Remember the example of children and parent relationship shall be like the joy of sighting the Eid moon. Just as a child in boarding school is eager to meet their parents during his upcoming leave, so is the parent waiting to meet you as well with equal joy. You are like the Eid crescent for each other. In other words, you and your love for parents should their like their eid.
FAME & SCHOLARSHIP
We all wish for our beloved teachers to be renowned and reputed by as many people in the world. However, remember that we are blessed to be their students only because they are able to give us their time and affection. If they get preoccupied with the masses, we may miss their company. Fame is not a sign of scholarship.
SUNNA MOISTENS HEARTS
We also have to remember that following the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet will evoke his thoughts and love within us. Today we are leading a dry and mechanical sleep-walking life with no consciousness of our actions. Only Sunnah of Prophet can moisten our dry hearts hungry for a life connected to rain and trees. Tomorrow when you are grown-ups, your childhood memories should be beyond just video games and tablets.
LIFE IS LIKE A BUS STOP
Moral knowledge alone can help us to read the signboards we may come across in life. There are routes leading to all sorts of directions. Life is like a bus top. You should be able to choose between good and bad routes with the help of righteous knowledge.
NOT EARLY. NOT LATE
Everything in life happens on time as per decree of Allah. Early or late happening is only as per our perception. Therefore, never be at haste for success in life.
