A new chapter

Assalam alaikoum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh,

And so it begins..a new chapter of my life about to be written.

Honestly, just like when I was about to leave for Australia 5 years ago, I’m anxious at the thought of adapting and living in a new country. The environment and (slightly) different culture is always daunting at first but I’m hoping to accustom quickly to the new surrounding insha’Allah. I secretly wished that it’s Australia I’m leaving for 😦

If anyone’s wondering hehe, I’m actually moving across the border for my Masters which is a couple of hours drive to the main city. Insha’Allah I’ll be there for two years.

If there’s one thing I’m looking forward to is the Islamic environment that the University offers, according to my cousin and friends who are studying there. The University holds many Islamic lectures by various intellectuals from local and overseas. Plus, I heard about the strict dress code that is enforced upon the students – both Muslims and non-Muslims. Perhaps even ikhtilat is not allowed? Masha’Allah, looking forward to the much needed eemaan rush there! πŸ™‚

Also, in less than 2 weeks there will be an Al Maghrib seminar by Sh Riad which I signed up for! πŸ˜€

Duas please! πŸ™‚

p/s/ I’ll do some ‘clean up’ of this blog once I’ve settled down insha’Allah πŸ™‚

    • Wa alaik salam wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh student of knowledge,

      sorry for the late reply! I just logged in :/

      Al-Hamdulillah for the experience! And thank you for your kind comment but All Praises be to Him only.

      I’m currently studying Islamic Banking & Finance.. and no, my background has been secular until lately. Not sure if Islamic banking is considered a ‘religious study’ to begin with…
