In the December 24 edition of Us, I loved the sports year ender by Muhammad Nabeel aka Nabeel Naqvi. His style of writing is so good that I don’t think anyone can leave any of his write-ups in the middle for anything. I have to read it in one go.
I was disappointed a bit, Ed, because my greeting was not included in December 31 issue. I think ‘Greetings’ section should feature in the mag more often. We all have near and dear ones in different cities and countries, and ‘Greetings’ section allows us to wish them in a novel way. Wishing on birthdays via Us is very cool, you know! Hope you start ‘Greetings’ at least bimonthly.

We regret not including your greeting, Shujah, but we got it very late. We will publish the ‘Greetings’ section if your request is seconded by other readers.
Why is Iqra Asad trying to turn Hina into a typical malicious sis-in-law? It’s Hina’s mom who is ridiculous! Hina’s character should not be tainted like this. A little chagrin is understandable, but holding her friend responsible is juvenile. Please don’t turn their beautiful friendship sour, Iqra!
A concerned reader,
I am fast becoming a fan of Amna Ameer. Her poems are delightful and I wait for them in ‘Poets’ Corner’, but her prowess in prose is nothing to be scoffed at. The girl is super talented and simply amazing. I love the fact we have such talented young poets. The poetry published in Us is of very good quality and I am happy that our poets have a platform like Us to showcase their talent.

I have noticed that Us has been publishing articles on mental health periodically. I really appreciate it because people like me who are not great at serfing the net prefer to read books and magazines. In December 10 issue, I liked the article ‘Submarine force – the hallmark of Pakistan Navy’. It’s good to now that our country has such a formidable Navy.

Narrated Mu’adh (R.A):
I was a companion rider of the Prophet (S.A.W) on a donkey called ‘Ufair. The Prophet asked, “O Mu’adh! Do you know what Allah’s right on His slaves is, and what the right of His slaves on Him is?” I replied, “Allah and His Apostle know better.” He said, “Allah’s right on His slaves is that they should worship Him (Alone) and should not worship any besides Him. And slave’s right on Allah is that He should not punish him who worships none besides Him.” I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Should I not inform the people of this good news?” He said, “Do not inform them of it, lest they should depend on it (absolutely).”
