities and now I have chosen to purify myself.

THASEEN: First time in my life I have attended this kind of workshop and it has helped me a lot to discover myself. It helped to work my life in a systematic and organized way. It has changed my approach and has brought a stepping-stone in my life. The workshop has benefited all others and me.

AMREEN: I have seen my own self. The benefit, which I have got, is I am able to control my anger, not compare with my brother and understanding my mom. I have seen a new girl in me, who understands. My life was very disturbed before the workshop and now I can control my life and myself. This workshop is really very good in which we can change our self and our lives.

SUHA: By the mercy of Allah the all mighty I have stopped getting angry soon. I could take control of my mind and myself. I have stopped scolding my brothers for every small wrong they do. I am friendly with them and I feel good about this and my brothers are also happy.

MUSSARATH: I shared my experiences of the workshop with my husband and we both were happy that our thoughts were the same. For the first time I talked to my mother with confidence. I want now to share her sorrows and forgive everything what happened in my life in the past and live a tension free, happy life.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

FAYEZA: I have got self confidence and I am bold enough to face hardships and the challenges in my life. I will work hard to achieve my goals and dreams with complete heart in the name of Allah. I will respect all, forgive all and take responsibilities.

MUNEER: I feel quite relished after the workshop. Now I feel very confident of myself. Now I want to contribute to the Muslim society. More workshops must be conducted among the Muslim students to bring up their confidence and develop their personality. Such workshops are great beneficial to the Muslim Society all over India. The Muslims in India today feel quite insecure and backward. They are caught themselves in between a wide range of problems. So more and more workshops must be conducted all over India to bring back the lost glory of Islam.

NABEELA: I am proud to attend this workshop. Before attending I had no confidence at all and was worried what others think of me. I was destroying my future. After attending I got confidence and I feel very much comfortable to stand in front of audience and express my ideas and thoughts. I have become a good listener. Now I am living in the present to create an excellent future. I am confident, responsible, forgiving. Thank You sir for making a difference in my life. I am confident to say that I have changed my life.

KUTTY.A: Sadathullah Khan is really inspiration for my remaining (future) life. Long before I committed suicide but could not be successful. The reason for committing was my younger sister's death. I knew it was wrong but I was in a state that no one was there to give me some good words at that time.
After attending this workshop I am confident in my life. Life is really a magic. We can change ourself, but we need a coach. My shyness, my shaytan and my bad things all disappeared. Now I know Who am I? And for what purpose I am living? I want say thanks to my coach.

AMEEN: Sir, I am really thankful to you for conducting this workshop. Before attending my parents and my cousins often said that I am an introvert. But now I am an extraordinary person. Now I am sure when I reach back home they will wonder the change in me and they will surely thank you and will pray to Allah for your well-being.

RESPONSES FROM SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

YASMEEN: In this workshop I got many things, which takes me now onwards to a real life. I got a key to operate my life. I got the path to heaven. I opened my inner eyes, through which I could see who I am? I got an open window through which I can view the whole of my own world. I got a mirror, which shows my real face.

SALIKA: Before attending the workshop I was not comfortable with my life. I had no confidence. But now after attending the workshop I got confidence to face the world and to accept the challenges. I am now a free bird. It has really given me a lot of strength. Now I know how to handle the situations.

FARHEEN: Life before workshop was very harsh, cruel and not worth living. But after the workshop, I came to know that my life is my life. It is my decisions and opinions that make a difference in my life. No one else has a hold on me. Before the workshop I would react to anything and everything, but now I know it is not necessary to do so. If I change, people seeing me change may change. Now I am at ease with myself and I am in control of my life.

NABEEL: My relatives say that I am a very impatient person, short-tempered etc. When I am angry I lose control over myself and I donot know what I am doing. I couldn't listen to a person for more than an hour. If anybody has hurt me I would not forgive him or her and would always be waiting to take revenge. I am always in a hurry. But after the workshop things have changed. I have control over myself. I donot get angry with small matters. I have learnt to be patient. I listen to things carefully and then take decisions. I have learnt to forgive and forget. Thanks to this workshop. I am a new person who is more responsible and forgiving.

ZEBA: I got a lot, which I cannot put it in words. It was great to listen to the experiences of others and learn from the individuals sharing. Before life has been very difficult, no motive to live and no enthusiasm because of some things that are happening in my life. After attending the workshop I have got the strength back in my life and I am prepared to face the challenges and stand for any result with out any worry. What is going to happen will happen and I submit to the will of Allah. I thank God and pray for you to give all the strength.

MALIKA: Being an oversensitive person, my expectations from each of my relationships with family, friends and relatives were really high. After three days I have realized that personal glorification, personal praise is least important. What is important is BEING, do what you have to do, regardless of the outcome. Be true to yourself and leave the rest to Allah. He is the one who will bestow on you what he feels best. Continue the great work. You have Allah ‘s blessings.

MEHTAB: Before I was living in my own world where I would make a mountain out of a mole in all spheres of my life, but now I have made up my mind that I will live a life fully and see that I make a difference in the life of everyone I come across. Inshah Allah, definitely I will bring into practice everything that I have absorbed.

MEHER: I gained a lot after participating in this workshop. I really experienced a world, which is completely different from the world in which I was living till now that is 42 years. I was very much tensed since I lost my parents and two younger brothers lat year. In duration of 15 days I lost both my parents and a brother. After attending this workshop I came out of this and I am finding it free of tension and I am controlling my temper from the past two days. I have a peace of mind. Insha Allah here after I will lead a life of contentment. I shall sacrifice my life for transforming the human beings as many as possible.

RAIYA: Really I was confused in my life, not able to take any steps, though I knew what is my path, aim, destination still I was not taking any action. I was waiting for an opportunity to come to me so that I prove myself. I learnt by attending this workshop donot run away from problems, people, society, and surroundings but face them, tackle them, have patience, tolerate, be in their world, be very confident, kind hearted, be responsible and keep moving in your life.

RESHMA: I actually called my uncle regarding the project for my semester and my aunt asked me to attend this workshop. I was first hesitant to attend but I thought that I would come across many friends who may help me in searching a project and a job. In the workshop I got meaning to my life. I gave up so many bad things that had become part of my life. I got back my best friend back. Now I am free, I feel that I have discovered myself. The workshop has really changed my life and me.

NAZIMA: Before attending the workshop I had no peace in my life even though I had the best of my parents, brothers and friends. I could not express my feeling out of fear. After attending the workshop I saw so many changes in my life. I got to know how to lead a good, peaceful, happy, truthful and forgiving life. I use to argue for every silly thing when I did not like what they say. I will share all my experiences of the workshop when I go on a holiday to my native place. This workshop is very useful for me.

ZAKYA: I am very proud to be your student and will be your student till death. I say this with the bottom of my heart, ‘your are a good father to me' you showed me the correct path. I am 19 years old and spent my 19 years with out meaning. Within these three days I feel as a newly born baby who does not know what is false, ego, arrogant etc. Before my life was full of complications, disturbence etc. I want to make others happy, I want to do something for others. It's my new life.  I want to become a good teacher and contribute to eradicate illiteracy.  I want to say a couplet.” Aasman main sitaare hain, chand bhi hain aur dunya main phather bhi laikin ‘Discover Yourself' jaisa workshop nahi.”

AMEENA: Before the workshop I was very sensitive, fearful and reserved person, even my parents used to complain about it. I did not know anything about the workshop. I thought it would be lectures on Islam, which we already know. But the first day of the workshop itself I gained lot of knowledge. I am very much thankful to Allah to provide me this opportunity to attend this very useful and helpful workshop. After these two days many changes have taken place in my life. I have given up anger, fear and sensitiveness etc. My parents are also happy to see the changes in me. I thank you sir for giving us such a useful workshop and help us discover ourself.  Duration of the workshop is very less.

This workshop is very good for the girls because they are always tensed and thinking about the future and worried about their marriages.

GULZAR:  Before this workshop I was living in fear, no confidence, negative thoughts, arguing with elders and not having peace of mind.

AMTUL:  Before entering this workshop I had many problems. My father passed away when I was in 5th standard. There are no male members in our house and my mother is only the head of our family. My mother is sensitive and if any problem comes my mother cries and remembers dad and she feels handicap that there are no male members to solve the problems. On seeing our mother we too have become sensitive and developed fear and insecurity. We developed the attitude that females cannot solve problems. After this workshop I have come out of this fear and gained confidence. I have discovered myself. I have gained confidence that any thing is possible and I have given up all my bad habits. From the first day and till the last day I have changed completely. I have given hope to mummy that I can solve the problems that we are facing and she is now feeling very happy.

Everyone should attend this workshop to make themselves as diamonds like me.

ARIFA:  Before coming to this workshop I was thinking that one Moulana would come and teach us about Islam. But after seeing and hearing your first lecture I felt that it will be of benefit to me. As you had promised that after three days your life will be transformed as you said my life after these days has changed. I learnt how to concentrate and give up many things and learnt how to face the challenges of the world. I am willing to attend this workshop again and again Inshah Allah.

HAJIRA: Before coming to this workshop I thought one moulvi will give lecture about Islam but I was wrong, it is entirely a different kind of workshop. I gained lot of knowledge.

37- THREE DAY WORKSHOP FOR MEN

“DISCOVER YOURSELF”

HELD AT : AL-AMEEN A/C SEMINAR HALL

BANGALORE

ON MARCH 13,14 & 15TH  2004

 

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

 

RAFEEQ:  Its one of the most innovative approach to bring everybody to  the platform of self-realisation.  Even though I cannot express individually, I am finding change in each and every aspect of my life,  the change is multi- dimentional. This workshop has made me to realize my mistakes, which were very subtle and I never gave importance to those in my day to day life.  The hard work and commitment of Sadathullah Khan and his team is not only astonishing but also admirable. May Almighty Allah give them strength to conduct more and more workshops.

 

SHOUIB: The most important thing I achieved in the workshop is concentration in namaz. I got confidence, courage, to face people and freedom of expression. I was a shy person from childhood and was not free with people. Every one blamed me for this. I wanted to improve myself and this workshop helped me in improving myself. It was an excellent workshop.

