A Day In The Life Of Haitham

One day, Haitham woke to a beautiful morning in the month of January on Saturday.  This was the day he was to give his final exam for a degree he was working on for almost two yrs.  His proctor came around noon for the exam.  The case was that Haitham was doing the exam online.  His college had the choice of online or paper so he chose online, since it was more convenient.  So, when he finished his test, the results came immediately.

He had passed and that was the end of his 2 yrs. work!  What was the secret behind his success?  The obvious reason was that he studied hard and long.  But the real reason was  that he had prayed 2 rakat before giving the exam and made constant duas during the weeks that passed!  Also, he had woken for Tahajjud prayers too!  Both of these reasons are imporatant, but the second one is the ultimate key to success in anything!

So, the thing to keep in mind is, study hard for all tests and exams, but don’t forget to remember Allah, for He is the one who makes you what you are!
