ISLAMABAD, July 2: Education and training go hand in hand i.e. through education one can learn whereas training guides one how to utilise that learning. Therefore, the educational institutions should realise and laud the importance of imparting training to the students.

This was said by Dr Masoom Yasinzai Rector International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI) while speaking at a seminar titled: ‘Managing Family Affairs’ organised by Dawah Centre for Women at the new campus of the university.

Dr Masoom added that unfortunately training was being neglected in our education system which focused on adopting education in practical life and that posed our society with numerous challenges.

He urged that in today’s era of media we should all work to train the youth in our society as well as family. Rector IIUI also appreciated the efforts of some religious groups to promote and spread the message of Islam in the country. He considered that it was because of lack of training in the West that they sent their parents to the old houses despite modern education and high standard of living.

“In contrary to this, our society pays more attention and respect to the senior citizens as per the orders of our religion,” said Dr Masoom.

The same was reinforced by the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who said that we should respect and serve our parents, Dr Masoom concluded.

IIUI President Dr Sahibzada Sajidur Rehman said on the occasion that this world and the life hereafter could become a heaven for a Muslim if he follows the family system portrayed by our religion, Islam.

He further said that women had a very important role in the Muslim society. Dr Sajid urged that the lives of Ummahat-ul-momineen (wives of the prophet) and Ashab (the companions of the prophet) are a role model for all of us.