 

MAZHAR: This workshop was amazing and it was a great experience with different groups of mixed aged men.  All the years I thought I knew who I was until I attended this workshop. It certainly has brought a change in me. I feel so much more confident about life. I had overcome my anger, stress and frustration. I feel pure in my heart and mind now.  I realised how simple life can be.

 

ZAMEER: I am finding my life peaceful and full of joy. I was very much disappointed in my life before attending this workshop. I am very thankful for the organizers of the workshop.

 

MASOOD: Before the workshop who I was to the  family was a  strict husband, strict father and a strict head of the family with no soft corner. But after my declaration to the family that I choose to be loving, caring and straight, the attitude of my family towards me altered as a friendly person.

 

MUJAHID: I was always living in ( dream land) past or future, this resulted in not being happy for what I have. I had no proper sleep, restlessness and always thinking of making money. Today I have a peace of mind, happiness and relaxed. Being in the present really helped me.

 

AKRAM: I came to know who I am. I came to know who my wife and my children are. I came to know who I am for my mother, father and brothers. I was carrying tons of load which I dropped at the workshop. I am now feeling light, free and great. I thank Allah for guiding me to participate in this workshop.

MOHD TARIQ ( MUKUND) :  I have started living in the moment. My life is a playground and I will paly with dignity. I will forgive people and I also seek God's forgiveness. I will represent God in the best way possible. I choose  to surrender to God.

 

IQBAL:  This workshop opened me up in a lot of ways. Eventhough I was following Islam in good way, there were many loopholes here and there. I was thinking we are human beings, so doing small mistakes does not matter.  After the workshop I realised that, whatever was instructed by God and the Prophet ( Pbuh) has to be followed strictly other waise there is no point in being a representative of Allah ( Khalifa). I think these kind of workshops should be held in every city of India and cause awareness to the Muslim community.

 

IMRAN:  Before coming to this workshop my problem was that I could not concentrate on anything neither in home nor in office. A s result I did not enjoy the confidence of my friends and family members. I was even afraid of speaking openly with my heart. I was not able to concentrate in my namaz. Now things have really changed. I can concentrate in my namaz, also at home and in office things are slowly changing. I am able to gain complete peace of mind.

 

MANSOOR: Before I was always tensed, brooding and introvert. Now I am a changed man. I have learnt to forgive. Most important thing is that I started to take control over myself and my actions. Unfortunately words cannot describe the feelings. The difference it has made radiates everywhere in my home. I have brought happiness to my home, wife and self. This workshop should be conducted for the Imams as majority of the Muslims will benefit through their Friday sermons.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

SHIHABUDDIN: Really, by the grace of Allah, I am transformed! Before the workshop I was living in fantasy and now I am in reality and in the present. As a Muslim, this workshop convinced ‘who a Muslim should be'. To me it is a call to act and play in the court. Moreover, as an affect of this workshop I am purified.

ANAS: I came on the first day here with a load of burdens and bad feelings haunting me, but now I feel light hearted and relaxed.  Now I can love everyone, even my enemies, but not Allah's enemies.  I am ready to sacrifice my life for Allah's cause. I feel happy that I am now courageous, patient and purified.

RAHMATHULLAH:  I had not participated in such types of workshops earlier. According to me this workshop is marvelous.  This workshop has made a very deep transformation in my life and my family life. I strongly believe that it will also enlighten my future life. My gratitude to you for transforming my life and giving me a new life. Please learn Malayalam language sir and conduct this marvelous workshop for common people of our society, as it will change the whole society.

MUSTAFA: This workshop helped me very much and I congratulate Sadathullah Khan for giving me a different perspective of life. I was a person who never kept promises, taking revenge and judging others. Now I have shed all those bad qualities in me. I am completely freed. I feel happy to say that I have started giving importance to the present. Please conduct this workshop for women also.

SIDIQUE: The workshop has brought transformations in my attitude towards my family. I used to advise and blame my family but now I stopped. Now I am clear in my mission. Earlier, salvation of life for me was a mere word but now I got the real meaning of salvation. In brief, I got an enchanting transformation, that is, I discovered myself as a khalifa of Allah.

YUSUF:  I feel all my tensions are gone after attending the workshop. I am going home without any baggage, which I have dropped here. I am sure that I shall deal powerfully with my spouse and my family, as I have transformed. I also hope to transform my wife and then others in my community.

SHARFUDDIN:  I realized my strength, my weakness and myself. I had been carrying the past.  I never thought about the present. I thought that pleasure lies ahead of me. Now, I understood that pleasure and peace is within me. I had attended many personality classes, but did not put into practice. In this workshop, I could put to practice and the results were excellent. The topics on hijrah and Jihad are too thought provoking. This workshop is very much useful to social workers or to any Muslim. I thank Allah and Sadathullah Khan sir, for holding such a workshop.

ABJITH:  I used to ask my parents what is ‘LIFE' and they said that everyone have their own life and their own point of view.  I could not realize it. Now after attending the workshop I came to know what life is. Three days before my life was without confidence, life without forgiveness and life without patience. Now I am confident, forgiving and patient. I was always worried about my stupid past and now I can learn from my past.  I have admitted the reality and now jumped into the court and start playing my life with free mind and Allah will inshahallah guide me.

MOOSA: This three-day workshop was very useful to me, it changed my behaviour. Before attending the workshop I had many negative qualities in me.  After the workshop all my disappointments and negative attitudes went away. I got confidence and I realized that anything is possible.  This workshop should be held in every village.

SUBAIR: I changed myself, I discovered myself.  Before I was lazy and never kept my word. After the workshop, who I am is my word; I shall be in the court and play with no attachments for the results.  I shall be in the present and create my future. I liked this workshop heartily.

SHAHEED:  Now I am able to apply Islamic Teachings, Qualities of Allah and the Prophet (Pbuh) in my life. The workshop helped me to create good relationships. Now I understood some of the real meanings of Islam. This type of workshop should be popularized. May Allah help us. Ameen.

BASHEER:  This workshop gave me confidence to face any circumstances in my life. I feel that I am totally changed and an accomplished student.  I gained lot of benefits and also had an opportunity to meet many scholars and great personalities in this workshop.  Ultimately this workshop opened a new way of life for me. I intend to enroll many of my friends for the next workshop.

SHAFEE:  I was familiar to most of the ideas that was explained by Sadathullah khan. But what I got out of my participation is a very new feeling of greatness of Islamic Ideology. Really, I am very happy for getting a chance to witness the attractive presentation of Sadathullah Khan. I am sure I underwent some changes in my qualities deliberately or undeliberately and I am sure this kind of workshop will help change the attitude of Muslims.

SIRAJ:  I came to this workshop with so many mental pains and feelings. After the three days workshop, I am sitting here in full happy mood, all my mental pains and feelings disappeared. I show my thanks to Janab Sadathullah Khan and to the Chair for Islamic Studies and Research, University of Calicut for holding such a workshop. You must conduct this workshop to all our Muslim Communities.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

HUSNA: I first want to thank Allah (swt) and then Sadathullah Khan for holding such a programme and for giving us an opportunity for the spoiled brats to reform.  I attended the workshop on the insistence of the lecturers. In the beginning of the programme I was resisting and as it went on I was slowly drag into it and was so much engrossed that I wished it continued forever. I was not a spoiled child but after my fathers death I felt my whole world has been snatched away from me and then I suddenly took to all bad habits like telling lies, not respecting the elders, and doing all sorts of wrong things.  This workshop helped me reform my self by realising all my follies and I came back to my good life. I want to pray to Allah that such a workshop be held again so as to reform our lives. Lastly I want to thank with the bottom of my heart to Sadathullah khan sir.

AMINA: Never thought of what quality of life, I was earlier living. I was just a deadwood adrift – no aim, nothing, troubled by my past, I was hoping for a better future without taking any action.  If I had not attended this workshop my deen and duniya would have gone to the dogs.  But now I feel I can salvage my life and move ahead. All this I am writing is true. I feel like crying when I recollect all these years of my life, how I have wasted them and led them in misery. I feel now that my Allah has guided me. I had never till this day thought about my relationship with Allah, just thoughts of Allah was in general terms. Keep up the good work.

SHAESTA: The three-day period has changed the outlook of my life. All the basic and simple things in life of which we are worried and that looks so huge are covered in just a matter of 24 hours. I never believed that so much of difference could be brought about in just three days. Before the workshop, most of my energy was spent in just thinking and thinking of either past or future. Is this right or wrong.  I am living in the present and there is new meaning to my life now. I would like to heart fully thank Sadathullah khan and his team who arranged this workshop here.

SHAJI BEGUM:  I thank Allah a million times for giving me an opportunity to participate in this three-day workshop.  All the problems, which I had in my married life, have vanished. What I mean is that my married life was a burden but now it has become blessing and the husband has now become mine. The expectations I had from my Lord have been fulfilled. By the grace of Allah now all areas of my life has become a blessing. I pray to Allah to create more such persons as Sadathullah Khan so that in the entire world every Muslim led a life of true khalifa of Allah.

AYESHA: This workshop was very interesting; I gave up my short temper and my bad habits after attending this workshop.  I was not able to concentrate in my studies and now I will get 95% result inshahallah. I request you to hold more such workshop. I thank the lecturers and the principal for giving me an opportunity to attend this workshop and I thank sir.

HAFZA:  I have discovered a human being out of myself. I learnt to respect my elders, love my children and most important of all forgiving and helping.  I had a very good experience and it is really very difficult to write what I got? It is a lovely feeling, which has brought peace and tranquility in my life; the most important benefit is I have grown younger. Before attending the workshop I was an animal. I was very rude to kids and elders. Even a taunt, gossip, backbiting would hurt me, because of which I had sleepless nights. But now I am totally transformed into a human being. I thank Allah who made me attend this workshop.

SADIQUA:  I got freedom and life seems to be different after this workshop.  Before the workshop I used to think and feel that no body likes me, my character, I am a big mouth and so on, I used to fight for every little thing. I came to know that every moment of my life lies in me, the way I think. I choose myself they way I am. I have got peace, everybody is looking good, fine, the world and life looks nice. Thanks a lot for making a difference in my life.

