Back again here, finally. Rejuvenating everything; the blog's layout ( Kudos to the big sister, Along for making this super dull gloomy blog more lively again), the spirit,the soul and most importantly, the Iman. Few months left as a Sophomore as a medical student here in Alexandria,InshaAllah. Time flies so fast that I could not even remember what I have been doing during this year when finally I'm reaching towards its end already. That means, few more days towards final examination, and soon towards Malaysia,Biiznillah. So basically, nothing much to share here but I just want to share some of my 10 cents regarding examination. What I've been observing so far, people will always stressed out whenever it comes to examination ( since Alexandria University is always having examination compared to others here in Egypt). 

Some of my prior observations during examination week:

-Exam Fever Campaign will be launched, where majority of us will change their default picture on the social network to whatever related exam stuffs.

-We ( because it happens also to me sometimes) are so stressed out thinking about tons of modules to be digested and we tend to forget our obligations towards the One who is actually going to grant us success or failure. Or maybe, we become closer towards Him during this time only. Eg: Waking up for Tahajjud, performing the Solat Sunat, and reading the Al- Quran more frequent than other days. Why? It is so hard for us to be Istiqamah,isn't it?  This is something for us to ponder upon.

-Maybe we become closer towards the Creator but how about our obligations towards our circle of friends? Do we really care about them during these days or we just go focusing merely on our books?

'Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allah, and a covenant from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allah and destitution is put over them'....( 3:112)
Or in a simple words, I shall say Habluminallah, Habluminnas.

Quoting several friend's status on facebook:

~Sahabat-sahabat, JANGAN kita menjadi HAMBA EXAM.
~Study untuk exam atau study kerana Allah? Sebenarnya, tidak timbul pertembungan antara kedua-dua perkara tersebut kerana EXAM adalah KEPERLUAN, AKHIRAT ialah TUJUAN.

So, it is well said right? So examination is actually a part of our life. For me personally, the true examination is during the Day of Judgement; Jannah or Hell (Nauzubillah) What is far most important is, we should strive, and give our best and leave the rest up to Him.

Tawwakul is not an act of the limbs—it is an act of the heart.  And so while the limbs are striving hard, the heart is completely reliant on Allah.  This means whatever the outcome of the limbs’ striving, the heart will be completely satisfied, knowing that it is the flawless decision of Allah.
But in order to reach this level, one must hold on to hope, strive with the limbs, and let go with the heart- Yasmin Mogahed.

And that shall end my dull boring post. Till then! Let us together muhasabah ourselves towards a better Moslem inshaAllah :)
