Emails are nice, but good old handwritten letters are nicer. And you know what is EVEN better?
Today, I received a lovely gift from Umm Obaidah. I call it my almost-surprise because while it was not unexpected – we are both participating in a swap organised by Farhana – I was so thrilled when it arrived that it sure felt like a surprise :) Make sense?
Anyway, Umm Obaidah has given me a WONDERFUL book. It is entitled The Invocation of God by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya. He is one of my favourite authors, so I know that I will enjoy reading this.
Jazakillah khayran Umm Obaidah … may Allah increase us in `ilm and imaan ameen :)
Wooohoooooooooo, isn’t this swap just great! InshaAllah, you will get to enjoy this book. A postcard is coming your way to Pakistan!
This is my 3rd attempt at sending this comment. LOL!
Aside from the Qu’ran sis, this is my favourite book. It is written by Ibn Al Qayyim (rh) who was also known as the Doctor of the Hearts. This book is an absolute treasure and is very deep. Savour each word as you read it.
How can I get involved in these book swaps??

Umm Nassim: I owe you for telling me posted about al the goodies on the www!
Umm Raiyaan: Sister Farhana organises all kinds of swaps! She has done arty-crafty ones, charity efforts and this is her latest. Look out for the next one… pressure her to organise one hehe or… here’s an idea, organise one on IHSAN :)
