|Almost non-existent exam-fever mood - Full house yet again at C05|
20 June – The exam-fever mood among MISDEV’12 students are here again but Alhamdulillah, C05 is still packed with ISDEV members during this session of Tuesdays Teachings on 18 June 2013. With the title of ‘Nikmat Kesenangan adalah Ujian daripada Allah SWT’ (Delightful Grace is a Test from Allah SWT), the Tazkirah was delivered by Ustaz Dr. Mohd. Shukri Hanapi with a brief discussion ensuing thereafter.

In his Tazkirah, Dr. Shukri emphasised and reminded all those present not to be too complacent and joyful when bestowed with delightful grace but that one should be grateful and pray that with the gift of such grace one will not stray far from Allah SWT. This is because delightful grace is also a test from Allah SWT. In fact it is more frightening than the test of hardships. The test of hardships usually brings one closer to Allah SWT as one would incessantly supplicate and ask for Allah SWT help. However the test of delightful grace may cause one to forget and be contented thereby causing one to defy Allah SWT. The story of Qarun and his treasures was such an example as given by Dr. Shukri.

The teachings session then continued on the “Adab (Islamic Manners) in the Lavatory” by Ustaz Syakir who focused on the way that ought to be followed by Muslims in responding to one nature’s call. A lively question and answer session followed thereafter immediately.
ISDEV Director, Professor Muhammad Syukri Salleh, ISDEV Deputy Director, Dr. Zakaria Bahari, ISDEV lecturer, Dr. Fadzila Azni Ahmad and the School of Social Sciences lecturers, Dr. Asmat as well as Dr. Sharifah were among those who attended this week’s Tuesdays Teachings.
