The word of wisdom is the lost property of the believer. Wherever he finds it, he is most deserving of it (Sunan al-Tirmidhī 2687).
An Introduction to Me, this blog and some of my motives.
In the name of the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful Allah.
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
فَفَهَّمْنَاهَا سُلَيْمَانَ ۚ وَكُلًّا آتَيْنَا حُكْمًا وَعِلْمًا
And We gave understanding of the case to Solomon, and to each We gave judgement and knowledge…(Al Qur’an, Surat Al-’Anbyā’, 21:79)
In 2020, I embarked on a Master’s of Project Management with Monash Online. Truth be told, I did not take interest to my studies. I just focused to get through my assignments, and so my team members would not have a negative impression on me. Added to my list of motivation was to set a good example for Muslims.
And it did work. Alhamdulillah (praise be to Allah) :) Or atleast it worked in the beginning when I was more serious. I got the following praise from one of my team members:
Samet, that is such a wonderful reflection on the semester. Thank you so much for sharing that with us. It was beautifully written and I love the use of poetry and the text from Qur’an.
I agree, the semester was such a deep learning experience for me as well, coming back to university after 30 years.
I was also very fortunate to have such experienced team mates who assisted with such positivity.
Samet, you have such a deep faith which reflects a joyful positivity which shines through all that you do.
Your reflection and gratitude are inspirational, it was lovely working with you. ~Team Member
It was in July 2021, I think I was reading through one of my “essential readings” when it stuck me the real motif for this effort: To benefit Islam and Muslims.
This sudden piece of insight and aim, changed everything. The study became more interesting for me. The study itself became worship, inshaAllah.
For there are many wisdoms, gems, hacks, and benefits from the study of Project Management that can help Islam and Muslims and anyone who seeks benefit. This blog will be about that.
The Prophet ﷺ said in a hadith, as narrated by Abu Huraira:
الْكَلِمَةُ الْحِكْمَةُ ضَالَّةُ الْمُؤْمِنِ فَحَيْثُ وَجَدَهَا فَهُوَ أَحَقُّ بِهَا
The word of wisdom is the lost property of the believer. Wherever he finds it, he is most deserving of it.
Sunan al-Tirmidhī 2687, Daif according to Darussalam, Hasan according to As Suyuti
And with this we will conclude. Blessings and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, and his family and companions. And peace be upon the Messengers. And praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
