السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
It’s Thursday 30th July 2020. Today, I would like to officially launch ‘https://hdreflections.com/‘.
As we went into lockdown, I started reflecting upon the reasons why our Creator may be upset with us. With the purpose of Self Rectification, I started writing messages from the 26th of March. A colleague from Blackburn kindly edited my first few messages. Then, a friend contacted me, and kindly agreed to edit the messages, as well as collect them under the title, ‘Self Reflections‘.
I shared some of my earlier messages with my respected teacher and mentor Shaykh Muḥammad Saleem Dhorāt حفظہ اللہ, the founder and rector of the IDA, in Leicester. Shaykh Saleem حفظہ اللہ suggested that all the messages should be collected together. The same advice was given to me by another friend, Mufti Ashfāq of Bradford.
With the Blessings of Almighty Allāh and the DuꜤās of my elders, on this most blessed of days, it is an honour and privilege for me to launch ‘https://hdreflections.com/‘.
As well as the ‘Self Reflections’, the website will include a Travelogue of short accounts of some of ‘My Travels‘, which began in 1986 and are still ongoing .مَا شَآءَ الله
The ‘Moon Sighting‘ section will include articles I have written on a subject very close to my heart, with the intention of uniting the Muslims of the UK on 2 of the most important days of the Islamic calendar اِنْ شَاءَ الَّلهُ.
For snippets from the lives of Akābirīn and other notable personalities, head to ‘Great Lives‘, which includes some very interesting anecdotes from Ḥaḍrat Mawlānā Yūsuf Motālā Ṣāḥib نور الله مرقده, as well as insights into some distinguished Marḥūmīn, such as Junaid Jamshed رَحْمَةُ الله عليه.
Almighty Allāh has blessed me with spending time in the company of Mufti Taqī Usmānī مدظله العالی, including traveling to several countries. All articles related to Muftisab can be easily accessed from the ‘Mufti Taqī Usmānī’ page.
The website, first and foremost, is for myself and my self rectification. Thereafter, if it benefits my family, friends, colleagues and close associates, it is an extra bonus for me. Please feel free to visit the website and share it with your near and dear ones.
You are more than welcome to give me your comments and suggestions, via the contact page.
Almighty Allāh make it a means of a successful life for all of us in this world, and a means of entrance into Jannat ul-Firdaus in the Hereafter, Āmeen.
جَزَاكَ اللَّهُ خَيْرًا
