Being part of this life changing experience is something that cannot be translated into words, just like the Quraan in English cannot do Justice to the true beauty of Arabic. As a student and a career woman, mom and wife it’s not always an easy to juggle. There’s been times when giving up was an option but it soon hit me that my life is incomplete without the life as a Mizan student.
I might not know all my grammar but despite that, being in that environment and the Sakeena that you find in your life is something worth striving for. Subhanalaa the journey has touched my heart, my life and changed my outlook and perspective of people and those around me. The love in you heart towards Allah swt creation increase and you have a heart filled with gratitude and gentleness. You see life and the creation of Allah swt through a different lense.
Making dua and ibaadah has more meaning, the connection to our rabb is addictive and the gems that you pick up as you work through the Quraan is worth more than anything. If you seek contentment in your life studying the Quraan is the only way to attain it. It takes dedication, preserveance and sacrifice and most importantly the battle with your lower self and shaytaan. I look forward to my weekly dose of inspiration and it gives me the boost for the week ahead, Alhamdulilah. Remember, that when you tread on the journey of seeking beneficial Islamic knowledge, shaytaan will be on the path the through you off. Don’t give in to our common enemy. May Allah swt reward the teachers of the institution and may it prosper and be there to serve the ummah until eternity. Ameen
