Doctor = helping others..

Everybody must have something that they're very go0d at.. Some are very go0d in cooking, studying, memorizing, playing games, designing, drawing, swimming, public speaking, martial arts, singing ect.. And some are multi-talented; very go0d in whatever field they are at..

These are of course talents that are given by Allah that should not be taken for granted.. Some might say, with great power, comes great responsibility.. Same story, the talents that are given to us are not for us to show off or to keep them to ourselves.. But come with them responsibilities.. Responsibilities to share the benefits of our talents with others, in order to make the ummah perfect..

That's why prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h. said in a hadith narrated by Abu Musa: "A faithful believer to another faithful believer is like a building whose different parts strengthen each other."

In other words, one should not hesitate to help other person who is in need in every circumstances.. Especially medical students / doctors, whose job is to help people all the time..

Surprisingly, being a doctor is not all about being intelligent and having natural aptitude and skills.. but it needs a strong willingness to help others and fulfill their needs, even though sometimes it means that we have to put aside our own needs..

So, it's obviously illogical that if a medical student is to be asked a favor, then he/she refuses saying that he/she has to study all day in order to ace all his/her exams.. Because again, being a medical doctor is not about acing your exams, but rather is about your willingness to help other people in need..
