It was September 1965. I had cleared my 10th grade with flying colors. We lived in Peshawar then. Our house was so big that if one called from end the voice could not be heard. The house was in the middle and lawns and fields surrounding it. It was built of mud. Walls were as thick as one meter if I’m not wrong. The rooms were huge with high ceilings. The doors were as big and wide that elephant could easily pass. The ventilator in every room was so big that two men could easily sit there.

I’m not at all exaggerating. It is said that Prime Minister of India Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru also lived there before partition of India, Pakistan. My brother had bought that house. And after he sold it the Excavators found many items of ancient time. Peshawar is one of the oldest cities of the world.

My brother was in Air Force. His family was in Karachi then. I lived there with my mother.

The war was going on between born rivals, India and Pakistan. Lahore was most raided city. So a family of 11 members came to Peshawar to run away from death. They had come to stay with their relatives. That bungalow was as big as ours, just across the road. Two families lived in that house. One was Air Force officer Squadron Leader, Musa and his family and the civilian family.

One day my brother called me from Rawal Pindi as he was on war duty. He asked me to come immediately there with mother. We did the same. My brother always said that in war, dusk and dawn time and full moon night is best to raid and bombard. It was full moon that night.

The airport was not far from our house. We lived on Mall Road. India bombed the airport but missed its target so the bomb hit that house where the family had come all the way from Lahore to escape death.

All members of that house died except one mentally retarded brother of theirs. But surprisingly everything was saved like furniture and all household things. But Musa’s family survived as they ran to trenches hearing the alarming siren. Surprisingly every bit of their household broke smashed and finished, but their lives were safe. As they ran without slippers and in their sleeping dresses so the neighbors provided them with everything. But the unfortunate family couldn’t save their life from death.

One should not fear death. It is fact of life and every breathing soul has to pass away

When we pray,

Allah hears more than we say,

in His own time and in His own way

My uncle was on a flight from Paris to New York in 1997. When he took his seat in the aircraft a French lady with her three or four year old daughter came and sat on the seat next to his. As there are only three seats, the mother sat on one, the daughter next to my uncle’s.

After a while an airhostess served food. The French lady taking the tray from the air hostess began feeding her daughter and at the same time partaking from it herself.  She put a morsel in her daughter’s mouth and after she had eaten it, the lady said, ‘Say thank you,’ she then put another spoonful of rice and made her say, ‘thank you’ again. According to my uncle the lady made her daughter say the word ‘Thank you’ thirty six 36 times during the course of the meal.

He observed this with amazement that this habit of showing gratitude would surely become part of her daughter’s character and she will be thankful to everyone for the rest of her life.

Moral; we should teach our children these good habits from childhood to be grateful for anything they are blessed with

“I am the seed of all existence. There is no being, moving or still, that exists without Me”

The world is like a beautiful painting or a musical symphony. We might know how the colors are mixed on the canvas or how the musical instruments are played in the orchestra, but that does not help us to appreciate the beauty of the picture or the music that is produced, or the inner meaning which the artist or composer has given it.  All of life, from the universe itself down to the individual trees and seeds and the very earth is full of the divine purpose of God, the artist and creator behind it.

The best teacher of teachers is but Allah.  He taught names of all that exists to Hazrat Adam. Then Adam passed his knowledge to others.

To spread knowledge and for character building, prophets were sent. Some Prophets were given some scriptures to educate people to believe in oneness of Allah to behave modestly and to create a peaceful environment.

Every prophet was associated with a tree. Trees are used for meditation and spiritual empowerment. The Prophets and saints under the trees and enlightened the folk. A sahabi tree is still there. A documentary was made on it too. It stand in the desert alone providing peace to the travelers. It was planted by the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (p.b.u.h).

  It is interesting to learn that tree is a symbol of a teacher. Like a tree provides shade, fruits, wood, in short every part of a tree is for the benefit. So is a teacher. Nothing can be learnt without a teacher. Books are tools not teacher. Trees not only cater human beings but animals and other plants too. They play a great role in spreading beauty harmony and peace in the world. They clean the air and the atmosphere. A banyan tree is the best example of spreading beauty, shade and shelter for existence.

There’s a Shanti Nagar university in Bangladesh. Students learn music and arts in the shades on the trees. As a tree gives soothing affect to eyes and serenity to heart, so does a teacher to human mind and soul.

Some of the humane teachers have taken the responsibility of promoting peace in their city and plan to expand and spread it worldwide. Teach for Peace is their motto.

Hence the conclusion is that teachers along with other like mind people can bring peace making the planet earth a beautiful place live and cherish

“Accept the children the way we accept trees—with gratitude, because they are a blessing—but do not have expectations or desires. You don’t expect trees to change; you love them as they are.”
― Isabel Allende
