Why am I here in Russia?

Posted by Muslim Student Network on May 17, 2009

Ever wonder why a person is willing to leave behind his or her loved ones, families, relatives, home country and the comfort of being a part of the majority all the way to Russia or thousands of kilometers away from home? Have ones expected that he/she one day would further his/her studies here?

Thousands of ringgits are spent, ample of our valuable times are consumed and the fact that we may not see our parents and siblings again for the rest of the year – all of it must be for a good cause right? What else could pilot someone to carry out such big amount of sacrifices, right?

Then again, does merely reading medicine successfully fulfill the criteria and can be considered as a good reason? Sure, one would argue that medicine abroad is different to medicine locally. True I agree, especially the system, experiences + and extra language. But does it (solely) qualifies as good cause? What are the criteria?

I’m sure no one would disagree with the following statement: << Any action that serves to fulfill our purpose or objective – is a good reason but only and of course if the intention underlying the action is for the sake of Allah and Allah only >>

For Rasulullah s.a.w. said:
Abu Hafs ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab r.a. said: “I heard Allah’s Messenger s.a.w. saying: The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will receive the reward according to what he has intended. So, whoever emigrates for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, his emigration will be (counted as being) for Allah and His Messenger” – collected by al-Bukhari and Muslim [An-Nawawi’s Forty Hadiths]

Referring to the above text, if our true intention is for studying medicine/engineering only or maybe to gain new experiences that one may only gain abroad, insyaAllah, Allah will grant us just that.

But what if our true intention is solely to study for the sake of Allah and Islam, think of the reward Allah has in store and what a meaningful stay it would be for us. However, a question still remains unattended. What is our purpose in life? Quoting a verse from the holy Quran:

“I have only created jins and men, that they may serve Me. No sustenance (food or provisions) do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me. For Allah is He who gives (all) sustenance, Lord of Power, Steadfast” [51:56-58]

Yes, that summarizes it all. If our action (i.e. read medicine in moscow) serves to accomplish our goals above, only then does it qualifies for all of our sacrifices to be rewarded accordingly insyaAllah (but you have to be honest to yourself). Fear not, there’s still time to make amend. =).

Your respective seniors would be more than happy to lend a helping hand (I’m sure).

Ibn ‘Umar r.a. said, Allah’s Messenger s.a.w. took hold of my shoulder and said, “Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveler” – collected by al-Bukhari.

Why traveler? Coz life in this world in only temporary and it is the hereafter that matters most. So again, are we really prepared for the eternal life? How hard have we tried to achieve our purpose in life?
