I must be on a roll, three posts in almost as many days!
Over the last two weeks I have given two radio interviews. First there was Saeed Mahmood of Radio Salaam in Manchester who interviewed me and then a few days ago Shafiq Morton from Voice of the Cape Radio in South Africa. The Radio Salaam interview will be broadcast on Friday 14th May at 8.00pm (BST) can be heard on their web broadcast site. Voice of the Cape don’t broadcast on the internet and the interview went out the day after it was done. I am not very good at these things and as soon as they start I am hoping that they finish quickly. Alhamdulillah they went well, I usually freeze when a microphone is thrust in my direction! Want to make a quick plug for Jamil Chisti and Rumi Bookstore in Manchester, the best Islamic book store in Manchester, thanks for lunch after the interview Jamil!
Over the last 6 or 7 months there has been a huge interest in masud.co.uk and I am not sure why. It could be down to a few things, such as the various weblogs that I am hosting, the Masud Forums, the items I am selling and the frequent minor updates that I make to my main page. There is also a lot of media interest too and from non-Muslims and have had phone calls from some media organisations.
Have you seen the latest article on the site? “The Condemnation of Status and Fame” by Imam al-Ghazali from the Ihya? Food for thought there for everyone I think.
