Was the Good Lord on Ormus?

Benson C Saili
THIS EARTH, MY BROTHER

The white powder of gold may  account for those “miracles”    

In The Jesus Papers series of sixty-four articles, we spoke at length about a reclusive Jewish sect   known as the Essenes. The Essenes, among whom numbered Jesus and John the Baptist, had set themselves apart from the mainstream Jewish community to establish their own settlement in the Judean wilderness. The settlement was known as Qumran and it overlooked the Dead Sea.


Now, conventionally speaking, the Dead Sea is indeed dead. It has one of the saltiest waters on Earth and therefore no plant thrives in it and no fish flourishes in there. Its salinity is such that nothing sinks in it: everything floats, including swimmers. Moreover, the area around the Dead Sea is one of the most arid on the planet, with annual rainfall averaging only 100 mm in the north, where the Essenes were based.

 

That is not conducive to agricultural activities at all. Nor does sea water support irrigated agriculture. So why did the Essenes settle in such an existentially incongruous environment? Why didn’t they opt for the banks of the more amenable Jordan River?


The answer is a simple one although it has escaped our mainstream historians. It all had to do with Ormus, a substance in which the Dead Sea was and still is very rich. Dead Sea precipitate has been assessed to contain about 70 percent gold in a monoatomic state. In fact, most of the US-based companies who market Ormus make it plain that they extract their Ormus from Dead Sea salt. It turns out the Dead Sea is not actually dead but in fact bristles with life-giving Ormus.


The great Greek philosopher and scientist Aristotle (384-322 BC) wrote of the Dead Sea’s remarkable healing properties. Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt (69-30 BC) was so smitten it was rumoured she prevailed over her mighty husband Mark Anthony to invade the region so she could have limitless access to its health-promoting waters and mud. 

 

Even today, a bucket of Dead Sea mud fetches about $100 a pop in some nearby bazaar. During his reign (67 BC to 4 AD), Herod the Great built arguably the world’s first health spa on the edge of the Dead Sea. Clearly, the sea had something that was not known to the common man and of course this was Ormus, the monoatomic white powder of gold.  


How do we know the Essenes used Ormus? First, it is common knowledge that the Essenes were famed for their healing powers.  Their very name Essenes – essenoi in Greek – apparently derives from the Aramaic term assaya, which means “physician”.   The legendary Jewish historian Flavius Josephus says the Essenes, “received their medicinal knowledge of roots and stones (minerals such as gold) from the ancients”. 

 

Ormus confers that by the truckload. Second, Josephus tells us that the Essenes were noted for their extraordinary lifespans. They could live up to 100 years at a juncture in history when the average lifespan was 45 years. Ormus enables more than ordinary lifespans as we have already demonstrated. In fact, a metallurgical foundry has been excavated at Qumran, which obviously was used to process Ormus from monoatomic gold obtained from the Dead Sea.


One of the most recurring terms in the Dead Sea Scrolls, a work of the Essenes, is “Teacher of Righteousness”.  The term alternatively refers to a person or an object. When it refers to a person, the most apparent candidate is John the Baptist, who was the dynastic Melchizedek, meaning “Righteous Priest-King”.

 

The Melchizedek was the head of the Essenes although John declaimed the title, opting for a reclusive life in the Judean wilds.   When it refers to an object, it is, according to David Hudson, who researched the Dead Scrolls, talking about Ormus. A statement in one scroll says, “The High Spirit swallowed the Teacher of Righteousness,” meaning he ingested Ormus.
      
DID JESU EMPLOY ORMUS?

In the course of The Jesus Papers, we underlined one particularly pertinent point. This was that the Jesus story had elements of fact, fable, allegory, and cryptogram. A little known fact about the Bible as a whole is that it has multiple layers. The Bible is written not so much in straightforward language as in coded language. Thus a statement or story that appears to mean one thing to the ordinary reader may carry a radically different or a simply additional underlying meaning to initiates to the code.  


For example, the statements attributed to Jesus are pregnant with encrypted communication. Some of these statements were veiled references to Ormus.  Firstly, Jesus called himself “The Bread of Life” (JOHN 6:35) and “The Water of life” (JOHN 4:14). Both these terms referred to Ormus. Intriguingly, Jesus did not endorse Ormus: to the contrary, he spoke against it. Listen to what he says in this passage: “Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died.

