Do you love what you are studying in university?
These are 4 possible signs that you love what you study. If you have these signs, congrats!
#1 I keep thinking about it.
I studied Psychology in university, and I love it! Just like 2 people in love, you can’t stop thinking about it. I don’t just think about Psychology when I’m in class and when class is over, that’s it. I think about it a lot in my daily life.
#2 I see real life connections.
I made connections between what I learned in class with what I experience in life. Not only do I make connections between what I learned with my life, I also make connections with Islam.
Time and time again, I realized that the things that I learned in Psychology are the things that are already there in the Sunna of Prophet Muhammad SAW. I don’t “Islamicize” what I learned. I don’t have to. Rather, I find Islam in what I learned.
I believe that Islam is already there. One just needs the proper lens to find it. Is it not true that between the heavens and the earth, Allah has placed His Signs for the believers and for those who reflect?
This is the icing of the cake. This is what makes my studies meaningful.
#3 I want to tell people about it.
If you have a great news, then you want to share it with people, at least with your best friend. That is the feeling that I have at times when I learn things in Psychology. I have an urge to tell people about it because it is so amazing (to me at least).
#4 I want to benefit people with it.
There are many things that I can do with the knowledge and understanding that I gained from Psychology and, especially in my community, I can see that there is a need for it. Unfortunately, not a lot of people are fulfilling that need and I want to be one of those people who steps up and serves the community in this area.
