For long ago now, the entire Arabian and Eastern community been pushed ahead into COMPETITION and UNIQUNESS, no matter what it takes, and no matter whom it takes.
We’ve lost friends, family members, co-workers, and even neighbors just for competition over big things and small things, we accused each other of envy and bad intentions, for every reason, and for no reason.
For education, for lifestyle, for getting certified, for reaching the top of everything and over everyone. It’s my idea, I’ll claim that when things hit success, but it’s your job, I’ll claim so when things are still asking for more efforts to grow.
On the other side of the world, teamwork occupied a great space in most of educational organisations, even during a psychologist therapy, because the gather heals and supports, because the gather fills your gabs, and completes your shortcomings, this is how the gathering supposed to be.
That situation pushed many accidents and crimes to take place lately in Egypt, every once and while we get shocked by a news title says that a student couldn’t handle the stress and suicide, or a couple of students killed their A+ class mate. This is a great warning that it’s coming out of its purpose now, and instead of getting education to serve the community, the education process in itself became a community killer.
Grades are not -and never will be- more valuable than the life of our kids, neither their mental health, nor their relationships with others, family and friends.
It’s important to remind our kids grom time to another, the reason why we’re getting educated, how far we should go for it (the limits), what can we sacrify for it and what we can’t. It’s important for ourselves to remember the goals behind educating our kids as well.
Prophet Muhammad SAW gave us a brief of all that by saying: “and I ask You (Allah) for the knowledge that benefits”.
By getting more involved in the online education era, a lack of communication is taking place, and more misunderstandings are too, more texting, and less talking. If we don’t revive the soul of the gather, less individuals will be able to survive.
Teach them to grow beside one another, not over one another. Teach them to complete one another, not to beat one another. Teach them that life goals are easier to be accomplished if you have an honest mate, not that your mate must be jealous of you!
