[ISR PennState 2007]

When: Saturday, March 17th
Where: 302 HUB

this year, Penn State was chosen by MISG to host Islamic Spring Retreat (ISR). all I can say, it was quite a successful one. yeah of course there were few glitches here and there.

this year theme was “Success : Balancing Amal in Daily Hecticity”. we invited two speakers from the Muslim community here to give out the lectures. the event started with Bro. Muhammad Salem gave a lecture on ‘Balancing Time in Islam’ and elaborate more on how we should balance our time devoted to things related to the dunya(world) and akhirat (hereafter). he also reminded us to appreciate the time that we have. there’s a hadith of the Prophet (pbuh),: “There are two things humans are decieved by: their health, and their time.” . in Brother Muhammad Atiyyat’s ‘How Islam Promotes Excellence’, he stressed the importance and the benefits that we could get if we follow the Sunnah Rasulullah (peace be upon him) and apply them in our daily life.

then we have few indoor games that also relates to time management. well, actually, the outdoor activity committee planned to play some games outside, but we have to cancel the plan due to the snow storm. and because of the storm too, some of the participants from other universities arrived later in the evening and some couldn’t even make it to come =(

hmm…the night before ISR, called my mom. i cried when i asked her to pray for the event (not sure whether she realized it..heh). wasn’t feeling comfortable and i was scared because somehow, i feel that this event will not run smoothly and will not meet the expectation. i’m not a good leader or manager. i’m bad at making decisions. but, at least this whole experience, thought me a lot of things…from now on, i’ll try to control my anger (no wonder ade jr. in high school ckp i’m one of the senior yg garang..hehh) and be more patient next time..

to all the committee and pennstaters..thanx a lot guys…May Allah bless and reward you for all your effort…insyaAllah~