 

But here is the bread (he himself) that comes down from Heaven, which anyone may eat and not die” (JOHN 6:49-50). Jesus contrasts the Ormus (manna) the Israelites were fed on at Mount Sinai with the Ormus that he embodied as a man who came straight from Heaven (the Astral plane).

 

What Jesus was simply saying was that his teachings were much more spiritually illuminating and nourishing than the partaking of Ormus, that his teachings were superior to Ormus, which the Essenes called “The Teacher of Righteousness” as we saw above. In other words, Jesus was saying, “stop using Ormus for God’s sake and just listen to me. Whatever Ormus is capable of doing to you my teachings can do ten-fold.”  


Why did Jesus denounce Ormus? Because it was man-made, whereas his Ormus, his teachings, came straight from “The Father”, that is, the First Source that created all things. But there are seeming contradictions. When Jesus sets out to teach his disciples how to pray, he recites to them the so-called Lord’s Prayer, which contains the Ormus statement “Give us this day our daily bread”. Of course we now know that the Lord’s Prayer was put into Jesus’s mouth either by the gospel writers or later redactors as it is taken word for word from Spell 125 of The Egyptian Book of the Dead.


The irony of the matter though is that Jesus himself performed acts typically associated with a person who consumes Ormus. He would heal people by laying hands (LUKE 4:40) or simply speak healing from a distance (JOHN 4:43-54). Once he healed a deaf-mute (MARK 7:33) and a blind man (JOHN 9:6) using “spittle”, another term by which Ormus is known. After the resurrection, he could vanish and re-appear (LUKE 24:36/JOHN 20:26) out of the blue. He could levitate (LUKE 24: 50-51/ACTS 1:3).

 

He could walk on water (MATTHEW 14: 22-33). He could read minds (MATTHEW 9:4). He could remote-view (JOHN 1:48-50). He could sense evil thoughts (JOHN 13:27). He could shine like the noon day sun (MATTHEW 17:2/MARK 9:2–3/LUKE 9:28–36).  He was able to go without food for 40 days and 40 nights ( HYPERLINK "http://biblehub.com/nasb/matthew/4.htm" MATTHEW 4:1-11/  HYPERLINK "http://biblehub.com/nasb/mark/1.htm" MARK 1:12, 13/  HYPERLINK "http://biblehub.com/nasb/luke/4.htm" LUKE 4:1-13).

 

He may not have actually done these things, but even if they were simply symbolic attributions or pure allegory, the underlying message in keeping with the Bible code points to what consuming Ormus can entail. The halo that we see around Jesus in renaissance paintings may in part underline his capacity to shine thanks to taking Ormus.


As for the contradiction (denouncing Ormus while at the same time evincing its very use), this is easy to explain: the gospels were written not by a homogeneous group but by people with often conflicting agendas. Thus whilst some writers would have loved to bring his use of Ormus to the fore, others chose to disinform about it.   

THE PHARAOHS USED ORMUS

The past masters of alchemy – the art of transmuting gold or any of the ORME elements into Ormus – were ancient Egyptians. Ormus is cryptically mentioned in The Egyptian Book of the Dead, the world’s oldest book. In the book, it is referred to as, “What is it?” – the same phrase translated as manna in the Old Testament corpus. 

 

The Pharaohs, priests, and alchemical adepts all fed on Ormus. Since Moses was born and brought up in Egypt as a royal aristocrat, he too became acquainted with Ormus. Israelite artisans and metallurgists such as Benzaleel, who constructed the Ark of the Covenant, honed the art of making Ormus whilst they were “slaves” (a scribal exaggeration) in Egypt.  


In the same Book of the Dead, we encounter a passage that reads thus: “I am purified of all imperfections. What is it? I ascend like the golden hawk of Horus. What is it? I pass by the immortals without dying. What is it? I come before my Father in Heaven. What is it?”
This “question” continues ad infinitum.  Although it may appear enigmatic at surface, all the utterer of the statement was spelling out were the wonders of ingesting Ormus – perfect health, clarity of thought and mind, ability to soar in the skies, virtual immortality, astral projection, etc.


Ancient Egyptians were aware that there were basically two aspects to the human body. First, there was the obvious – the physical body. Then there was the much subtler underlying body. This was the spirit body. They called this the Ka.  The ancient Egyptians recognised that both the physical body and the Ka needed to be fed. Writes David Hudson: “In ancient Egypt, they said … you also have to feed the spirit body, you have to feed the Ka, so it can grow and become what it’s meant to be. And most of you are not feeding your Ka.