ASIFA:  Firstly, I thank Almighty for giving me the opportunity to attend this workshop. I really appreciate Sadathullah Khan for holding this workshop, which was really very informative, it changed our lives, experienced new things, felt better and light. I am really thankful to you and request you to conduct this workshop more and more. I really discovered myself.

FATIMA:  I have accomplished a lot. I find a different person in me. I am a confident person now. I have been able to overcome my ego, depression and tensions.  I am able to love and appreciate everyone. I can forgive everyone; I am able to enjoy my life. I feel satisfied, happy with what I am and what I have. Before this workshop, I was just surviving. Now I have found a meaning to my life. Yes, I have discovered myself, my true self. Thank you very much for making a difference in my life.

S.JAHAN:I am the lecturer in this college.  I like to say that this workshop has imparted immense benefits. Whatever appreciation is said about this workshop is less. The workshop has impacted each and every student, including myself.   It has given a new life to everyone of us. All the hidden potentialities have emerged out. Sadathullah Khan has shown the reality of human being and burnt the ego inside us. I pray to Allah to give him and his family good health and love.   Ameen

TABASSUM: I have immensely benefited from this workshop. I have left behind all my past and I am living a peaceful life. I have become more tolerant, less irritating and more loving towards my children. My children like this new mummy very much. I have not nagged my husband for the last two days and I have accepted him for what he is and what is not. I have got a new lease in my life. I found Sadathullah Khan to be extra-ordinary, very energetic and untiring (we get very much tired after one hour of lecture).

I have really found the good, sweet and pure person  which was hidden inside me which I could not have found because it was hidden under all the garbage.

UPADHYAY .J: Before coming to this workshop I had the fear of the stage and had no confidence. After attending this workshop I got confidence and the fear also vanished. I was very much worried about my CET exams for MBA. Thinking will I get admission in a good college or not, can I do it etc.. I was always tensed though the exams are one year ahead. But after attending the workshop I am confident and nothing is impossible now for me. I will get admission in a good college. I also came to know much about Islam and felt very good.

JAINAB:  Before the workshop I was afraid of coming on the stage, now I got confidence. After forgiving everyone in my life I am feeling free. I am very happy for getting an opportunity to attend this workshop . I have developed my personality.

RIZWANA:  I got courage and confidence in this workshop. This workshop was not only learning but also fun. We enjoyed and are happy for coming to this workshop. My fear has vanished. I am giving up hate, envy and all the negative things which I had. Sir your stamina is very good., understanding and coaching method is too good.

NASHEED: In this workshop I accomplished the great job of forgiving those people whom I harboured a lot of revenge in my heart. I realised how I could lead a quality life. I realised who I am? Who I should be? And what is my mission in this world? On the whole I found a new me and finally I discovered myself.

NASREEN: First of all I like to thank Sadathullah Khan sir. I was a very shy girl, introvert. I did not have good friends to share my feelings and emotions. In this workshop I realised myself and changed, now I am feeling light, confident, I will create good relationships with others and make more friends. I will say sorry to my parents for the things I have done wrong to them. I declare to be a good human being and  to be a good doctor to serve mankind.

BOYS

ABDUL RAUF: Alhamdulillah a very good experience. The first workshop of my life. Before I was a discouraged boy, always negative minded, always living in the past or future and having little knowledge of Islam. In this workshop , thanks to sir I have learnt the tactics to listen and grasp knowledge, to concentrate in namaz (Salah). Sadathullah Khan is  really a great person and his typical Bangalorie style of teaching is enjoying.

SABIR:  Really, what I did not accomplished in my last 18 years, I have achieved now. What a marvelous achievement? I have done and I declare it sir, when I called my mummy yesterday night, the way I spoke politely to my mummy, she was very happy and said that what has happened to you, are you all right or not. I said to my mummy that mummy I have achieved a lot over here within three days. Before this workshop  I was really a dull person, was not having confidence in myself and was not courageous. I was thinking who will teach me.

RIYAZUDDIN:  When I was told to attend this 3 day residential personality development camp, I thought that this will be a waste of time. I was told in the bus that there will be an expert, who will call me on the stage, I started to shiver. But when I saw Mr Khan so kind, an expert and so beautiful way of coaching, I was full of joy and found myself happy. I got encouragement in this camp and I learnt a lot which cannot be told. I can live a quality life and can over come any problem easily.  Sadathullah Khan sir, please take care of your self because you are a wealth of knowledge and persons like ‘YOU' donot born always.

P.HUSAIN MOHD: These three days are most valuable and best days of my life.  I learnt many things, to live a happy, peaceful and simple life. Now I know life is simple, it is we our self who make it complicated. I choose to lead a simple life, no matter whatever up down comes in our life. I will follow the path which will be beneficial first to me and my family and then to the whole world. If I can a make a difference even in one person, it will be worthy for me.

‘DISCOVER YOURSELF'

HELD AT: BENSON TOWN, BANGALORE
DATES: DECEMBER 19,20 & 21 2003
 

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

SHAZIA:  I was a restless person before the workshop, a little over confident about myself. In the workshop I came to know my draw  backs. I can now control my mind and not allow my mind to have a control over me. A special relationship is built between me and Allah., I have learnt to trust Him more than ever.  (masha Allah).  I think I am capable of handling my life in a better manner. I am more at peace with my self. Good work!! I think every woman need to be educated in this manner. A lot of domestic violence will come down by such workshops and people will be at peace with themselves and others. Keep it up!!!

RADHA ( NEO-MUSLIM):  I was so disturbed in my life. I was not  knowing what should I do. Sometime I used to feel like killing my self. I used to fight with every body, say bad about others and used to judge bad about them. I used to feel all alone and was very much confused, disturbed.  Some times I use to feel ‘ARE' all Muslims like this, but I was wrong. I was not  knowing who I am. After attending this workshop I have learnt so many things. I learnt who I am and I will forgive every body. I will love every body. I will give peace to others. I will keep my surrounding happy. I will be a diamond till I am in this world. I thank sir, for the change he brought in me.

SUMMI: This workshop is a boon to me. It has brought a revolution in my life. I have discovered myself.  The attributes if forgiveness and sharing really opened up for me.  I felt ultimate joy and peace at the end of each day of the workshop.  My ego is washed away and I feel myself calm and peaceful.  I will be the Khalifa of  Allah throughout my life. I suggest that the workshop may be held for men also.

ASMA:  The first thing I learnt, how wonderful Islam is, and life has become so simple. Islam appeared to be difficult like sacrificing or giving up or forgiving. But this workshop made me realized, how simple Islam is when practiced and experienced.  This workshop opened the doors to enter into the ocean of purity rather than expectations.  Before the workshop I had an irritating mind, just boosting at my children, dissatisfied and blamed my fate at every negative circumstances. But after attending the workshop I feel to get rid of this and I am proud that I got the keys to reach to my destination.

SULTANA:  Before the workshop I was a depressed and confused person as I was not satisfied with my life. But now I have transformed myself to be happy and a contented person. I will do my best to be happy with my family and create a positive attitude, imbibe good values within me so that my husband and my children also get peace of mind at home.  I have taken a new view towards Islam..

NAHEED:  Before attending this workshop my life was a mess because I was carrying the burden of the past, i.e. I was having a guilty conscious because I chose a husband of my own (love marriage) but after coming to the workshop and sharing that guilt has disappeared completely. I was a very stubborn person, having inferiority complex and this has vanished. I benefited a lot form this workshop and I am extremely happy. I had never accepted my in-laws but with in three days I have started accepting them. From this workshop I came to know that Islam teaches you to love each other and forgive each other. I have become a forgiving and loving person.  Please see that you hold this kind of workshops once a month.

AQEELA:  When I shared my experiences of the workshop in the house, everyone in the house appreciated it. I could see my neighbour's facial expression of surprise , who had said to me why do you want to go and waste your time and money. Even my mother and brother changed when I shared my insights with them. My brother who is a very egoist and says that whatever he says is right and others are wrong asked forgiveness from my mother. I really changed a lot. I was thinking that being a girl I cannot do anything, but from the workshop I got confidence and said to myself that I am the one who can change and represent Muslims and make a difference to non-Muslims and to Muslims. Inshah Allah I will do to improve my Muslim community and myself.

SABA:  I was a person of short temper and would hardly give a ear to what others have to say. But after the workshop I could listen to them and have control over the situation. Also I could not forgive anyone easily, until they ask sorry, but now I have a different concept of forgiveness. I felt much light hearted today and more calm and peace within myself. Definitely I find a difference in myself during these three days. Definitely this workshop will change each and everyone who attends it, but it would be more effective if couples were coached simultaneously.

RAFAT:  The workshop helped in transforming me tremendously. I was a person living in a shell brooding over the split milk. I thought that I could never come out of it. I knew my potentialities and the will power helped me. Happiness of our home is in our own hands. If we are happy, contented and courageous we can handle the difficult moments with ease. We should fear Allah and not bother about what people say about us. I am eagerly waiting for my husband to come from abroad, so that I can start the life afresh. Thanks a lot to Sadathullah Khan.

SAMEENA: I have never attended any workshop before. I am very happy to attend this workshop. Before the workshop I was a very angry person, unsatisfied and always fighting with my husband for silly reasons. But now after attending this workshop I am quite relaxed, understanding and a better person. I have not become perfect person but I am trying not to make any mistake and the most important thing is that I have decided to be a person of my ‘WORD'. After attending this workshop my husband is also trying to know my problems and understand me better.

SHANAZ:  My way of approach to life has changed. Earlier I thought follow the 5 pillars of Islam strictly without looking into my daily life. Now I know how to practice Islam in my everyday life. I have realised the importance of being a Muslim in action. May Allah give me the hidayah to hold on to things which I have decided and to follow them for life. Inshah Allah this will change my relationship with my spouse.

