    Nothing is so fulfilling than self-knowledge. Thanks to you guys we are educated in the education that transformed human beings centuries back and if properly applied will transform even today’s society.
    May Allah Ta’ala bless you and grow your endeavour in promoting Islam from the perspective of an African child.
