Peace, one and all…
I’ve got a few minutes to wait before my train is due, so I thought I’d spend the time writing a quick post (don’t say I don’t give you all anything)! Well…I’ll be off to London tomorrow, insha Allah, for the weekend. It’s time for our regular (6-weekly or so) visit to the in-laws. They live in the small town of St. Albans, which is on the outskirts of the ever-expanding metropolis that is 21st century London. It’s a nice town, I suppose, but being from the heart of the inner city (is that what Americans call downtown?) it feels very different from what I’m used to.
I’ll be visiting the excellent library of the School of Oriental & African Studies in central London. I have to say that it’s one of my favourite places in the whole, wide world! Insha Allah, I’ll be bringing back a few new books. Allah, Allah!!! In particular, I’m hoping to locate a few new items for my studies.
I’m currently studying Arabic with one of my colleagues and I seem to be learning lots of really useful small things every time we meet! Al hamdu lillah. It’s so good to be able to read a passage from the Quran in Arabic and understand it! Allah, Allah!!!
Ya Rabb! Al hamdu lillahi `ala kulli hal…
