Salamun 'alaykum,

A very insightful, thought-provoking discussion. Also bothering. Perhaps for the right reasons yet I am going to listen to it again to find benefit. I look forward to more, and hope to be included in any educational activities that are of any benefit in Nottingham. jazakAllah khayr, 'Abdur Rasheed.
