“Because my writing is at least a bit better than my speaking…#fridaymotivation
The appeal yesterday was intended to encourage those who were unfamiliar with the work of EC to buy into and support its mission. But more than that, I found it was a huge motivator for us as students and direct benefactors of the college.
Seeing three ‘generations’ of people who have traversed this path, up there representing the legacy of scholarship that EC stands for, I could almost visualise the blessed transmission through time and I realised, I want nothing more than to be part of this.
I often muse about where I’d be if I hadn’t chanced upon this path. Yesterday I found myself wondering at my personal loss had I not come across such inspirational people. Every single one of them in their own way spurs me to do more and to do better, from Ustadh Shams’s super crazy work ethic, to Ustadh Mujahid himself as encyclopaedia of history and poetry and Allah knows what else, and even Ustadh Amjad’s passion for all things geeky!
And there are countless others behind the scenes whom I would never have otherwise known, who teach me every day that if there is anything in this world worth aspiring to, it is *this*.
Sometimes I despair that they’ve set the bar so high the rest of us can’t even compete.
But the amazing thing is, just being in the competition is a win in itself. 🏆”
