Human relations, interpersonal relations take up a wide field. It encompasses all of the relationships among human beings.
Islam places great emphasis on manners and on the proper way to deal with others, whether they are Muslims or not. Relations between people are very important in Islam, and maintaining good relations with others should be a main priority of a practicing Muslim. In fact, Islam teaches that Prophet Mohammad (p.b.u.h) said: “I have been sent to perfect the best of manners”. He summarized the goal of his entire message into the perfection of the best of manners. The following is just a sample of some of the teachings of Islam regarding manners and relationships with others.
Smiling: Islam even goes to the extent of rewarding Muslims for smiling in the face of others! Smiling when others look at you is regarded as a form of charity for which Muslims get rewarded. This is why Muslims usually smile and shake hands when they meet, and they hug if they have not seen one another for a long time. Muslims are also instructed to greet each other when they see each other with the best possible greeting.
Friendship: Islam takes friendship to a higher level, referring to Muslims as brothers and sisters, and expecting them to treat each other as such. A Muslim is expected to wish for others that which they wish for themselves. Also, a Muslim is expected to give honest advice to friends and to be there for them and help them whenever possible. Muslims are forbidden from abandoning or boycotting a friend with whom they have had a disagreement for more than three days. After the three days, they are expected to forgive their friend and resume the friendship.
Greeting with salaam is different from other greetings such as “good morning” or “good day.” The word salaam has a connection with faith. When we greet a person as “As-salaamu alaikum,” we tell him “May you be in paradise.” It has such an inclusive meaning: “I wish you peace and tranquility in this life. May your body be healthy and free of pains and discomfort? May Almighty Allah place you to the abode May Almighty Allah provide us with the means to adorn ourselves with the manners of the Prophet. May He keep us observant of these principles in our interactions within our family, with our relatives, with our neighbors, friends and with our brothers and sisters in Islam, in our business, and in our social life!
May He grant you His consent, happiness in this life and in the hereafter! May he place you among those whom are honored by His Beauty in His Paradise! May He reward you with the best of the rewards.
May Allah be pleased with you! Amen

“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
ءَامَنَ ٱلرَّسُولُ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡهِ مِن رَّبِّهِۦ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَۚ كُلٌّ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَتِهِۦ وَكُتُبِهِۦ وَرُسُلِهِۦ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيۡنَ أَحَدٍ۬ مِّن رُّسُلِهِۦۚ وَقَالُواْ سَمِعۡنَا وَأَطَعۡنَاۖ غُفۡرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ (٢٨٥) لَا يُكَلِّفُ ٱللَّهُ نَفۡسًا إِلَّا وُسۡعَهَاۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتۡ وَعَلَيۡہَا مَا ٱكۡتَسَبَتۡۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذۡنَآ إِن نَّسِينَآ أَوۡ أَخۡطَأۡنَاۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحۡمِلۡ عَلَيۡنَآ إِصۡرً۬ا كَمَا حَمَلۡتَهُ ۥ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِنَاۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلۡنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِۦۖ وَٱعۡفُ عَنَّا وَٱغۡفِرۡ لَنَا وَٱرۡحَمۡنَآۚ أَنتَ مَوۡلَٮٰنَا فَٱنصُرۡنَا عَلَى ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلۡڪَـٰفِرِينَ (٢٨٦)
The messenger believeth in that which hath been revealed unto him from his Lord and (so do) believers. Each one believeth in Allah and His angels and His scriptures and His messengers – We make no distinction between any of His messengers – and they say: We hear, and we obey. (Grant us) Thy forgiveness, our Lord. Unto Thee is the journeying. (285) Allah tasketh not a soul beyond its scope. For it (is only) that which it hath earned, and against it (only) that which it hath deserved. Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget, or miss the mark! Our Lord! Lay not on us such a burden as thou didst lay on those before us! Our Lord! Impose not on us that which we have not the strength to bear! Pardon us, absolve us and have mercy on us, Thou, our Protector, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk. (286)
These are the last two verses of Surah al-Baqarah. Great merits have been attributed to these two verses in authentic ahadith. The Holy Prophet Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam: Peace be upon him has said that one who recites these two verses during the night, they will be sufficient for him.
The noble Qur’an, towards the far end, teaches Muslims to make a special du’a or prayer in which forgiveness has been sought on commission of some act because of forgetfulness or neglect or mistake. It was said: Our Lord, do not hold us accountable, if we forget or make a mistake.
