She replied to the question in a very comprehensive way. She said what she has achieved so far or how she manages everything is just because of the blessed company of Shaykh-ul-Islam, his immense Dua’a for her and then her own hardwork. She emphasized that every student must make a yearly, monthly, weekly and daily schedule in order to focus on each and every task she/he has to tackle and to ultimately become successful.
In an answer to a question as to the purpose of education, Dr. Ghazala said that one’s purpose should be to be pleased Allah Almight through whatever field or subject one has chosen. What really matters is that how one utilizes one’s study and how one serves the humanity and becomes closer to Allah.
Dr. Ghazala emphasized that a student must be punctual in timings. There must be a motivation that leads you towards your goal, then you will become organized because you will have a purpose to pursue and only if you are passionate about it.
A student raised a very important question as to how we can focus on an aim when there are a lot of temptations around us in our personal life and in institutions.
Dr. Ghazala answered by saying that yes university life is very difficult and there are a lot of temptations but always remember that Allah is watching you all the time and all that you are doing, you will have to answer to Him on the final day.
