Experiencing blizzard in Boston 120111

>> Wednesday, January 12, 2011

It's snowing so heavily outside - I am experiencing my first blizzard here in Boston. All sessions in Harvard Macy Educators Program are cancelled today due to the heavy snow, which started to fall since 2am this morning.

The snowfall is heavy - estimated 3 inches per hour, and the wind seems to pick up now. Visibility is hardly 0.3 meter ahead. Wearing my thermal clothing now, tucked in bed.

MasyaAllah, Allah is so Great. I revised my Quranic reading just now - esp An-Nuur verse 43, where Allah SWT beautifully describes the cycle of rain & snow :
Seest thou not that Allah makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap? - then wilt thou see rain issue forth from their midst. And He sends down from the sky mountain masses (of clouds) wherein is hail: He strikes therewith whom He pleases and He turns it away from whom He pleases, the vivid flash of His lightning well-nigh blinds the sight.

I am missing everyone at home, and the warmth!



In Boston now for a short course at Harvard Medical School

>> Sunday, January 9, 2011

First and foremost, am sorry for not updating the blog. Schedule has been very tight. I am now in Boston, starting my short course in medical education today in Harvard Macy Institute.
Alhamdulillah,reached here after 30 hours of travel - a very nice Indonesian family - Akh Aris Mulyono & his family met me at the airport. I love his family almost immediately - Dewi Rusdiana (wife), Aishah, Ehsan, Sarah, Maryam & Fatimah. It was snowing when I landed. We stopped at the grand new building of the Islamic Society of Boston at the Malcolm X boulevard for our Zuhr & Asr prayers, before sending me to my hotel - Courtyard Marriot Brookline at Webster St.
Will update you all again. Pray for me.
