“Let us eat some fruits!”
Kids: “No,not now. I am playing. I don’t want to eat anything now.”
Elderly: “No,my stomach is full. I cannot eat so much ! Later I will eat.”
Me: “Okay !”
To Kids: “Will you play that game with me ? How about doing craft this week? What do you want to do ?”
(Takes the fruit from my hand or I put it in their mouth and they start thinking. Waits to finish it and excited to talk.)
To Elderly: “Please tell me more about when you were young. How our family was and what you all did ?”
(Takes the fruit from my hand or I put it in their mouth and they start thinking. Waits to finish and excited to share !)
Oh I love the Kids !
Oh I love the Elderly !
The Joy and Blessing of Being Young, of Interacting with both Age Groups , of Learning from both ! Love it !

“And I have seen sincere Muslim youth who studied at colleges of medicine, engineering, agriculture, or literature, or at other liberal arts and scientific colleges, and who were doing well and even very well, but then left to dedicate themselves to the work ofdawah[callingpeople to Islam] and guiding others, even though their work in their specialties are of the fardh al-kifayah [jobs that are obligatory on a certain percentage of every Muslim community according to Islamic law, for example every Muslim community should have enough physicians, engineers, etc.], jobs that if not done the entire community is harmed, even though they can make of their specialties an`ibadah(good deed) and jihad if done properly, with the right intent, and with regard to Allah’s laws.
And if every Muslim left his or her job today then what would happen to Muslim interests?
The Prophet pbuh was sent when his Companions worked at various occupations, and he never asked anyone of them to leave his job to dedicate himself to dawah.”
So my dear brothers and sisters,
Study the Sciences,Medicine,Engineering,History,Geography,Languages,Psychology and others and figure out how you can merge them with islamic knowledge to serve Allah’s Deen and to help the Ummah.
Make it a dawah opportunity.
(I will soon share an article explaining that,in sha Allah)
Gaining knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing.
Growing happens when what you know changes how you live and impacts on the lives of others..
When you start thinking,behaving,acting differently and in a better way.
When you begin to understand that people will make mistakes and so do we..when we become gentle,compassionate,humble and generous towards all creatures.
May Allah make us of those who gain knowledge to Please Allah and not for any other reason.May Allah make us people of action.Aameen.
