The reason I really went as far as writing you was that I live in Dallas Texas, USA. Over the week-end I was in a religious gathering and I came across some one in the gathering who was visiting from the Pakistan. Names of different Islamic scholars came under the discussion, including Dr. Farhat Naseem Hashmi.
Needless to say that I have been follower of Dr. Hashmi for quite some years. When I heard some unexpected remarks made by the visitor about Dr. Hashmi, I was surprised and became curious. I wanted to learn more. So I engaged in a private discussion, on a one-on-one basis, with the visitor and asked him to tell me more about Dr. Hashmi. To make it short, he did not speak well of Dr. Hashmi & her qualifications. I thought I was being mis-led about Dr. Hashmi. Since I had totally different views of Dr. Hashmi’s qualifications, so I thought why not to go ahead and write to you & get the clarification.
Again, I live in Dallas Texas, USA. I am a male. I am not sure if you are aware or not that in Western culture, especially in USA, there is no family life. There is no family bond. There is no husband-wife respect which is taught by Islam. There is no parent-children respect & manners which is taught by Islam. Most families adopt Western culture and family institution is destroyed. THIS IS A VERY, VERY, VERY EXTREMELY SERIOUS PROBLEM IN MUSLIM HOMES IN USA.
Over a few decades, I have heard countless speakers in my life in Masajids, TVs, Radios, Newspapers & so on. I am proud of the fact that I have never, ever heard no one AND, I MEAN no one speaking the way I have have heard Dr. Farhat Naseem Hashmi speak. Every one talks about family problems & issues but, no one and I mean no one, teaches husbands/wives DOs & DON’Ts, which I feel are the ABCs to make one’s house-hold a better home & better family. Most speakers just say things that would make their audience happy. Speakers tend to tell the audience what the audience what the want to hear. As such, the speakers try to gain public popularity. When it comes to women speakers, they try to rub in Western style freedom for women. The next thing you know is that the wife goes home and starts fighting husband.
On the contrary, I have heard Dr. Farhat Naseem Hashmi countless times addressing women. I have heard her teaching women DOs & DON’Ts, how to be better wives, how to make their homes better, how to make their families better and so on. I believe this kind of teachings of Dr. Farhat Naseem Hashmi keeps families united, keeps homes from breaking apart, keeps children’s lives from being torn apart because of divorces. Because of these teachings, I am a follower of Dr. Farhat Naseem Hashmi and when ever some one in the community comes to me with family problems, I recommend them to listen to Dr. Farhat Naseem Hashmi.
I am no one compared with Dr. Hashmi but, from what I know, any one who mis-leads the others, ALLAH SWT is not pleased with him. I feel I was mis-lead by that visitor from the Pakistan about Dr. Hashmi’s qualifications & he should not have spoken ills of her. I pray for ALLAH SWT’s guidance for every one. May no one mis-lead others. At the same time, I pray for Dr. Farhat Naseem Hashmi & her family. I pray ALLAH SWT reward her & her family in this world as well as in the next, for what she does for humanity, for what she teaches women and for making house-holds better homes. May ALLAW SWT be pleased with her and her family, in this world as well as in the next.

Dear Ustadha, On this big occasion of the convocation of our batch of Taleem Al Quran, Al Khobar (Saudi Arabia) I have mixed feelings.I so much wanted to be a part of this ceremony and be able to meet my dear teacher Dr Farhat Hashmi. But Allah swt had destined for me something else.Even though I am not there to celebrate this happy occasion with my dear friends and teachers I wanted to share my thoughts.
Firstly I am thankful to Allah for giving me this privilege of being able to understand His words.Acquiring knowledge of The Holy Quran is a great blessing and also a greater responsibility. Indeed The Holy Quran is guidance for mankind.It is indeed a means of solace and cure for the hearts. The Holy Quran has Alhamdulillah completely changed my perspective, my priorities,my interests,my relationship with others and of course my relationship with My Creator.
Secondly I am very grateful to Ustadha for imparting this knowledge to us.I always had this wish to be able to understand The Words of Allah swt.Alhamdulillah Allah swt granted me this wish with Taleem Al Quran course.During the course each verse was like an awakening.I felt as if I wasn’t a true muslim before and its now that I have understood the real beauty of Islam. May Allah swt reward Ustadha for sharing her indepth knowledge and making it easy for us commoners to understand The words of Allah swt.I have benefitted tremendously from the knowledge and wisdom of The Holy Quran.
My dedicated teachers were best role models for me as how to not just acquire the knowledge but also spread it to others.They truly had the qualities of Muhsinaat. When I completed this course I was not sure what to do but Allah swt had made better plans for me Alhamdulillah. I moved to Calgary,Canada and soon met sisters who were eager to learn the book of Allah.Soon I started an online course with the intention to share this great knowledge.Alhamdulillah there are many sisters who attend and now The Holy Quran has become a part of their lives. Recently me and a dear friend of mine who is also a student of Al Huda have started online classes for kids called “Al Falah”.
Surely Allah swt gives us friends who share the same love of The Holy Quran. Alhamdulillah I find great pleasure in letting you know dear Ustadha that because of the knowledge you gave me I am able to spread it to others and be part of your mission ‘Quran For All’.
JazakAllah khair kaseeran.

