What’s the feedback from previous attendees?
“Over many years I gradually lost the special connection I once had with the Quran. Today, I felt like I was reminded of what I once used to do, which is ‘reflect’ and be in complete awe of what I used to read. After today’s session, I feel that I found a lost gem! I need to take it, and reflect in sha’ Allah. JAK, sister, you have been the answer to my prayers, SubhanAllah!” .
“Very enjoyable and productive session. What I enjoyed the most about doing these exercises in a group was listening to everyone else’s reflections. It’s amazing how much you can derive from just an ayah…and hence our different thought processes and what we come up with. It was a very interactive session which I found beneficial for this topic.”

Can I share what I learn with others?
You’re more than welcome, (I encourage you actually) to tell other sisters about what we did, the exercises and your personal take on the experience; short of giving out the material itself. My humble request that the materials not be shared with non-attendees, because there are parts of the workbook, for example, like the misconceptions section, that are ambiguous. So a non-attendee might misunderstand the material, and this misinformation can cause a great deal of confusion.
Inshallah I’m working on a straightforward eBook with all of the content, in a basic format for people to download from my website.
