Getting Nervous

I'm getting a bit nervous now. I've signed up for another intensive course! Thanks to Saira from Italy, I will be taking the Taleem Al Quran evening courses. I am excited but also a bit nervous about the work load.

Wed 5:30-9:30 - Taleem Al Quran
Thurs 5:30-9:30 - Taleem Al Quran
Fri 6:30-8:30 - Tajweed in Hartford
Sat 1:00 - 3:00 - Al Baseerah course
Sun 12:30-1:30 - 40 Ahadeeth class

About a month ago I was getting that itch to start studying seriously. I wanted to increase my knowledge of Islam, but could not find a source that fit my budget. Alhamdulillah all of these new opportunities to learn have come my way, and I think I can manage the cost as well.

Its been over two years since I reverted, and since then I've never stopped wanting to learn about Islam. I've always got 2 or 3 Islamic books going at once. I skip back and forth between them so I can absorb the most information. Its something I never tire of. Mind you I was not like this before, there was nothing that ever captured my heart and mind like this.

So as I get ready to start this intense workload, I am nervous, but mostly I'm just really excited to be learning more about my deen.

Masha'allah, No need for the nervousness LOL! Insha'allah you do great and increase your knowledge.

Salaam sis,

MaashaaAllaah, it's so great you can really pursue knowledge at such a schedule. InshaaAllaah when I finish my degree I can as well--I'm so sick of engineering I would vomit up all I've learned if only I could replace it with knowledge of Islam.
