.: Provincial lapse :.

Differential treatment.

Last month I attended a lecture at PERKIM. Alhamdulillah, the overall experience was extremely beneficial and uplifting. There were many sisters and everyone was very pleasant. As a fresh face I had a couple of regular sisters who graciously extended their friendship. Simply said, the feeling of having random people coming up to you, smile and say salam truly comforts the heart and soul.

Earlier I told a brother *the same brother as the one in this post* that I wanted to attend their classes and lectures.

Why? You already know most of these things. These classes are for beginners. You are beyond that.

I beg to differ really. In school I regarded religious subjects as just another subject. It's not like I've forgotten what I've learned, however I believe I wasn't really paying attention to any of it and I feel that I may have missed out on a handful of things. As of now, I haven't gone to any of the classes yet since my cousin wanted to join me. Will embark on the spiritual enrichment journey after Eid Insha'Allah.

Assalamualaikum aja.
It is good that you want to join the class. That bro shouldn't have said that to you. He should have encourage you to attend even though your knowledge is beyond basic. I also like meeting new people and make new friends.

Fardu Ain is the most important lesson in Islam, but most people already leave it behind simply because they think they are know it too well.. However I am feeling impressed with your courage to learn with perkim. May be one day you can become lecturer at Perkim..

Kakchik :: Wa'alaikum'as'salam kak chik. I'm sure the brother has his reasons. Since he knows the content, perhaps he's afraid I might get discouraged/bored learning "repetitive" knowledge. Anyway, he's very encouraging now after I told him my reasons. :)

Ikhwan Ng :: Wa'alaikum'as'salam. I think it's very crucial for us to get our basics right, and I can only think of PERKIM as the place to learn this knowledge. That is a thought, however I am far from possessing the necessary credentials to become one. Then again, we will never know, do we? Insha'Allah bro, Insha'Allah. :)
