I came in contact with MICA when there was a great resurgence in Islamic
awareness, while others preached the strong adherence to doctrines MICA offered an
understanding of the why's (the objective) of the doctrines. It also offered a range of
opinions on various matter, leaving me with a choice to choose that which I was most
comfortable with. #notsimple, notislam#
Hnmm. MICA has been an integral part of my growth intellectually and spiritually.
The content offered by MICA year after year has been spot on . MICA has become a
part of me.
Hokay, here goes:
I'd joined MICA in my 2nd/3rd year in Uni; a stage in my life where I was trying to be a
better Muslim with the stress of finishing my degree.
15+ years down the line, and saddled with the hard task of 'growing up' and its many
responsibilities in the name of career progression, family, deen progression, earning a
decent living- MICA's lectures have been a kind of reference point which helps me get
back on track in most of these areas in my life I'm seeking to find the right balance for.
For me I saw people who were selfless in their service to the Deen and I saw how
Allah rewarded their service to Him by elevating all of them, so I imbibed selfless service
too. I realized in my life journey that Allah has brought respite from where I least
My summary is that MICA is a safe place
The community of MICA reminds me of the saying of the Prophet's (may the
peace and blessings of Allah be with the Prophet) that: ``surround yourself with people
that constantly remind you of Allah (SWT) and enjoin the doing good``. This MICA and its
members have been doing for me. Alihamdulillahi
