Eid Melad-un-Nabbi

Eid Melad-un-Nabbi used to be celebrated quite religiously. This year I had to travel back to Lahore because my wife had a duty in her hospital; we had to face a gathering and it became troublesome to reach her workplace and then home. The policeman there made a statement that even it’s a religious gathering but if you want that no one break your car windows I better should adopt an alternative route. There is so much aggression in our society that such occasions bring fear; though religiously this day is celebrated that Rehmatalal Alameen (PBUH) came to this world.

In our childhood, I remember when my dad used to pick us from school; sometimes when he had some work on our way back to home; he used to park the car leaving us in the car with no fear. But now; when I pick up my son and have some work; I either have to take him along or drop him first at home. Similarly on the roadside if we see someone in trouble, like tire puncture or something wrong with the engine; we prefer continue driving. On the whole, with increasing materialism and fear in society; our moral values are deteriorating.

This is not our destination. Our vision should be to make life better for people in the community and to make the quality of the countryside better for everyone. And I don't know if we're going to find out the right way. The future is in GOD hands. May he help us to be holy and faithful.
