I'm happy to see you've started including fiction again in your esteemed magazine. I know you always publish stuff that's relevant to youth, whether education or entertainment related, but you do have to realize that most of it, especially the tips and tricks, is easily available on the internet and, hence, not really adding value. On the other hand, original stories - and poems - increase readers' interest and, from our perspective, let us know that we have a platform. Of course, stories like Sanniyah Eman's Violet Vipers have set the bar high and we’ll have to strive hard to get there, but I think that only makes the whole thing more interesting.

Hi Ehsan, thank you for your feedback. We would like to point out here that not all of our how-tos are lifted from articles online. Most of them are actually from speaker sessions that we cover and would like our readers to benefit from as well! That said, we love our contributors; their contributions need not necessarily be stories only.
If the write-up is interesting and youth-oriented, then we would definitely consider it for publication.
I just read the story by Lala Rukh Naz (Straight from the heart) in your magazine. It impressed me a lot and gave me hope. I pray Allah gives you prosperity and success.

I am a new reader and my favourite segment is ‘The Green Room’. I think you should give more space to local movies and plays. ‘Comic Relief’ should have two pages!

Narrated by Abu Huraira (R.A)
Allah's Apostle (S.A.W) said, "A man used to give loans to the people and used to say to his servant, 'If the debtor is poor, forgive him, so that Allah may forgive us.' So when he met Allah (after his death), Allah forgave him."
