woohoo! Alhamdullillah, i finished my last paper today! wasn’t happy about it but still, i’ve finished! gosh, it’s unbelievable how fast the time pass. it’s the end of the semester already!
i have to be honest. though, adelaide wasn’t my first university choice, coming here was the very thing that i think i was blessed with. i mean, apart from Islam, family and good health and everything….. eh, you know what i mean.
it’s only been 4 months since i came, but i have learn loads, be it academics or socials. but i think, the most significant thing that i learn would much lean towards my social life.
i learn that, your friend will
not always be your friend forever. i mean, sure, friend stays, but i think i’ve lost one of mine this semester. rest assured that the friendship is still intact except that it is now not the same like before.
and i too learn that karma really exist. okay, scratch that. not karma. just, good people DO get their rewards. sure, pain and obstacles came along the way but the end result is purely satisfying.
good friends don’t come easy too. being in adelaide makes me think that, should i not be surrounded by these people, i don’t know what i would’ve become now. and somehow i think i’m getting better by day… with the occasional lazing around of course. eh, not occasional, everytime.
but being around the people that i’m surrounded with, i think i’m a better person than i was before. i learn more about Islam than i could’ve ever learn during my high school years put together. sure, we get As in PI and everything, but we never really go all out in understanding this pure, beautiful religion.
suddenly it hit me, i think i was MEANT to be here. it’s like i’ve been lead to lead a life that will someday make me achieve our ultimate goal; the after life. =). and to think of how i’ve been dragged into this community (yes, dragged) i think i am reallyyy grateful that i was.
i mean, i remember when Kak Izzati asked me to go to the Autumn Gath this year, i almost did not go. being someone’s only companion i only go to places if she goes. but then, as i have said before, something dragged me to go. and from that day onwards everything changed for the better. i started attending usrahs, liqas and i started meeting new people. i start understanding the meaning behind every line that we recites everyDAY. and it amazes me that EVERY single thing that we do, from fasting, solat, hajj are all in THERE. i mean, i know it’s IN there, but when you finally understand what you were reading it makes much more sense, like, the feeling after you discover a gold mine. like, “look2! it’s really there!” sorta thing.
and i prayed that the light that has been shone on me will keep shining brighter with each passing day. Ameen. Salam. =)
