Query

Dear Ed,

I like to write fantasy and adventurous stories and when I see people write in your magazine, I feel inspired. My question is how I can submit my stories. And what should be the word count?


Faiz

Hi Faiz, thank you for your feedback! You can send your stories to [email protected]

Word count really depends on your write-up; as you may know, we take episodic stories too. Generally, for one page, the word count is 550-650; for two pages, it is 1100-1200 words; for three pages, you can email 1500-1700 words.

Arrival City - Exhibition & Symposium

Karachi (June 8-9; exhibition will continue till June 23)

How does migration change the cities? How does it manifest in architecture, housing, services, and public space ordering? What happens in the urban space when newly arriving inhabitants from all around the world start to make use of it?

These are the central questions of a touring exhibition by the German Museum of Architecture in Frankfurt and the Goethe-Institut.

Venue: Commune Artist Colony


Reflection

Narrated by Abu Huraira (R.A)

Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) said, “While a man was walking on a road. he became very thirsty. Then he came across a well, got down into it, drank (of its water) and then came out. Meanwhile he saw a dog panting and licking mud because of excessive thirst. The man said to himself “This dog is suffering from the same state of thirst as I did.” So he went down the well (again) and filled his shoe (with water) and held it in his mouth and watered the dog. Allah thanked him for that deed and forgave him.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals?” He said, “(Yes) There is a reward for serving any animate (living being).”