This workshop has shown me a new way to a good and contented life, which is both simple and easy to adopt. I am a new person now with commitments, principles and one who keeps her word. Thanks to the organizers and to Sadathullah Khan. I wish and request you to keep conducting such workshops here and everywhere and please if possible give a chance to join the team for serving mankind.

SHAZIA: Before also my life was sailing smoothly but I used to be irritated with myself more often for no reasons at all. Now I have stopped judging others, stopped directing others. I have found that each person is valuable to me and has become more loveable and dear to me. New doors have opened, I am able to create lovely things and have been feeling very very light and transparent. I got the opportunity to discover myself.

SAIMA:  I was biased and cynical when I came here the first day. I didn't for one moment thought that I could achieve anything by coming here. But I would be fooling myself if I would not admit that this workshop really helped me have some clear views and concepts. This workshop is not about preaching but it is about experiencing and playing an active role in betterment of our life. This workshop is really very good and it can be practiced in day to day life. Thank you very much.

It helped me to understand how to view others learn from them imbibe new qualities in me and make life of my family and myself better.

SHAIASTA: Thank you very much for this workshop. The most important thing I achieved, was the aim of my life. Why I was sent in this world. I would say the workshop was like giving life to dead. I got my life back and my family. Please continue conducting such workshops because we all in this community are thirsty and eager for such workshops.

TAYIBA: Before the workshop my opinion about Islam was only to perform namaz (salah) and Roza (fasting) but now I came to know that we should also have the attributes of Allah as we are the Khalifa of Allah (representative of Allah) in this world.

I came to know the real meaning of Jihad. I thank the organizers of this workshop for changing my thinking and my life style.

ARIFA: Unfortunately I did not attend the last two days but I must admit that even a day of this workshop has been very useful in leaving an impact on me. But the thing that deserves to be mentioned is that I can see it and observe the change in my friend (Sana). I can see the reflection of respected Sadathullah Khan sir in her.  Sir's words have really worked wonders. Now she in no more among us but a new changed person.

RAFIA: First, I would like to thank Sadathullah sir. Thank you very very much sir. I have missed the last two days programme. I only attended today. I cannot express my feeling about this workshop; it is really wonderful and excellent. I really appreciate it. Today, I listened to others experiences about last two days, it is amazing. I promise to enter into the court and strive to achieve what I want, by following this way I can find my way and my aim.

Our contribution towards Muslim community and to this world was brought out effectively in an inspiring manner. A sudden change, which was observed in our girls, was really miraculous. Girls who had no courage to come on stage came without hesitation and frankly accepted their mistakes and declared to correct themselves. It was a moving sight when girls cried and apologized to their lecturers for their wrong doings.

This workshop showed me the right things and the reality of life and how to deal with my family.

DATES: OCTOBER 3, 4 & 5  2003
   

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

 NAFISA: First I like to thank Sadathullah Khan for making my life and my family full of happiness, love, and peace. Before I came to the workshop I had many problems and many questions. I was suffering from depression since my childhood. From past four years I have not been sleeping at night and because of this I am suffering from several diseases at this age.  Thanks to my coach I have got all my answers. I don't need to change others but I need to transform myself.  Thanks once again to Khan for making my life so beautiful. I have been praying to Allah for many years for my problems and Allah has answered my prayers by personally sending Sadathullah Khan especially for me and my brothers and sisters.

KAUSER: I have become a totally changed person now.  Previously I was a very short-tempered person, but now I don't get angry very easily.Before I used to hate my life, but now I have started loving my life. I started to love my children and I am very contented and happy. I am very thankful to Sadathullah Khan who has changed my life through this workshop.

NOORA: After attending the workshop I am very relaxed, my life has been totally changed, how did this happen, I cannot say. Before attending this I was very disturbed, full of tension, depressions and I was not confident.  I ran away from my problems, but after this workshop, I am very much self-confidant, I can face the world; I can show the world that I am also a diamond. I can do and achieve what I want.  I have forgiven all my enemies. Who I am is pure, love, confident and true to myself. Now I have the power to play no matter what happens.  Everyone should attend this workshop at least one time.

JAZBEEN: This workshop has played a very important role in my life.  I always wanted to be a free person, mingle easily with others, and share my problems. I am grateful to sir who gave me this opportunity to open up, share my views in front of an audience without fear of rejection.  I never attended any workshop related to Islam in my life. But after attending this workshop, I have been able to come out of my world of fantasy and face the world of reality.  It has helped me gain immense confidence in myself. It has given me a direction and showed that I can contribute something to the society by being true to myself.

NISHAT:  I got confidence and I got the gift of forgiveness. My experience was as if I was at peace. My soul was purified. I loved this workshop. This workshop helped me in my relationships with my family and friends. Before attending this workshop my life was routine, very tedious, quarrels, depression etc.  Now my life is peaceful and content. I felt as if I am complete. My love for others increased, my tolerance and power of forgiveness also increased. For my problems I had read books and took help from people but only this workshop showed me the path with reasons. I shall eternally be thankful to the organisers of this workshop.

26-  THREE DAY WORKSHOP FOR MEN
  ‘DISCOVER YOURSELF'
HELD AT: HUMAYUN KABIR INSTITUTE, KOLKATA
DATES: SEPTEMBER 29, 30 & 1 OCT 2003  

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

IMRAN: Before the workshop I was egoistic, arrogant, Jhuta (liar) type person. I never used to accept anybody's ideas or advise. In totality my life was in a mess. For petty things I use to create a scene in the house. Fighting with Mum, wife, sister, leaving nobody.  I had a dual image, one (a very good and polite one in the outside world) and the other a nasty and messy one in the house.  In totality I made my life and the life of my near and dear one's a mess.  But, Allah has great plans for me. He wants me to change. He motivated me to join the workshop (actually my sister made me to come here), I was not willing.    29th Sept came as a blessing for me (Inshah Allah it will be through out my life). These three days, I started to listen to people. I have thrown away anger from my life. I have committed myself that I will give my family members peace of mind for the remaining period of my life. I will change, my surroundings will change, Inshah Allah.

ZIAUDDIN: After attending the workshop, I found it amazing and beyond imagination. I had attended a number of seminars and conferences but not found the scientific and effective way of teaching of Sadathullah khan. This workshop gave me a new dimension in my life. I am really thankful to the organizers.

ENAMUL .H: My life before the workshop was like a snake with a frog in his mouth, he could neither sallow it nor could throw it out, like that I couldn't make out between good and bad. Here I got the right way of living. This workshop gives light to Muslims who are still in the dark.

SARFARAZ: Before joining this workshop I think I was not actually living like a human being. This workshop changed my thinking and really changed my life. I thank Allah for giving me the opportunity to attend this workshop

SAJID: I have discovered my life by participating in this workshop. I came to know about Islam and my-self. I benefited a lot from this workshop. My life before was a difficult one, now, I am feeling free and living a happy life.

ZAFAR:  Before coming to this workshop, I was always living in tension by remembering the past and about the future. Lots of complications and bad habits were in my life. But after attending the workshop, it has brought lot of changes in my life. Now I am feeling free from tension.  All my rudeness is gone out of my life. Love and affection is increased in me. I am sure that this present life will be better than my earlier life.

TABREZ:   I have attended this workshop on the last day only (Which I regret). I have not achieved the complete benefits. From what I heard and learnt today I found that Sadathullah Khan, to be very professional, good and experienced in his way of teaching. The technique of explaining is very interesting. The greatest benefit I got from this workshop is to be on the ‘court' and play the game of life, instead of sitting on the ‘stands' and be an observer.

JAMIL:  I was a person with always lost in thoughts, blaming myself, never satisfied. I was very sentimental. I was taking everything very lightly and used to be a spectator. I used lots of ifs and buts. But after the workshop I find that I have accepted all the happenings and the life as it is. I have started to listen to others. I am finding confidence and relaxed. I am finding myself a better and more responsible person. The coach has a very good style of teaching. His demonstrations are excellent.

ASLAM:  When I heard from my friend regarding this, I had no idea, what I am going to get from this workshop. But after attending, I felt that my surrounding has changed, but I finally realized myself changed. I feel very light weight, no burden now. I literally couldn't find at this moment to explain with words, only I can share my feelings, which cannot be put on the paper.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

NISHAT:  Before attending the workshop I was too short tempered, I used to get angry very often. This workshop brought a lot of changes in my life and in others life too. I feel, I am in a different world, pure and light hearted. I feel I have shed my burden, I am very happy. I have changed myself.  I feel I have just born baby. All the family members changed when I changed myself just because of the workshop. I thank Allah for giving me a new life.

R. KHAN:  Earlier my life was full of tension because of me not getting married. Everyone in the house was tensed because I was being rejected for being a Khan (Pathan). Now after attending this workshop I am at peace for I chose to be a Khan and I am living in the present and not in the past (blaming others) nor in the future (hoping to living happily). This is it. My parents, sisters and myself were very happy from heart after a very long time, as I opened up and expressed everything that I had in my heart. Today I live in peace and happiness. Thanks a lot for helping me to lead a life that I always wanted to live, but did not know how too.  Thank you once again.

SHERIEF  R.: I was a very short temper person. Very often I used to scold my kids for silly mistakes. I was not forgiving people who had hurt me before. But after this workshop I know, I have changed a lot and I have noticed it. Now I am polite with my kids. I have forgiven many people from the bottom of my heart, now I feel very free and relaxed. I have shed a lot of burden.  I hope I remain the same person through out my life. Insha Allah.

SAMEERA:  I was really rude, arrogant and ignorant. But since I attended this workshop I knew the purpose of our life on earth. I loved my friends, never cared for my parents and family. I truly speaking I love making friends and I have a lot of friends. But by attending this workshop I started being respectful to my parents. I could not forgive anybody easily and did not speak to them for a long time but on the second I called them and said sorry for whatever I had done to them.

NAYEEMA: Before the workshop I was praying Allah in namaz (salah) to give hidayah and the purpose of creating us. After the workshop I have understood the purpose of our creation. I got the benefit of living in the present and how I can make a difference in others life. I shall share my experiences with my husband and children and make a difference in their lives. Please keep the workshop in holidays so that the students and teachers can attend.

