It has been a while since my last post.I didn't have a proper time to update my blog lately.Well,hopefully this 10 minutes entry will benefits all of us,Insya Allah.
I'm not so 'outspoken'or dare to express my feelings to people except while supplicating and talking to my beloved Ummi.Making worst,if I need to express it in English.(It shows how bad my English is)
Yesterday,while in xx class I couldn't sit calmly as I was very late in performing my 'Asr prayer.The class should end up at 6.30pm but the lecturer insisted to continue his lecture up to 6.45pm.Maghrib prayer is just to come then.
In fact,that particular lecturer gave us questions to be answered in class while he went outside the class to perform the 'Asr prayer.It wasn't fair.!
The moment he came in,he started to give 'Tazkirah' which turn out to be 'bullshit'!(Sorry for using this term.)
I couldn't recall his exact words,but the gist is more or less like this;
"If people didn't perform the solah,it is not the society problem,it is the individual problem,hence you can't blame the society for any reason"
Suddenly and spontaneously I shouted 'NO!!' as reflecting to disagreement of his statement.I even didn't realized how my voice came out to said that.
And of course,few eyeballs were concentrating on me.It was like 'eh Nabil ke tu?biar betul.'
But I just pretending as 'it wasn't me' by looking elsewhere i.e ceiling etc.Of course I have my justifications to argue with my lecturer,but Alhamdulillah,Allah has granted me with rational and wisdom not to argue so and so at that time.
It isn't about you dare or not to argue,but it is about how you argue with people,and it is not appropriate to slam the PhD holder infront of the class.
Respecting others,or like Stephen Covey said,seek understand,then to be understood is the key.I might win the argument,but I will lose his heart forever and ever.I would say,this is not a Dai'e characteristic.
As a Dai'e,our aim is to win the heart of our Mad'u.Many people have the courage to argue and dare to slam people,but few people have the ability to stay calm,and put his wisdom ahead rather than his emotion.
“Invite (all) to the way of Thy Lord with wisdom and preaching; and argue with them In ways that are best and Most gracious: for Thy knoweth best, who have strayed from His path, and who receive guidance.” (An-Nahl:125)
Wallhu'alam.May Allah gives us the strength to spread Islam and Istiqamah on this path.
1.PhD might be translated also as 'Pandai habih dah.-Thus,their ego are quite high.Must have skills to tackle them.
2.There was a survey made to find the most trust people to be trusted in the society,and guess what,Professor was at the 1st rank.Civil society even didn't put their trust on Doctor.Worst were the politician and Policemen.
3.Wisdom alone isn't very helpful either.We need wisdom and courage,and currently,I'm not courage enough to pop out my words.
