Happy World Teacher’s Day

Poiro’s dada and Bachoo’s dadi plus their foi and other family members. Happy Teacher’s day. Teaching is a noble profession.

Without a teacher you could not become anything in this world. It is a profession that moulds minds.  Unfortunately these days respect for teachers seem to be gone.  This article is focussing on respecting of teachers.

Sahl Ibn Sa’d As-saa’idi, may Allaah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam said, “O Allaah! Do not let me reach a time during which scholars are not followed, and honorable people are not respected”

Is this the time the Prophet(SAW) was talking about. We must show honor, respect, gratitude and appreciation to our teachers.

Respect your teachers

Some ways to show respect to teachers

Respect all your teachers. Islamic and secular
Ali(RA) , may Allaah be pleased with him, gave a comprehensive and complete advice concerning the rights of the teacher or scholar upon his student saying,
1. ‘One of the rights of the scholar is that you greet people generally and then greet him with a special greeting;
2. sit in front of him;
3. do not point with your hand in his presence, nor wink with your eye;
4. do not quote someone else who said opposite of what he said;
5. do not backbite anyone in his presence; do not backbite about him.
6. do not hunt for his faults, and if he makes a mistake accept his excuse;
7. dignify him for the sake of Allaah;
8. if he needs anything, rush before everyone to serve him;
9. do not whisper in his presence;
10.do not grasp him by his garment;
11. do not insist for answers when he becomes tired;
12. do not ever feel you have accompanied him enough, because he is like a palm tree from which people wait for fruits to drop from’.

This being said: Teachers must also lead by example and teach with love and understanding. If the time for discipline comes it should be to rectify the child and not out of anger and frustration.



World Teacher’s Day

Since 1994 World Teachers’ Day is celebrated on 5 October. It is an opportunity for UNESCO and Education International to celebrate the profession and to promote international standards for the teaching profession. The theme for this year is:Teachers for gender equality.

Despite the teaching profession being made up largely of women, inequality remains an issue. Even if measures to ensure equality are enshrined into the policies and constitutions of many states, for millions of female teachers, the goals remain unfulfilled. The teaching profession, both men and women, must unite and urge governments to implement their commitments. Let’s move from words to action: WTD is your day!