AMRIN: I have experienced life in full and have tasted the bliss of life. A lot of new avenues and paths opened up for me in my mind. I feel I am in a better position to handle situations and people. A new person walked out of this workshop on the last day. I am making a commitment of bringing transformation in myself and also in others and Inshahallah will be dedicated to this mission as if my life depends on it.

ZEHRA: After attending the workshop I could reflect and ponder over a lot of things, got confidence, over came all my inhibitions. I feel I am a more refined confident person today. May Allah bless you and reward you for your efforts.

ASMA: Really I was very much in the dark before. Now I feel that I have enlightened to some extent. I feel relaxed and have left all my baggage behind. I promise to practice what I learnt myself and then will have the power to transform others.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS ARE GIVEN BELOW

NAVIDI:Honestly I have been into lots of reading, mostly self improvement stuff. I believe in Stephen Covey, Dr Wayne Dyer, Anthony Robbins, Daniel Coleman school of thought. So I entered thinking your workshop coached same things, thoughts, values, principles as they wrote BUT your workshop was “VERY EFFECTIVE” and I firmly believe that ‘EFFECTIVENESS' is better than'EFFICIENCY'. PLUS this workshop had an Islamic base and justification to everything Masahallah. I feel absolutely refreshed, a sort of had a ‘REBIRTH'. I discovered that my polluted life has now become a blank canvas for me and so, now I have every thing to start afresh my life.

PROF VORA:The workshop helped me to introspect, taught me to be open mind, accommodative, understanding and sharing. The workshop infused in me the sense of meaningful life- how life is simple. It gave me insight into how life can be worth living leading with values, leading to peace and salvation. The workshop helped me to rediscover myself as a true Muslim, a good human being. The workshop did enlighten me about the art of living which is essential for a peaceful , purposeful living.

AFROZ:Before coming to the workshop I was thinking of myself and was just surviving. But after attending the workshop I came to know that I was not sent on the earth to survive and fill my stomach like an animal. I am a human being. I was sent for a mission. A mission to spread Islam, message of peace on the earth. Now, what I have to do is first of all transform myself. Inshahallah, hereafter, I shall be my word, punctual in my prayers and fulfil all the promises I have committed. I will let go of my ego and the past burden which I am carring for last so many years. I will create my future and live a life full of peace and happiness.

SINGH PRAMOD:Your workshop is necessary for every human being. Thank you for purifying me. I started to listen to others. I forgave others and released myself from tension. As I am a Hindu but I shall treat everyone as my brothers and sisters since we are brothers under the fatherhood of God.

SHEELA JOHN:In this workshop I got many things. I was very angry, short temperd, but now I have control over myself. I feel good, very peaceful , cool and calm. I understand my husband and children, we shared with each other.

REHNUMA:I can not express my feelings, I have no words for this workshop. If I use more than 1000 papers to write then also, I can't say or write. I am very lucky to have this opportunity to meet Khan, sir. I want to say that we had discovered our self in this workshop, now I feel fresh and a new world to live. Thank you very, very much.

TARANNUM:This workshop is an excellent example of practical application of the teachings of Islam. The very existence of oursef depends on our word. Being my word makes me believe in my self in my actions. I have a much better reation with my family members now. This has been a great learning experience for me by learning to share, forgive and listen. Hoping to look forward to a simple life of happiness, success and love.

DAWOOD:Good, useful and informative workshop. New horizons have opened up. The feelings of revenge is gone and forgiveness is uppermost. Truth is dawned. Stopped criticizing others, build mutual trust. [ Aged 68 years, he passed away on the one first week of Ramadan (Nov 2003) may Allah shower His Mercy and may his soul rest in peace.]

FAREED:Before attending the workshop I was confused, directionless and my mind was burdened, now after attending the workshop, I am feeling light, relieved and cheerful and the rays of hope have brightened up. Arrived at peace. All my confusions got dropped. Become bold enough to accept the present situation and take action. This workshop has widened my thoughts, my approach and my attitude. I regained my lost confidence and trust with my family. My wife and myself are feeling very relieved and cheerful. Mutual understanding has increased.

SHABBIR:I have reduced my baggage and past that I was carrying about my work so far. I have experienced more freedom. Clear mind and more time available to me. I have got back my mother, my wife and kids and my life. I am less irritable, less procrastinating (dwelling on things too much) , more alert and present in any situation. The workshop has helped me understand that everyone has a choice to live a fulfilling and complete life. It has brought me closer to Allah and helped me understand His message better.

Z. TONSAE:This is a fact that I have attended other workshops, I could not get as much as I got from this three day workshop 'DISCOVER YOURSELF' I completely understand the purpose of the workshop and I promised to be Allah's Ambassador- Khalifa for ever- Inshahallah. I am available for any services needed for such workshops.

YUSUF ALI:I have gone through a drastic change in my attitude towards everything i.e people, things, my family etc. Earlier the way I would look at things in life was very different from the way I look at them now. This workshop has certainly improved my relationships with people and has removed a lot of negative feelings in life. It has taught me to live a tension free life and off course with a platform of Islam. This workshop is a blend of Islamic values, scientific knowledge and physcological tendencies of humans etc.. Please spread this every where on a war footing.

ADEEB:I have accomplished peace and have got to know my weakness which has been stopping me to act. I had been living in a false faith about life and achievement. I never used to be in the present, rather I used to be remembering the past or planning the future. This workshop has guided me to find out my weakness that is stopping me from attaining peace and succeeding in life. I came in with a confused and heavy mind and I am walking out with a light and peaceful mind.

OMAR:Before the workshop my father said that I am little childish, gets angry fast and has bad temper. My mom said you don't keep your promise and you are disobedient. After attending the workshop I got control over my anger. I will stand up in my life and play the game rather than seeing and watching the game. I will keep my word and I will forgive others. I will achieve my goal.

AKBAR: Before the workshop I had the knowledge but now I got the idea of how to put it into practice and get results. I got the lower of listening. Got self control and ultimately peace.

ZAFAR:Many, many areas of my life altered in this workshop. Now I listen to my younger brothers and sisters which I was not doing before, I listen to my parents. I do my namaz . Just I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart that you have transformed me a lot.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE STUDENTS ARE GIVEN BELOW

FARHIN KADGE:The workshop was conducted in the School and I thought eight hours sitting dumb would bore me up but I was wrong. I learnt many things- much about life as a Muslim in this workshop. This workshop changed my life completely. I help my mother, I left fighting with my elder sister, I forgave my friends who fought with me and I asked forgiveness from whom I fought. I promise to be firm, confident and forgiving. My parents cannot recognize me whether really I am the old Farhin or someone else. I will be true to myself and never cheat. I am happy that in our nation there are few people who think of Muslim community for their development and future. I am sure that every Muslim who attend this workshop will change himself and would improve this Nation. I suggest that the parents should also attend the workshop along with the students, so that they could share their feelings with us.

FARZANA:This workshop was very interesting. I was first a very artificial girl. Now I am a very new girl and it has really changed my life. My mummy said that I have changed and now my brother is also nice with me. I also want the parents to attend this workshop. I like to say this workshop should also be conduct in other schools.

ALMAS:Specially when our teacher said about this workshop, I thought it might be boring but it was not. It was interesting. Every day I fought with my sisters but now I do not fight. My short temper reduced. My friend Nadia and I were not talking but now we started speaking. I asked forgiveness from my friends. Because of this workshop my whole life has changed, I enjoyed a lot, had fun as well as we got knowledge on Islam. I thought the workshop will be boring, let me spend timing studing for the exam but this workshop was important. Now I feel that it should be there for one more day.

FARHEEN PATEL:This workshop is great, I like it. It has changed my life. Sir, is a great person. I have controlled my anger and have a strong feeling of forgiveness. I was not speaking to my brother for two years and now I gort good relationship with my brother and also my relationship with my mother, my sister and friends have reaaly improved. When I prayed namaz listening to my voice I felt as if I was flying in the air and my feet were not on the ground. I think this workshop should be attended by every Muslim. I really thank Allah for giving such a nice workshop which can turn a stone into a diamond. Let Allah shower lots of blessing and mercy upon sir.

AMREEN:I am very short tempered girl and I get angry very soon. There are many bad qualities in me as others have, but after attending this workshop I am now quite different than before. My life has become very light and all the good qualities had come into myself. I think that this workshop was a great opportunity and I was very lucky to attend this. I will change myself and change my family and society. Such workshops are very necessary for today's generation as they are getting spoiled day by day so that they come to know Islam and their position as Khalifa of Allah.

SADIYA:I had got my lost life from this workshop. I also got back my lost world, friends, brother, sister and relatives etc. I was very lonely, very sad and always used to fight with my brother . Now after attending this workshop I am happy and peaceful. I have started forgiving every one and help others. When I help others after attending the workhop every one is saying to me that ‘something is wrong'. I am thankful to you sir.

REHANA JAFFER:First I was thinking that I cannot study the subjects which I was finding it difficult and I was not able to concentrate on those subjects. But after attending this workshop for three days I donot know what happened to me that my life is changed. Now I think I can do something in my life and this workshop is very useful. I was always fighting with my sisters and wherever my grand mother used to say I did not listen to he but now I am listening to her. I will study hard and get good percentage in SSC exam. If I get it, I will really thank sir, for removing the fear from our hearts.

SADAF BONDRE:I am totally changed after attending this workshop. It is nery useful to all Muslims and every Muslim should attend this workshop at least once. After the workshop I stopped fighting with my sister and brother. After the workshop I am very happy at home and my sister and brother ask me why I am not fighting with them, I said it is because of the workshop at the school. I shared with them every thing of the workshop. I am upset and regret that I could not attend the workshop on day one and day two because of the death anniversary ( Barsi) of my unlce. I want ot be helpful, confident, be pious and kind to everyone in this world.

