Assalaamu ‘alaikum ukht.
Do you have ALL of these books? Mashaa`Allaah, that’s ONE collection!
wa `alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh Umm J!!!
I’ve missed you… I’ve missed the net! It’s been so hectic!
As to the books, yes I do have them alhamdulillah, except for the Golden Series (I have some of them but am wondering if I should get the rest for Ms Muffet…) I was on a Seerah craze you could say!
Some were gifts and some I purchased here in PK – they are cheaper here than in most places!
BTW, I miss your Book Reviews!
