Today we address questions in respect of Enki, the brainiest Annunaki, Enlil, and some ranks of the Anunnaki
IS IT TRUE THAT ENKI WAS ONCE “KILLED” BY ENLIL, THE BIBLE’S PRINCIPAL JEHOVAH?
Correct. But exactly when this happened is not clear from the Sumerian chronicles but it was post-the Great Flood of Noah’s day. Part of the story, which is not attributed to an authoritative source anyway, reads as follows: “Lord Enlil invited Lord Enki to a fabulous ceremony on Mars to commemorate the survival of the Human Race (during the Great Flood). The Palace was colossal on Sedonia (a hill-top in a region n of Mars). Enki accepted and participated in the ceremony.
The Canus crowds (the beings from Syria, where Enlil originated) cheered as Lord Enki walked on the Royal walkway, as he reached the Tabernacle to receive his Sacred Ceremonial Gift. A Canus Priest by the Name of Cha Mok stabbed Enki in the Neck instantly killing him.â€¨The Canus crowds were in shock and horror. The Canus Guards arrested the assassin and immediately had the priest executed.
Prince Enlil jumped on the stage platform and said, “My Brother was killed by an Enemy of the House of King Anu. We will find these enemies and they will serve justice. The Wolfen (Sirian) crowds growled and howled, the Temple shook.‘Prince Enki, My Brother, is Dead,’ Enlil wept with crocodile tears. “I mourn for I lost a Brother who was in spirit a rebel and wanted to create something different, something new! But this has now come to an end.
We the Canus people will honour his memory by burying him with another rebel who also believed in new ideas: we will bury him next to Zeus (Alalu in this context, who we copiously wrote about) who Orion (where Enki originated) and Sirius had to fight against …â€¨We will find the killers of my Brother but now we must bury him with honour next to the god Zeus inside the Holy Face on Mars, the Temple of the Gods". But the great Enki did not expire: his genius son Zidda rushed over to Mars (at the insistence of Marduk) from Earth and Enki was swiftly restored to life. But it took time before he could be fully recovered as the injury was very profound. The Andromedans confirmed this incident to Alex Collier, their principal Earthling contactee.
WE USE ONLY A FRACTION OF OUR BRAIN. WE SUFFER FROM THE SAME DISEASES AS ANIMALS, AN INFERIOR SPECIES. WE ARE WAY SMALLER THAN OTHER HUMANOIDS SUCH AS THE ANUNNAKI AND EVEN OUR OWN HOMINID COUSIN, THE CHIMPANZEE. BLAME IT ON ENKI!
I do not agree. When Enki genetically engineered Adam from Homo Eretus (Ape Man, or simply the Apa), he was under strict instruction from Enlil, then Earth’s CEO, to dumb down the human species substantially. Enlil wanted a human who was way inferior to the Anunnaki. Enki did not by any means have full, independent discretion. I say, “Blame it on Enlil”.
HUMANS TEND TO BE MORE PROMISCUOUS THAN VIRTUOUS. DID THAT COME FROM ENKI’S DNA? WE KNOW ENKI WAS A SERIAL PHILANDERER!
I strongly suspect so. Remember, Enki, who had a seamless libido, was in the habit of shagging everybody and anybody, including his own daughters, although the moral code of the Anunnaki was often at variance with that of humans!
HOW DID THE ENKI’S OF THIS WORLD SEXUALLY SUIT TINY HUMANS (COMPARATIVELY SPEAKING) WHEN THEY WERE GIANTS?
The physical size of the Anunnaki has been grossly exaggerated in some accounts. The males ranged between 7-8 feet tall on average. The tallest human on record was Robert Wardlow, who stood at 8 foot 11 inches. The WWE wrestler Big Show is just over 7 feet and his wife is a tiny female. The Anunnaki and humans were very sexually compatible.
WHO WOULD HAVE AN INTELLECTUAL EDGE OVER THE OTHER BETWEEN ENKI AND THE RENOWNED FIFTEEN?
Your guess is as good as mine. It is said Fifteen (who is regarded by aliens as Earth’s brightest) has an off-chart IQ. Enki is said to be the Anunnaki’s greatest intellect, the “Knower of Everything”. I’d love to see the two pit their wits in a public forum.
WAS ENKI THE BEST-LOOKING ANUNNAKI?
He was one of the cutest. But the real Romeo was his genius son Zidda, followed by Enlil’s Earth-born son Nannar-Sin, the Allah of Islam.â€¨â€¨WHERE IS ENKI PRESENTLY?
I gather he’s Prime Minister on the throne planet of Orion. Remember, he’s the firstborn son of the Orion Queen, who’s also the Queen overall of the Sirian-Orion star system, of which the Solar System is a part. Sadly, he will never inherit as it is Enlil who holds that right.
ENKI TYPICALLY BOASTED ABOUT NIBIRU AND NOT THE THRONE PLANET OF THE ORION STAR SYSTEM, HIS PLACE OF ORIGIN. ISN’T THAT A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS?
