Let me tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed the interview of Aamina Hashmi (July 24 issue). The girl is amazingly talented, focused and articulate. It was a pleasure to know that we have such talented young people in Pakistan. I checked out her Instagram account and discovered more of her beautiful work. I realise you could not have printed all her pictures, but may be you should do a pictorial on her pieces like you sometimes do.

I am a new reader of Us and enjoy articles, stories and poems by Us writers. My sister is an ancient reader of Us and she says that Us has always been blessed by wonderful writers. Ed, I have written a couple of articles and I want to mail them to you, but I feel scared because I don’t know whether you will like my stories or not. I know I cannot write stories like Iqra (I love Hackschool Project) but still would like to try my luck. Should I mail my stories to you? Also, I like ‘Poets; Corner’ and ‘Quiz Whizz’ a lot. I think comic strips should be of Pakistanis, though.

Please mail your articles, Daisy. We are blessed with wonderful writers who are now famous among Us community, but there was a first time for all of them. We will wait for your contributions.
I loved the cover page of this week’s issue; it was very artistic. It was good to see my ‘greeting’ in the ‘Greetings’ section, but my friend’s greeting was not published. Ed, she was really disappointed!

Hey Aniqa, we took as many greetings as we could, but it was done on ‘first come first,’ serve basis; due to space constraints.
Narrated ‘Abdullah (R.A):
The Prophet (S.A.W) drew a square and then drew a line in the middle of it and let it extend outside the square and then drew several small lines attached to that central line, and said, “This is the human being, and this, (the square) in his lease of life, encircles him from all sides (or has encircled him), and this (line), which is outside (the square), is his hope, and these small lines are the calamities and troubles (which may befall him), and if one misses him, an-other will snap (i.e. overtake) him, and if the other misses him, a third will snap (i.e. overtake) him.”
