I think Ustadh Usama Canon is usually in Singapore in December-ish period. If I am not wrong. Because I always remember not able to go for his talks because I am having my exams.
But this year, one of alter ego snapped at me.
While I am complaining to myself why his talks AND my exams are in December, nagging to myself I missed out etc the alter ego suddenly said something like: “Isn’t the book(referring to school book/notes) in front of you knowledge?”
Why the separation of ‘islamic’ and ‘non-islamic’ knowledge when all of it is indeed knowledge? You studied ‘non-islamic’ knowledge about ‘non-islamic’ finance first before you realized something was ridiculously wrong with it and then go study the ‘islamic’ side of it? No? Pergh. 😪
A few weeks ago (months ago?), I fell asleep on the sofa while I was studying. In my sleep, I saw that I was sitting on the sofa with my uncle beside me. He then asked me “If you are studying for Allah, why the lack of enthusiasm?”
Terus macam *sila sepak diri sendiri*
