Secangkir kopi di pagi hari sambil ditemani si Anak Daro yang lembut dan enak
Semoga ia memberi semangat untuk terus melaksanakan tugas dengan penuh keikhlasan 😉

This is one of the series of posts where we share some powerful reflections from our last retreat so people who didn't attend can also benefit Insha Allah and our beloved friends who did can reminisce :) - we had our first Afterglow Light the Soul Retreat from June 8 to 10, 2018 in Karachi, you can find out more about this by checking our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts by the handle @afterglowglobal.
Other than the wealth of knowledge each of our speakers shared with all of us at the retreat, we learnt a lot from their personalities too. These two gentlemen Abdur Rahman Syed and Shahbaz Mirza were a true personification of humility. Needless to say, their credentials can put anyone of us in awe but there was nothing about their demeanor, personality or speech that conveyed this level they had attained.
The time we met Abdur Rahman Syed, we couldn't even comprehend what high level of a professional he was simply due to the biases and perceptions we all have by virtue of the environment we have been brought up in. We talked and coordinated like we would with anyone and were left in awe when we realised how learned he was. We are unable to even explain the feeling to the fullest. Same goes for Shahbaz Mirza, the level of humility in speech and approachability was unmatched - which we never see when someone has gained such high levels of knowledge, success and education!
