RIFT VALLEY INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS STUDIES.
“Fundamental foundation, Development, growth or new invention For any community, state or nation, it is essential to get good education.” Education is one of the most important necessities of our life. A man is incomplete without it. Education teaches us how to think, how to work properly, how to make decision; in short it tells us how to lead a successful and meaningful life. With the beam of education one can easily distinguish between correct and incorrect; true and falls and more over between humanity and brutality. For me education doesn’t mean to have only degrees from university with bookish knowledge; but education means to have practical knowledge with one’s own sense of sensibilities. Its only education awakens you from the slumber of ignorant. It gives us that light which makes us capable of seeing the things back the curtain. As far as I believe, every individual has been bestowed with at least one such quality or talent by the Almighty Allah that makes him or her different from other individual. And this innate individuality can be identified only by means of education. It makes you acquaintance with yourself. Its only education that gives us an identity in the society. It actually makes us “alive”. No doubt a society is a place where every kind of creatures live together but the difference between educated and uneducated can be easily identified. I truly agree with the saying of Aristotle that:
“The educated differs from the uneducated as much as the living differs from the dead.” Really, an uneducated person is almost equal to a dead as we cannot expect a good support or any kind of contribution towards development from him. And for me the best example of this is the present scenario of our beautiful world where everywhere non-violence has acquired its place. We cannot expect destruction from any educated person or nation. As we know that poverty is the biggest enemy of all human beings. We must not forget the fact that its illiteracy that drags man towards poverty and poverty towards destruction. An illiterate person cannot think to compete with an educated person. Even if he is full of talent he is never provided the privilege to show his talent. Thus to fight with poverty the only option is to get higher and meaningful education because education teaches us to handle any kind of situation smartly and successfully. Its not wrong when Mahatma Gandhi says: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow Learn as if you were to live forever.” Now the question arises that what kind of education should be given to our children that make him or her a perfect human being? The answer is very simple. At first it must be an Islamic education with all the doings and practices of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). No one in this world can be the best epitome of an educated person as he is. Besides, we must not forget the saying of Prophet Muhammad himself that “for education if you need to go to China then go”. It means that he is saying us not to keep worldly education too aside. Worldly education is equally important as without it we can never pace with time and if we can’t pace with time then we can’t hope to move ahead and get success. And if we are not successful then nobody would give us respect and dignity upon which our right lies. Without education we can’t imagine respect in our society. The biggest problem is that the importance of education is understood and realized after a certain age. For children education is punishment. Not only for children, but the youths also often misunderstood education only to the extent to pass university exams which is absolutely dangerous for any society, community or nation. As we often say that children are the future of every country then of course it’s our responsibility to make children aware of the importance of education in a true ways. Education should help us to discover lasting values; unfortunately, the present system of education is making us submissive, emotionless and deeply thoughtless. The environment of every school and college should be light and full of entertainment so that they can learn with fun and don’t take it as punishment imposed by their parents on them. Different kinds of competitions, quizzes and sports must be introduced in schools and colleges. Apart from it every student should be inculcated with certain goals of life not only by their parents but by their teachers as well. If a child or youth goes to school or college without any goal of life then he actually doesn’t gain education but only degree that may give him success to certain extent and stage of life but cannot make him a good human being. And for me: “Education is the foremost thing require, Because without it only defeats are acquired.” Now after awakening the kid or the youth and after showing him the light of education with it’s importance in our life the next responsibility falls on the shoulder of teachers who can actually convince students what exactly education is. In my opinion teacher’s behavior with students should not be like so called teachers but like an awakener who is there to solve all problems of students and make them out of the darkness of ignorant and uneducated life. Teachers play a very important role in students’ life. As many of them become their role models, so they must be very careful about their own behaviors, presentations and over all performances. Besides, giving lecture on prescribed topics they must keep on convincing them to study well and remind them their goal of life. Their responsibility should be more than giving lectures in a given period of time. They should be friendly and understanding so that without any reluctance students can communicate their problems with them. Now the other question is should girls too equally be educated like boys? Then of course the answer is yes, yes and yes. There is a very good saying that: “If you educate a man; you educate a man. But if you educate a woman; you educate a generation.” As we all know that the first school or the first teacher of any child is his or her mother and if a mother is living her life in the darkness of ignorance then how can she usher her child the light of education. As far as my opinion is concerned educating a woman is as important as oxygen to our life. A woman is truly responsible for a perfect family, society or nation and with an uneducated woman we just can’t expect all these to be perfect. This is the reason that now a days every where the education of women has been emphasized. Towards conclusion I must say one thing that if you really want to know that what the purpose of your existence in this world and why the Almighty Allah has sent you here then you must grab education. It is the only way to know not only yourself but also Allah. Thus I’ll conclude by saying: “Let’s break the monotony Let’s set the economy Let’s all of us give call Education for all….”
