 was worried that i might miss these lessons as i am returning to Darul-Uloom next week, but I didnt realise we were coming to the end of the course. jzk for this course, it was very beneficial and informative. full of barakah, learnt alot in just afew lessons. May Allah take you and the people behind IK courses from strength to strength and continue taking khidmah from you bil aafiyah mufti @MuadhChati @muhammednoohriyad 

I thought the least I could do in return is to show my appreciation and a short dua.
