New Year | New Friends


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.

Feeling excited about having these new kids on the block, they are my new honorable neighbors in Gelugor, Penang. The tahfiz boys moved here just two months ago. 

It's wonderful to have them recite Surah Al-Kahf in my home last Friday. May the barakah from this first Friday in Rabi'ul Awal remain fresh until the next Friday and all the Fridays in the new year. Ameen

This is their home. Madrasah Tahfiz Darul Ukasha.
Bright stars of the neighborhood, they are.
My new friends. Look forward to having more gatherings with them.
With their presence, 2015 will be a great fulfilling year, bi-iznillah

The tahfiz students comprise of Malaysian, Cambodian, Sri Lankan, Indonesian and Singaporean. They are supervised by three hafiz who are graduates of Darul Ulum Hashimiah based in Colombo. The principal, Ustaz Salim, had spent 16 years studying in Sri Lanka. Chairman of the madrasah is a Malaysian philanthropist who offered two properties of his for tahfiz school. The other one is located about 3 km away from this neighborhood. May Allah make us follow in the footsteps of the good-doers - people who help Allah's religion. May we become nahnu ansarullah

Two Cambodian boys.
So we learned, they always prefer white rice over biryani.
In the background between them is Hassan from Sri Lanka.
This was at another majlis hosted at my grandma's.
We all respect anyone and everyone who seeks knowledge [tholabul ilmi] don't we? Especially young children who commit a portion of their growing up years, to studying and memorizing the Quran. They are so lovable! May Allah make them blossom into knowledgeable and skillful men who will contribute plenty to the ummah and make us benefit from them. Ameen.
