Another Teary Farewell


As I stepped out of my last class today, I felt as if a heavy burden has been lifted off my shoulders. Another semester is over. I know my job is never ending, but the official job as a teacher to my students this semester has ended.
After giving them my farewell address, I invited them to speak up to the class. I honestly don't know what to expect from them, just any last words to me and their classmates.

I was pleasantly surprise to hear the words from them. I truly believe that they spoke from their hearts. Some of them spoke amidst tears flowing, their voices trembling, but what touched me most were the fact that the spontaneous words came out so beautiful. Beautiful words and sentences that can only came up from sincere hearts.

To all my students who spoke up today( and yesterday), thank you for your inspiring words. I am so proud of you. I hope now you understand the true meaning of sincerity. When you are sincere, beautiful things just came out naturally.
To those who choose to remain quiet, I believe some things are better left unsaid, the look on your face explained the unspoken words. My thanks to you too.
I have learned a lot from all of you.

To all my students, I wish you all the best. Be patient, be brave, be strong, you are here to be tested. Remember, just like the butterfly, you need to struggle hard to strengthen your wings so that you can fly.
May Allah guide you in this blessed journey of seeking knowledge to be a better person.
We might not be able to meet frequently in person, let us all meet in our prayers. And please remember my last request to all of you.

To all my students, if you feel the need to thank me, let me remind you again that the one who deserve the highest thanks and praises is HE, the One who created me and you. I won't be there for you all the time, but HE will.
Trust me. HE is The Most Merciful, HE is very close to you.

"Trust me. HE is The Most Merciful, HE is very close to you."

To insani81,

Jangan lakukan sesuatu kerana manusia, lakukan lah kerana Allah, kerana Dia yang akan memberikan ganjaran.

All the best in the final. Just do your best,and leave the rest to Him, that's all.
