The person that I look up to is one of the best motivator is Tuan Guru Dato’ Bentara Setia Haji Nik Abdul Aziz bin Nik Mat. He was the Menteri Besar of Kelantan from 1990 to 2013 and the Mursyidul Am or Spiritual Leader of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) from 1991 until his death in 2015. Overall, his career as an elected politician lasted for some 48 years following his election to the Parliament of Malaysia in 1967.Tuan Guru Haji Nik Abdul Aziz was born in Kampung Pulau Melaka, Kelantan in 10 January 1931 and Tuan Guru was the second of five siblings. He was raised by a single fatherHaji Nik Mat bin Raja Banjar bin Raja Abdullah bin Raja Mamat. Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz's Islamic studies began in pondok schools in Kelantan and Terengganu. He went on to study at Darul Uloom Deoband in Uttar Pradesh, India for five years. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Arabic Studies and Master of Arts in Islamic Jurisprudence from Al-Azhar University, Egypt. During his university studies, he was one of the witnesses and a civilian to have lived in the heat of the Arab-Israeli Conflict.
