It's fair to say that some long overdue blog posts are in order!
After dusting off the cobwebs and eagerly scribbling away at the drawing board, we have come up with a jam packed schedule for you this semester! From interviews and polls to reminders and moving stories, you can expect nothing but exciting reads to brighten up your week!
And just to get back into the swing of things, here's a brilliant reminder that was submitted which is the perfect read for the start of this new semester!
Starting a new semester is a chance to turn over a new leaf.
It's a chance to show that you are learning from your mistakes, a chance to build on current abilities and to continue improving.
And a chance to think positively about your goal.
A light of hope is opened up.
Allah (swt) always gives us chances. Each chance is a blessing.
In fact, every day is another chance to keep improving and proving to Allah (swt) how grateful we are for yet another chance, another day, another semester.
So let's use the past as a lesson and the future as an opportunity and continue striving through life's journey with the thought in mind that every breath we take is a gift and a reason to keep striving in the way of Allah (swt).
As university students who are still young and active, we have a responsibility as prescribed by the Prophet (pbuh) who said:
“Take benefit of five before five:
your youth before your old age,
your health before your sickness,
your wealth before your poverty,
your free-time before your preoccupation,
and your life before your death." (Hakim).
