Day 2.. WOC2019..
I forgot how intense WOCS are!😎
Un..be..lievable buzz right now!
This buzz is that feeling of being alive! As per the ayah:
O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life….!

Today was non stop. It’s been a long time since I had so many back to back sessions!
Da’wah Training | Speech at Islamabad Club l Special edition halaqah with the boys.
The dawah Training was attended by 11 + Bros. Most are attached to campus da’wah. The main theme of the training was centred around being confident and not worrying about awkwardness.
I focussed on the concept of :
“What is the worst that will possibly happen to you?!”. When you think about this, then you realise it’s a false drama in your head.
The plan is to have a few online sessions with this team of Bros. I have high hopes for this team, watch out for exciting campus da’wah soon!
After the training, some of us headed towards the Islamabad Club. There YC held an exclusive presentation and hi tea with some influential families. I spoke alongside other brothers about what makes YC so unique & give the listeners a perspective from the West, looking into Pakistan, Islamabad.
Just as I thought my day was over and I can relax now… My beloved br Mohsin informed me that I need to speak to a bunch of guys in I-8. Yes it was a surprise but it turned out to be a positive experience. I made this discussion as informal as possible. The crowd was the exact crowd that YC always seeks to engage with and which da’wah orgs around the world should aspire to target. These guys in their 20s admittedly said they’re away from Islam but are trying to improve. There were endless existential questions and we had an immensely fruitful discussion. The main point was initiation, always bringing the answers to Tawheed, the foundations. This particular session gave me such a boost, such a high. The main host bro, kindly dropped me off to G-11 & I kept pressing upon him to keep this very important halaqah going. It is a key gathering.
That’s WOC day 2!
Day 3 is all about our travel to the other side of Pakistan…
