Assalamualaikum Warrahmatullahi Wabarakatuh!

Good day, everyone! I am very grateful and happy because I have got a chance for telling my experience when I was attending KPA (Religious Education Class) this year!

قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم:كُنْ عَالِمًا اَوْ مُتَعَلِّمًا اَوْ مُسْتَمِعًا اَوْ مُحِبًا وَلَا تَكُنْ خَامِسًا فَتُهْلِكَ (رَوَاهُ الْبَيْهَقِ )

Rasulullah SAW said, “Be a knowledgeable person or someone who keeps learns, or someone who seeks for knowledges and someone who loves to learns. And do not be the fifth, or you will be harmed.” (HR. Baihaqi)

According to the hadith, Rasulullah (pbuh) has told us for seeking knowledges as many as we can. That’s why we should attending KPA. Not only get knowledge, we can also get lots of friends there!And if you think KPA is boring, you are 100% wrong! We can play a lot of games too! Trust me, you’ll never regret that you ever came to KPA!

Now then, I’d love to tell you about my KPA experience!  I attended KPA at Mubarak Mosque, Tambun for five days. But sadly, I was on my period so I was not able to follow congregation prayers. However, I really enjoyed my KPA 2019!

On the first day, I already talked to my new friends in my Hizeb (group). Oh, I was in Hizeb 3 anyway. My Hizeb’s place was so nice and comfy! It was at Mubaligh’s wife place. Our Mentors were very nice too!After I arranged my bags and stuff, I attended the opening ceremony in the mosque. Day one was really fast!

On the second day, we had class! Finally, I made friends again. We joked and talked before our class started. I was at class B because I am still a student of Junior High School. We learned five subjects, Al Qur’an, Tahrik Jadid, Shalat, Morals, and Knowledge about Ahmadiyya.

We had classes only in two days. Our teachers were Mubalighs, and it was an honor for me being taught by them!

Besides the classes, we played lots of games! I lost one game, and I was so ashamed at first, but fortunately I didn’t get any punishment, hehe! The games successfully made us laugh happily and I enjoyed themall. It was so great!

We did sports every morning too, the sports were like games, we competed again! My Hizeb lost, but it was not a big deal! Because my body was so fresh and clean! This is the important thing, right?

Oh! We also had a general subject class about Wudhu and Gadget! My mom taught the gadget one. She was very cool, I am so proud of her. Anyway, I loved when the general classes started, because we studied together in the mosque!

On the third day, we had exams! The night before exams I literally studied so fast because I was sleepy. But, Alhamdulillah finally I could pass the exams easily. After doing exams, we had snacks. By the way, the snacks and food were delicious! And in the night before the last day, there was evening session attended by Sadr of Lajnah Imaillah Indonesia. But sadly, I went home for some reasons.

And on the last day, I don’t know how to express my feelings, because we had so much fun for playing Outbond with our Hizeb, but I was also sad because KPA was about completed and I would miss this moment. Oh, we also got our exam results! My friend of my Hizeb was a champion and the other one too, she won speech contest. I am so proud of her! We got a lot of snacks and shook hands with each other. It was an unforgettable moment ever. After closing ceremony, I took some photos with my friends❤ I came back home with a smile on my face!

That’s all about the experience of mine! Ibeen a week since KPA ended, I miss my friends and all things of KPA! My message is I wish to see you again in the next KPA. Jazakumullah for reading my great experience on holiday. See you next KPA. May Allah bless us. Ameen. Wassalamualaikum Warrahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
