Adapt and Adopt

In the name of Allah as-Salam, al-Mu’min, al-Muhaimin … The Source of Peace, The Inspirer of Faith and The Guardian. Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh my dear all. May Allah have mercy on us, aamiiin.

How’s life? Falling into places or breaking apart. Allahu. Just asking. No matter what occasion occurred in our life, keep the mind at ease because we always bear in mind Allah’s help is near. Be positive even it's easier said than done. 

Hearing a lot of my colleagues tested with illness and bits of problem making me realized; how bless they are by Allah azza wa jalla. He’s putting my colleagues in the state of,

“Ask me anything, I’ll grant you immediately!” SubhanAllah.

My nerves feel the vibe of blessing. Allah do test them, but somehow Allah did place them in such higher level in granting their prayers. MasyaAllah. None forces in this world can beat the power of Allah the All-knowing. May Allah swt keep all Muslims in this world safe and joyful. Aamiiin. Allahumma aamiiin.

ADAPT ... A ‘lil piece of sharing today meant to be taken by adapting towards the situation we’re facing. Well, it might not suitable for certain cases. However, adapting seriously making big changes in me. 

From a so called ‘teacher’ point of views ~

Every single year, adapting to a new batch of student is a must thing to do for me. First things first, the equation that I manage to gather is making steps towards adapting process. 

First month of school is the trivial one. The moment of remembering their names and their perseverance. If the first step taken wrongly, awkward phase will follow upon. Huhu. Breaking the adequate wall between us is a requirement. Don’t be too reserved, open up and they’ll try their best to open more widely.

Second month of school is the fresh one. The phase of drawing the line between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ in a very positive way … till they don’t realize even it’s a ‘no’ because they able to understand the ‘why’ behind. Try it and embrace the fresh ambience!

Third months until forever you know them is amazing. Adapting your needs and tally with their mood. Hey, they are human too. Don’t underestimate your students, they deserve an understanding mode too. Not just you. Hearts linking by the creator of the heart. So, pray to Allah to attach their hearts to yours as it happens, everything can relate just fine. La haula wala quwwata illa billah! Be true to them and to yourself too, they can read you even if you fake it. Beware ;)

From a so called ‘law practitioner’ point of views ~

If a simple session of mediation takes place, the advocate or the solicitor will absolutely use this method. Adapt yourself with your client. For the entire session, only one-third of it they’ll respond. The rest is adapting what to response. We’re not encourage to ask too much nor provoking neither. Adapting to give your eyes to analyze and your mind to brainstorm. Different client need a different style of background case check.

Adapting also giving them space and time to gather the believe in sharing their problems. It’s not a simple thing to do by sharing your problem to someone you don’t even knew before. Let them know, we’re here to understand them and ready to be on behalf someone that deserves the justice.

ADOPT … this word reminds me of a lovely person that keep on picking up the good ones out of the bad things. He’s the one and only; my beloved father.

He’s taking everything rare to a new level. Being born in an east-coast of Malaysia allocate a great challenge in everything including education. Let put it this way. My father’s lineages dislike the English language as this language comes from the native of colonialist to their state. 

Therefore, he learns at ‘pondok’ ever since young and continue his study major in Syariah and also Arabic Language. University syllabus doesn’t stop at syariah subjects only. The English Language also a compulsory. Surprisingly he scored excellent despite the environment of him which is not so encouraging. 

I wonder how he practice that after all? Hehe my amazing father just know how to fix things well, uniquely!

More about him, a figure that I adore much J He’s adopt new challenges that never been arose in his life. And, he did it neatly! What a quality that I adore in a man. 

He’s a man with principles. He’s always has his own way of justifying things. In 2017, he might be called a ‘Perfect 10 Man’ lorh. Hehe. Migrating from a hometown to another with different styles of living, doesn’t stop him from make his friends love him a lot.

A person which is very accurate in saying important things, very substance in enhancing the needs and wants, very soft-hearted and practical too. He’s a perfectionist but not even once making others having trouble to fulfilled his preferences. He adopts the positive vibe and spontaneously inspired others to do so without pressure. 

How I miss him damn much! That’s why Allah swt loves him more J

So, if you are new in a certain place; take a deep breath … inhale exhale … looks around and suit yourself to adapt and blend in with others without having essence of hypocrisy. A lot of people might be judging and assuming about you. Answer them without words, just act honestly and keep tightly in mind; Allah’s with you! Allah will help you in making them understands you. Believe me, I’ve been there and done that. Hypothesis proven. Hihi. You’re you, don’t change who you are. Let them know the real you, and you’ll be astonished how distinct you’re. Alhamdulillah.

The step you’re taking … please keep on moving. Don’t forget to adopt any positive vibe that fluctuate along the way. It’s a gift from Allah azza wa jalla in making you the greater you in the future. Set your goal bright and persistent. My recipes of prayer that I always shared it with my students are ‘The du’aa should constantly be idealistic, realistic and specific J

Thanks a bunch for stopping by and reading all the way till the end of my ramblings. May Allah grant you the best out of the best within your prayers and grant us Jannah al-Firdaus.  Allahumma aamiiin. Up until we meet again in the next entry, spread love ❤

BarakAllahu lakum jamii’an
