Excellencia: The Pursuit

Excellencia: The Pursuit
is a Pre-University Seminar for Muslim Youth which aims to highlight
the importance of the pursuit of excellence amongst Muslim students
The Organising Committee for would like to extend its invitation to all students in JC, Poly and Madrasahs for the event, which will be held from 15 Dec 08 (Mon) to 18 Dec 2008 (Thu) @ Yusof Ishak House, National University of Singapore (NUS).

The seminar serves as an intellectual platform for Muslim students to enliven an enriching experience about excellence and its significance in their lives. Participants will go through a 4 day 3 night residential programme that will enrich them intellectually, physically and spiritually. It is hoped that this seminar will give students the drive to pursue excellence in all that they do, and motivate them to carry on forth from the seminar to attain excellence in life.

Through the avenues of forums, an outdoor experiential learning programme, as well as an outdoor project, participants will inculcate the attitude of perceiving excellence in every aspect of their lives. Participants will play a crucial and integral role in this process as they engage in these activities. Their findings will ultimately be the source of knowledge that will hopefully propel them further in pursuing excellence.

Hadith 18...as shared...

Assalammualaikum Dunia...
Peace World...

Here is the hadith I shared during the Panel Discussion at the BRMY camp.

Abu Dhar Jundub bin Junadah and Abu Abdul Rahman Mu’adh bin Jabal, radiyallahu anhuma, reported that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, said:
“Fear Allah wherever you may be; follow up an evil deed with a good one which will wipe (the former) out, and behave good-naturedly towards people.”
[Al-Tirmidhi relates it, saying: It is a good (hasan) Tradition. In some copies he says: It is a good and genuine (hasan and sahih) Hadith.]

My point to share is simple.
There is much we have done, doing or will do which fall under the category of an 'evil' deed.
However, that should not stop us from following up with a good deed.

So, keep doing good, even when you are in the pits of 'evil'.

Allah is Most Merciful, Most Forgiving.
Never despair His Mercy.
He loves us...always.

regards,
~dew~

Project Zip! Video (shown during BRMY Camp @NACLI)

video

In aid of the victims of the Tsunami which struck the Indian Ocean on December 2004, FMSA sought collaboration with Saff-PERDAUS and PERGAS to undertake Project Zip!. The project made an appeal to Singaporeans to donate Ziploc bags containing several items of basic necessities and drop them at collection centres. The Ziploc bags were then directed to Aceh Indonesia.

The project was mainly manned by the youth and student community (Muslims and non-Muslims). Known as 'Youth for Humanity', these youths managed to pack some 11 000 ziplog bags containing items such as mineral water, cereals, biscuits, towels and some medication. Boxes of clothings and other aid items were also collected.

say yes to peace.

Hamza Yusuf spoke to me:
“If you are not upset about the way the world is going, you are asleep or spiritually dead. People need to get on board and start showing solidarity.”
