TDC, ‘Eid and everything around it!

Bismillahir Rahmaan arRaheem
asSalaam ‘alaykum wa Rahmatuallaah

Wow, what a long and drawn out TDC (Texas Da’wah Convention) it has been and what a long week it has been with ‘Eid and everything. SubhanAllaah. So ‘Eid Mubarak to everyone. Well anyway, I think I am back to blogging now and perhaps some of the events of this crazy weekend might find their way onto this blog. TDC was a blast, met some of the greatest brothers ever from all across the nation. Not to mention one of the best lectures at TDC was probably the most controversial, so controversial it wont even be produced to be sold in the market, not only that no one has even recieved copy of it, not even the organizers of TDC, and it was given by none other than our brother – Abdul Rahman Chao, ask him what it was about through his blog or sign up at Crescent Youth Forums to discuss. Watching Shakh Hasan Khalil play table tennis was a sight, he is really really good! Met loads of people from multiple forums (specially alMaghrib), bloggers in the Islamoblogsphere, and people I just talked to over the phone or heard of. The best time we had was goign out to Katz’s (kosher food place) with liek 30 brothers was probably the best time I had at the conference. Not to mention staying up late till liek 3AM in the morning witht he brothers chilling, and managing to wake up for Fajr and staying up the entire day!! YES!!! Thats hwo exciting TDC is!!! It is worth sacrificing your sleep and getting only 16 hours of sleep in a periods of 4-5 days. You can’t even go to sleep int he lectures because they are really good, and once you leave them you cant even think about going to your hotel to sleep because you might miss something exciting. Followed by listening to the same jumu’ah khutbah two weeks in a row by Yasir Qadhi and then not to mention the ‘Eid khutbah by Yasir Qadhi as well, yes 3 khutbahs and 4 talks by Yasir Qadhi in a period of 10 days. Everything from slaughtering goats and skinning them, meeting some of the MSA brothers again, and also some of the UH-MSA alumni to pulling pranks on cousins and getting talked into doing some of the stupidest things ever, watching one of our popular da’ees in the West run after goats trying to get it ready for Udhiyya to distributing Qurbani meat to the Somali Refugee Camp in Houston. This has got to be one of my best weeks ever, and the good thing is, its not yet over, alhamdulillaah. I will start updating soon insha’Allah. But until then make du’aa for the muslimeen.

    LOL, so that’s it, they’re not going to sell that controversial cd?
    I want a copy! The whole point was to sell it so that people get the message

    so what are you trying to say akhi? Did you like TDC or what?!?!?

    I mean, if you really had a good time…then you would have written something like….

    “I really, really, really, really, really, Really, REally, REAlly, REALly, REALLy, REALLY, REEEEEEAALLY, REAAAAAAAALLLLLY, REEEAALLLLLY,
    R.E.A.L.L.Y enjoyed TDC a lot”!

    …and that is how you should have expressed yourself akhi! :)
