We have been busy lately especially over the last weekend. We received a call from Ustazah that Faiz has been offered a place at Sek Agama Menengah Muhammadiah at Sabak Bernam ("SAMMPS"). We have not heard of the school but through googling, we found out that it is one of the good schools under JAIS. I was impressed with the school's website (http://sammps.wordpress.com/). It has all the info you need to know about the school. The list of students being offered a place for next year together with thier results and "Jadual Balik Kampung"!!They even have lists of occupants for their dormitories for next year! Tak sangka sekolah agama pun so advance.
Last friday, we decided to go to Sabak Bernam and have a look at the school. We were totally impressed (again!) with the infrastructure and the facilities. It has two school blocks, a big hall, a madrasah and a huge compund and a football field. Even the dinning halls are separated between banin and banat. The only set back is that the school does not offer tahfiz. Otherwise, we would have considered it even though the journey to the school was long and winding. Sabak Bernam is a nice and quiet town, a good and condusive place to study.
Although Faiz has received an offer from IQKL, he is still hoping that he will get a place in MTAQ. That was his first choice. To us, it is already a blessing that he was given the opportunity to learn tahfiz at IQKL. There must be reasons for what Allah swt has given to us. What we think is best for us may not always be right. Only Allah swt knows and may we be guided by Him in all our decisions.
