Abstract

The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) had emphasized all Muslims to search knowledge event it is distance far away and to be found in a place as distant as in China. Due to the current globalisation, many Muslim students inspired and desired to study abroad, out of their home country to learn and acquire knowledge for success to ensure they can help to improve the quality life and standard of living of Muslim communities when they return into their home country. However, the problems of culture shock have become one of the major setbacks that discouraged the students from studying abroad. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the symptoms of culture shock that faced by the international students, who firstly experience living and studying abroad, the stages involved and strategies to mitigate them, and the benefits that can be obtained by the international students from the symptoms of culture shock.
