leaving the land of Musa (AS)

asalamu alaikum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatu

It is our final day here in Egypt. As I type our apartment is being cleaned inside – out to be handed over to the owner.

I apologize to the readers for a lack of recent posts. The past week was filled with exams, adventures, emotions, tasks, and reflections. I have seen tears, smiles, frowns, moans, sighs, disagreements, hugs, kisses, and farewells. After we took our final exams we took a trip to Mount Sinai (Jabal Al-toor / Jabal Musa). This trip deserves a blog post by itself, I hope other sapers will share there experience on this trip even after returning home. We climbed up-hill 7 kilometers followed by about 3000 stairs to reach the top of the Mountain were Musa 3alahi Alsalam spoke to Allah on a few occasions. You can just imagine the struggle, trial and eventually triumph involved in the physical climbing of the mountain. I just hope I was sincere in climbing the mountain, otherwise that was a lot of wasted energy! May Allah send peace and blessings on Musa (AS) for his patience and sacrifice. He must have loved and cared for bani Israel ALOT especially because of how frustratingly they responded to him. Maybe bani Israel didn’t appreciate Musa (AS) but I do, May Allah join us with him in Jannah.

We had a graduation ceremony and got certificates with official masri stamps and signatures. May Allah help us benefit ourselves and others from what we learned.

There is so much more to share from experiences and reflections.

Here are some pictures, but they will only transfer so much from the experience. You really had to be there. Don’t worry…its ok….just sign up for next years MY SAP šŸ˜‰



Reflecting on Jabal Altur

We raised the mountain above them like an umbrella, and they thought it was going to fall on them

Final gathering

globalizationā€¦ starbucks on jabal Musa!

    Assalamu 3alakum,

    I am wondering if you could give me more information about your personal experience at the institute, and how you found it and about living and finding accommodation in the area. !

    to those who make fun of “Blease”, and NABILION, should try saying
    the easy good morning in Arabic: sabah al kheir, or “sakhnaneh”
    or Jah’sh.
    Arabic the most power language in the world
    They Try Ich Liebe Dish…you would sound like an idiot
    BTW: anecdote about languages: Air France is Penis France in Arabic. ZZ (as in zztop??), little salty peter, in French
    How about a kiss? happens to mean kitty, not the feline
    let’s understand one another, not mock and shame one another
