Majlis Solat Hajat dan Qiammullail - 28 Mei 2012

Salam semua.

Bersempena dengan peperiksaan pada bulan Mei yang lepas, pelajar-pelajar tahun 2 Kajian Khidmat Sosial telah mengadakan Majlis Solat Hajat dan Qiammullail yang dikelolakan oleh Ahmad Safwan Bin Zakaria. Majlis adalah julung kali diadakan oleh pelajar Social Work dan tidak rasmi. Majlis adalah inisiatif pelajar-pelajar sendiri.

Walaupun agak terlambat untuk saya menulis di dalam diari Alumi Pelajar & Pensyarah Kajian Khidmat Sosial ini, tetapi saya tetap menghargai sahabat-sahabat yang telah bersama sama menghadirkan diri di Surau Al-Mustakim, Kota Samarahan selama 2 hari pada 28 Mei 2012 lalu.

Program bermula pada pukul 6.30 iaitu solat Maghrib dan kemudian bersolat Isyak.

Pelajar-pelajar kemudian makan malam beramai-ramai. Makan malam adalah hasil masakan ahli Social Work. Nasi putih dan ayam masak kicap.

Ukhuwah dieratkan lagi apabila semua pelajar makan beramai-ramai di dalam talam/dulang. 

Selepas itu, kami juga mengadakan sedikit ice-breaking untuk merapatkan lagi ukhuwah. Sesi ini dikendalikan sendiri oleh saudara Safwan dan sangat menyentuh hati. Kami dapat mengenal lebih dekat lagi rakan-rakan kami setelah sama-sama berkongsi rasa hati dan ramai yang menitiskan air mata setelah mengenal lebih dekat sahabat-sahabat Social Work.

Pelajar-pelajar perempuan telah bermalam di bilik khas yang dilengkapi penghawa dingin manakala pelajar lelaki berada di dalam surau.

Pada pukul 4 pagi pelajar-pelajar bangun dan bersama-sama melakukan qiammullail - solat-solat sunat, solat subuh dan membaca Ma'thurat.

Sebelum pulang, pelajar-pelajar bersama-sama bersarapan air teh dan roti. 

Walaupun majlis ini tidak dapat disertai oleh kesemua pelajar tetapi majlis ini telah mengeratkan lagi hubungan ahli-ahli Kajian Khidmat Sosial. Semoga majlis seperti ini diteruskan pada masa akan datang dan melibatkan kesemua pelajar termasuk para pensyarah Social Work dan pelajar-pelajar bukan Islam.

Kami mengucapkan Selamat Datang kepada pelajar-pelajar tahun 1 yang akan mendaftar pada bulan September 2012. Saya berharap agar kesemua adik-adik dapat menyelami program Kajian Khidmat Sosial dan mengeratkan ukhuwah sesama kita.

Salam Ramadhan, Happy Holiday, Good Luck and Congratulations to Social Work Students

Assalamualaikum and hi everyone!

Salam Ramadhan and Happy Holiday.

Firstly, I would like to congratulate all seniors who are going to attend the convocation day this October. May success be with you always !

On behalf of the committee, I am very sorry for not updating this alumni's blog. Everyone is so busy with intersession and holiday that we are not able to keep this blog updated.

I am pretty sure everyone is aware with the Royal Melbourne Institute Technology (RMIT) Student Exchange Programme which involved three of the 3rd year social work students - Medelinna Ling, Ezzah Alias and Boon Nyuk Phin. The programme is only for one semester.

Since this is a student exchange programme between RMIT-UNIMAS, there are three students from RMIT are going to attend the semester in UNIMAS as well. 

UNIMAS' students to RMIT:
1-Boon Nyuk Phin
2-Ezzah Alias
3-Medelinna Ling

RMIT's students to UNIMAS:
1-Ann Rachael Lupton
2-Kadija Abdullatif
3-Yara Mignon

The semester in Melbourne started on July. However, Boon Nyuk Phin is not able to attend this semester and will go for the next semester which is on February 2013. 

By the way, Dr Ling How Kee is going to visit RMIT University this 20 August 2012 to meet with these 5 students from UNIMAS and RMIT University.

These are some of the pictures captured at RMIT University by Medelinna and Ezzah:

This was captured during orientation day. The orientation involved all exchange students from 26 countries all around the world - Hong Kong, Japan, Vietnam, US, Sweden, German, Mexico etc.

I hope everyone will enjoy these pictures. I will write some experiences and information that they got during their stay in Melbourne next time to share with the fellow social work mates.

All the best to those who are going take examination this week during intersession !
