Congratulations and welcome to all students especially new intake 2011/2012. We believe that long-semester break already enough for us to relax our mind and soul and now its time to gain back the knowledge in this university. 

For new students, we believe that the excitement to study here can give you panic. We, have the solution on how we as IIUM students survive here. Make sure that to always renew your intention to study here for the sake of Allah.

" 'Umar b. al-Khattab narrated that the Prophet (S) said: Deeds are [a result] only of the intentions [of the actor], and an individual is [rewarded] only according to that which he intends. Therefore, whosoever has emigrated for the sake of Allah and His messenger, then his emigration was for Allah and His messenger..."
[Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim]

“Say (O Muhammad): ‘Verily, I am commanded to worship Allah (alone) by obeying Him and doing religious deeds sincerely for His sake only.”
[Surah az-Zumar : 11]


This is how we do the in International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM)

  • Develop positive attitude- Always  keep in touch with Allah as He is the only one who give us opportunity to live and to gain knowledge.
  • Intention- Always renew your intention, for what and who? For the sake of Allah.
  • Train early- Do not try to suspend the work or tutorial given by Lecturers.
  • Attend all the class- Try not to skip your class especially in heavy subjects.
  • Study with professor- Try to come to your lecturer if any question lingering your mind.
  • Form your study group- Easy your learning by discussing each other.
  • Establish regular study habits- Maintain your study, manage your time. Sleep less, Study more.
  • Ask for help- ask your senior as they can give you instruction what to do next base on their experiences.
  •  Never give up- Keep trying man!!! Do not rapidly relented when your grades turns to something you not aspected and learn from failure.
  • Go to Kuliyah Tazkiyatun-nafs (remedy for heart)- Keep in touch with religious program to prevent our heart from being used by 'nafs' and 'shaitan'. Search the Islamic Knowledge as IIUM provides many religious classes for it's students.
  • Take the benefits from the scholars- Make a relation and ask him/her to share their expertise in various field of studies from Engineering to Revealed knowledge.
  • Find good friends- Strengthening social networks and Islamic Brotherhood -  live up the islamic culture, peace and mutual respect.
  • Manage your money- smart money spending and saving. Invest some of your money to buy books and no to unnecessary things.
  • Involved in every community services - joined da'awah organizations, carry out the ma'ruf and prevent the munkar.


Below are some of the importance why we must seek knowledge

“It is only those who have knowledge amongst His slaves that fear Allah.” 
[Surah Al-Fatir (35): 28]

"Seek knowledge, because seeking it for the sake of Allah is a worship. And knowing it makes you more God-fearing; and searching for it is jihad, teaching it to those who do not know is charity, reviewing and learning it more is like tasbeeh. Through knowledge Allah will be known and worshipped. With the knowledge Allah will elevate people and make them leaders and imams, who will in turn guide other people." 
[Fatawa Ibn Taymiyah vol.10, p.39]

"Whoever treads on a path in search of Islamic knowledge, Allah will ease the way to Paradise for him. The angels will lower their wings, pleased with this seeker of knowledge, and everyone in the heavens and on earth will ask forgiveness for the knowledgeable person, even the fish in the deepest of waters will ask for his forgiveness” 
[Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi no.2835-sahih hadith]

May Allah give us what is good for us and what is not. Let's seek knowledge until death!!! Allahu mustaan.
