The term was over with the Hafazan exam yesterday. Alhamdulillah. We had to memorize 3 chosen surah that were decided by the Ustazah. Everyone did her good job and managed to memorize all of them. Of course, we actually had to memorize 13 or 14 surah altogether. But, during the exam, we only need to recite 3 - not our choice though :).
I am contented with everything that I've learned during this 3 months period. Some of them are:
- Arabic - this one is totally new to me. The language is classical arabic (Al Quran language). I can't simply use them in the street because many people here are using simple language (bahasa pasar cakap melayu).
- Tajweed - it is more affective when we learn the hukum and we apply it towards our quranic reading. I found that it is the easiest way to remember the hukum. Anyway, the hukum can be used throughout the Al Quran. Once we know how to apply them, we could recite the Quran without much difficulties. Insyaallah.
- Hafazan - Yeah... all of us or may be many of us did go for quranic reading when we were small. Our 'tok guru' always asked us to memorize suroh from Juz Amma. We did memorize many surah. But! We stopped somewhere. We didn't continue memorizing. Then, we forgot many of the surah. We??? I think I should change 'we' to 'I'. Now that I realized about it, I should start to recite the suroh persistently. Not once a year kinda thing okay Neeza..
- Feqah - I discover many / lots of new knowledge in here. Partly, it is due to a different teaching - Malaysia vs Saudi Arabia. One thing I like is, I've learned 'the prophet ways of doing things'. Insyaallah, if time allows, I'll share the knowledge with my fellow friends here.
Frankly, some of the lesson are not new to me. I did learn about them when I was in school, long time ago. Without refreshing, the ilmu is faded. I'll try to practise / use the knowledge that I've gained from the class. Insyaallah.
I'll be spending time with my kids at home. That relieves me a lot as many knows I have
many some problems with my new helper. When I'm home, I could observe her better. After the one month contract is over, I'll hunt for a new one. Insyaallah. Please help me Ya Allah...
My new semester will start on 28th February 2009. That means, I would have about 3 weeks to rest. Sometimes I forget that I'm still in my confinement period hehehehh..
