I am honoured to have been the first student of the Darul Iftaa at its inception over a decade ago. Retrospectively, I realize that those were the best days of my life. My beloved Ustaadh, Mufti Ebrahim Desai Saheb, besides being a father and mentor, also possessed and still possesses the wonderful ability to foster an environment of making study a beautiful and enjoyable journey. No person could ask for a better guide, a travelling companion, a friend. May Allah bless Mufti Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhu) with long life and aafiyah.
I am most certain that the current endeavor will be fruitful and a means of tremendous benefit for the Ummah. May Allah accept and grant His choicest blessings.
