Us is doing a great job. Lexicology piece “Robot” (July 12) was quite informative. I am really missing entertainment articles in Us. I know they are published everywhere but I don’t find them interesting. I remember Us would run really cool pieces on music and films!
I would suggest more sections to “The Green Room”; maybe add a little review of the spotlight movie. There should be a section on Pakistani music and films.
Can we contribute jokes? Actually, I write jokes and funny blurbs for a publishing house in America. So I was wondering if I could send some of the unpublished ones to you people.
Yes, you can contribute jokes! Just make sure they are appropriate for our audience (youth).
I love writing stories and have also written some during this summer break. I am thinking of sending them for publication but I’m not sure if they are worth publishing. What should I do to make my stories youth-friendly?

Hi Aaira, we strongly advise you to first read the magazine, as it will give you an idea about the type of stories we publish.
Narrated by Abu Bakar (R.A)
Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) said thrice, “Shall I not inform you of the biggest of the great sins?” We said, “Yes, O Allah’s Apostle” He said, “To join partners in worship with Allah: to be undutiful to one’s parents.” The Prophet sat up after he had been reclining and added, “And I warn you against giving forged statement and a false witness; I warn you against giving a forged statement and a false witness.” The Prophet kept on saying that warning till we thought that he would not stop.
