Weekend @ Sheffield [Contest ]


Title: Unity through Sportsmanship

This entry is for weekend @ sheffield contest. To understand the better of it, you might want to refresh some memories back during your high school years or now if you are still a student. 
Have you ever had difficulties getting along with your seniors/juniors in your school? I think we all do. If not all, some of us might have had the problem. Sometimes, this kind of bond between boys is not just to protect themselves from being bullied or anything (some people tend to bully people outside their pack). It is to capture the heart of others to spread the word of truth about Islam and it is called ukhuwwah between our Muslims brothers.

During my time, there was this one boy who was very passionate in everything he does. I was a prefect just like him and sometimes getting along with everybody is impossible for a prefect, even among the students body. So, I will just do my job and ignoring all grumbles and hatred from others.

But, this boy is different. He wanted everyone to believe in him, to be their friend. What he did was that he will look for the interest of a person and from that, he will capture their heart and make them to trust him. And of course, for us, boys, our common interest will be sports. So, he will join all kinds of sports just to strengthen the ukhuwwah among students and to say that it is okay to trust him, and also to trust others. Until he graduated from the school, and even after that, he was like a legend, loved and respected by others.

Now, if I want to get along with anyone, I’ll apply the same technique and surprisingly it works!

Here in IIU, I manage to befriend with a guy from Madagascar (he already went home for some reasons) and some guys from Comoros Island, after I joined the Varsity Volleyball team,


Some Nepalese from playing volleyball at the USIM apartment, which I forgot to take pictures with, and friends from other universities as well, from a futsal friendly,


And some Japanese and Thais, Chinese and Indonesian, from Futsal



Conclusion

Sports games do promote unity. As long as the rules are followed and the intention is clear. Why don’t you guys also give it a try and see the results. Perhaps a futsal tournament between bloggers. At least, if you don’t get friends, you will get a healthy body, insya Allah. After all, Allah loves strong healthy Muslims rather than weak Muslims and Rasulullah also encourages us to stay healthy by learning to ride horses, archery, and swimming.
