how are you, brother?
The chaos in Egypt is getting from bad to worse. Ahmad's in University of Cairo and about 4-5 days ago, we totally lost contact with him since all means of communication were totally blocked. No phone calls or internet connection was allowed, but Alhamdulillah Ayah has a few friends who are diplomats. At least we get to know the general condition in Cairo before the media does, because it gets agitating having to just sit around and wait... not when your family is involved. I still can't contact Ahmad which is annoying. Alhamdulillah too we finally received a call from Ahmad 3 days ago. Words couldn't describe how relieved we were at that time, but now I'm getting all anxious again after reading reports saying prisoners broke loose and the number of casualties is increasing with time. I have a couple of cousins also studying there, one of them, Zahra, lived very near to where the rally is being held. Alhamdulillah efforts were taken by our government to relocate them to Malaysian Hall. Right now, I feel so helpless. Prayer by prayer sent wishing their wellbeing. I don't know, man, I don't even feel like blogging much.
