Finally finished it. Very rewarding book examining one of the weirdest, most ubiquitous American things: television, and more specifically sitcoms. What we laugh at, what we spend hours watching, quietly begins to modify how we view the world—real life starts to seem like it shoulda been on TV, and we talk about our friends on Friends like they were really our friends. Well written, and very insightful. But wait, I can’t read! *insert laugh track*
"Terrible Phone Camera Pictures From ICNA Convention 2014"
Alhamdulillah I had a lot of fun, and I benefited immensely from the message of our teachers and the direct access to these scholars. May Allah bless everyone involved for their efforts and may He magnify and increase all the good that came from this weekend. And may all of us who attended understand that this is now a fresh start, and the real work is before us, not behind us. As Altaf Hussain stated, “Conventions aren’t vaccinations,” the cure is in what you do afterward with consistency. Bismillah.
