Visa Guidelines is back

Alhamdulillah, I got married to a lovely lady by the name of Sarah and we're enjoying our new phase in life since that momentous day.

And yeah, I graduated from the University of Nottingham and thus, escaping from the evil clutches of my medical school. woot2! probably needs a post on this as well but yeah, maybe later.

at the bottom of this blog, there is an article on visa guidelines for medical students graduated from UK medical schools under MARA scholarship who are planning to work as an FY1 doctor in the UK.

After all, it was my visa guidelines which i made 5 years ago that helped me to get to know a lot of people and for some, have now become my close friends. And it helped a lot of other people as well. So I hope that this guideline would ease your efforts a bit. Visa application is always confusing.

lightning

It was raining heavily on that Friday, 9th of May 2014. The sound of thunder roared through the heavens above and lightning illuminated the darkened atmosphere of Shah Alam. The time was around 5.30 pm and the lights in the house blacked out; I knew that the result was going to be released via email at 7 pm Malaysian time (12 noon in the UK). Then I remembered that my little brother Irfan was scared of lightning. When Irfan was a toddler, he would startle when he sees flashes of bright light during a heavy downpour. So I went downstairs to stay with my little brother in the dark.. at least, if he's scared, he has someone next to him.

While waiting for the rain to subside, I can't help worrying and thinking about the revelation which was about to come. The thought of facing the whole 5th Year all over again was too daunting for me to comprehend. Then I suddenly remembered a verse in the chapter, Thunder (Ar-Ra'd, 13). I decided to have a look at it when the power's back on.


It was almost 7 pm when the lights went back on. Irfan already fallen asleep next to me, oblivious towards the suddenly brightened room that we shared during the past hour or so. I went upstairs and searched for the verse that was running through my mind in that brief moment of darkness.

"He is the One who makes you see the lightening in fear and hope, and who forms the heavy clouds"
(Ar-Ra'd, 13:12)

I believe that Allah wants me to learn about being fearful and hopeful not just on that day, but throughout the weeks leading up to my 2nd chances in April. I learned about them in the rain..in the very definition of the words insecurity and desperation...
