THESE NOTES WERE TAKEN BY ME AND ANY ERRORS IN NOTE TAKING ARE MINE AND SHOULD NOT REFLECT ON THE SCHOLARS WHOSE WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE WE WERE BLESSED TO HAVE IMPARTED UPON US AT THIS GATHERING. PLACES WHERE I HAVE LOST TRACK OF OR COULD NOT UNDERSTAND THE FULL MEANING OF THE TEACHER I HAVE PLACED ..?

I POST THESE NOTES FROM THE KNOWLEDGE RETREAT 2007, FOR THE PURPOSE SPREADING AND SHARING KNOWLEDGE. IF ANYONE DERIVES BENEFIT FROM IT, ALHAMDU’ILLAH.
