A Smile From Heart
5 months non-work for clinical taught me to improve my skill (even I have no time to practice all the procedure), at least the knowledge I gained and grab can hold me confident.
First day in clinical posting for the first semester in second year. I never went to the ward with this type of feel. I feel good. Starting from riding my motorbike, when I see the gate of hospital, I smile spontaneously. Wow, I can guess what type of feel is this. I have felt it before when I was in Hulu Selangor, and also every time I entering the IIUM Kuantan campus in Indera Mahkota campus.
Today, nothing special except I recognize something different in HTAA setting. The management of hospital starts their work with reciting the du’a using hospital sound system. A beautiful dua’. Nice and easy for Muslim and non-Muslim to understand the du’a with the translation recited.
Previously I just experienced this nice environment in HUSM Kubang Kerian when I was a patient stay in bed for hernioplasty for inguinal hernia treatment. And also when I look after for my mum in the same hospital.
I asked one final year medical student that I know quite well, known as ‘Kak Wahid’ , “When they start this du’a recitation?” “Oh, they just continue this ritual from Ramadan.” Oh, I hope this step can encourage many more good deeds in Pahang society that I feel they are very thirst on meaning of life. The right way of life, al-Islam.
Second interesting I got today is the happy bangle cleaner that always sing a lot of song when he is working. Sometimes sound like he is recite the quranic recitation, sometimes like nashid, but the thing is I don’t understand his song. All are in Urdu’s or Bangladesh language. I am ignorant in that language. What I understand was just when he recite the Quranic recitation in a happy tone.
Feel so embarrassed when an old Chinese man (one of my patient) can speak Bangladesh language fluently. English, Chinese and Malay language just the normal thing if he can speak it very well. I need to restrengthen my target on languages empowerment.
1) Start our day with a du’a and hope to ALLAH.
2) Be happy and calm with whatever destiny ALLAH’s stated for us. That’s why ALLAH sees not for our job or our smartness. ALLAH looks just for the ‘qalbun salim’.
3) Meaning of life is so wide and open to all regardless our profession. Just we deny grabbing the Meaning of life in front of ours because of our skeptics, ignorance, generation-centered, and close minded mind. Islam is the way of life. The eternal truth about meaning of life.
Can we clean this stuffs happily? Analyze our spirit honestly
