It is with this spirit that I will soon be joining a fellowship program at the University of Victoria (Uvic) which will pave ways for my admission to PhD in the future.

    My deepest gratitude to all those who have been inspirational during the entire journey from my school life up to this stage and during my professional life. How can I forget the continued guidance and mentoring from visionaries such as Alwaez Muhammad Aslam, Aming Beg bhai, Gul Beg bhai, Muzaffaruddin bhai, Baig Ali bhai, Farman bhai, to name a few. All these have really impacted my life in one or the other way and I dont have words to say thanks to all of them.

    Rightly said by Alwaez sahib, I dedicate this achievement to my late mother who has been an invaluable inspiration for me.

    I am also grateful to PT for providing such a platform where we can connect from around the globe and let me tell you, it becomes more important in our lives when we are out of country.
    With best regards and prayers,
    Sultan Ahmed
