Hello Ed,

‘Life during lockdown’ by Lubna Jerar Naqvi (May 22) was hilarious. I think Ms Naqvi should write more often because I want to laugh or smile while reading articles and stories in my favourite mag! No offense intended, but most of the write-ups are too serious for my liking.

Hi Editor,

I enjoyed the recipes section during Ramazan and I hope you will continue it. You are probably aware that young people love to cook and experiment too. In the issue of May 22, I loved the no bake recipes but can assure you that those of us who are into cooking can actually bake well. Feel free to share more complex recipes!

Hi Ed,

Just read Hackschool Project # 28: Intentions and inclinations by Iqra Asad (May 29 issue), and here I am, typing away immediately because I know how indolent I am! I had been waiting for it for quite some time now, but it was worth waiting for. I simply adore the siblings’ interactions with each other and their parents, as I have three siblings and can relate to a lot of stuff Iqra writes, especially about turns at computer! When there is gap between the instalments of Hackschool Project, it bothers me! I want it to have some sort of conclusion; I want to have closure! And once all the siblings get where Iqra wants them to reach, perhaps she can do standalone episodes. It’s the suspense that kills me and the fear that Iqra would stop writing due to any reason, leaving us readers high and dry! Please take this into consideration, Iqra!

Hi Ed,

The issue of May 29 was cool! The cover story by Iqra Asad rocked! I must praise ‘A plan for shelf-isolation’ by SG. I am an avid reader and have already read a couple of books mentioned in the article. I suggest you all out there to get the books mentioned; they will really help you overcome boredom. Eddie, when are we going to get summer movies? After the summer books, it’s only reasonable that we should get summer movies soon!

Narrated 'Ubada (R.A):

The Prophet (S.A.W) said, "If anyone testifies that None has the right to be worshipped but Allah Alone Who has no partners, and that Muhammad is His Slave and His Apostle, and that Jesus is Allah's Slave and His Apostle and His Word which He bestowed on Mary and a Spirit created by Him, and that Paradise is true, and Hell is true, Allah will admit him into Paradise with the deeds which he had done even if those deeds were few." (Junada, the sub-narrator said, " 'Ubada added, 'Such a person can enter Paradise through any of its eight gates he likes.")
