Graduating Student Spotlight: Rima Talib

A Dream Come True

My name is Rima Talib, and I am extremely grateful to say that Alhamdulillah, Allah (SWT) has blessed me to recently graduate from Guidance College. I was able to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Islamic Studies, and I could not have achieved this life-changing accomplishment without the Tawfeeq from Allah (SWT) and the help of our dedicated faculty at Guidance College. Our amazing professors have diligently structured their classes in such a way that I was able to optimize the useful knowledge I gained. I have been able to take the information provided to me and implement it into my life to live the true Islamic way that Allah (SWT) intended for us to live.

My experience at Guidance College can be summed up in one word: incredible. Guidance College has given me countless opportunities to improve my skills in the field of my choice, and it has also allowed me to gain endless knowledge about my Deen to strengthen my relationship with Allah (swt). The variety of religious classes I was able to take has enriched my life in many ways. These classes have provided me with the necessary tools I need to enhance my understanding of the things I consider to be crucial in life. In addition, they have also allowed me to build important skills in my ability to critically think and ask questions in many situations, especially in the Fiqh classes.

It is an honor to be a graduate of Guidance College, and I will continue to appreciate the time I spent here. I would like to express my gratitude to all the faculty for their professional communication throughout my years of study. May Allah (SWT) reward them all immensely in this Dunia and Hereafter.

Jazakum Allah Khairan
