Today is a sad day for me and, I am sure, for hundreds and thousands of people around the world. Today, as I found out, my beloved professor Muhammad Arif Zakaullah passed away. He was more than a professor to all of us. More to me than anyone else, I guess. In fact, he was a professor to me the least. Rather, he was a father, a friend, a companion, a fellow colleague, a family member... in short, he was everything a person may want from another person. He was an inspiration, a model and a teacher to me.
I had a pleasure to go through various education cycles and meet a lot of teachers, scholars and professors. I went to a Madrasah, an Islamic high school here in Bosnia and then I went to Malaysia. It was there where I met this "angel". It is sad, but it is true that none of my professors or teachers from my high school can even come close to what he meant to me. He is one of two persons (the other one is prof. Dr. Abbas Mirakhor - still alive alhamdulillah) who taught me, guided me and supported me. They believed in me even when I doubted myself. They are exemplary to me and I hope that one day I will be at least partially as good to others as they were to me and other fellow students and colleagues. I wish that other professors may have known them truly to see what kind of professors they should be. Many times these kind of peoples are marginalized and least appreciated at the universities and elsewhere.
Prof. Dr. Muhammad Arif was an angel to me, and I will cherish his memories for the rest of my life. He won't be forgotten. Not by me. Not by many others who met and worked with him. I had a pleasure to be his assistant and to work with him. I miss those times, endless hours working with him. Discussions about all current affairs.
May Allah s.w.t. bless his soul and grant him Jannah al-Firdaws for he deserves it. I wish his family patience and may they find a peace in all prayers from his students and families around the world who loved him and remember him.
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un!!! #muhammadarifzakaullah#friend#professor#teacher#father#rolemodel#may#Allah#bless#you
At #naisa2017 Indigenous scholars Eve Tuck, Daniel Voth, Robert Alexander Innes, and I had the absolute pleasure of sharing our university experiences--as both students and now professors--to help guide Aboriginal undergrads in planning their transitions to grad school. The students fueled our discussion with very thoughtful and forward thinking questions! It was great to see. Wishing them the best on their educational journeys. Nt'oyaxsism to UBC's Aboriginal Student Affairs and NAISA for organizing this important mentorship panel. #naisa2017#indigenous#firstnations#métis#alaskanative#scholars#professor#student#mentorship#payingitforward
Time is the indefinite continuedprogress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversiblesuccession from the past through thepresent to the future. Time is a component quantity of variousmeasurements used to sequenceevents, to compare the duration of events or the intervals between them, and to quantify rates of change ofquantities in material reality or in theconscious experience.Time is often referred to as the fourth dimension, along with the three spatialdimensions.
Time has long been an important subject of study in religion, philosophy, and science, but defining it in a manner applicable to all fields without circularityhas consistently eluded scholars.Nevertheless, diverse fields such as business,industry, sports, the sciences, and theperforming arts all incorporate some notion of time into their respectivemeasuring systems.Two contrasting viewpoints on time divide prominent philosophers. One view is that time is part of the fundamental structure of the universe—a dimensionindependent of events, in which events occur in sequence. Isaac Newtonsubscribed to this realist view, and hence it is sometimes referred to asNewtonian time.The opposing view is that time does not refer to any kind of "container" that events and objects "move through", nor to any entity that "flows", but that it is instead part of a fundamental intellectual structure (together with space and number) within which humans sequence and compare events. This second view, in the tradition of Gottfried Leibniz and Immanuel Kant,holds that time is neither an event nor a thing, and thus is not itself measurable nor can it be travelled.
Time in physics is unambiguously operationally defined as "what a clockreads".Time is one of the seven fundamental physical quantities in both the International System of Units andInternational System of Quantities. Time is used to define other quantities—such as velocity—so defining time in terms of such quantities would result in circularity of definition.Anoperational definition of time, wherein one says that observing a certain number of repetitions.
It meant the world to me that my students from when I was teaching in FNIS at UBC came to hear me speak on a NAISA panel advising undergrads on their transition to grad school ❤️Adziksa godu Adina ada Danielle!! I'm so proud of you two. Any university would be fortunate to have you and your scholarship in their MA and PhD programs. You both give me even more hope for the future of our field! Sa aamł waan! Keep up the good work!! #proudprofessor#amazingstudents#firstnations#indigenous#ubc#fnis#naisa2017#drdangeli#tsimshian#professor
