Salams. Yet again blessed to be part of this kabilah (convoy) which are like lions during the day and sufis in early mornings deep in contemplation & prayer. Three imams led us in qiamul lail & subh prayers from 3 nations. A senator from Mauritania sheikh oumar, Dr Usamah fr Kuwait and a hafiz fr Jordan. Different readings n rendition of the Quran!
Quiz: how many styles of reading of
the Quran are known?
And there were two occasions when we did "sajdah" when ayat2 sajdah were recited.
Quiz: how many ayat2 sajdah r there in the Quran? Is there any surah which has two of it? If so name the surah!
I learnt a chant (or they call it yells during our scouting days) Power!
Bir-ruh; Bid-dam; Nafdiq ya-Aqsa meaning "Our souls & our blood, we
will do just about anything for you, oh! Aqsa" Awesome!
The AqsaSyarif boys
cooked us all a yummylicious dinner last night. Even my maid with modern
rice cooker does not boil rice as good! Two flavours of lamb curry. Extra hot for big boys n mild for lousy Pakistani guts:) And Shazee has
inherited her lousy gut genes:) And the daging was like sooo tender. And we had
special guest fr Italy, NZ, Algeria, UK etc n they had like two-three rounds! For desert we had grapes , dates n Azra special pathan tea.
