Perkembangan politik semasa dalam negara memerlukan wacana ilmiah yang objektif dan bebas dalam mencari formula penyelesaian hakiki. Adalah diyakini bahawa jalan keluar kepada kemelut politik, ekonomi dan sosial pastinya kembali ke pangkuan ajaran Islam dan akar budaya bangsa.
Bagi merealisasikan hasrat ini, suatu manhaj (sistem) perubahan Islam yang menyeluruh perlu diketengahkan ke dalam masyarakat dan pendekatan yang dibawa oleh mujaddid (tokoh pembaharuan) al-Syahid Hassan al-Banna adalah pilihan terbaik.
Justeru, Konvensyen Pemikiran Hassan al-Banna Dalam Melakar Agenda Bangsa akan mengetengahkan manhaj dan perjuangan Hassan al-Banna, agar ia lebih difahami dan dapat dicontohi oleh masyarakat Malaysia.
TARIKH: 30 JANUARI 2010
TEMPAT: DEWAN SRI SARJANA, UNIVERSITI TENAGA NASIONAL (UNITEN), KAMPUS PUTRAJAYA

Ludwig Wittgenstein, having abandoned academia for three years in order to construct a house for his sister Gretl in Vienna, understood the magnitude of the challenge.
“You think philosophy is difficult,” observed the author of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus,
“but I tell you, it is nothing compared to the difficulty of being a good architect.”
excerpt from Alain de Botton's "Architecture of Happiness"
Yeah. I would have to admit that. It is HARD to get a resolved design solution.
During a session with a few architecture juniors during Ausmat Career Day, they kept on asking questions regarding the life as an architecture student. Unlike other groups; who asked a lot about life in overseas in general. It seems that they are more worried about coping up in architectural studies, rather than settling down in overseas. Or maybe I was wrong. But if its true, it is totally understandable. Throughout their whole 1 and a half year in Ausmat, they were not exposed to a single subject that has got relevance to architecture subjects (maybe a bit in Physics).
Acting cool (as an overseas senior, just graduated first degree some more), I kept on saying that architecture is a difficult course, but is also an interesting one. Although we'd feel stressed out most of the time, we would still enjoy doing work in the end because deep inside, we love architecture.
Thing is, nothing comes easy nowadays. But no worries. All we need is a right system, an undivided faith and perseverance and lastly, the right person to be our guide/precedent/mentor/teacher.
ps: Benda yang sama juga dengan gagasan kita. Ya ikhwan, boleh rujuk kepada MR, di penghujung bab pertama.
