SALIM: MY life was ‘My way and not Allah’s way’. This workshop has changed ‘My way’ to ‘Allah’s way’. I have never attended before, such a wonderful workshop. You are doing a wonderful job, please continue doing, Allah will help you. I discovered myself who I am? My family members were shocked to see the changes in my life.
WAJIHA: Before the workshop, I wanted everyone to live according to my way, but now I realized that everyone must live according to Allah’s way. This workshop gave me the power to forgive my friend. This was a very emotional moment for me, and I was literally crying.
NOUMAN: It gave me the tools to fight the Satan. I had known about life, but the problem is that I did not have any tool to correct myself or to see Haq and Batil (Truth and Falsehood). After the workshop, life became easy and enjoyable. My family members see the changes in me. I feel that the veils are taken off and I can see clearly. Now, I am in that position to distinguish between Haq and Batil and accept reality.
FURQAN: On the first day when Sir, said ‘ A new man will walk out on the last day from here, I thought he was joking.’ But now I can realize that how it has changed me and my thoughts. It helped me understand who I am and what are the basic principles of life? It was awesome.
NASIR: Sir, I was very confused regarding the heart, mind, body, logic- reasoning, and wisdom etc. But after attending this workshop, almost everything is clear. You are doing excellent work and this message should reach everyone.
MEHRUNISA: Before the workshop, my life was spent on knowing the religion, but I did not know myself. Now, after the workshop, I came to know who am I ? Alhamdulillah, many changes I could notice, and will never listen to the instincts of my waswas. This workshop should be held in schools and colleges so that the younger generations learn a way of life of forgiveness and bring in changes.
LUBNA: Before the workshop, my mind was diverted between the past and the future, life was full of tension. But, after the workshop, I feel relief, living in the present, I feel life is beautiful. My family members are very happy. This workshop has changed my personality holistically.
FIZA: Before the workshop, I thought that I am right and others are responsible for the adverse circumstances in my family. Now, after the workshop, I have changed my opinion towards others. I felt that sometimes I am also responsible for the adverse situations. I should not impose my views on others without taking their suggestions. If I would not have attended the workshop I would have missed out many valuable things about life.
SIFWA: Life before the workshop: I was caught up in a web of confusion in making decisions. Life after the workshop: No more fear of being wrong or right; I feel like having attained stability of mind and clarity of thought. If I would have missed this workshop, it would have been a great loss in my life. I wish my entire family was part of this workshop. It is an excellent start to be able to see the reality and to bring oneself back to the real world.
TUBA: Being the only child of my parents, I was a very frustrated and short-tempered girl. I always thought that my parents are over possessive about me and they do not trust me. But after the workshop, I found myself very relaxed and light. I feel all my burden has fallen and I feel free. It is an amazing, valuable and satisfactory workshop.
