“AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!” Wow, I feel like the Genie from Disney’s Alladin, as he comes out of the lamp after being cooped up for Ten-Thousand Years screaming, “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!” Over the last twelve months or so I had been busy studying Arabic, Philosophy, Theology and other subjects. The studies had been really intense, with upto 7 hours of Tuition per day! Followed by a generous dose of Homework, Tests and Exams. As I was approaching the Grand Finale of my final exams last week, feeling that there was not enough pressure in my life, a week before my exams I decided to travel to Comic Con International in San Diego…

Sufi Comics started as an experiment 3 years ago on our blog, and Alhamdulliah a lot has happened during the last 3 years:
* Published a book: 40 Sufi Comics
* Comics are being translated in 4 languages… more languages coming soon
* Is used in Madrasahs around the world (including Canada, Australia, US, Africa, Pakistan, Dubai)
* Participation at Comic-Con Mumbai
* Working on Volume 2 of Sufi Comics
* Very shortly we’re releasing an app for the iPhone & iPad
With all the activity surrounding this project we felt it deserves a new home on the internet. Sufi Comic’s new official website is www.SufiComics.com ! Please subscribe to the RSS feed & Mailing List to receive the latest comics!
Thank you for all for your support and encouragement! :-)

There are three things that I can’t imagine life without.
– Coffee Breaks
– and Wikipedia.
Almost everyday I visit wikipedia to learn about some Person, Event, A piece of history, a bit of science…gosh the list goes on. When reading news online they have references to events that I have no idea about. But just with a flick of a wrist, wikipedia is open and I know exactly what they are talking about.
Wikipedia is an amazing project setup by an amazing person. Jimmy Wales is determined to keep it Advertising free. What spirit!
Read an excerpt from his passionate appeal:
Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park. It is like a temple for the mind. It is a place we can all go to think, to learn, to share our knowledge with others.
When I founded Wikipedia, I could have made it into a for-profit company with advertising banners, but I decided to do something different.
We donate regularly to wikipedia. I appeal you to do so as well. Even if it is just Rs.100. per month. You can make your donation by clicking here.

As if you haven’t had enough of us already, we’re now also offering the Arif and Ali Podcast. These podcasts are not talks given by us, but these are talks that we ourselves are looking forward to listen.
There so much to learn from the web specially from lectures, seminar etc. but don’t get chance to listen when we first see it. And when we do get the time (say when going back home from work) when don’t have access to those same lectures.
So now, whenever we come across a speech, lecture, conference that catches our fancy, we add it to the Arif and Ali Podcast. That way when we get back into our cars on our way home, we first dab into the Arif and Ali podcast and listen to the next interesting lecture from there. It’s been working really well for us so far. We have been collecting lectures in here for a while now so it has a really good collection of talks.
You can subscribe to the podcast via the RSS Feed here. If you have an ipod but never subscribed to a podcast before, you can learn how by reading this or better yet by watching this.