AIMAN BHATHAR:Before the workshop I was selfish, getting angry for small reasons, I would not listen to my elders etc. But after the workshop I saw many changes in my life in only two days. First I used to fight with my brother but now I don't. First in my school I was not talking to my friend for the last two years but after the workshop I asked forgiveness and we started our friendship. I felt very nice and the experience was great. I have got many more useful things from the workshop, last but not the least I would like to thank Sir, for organizing such a useful workshop. I would suggest to organize the workshop for elders also.

AKBAR MULLA:Before the workshop I was very mischievous, I was snot attending namaz and not concentrating in my studies. I was always having problem. I was always fighting with others, used to tell lies and tease others. But after attending this workshop I am really able to concentrate in my studies and now I am not fighting and teasing. This workshop has really changed me in three days.

I was really a dull person, living a life with no purpose. But the workshop has brought drastic changes in my life. Now I am feeling very light hearted, emotionally free from bad qualities. Most important is that I went on the stage for the first time, it was a very good experience I got confidence. I thank Allah and Sadathullah sir, for giving me a wonderful quality life.

I thank you sir, for each and every thing.

NEEDA:My participation I the workshop has changed my life. Before I was a very short tempered and very sensitive, this created an incomplete feeling in myself and got negative responses from others. But after the workshop I really discovered to be a new person. All my bad qualities, blaming others for wrong happenings in my life disappeared. I feel that today I am a person who has peace, comfort and quality of forgiving. Today I feel I am a true Muslim as I surrendered myself to the will of Allah.

NUSRAT:Before this workshop I am different , I really don't know who I am but after participating in this Islamic workshop I found that my own personality is changed. Before the workshop I live with body and mind but after the workshop I live with body+ mind+ soul = Nusrat. Thank you sir, for this change in my life.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS ARE GIVEN BELOW

UWAIS:It was an amazing discovery into my mind. I did not know I was living in darkness for 24 years and suddenly three days have made me feel like I have been born again. The workshop was an exhilaring experience. I feel as if the entire baggage, which I was carrying for so many years, has been thrown off and I am light and free like a bird to fly.

UBAIDULLAH:This was the unique kind of workshop. I have attended many tarbiyah, workshops and dawah training programmes but this was different. It was an eye opener and many interested things I learnt from this workshop.

YUSUF:I have accomplished more maturity in my day-to-day life and peace, understanding and more sensibility. After attending the first day of the workshop itself my wife could find a difference in me and she was very much surprised and amazed with the change in me.

SALIM:The workshop has opened the doors of fresh air and now transformation has begun in me. Inshah Allah, I will balance my life. Alhamdulillah, now I am feeling free, relieved and satisfied. Such workshops should be held frequently with previous participants for interaction and sharing.

ASHRAF:I came to this workshop with so much inhibitions and prejudices that I was leading a better and perfect life. On the first day itself, I found out, who I am . A volcano erupted inside me and I got enlightenment. I found out the purpose of life and even though I was successful in my professional life but I was not what I should be. I discovered myself.

NISAR:I discovered those Islamic qualities in me, which I always longed for, I thought I will have to learn those qualities but now I found that I already have it. I just have to implement it. I am enjoying love and peace in my family. They also have rediscovered the real Nisar, who was lost amidst various negative attributes. My wife says:” Now I believe that you still love us”.

FAROOQ:The workshop was excellent and interesting. I discovered myself. I got out of my fear and got confidence. I choose to be the Khalifa of Allah.

KAZI:This workshop has given me a treasure of information for transformation of myself. The programme gives us an insight into our own self an opportunity to analyse it. I feel this workshop will bring a big change in my life and I will be responsible for the actions I do in the present and the past will not bog down my present nor struggle for the future.

A. HETAVKAR:I am quick tempered and usually have tendency to react with past experiences. I have learnt in the workshop that the burden of the past should be unloaded and discharged and the present should not be influenced what happened in the past, the art of forgiving. All this is going to create lot of change in my life.

DR. A. KARIM NAIK:Revolutioned my old values, tolerance and not to blame others. This kind of workshops is the need of the time especially in the Muslim community for both ladies and gents. This programme was no doubt a good one but there is greater scope for upgrading

MUMBAI

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS ARE GIVEN BELOW

FAIKA:I am a widow and try hard to give my best to my children. My younger son is mentally retarded and I cannot be with him as I had to work for my living. This workshop has helped me come close to my children. Inspite of expecting anything from others you get a lot from them. Without being asked you get unexpected results, life goes on smoothly without haste. I feel much more lighter than previously what I was with my family and friends. I would like to tell that this workshop really works and changes peoples lives from hell to heaven. A real big difference which no one can give.

BANOO:Although I have heard and read most of the things that have been explained but it gave a new dimension to most of the stuff. This workshop gave me a lot of confidence about myself. I realized a lot of my faults and my relationship will improve with my family members.

SABIYA:I had apprehensions of going to the workshop but after day one I felt very cool and could manage things. I could listen to my husband for 45 minutes continously. I got confidence and courage to accept the people as they are. I hugged my father so intimately after years.

FARHEEN:Everything is moving smoothly, what I want my family members to do, they are doing it without my telling them. Defintely my intention and actions are having effect on them. Yesterday when I went home I shared with my son and my husband about the experience of the workshop till 12 O'clock. My son asked me are you going to sleep I said no I want to perform my Isha prayers. My son said even I want to pray. He again asked me did you pray when you were in the workshop, I said yes. He said I am going to pray qaza namaz of zuhr, asr, and magrib and he performed it. I was present and felt the difference in him.

FARHAT:The Muslim ummah, today, is facing a lot of problems, divorce is on the increase, children are leaving their homes, families are breaking, people are so intolerant toward each other. The basic reason being they are far from the Qur'an. Discover yourself is a very good for knowing oneself and knowing our Lord and doing our duties of Huququl Ibad.

NASEEM:All the members of my family felt that I am a good for nothing. This workshop is a boon to person like me. First of all the most benefited person is myself. I have power and confident of having a good relationship with anyone, no matter who they are?. I am sure my life will run very smoothly ever after. Jazakallah brother.

TABASSUM:I always use to be very confused about my past and I used to be very fearful about my future. Secondly, many a times I was left all alone by my family. I tried a lot for past few years to alter my nature. Here in this workshop I found very precious keys to open the doors of my mind, heart and soul. My thirst for peace of mind has been quenched in these three days. My family members have observed the difference in me.

ZUBAIDA:It was my very first experience of attending such a workshop. I was really enlightened about so many things especially about forgiving. I was closed to the very idea of remarriage as I am a widow, have a son and I was clinging to my beloved husbands memory greatly. I have come to realize through this workshop that in future I might become a nagging mother to my son as I would say to him I brought you up single handedly and I did not marry for your sake and yet you do not care for me blah blah blah…… Now I am open to remarriage by choice and not because someone is forcing me for it. As a coach you have done a tremendous job.

ALMAS:My relationship was not good with my parents specially with my father since childhood. I have seen in my house fights between my parents because of which I am very much disturbed and was worried about my brothers life. After attending this workshop I got my father back. The workshop was very nice, excellent and marvelous. It has changed my full life. I have got every thing. I got my self, I got a way to Allah. Now I am not ‘I' but I am a Khalifa of Allah. Inshah Allah I will be responsible.

SHAZIA:I came to the workshop with lot of expectations and Alhamdulillah, I am so happy that all my expectations are fulfilled. I myself was working on my own since long time, I wanted to improve my self but now I have discovered a new Shazia here who is very enthusiastic, who is living in the present. I am so excited to go back to college after 3 days because they will be meeting new Shazia, whi is loving, patient and merciful, I am so happy that I cannot express. I am ready to accept any challenge. Its great feeling. I have no burden on my head. I am feeling relief.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE STUDENTS ARE GIVEN BELOW

ZUWAIANA:I always thought I am happy and complete but something in my heart was hitting me. I could'nt cope with other people well, I was always thinking about others what will people say about me if I do that or do this? Always thinking of others and I wanted to change others. Sir, you have really given gift of life which I had in me but was searching for it. Sir, you gave me solutions or I can say the keys, to my problems. Inshah Allah I want to be a doctor and before that a wife, a mother and for all these you need to understand the purpose of life. This workshop had really made me understand the purpose of life and the firm foundation of Islam. I am happy that I attended the workshop and for a youth like me, its really necessary to understand the values of life, so that if Allah ask's me that how I spend my youth on the day of resurrection, I will be able to answer Him that I lead a life of happiness, peace and love and overcame all the struggles that came to me and spread peace wherever I lived.

RAZIA:I was suffering for last ten years because of my mother-in-law and because of my mother-in-law my husband was also not talking. So. I felt loneliness and I tried to end my life several times. Today, in this workshop I started to share and 80% of the feeling is gone. I asked forgiveness from my mother-in-law and I am sure this workshop Allah has given me a chance to get my peace and happiness. Inshah Allah, I am sure I will get back my husband and mother-in-law's love by practicing what I learnt from the workshop.

RUBINA:When I heard about this workshop I thought it is like isthima but when I came and attended, it was not so. This workshop was really a big turning point in my life. After attending the workshop I improved my relationship with my husband, my family members, my in- laws etc. I am happy that I got an opportunity to forgive and forget all the bitter things others had done to me. By this I got relieved of all the tensions , all fears, all depressions that was within me. I transformed myself and I saw that my near and dear ones with whom I had problems got transformed. In this three days lot of difference has happened in my life. Today at this last session I got relief of all my bad deeds, sorrows and today I feel I am born once again in this world as a new born child.

AYESHA:Through participating in the workshop I realized who I am and what is my duties. I discovered myself through this workshop. Before I was lazy, short tempered and lots of negatives in me. I was like a stone laying on the way and you sir, and your workshop has turned this stone into a precious diamond. I thank Allah and you for providing me this opportunity to join this workshop. I thank you sir, from my bottom of my heart.

FARHAT:After coming to this workshop, I have learnt to concentrate while praying which I could not before. I can even listen to whatever others say. I know now how to make choice over anything. It has made my life more peaceful and happy. I can share everything with others without any hesitation, which I did not feel like sharing before coming here. Inshah Allah, I hope I will be like this leading my life happily everafter.

