Once upon a Guest- by Kiran Salim (QI-2016)


The long delayed soul search was ever more induced by the guest speaker brother Ahmed Saleem yesterday. Clouded by the routine and monotony , a fresh perspective was definitely in order. 

For me It was one of those times when in a chandelier, among the million shining crystals a particular one catches your eye.

And for me that little crystal was the use of Arabic language. How freely wisdom flows in this magnificent language. The narrations heard many a times made a new impact on my heart. والله ما يكذب محمداأبدا 

A simple statement but the persona of prophet (saw) was seen in a different light altogether. Wow!

Only by the use of arabic the whole narration became more alive and relevant. It made me wonder how would it be to understand seerah in Arabic.And a little ‘learn Arabic’ note was added to my to-do list.

 

Furthermore what left me in awe was the balance of Prophet(saw)’s immense wisdom and his simplicity of actions. No high flying words, no overly adorned speech, just the simplicity of actions- pure and clear like the water that one can see through. Refreshing in its every sense.

 

How the existence of a bitter critic like Abu Jahel did not even make him flinch. He was focussed and the petty tactics of Abu Jahel were over looked by the enormity of Prophet’s mission. It made me think that if we take only this ONE sunnah of the Prophet (saw) our social problems will nearly be over. Organizations/ families will work more effectively, relations will not be broken and the work of Allah will not be neglected by ‘he did,she did’.

 

Overall the lecture was refreshing and the speaker seem to spoke from birds’ eye view. For some students it was too big to grasp but for most it was thought provoking and gave rise to questions like ‘Where am I heading?’ ‘What should be my next big move?’ If truth be told we women generally remain arrested in the short term trouble shootings, and once in a while such lectures are required to bring the larger mission in perspective. 

 

Special thanks to Sister Sabeen for making it possible and I hope that we get more of such enlightening events on and off
