The Most Memorable Day of my Life
Written by Muqaddas Ali, Karachi
The memorable day of my life in class 9 and I think that that day will be memorable for my entire class!!
Chemistry is so boring. I am always bored in the Chemistry period. The lecture on atoms, particles and elements makes me so sleepy. I am always yawning and feel so drowsy … not just me but my whole class does so except some of the genius students! The ‘Suqrat’ and the ‘Buqrat’ as we call them. Those geniuses include Mafaza (my best friend), Warda (the emotional ‘boy’ of our class), Hareem and some of the others, but only some!
Now I am going to tell you the story of one of the period of Chemistry when I was in Class IX.
Mafaza and I were sitting on the same bench in the class. The Chemistry teacher entered the class room.
“Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh, teacher!”
“Walaikum Assalam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh! We are going to do chemical equations today. Open your registers, please.”
“Oh ... so boring,” Mafaza whispered. I gave her a ferocious look. “Mafaza! please give me that …” I left the sentence incomplete as the Chem. teacher passed by our seat.
“Thanks.” Mafaza thanked me for changing the subject or else the teacher would have heard her remark. “Please be quiet now,” I requested her.
Ok now read what happened next.
Our teacher asked Yusra (sitting on the first bench), “Come and solve this equation on the board.”
My heart began to beat really fast. I thought it would be my turn soon and I knew nothing. I will surely die today if she calls me. There are 28 students in our class but my turn could come any time. Oh, what will I do?
“Ok next. Yumna come to the blackboard.”
Oh my God that means Yusra, Yumna, Ayesha, Masfa, Mafaza, and then……..ME??
One by one!!!
Allah please help me, please!!!
“If you do not want to appear in the examination then please stay at home,”
She was telling Yumna sarcastically. But no, her remark was for all of us.
The whole class was silent even the naughtiest girl … every one became quiet. “Go back to your seat.” She ordered poor Yumna.
“Ayesha and Masfa, will both of you come here?” Both of them went up there but came back soon with beautiful remarks from the teacher.
Allah please you are Raheem, you are Kareem, please have mercy on me.
“Who’s next?” she raised her eyebrows. Mafaza karma?”
My heart started beating faster and faster. I was trembling, even my teeth were chattering.
Ya Allaaah, please, please, please!!!!
You are there, when no one else is
You are near when no one else is
Mafaza went and came back with ironic remarks like, “Why are you wasting your parent’s money?”
Mafaza was almost in tears, so was I. She is the smartest student in my class ... the position holder, the math master … but Chemistry?
Now it was my turn!! I nearly stopped breathing.
I was reciting the du’a: Ya Hayyu ya qayyumo bi rehmatika astaghees with my eyes closed.
Then wonder of wonders! Instead of calling my name she called Alina’s who was sitting right behind me. I was dumbstruck … absolutely astonished.
Ya Allah is it really true or am I dreaming?
My frozen hands started to melt, my trembling body was now at rest.
It was then Nida’s turn and so on but not mine.
The bell rang and the period was over!
I thanked Allah, my heart was filled with the greatness of His mercy. He is great undoubtedly!!
A single period of Chemistry taught me that.

The Most Memorable Day of my Life
The most memorable day of my life was, September 4, 1995 in Chicago, IL. It was 6:00 a.m. when my alarm clock woke me up. The first day of high school was finally here. I was excited, but a lot more nervous. I got out of bed, got ready, and then was on my way to the bus stop. All I could think of is the stories I heard about high school being so horrible with all the mean teachers, the hard tests, and of course being a freshman does not help either. The bus ride to the school was only 30 minutes, but it seemed a lot longer. When we finally got there, I was more nervous than ever. The day ahead of me was about to get a lot more…show more content…
Their names were Susan and Alicia. I called them over and I talked with Susan and Alicia. That is when I introduced myself, then they did the same and we began to know more about each other, Susan and Alicia asked me where I was from and I said, “I am from Puerto Rico.” Then I asked Susan and Alicia where they were from and Susan said, “She was from New York” and Alicia said, “She was from Indiana”. After that, we spent the rest of the day together until the class was over. I will always remember that day because I had a chance to meet new friends. In addition, I met the most important friends that I have ever had.
As the school year progressed, I made many more friends that are new and even joined a club. This club was just for members of the football team, the student staff, and the cheerleaders. My friends and I became members because we were the team equipment managers. The name of our club was the dog pound. We had t-shirts and worked all the school events when the football team was involved, such as the home coming game and pep rallies, we had fun all year long. My friends and I were even members of the food service program. We cooked and served meals for different events and for different people in the school all year long. We also had cooking competitions were we won different types of awards and sometimes we were offered scholarships to different cooking schools. My friend Asia and I also joined the JROTC class where we were
