Plato and His Student Aristotle

By |June 4th, 2020|

If the world has bee able to learn anything about the life of the father of Western Philosophy- Socrates, then it’s only through two of his students: Xenophon and Plato. Although Socrates had many students and taught a lot of people, Plato proved to be his most famous student. Surprisingly, Plato was one of the youths Socrates was convicted for allegedly corrupting in Athens. Through his intellect and influence, Plato also managed to bring a brilliant mind to surface and it was his student Aristotle who later became his colleague and rival at the same time.

Over the centuries, a […]

Know Thyself- WHO WAS SOCRATES?

By |June 2nd, 2020|

I know you won’t believe me but the highest form of human excellence is to question oneself and others- Socrates

A scholar, a teacher, a philosopher, and above all a man who stood firm on his beliefs. Socrates- a son of an Athenian stonemason and sculptor and a midwife started working as a Stonemason at a very young age but no one, including the boy himself, could have imagined that this young stonemason would later lay the foundation of philosophy and would be recognized as one of the best philosophers to be ever born. Socrates was born around 470 BC in […]

Public Office Is a Public Trust

By |June 1st, 2020|

Holding a position in a public office is a matter of great pride. This is something everyone wishes for but very few succeed in achieving it. In simple words, we can define a public office as an office that gives you the opportunity to work solely for the public; serve them, and interact with them. It is a place where you act as a public official who does not work for personal, commercial, or material gain but for the benefits of the whole society. In legal terms, it can be defined as ‘an office created by the constitution for a […]

Democracy is a Culture rather than a Process

By |May 31st, 2020|

The word democracy is not as common in its meaning as it is as a process today. The term first originated in the 5th century in Athens, is being used in so many parts of the world today with great pride and esteem. The word gets defined differently by different people but the majority explains it in words of Abraham Lincoln, ‘Government of the people by the people for the people’.  The involvement of people in this method is what makes it different from other forms of rulings.

The definition of democracy in its easiest form can be understood by […]

Lack Of Discipline a National Disaster

By |May 31st, 2020|

History has never provided us with an example of a nation or an individual who had flourished with an undisciplined lifestyle.  The developing countries see the developed nations with amazement wondering how they have managed to become a symbol of respect and attraction. Crediting the success of most peaceful nations like Iceland, Norway, or Denmark only to the government would be an unjustified thing to do. No matter how much rules the government enforces on you to follow, you can never grow unless and until you adopt them as disciplines.

Just like an aimless life that destroys individuals, undisciplined people […]

Lack of Discipline is the national disaster

Take the Stress Out of Starting a New School Year

By |September 12th, 2019|

For some students, it’s the need to get good grades. For others, it’s the homework. There’s also the pressure to be cool and fit in. Whatever the reasons, a school can be overwhelming for teenagers and even younger children with many feeling physically ill as a result of the stress. That’s worrying for any parent, especially if their child suffers from anxiety. With the first day of class on its way, it’s time to take some measures so your youngster can thrive throughout the academic year rather than fret.

Confront the Issue

Your child may not be able to recognize anxiety and […]

Let There be more Light at the Corridors of Worship Places

By |June 17th, 2019|

The critics of faith have been arguing that religion has harmed the world more than benefiting it.  Yes, it’s true that many of the major wars on the earth have been fought in the defense of religion as the famous Battle of Badr and Battle of Uhud in Islam or the Crusades in Christianity but relating the modern chaos to religion is not right. The difference between the old wars and the current is a matter of intention.

Muhammad (PBUH) fought not only in the name of religion but also against injustice, dishonesty, and oppression. Through the conquest of Makah, […]

Brains, Like Hearts, Go Where They Are Appreciated

By |January 29th, 2019|

Stephen R. Covey once beautifully wrote;

“Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be.”

This is the hard reality of life that man forgets bad experiences sooner or later but not bad words. Words hold such a power that leaves a long-lasting effect on the listener. If they are good, they will motivate the person to do more and if they are bad they will make him think over it for hours and months or years. In […]
