My very strong belief is that children and flowers is true reflection of almighty Allah. Both need our special care, attention and love to grow and glow to their finest.
I wrote a blog on my grand children. When they read it they felt delighted and jubilant. One of my dear students of Hamdard Public School asked me to write something about them too.
Every one who knows me know very well that I forget names but not faces. So I remember few names but remember all my dear children of Hamdard.
Namrah was one of those students whose name is fresh in my mind like always. She was in class one in 1995. She did her matric and intermediate from Hamdard.
It was her first day in Hamdard. She came quite early to school that day. I saw her sitting on the stairs eating her lunch. When asked why eating so early instead of eating during break time. Her answer was innocent like herself. She said; “teacher bhook tu abhi lagi ha” (I am feeling hungry, at the moment)
She was not only a brilliant student but actively participated in all co curricular activities throughout from primary to intermediate level winning many prizes.
She is such a devoted devotee of Hamdard that where she learnt and played for so many years as a student, is now serving Hamdard as teacher. That’s true example of respect n love for an institution like Hamdard.
Namrah my dear it’s your parents’ virtuous guidance and upbringing that you follow and remain connected with your mother institution. My heart felt regards for your parents. I am so proud of you and wish you to follow the footsteps of shaheed Hakim Said as he quoted, lamha lamha soch ker—qadam qadam tol ker—- every step we take forward we leave behind a footprint— the footprint may light up or darken the path so be very careful as you have chosen the profession of prophets and preachers.
I give this sincere friendly advice to all my children and to myself too.