 

It is sitting there like a little runt inside your body. The texts say you must feed the Ka with the Semen of the Father in Heaven, the Milk of the Gods. And the Ka grows and grows, becoming ever more enlightened, until you reach a point where the light body exceeds the material body, you literally light up the room when you walk in.”


The “Semen of the Father in Heaven” and the “Milk of the Gods” were coded terms for Ormus. Ormus was believed to be not a physical matter but a spiritualised form of matter. It was the “Elixir of Immortality” or “Food of the Gods” – which, when ingested, would confer enormous spiritual power. As such, it was capable of teleporting one into another dimension.

 

Indeed when Pharaohs were staring death in the face, they did not die the way we do: they simply voluntarily left the world along with their physical bodies, which explains why most of their tombs are empty (these were the earliest pharaohs, not the latter ones). Ormus translated both their physical and spiritual bodies at once. The Egyptian Book of the Dead comprehensively traces the steps the Pharaoh took in his ascent to “Heaven” after physical death.      

 

Enki’s son Marduk (also known as Ra)  as god of Egypt made it a point to urge the pharaohs to stock up with gold, convert it to Ormus, and ingest it for the betterment of both their physical and spiritual health. In The Lost Book of Enki, we’re provided a glimpse into this injunction: “Gold is the Splendour of Life, to them he (Marduk) said. The Flesh of the Gods it is! to the kings Ra said. To make expeditions to the Abzu and the Lower Domain, gold to obtain, the kings he instructed.”  


By “Flesh of the Gods” and “Splendour of Life”, what Marduk was saying was that gold in the form of Ormus was responsible for the consistently splendid health of the Anunnaki and for their extraordinary longevity, which Earthlings misconstrued for immortality. It was essential therefore that the Pharaohs go and personally obtain gold from southern Africa. It was because of confiding Anunnaki secrets to mankind that Marduk was so mortally hated by the Enlilites.  


EDIN IDEAL LOCATION FOR ORMUS INGREDIENTS

In The Lost Book of Enki, the story-teller, Enki, commands his master scribe Endubasar (who documented Enki’s dictation) to “eat the bread and drink the water and be sustained for forty days and forty nights” (an echo of the Jesus stint in the wilderness) prior to the commencement of his script-writing labours. What kind of bread can keep a man going without conventional food for such a length of time? Of course it’s none other than Ormus.


That Ormus was central to Anunnaki wellbeing is very cleverly encoded right in the opening passages of Genesis. Talking about the Edin (Eden in the Bible), the Anunnaki’s first settlement on Earth in southern Iraq, GENESIS 2:12 reads: “And the gold of that land is good: there is also bdellium and the onyx stone.” There’s more than meets the eye to this statement folks: it specifies the three materials fundamental to the preparation of Ormus.  


Bdelium is gum resin. The Egyptian word for gum resin is kmy.t, which originally meant “black earth”.  Now, ancient alchemists used code language to denote the ingredients required to make Ormus as the process was classified by the alchemical adepts. One of the three primary ingredients was antimony ore (stibnite), which is black. Bdelium was therefore a code word for black antimony.


Onyx is a semi-precious stone that can assume a dark-red colour. As such, it signifies a red stone. Needless to say, Onyx was a code word for cinnabar, the dark red rock from which mercury is extracted. To make Ormus, gold was the primary ingredient. Mercury and antimony were the auxiliary elements. The fact that these three metals are mentioned together in the inceptual lines of Genesis is no mere chance.


It is also noteworthy that all the three metals were obtainable around the Edin. The Zagros Mountain range (which straddles Iran, Iraqi, and southeastern Turkey)   and the river Pishon/Uizon (GENESIS 2:11) were prominent sources of gold in antiquity. (Today the river Uizon flows past a village in Turkey called Zarshuyan, which means ‘gold washing’, which is more than a tell-tale.)  In ancient times, northwestern Iran provided a rich source of antimony and eastern Turkey abounded with cinnabar ores.  It goes without saying that when the Anunnaki chose Iraq as their first settlement on Earth, they took due account of its strategic location – its proximity to sources of the principal ingredients for Ormus.      


