Heres the Eid Al-Fitr Pictures in our house in Iligan City – lunch time. I forgot to have a pictures with the IMT-Team Site 2 because i was so busy serving foods. Our house is full with relatives and we thought the food we prepare the night before is not sufficient. Thanks to Allah that everything was served and they go home stomach full.
I know you’ve been wondering why part of this post title is Johannesburg, South Africa?
Because in Johannesburg, South Africa my younger brother next to me – Muhammad Ali Malambut Macarambon (picture: at the right) will be going there. He will be pursuing higher study in Islamic theology. It’s been so many years that he is really insisting to my parents to study abroad in some Islamic school like in Mecca, Madina or in Egypt’s famous Al-Azhar University where late Amir Hashim Salamat, Moro Islamic Liberation Front founder and chairman attained his islamic studies.
A very well-known Madrassah Arabia Islamia, better known as Darul Uloom Azaadville, Johannesburg, South Africa is where my brother will spent for the next 6years. Alhamdulillah my brother’s wish granted by Allah S.W.T..
I’m gonna miss him and 6years is very long. I wish god will grant him good health and safe thoughout his journey to increase his knowledge.
“Whoever travels a path seeking knowledge, Allah eases for them a path to Paradise.” Abu Dawud
Since 6years is very long i plan to visit him there, Inshallah (if God wills). I hope in the coming 2years my financial capabilities will be stable and can afford the expensive trip to Johannesburg, South Africa.
After Muhammad Ali theres another younger brother who will also follow in Johannesburg, South Africa to pursue higher Islamic knowlege – Hafiz Muhammad Jaffar Malambut Macarambon. He is already a Hafiz – who have completely memorized the Quran page to page. Currently he is reviewing before can travel. One condition my father before he will allow Muhammad Jaffar to study abroad is finish his high school or secular education – Jaffar only finish 1st year highschool.
I envy their knowledge about Islam and i feel guilty because i’m a deviant in my practice being a Muslim.
In their quest for more knowledge particularly Islam and being thousands miles away across oceans and seas i hope and pray from deep in my heart we will meet again. Inshallah.
