Lilies in glory

I don't know why i'm still sticking to some old events and still wanna share them.May be some of them were so special to me and have made a change in me in a way or another. May be i've gained something precious in some of them & wanna keep it always in mind.
One of these old events is my birthday the last 1st of May
(the labour day)
Actually i've never celebrate it and never had a birthday party following the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) in that as he never celebrated his birthday.Yes i can't deny that my family and friends used to wish me a happy birthday but no other kind of celebration. This year my b'day was such an amazing day, was extremely different although i didn't make a party, But i can say that i haven't felt soo much love like in that day, the day before and the day after it.
It was such a wonderful bless to see lots of people the day after it around me every where i go in campus wishing me a happy b'day even though lots of them were not that close class mates and i don't remember that i once told them about it. I was so astonished on the number of sms's that i've recieved at mid night which continued till the day after May 1. It was the first time to recieve such number of sms's, the first time to see and feel love even from my colleagues everywhere.
At a moment i felt that i'm definitly in a dream, when i went to the chemistry course in May 1 and the doctor (who always seemed to be a more or less tough with students) said when i entered the class with a loud voice " We wanna celebrate salma's b'day" then the wishes and duaa's from all the students showered me. After few minutes the secretary came with a more than 20 pepsi cans and other soda cans and asked "where's salma?" and the students pointed at me and she told me "Whishing you a very happy b'day, the doctor paid for all the soda cans for all the students in your class" At this moment i was extremely happy and really couldn't realize what was happening around me.. Is that true?!! Is it me whom they talk about?!!! Is it my birth day or someone else's?!!!.
In the break all opened the cans and started to drink it with the doctor who acted so friendly with all the students laughing and joking, that every one was surprised at the way he acted and treated us. Although i told the doctor before all that that i don't celebrate it and replied that he also never celebrated it and think that's not an islamic celebration and then he said "You're a respectable,an appreciated and a hard working person , You deserve all that and more, May God bless you and reach all your goals...." That was such an unforgotten compliment from a so respectable doctor.
I ask Allah to be always like that. After that course, i had another course in another centre which was physics, When i entered the class there was another students who surprised me when they started to sing me a happy b'day song (the physics doctor was late and there was no guys ;). When the doctor came they told him and he made duaa's for me and praised me so much. The day after, when i went to college a group of friends made me a surprise and i've been showered this time with gifts.
After attending the lectures i was surprised by another group of friends with a big red gorgeous box with gifts inside and above the gifts was a picture of us which was so sweet.
Yeah it's the first year to be gifted that number of gifts But the better than gifts is that wonderful feeling that i felt inside and truely saw it and felt it in the eyes of my friends and colleagues which is Love and that precious bless i've known i'm gaining from my doctors which is Respect and Appreciation.
These days were really such amazing and unforgotten days that i'll always keep in my heart and mind and ask Allah to perpetuate these blessings and gift those who missed them. Ameen
And i ask him the Almighty to be a better person ,a better friend and more than that, A better Muslim insha'Allah.
El hamdullelah, they weren't difficult but also not easy. The first was Chemistry (analytical chemistry and thermodynamics) , the exam was too long and 3 hours weren't enough, but I did the best i could and answered the questions as fast as i could but had no time to check and revise my answers. the 2nd was Botany (taxonomy & physiology) the taxonomy was very good and physiology was a more or less difficult and needed alot of thinking, even though i guess i did good (hopefully).The 3rd was physics(radiation ,x-rays,bio-physics and spectroscopy). The radiation, x-ray and bio-physics questions were all complete and wasn't easy yet spectroscopy was very good.
The last exam was Zoology (Genetics(1 course) and Chordate biology(3 courses)) which is a very big course that "four" doctors taught it in 1 term :S.
Well i can say that i was living like in hell the week before it, some of my friends studied only 3 courses of the four, notably that each course(section)in the exam has 50 marks.
El hamdullelah and to him is all the praise i was abled to study the 4 courses and made revision on 3 courses and a half the day before the exam and did well in the exam which was also tooo long.
Days after exams:
Exams have ended and i was ended with them, i was extremely exhausted. 2 days after, my relatives from Finland and England arrived to Egypt and we all went to a summer resort for 12 days. It was great, every day we went to the beach, Enjoy the beautiful nature, breathe pure air and had much much fun.
There's another event that i'll never forget to write about, and which's so special not for me as much as it's for my brother Ayman and his friends.... wait for it the next post insha'allah.