RAZIA:First when I heard that there was an Islamic workshop, I had a very different idea. I thought it was the usual bayyans, lectures on the five pillars of Islam, hijab etc. I was a bit confused on the first day not knowing what the coach was trying to tell us. The next day I became clear about the subjects and I came to know that it is not only that you must pray, fast and be in hijab but should clean the base. I should transform my life and in turn transform my family life, my society and then the whole world, Inshahallah. The workshop was very good and I shall put into practice. My relationship with my children, husband, relatives and society have altered and my life is so much pleasant and tension free.

ASMA:After coming to this workshop I realized what, where I was standing and what I have to do now? Before coming here I was praying Allah to give me something which will be helpful for my dunya as well as my akhirah. I got my confidence to live in this world and to face challenges of the people. Before I used to judge everyone and lead the life blindly without any aim. Now I have my aim and feel I have wasted 19 years blindly. Now Inshah Allah I will lead the remaining life with peace, happiness and love. I am choosing myself being Khailfa of Allah and strive to gain His pleasure.

FAHIMA:After second day of the workshop for the first time on reaching home I was happy and relaxed because I forgave my ex-husband for whatever he had done to me. Even though I had been out of the house whole day I was not irritated and restless and that's new because it had happened to me after years. When I went home I was calm and patient, spoke to my brother and my sister. The workshop has made my life easy and shown me how happy and content I can be.

SHREEN:I came to know about this workshop through my brother who is in Bangalore. He called me and said at any cost go and attend . I was wondering which jamat or group this is but my father encouraged me to go and see. After I attended the first day I did'nt find any thing but the second day I felt so impressed and I wished the first day should also be like the 2nd day. I went home and shared with my brother, sister and mother and they all were so impressed and said Masha Allah it really works. This was an excellent workshop.

SAMIA:I was a bit apprehensive about attending this workshop, but I was forced to attend. Now I feel that it was really worth and I would have been unlucky if I had missed it. The workshop has definitely changed my thoughts and attitudes about life. The workshop is an entirely new experience for me and has opened my vies in broader way.

HELD AT MYSORE CITY
ON MAY 2003,  13th 14th & 15th

 

 

 

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS ARE GIVEN BELOW

VIRASATH KHADRI:I have attended many jamats, ijthamas etc. but this sort of experience is entirely a novel experience for me. I had no idea about such a workshop. I was reluctant to attend it. First day I came just to judge its quality, but to my surprise it had a magnetic power upon me and like an iron filings I was there the next day. I would have missed something precious in my life. I am at lost because I couldn't share my experiences of the workshop with my husband as he stays abroad. I did not get him on the first day. On the second day he had phoned me for a few seconds. I told him about the workshop and shared with him that when he will come here this time, he will find me entirely a new woman. He said let me see but right now the phone bill is increasing and he laughed. My youngest son of course noticed changes in me and I saw a change in his behaviour the next day. I have already lost 50 years of my age and I donot want to waste whatever life is being in store for me. I would like to be a player here afterwards rather than sit in the stands. Thanks a lot Sir.

NOOR SABA:Actually I never wanted to attend this workshop. My mother forced me to attend it. I was very much depressed in my life. Ist day of this workshop was a little interesting and I took it lightly and next two days I was happy and did not realized how my life and surroundings have changed. Suddenly I started feeling happy and felt as if a new person has entered in me and suddenly felt everything around me was beautiful and pure. Now I thank God and my mom for forcing me to attend this workshop. Last but not the least I thank my coach for helping my whole family and me.

NOOR ZEBA:This workshop has changed the pattern of my whole life. At first I thought that my husband never ever loves me, he does not care for me, does not spend time with me and so on. I was fed up that I was in state of committing suicide. I never ever thought that this workshop would bring out a new change in myself. I used to pour all my anger on my three-year-old son. But after attending this workshop it has brought a lot of changes in me. I have gained happiness, my heart has become lighter, and I have found peace and contentment. I thank you very much for doing such a great job in changing my whole life. I am really very grateful to you. Thank you once again. Thanks a lot for showing me the right path and introducing me to myself. Thanks a lot.

Dr. BIBI AHMADI KHATOON:This workshop is such an exciting one, which has totally brought me from dark to light. I feel now I am a woman of strength, thoughtfulness and truthfulness and I find it as a solace. I want to be the admirer of God, which I learnt from this workshop. I came to know what is value education, which was given, by our excellent coach, who made life easier and saved from topsy turvey. Actually I was toppling down in this world , now I have a strong stick given by my coach. This workshop is like refreshing our soul.

NURAIN IRSHAD:I used to brood myself. Now I am more positive and cheerful. My children also said that I look happy. I slept well the second night. I did not shout at my children. On the second day I called up the people I never liked before. They were happy. I told my sisters to attend the workshop in Bangalore. It has made a difference in me. The workshop should be conducted for men and women, young and old of our country.

ANEES FATIMA:This workshop has created a big difference in my life and me. There were so many hurdles in my life that I could not think beyond that. At one stage I was praying to Allah to give me death. I thought that it would be the ultimate solution. But I had to live for the sake of my child and only for that I lived a mechanical life and I made a compromise. Now after attending the workshop all my past problems are like small unnecessary matters, which spoiled my four years of married life and two years of my motherly life. I regret for that but I always believe in, better late than never. I thank everyone whole-heartedly for organizing this workshop, as it is an eye opener to each one of us. It is the best workshop I have attended and I want to be a part of it.

NIDA ROOHI:I was a short-tempered person; I wanted things to go my way. I was a very sensitive person and get upset very fast when somebody would tell even a small thing. I had fought with one person for four years just because she had told my secrets to others. After attending the workshop I have discovered that the life in which I was living is a false one. The inner human in me was lost and is found back. It has changed me lot now I am completely a new person. Yesterday after going home I called up my two friends and asked for forgiveness and also forgave them. One of my friends was very happy; we have got our friendship back thank you sir. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks a lot sir I have been another person. I have started loving myself. I have started having a new relationship with my family too. It was too good; I hoped it would have been extended for two more days

RAHAT JAHAN (48 YEARS): I am a working woman. I had lost my parents but my husband and my in-laws were so co-operative that I never thought that I have lost my parents. Soon I lost my in-laws and later my husband nine years back. I was depressed and use to cry whenever any body consoles me by saying the word ‘PAMP' (pitty), she has lost her parents, and in this age she has become a widow too. The word widow and ‘PAMP' irritated me so much that I was not interested in anything and did not attend any functions. I was always weeping and behaving harshly with my five sons who were loving and caring to me. The result is I am diabetic and hypertensive. I was thinking that I will be wasting two days leave by attending this workshop but now I realized that I have lost nothing but instead I gained a lot from these three days. It has not only changed my life but also the future of my five gems (sons) that are precious. I am not finding words to thank this workshop. Now I am the happiest person free from all miseries.

SAIRA MUMTAZ:Masha Allah, I have learnt so many things in this workshop. We realized what we have been doing for so many years. Allah has helped us to alter our self. I have lost my family from the last TWENTY YEARS, now I have found, thank God.

VASEEMA RAHIM (60 YEARS): I feel light, peaceful, contented and purified, may Allah help me to remain the same forever, Ameen. Now I am praying with total concentration. Since, I am forgiving, loving and helpful, I have noticed a sudden change in the attitude of my family members too. Now I am very anxious to bring the same changes in my brothers and other relatives.

FATIMA ANJUM:Just the first day when I entered the workshop I was filled with negative thinking, dis-satisfaction, putting blame on others for the happenings in my life, worrying for small little things etc….. After listening to the coach, I am having peace, satisfaction, and happiness. I am able to concentrate in my prayers. I am relieved now. I have entirely lost my short temper. Inshah Allah I will be my word. I wholeheartedly thank you Sir for changing my life. I will learn to ride two-wheeler, which I for some reason probably my fear had stopped me to learn, but now I will definitely learn.

ALMAS:The workshop has cleared my heart, soul and mind of all filth dumped into it. Sir, has been our friend, philosopher and a guide for 3 daays. Sir's impact on us is going to remain in our heart for the rest of our life. May your tribe increase and may Allah shower all His love and all the worlds happiness on you. I like such workshop to be conducted in different areas. It should also be conducted in high schools for boys and girls, it will be even better because tender minds meed to be mended before they are spoiled.

SALMA:I was bit aggressive and short tempered, at times I use to misunderstand people, give all reasons. Now I understood for what reason Allah has sent us here. Now I have learnt to accept myself and my surroundings as it is and learned to have control over my short temper i.e shaitani harkat. Now I am a new and different person all together from everything (bias etc). Now I don't feel like going home but I should serve humanity. Sir, I should thank you deep from my heart and thank Allah for sending me here. You do not know how much big difference you have done in my life. I got tremendous will power that I can create anything in my life.

FATIMA:This workshop was unforgettable experience in my life. I am very much thankful to God and sir, for transforming me. Before I used to feel, I am an irritated person, I am like this and I can't change myself. But now I have changed to be caring, sharing and loving. I can't express my feelings how happy I am, its like going from heaven after 3 days. Sir, has made my life beautiful, thank you sir, from the bottom of my heart.

SHAKILA:I knew about Islam before from my mother, grand mother, elders, teachers etc. about our prayers, reading Qur'an, not to tell lies, not to cheat others etc. In the workshop I came to know how to apply all these preachings willingly in our real life. Before we were preaching them because we had to, but now we know why we should follow these preachings. I have gained knowledge to apply things which Islam has taught us.

SABAHA:I cherished a longing desire to find myself walking on the path of Islam that did lead me to Allah. I have accomplished my goal through the techniques of this workshop shown by our beloved coach. Allahu Akbar Kabeera, Alhamdulillahi Kaseera! This workshop has enlightened me to accomplish my targets virtuously - Huququllah and Huququl Ibad!. I clinched the opportuniy to motivate my family, helping to forgive and cleanse, bringing them together in peace and tranquility, making a heavenly experience at home on earth.
What opened up for me:

“ Na thi hal ke jab hame apni qabar

Rahe dekhte auron ke aibo hunar

Padi apni burayion par jab nazar

To nigaah me koee bura na raha.”
The presentation was excellent. Allah bless sir, with health, happiness,Peace, prosperity and long life. Jazakallahu qaira!

