Hi Ed,

‘Landing your job interview’ by Jawwad Ahmed was a useful read. I can vouch for the fact that calling up organizations after sending CVs is a very smart thing. It gives the employer the feeling that you are really interested to work in their organization. I got my job by doing exactly that. I was very polite about it and started the conversation with ‘sorry to bother you…’, but it worked! So please keep printing articles that can help young job hunters.

Dear Ed,

I have been reading ‘Violet vipers’ by Saniyyah Eman with interest. It occurred to me that since the story started, the status of Indian occupied Kashmir has changed. The silence of Islamic countries is deafening, and has encouraged the Indian government to unleash an unparalleled reign of terror in the history of mankind. Since we cannot do anything to help them (as we are such a strong country!) we should at least pray for them, and do anything in power to highlight the plight of Kashmiri people. Saniyyah’s is a good initiative, and I hope other young people across the globe follow her example.

Dear Editor,

‘Hackschool Project 23’ (Nov 8) was the first story I read. I simply love Iqra Asad’s writing style and every week I wait for the next episode of Hackschool. You would not believe it, but I have a brother so like Jasir! What makes the Hackschool Project is its relatable characters and the studies related episodes that take place in the story which we as students experience. More power to you, Iqra!

Hey Ed,

I must say Lexicology was awesome this week! It was a treat for my nerdy brother who loves everything related to science. In addition, ‘Comic Relief’ and ‘Poets’ Corner’ were good too. Keep up the good work, Team Us!

Narrated by Mujahid (R.A)

Abdullah bin ‘Umar (R.A) said, “Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) took hold of my shoulder and said, ‘Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveller.” The sub-narrator added: Ibn ‘Umar used to say, “If you survive till the evening, do not expect to be alive in the morning, and if you survive till the morning, do not expect to be alive in the evening, and take from your health for your sickness, and (take) from your life for your death.”
