ASHOK: My perspective of ‘Islam’ and the people who follow it changed. Now I feel ‘Islam’ is a scientific religion and very simple to follow.
ASMA: I used to be very aggressive and never used to open up, but Alhamdulillah after the first day of the workshop, I opened up with my family, friends and relatives. The workshop helped me to show my blind spots and my negative side which people expected me to change and I have changed. I have taken control of my anger. I thank you for all your efforts to help people change their perspective of life. You have changed my life and I am so impressed with your coaching.
HADDAD( 12 years): Before the workshop I used to get angry when someone irritates me or makes fun of me. But now, I have learned to ignore them, I do not fight them back and all this has happened only because of the workshop.
NASIMA: Alhamdulillah, this workshop changed the whole perspective of my life, the view towards each other was completely rejuvenated. The workshop gifted me to see things from the reality point of view and be in the state of submission. Alhamdulillah, I never had such a blessed weekend before. Jazakallah Khair, I do not think I can ever thank you enough for this and thanks to Allah for this opportunity and for selecting me for His blessings.
SAID: Before the workshop, I used to judge and give opinions. Inshahall, I will be in the state of submission now. My family were very impressed with my new changed approach towards them.
SALMI: I was blaming everybody in my life without notice. Now, I realized, to see myself and stop doing that. I came to know how to make decisions based on consequences and not on justifications. To live life as a gift and not as a punishment. Before I was angry with my parents and colleagues. Now I understood the reason why I hate everybody, the reason is me and I have to change my way of treating others as objects, and to treat them as human beings.
NOMAN: I had lot of complaints before I came and I found faults in everyone close to me. In the workshop, I realized the problem is me and not others. When I went home after the first day, I cared about my family and I smiled more, I was very hungry still I attended to them first. On the second day, I saw everyone in a different way and I am sure they saw me in a different way. I listened when they shared with me, I smiled more and I asked them to do things with a smile, less of commanding. I am out of the commentator box, stopped criticizing and giving opinions.
RINOSE: Before the workshop, I was treating my children angrily. After the workshop, I started to feel the changes in me and I noticed when I started to treat kindly, they responded more than earlier times. I could feel that I started to see the reality without glasses. Now I migrated to ‘Truth’ from ‘Evil’. I experienced that this workshop was very good and the way of teaching and methodology was excellent.
AMBREEN: I feel, I am a better human being now. I have started the journey of self discovery. I have always looked for a purpose in life, as I believe that every human being is important and has some purpose in life. I feel I am committed to make a difference.
AZMATH: The workshop was very good in terms of content, management and especially Mr Khan’s way of presentation. I hope my life would change after attending this workshop.
DR.ZIAUDDIN: Every Muslim should attend this workshop, to know the inner-self in the light of the Quran and Hadith. It showed us the reality. The best of ever I have attended and the only one, with an Islamic Perspective.
MISBAH: The workshop had a perfect impact on me. It forced me to think with a fresh perspective. The entire thought process and its basics are now clear to me, “mind over matter’- which was an often repeated mantra is clear to me now. Success lies in good thoughts and actions. The entire mechanics was laid open in front of us today Subhanallah, I am still reeling. It was truly well organized.
