Well, Spring Camp UK [SCUK], my first spring camp after almost 7 months being in UK. Can't begin to say how much He wants me to learn in this camp. What really get to me was the fact that He gives two perspectives to us in seeing things.
When things happen to us, we can either see in it a good way or a bad way.
فَأَلۡهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقۡوَٮٰهَ
And inspired it (with conscience of) what is wrong for it and (what is) right for it. (8)We can always see things in a negative way, that is for sure. But Allah will always gives us the choice to see it in the good way as well. The choice is in our hand, 'cause we choose how to view things the way it is, be it good or bad.
Well, about SPRING CAMP. The experience was priceless. Even though it wasn't a five stars event in terms of accommodations and technicality, but again, it wasn't five stars from a human point of view, it was the best if it's what destined for us by Allah.
We had to sleep in a marquee(a large tent) for the first night. And despite having a large heater, the coldness was almost unbearable. ALMOST. I managed to sleep through the night. One of the sisters said to us while we were eating breakfast the next day, Alhamdulillah, we still have food to eat, people in PALESTINE have to sleep through cold night with nothing to eat. SubhanAllah! There is always a better perspective in seeing every bad events that happened to us.
I have to admit, i was a bit scared for the next night, 'cause having to sleep again in that coldness, i don't know how i am going to survive this time. Why? because i have expectations and i know how it feels. But Alhamdulillah, He destined us to sleep in a building the next night.
All in all, even with some technical problems, and to be honest i was a bit frustrated and angry with some people, but a conversation with a sister made me realised that we can always see things in a good ways, we can always try to see the good in people, have good thought about people. The way she put things made me rethink about everything. Maybe Allah wants us to experience all those difficulties to make us more appreciative with what we have. Maybe it was a learning process for those people as well, in managing events. Maybe Allah wants us to be more patience with challenges as this 'road' does not become easier as we go further along it. As for me, i need to have patience and have more acceptance in anything that happens.
I have to say, I learnt a lot in this three days two night event. There was always things to ponder every single second i was there. Being a part of it was a golden opportunity that Allah gave to me and for that, I thank Him for everything, Alhamdulillah.
