Sabahat Rana (Group Fatima)
We take it for granted when we come to know the greatness of the ‘pen’. It is the first creation of Allaah. It is that instrument with which our deeds are recorded and we will be asked about them on the Day of Judgement. We also use this beneficial object to put our thoughts on paper and therefore are able to excel in our learning abilities. And last but not least, it was that which helped preserve the Holy Qur’an by putting it leaves of palm, leather, etc by the help of the ‘pen’.
If Allaah gave it so much importance, then how should we behave towards it? We should treat the ‘pen’ with respect by not throwing it around or chewing it by the tip of our teeth and also teach our younger ones to do the same. If we can not respect the utensils with which knowledge is gained, how will we then be able to respect the knowledge itself?
May Allaah give us all the tawfeeq to make use of and take benefit from the knowledge He has bestowed upon us and teach us the etiquettes of acting upon it. Aameen.
