  3. Dear Team Members,

    Assalaamu Alaikkum. I have sent my write-up for the competition on “Hajj” and to my surprise, I didn’t hear anything from you as to whether it is selected for publication or not. So, can I request you for a reply in this regard?

    Jazakallah Khair!

    Yours truly, Sulthan Ghori

    • Wa alaikumus salam wa Rahmatullah.

      Just now the last date got over. It was 4th Oct. and today is 8th. Do you think it is easy to do things in such a short time? It will take its own time to finalise the results. So have patience.
      For further clarifications e-mail them your concern.
      Jazakallaahu Khayr.

  4. Dear team members,

    Assalaamu Alaikkum. Please let me know whether my write-up is selected for publication or not. If it is not selected, please guide me as to how I should improve my writing, so that I can serve the Muslim Ummah in a better way.


    Yours truly, Sulthan