GAZZALA:It was not that effective on the first day for me. But second day I could really understand. I have come close to people now as I don't have anything against anyone. I have lost a lot of burden. I have learnt to accept people as they are and as they are not, which has relieved me of my tensions. I feel like a bird free and I have entire space to fly high and feel it. I would like you to conduct these workshop even for men.

SABIYA:After attending the workshop I came to know my blind spots and I got a new life which is peaceful, stress free, loving and caring. I could forgive others. I also came to know what attributes of Allah we should have in us to present not only in front of others but also in front of Allah. When I transformed, my daughters transformed which I could not do it for 18 years. I chose my life and my family because I chose it.

RUMAN:It was a very nice experience in the workshop, when others were sharing, so many things opened up for me which I didn't knew and I was dealing in a wrong way. Inshahallah I will accept life as it comes without holding grudges. My family is very happy that I attended this workshop. I am grateful to whatever Allah has given me, this opened up for me in this workshop.

NISHAT:For me this workshop is more and more useful than Islamic istimas and Muslim gatherings. It really opened up my spiritual strength. It is actually very very useful for each and every human being not only for Muslims but for all human beings who Allah has created. Our coach is excellent. Thanks to Allah for giving us a chance to attend and secondly to our coach.

TABASSUM:This workshop is really an eye opener for one's life. I was in fact not willing to come for 3 days as I had some other commitments, but the Ist day itself I was so much involved and impressed that I made it a point ot attend all the three days. One can really clear up all the bitter feelings, they carry on in their lives, even without their knowledge. It helps to live a happy life and also make other people's life happy and joyful. Please, Please conduct such workshop for men also.

SULTANA:I have accomplished lot and lots of new things from the workshop. The experience which I got from this excellent and wonderful workshop is that I learnt to be confident, trustworthy, responsible and satisfied.

RESPONSES OF SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS

SHAISTHA SUBHAN:  I attended the workshop in Chennai with my old mother who is 70 years old.  I thank you for conducting such an excellent workshop. You have opened our minds and hearts, you have showed me the purpose of my life. I feel that I had wasted all my 45 years of my life. I realised all my past mistakes and have asked forgiveness from every one and InshahAllah from today onwards I shall create a new future with my mother and children.

SAMEERA F:  I actually came to the workshop to spend time with my friends, but once the introduction was over, I realised that this workshop is the answer to my dua for addressing issues in my life.  I had lost interest in life and like you said I woke up every day because I did not die the previous night.  Alhamdulillah, now I found a way to make my life better, cheerful and happy.  My experience of the workshop was great and fulfilling.

FAZEELA NURDEEN: A whole new world with a bright future opened up for me.  I am waiting to go out and fill it up with things I love and choose.  I came with a whole lot of questions but I am going back with instant access to the answers from within myself by inspecting and not by expecting.  I wish that all my near and dear ones and every other human being is able to attend this workshop.  I have got the keys to transform my life and I will value it more than any other khazana or locker key.

DR. RAZIA SULTANA: This workshop has been a great for me.  It transformed me in many ways. I have accepted myself the way I am. I have cleaned my past, asked forgiveness to all those whom I have hurt.  I am married recently and I will give 100% to my husband and expect nothing from him. I will make my marriage work wonderful and fantastic.

SAMEENA BEGUM: My experience about the workshop is that it effected my life a lot.  It gave me happiness, peace and love.  All the words went straight into the heart and made me a natural rose and shine like a diamond.  I will be a human being with whatever problems I face.

FARIAH IMRAN: I realised my mistakes that I have done to my family.  Through this workshop I came to know how to lead a simple life and in a right way by making right choices.  I opened up with my daughter; mother-in-law and husband, I experienced fredom.  Last but not the least the workshop had changed the meaning of my life.  I will stand to uplift the Muslim community.

SHAHINA:  Initially I thought it would be as a lecture but was surprised that it was about ‘ME' straight.  It was very useful, as I always wanted to attend a workshop on ‘Personality Development'.  I am glad and Alhamdulillah this workshop is nothing but a reflection of myself, it coached and trained me to deal with any difficult situation in life effectively with the zest for life.  Now I am ready to take any challenge and I have become positive in my actions. The coach is too good as he gives real life experiences and all of us empathize with one another. There is a bonding like never before.

HUSNA:  I have been made aware of my inborn qualities.  I have learnt to accept life from moment to moment.  Now I believe that what Allah chooses for me is the best as he knows what is good for me.  I am contented with all I have ( Alhamdulillah). I would like this workshop to be conducted area-wise as Chennai has a large population of Muslims. I commit myself to be an Ambassador of Allah and be a peaceful, loving, kind and truthful human being. I have found solutions to problems related to my marital life.

AFSHAN BANU: This workshop has opened up new vistas of life for me.  Now I am looking up at life in a new light and I can face any challenge which life throws at me in whichever direction or speed it likes. Inshah Allah I can face it. I thank each and every one concerned for organising such a workshop.

FAKIHA:  After the day one, I could see things and change myself. I spoke to my family members in a calm and cool manner. I felt quite nice inside me. After the second day, I felt as light as the feather and had a wonderful experience of forgiving others. I came close to my family and I got back my whole family, which I thought I had lost, and all my family members are very happy.  I just cannot express the feelings and happiness that I am experiencing. I want to be trustworthy person.

NAZREEN:  I had attended one workshop before and at the end I went back home with nothing much and in a few days it all vanished. But Alhamdulillah, from your workshop I am carrying a load of things with the intention of cleaning my heart from all the impurities which I filled as years passed by, not knowing the consequences. Brother, I really enjoyed the workshop, you made our brains work and opened a New World in me. It is Allah's mercy that he showed me this way and I will be thankful to Allah for the rest of my life and definitely pray for you brother.

KULSUM:  I had been looking for some personality development courses for a long time, but never found anything satisfactory. Allah answered my prayers and sent you here to help me, as I wanted to be helped.  Thank you for opening me up and for giving the keys.  It has helped me to see my mistakes and not blame anybody for the sorrows or for whatever problems in my life.  I have let go off all the grudges, which I had deep down. I have stopped being superficial and being natural now. I will accept everyone for what they are and not grumble. You are the best.

AAFREEN FATHIMA: Firstly, I am very lucky to attend this three-day workshop, which really transformed me to a different  Muslim girl.  Secondly, in most of the bayaans theory or concepts are given and the listeners do not take actions. This workshop dealt practical aspects of ones life.  It really helped me as well as others and all our problems got dissolved. Thirdly, I like to thank Allah, the coach and the organisers for conducting such a good workshop.

SUNITA: Before coming to the workshop I was totally confused person. I just read the pamphlet and came. By coming here I came to know many things. I discovered the inner qualities, which were missing before. I thank Allah for providing me such a great chance to attend this workshop. I stand to marry a Muslim and I am proud to do that.

LUBNA HASEEB: I realised that all this while I had been blaming and making others wrong for my life, where as I now realised that I myself have created those barriers. I know now by transforming myself I can transform others and have peace in life. I realised that I was not being true to myself. I was artificial and I use to hate myself for it. I did not have any aim in life but now I have one. My stand is to be a true Khalifa of Allah.

ATHIYA: I discovered a lot of things. All the ijtamas and Bayans which I attended so far have created in me only what Allah likes and dislikes. I tried to follow that but now I realised there are so many other things in life for which we alone are responsible. My stand right now is to unite my whole family and love everyone for Allah's sake. I am a changed person, now I am at peace within myself.

MAIRAJ: Many mental blocks that I had, cleared up in this workshop. I have stopped blaming others and consider myself responsible for the present situation. I asked forgiveness from people I have wronged and my relationship with my mother altered.

AFZAL MUBEEN: Every topic covered in this workshop was related to my life and I felt this is what I had missed. I have a satisfactory knowledge but lacked the bridge between knowing and implementing it. I got the courage to erase a long pending enmity.

I had negative thinking of others and myself but today I have the confidence to face life, challenges and anything because I have left the past. I came in contact with Allah SWT in the workshop. He was and is with me. I use to curse my life but today " I live myself for Allah's sake." Today I am a newborn baby. I choose to be the Khalifa of Allah.

HUSNA SHARIEF: The first and foremost thing is I am feeling very free, happy, powerful, peaceful and great. I am willing to give up my anger. I want to transform myself and then others will transform by seeing me.

SHARFUNNISA: I got so much I cannot express it now. I want my sisters to attend this workshop. My Qandan to attend this workshop.

Khalifas in Kolkata

Kolkata: A city of culture and charm, Kolkata is known for many more things apart from its rosogollas. It has enlightened men and women to whom acquiring knowledge is a way of life. It was no wonder then that when Editor of Islamic Voice, A. W. Sadathullah Khan conducted the Workshop - Discover Yourself Through Islam, last fortnight here, the response from the youngsters was overwhelming. Sadathullah Khan lent a new perspective altogether to being a Khalifa of Allah. The three-day workshop at Humayan Kabir was organised exclusively for girls-students, housewives and career women. It was a path-breaking effort as with the help of various topics, the participants were set to think on the lines of acquiring the attributes of Allah. For most Muslims, Islam is confined to the rituals of hajj, fasting and praying five times a day. In the workshop, the participants were propelled to look beyond the rituals and get closer to Allah by transforming themselves into the representatives of Allah-Khalifas. This is the first workshop of its kind which touched upon the practical aspects of Hijrat and also on the fact that if one wished to transform others, there was a need to transform oneself first.

"I have started thinking positively about my life and I know that Allah has chosen me for a good purpose," says Ayesha Nasim, one of the participants. Apart from students, members of the All India Muslim Women's Association, Noor Jehan Shakil, Saboohi Aziz, Khashi Ilyas and Asma Alam too participated. Backed by the organisers, Junaidur Rahman, Aijaz Ahmed, Masood Akhtar and Mansoor, the workshop has served as an eye-opener that people can have a closer relationship with Allah.