It could be the Sumerian scribes doctored his statements to slant them in the direction of Nibiru. The Anunnaki mostly focused on Nibiru in their inculcations to mankind as it was nearer and familiar.
WHY WAS ENLIL MISTAKEN FOR JUPITER BY THE GREEKS WHEN JUPITER (JA-PTAH, AS ENKI WAS KNOWN TO ANCIENT EGYPTIANS) CLEARLY REFERRED TO ENKI?
Maybe they wanted to exalt Enlil above Enki. Remember, their principal deities were Nannar-Sin (Zeus) and Utu-Shamash (Apollo, who was Sin’s heir). But we cannot completely rule out that it was an innocent error.
DID ENKI’S OTHER NAME, PTAH, HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE PAAL TAAL, THE PURPORTED CREATORS OF MANKIND?
Possibly. Like the Paal Taal, Enki was a creator god, the fashioner of the modern version of mankind. Maybe the moniker was a tribute to this remarkable capacity.
WHY WAS ENKI SO DOCILE IN THE PYRAMID WARS? AS A GENIUS OF ALL STRIPES, HE WOULD HAVE EASILY MADE MINCE OF THE ENLILITES!
He had the generally tender virtues of his mother, the Orion Queen. In fact, all Enkites save for Nergal, the second-born, were known for their self-restraint.
WHY DID ENKI WAIT 300 YEARS BEFORE HE MEDIATED BETWEEN MARDUK AND ZIDDA OVER THE RULERSHIP OF EGYPT?
To somebody hailing from Nibiru, where a year translates to about 3600 years, 300 years was equivalent to only a few months. So Enki hardly dragged his feet at all.
WHY DID THE ANUNNAKI SEND OVER TO EARTH THEIR CHILDREN WHO WERE NEXT IN LINE, SUCH AS ENKI AND ENLIL? DO YOU SO STAKE YOUR HEIRS INTO SUCH A POSSIBLY DANGEROUS ADVENTURE?
The matter was not simply about the possible colonisation of a gold-rich planet: it was also about the colonisation of a a whole planetary system. In such ventures, you don’t send also-rans: you send your own flesh-and-blood just in case the former grow wings of all a sudden and challenge your supremacy.
WHO WAS ENKI’S FAVOURITE SON?
Zechariaj Sitchin, the foremost authority on the Anunnaki saga, seems to suggest that it was Dumuzi on the basis of the fact that Enki wept bitterly over his death. But Enki also wept inconsolably over the murder of Abel by Cain. On the other hand, the Sumerian records are categorical that Enki’s favourite son was Zidda. He embodied Enki’’s staggering wisdom, his arresting looks, his brains, and his overall kindness. People naturally gravitate toward children who are their spitting images in more ways than one.
WILL ENKI EVER RETURN TO EARTH?
Good question. Maybe at the dawn of Aquarius (to reclaim it from Utu-Shamash) as the planet has great sentimental value to him.
IF ENKI WAS THE SHARPEST ANUNNAKI, WHO WAS SUPPOSEDLY THE DUMBEST?
Probably Ishkur-Adad, who was adamant that might was always right.
WHY WERE ENLIL AND ENKI SO IRRECONCILIABLY AT ODDS?
They were cut-throat contenders both for the Nibiru and Earth throne. Moreover, Enki was of Orion origin in toto: he was born asexually, to the Orion Queen, whereas Enlil was a full-blooded Sirian, whose biological parents were both Sirians (King Anu and Antu, both of which monarchical titles.). Of the two, Enki was tenderer in that he had inherited softer female virtues from his mother. On the other hand, Enlil had the macho genes of a Reptilian-Leonine-Wolfen descent.
True, Enki loved his women and Enlil was inviolably moral in this respect but I’d rather have hobnobbed with the former than the latter. Enki was in fact of the view generally that Anu favoured Enlilites. For instance, he didn’t believe that his loss of sovereignty over Earth in favour of Enlil was objective but was rigged in the latter’s favour.
WHERE EXACTLY IN AFRICA WAS ENLI EXILED WHEN HE “RAPED” THE CUTE NURSE SUD?
When I find out, I’ll give you a shout. Neither Sitchin nor the Sumerian records shed clearer light on the matter.
WHO WAS ENLIL’S FAVOURITE SON?
The Sumerian records are not categorical on the matter but circumstantial evidence suggests it was Nannar-Sin. Ninurta, his firstborn, was too militarily aggressive, and Ishkur-Adad, his third and last born, was too harsh. Enlil himself was kind of middle-of-the-road.
WHERE IS ENLIL AS WE SPEAK?
He is his Sin’s principal adviser on the planet Nibiru. Remember, Sin is the current ruler of Nibiru and Enlil is hailed in the Sumerian records as a brilliant administrator.
WHY DID ENLIL ALMOST TOTALLY REFRAIN FROM ADDRESSING EVE IN THE “GARDEN OF EDEN”?
