So its been a week since the semester reopened. A little bit stressful, which I think is a norm to any dental students. And alhamdulillah I am now staying at 6th residential college which brought me to a realization - that I'm still young! No, not that I mean that I enjoy the fact that I'm young hence I can do anything that I like. No, nothing like that. But what I mean here is, I am seeing lots of young people in this hostel ( I rented a house before this, thus I didnt see that many people before) and with the blessings given by Allah, these young people can actually do a lot of things.
For instance, the nikmat of having healthy body and brain that is still active, we, the shabab, can actually make the most of this world. It would be just amazing to see we, the young people, unite together, stand in one saff during salah, take care about each other and work for this deen! And wouldnt it be nice to see these young people, rather than to be occupied only with the study, spend some time to discuss about the problem of this ummah and try to seek a solution for that?
I'm not saying that we should not take our studies seriously, but on the other hand, we MUST take it seriously if we really want to change the condition of our ummah. Studying is one thing, but when we get older and get a scroll of what we've been studying for, it will be just that.. We are young, before the brain stops functioning, before the body is having difficulties in moving, lets do something, for we dont want to be among those who regret their pass.
Rasulullah saw once said,
“Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your YOUTH before you become old; and your health, before you fall sick; and your richness, before you become poor; and your free time before you become busy; and your life, before your death.” (Narrated by Imam Ahmad])
