I am still 16 – OKAY 85%

Standard

“Keep a diary, and someday it’ll keep you.”

– Mae West

What a saying, Today daily prompts, forced me to open my diary when I was 16. I bring it out and start reading. I read it for about 1 hour and just forget why I brought it out from my old bag.

My diary, kept me, preserved me in my sixteen very well. I smiled and get sad also while reading the random pages. Okay let’s say I am 85% still like 16 years old Afsheen, Surprisingly though! And I am glad that the lost 15% was not worth enough to keep at all.

I had taken some clicks from my diary, I want you all to meet the 16 years old Afsheen by yourself!

Every second turning us in Gold

Standard

Daily Prompt: Generation XYZ

Think about the generation immediately younger or older than you. What do you understand least about them — and what can you learn from them?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us AGE.

………………

Where I live seeing someone older and younger than you is quite interesting and for some quite weird.

We have our special tradition and values to treat and manage AGE difference. In Asian culture, especially Indo-Pak culture, we stay dependent on our parents until we get married and even after that we don’t like taking decisions without their positive response and happiness. We value their suggestions and we are always afraid of their anger and sadness.

Mostly we live in joint family system, grandparents, aunt, uncles, and cousins all together until the house become really small for living. This is the major reason of getting separate houses. This family pattern teaches us a very unique way of living which is hardly seen in western culture.

How to listen and obey elders?

How to live in a joint family system?

How to share things with family?

How to tolerate anger?

How to stay friendly and happy?

How to keep secrets: P? hehehe

And so many things ….

Also, Islam taught us the perfect way of treating older and younger ages.

For Parents in Quran:

“… And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honor. And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: “My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small.” (17:23, 24)

For Elder’s in Hadith:

Imam Ali (AS) – Prophet Cousin and 4th Caliph maintained: “The advice of old-men is dearer than the bravery of young men.”

Anas (companion of Prophet) reports from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W), as saying: “If a young man shows respect to an old-man on account of his old-age, Allah will create for him at his old-age someone who will show him respect, too.”

For Orphan Children:

Imam Ali son of Abu Talib (as) was always attentive to orphans especially to those of the martyrs. He used to visit them and sit, chat and play with them He used to take care of their education and training. He would strive to solve their difficulties and always offered them guidance and advice. He would bring them gifts and, if they were poor, he would respectfully provide their expenses.

Parents deities for Children in light of Quran:

Children have the right to be fed, clothed, and protected until they reach adulthood.

Children must have the respect, to enjoy love and affection from their parent.

Children have the right to be treated equally,in terms of financial gifts.

……

Generation to generation we are passing our Islamic and Traditional customs and practices, and though many things are modified and altered but still the root are old and same. Most of the people in my society including myself thinks that they have changed and modern values has taken away the old one but sooner or later in our lives we caught ourselves in doing the same old practice which our Parents and grandparents do. It’s in our blood, in our nature.

And i believe Old is Gold and every second turning us in gold.
