August -- Book Pre-launch


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.

We are all concerned about trying our best in doing more and doing better, aren't we? And hope for august outcomes.

That's a better focus to have than to focus on justifying our actions, as said the wise Uwaiz Al-Qarni (copying this from a friend's FB):

'The wisest advice you can take on in your life is not to be so concerned with what is said about you. Indeed, you know who you are and Allah knows best your circumstances and intention. So don't lessen your worth by always justifying your actions, for indeed failure in life lies in one thing: Trying to please everyone.'

But who cares to please the -ve lot? I don't. I know, neither do you. 

Because +ve progress is the way to go, yesterday my small team and I played our small part for the pre-launch of a Malay translation of Dr Jasser Auda's Arabic book about women and mosque. Hence, the book in Malay is called Wanita dan Masjid. It's a collaboration with a young couple from Akademi Intelektual Muda. Hope to be able to get it published soon bi-iznillah.

Some pics to mark this small milestone for Exa Publishing and Al Falah TV. Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah for this big opportunity for small people like us. Pray Allah will facilitate us in implementing our intentions and grant us success. Ameen.
