Fi Amanillah (&your guide to darul uloom guys&girls)


When this blog began, I  had a hundred thoughts&experiences to share. However something happened,Ramadhan.

It made me introspect and carrying on with this blog is not feasible for certain reasons. 

However, the few things I did want to share,are under. They also are completely applicable to me. Hope I can remember all,doubt it.


a) They stand out because of the edge their ilm(knowledge) gives them.

b)However when we don’t practice on the ilm, it can have a very adverse effect that will impact on us even more than on someone who has limited ilm.

c)Do not get charmed by the lines a guy still studying gives you. (esp foreigners) that “hot” accent won’t sound so charming when he informs you he HAS to marry someone from his culture/family/or his mother might get suicidal. Girl, he is not going to marry you,period.

d) The girl who can rattle off her politics and arabic with equal ease, is  appealing. However when on your engagement/wedding/her friends walima, she rocks up with a camel hump or whips off her hanayen to expose her hair… you’re asking for trouble.

e) If you don’t have adab (respect and etiquette) for your teachers,kitaabs& colleagues while in Madressa, your stinky reputation will stay with you.

f) When we enter the Madressa, we have admitted ourselves into a washing machine to clean up our act internally and externally. We can only benefit if we don’t resist.

g) Very rarely does someone who didn’t work on their spiritual condition and keep the company of the pious will do so after leaving Madressa. This is an epic disaster. Knowledge of deen cannot be learnt in isolation, it’s not clinical like secular knowledge.

h) Conducting a love affair with anyone other than ALLAH TA’AALA is a huge barrier to learning and absorbing and figuring out our purpose in life. We dont need this. May Allah protect our hearts in HIS Merciful Hands

i) Watching movies and porn &listening to music (and youtubing unnecessary clips) ,blocks the nur(light) of the ilm filtering into the heart and mind. Doesn’t matter if our marks are sky high. It distances us from our Allah. And we will see the proof when we feel disinclined from deeni talks/people&activities.

j) Studying&Teaching Deen, the work of Tabligh, the time with the mashaaikh of the Khanqahs and humanitarian work are 4 wheels of a moving car. A car missing one wheel cannot go anywhere. IF we cannot be a part of a certain work, then don’t do yourself a disservice and pick on it. Zip our mouths. 

k) We should try and distance ourselves from the love of clothes,trends,cars & gadgets. What is the point of all our years in Madressa otherwise? What will set us apart? 

l) Please work on spelling and diction, it shouldn’t be that because we’re in Madressa we can butcher the  language! Remember Nabi SAW and Sahaba RA spoke eloquently.

m) become a master of our studies. When you enjoy it,it will be fun. Simple.

n) Overlook the faults of our teachers and the Ulama. Take their advice and duas.

o)Follow the sunnah and help the family, thats when they won’t say Alimas and Alims aren’t good people. Do it because it is a sunnah of Nabi SAW,whose example is the formula for success

p) Don’t be obsessed by stats and likes and dont be a wanna-be social media star. Facebook,Twitter etc is not for the people of Ilm

q) Don’t let anyone with a secular degree ever make you feel like a second class citizen and don’t allow yourself to feel that way. You’re a star. Allah has truly blessed you, now let’s that that ilm and use it to make a change.

r) don’t become an Alim known to debate and argue.

s) No matter how many years since we left Madressa, we should revise regularly and keep reading stories of the pious to motivate and inspire us.
