The Value of Discipline PDF Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) E-mail

The concept of discipline is as old as a man's desire to form society. In fact, discipline is the pre-requisite of civilized life. It is indispensable to peaceful and orderly social life. Obedience to the rightful authority is essential to the proper and smooth functioning of the society.

Discipline is the base of the whole universe. The Earth, the Moon and other planets move on a set orbit around the sun. The sun rises and sets, the moon waxes and wanes, the night follows the day in due order. All these phenomena are governed by some law of nature. Because of this discipline there is perfect harmony and beauty in nature. Discipline starts from home. Discipline is the necessity of life. A man without discipline can achieve nothing worthwhile. Discipline is the very condition of progress, stability and strength. It is necessary in all walks of human life. Without discipline there will be disorders and lawlessness. In a civilized society, we can't live without having some regard for the welfare of others. Respecting the authority is the basis of discipline. Children must obey their parents. In schools and colleges, there must be discipline, otherwise education will suffer.

Simplicity of Islam! PDF Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) E-mail

I remember hearing my overjoyed little brother telling ecstatically to my mother ' let us go to heaven right now mother'. Wondering what was happening I went to enquire. I saw my mother’s smiling face hugging my brother and saying 'we have to be very nice and good to attain heaven'. She laughed as my brother went away. My mother was teaching her little son about Allah, heaven, angels; basically about Islam that probably a three year old could comprehend. She told him if he is a good, obedient boy then Allah would bless him with paradise where he would get his favorite toy or chocolate just by the thought. And pat replied her little son which made her smile at his innocence. Yes! It is we who can make our beautiful religion of Islam look beautiful or otherwise by setting examples, with our actions.

Islam propagates and teaches only about peace, love, care, kindness, mercy and the likes. As parents it is a duty of every responsible father and mother to inculcate in their children the true, real value of being a Muslim- the follower of Islam. Home should be the stepping stone of every goodness. We learn from our parents. We seek from them first and then from the rest. There is not a wealthier blessing than to be blessed by valuable faith- filled parents because we grow up seeing them and they leave them in us for us to carry on to the next generation.

Information technology: boon or bane: Islamic perspectives PDF Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) E-mail


It is the unfold truth that most of the things in this world will have two side effects, whether it is natural or man maid, but the human beings are liable to choose the best and apply it in the best way so that he can feel vital and finest outcomes, the Holy Quran says “Say I seek refuge  with the Lord of dawn from the  iniquity of all the created”(chapter:113verse :1) for example, knife is used to cut vegetables and if it used to cut man’s hand it is the evil part of the knife. 

Today, we are in the super technology era where we can’t imagine ourselves without technological advances. IT can be a boon or bane depending on the users who decide on the direction of their use. In other words, information technology is like a two edged sword that can be used for good and bad. Let us understand this concept by considering a few examples. IT has always helped in maintaining relations, infact; the major success of IT among youth is this aspect. The social networking sites like facebook, twitter, orkut, google plus, etc. has created a drastic change in the field of communication. As every coin has two sides, IT too has good as well as ill effects. The only major threat for IT is whether people consider it as a boon or bane for the society.
