5 Productive Qualities for Effective Studying

Many people read books but when asked to recall, they struggle to recall. Are you one of them? Have you been attending classes of knowledge, eager to learn about the deen, but feel you’re not retaining anything? During the lesson do you say to yourself “there’s no way I’m going to forget this point so no need writing it down”; and then a week later you cannot recall a line of the session you attended?
Whenever you go to a class or read a book, or even listen to an Islamic talk on your mp3 player, there are some productive attitudes before studying you should try to implement. Below are just a few attitudes one should have:
  1. Ikhlas
You need to ask yourself “why am I learning or reading this book”? “Is it so people can call me a knowledgeable person”? “Is it to win in debates”? Is it to draw people’s faces towards you? If any of these questions apply this is the case then you will not benefit at all in your studies.Ibn Masud said, “Knowledge is not constant narration, rather it is a light that is placed in the heart.“Indeed those who fear Allah are those who have knowledge.” [Surah Fatir verse 28]Sufyaan Ath-Thawree said: ”The excellence of knowledge is due only to the fact that it causes a person to fear and obey Allah, otherwise it is just like anything else.”





2. Intention

The very first thing one must take into consideration is that the knowledge you are about to learn is ibadah, it is a form of private worship, an action between you and Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala).Sufyaan Ath-Thawree said: ”I have never found anything more difficult than my own intentions.”Look at your deeds, those that are done in public and those done secretly, are your public deeds more than your secret deeds, do you enjoy the public deeds more than the secret? If that is the case you need to deeply look at your intention. Who are you doing it for, the people or Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala)?

3. Taqwa

The likeness of the one who remembers his Rabb and the one who doesn’t is like the living and the dead.The student of knowledge should begin with the Name of Allah and be aware that Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) is watching them. This will bring barakah to your studies insha’Allah.“Whoever attempts to be successful in seeking knowledge while insisting upon excessive eating, drinking, and sleeping is attempting the impossible.” [Excerpts taken from book ‘The Manners of the Knowledge Seeker’]

4.  Silence

Sometimes when you learn and have studied you are tempted to make your tongue loose, and you sometimes like to talk more than you like to listen.“Whoever believes in the last day let him say what is good or remain silent” [Bukhari]Imam Shafi’ee said if you wish to say something, let him think, if you conclude that there is no harm, speak. If you conclude that your words will bring about harm, do not speak.Luqman (may Allah be pleased with him) was asked “How did you become so wise? He replied: I do not ask for what I don’t need, and I don’t speak about what does not concern me.” [Excerpts taken from book ‘The Manners of the Knowledge Seeker’]

5.  Humility

Another attitude we should have is to respect our teachers and know that there is someone always more knowledgeable than ourselves.Imam Shafi’ee said, ”I would turn the pages of my books in front of Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) in a very soft and quite way so that he wouldn’t be bothered by noise, out of respect for him.”Ibn Abbas: “I humbled myself as a student so I became honourable as a teacher.”



Conclusion
When one learns knowledge, it should humble them. If you say, I see knowledgeable people with bad manners, what you see is mere speech that they concoct up with their tongues at times, and reject at times with their hearts. This is not sincere knowledge that has penetrated into their lives.
In order to be productive we need to learn manners, manners with knowledge. Abdullah ibn Mubarak said: “I spent thirty years learning manners and twenty years learning knowledge.”
The next time we want to study let us see if we can have these 5 simple productive attitudes to increase the benefits of our efforts.

Firman Allah (swt):
 "Allah telah bersaksi bahawasanya tidak ada Tuhan (yang berhak disembah) melainkan Dia,(demikian pula) para Malaikat dan orang-orang yang berilmu, yang menegakkan keadilan. Tidak adaTuhan (yang berhak disembah) melainkan Dia, Yang Maha Perkasa lagi MahaBijaksana." (surah Ali 'Imran,ayat:18)


Alhamdulillah, tahniah diucapkan kepada para mahasiswa/i yang baru kerana dipilih menjadi ahli keluarga UiTM Cawangan Kelantan yang baru.Insya Allah, dengan kehadiran kalian dalam keluarga yang baru dapat lagi menambahkan seri serta ilmuan yang menuntut ilmu di sini.

