* It helped me to see other people as human beings and that they have feelings. It helped me forgive other people.
* After the first day, many things happened in my heart. I removed the veils from my eyes and I forgave my mother-in-law, treated her well and created a new relationship. I promised her that I will take care of her.
* It was motivating, interesting, encouraging, touching and very beneficial.
* It helped me in many ways, the best part is that I apologized to my parents for my mistakes.

FATIMA: Before the workshop, I used to be stubborn, egoistic and an angry person. After the second day, anger went out of my character. I am at ease and happy. I have lot of family problems and financial problems, but now I have accepted this is my life, no one can change it. Forget the past and live in the present.
FARIHA: My life was stressful, worried and seemed hard. Now, I am able to differentiate between good and evil and so on. I have stopped judging and worrying about other’s opinions. The workshop has made me brave forever and taught me to be grateful to Allah. I will remain grateful to sir throughout my life for this wonderful transformation in myself. Thank You.
HAJIRA: Allah has selected you to remove the blindness, and guide people with His help. Alhamdulillah! After attending this workshop for the first time, I decided to get married and Alhamdulillah, I am married now. In this workshop, I learnt not to Judge people and do maximum good to all the creatures of Allah.
NAMMERA: I felt as though I was in a cage and I always had questions for everything, and I felt whatever is happening with me is not good and I felt I was bad. I felt no one likes me and they always do partiality, I was irritated and jealous. I felt I should not forgive everyone and even though I know the purpose of living, I did not apply it in my life. I used to pray, read the Quran, but still I always had questions. After the workshop, I felt as though my heart is pure and I do not have anything in me. I forgot everything. I started a new life.
FEMIRA: Earlier, I used to fight with my sister, after the first day of the workshop itself, I changed and I was able to feel it. I got rid of my ego, my anger my judgments, opinions comments etc… Now I am positive and I will take everything in a positive way, Inshallah. I want to implement whatever I have learnt in this workshop in my life. I will surely be a good human being. Please do not stop this workshop. May Allah give you good health to continue this workshop, Sir.
SAFIYA: I literally think that I was a dumb before this workshop. A person who knows, but does not act, who judges but not submits. I was a person who wished for a life that I wanted, but from now on, I will be a person who Allah wants me to be, and the world does not bother me anymore. I am feeling relaxed, no more burdens on me. I am happy as my family is happy. I am a human being not an “ego”.
