NADIRA: I was short tempered, complaining, worrying about the past or the future. This is my fifth time, I am attending the workshop. Yes, the workshop has helped me to say ‘IT’s OK’ or ‘Let it Be’., because of which I do not get angry very soon. I have learnt to be in the present, stop blaming others, learnt to keep my word and have learnt to be a good listener. I learnt to forgive others who have wronged me. The benefits I got in my participation is happiness and peace within me. My family members are wondering how I have changed so much. After attending this workshop. I feel good.
KAVIYA: Before the workshop, I lacked confidence in life and was not able to control my mind. But after this valuable workshop, I got my confidence back, I got to know all my abilities and also came to know who am I? Even my family members were surprised by seeing the changes in me. I felt after attending this workshop, “what lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us”.
MARY: This workshop is very interesting. My life is completely changed. It changed my behavior, my speaking skills and everything in my life. I used to get angry when my mom used to scold me, but now I am avoiding my anger. I will never forget what I learned in this workshop.
DR JABEEN: I was learning Quran, for the last ten years and this workshop helped me to open my mind and showed me how to live Islam as a way of life. This is the second time I am attending the workshop. First time itself, I had found a marvelous change in me and was working every day on the shortcomings, the struggle was on. This workshop helped getting a deeper insight into the things happening in and around like a jigsaw puzzle and the pieces falling into its place. The process was all within, but changed everything. Alhamdulillah!!
SHABRIN: Before, I was not able to describe who I am? And today I can say I am responsible and accountable. I was living in the past and was wasting my present, now, I know how to utilize the present and make my future. I changed my bad habits and now I can treat every human being as a human being not like an object.
NAJMA: Before the workshop, my life was difficult to live and sadness was there in my life. I had forgotten all my responsibilities towards others. After the workshop, my life is changing and I am now responsible and forgiving to everyone in my life. Now my life has become a true life to live with happiness and joy, helping others and loving each other, because we all are human beings.
QURATH: Before the workshop, I was unable to judge myself, that where I am going wrong? But feeling good on the third day that” what I could not recognize for 17 years, I recognized in just two days.” My mother is my only family, she was really happy that I apologized for my mistakes for the first time in really a good manner. It was very useful for me. Thank you so much sir. Now I am happy with what I am! And what I have!
NAUREEN: It helped me to know what actually Islam is? I was unaware of the internal beauty of Islam. Now, after attending this workshop, I literally feel haapy to be a Muslim. As a Muslim I was only aware of the external five pillars and after getting to know so many things I will implement them in my daily life to have inner peace. Thank you for conducting the workshop and bringing awareness about different concepts of Islam.
SARFARAZ: My life before the workshop was full of worries and tension. After attending the workshop, I felt free from worries because of the many tools learned in the workshop. I stopped judging others.
SHAREEF: It is rejuvenating. Felt the change in my life right away after attending for the first time, which was recharged after the second time. It helps to keep attending this workshop periodically.
KAMRAN: This is the second workshop. I am grateful to Allah that I had an opportunity to attend the first session initially. Having attended it, I realized that the past was pinning me down. From the perspective, Dr Sadath Sir he taught us, I was able to let go of a lot of things and focus on things that matter. It is very much needed, should have more workshops often including at the Masjid level.