Mahasiswa/i sekelian,
Di dalam ayat di atas menunjukkan bahawasanya Allah SWT telah meletakkan kedudukan orang berilmu di tempat yang tinggi dan hanya betul-betul makhluk yang meng-Esakan Allah selepas daripada malaikat ialah orang yang berilmu.Hal ini menunjukkan bahawasanya menuntut ilmu merupakan menjadi keutamaan serta menjadi syarat bahawasanya hanya untuk mengenal Islam lebih-lebih lagi Tuhannya . Semasa di Madinah, Rasulullah SAW telah bermesyuarat dengan para sahabat mengenai nasib para tawanan peperangan Badar. Umar mencadangkan supaya dibunuh semua para tawanan perang manakala Abu Bakar As-Siddiq mencadangankan agar diminta wang tebusan.Cadangan Abu Bakar mendapat sokongan para sahabat dan Rasulullah SAW menerima bahawa diminta wang tebusan bagi setiap para tawanan peperangan dan mana-mana tawanan yang miskin tetapi berpengetahuan dikehendaki mengajar sepuluh kanak-kanak sehingga menjadi pandai. Rasulullah SAW tidak mahu mengsia-siakan kepakaran yang ada pada para tawanan yang miskin dimana yang mempunyai pengetahuan dikehendaki mengajar kanak-kanak Islam Madinah supaya pandai.Disini menunjukkan kepentingan mempunyai ilmu pengetahuan.

Mahasiwa/i sekelian,
            Sejarah telah membuktikan bahawasanya hanya orang yang berani dan gigih Berjaya . Perkara ini dapat dilihat pada zaman kerajaan Islam Abbasiyah dimana lahirnya para ilmuaan yang pakar dan faqih dalam bidang masing-masing seperti Al-Khawarizmi dalam matematik, Ibn Sina dalam bidang perubatan dan lain-lain lagi. Selain ilmuan Islam yang silam, antara ilmuan Islam kontemporari adalah TunDr Mahathir, Prof. Dr Yusuf Al-Qardhawi, dan lain-lain lagi . Setiap para ilmuan Islam bukan hanya mempunyai kepakaran yang berkisar dalam bidang masing-masing, tetapi mereka semua mampu mempunyai menguasai cabang ilmu lain seperti Ibn Sina amat mahir dalam selok-belok hokum-hakam Islam danTun Dr. Mahathir pakar dalam bidang ekonomi sehingga mampu berjaya memodenkan Malaysia sebagai sebuah Negara Islam. Mahasiswa/i diingatkan supaya mempunyai multilevel-knowlegde atau kepelbagaian ilmu supaya mempunyai pelbagai pengetahuan dan bukan hanya berkisar kepada apa yang dipelajari dalam kuliah sahaja. Insya Allah



Mahasiswa/i sekelian
            Universiti Teknologi Mara telah memenuhi kriteria-kiteria sebagai universiti yang bersifat global bahkan global.Kalian merupakan penuntut yang terpilih disebuah univresiti yang melahirkan graduan-graduan yang memenuhi kriteria-kriteria yang diperlukan dalam pasaran pekerjaan.Pepatah arab mengatakan ‘tuntutlah ilmu dari buaian hingga ke liang lahad’. Ilmu bukan sahaja diperolehi di dalam bilik kuliah, bahkan diluar dan dimana-mana sahaja boleh terjadi majlis ilmu . Saidina Ali pernah mengatakan sesiapa yang mengajarnya walaupun satu huruf maka dia gurunya. Lihatlah para sahabat sekelian, ilmu berada dimana-mana sahaja . Antaranya ilmu kemahiran insaniah atau soft-skill yang amat diperlukan dalam bidang pekerjaan . Mahasiswa/i boleh menyertai pelbagai aktiviti sukan atau persatuan untuk menggarapkan kemahiran yang  ada pada diri dan ingatlah, hanya Islam sahaja yang boleh memandu kepada kejayaan dunia dan akhirat . Insya Allah.

Dayung sampan tuju haluan
Membawa rokok bersama rempah
Kalau ilmu tidak diamalkan
Ibarat pokok tidak berbuah.

Sekian, TerimaKasih

Yang Benar
