This student has fallen in love with SunniPath. Why? Here is what came straight from ones heart…
… vibrant variety of chocolates being offered… I mean courses ~ ever been put in a situation where you’re given a box of chocolates with each chocolate wrapped in different coloured foil, having to select from the pamphlet, thinking “hmm this one or no, that one, or maybe that one, or should I just have all three?”… seriously, the course catalogue is like a box of chocolates – each course being offered has a treat of it’s own unique kind.
… beautiful Habaib/Shayukh/Ustaadhas (May Allah preserve them all with His Mahabba. Allahumma Ameen) ~ they don’t just teach the knowledge but allow students to think out side the box and find ways to implement the knowledge in order to gain better insight into what is being learnt.
… sophisticated support ~ 24/7* administration shoulders to virtually lean on (*minus prayer times, office cleaning hours, time to sleep, Eid days, and celebratory events) so there’s never a need to think “kya karu?/what should I do?/¿donde esta?”.
… replace “take-out food” with “take-out SunniPath” ~ on the train; in an internet cafe, in a library, at home, at University, at work (cough: during lunch hours for us hospital workers); even if you were in a cave – wherever you are you can learn with SunniPath.
… *unique & extravagant* events ~ The Talib alHabib concert, mawlids, conferences, and Eid events – Subhan’Allah only on SunniPath!
… it’s how my Pakistani mother would say “very mod-ern, you know” ~ video enabling to see the teacher; colourful presentations to understand the material; and audio so we can hear loud and clear. Masha’Allah the software is living and breathing SunniPath.
… brownie points, silver stars and gold ribbon (well kinda) ~ assess your knowledge through quizzes or self study drills; enjoin in the interactive learning where you can ask questions on the forums or weekly live sessions; and if you ever need a one-to-one discussion to go over material then Office Hours with the teacher or teaching assistant are available.
… build yourself a house ~ for the serious (yet smiling) student there are mid-term exams and/or end of term exams to make sure one has grasped the material effectively. This in turn allows the student to progress to a higher level of learning and enrol for the next level of that course. As this pauper says “each course is a brick to add onto your house… keep gaining a brick for every course you do and eventually you’ll find your house – not just an attraction but somewhere you’d be happy to live in.”
…. it ain’t just a path but it’s a familia in the making ~ May Allah reward them all with affiya, increase them in knowledge, make them of His people and not the peoples people, shroud them in His Mahabba and Tawfeeq, and increase them in state for this life and the next. Allahumma Ameen.
