I find considerable interest in reading (either literature or current affairs) and teaching/tutoring which I enjoy doing in my spare time without any form of profit. These interests, I feel, in some form demonstrate my own personal capacity for leadership, commitment in using whatever knowledge which I have been fortunate to gain in serving my community. I have been able to benefit and make use of the educational theories of Piaget and Erikson, as well as several other later psychologists whose theories and ideas I have learned in order to teach effectively. The concept of being able to learn something useful and meaningful and then convey it to another person in a way which is understandable and appealing to them is something which allures me. I feel that not only the lessons which I am able to impart will be beneficial, but also the techniques used to understand these lessons will prove useful (ultimately improve the lives of those whom I teach).
I feel that with the experience and skills I have gained whilst undertaking two internships, I may be able to, in the future contribute towards the economic betterment of my country. Further more, through my work with the Global Program for Introducing the Prophet of Mercy, which has as part of it's organisational goals which is basically a program implemented to has taught me much regarding the types of stereotypes and racism which exist worldwide, as well as the methods which can be implemented in order to combat it.
Rather, he was far from this, his companions, who knew him best told of the poverty in which he lived. It is quite remarkable, when one contemplates over the fact that the Prophet (peace be upon him)
The word "ghaib" in the Qur'an is used for hidden things that man cannot see or know. Things that will happen in the future are unknown to us, for instance. Yet everything to do with the future, the future of every individual, country, building and piece of furniture is known to Allah. This is how the Prophet (peace be upon him) was told to explain the knowledge of the invisible (ilm-ul-ghaib) lies solely with Allah:
"Say: 'Allah knows best how long they stayed. The unseen of the heavens and the earth belong to him. How perfectly he sees, how well he hears! They have no protector apart from him. Nor does he share his rule with anyone.'" (Surat al-Kahf: 26)
"Say: 'No one with the heavens or the earth knows the unseen except Allah.' They are not aware of when they will be raised.'" (Surat an-Naml: 65)
"Say: 'My lord hurls forth the truth – the knower of all unseen things.'" (Surah Saba': 48)
