Juvenile Or Genius? Youth - The Stumbling Block!


Recommended Posts

Mark Elliot Zuckerberg comes in 100th richest persons of the world. He was just 19 years old when he launched facebook which beats several professionally runned social websites like orkut and others having billion dollars of budget with proper team. Had he thought he was too young to start something innovative, he would have been never known today…

The messenger of Allah ( peace be upon him) would view youth as a opporunity to spread the Islamic guidelines to future generations. Scholars write that teaching youth was his utmost priority this was because he’d view them as future scholars leading the nations. Ibn Abbas got special dua from the messenger himself despite the fact he was just a kid.

Aisha r.a was just 18 years old when the messenger of Allah passed away, yet
she had learned so much by that time. Her knowledge was above and superior to many old companions..and there are so many other companions who were young but were on religious and social front leading the nation, one prominent example is of osama bin zaid r.a leading an army during one of the battles..

Amongst the finest examples of youth playing a significant role is the example of people of cave mentioned in Surah kahf verse 13 ” Indeed, they were youths who believed in their Lord, and We increased them in guidance.”

Many people consider their age to be a stumbling block to success. Islamic essence doesnt consider it to be a stumbling block rather views it as an opporunity to sucess.. This is very much evident from the quotation of
Az-Zuhri who addressed the youth saying: “Do not look down upon yourselves due to your young age for ‘Omar ibn al-Khattab used to call for the youth seeking their consultation due to their sharp minds when a new matter came to him.”

For all the young ones out there, smell the coffee and yeild the best of it in all the domains of life either it’s social, religious or academic… ..
