There is an influx of postgraduate students recently at Language Academy due to an aggressive promotion in China by SRAD, thank you SRAD. The ratio of supervisor and students at Language Academy, in 2020, is 1:15. Managing a big number of supervisees requires good organisational skills. The following video will show supervisors how to organise meeting videos, notes, attendance and materials for your supervision sessions using Telegram channels and groups. And it is called Supervision Telelog.

A lesson to learn

وَالَّذِيۡنَ يُؤۡذُوۡنَ الۡمُؤۡمِنِيۡنَ وَالۡمُؤۡمِنٰتِ بِغَيۡرِ مَا اكۡتَسَبُوۡا فَقَدِ احۡتَمَلُوۡا بُهۡتَانًا وَّاِثۡمًا مُّبِيۡنًا

Al-Ahzab (33:58)

Those who cause hurt to believing men and to believing women have invited upon themselves a calumny and a manifest sin.

This verse determines the definition of slander. It is to ascribe a fault to a person which he does not have, or an error which he has not committed. The Prophet (peace be upon him) also has explained it. According to Abu Daud and Tirmidhi, when he was asked as to what is ghibat (backbiting), he replied: “It is to make mention of your brother in a manner derogatory to him.” The questioner said, “And if the fault is there in my brother?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied: “If the fault that you mentioned is there in him, you backbite him; if it is not there, you slandered him.” Such an act is not only a moral sin, which will entail punishment in the Hereafter, but this verse also requires that also in the law of an Islamic State false allegation should be held as a culpable offense.

Be Grateful

When you get something good, enjoy it.

And never forget to be thankful to Allah the Almighty

Indeed, We blessed Luqmân with wisdom, ˹saying˺, “Be grateful to Allah, for whoever is grateful, it is only for their own good. And whoever is ungrateful, then surely Allah is Self-Sufficient, Praiseworthy.”

Surah Luqman – 31:12

Happiness is enjoying little things in life

Despite being a good reminder, I found this quote has a very good sense of humour.

Patience as mentioned in the Quran

و اصبروا إن الله مع الصابرين

“…and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.” [al-Anfal 8:46].

واستعينوا بالصبر والصلاة

“And seek assistance through patience and prayer…” [al-Baqarah 2:45].

وإن تصبروا وتتقوا لا يضركم كيدهم شيئا إن الله بما يعملون محيط

“…And if you are patient and fear Allah , their plot will not harm you at all. Indeed, Allah is encompassing of what they do.…” [Al ‘Imran 3:120].

وإن عاقبتم فعاقبوا بمثل ما عوقبتم به ولئن صبرتم لهو خير للصابرين

“And if you punish [an enemy, O believers], punish with an equivalent of that with which you were harmed. But if you are patient – it is better for those who are patient.” [an-Nahl 16:126].

واستعينوا بالصبر والصلاة وإنها لكبيرة إلا على الخاشعين

And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ]…” [al-Baqarah 2:45];

وجعلنا منهم أئمة يهدون بأمرنا لما صبروا وكانوا بآياتنا يوقنون

“…And We made from among them leaders guiding by Our command when they were patient and [when] they were certain of Our signs” [as-Sajdah 32:24];

إن في ذلك لآيات لكل صبار شكور

“…Verily in this are Signs for everyone who patiently perseveres and is grateful” [ash-Shura 42:33];