It is also significant that the description of the location of the Garden of Eden (GENESIS 2:10-14) follows immediately after the first mention of the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge (GENESIS 2:9). Again this is not a coincidence. In the purview of multiple encoded meanings of biblical accounts, the Tree of Life was amongst other things symbolic of Ormus, the elixir of the Anunnaki “gods”.  

The “Tree of Knowledge” was symbolic, amongst other things, of the theoretical and practical knowledge required to actually produce Ormus. The expulsion of Adam and Eve from Eden lest they partake of the Tree of Life and “live forever” may therefore be emblematic of their being forbidden access to Ormus.

 

The Anunnaki God of Knowledge as we have already established was Enki. Enki was also the Anunnaki’s  master alchemist. It was Enki who taught Adapa, his son with an Earthling woman, and Cain the art of alchemy. From that time, Adapa and his descendents became alchemical priests. For example, Tubal-Cain, who was several generations removed from Cain, is described in the Bible as a metallurgist specialising in copper and iron.

 

It is small wonder Enki was so abhorred by Enlil as he gave away the secrets of the gods to mankind.  He was the Prometheus who stole fire (privileged knowledge) from Mount Olympus (the abode of the ruling god Jehovah-Enlil) and gave it to the Adamite race, his creation.

Technology saves Lions from angry Okavango villagers

22nd November 2022

Villagers in the eastern Okavango region are now using an alert system which warns them when collared lions approach livestock areas. The new technology is now regarded as a panacea to the human/wildlife conflict in the area as it has reduced mass poisoning and killing of lions by farmers.

The technology is being implemented by an NGO, Community Living Among Wildlife Sustainably (CLAWS) within the five villages of Seronga, Gunutsoga, Eretsha, Beetsha and Gudigwa in the eastern part of the Okavango delta.

A Carnivore Ecologist from CLAWS, Dr Andrew Stein explained that around 2013, villagers in the eastern Okavango were having significant problems with losses of their cattle to predators specifically lions, so the villagers resorted to using poison and shooting the lions in order to reduce their numbers.

He highlighted that as a form of progressive intervention, they designed a programme to reduce the conflicts and promote coexistence. Another component of the programme is communal herding, introduced in 2018 to reduce the conflict by increasing efficiency whereby certified herders monitor livestock health and protect them from predators, allowing community members to engage in other livelihood activities knowing that their livestock are safe.

They are now two herds with 600 and 230 cattle respectively with plan to expand the programme to other neighbouring villages. Currently the programme is being piloted in Eretsha, one of the areas with most conflict incidences per year.

Dr Stein explained that they have developed the first of its kind alert system whereby when the lions get within three or five kilometers of a cattllepost or a homestead upon the five villages, then it will release an alert system going directly to the cellphones of individuals living within the affected area or community.

So, if a colored lion gets to about five kilometers of Eretsha village or any villagers in the Eretsha that has signed up for, the system will receive an SMS of the name of the lion and its distance to or from the village, he stated. He added that this enables villagers to take preventative action to reduce conflicts before its starts.

Dr Stein noted that some respond by gathering their cattle and put them in a kraal or put them in an enclosure making sure that the enclosure is secure while some people will gather firewood and light small fires around edges of the kraal to prevent lions from coming closer and some when they receive the SMS they send their livestock to the neighbours alerting them about the presence of lions.

He noted that 125 people have signed to receive the alert system within Seronga, Eretsha, Beetsha, Gunutsoga and Gudigwa. He added that each homestead is about five people and this means more than 600 people immediately receive the messages about lions when they approach their villages. He also noted that last year they dispersed over 12 000 alerts, adding that this year is a bit higher as about 20 000 alerts have been sent so far across these villages.

Stein further noted that they have been significant changes in the behavior of the villagers as they are now tolerant to lions. 85 percent were happy with the SMS and people are becoming more tolerant with living with lions because they have more information to reduce the conflicts, he stressed.

Stein noted that since the start of the programme in 2014 they have seen lion populations rebounds almost completely to a level before and they have not recorded cases of lion poisoning in the last three years which is commendable effort.

Monnaleso Sanga from Eretsha village applauded the programme by CLAWS noting that farmers in the area are benefiting through the alert system and take preventative measures to reduce human/lion conflict which has been persistent in the area. He added that numbers of cattle killed by lions have reduced immensely. He also admitted that they are now tolerant to lions and they no longer kill nor poison them.

