    Salaam – I had the pleasure of randomly meeting you at a Ta’leef event in Chicago last December or so. I enjoyed our brisk conversation about the Umar TV series and I really appreciate the information you share in this blog. Your entries are relevant to the the time, reminiscent of a more harmonious age, and undeniably informative overall. May your ajr be infinitely increased habeeb!
