Eid e Qurban; The Sunnah of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S.)... But how can we follow it correctly?

We know Allah loves us and wants us to give something in His way. But we are neither Prophet Ibrahim (A.S. ) nor are we Prophet Ismail ( A.S.) who motivated his father and was ready to embrace death.

 So what does Allah want from us; meat ,money? Is the money or meat we give away equal to sacrificing our son? He wants us to sacrifice our beloved thing just as a son is to his father.

Their meat will not reach Allah , nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good.
Al-Hajj, Ayat-37
He wants us to sacrifice our EGO which is one of the most cherished feelings we as humans have.

He wants us to break the walls of pride and superiority creating hindrance between the rich and the poor. We cannot just satisfy our conscience by giving them our left overs and "utran" and keeping them at an arm's length.

           And when it is said to them: "Spend of that with which Allah has provided you," those who disbelieve say to those who believe: "Shall we feed those whom, if Allah willed, He (Himself) would have fed? You are only in a plain error."
Yaseen ayat 47

He wants us to overcome our laziness and self-centeredness whenever we prefer it over working for people's cause.

And this religious event is not about just one day: it's the day of reviving the real spirit of this Eid and making plans of working on this line for the whole year. May Allah enable us all to follow the footsteps of Prophet Ibrahim ( A.S.) in the real sense (Aameen)

P.S. Eid Mubarak to everyone

1st Year IMPORTANT TOPICS (Anatomy)

By Farkhanda QaiserOkay finally here it is. The all-important guide for the 1st year students. I’ve compiled all the prof and sendup questions of last year as well as the remnants of class tests that I had.But before you go on to read them, keep in mind the following very tested tidbits:For profs, NEVER leave any topic untouched and unread. Go through all topics so that in viva, you have atleast some idea about what the examiner is asking.NEVER lose your sendup question paper because there are high chances that some of the questions will be repeated in profs as you can see in the following example of anatomy question paper and same goes for the MCQs. Most of them are repeated. So here’s what we had done, in our facebook class group, we had made a discussion topic, and everyone told the MCQs of sendups and discussed them. Well, you may think us nerds or whatever but trust me that discussion proved very fruitful for all those who participated in it.I think enough has bin said about orga…

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)
Salam everyone, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. I am going to write a detailed composition regarding preparation for USMLE Step 1. I am a final year student at King Edward Medical University and I took my exam on June 10th. Final year is the year before internship/ house job in Pakistan. I just got my scores: 99/266

Let me introduce some myths surrounding USMLE Step 1 which are especially prevalent within Pakistan; I am not too sure about India because I heard their students typically appear in their final years.

 Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …
