OUR SINCERE ADVICE

When you have completed your application put your trust in Allah and increase in acts of worship and obedience to Him. Renew your intentions as to why you want to travel and seek knowledge; is it to make your path to Jannah easy or is it to gain some worldly pleasure? Begin seeking knowledge now by: a) memorizing the Qur'an and b) learning Arabic. These are two very important keys in seeking knowledge. If you begin now then it will allow you advance faster in your studies and allow you to take advantage of your time in Saudia.

Make supplications every day to be accepted, take advantage of the last 3rd of the night, the time between the Adhaan and Iqaamah, between the two sermons on Jumua'ah, the last hour of Jumu'ah, Laylatul Qadr, and every time when supplications are most likely accepted.

Perform good deeds only for the sake of Allah and call upon Him to grant you acceptance through these deeds. Learn the correct etiquette of making supplications, implement them and stay away from innovated affairs. Learn basic etiquette like:

- Praising Allah and sending salutations upon the Prophet (peace be upon him)
-Calling Allah by His suitable Names denoting His Generosity and ability to grant (al-Wahhab, Dhul Jalaali wal-Ikraam, al-Mannaan, etc)
-Being 100 percent certain that Allah will respond
-Not being hasty waiting for the response
-Having a present heart while supplicating
-Staying away from eating haram and earning haram wages
-Raising your hands (but not wiping yourself afterwards) and the many other etiquette of making supplications...
Refer to books and articles of scholars like Ibn Uthaymeen, Bin Baaz, Abdur-Razzaaq al-Badr, Muhammad Raslaan and other scholars upon the Sunnah.
