Hopefully you too Sir.
Last night I was talking to my Fiancée, I told her that I got the chance to meet, the Great man in this Universe who taught me how to do my job perfectly well and diligently.
The man who accepted all my mistakes, shortcomings and failures and still devoted his time to mould me in my career.
The man who was not only a Big Boss but also a Parent and best friend on the other side.
I told her that I was struggling to save so that I can buy a smartphone, but surprisingly you gave me the one that you were using (Tecno Boom J8).
Then she was so happy and excited and she said we would give any of our children your name (Ahmed) IN SHA ALLAH.
In fact, I have nothing to pay you back, Sir.
Thank you for everything, Sir.
Actually, I cannot stop my tongue from speaking all the good things you do to me, Sir,
My DUA’A is always upon you.
May ALLAH S.W gives you the highest level in JANNAH (JANNATUL FIRDAUS)
Insha ALLAH November this year, I am going to wind up my CPA studies and become a professional Accountant IN SHA ALLAH.
ASSALAAM ALAYKUM WARAHMATUL LLAH WABARAKAAT Sir.”

“Slms, spend a lovely 3 days with a good business company, discussing Succession in Family Owned Business, very insightful discussion, good speakers, great company, great venue n food.
I would urge anybody who runs a business to attend in future, whether you are 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation, there’s something of value to take away, tops to Ahmed Seedat and his team.
There were many successful business people who employ 600 staff, who gave us valuable insight, From Pretoria to Durban to Tanzania, many stories were related, some elders are looking at passing the baton onto the next-generation, but, the big BUT, the 1st generation who were the earners, hardworking individuals who built up successful business, can they hand it to the 2nd generation, who are perceived to be the spenders, also some difficult questions about inheritance, shareholders agreements etc highlighted.
All in All, Alhamdullilah, good 3 days building new friendships n learning 👌”
