4 Minutes of Fame

Asalamu Alaykom,

Here is the edited video from Mustafa Hosny's program Tarek Allah.  This jumps right to my interview and lasts for about four minutes.

Masha'Allah sister this is so inspiring, its so true that the Quraan has all the answers, I love the way you explain it. May Allah continue to shower his favours upon you, Inshaa-Allah!

One more thing- The music is so peaceful and the host seems so sincere and warm.

MashAllah that was so lovely! It was truly touching. I especially loved the part when you said that Allah was always with you, and that Allah was not away from you but that you were away from Allah.

Asalamu Alaykom Zarina,

Thanks for watching and commenting :)

I'm glad that you got one of the most important messages I wanted to share. When I watched the video, I felt that using the photographs just when I was talking about Quran was distracting. Yet, you heard that part so that's great.

Ameen to your du'a.

Light and Love!

Asalamu Alaykom EgyptChick,

You can always leave, "one more thing". I agree with you about the host, Mustafa Hosny. There isn't any smarm factor. He isn't shouting and ranting about HARAM! HARAM! He is very approachable on the show...not that I ever met him in person.

I'm not sure what to think about the music. I don't think it's awful but I wonder if it's necessary. Being an Islamic show, it could have maybe done without music. However, if you liked it then maybe it serves a purpose.

Light and Love!

Asalamu Alaykom UmmTimo,

Alhumdulillah that it reached you. You definately picked up on the central message to what I said. Alhumdulillah that it was edited in and not out.

When you give an interview, you speak for 30 minutes but are only given four. I really understand how important it is to give sound bytes yet it's HARD to give sound bytes about your faith. I'd rather have my own show where we can develop thoughts over longer periods of time. Ahhhh coulda, woulda, shoulda...

Alhumdulillah :)

Love and Light!