THE IDEAL QUALITY OF A MUSLIM

8th September 2022

A Muslim is supposed to be and should be a living example of the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah (the teachings and living examples of Prophet Muhammed (SAW Peace be upon Him). We should follow these in all affairs, relations, and situations starting with our relationship with our Lord, our own self, our family and the people around us. One of the distinguishing features of the (ideal) Muslim is his faith in Allah, and his conviction that whatever happens in the universe and whatever befalls him, only happens through the will and the decree of the Almighty Allah.

A Muslim should know and feel that he is in constant need of the help and support of Allah, no matter how much he may think he can do for himself. He has no choice in his life but to submit to the will of his Creator, worship Him, strive towards the Right Path and do good deeds. This will guide him to be righteous and upright in all his deeds, both in public and in private.

His attitude towards his body, mind and soul

The Muslim pays attention to his bodys physical, intellectual and spiritual needs. He takes good care of his body, promoting its good health and strength. He shouldnt eat in excess; but he should eat enough to maintain his health and energy. Allah, The Exalted, Says Eat and drink; but waste not by excess, for Allah loves not the wasters. [Quran 7: 31]

The Muslim should keep away from alcohol and drugs. He should also try to exercise regularly to maintain his physical fitness. The Muslim also keeps his body and clothes clean, he bathes frequently. The Prophet placed a great emphasis on cleanliness and bathing. A Muslim is also concerned with his clothing and appearance but in accordance with the Islamic ideal of moderation, avoiding the extremes.

As for his intellectual care, the Muslim should take care of his mind by pursuing beneficial knowledge. It is his responsibility to seek knowledge whether it is religious or secular, so he may understand the nature and the essence of things. Allah Says: and say: My Lord! Increase me in knowledge. [Quran 20: 114

The Muslim should not forget that man is not only composed of a body and a mind, but that he also possesses a soul and a spirit. Therefore, the Muslim pays as much attention to his spiritual development as to his physical and intellectual development, in a balanced manner which ideally does not concentrate on one aspect to the detriment of others.

His attitude towards people

The Muslim must treat his parents with kindness and respect, compassion, politeness and deep gratitude. He recognizes their status and knows his duties towards them. Allah Says And serve Allah. Ascribe nothing as partner unto Him. (Show) kindness unto parents [Quran 4: 36]

With his wife, the Muslim should exemplify good and kind treatment, intelligent handling, deep understanding of the nature and psychology of women, and proper fulfilment of his responsibilities and duties.

With his children, the Muslim is a parent who should understand his responsibility towards their good upbringing, showing them love and compassion, influence their Islamic development and giving them proper education, so that they become active and constructive elements in society, and a source of goodness for their parents, community, and society as a whole.

With his relatives, the Muslim maintains the ties of kinship and knows his duties towards them. He understands the high status given to relatives in Islam, which makes him keep in touch with them, no matter what the circumstances.

 

With his neighbours, the Muslim illustrates good treatment, kindness and consideration of others feelings and sensitivities. He turns a blind eye to his neighbours faults while taking care not to commit any such errors himself. The Muslim relationship with his wider circle of friends is based on love for the sake of Allah. He is loyal and does not betray them; he is sincere and does not cheat them; he is gentle, tolerant and forgiving; he is generous and he supplicates for them.

In his social relationships with all people, the Muslim should be well-mannered, modest and not arrogant. He should not envy others, fulfils his promises and is cheerful. He is patient and avoids slandering and uttering obscenities. He should not unjustly accuse others nor should he interfere in that which does not concern him. He refrains from gossiping, spreading slander and stirring up trouble – avoids false speech and suspicion. When he is entrusted with a secret, he keeps it. He respects his elders. He mixes with the best of people. He strives to reconcile between the Muslims. He visits the sick and attends funerals. He returns favours and is grateful for them. He calls others to Islam with wisdom, example and beautiful preaching. He should guide people to do good and always make things easy and not difficult.

The Muslim should be fair in his judgments, not a hypocrite, a sycophant or a show-off. He should not boast about his deeds and achievements. He should be straightforward and never devious or twisted, no matter the circumstances. He should be generous and not remind others of his gifts or favours. Wherever possible he relieves the burden of the debtor. He should be proud and not think of begging.