Title:Kudos to Farhat Hashmi!
In a society, where difference of opinion is not at all appreciated, the so-called Islamists and the equally rigid and extreme liberals are not ready to listen to eachothers’s reasoning, and simply dream of a country where there is no challenge to their opted point of view, people like Farhat Hashmi are the only ray of hope that continues their valuable endeavors without going into unwanted controversies.
Kudos to Ms. Hashmi..Kudos to Al-Huda!!

اللہ تعالی میری پیاری استاذہ کو نظر بد سے بچائے آمین استاذہ آپ کے اندر اتنی ساری جو کوالٹیز ہیں یہ کیسے آتیں ہیں؟ ماشاء اللہ آپ کی سوچ اور آپ کا دل میں کبھی کبھی حیران رہ جاتی ہوں آپ ایک ہی وقت میں لوگوں سے معاملہ کرتے ہوئے بھی بڑی چیزوں کا خیال رکھتیں ہیں کوئی بات آپ کے منہ سے ایسی نہیں نکلتی کہ کسی کا دل ٹوٹے یا کسی ایک کی طرف داری ہو جائے
اسی طرح جب آپ جب الھدی کی کسی آنٹی یا اور سٹاف سے ملتیں ہیں تو لگتا ہے آپ کو شاید اس سے زیادہ مخبت ہےمگر جب دوسری سے بات کرتیں ہیں تو لگتا ہے اس سے زیادہ ہو گی پتا ہی نہیں چلتا آپ نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی اس سنت پر الحمد للہ زبردست عمل کرتیں ہیں
آپ دوسروں سے اتنے صاف دل سےملتیں ہیں کہ جیسے اس شخص سے کبھی کوئی غلطی ہوئی نہ ہواور اس کو آپ نے جو کام بھی دیا ہو اس پر اس نے کبھی نہ نہ کی ہواورتمام کام اچھے طریقے سےمکمل کیے ہوئے ہوں نہ کبھی آپ کا دل دکھایا ہو اور وہ ایسا شحص ہو کہ اس کی شکایت کبھی آپ کے پاس نہ آئی ہو ں
میں نے آپ کو دیکھا ہے آپ مریم کے ساتھ بھی کام ہی کی بات کرتیں ہیں غیر ضروری باتیں نہیں کرتیں پھر جب میں آپ سے ہر الٹی سیدھی بات کر لیتی ہوں تو آپ کیا سوچ کر برداشت کرتیں ہیں اور بھی بہت کچھ نوٹ کیا ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔ یہ کیسے ہوتا ہے؟

Title: Thank You Allah
I am a medical specialist. i first stumbled upon dr farhat hashmi’s lecture when i went to buy music cassette in 2005 (during my 2nd year residency in internal medicine). it was titled ‘Qiyamah’. i listened to it in my car. i liked the simple and easy to grasp language used to explain quranic verses related to the topic. it was new for me to listen to islam in that way after all those 25 years of my life. some days later again i went to same shop to buy music cd and alonwith it, i came across taleem ul quran 2002 cd.
As now i had the previous experience, i bought it with intention to listen it if i have ‘spare time’. one day i made myself sit to listen first lecture and that was the ‘sweetest and coolest’ mistake i ever did. Allah has helped me listen full course in about 4 years along with my training and routine.
Although it was not a formal course but it has changed my life. now i do the same job and follow same routine, but with a different objective. now i love quran because i can understand its message which was an alien for me before. i thank Allah for showing me the path and i pray Him to increase me in my knowledge and deeds so that He may love me.
Aand i cannot find adequate words to tell you about my feelings for what a great job dr farhat and her team is doing. i pray for your success in this life and in hereafter.

Title:Quran Became Alive !
Assalum u Alaikum,
Quran was a buried treasure discovered by Dr Farhat Hashmi.The gems were hidden, the lessons were there but we needed the key to open that, and that was done by Dr Farhat Hashmi and Al Huda Institute.
The message uplifts you, it shakes you, it trembles you. But only when you untie the knots of wonderous root words . Never before, Quran reading was so engrossing and engaging. It is a wonderful world to discover, mesmerizing voyage to experience and bountiful blessing to be thankful for.
After Allah, I’m really thankful to Dr Farhat Hashmi and others who made it possible for us to taste the real sweetness of His words.
Dr Farhat Hashmi was the first woman scholar who confidently brought the message of Islam to the ordinary women.She related the day to day life of ours to the Quraan.We never thought about Quraan that way.It was such a tremendous idea that now there are so many women doing the same thing.
She paved the path and now there are alot of people guiding so many others with the lamp of knowledge.May Allah SWT protect her and showers His mercy on our ustazah.Ameen.

Title:Alhuda Is Commendable
Dedication,devotion.determination and authenticity of Alhuda and Dr. Farhat Hashmi are highly commendable. Her critical analysis and logical convincing efforts have introduced true face of Islam to the world without disintegrating Muslim Ummah into any sect.
Just like Dr Zakir Naik and Dr Israr Ahmad she has been the ICON AND PRIDE of UMMAH. Infact ALHUDA HAS BEEN a great blessing of ALLAH for the educated youth of umah.
