I am moving...and a job alhamdulillah

Assalaamu alaikum,

Inshallah I will be leaving for Pakistan in a couple of days. Alhamdulillah. I will be joining the computer science faculty of a university in Lahore. The university is well recognized in Pakistan for excellence in teaching and research It is a great opportunity to contribute to a muslim majority population.

This will be an end to another stage of my life. Asia -> Africa -> Asia -> America -> Asia, inshallah, with Africa leading with most time, and Asia and America tieing :) Allah knows where I would end up next.

Madinan brothers and sisters, I ask for your forgiveness if any of my words or actions in the past 2+ years have hurt or offended. I love you all for the sake of Allah. I have learned *a lot* from you all. May Allah swt reward you all.

I also ask you to please pray for me. I am kinda nervous. This will be my first serious job. The university has high expectations from me (they are setting up a new program). Pray that I can perform my duties effectively, that the job is best for my religion, livelihood, and affairs , now and in the future, in the this world and the next. Please pray for my health also.

Jazakallahu khayran.

Wasalaam.

P.S. I haven't posted for several weeks. Once things get settled I will contribute more inshallah. I will be checking the board frequently though.

wa alaykum as salaam wa rahmatAllah,

Asim bro, thinking back, I don't think I've *ever* heard you say something impolite, improper, or insensitive to a person's feelings on the board.  Your posts have always been balanced and well thought out, and have been of a lot of benefit to me and many others, wa jazak Allahu khayran.  I'm happy to hear that you're not leaving the Madina, but just making an address change :)

may Allah bless you in this and all steps in your journey through life, make easy for you the path to khayr, and grant you the best in health, livelihood and happiness. :)

Asalaamu aleikoum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh

Brother, may Allah bless your new venture.  We shall, as the brothers and sisters have said, miss your contributions to the board (always polite and educational, Masha Allah).

I wish you all the very best, Insha Allah.

By the way, what's with you and the places that begin and end in "a"?   Where did you live in the States?  Alabama?  Atlanta? ;)

Prohpet Muhammad [saw] said "Much silence and a good disposition, there are no two things better than these." Bukari

Makes me think of Asim.
May Allah swt guide you on your journey.

brother asim,

this sounds like a wondeful opportunity for you!  i wish you well, and am sure it will work out for the best.

you have always been very kind and helpful to me here - not to forget quite patient - no matter how simple (i.e., dumb) the questions were i asked!  i believe these are essential qualities for one who will be teaching, and i think your students will find you to be as kind and helpful as i have.

come back (to the madina!) soon.

Assalaamu alaikum,

Jazakumullahu khayran for  the duas. Alhamdulillah I arrived safely and have joined LUMS. Things have been busy but fruitful  so far. I am loving the muslim majority  academic environment as opposed to the single-muslim-guy-in-the-dept experience at OSU. Jumuah today was in heavy  monsoon rain, subhanallah! I am now all wet sitting in my office :)

I really can't leave the board, it has become such a huge part of my life. I get my motivational jolts from here. And I look forward to reading the views of the brothers and sisters in whose words I  see my thoughts reflected.

Inshallah I will contribute as much as the situation allows me. Please  do keep me in your duas. All  of you are in my duas. May Allah give us the light that guides us on the straight path. ameen.

wasalaam.

Alhumdullilah you made it safely, I thought LUMS was only a business school, isn't an engineer like youself going to be a little lost there? ???

Assalaamu alaikum,

I am in the computer  scciene department. LUMS has a young cocmputer science program. They offer BS, MS and just recently PhD in computer science. In addition to  BBA and MBA (their oldest programs) they now also have undergrad programs in finance, economics, and mathematics.

None of the above :) But I hope the students don't give *me* the stare, hehe.

Bismillah wa salatuhu wa salam ala'a Rasul Karim,
Salam alaykum bro'

I hope and pray that this will be your Fath and an openning for many more doors of goodness and khayr, insh'Allah. May He(Swt) bless your path with ease and Taufiq, protect you from all evil and ever increase you in His (swt) good pleasure. May you become the helping hand for some, the shoulder for others. The inspiration for the youngsters and the recipient of wisdom for the olders, May He (swt) bless you from His (swt) Bounties in all that is khayr for you in this dunya and above all for your akhera. Amin
