Monday, 08 Sha'ban 1434
I am happy to announce that, at long-last, arrangements are being made for me to conduct, Insha Allah, an All-Day Seminar on Islamic Eschatology ['Ilmu Ākhir al-Zamān] in Karachi, Pakistan, on Dhū al-Qa'ada 21st., 1434 [Saturday October 26th., 2013]. The venue in Karachi will be subsequently announced.
Those (both male and female) who would like to spend the day with me in Karachi studying and discussing the subject, should register with my Assistant, Sister Nora Uzir, at
. Please provide your name, city of residence, educational and religious profile, as well as such personal data as may help me when making my assessment....
While there is no registration fee for participating in the Seminar, it would be helpful if two things can be avoided:
a) waiting until the very last moment to register;
b) registering for the seminar and then robbing others of a chance to participate by either omitting to deregister, or failing to turn up for the seminar.
Kindly note carefully the following:
i) the seminar will be conducted in English, but I will try as best as I can to use my limited Urdu to assist in explanations;
ii) seating arrangements for men and women will be exactly as it was in the Masjid in Madina, i.e., men sitting at the front facing the speaker, and women sitting directly behind the men;
iii) lunch boxes will be on sale;
iv) because of the volatile security situation in Karachi, both date and venue for the seminar can be subject to last-minute change.
v) the following books should be read (or reread) in preparation for participation in the seminar: Jerusalem in the Qur'an; An Islamic View of Gog and Magog in the Modern World; Surah al-Kahf and the Modern World; The Gold Dinar and Silver Dirham - Islam and the Future of Money; Madina returns to Center-Stage in Ākhir al-Zamān; etc.
