Assalamualaikum wrt wbt.

Missing home!!

Ok, stay focused cik leen. I attended IMAM Symposium which was organised by IMAM Uk/Eire last weekend. MasyaAllah, it was indeed an eye opener for me in seeing medicine from the point of view of a Malaysian Muslim doctor, Dr.Munawar Muhammad Hatta. Here are some points that I managed to jot down and insyaAllah apply in my remaining years as a medical student.


1- Close relation with the Creator of life-Allah
*believe in the concept of tawheed
*concept of life and death - Izrail probably visits u even when u are treating an ill patient
*routine : doa, pray, mathurat, fasting

2- Be inspired by our role model
*Prophet s.a.w. and the Companions
*Great muslims -Ibnu Battuta, superb surgeons

3- Self dicipline and prioritization
*punctual - yes! take the earliest bus to Beaumont!
*avoid proscrastination
*stay focused - study and marriage?
*be in control - don't be too emo2 cik leen

4- Strong will and motivation
*remind of the struggle - the harder u fall, the higher u bounce!
*strive for excellence

*NEVER give up. Gambatte!

5- Academic excellence

13- Relationship with peers
*take positive thing, throw far far away bad thing
*remember 2 things (ur fault, others' good deeds)
*forget 2 things (ur good deeds to others,others' fault)
