Assalamualaikum. Had a morning session of tuition today. Haiz, being a tutor is not easy. We have to clear all the "shit" left by their school teachers. It is indeed hard to be a teacher but I don't understand why some teacher don't bother to check if ther students really understand whatever they have taught. When it comes to exams and some of the fail, the teacher will blam the students, "Huh you lazy bum, never study!" Maybe it is human nature to always push their faults to some other people. I am having a pretty hard time making my students to understand what ever they have went through the whole year within a very limited time as their exams are around the corner.
After the session, I went to North Bridge Road. Primarily to cut my hair and do my Friday Prayers at Sultan Mosque. It was my second time praying there. Should I grow up being a very successful and rich man, I will insyaAllah donate some money to the mosque; improving its infrastructure. It was so peaceful in Sultan Mosque. The atmosphere is just perfect for those who are seeking solace. I thought of buying kuihs at the bazaar but there were too many people. Instead, I bought Zamzam's Murtabaks and Katirahs. Also, ordered 2 books by my most favourite author, Habiburahman El-Shirazy which is Ketika Cinta Bertasbih Jilid 1 and 2. Also bought Syamil's album. He is/was a student from Madrasah Al-Junied. I feel the the need to support as I am really touched by the school's effort to give him this opportunity to utilise his talents. It was a pretty good album entitled 'Munajat'. Well done Madrasah Al-Junied and Syamil, you have a very beautiful voice, masyaAllah.
Unfortunately, I could not stay on to break fast with my dear Bahas friends as I am on standby today. In case I am activated, I have to report back to my base as soon as possible. What to do, NS = Minimum Freedom! Never mind guys, I will try my best to be free on the day you guys going Jalan Raya together, insyaAllah!