He had a very deprecating view of women in general, particularly Earthlings. It explains why he never had sexual relations with an Earthling whatsoever.
DID THE ANUNNAKI EVER FALL SICK?
They did yes but not from diseases that typically afflict mankind and the animal kingdom. They were fully evolved when they became humanoids whereas we were genetically fast-tracked to bring about a “worker race” courtesy of Enlil or “a helper race” in Enki’s view.
WHY WAS NINMAH (ENLIL’S FULL-SISTER AND ENKI’S HALF-SISTER) RANKED LOWER THAN NINLI (ENLIL’S WIFE SUD)?
Because Ninli was the wife of Earth’s CEO. It is as simple as that. In any case, Ninmah never was married thanks to a curse from his father Anu and a rank derived from a male spouse. Ninlil, for example, was 45, and Ninki’s (Enki’s wife) was 35. This is 5 less than the ranks of the two ladies’ hubbies.
WHY DID THE EGYPTIANS REFER TO NABU (MARDUK’S ELDEST SON); HORUS; AND ISIS AS GODS WHEN THEY HAD A SUBSTANTIAL PROPORTION OF HUMAN GENES?
Maybe it was purely out of “respect”. We will never know the truth.
WHO WERE THE NASTIEST ANUNNAKI?
It were Nergal and Ninurta. Remember, it were they who nuked Sodom and Gomorrah. But they did so at the orders of Enlil. Hence he too belongs in the same diabolical bracket.
HOW DID THE ANUNNAKI PROJECT DREAMS INTO THE MINDS OF MANKIND?
Good question. Sadly, I have no idea!
WHY IS APOLLO (UTU-SHAMASH )ALWAYS DEPICTED WITH A LAUGHABLY SMALL PENIS?
It could be he was not as well-endowed as he bragged. People who talk great perform rather dismally in this respect. But his Sumerian name Shamash, meaning “rocket-like” suggests he was very well-endowed anyway in a metaphorical sense. .
WHY DIDN’T ENKI OUTRIGHTGLY DISOWN A REBELLIOUS NERGAL?
He actually did so but indirectly. Blood is blood: you never declaim it in the heat of emotion.
THE ANUNNAKI ENFORCED MORALS THEY THEMSLEVES DID NOT SHOWCASE. IS THAT FAIR FOR A PEOPLE WHO FANCIED THEMSLEVES AS THE “GODS” OF MANKIND?
The Anunnaki were received as gods by mankind: they never imposed themselves as such on mankind. They thus had the moral licence to behave in the extremes they did. Even Jesus was received as a god-man by middle-easters when he would rather be the “Son of Man”, his most evoked title.
THE BLACKS THAT WE OCCASIONALY ENCOUNTER WITH BLUE EYES AND BLONDE HAIR: ARE THEY DESCENDED FROM THE ANUNNAKI?
I’d like to believe so. The ruling Anunnaki bore such features. Genetics is a rather complex subject. Even the experts have not fully grasped it yet.
JUST WHY WOULDN’T MARDUK MARRY A FELLOW ANUNNAKI?
Seemingly, he was determined to endear himself to mankind. Enki, Marduk, and Zidda were the three Anunnaki who valued mankind a great deal.
WHO OF THE ANUNNAKI WOULD YOU LOVE TO MEET?
Of course it is Enki, Marduk, and Zidda, and possibly Nannar-Sin. It’s a pity Marduk is dead. Enlil, Ninurta, Adad, and Inanna I’d avoid like the plague!
ARE THE ANUNNAKI AND THE CORTEUM THE SAME PEOPLE?
Not really. The Corteum had elongated heads whereas the Anunnaki looked just like we do. Moreover, the Corteum came from a far-flung planet whereas the Anunnaki hailed from “neighbouring” Nibiru.
IF SIRIANS (SUCH AS ENLIL) WERE PRIMARILY WOLFEN, WHY DID THEY IDENTIFY THEMSELVES PRIMARILY AS FELINES, MORE SO LEONINES?
They wanted to identify themselves with the “King of Beasts”, which the lion is putatively. Besides, the lion is one of the best-looking and most ferocious of creatures.
WHY WERE THE ANUNNAKI IN THE HABIT OF WAGING WAR ON EACH OTHER?
They were not exactly the same people. The Enlilites originated from the Sirian star system whereas the Enkites hailed from Orion. In general though, their behavior was not that odd. Here on Earth, we’re the same people but we have been fighting each other since days immemorial, though much of this confrontation is instigated by the Reptoid race.
NEXT WEEK: QUESTIONS ON THE ANNUNAKI’S “ELIXIR OF LIFE”
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.
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 body’s physical, intellectual and spiritual needs. He takes good care of his body, promoting its good health and strength. He shouldn’t 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 neighbour’s 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.
“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…..children’s potential lost to spirit crushing poverty….children’s hearts lost in divorce and custody battles….children’s lives lost to abuse and violence, our society lost to itself, as we fail our children.” “If you bungle raising your children, I don’t 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 Qur’an 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.
