Teachers

The Mua’allimeen

Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA in a bayan addressed to mu’allimeen (the teachers) said, “teaching is my work and I am designating to you.”  Mu’allimeen must always teach children with sincerity, commitment and care. Syedna Abdul Qadir Najmuddin RA used to call children of mumineen, “the strength of tomorrow.”  Teachers and parents should always inculcate good values in their children and provide them with an environment that facilitates their exposure to the teachings and principles of Islam and Imaan.

The role of a teacher is known to contribute immensely towards the child’s development. The Ikhwan us safa talks about the difference between learning something on one’s own versus learning something from a teacher. Just as young chickens which after being born immediately start to feed on their own are unable to fly high, and pigeons which are fed by the mother and father bird are able to fly high up in the sky. Similarly, for maximum learning to take place one must have a quality teacher-student relationship with a qualified teacher who nurtures the child according to his/her age and understanding.
