“Are you sure you’ll stop your study here, Azzam?” asked Syaih Nashir to his old student. Syaikh Nashir is one of great lecturer in Al-Azhar University.
“Yes, Syaikh! I feel I can’t continue my study in this university. I’m too idiot! I always fail in my exams. I have to study over again. I’m shy, Syaikh!” answered Azzam sadly.
“I think it’d be better if you try for a year, maybe!” said Syaikh giving his idea.
“I’m not sure, Syaikh!” Azzam had doubt with himself.
“Limadza yaa Tholibi Al ‘azizi?”
“Ana…Ana minal jahiliin, ya Syaikh. Ana la afham dirosati huna. Saarji’u ila biladi godan insha’Allah.” Azzam felt hopeless.
“Don’t be sad! Allah with you, Azzam! Please think again about it. ” said Syaikh Nashir peacefully.
“Jazakallah khoir, Syaikh.”
Azzam was seeing the beautiful scene of Cairo from his apartment when he received message from his mother.
Assalamu’alaikum Azzam. How have you been? What about your study? Please tell us about your study there! Umi, Abi and your younger sister Aisha missed you a lot. We always pray for you. A lot of loves and prayers for you. May Allah make your learning easy!
The message has touched his heart. He thought for several minutes before he answered.
Wa’alaikumussalam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, ya Umi. Alhamdulillah Azzam is well and also my study. I’ll do the best for my study. Insha’Allah this year I’ll finish it. Jazakumullah khoir for your duas and everything Umi. Allah blesses you! Azzam missed you all! Umi, Abi and Aisha in my prayers!
After reading his mother’s message, Azzam felt that he got new life spirit. A great spirit. He suddenly remembered the great word MAN JADDA WA JADA. He got this wonderful word from his Islamic Boarding School. It’s short word but meaningful. His teacher explained, we can do anything if we think we can, then follows by great duas and the last we should give all result to Allah alone.
“I CAN! I CAN! I CAN! ALLAHU AKBAR!”
Azzam told his decision to Syaikh Nashir happily.
“Subhanallah, you are doing great, Azzam!” Syaikh Nashir praised his student.
“I get great spirit from my family in Indonesia. I’d be shy if I go home with my failure. I have to study hard to finish my lesson here,” said Azzam perfently.
“Allah! Allah! I admire your spirit, Azzam. I trust you completely, YOU CAN! Allah will help you! Let’s begin our class!”
Azzam followed Syaikh Nashir to his Arabic class enthusiastically.

Limadza yaa Tholibi Al ‘azizi : Why, O my great student?
Ana…Ana minal jahiliin, ya Syaikh. Ana la afham dirosati huna. Saarji’u ila biladi godan :
I….I’m a stupid person, Sir. I don’t understand my lessons here. I’ll go home to my country tomorrow.
