AMIR: I used to be a perfectionist and used to ensure I made my point of view implemented as I considered that my point of view was logical, scientific and religious, but now I will see from the perspective of reality in everything. It is too short to see the responses from my family, but Alhamdulillah, I feel tremendous change in our relations. I can see peace and tranquility and lots of love in the family. Now I am willing to give up my perfectionist attitude.
AFROZA: Before the workshop, everything in my life was happening by itself, without my participation and interest unconsciously, but now after attending this workshop, I am doing each and every activity of my life using the tools I learnt from the workshop consciously. I removed from my heart all the burdens of jealousy, nervousness about my friends and relatives. Now, I am restarting from zero to achieve 100%. I am giving up my ego, procrastination and my attitude of taking life easily without caring to perform and live my each second of life happily.
MASOOD: I was hanging 100% in the past and was making decisions of my future on that basis. Anger, hate and jealousy were my daily tonic. Many times I cut my hand because of hatred towards my family. But now inshallah, the new dawn will arise in my life with lots of happiness and peace.
GULSHAN: When I went home on the second day of the workshop, my ten year old daughter brought her bag for home work. I also sat near her and embraced her with love. She was looking again and again, in wonder she said , it is you or another mum. Now I will not be angry with my children if they are not studying well, I will tell them calmly. I am feeling relaxed and have peace of mind. I will begin a new life with family, friends’ neighbours and all.
MUNAWAR: I was an egoistic person and became very angry due to trivial matters. But after this workshop, I have become a calm person and learned how to control my ego and anger. I learned how to forgive people and now I can make correct decisions. It is an awesome workshop for today’s generation and should be conducted regularly in our community.
MIRZA: I was emotionally disturbed. I came here just be away from my house. But when I attended the workshop, it totally changed my life. I am very happy and now I am enjoying my life. I got the power and I can do anything and everything is possible. May Allah give you success in your endeavour.
LUBNA: This workshop was beneficial to me and helped me to understand that carrying tensions, pressure or load of criticism in our head gives nothing, but avoiding it gives a lot of peace, relaxation, consciousness and responsiveness. My husband felt that I am now patient and think before I accept criticism. Jazakallah Br. Sadathullah.
AHMED: It is a life changing experience. I was also considering my father as an old man having very old thoughts, but now I am looking at him as handsome, intelligent and a very advanced man.
ZUBAIR: I read so many books on personality development written by western scholars, but this is the first time, I attended a seminar on personality development with an Islamic touch. I request you to please continue and write a book on this topic.
IMRAN: My life was full of stress and agitation. My burden has reduced. I gained knowledge and tips on controlling my ego and improving my family relations with spouse, parents and upbringing my children.
IKRAM: I have attended this programme with my son. Thanks to Allah who gave us an opportunity to attend this workshop with my son. It is an excellent workshop. There is a feeling of excitement and contentment. It is very useful for everyone. My son also appreciated this workshop very much. I wish he will be a good human being. This type of workshop is needed today because everyone is egoistic.
TOUFIQ: My life was heading on the path of ego, satan and negativity. Now I have determined to walk on the path of the Divine (Allah), positivity and demolish my ego. I found the workshop very beneficial, useful and the presentation was very effective.
