Education is not ‘Process of Investment & Profit’: IJT tells Students, Felicitates TST Toppers



Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT) Jammu and Kashmir in collaboration with Government Boys Higher Secondary School Budgam Wednesday organized a seminar titled ‘Living a Worthy Life Today’ in the school campus.

The seminar was followed by felicitating students who topped in the recently conducted Talent Search Test (TST) conducted by IJT.

Hundreds of students and other dignitaries keenly listened to many academic and religious scholars who delivered lectures on ‘living a worthy life’ according to the ideals set by Qur’an and Sunnah.

The introductory session was conducted by an IJT ex-member and scholar, Manzoor Ahmad Pal who briefed on various aspects of worthy life especially for youth. He mainly advised the youth to shun lethargy and learn time management.

During the occasion, Umar Sultan, President IJT J&K gave an lecture on ‘Prophetic Ideals for Youth’.

“You are the biggest asset for the society, always question yourself about your achievements and objectives,” he said while addressing the gathering of students.

Umar specifically mentioned Prophet Yousuf (AS) as a great example for youth to live their life of purity and not give in to materialism and shameful activities.

“Hazrat Yousuf (AS) preferred incarceration to immorality and kept on pursuing his divinely objective, as students you should use these prophetic ideals as a torch bearer for your entire life,” Omar added.

He also referred to the anti-social activities such as scams and corruption that are being done by educated lot.

“They may be literate but they are not following Quranic ideals, you should always combine ‘Iqra’ with ‘Bismi-Rabbika’, such knowledge would never derail you,” Omar advised while referring to the Qur’an and importance of knowledge.

Dr Yaqoob Ahmad, the topper of CET 2007 also spoke on the occasion.

“Islamic and scientific knowledge are not different, they should be taught and learned harmoniously,” he said.

Expert educationist and Zonal Education and Planning Officer, Bugam, Zahoor Ahmad Shah reverberated the occasion with Iqbal’s (RA) verses.

Ex-General Secretary IJT, Riyaz Ahmad Shah, also spoke on the occasion. He advised the students not to consider education as a “process of investment and profit”, but to consider it as the entire life itself.

“Revolution is not a day’s attempt. You should focus for life and try to bring revolution through reformation,” Shah said.

Zubair Ahmad, Lecturer Zoology, Hr Sec Budgam thanked IJT for organizing the event in the school.

The seminar concluded after top ten students of the recently conducted Talent Search Test by IJT were awarded trophies and cash prize.  Syed Nazish Bukhari of Public School Wadwan was adjudged as the topper. Wani Basit of Beerwah grabbed second position. The third position was shared between Mir Abdul Wajid and Suvaid Ashiq.
