The Point

بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم
In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious and the Most Merciful

The Point of Coming to Class

What is the point of waking up early every morning to go to 8 am classes?

What is the point of sitting in a classroom when there are other things you'd rather be doing?

What is the point of fighting the urge to doze off during lectures?

Hmm...exactly...what is the point in doing all this?

It is the very essence which drives Muslim scholars of the past to walk the distance, literally, for just one hadith.

It is the very reason why some had to drink their own pee in order to escape death by dehydration.

It is what pushes them to go on even though they might not achieve their goals, at the beginning.
