We (IIUM students)are about to bump the semester break in 2 days.(sem break + chinese new year).I called my ummi the other day and she asked me whether I'm coming home or not.
My abah and sister were also asking the same question.
I admit that I haven't return to my hometown for quite sometimes.I can't remember when was the last time I went back. (Raya Aidilfitri kot as I was celebrating Eidul Adha here in the University.)
Seems like whether it's a break or not,my life is about the same.Not getting enough 'break' at all.(After all,a Muslim never have a specific time for 'break' right?Tanggungjawab lagi banyak dari masa yang ada.-IHAB)
So, till now I haven't decided whether to go or not to go back home.It's not the matter of I'm not missing my family or what,but it's all about the due dates.They keep on chasing me every seconds.Tak terkejar yob!!
The Prophet once said:
"Whenever a person went out for seeking knowledge,he is on the path of 'fisabilillah' until he went back." (Au kama qal)
"Man kharaja fi tolibil 'ilm, fahua fisabilillah hatta yarji'."
