A different perspective: Online vs. Live Classes

Fakhri (Online Student)
I might not be with all of you physically, but my thoughts and my duas are with all of you. Alhamdulillah I have a great group of online students here in Ottawa. Some of them have given up their jobs, and others are trying to manage some how to do the course, InshaAllah.
For me, online is a very different experience, but I am grateful to Allah subhanahu wa ta’aala for this opportunity. I hope the sisters in the class realilze how fortunate they are to be there, with the teacher right in front of them.
Today, the voice was breaking on the online recording and I was worried that the sisters who just started might be discouraged; but for every word that I could hear, I said Alhamdulillah! For every Muslim training ourselves to be patient is an essential step towards learning. Surah Al Fatiha teaches us to Praise the One Who gives us more than we deserve, and that is what I was thinking at that time, that I should be grateful for even what I am able to hear, inspite of this breaking voice.
We should all remember that we are given so much that is perfect, so much that we do not deserve. And when we are in a situation that is not as we would like it to be we should still be thankful to Our Creator and say Alhamdulillah. Try saying Alhamdolillah Ala Kulle Haal when things seem hard, and you will see that nothing is too difficult to bear.
Sometimes we might get tired, or feel that the class is too long, or too fast paced for us; but at that moment be grateful to Allah subhanahu wa ta’aala for giving you this great opportunity, and choosing and honouring you, to be surrounded by angels.
My dear sisters cherish and make the most of every moment you spend in learning Allah’s Deen, and make a habit of saying Alhamdulillah from the heart as it will make the task of learning easier for you and inshallah you will become more grateful.
We have been given the opportunity to do this course, while many of our sisters have not been given this blessing. Is this not a good enough reason for us to say Alhamdulillah? Do not worry about petty issues as they will begin to seem insignificant as well when we sincerely say Alhamdulillah Ala Kulle Haal.
May Allah subhanahu wa ta’aala make us the ones who are appreciative and grateful for His Blessings, Ameen.