In short, Allah Almighty bestowed His best when He promised the acceptance of all these prayers through His Rasul (Prophet), the last among the prophets, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
Allah is most kind and merciful
Almighty Allah created man and his mind with its purpose set on achieving knowledge, the most important of which is that Allah alone is the Creator and all the rest are worshippers (slaves). By worshipping anything other than Allah, man becomes enslaved to Satan, who is himself a creature and becomes harnessed to his own bias qualities.
Prophet Idris was one of the prophets.
When Prophet Idris alaihessalam got heartbroken like all other prophets, due to non believers’ immoral activities, he left them and disappeared for almost twenty years. There was no rain for very long time. Allah punished them with drought.
When animals and people died of hunger and the life became miserable, the people asked for forgiveness. Allah being most merciful, sent back Idris to his people
Prophet Idris then begged Allah to forgive and to bring an end to drought. Allah granted his demand and the drought ended. There were heavy rains again. The land became alive and fertile once more.
The Learned Prophet
Prophet Idris alaihessalam was given wisdom in various fields of knowledge and the ability to create things that can make the human’s life easier For example, alphabets and writing, mathematics, astronomy, philosophy and etc. He was the first man who learnt to write with pen. He was the first man to show people how to measure weights and balance. He taught them about the movements of planets.
He was the first man to make weapons for hunting and defense. He also taught people to stitch clothes with needle and thread.
Consequently he brought about a remarkable change in the moral and social life of the people.
Some sayings of Hazrat Idris
- Do not feel jealous of the prosperity of others for what they have, as they will only enjoy it for a short while.
- He who has unlimited desires, is deprived of the wealth of contentment.
- One should be sincere in acts of devotion
- It is an act of serious sin to take false oaths.
- Patience is a key to victory
- He who controls his passions is fortunate. Only a good act will be a living petition before Allah on the Day of Judgment
- One who is desirous of attaining perfection in knowledge should have no concern with immoral acts.
- Happy is he who looks at his own deeds and appoints them as pleaders to his Allah
- None can show better gratitude for Allah’s favors than he who shares them with others.
- He who indulges in excess will not benefit from it.
- The real joy of life is to have wisdom
Teachers are like rulers. They place orders and wish to see their orders obeyed fully completely and without any error. (They forget that err is to human—–:)
They have all rights reserved to punish students the way they like. They can order a student to keep standing for as long as they like, or stand facing the wall, kneeling down with hands up is one of the favorite punishments of teachers. Scales are made to check the thickness of the students’ hide (teachers think students have hide not skin :)) or to measure the level of pain student can bear, so to beat softly or harshly, depending on the tolerance of the students or patience of a teacher’s own muscle.
No one can do anything or raise voice against teachers. The presidents, judges, butchers, mechanics, doctors, engineers have all been through it when they were students. That’s the reason why justice is delayed and culprits are sentenced to death, butchers make fine mince, and doctors do surgeries lovingly. They all have their treacherous teachers in mind when performing their jobs 🙂 with due apology to teachers lol
Teachers deduct or give marks while checking exam papers according to their moods. They may give marks for not attempting the question even or can deduct marks for poor handwriting. They are the kings of all students in their jurisdiction.
The most interesting thing is that teachers like to be loved and respected like faithful bondsman.
But if wishes of students ever came true, then such cruel teachers would have all die.
It is said that teachers are preachers like prophets. They teach, preach and brush up students’ character and take out the latent abilities. So I want to be a teacher like my own teachers (I hope they read this line—otherwise you know my future will be a dark one—-:)) Teaching is the profession I like most.
I want to make them good human beings, good citizens to make their country grow in all fields.
To instill the values and virtues in students’ minds is my utmost aspiration
If you can’t be a king—be a teacher as Mughal King Shahjahan asked his son to provide him a wooden rod and some students when he was imprisoned by his won son. THE SON SAID TO HIMSELF THAT KINGSHIP IS STILL THERE 🙂
After killing the camel the scoundrels decided to murder Hazrat Sualeh too. Being the messenger of Allah, Hazrat Sualeh came to know before so he said: “I dreaded of this would happen. Now you wait for the disaster. You will be destroyed in 3 days time.”
So lightening and thunder ruined the Samoodians just in one night. This disaster is example for all till the dooms day. Hazrat Sualeh and his one hundred and twenty followers who believed in Allah remained safe from the calamity. Fifteen hundred families died of the thunder and lightning.
Moral: Al-mighty Allah is the creator. All praise is to Allah. One can achieve success only if obeys Allah. Disobedience and mistrusting His messengers leads to disaster only.
