Assalam-o-Alaikum Everyone -
many times, people do not know how they are impacting others all around the world. In late 90's many of the pakistani digests saw an uprise of practical religious practice in urdu magazines. while our TV became more and more liberal, the important family magazines saw more and more of religion in writings. Ms Ahmed (spelled as Umera Ahmed) are one of those very blessed writers whose writing have same impact on men and women. she doesn't preach but every single she has written since 1997 (except Amarbail) has Allah and Islam in it such a way that at least I can say, along with the help of few others in my life (my Quran teacher, a local arab scholar in MN, dr Hatem al Haj and some other muslim brothers and sisters) Ms Ahmed has helped me finding the purpose of life.
I have hardly missed any of her writings but I will start with the one which gave me such a change in late 1998. The name of this writing is "Shehr-e-zaat" and although few other writings (such as darbaar-e-dil and meri zaat zarra-e-benishaan) had very strong impact on me, this remains the best to date. may Allah reward Ms Ahmed a lot in this world and on day of judgement this all shows in her sadaqah Jaariyah!
It is not going to be ez to post all of her writings. i have almost all of them. I will try my best especially for muslim sisters who can read urdu and can benefit from it. I hope that I am not violating any copyrights but I do feel that the benefit of these writings is huge for muslims and if we could translate them someday to english and other language, that would be awesome. some of her writings are coming on media but I am not sure how well they are being portrayed. her writing are truly very special human effort. for me after Hadith and Allama Iqbal's work , this has been most moving.
