MOTIVATION AND MENTORING WORKSHOP
By Dr. OTHMAN MUJAHID
17th March 2019

If You Refuse to Drink from the Fountain of Knowledge, you will Die from the Thirst of Ignorance

That was the opening statement from Dr. Othman Mujahid in a Mentorship Workshop for ALIM High School students on Sunday 17th March 2018.

Dr. Mujahid is a well-known Educationist and a powerful Motivational Speaker in the country. Alhamdu Lillah! He has involved himself in Youth Mentorship programs in many schools and institutions. Dr. Mujahid is a graduate of McGraw University with a PhD in Educational Management.

The Management had invited Dr. Mujahid to “Motivate and Mentor” the Students of Alim High School. Accompanying Dr. Mujahid was Sh. Khalfan Abdallah, the Gulf Africa Bank Foundation Sharia Compliant Manager, a Scholar in his own right and Mentor.

Sh. Khalfan opened the one day workshop by carrying out a needs assessment. The students were each asked to identify three top life priorities that they would hold dearly until the end of their lives. Masha’Allah! It became a very interactive session where students enumerated different life priorities. Finally Sh. Khalfan summarized them into three – knowing and understanding the Quran and Sunnah; Ikhlas – that whatever you do in life, you should do it to please Allah; and seeking knowledge – seeking beneficial knowledge. It is those three top life priorities that can shape their lives.  He concluded his session by advising the students that in whatever situation they are in, they should always find time to read the Qur’an. He quoted Verse 73:20 of Surat Muzzammil where Allah repeats in the same verse the command, “Read, therefore, of the Qur’an as much as may be easy for you.”

Dr. Mujahid captivated and engaged the students throughout his session, taking them through the Ten Formulas of Life. He gave meaning to the four letters of the word LIFE. Explaining that: L stands for Learning – that knowledge is power, but, Learning is super-power; I is for Intelligence that is Inspired by Allah; F is for Faith – that nothing is done and done very well without Faith; E is for Encourage – that you Encourage yourself that whatever good you are doing, you are doing it very well.

Among the ten formulae are:

i.                 I + A = D which translates to - Intention and Action leads you to your Destination. He gave a parable to it by stating:

If you know the reason why, and the why can make you cry;

You will always fly even if you don’t have the wings to fly

You will go so high no matter the circumstances, even if you have to die

At the end of the day you will fly and reach the sky

Because you know the reason why.

ii.               B + B = L translating to - Belief and Becoming (not being) gives you the License to Live. He urged the students to always think with a Winner Mentality, because they were winners even before they were born. When the seeds of life (Nutfah) were released by the father, millions of them were racing towards the only egg from the mother’s fallopian tube. The winning seed fertilized the ovum. You are therefore a product of the winning seed. If you won during conception, then with a winner mentality, you will always win.

Dr. Mujahid advised that the only way to succeed in the future is for you to create that future. That if you do not have the BALANCE of MIND and HEART, you become DISTRUCTIVE. The students were encouraged not to go for what is easy and comfortable but for what is hard and necessary. That the right Attitude and Aptitude will lead them to their highest Altitude. He gave the tenth formula as, Prior-preparation prevents one from poor performance.

Finally, Dr. Mujahid asked the students to write the poem of an eighteen year old who had realized that his wayward activities were leading him astray. Dr. Mujahid dictated the 10 stanza poem in the language of the teenager:

Najua najitambua, Maovu nitararua

Mazuri nitachukua, Mimi ni mtu wa murua

Hata likin’gara jua, Lazima mwisho kutanyesha mvua

 

Najali maisha yangu, Najua umuhimu wangu

Namuogopa Mola wangu, Sipendi maisha yawe uchungu

Kufaulu ni jukumu langu, Silaumu ulimwengu.

 

Mimi ni M-boy fiti, Na tena niko Smarti

Sitaki ya ati-ati, Nikashangaza ummati

Maisha yangu sipendi yawe tight

I will always do what is right.

 

With active participation, the students loved every moment of Dr. Mujahid’s presentation. He finally split the students into ten groups. He gave them time to deliberate as a group and come up with ten things they had learnt throughout the day’s workshop. Then each group representative will come forward and read out his group’s report. It was the most fascinating experience for the students.

 

In their presentations, the students made a commitment to respect their teachers, respect the Management, respect their parents, respect each other and above all respect their studies. They repeated the ten stanza poems and the tenth formula of life, that Prior-preparation prevents one from poor performance.

 

They promised to be smart thinkers and smarter students. May Allah fortify their resolve – Ameen.
