From the Amir al-Muminin Abu Hafs 'Umar ibn al-Khattab, radiya'llahu 'anhu, that he said,
"I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, saying,
'Actions are only by intentions, and every man has only that which he intended. Whoever's emigration is for Allah and His Messenger then his emigration is for Allah and His Messenger. Whoever's emigration is for some worldly gain which he can acquire or a woman he will marry then his emigration is for that for which he emigrated'."

This hadith is the first hadith compiled in the forty hadith by Imam an-Nawawi. And I'm sure that everyone of us heard and knew about the main message if this hadith. It's all about INTENTION.

Last weekend (29-31 October 2010), I went to Air Tenang Resort, Janda Baik as a lecturer accompanying IIC students who will graduate from the college. This is a compulsory programme for graduating students after studying around 3 years in IIC. Of course this is my first programme within months working here.

So, what is the connection between the hadith mentioned above and my story in Janda Baik? It will be like this.. Most of the students have different kinds of feeling while attending this programme. They have kind of perceptions that this is Ibadah Camp which relates to religious aspects only. Some of them might willingly come and some of them were not. They just want to pass their attendance, and then graduate from the college. So, all of them have different intentions, targets and aims. It's not only to students, but to lecturer as well..hmm

I don't want to tell the whole activities for 3 days and 2 nights here, but it was a good programme. They have to understand that Ibadah is not only praying and fasting. All of our actions can be considered as Ibadah if the intention is for the sake of Allah only. So, they have to purify their intentions and make all of their doings in this world as Ibadah, so InsyaAllah Allah will give the just rewards for them. If I can imagine that I am a student who participate in this programme, InsyaAllah it will be very worth and memorable after graduation, but I attended as a lecturer and facilitator, so of course, there were a lots of responsibilities..

Anyway, all the best to all graduating students. Set a good intention and best target for your future. May Allah show all of you the clear and great future of life, and make everything easier for all of you. Grab any opportunities to seek knowledge and remember that there is no ending in the process of learning..

Ma'attaufiq wannajah.. ^_^

**Good BYE October, Welcome November.. Lots of things to do in November. Allahu Yusahhil~