These are the standards by which the (ideal) Muslim is expected to structure his life on. Now how do I measure up and fit into all this? Can I honestly say that I really try to live by these ideals and principles; if not can I really call myself a true Muslim?

For the ease of writing this article I have made use of for want of a better word, the generic term he, his, him and the male gender, but it goes without saying that these standards apply equally to every female and male Muslim.

OUR BELOVED CHILDREN

29th August 2022

Homicide and suicide kill almost 7000 children every year; one in four of all children are born to unmarried mothers, many of whom are children themselves..childrens potential lost to spirit crushing poverty.childrens hearts lost in divorce and custody battles.childrens lives lost to abuse and violence, our society lost to itself, as we fail our children. If you bungle raising your children, I dont think whatever else you do matters very much. (Quotation taken from a book written by Hillary Clinton).

These words may well apply to us here in Botswana; We are also experiencing a series of challenges in many spheres of development and endeavour but none as challenging as the long term effects of what is going to happen to our youth of today. One of the greatest challenges facing us as parents today is how to guide our youth to become the responsible adults that we wish them to be, tomorrow.

In Islam Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has enjoined upon the parents to take care of the moral and religious instruction of their children from the very beginning, otherwise they will be called to account for negligence on the Day of Judgement. Parents must inculcate God-consciousness in their children from an early age, whereby the children will gain an understanding of duty to The Creator.

 

The Holy Quran says: O you who believe! Save yourself and your families from the Fire of Hell. (Ch. 66: V6). This verse places the responsibility on the shoulders of the parents to ensure that training and guidance begin at home. The goal is to mould the child into a solid Islamic personality, with good morals, strong Islamic principles, knowledge and behavior so as to be equipped to face the demands of life in a responsible and mature manner. This should begin with the proper environment at home that inculcates the best moral and behavioral standards.

But what do we have instead? Believers of all Religious persuasions will agree that we have children growing up without parental guidance, a stable home environment, without role models, being brought up in surroundings that are not conducive to proper upbringing and moulding of well-adjusted children. These children are being brought up devoid of any parental guidance and increasingly the desperate situation of orphaned children having to raise their siblings (children raising children) because their parents have succumbed to the scourge of AIDS.

It is becoming common that more and more girls still in their schooling years are now falling pregnant, most of them unwanted, with the attendant responsibilities and difficulties.

Observe the many young ladies who are with children barely in their teens having illegitimate children. In the recent past there was a campaign focused on the girl-child; this campaign targeted this group of young females who had fallen pregnant and were now mothers. The situation is that the mother still being just a child and not even having tasted adulthood, now has the onerous responsibility of raising her own child most of the time on her own because either the father has simply disappeared, refuses to takes responsibility, or in some cases not even known.

We cannot place the entire blame on these young mothers; as parents and society as a whole stand accused because we have shirked our responsibilities and worse still we ourselves are poor role models. The virtual breakdown of the extended family system and of the family unit in many homes means that there are no longer those safe havens of peace and tranquility that we once knew. How then do we expect to raise well-adjusted children in this poisoned atmosphere?

Alcohol has become socially acceptable and is consumed by many of our youth and alarmingly they are now turning to drugs. Alcohol is becoming so acceptable that it is easily accessible even at home where some parents share drinks with their children or buying it for them. This is not confined only to low income families it is becoming prevalent amongst our youth across the board.

 

It is frightening to witness how our youth are being influenced by blatantly suggestive pop culture messages over television, music videos and other social media. Children who are not properly grounded in being able to make rational and informed decisions between what is right and what is wrong are easily swayed by this very powerful medium.

 

So what do we do as parents? We first have to lead by example; it is no longer the parental privilege to tell the child do as I say not as I do- that no longer works. The ball is in the court of every religious leader (not some of the charlatans who masquerade as religious leaders), true adherents and responsible parents. We cannot ignore the situation we have to take an active lead in guiding and moulding our youth for a better tomorrow.

In Islam Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: No father gives a better gift to his children than good manners and good character. Children should be treated not as a burden, but a blessing and trust of Allah, and brought up with care and affection and taught proper responsibilities etiquettes and behaviour.

Even the Bible says;Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God.Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. (Mark 10:14-15)

The message is clear and needs to be taken by all of us: Parents let us rise to the occasion – we owe it to our children and their future.
