THE YOUTH RESPONSIBILITY
Assalaamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh
Dear muslim brothers!
When we talk about youngsters, we often find in many articles and we ourselves even witness he great role of youth participation in developing, favoring, and supporting the development of nation. They are the hope of nation who will carry out the struggle for the sake of brighter future of the country. Similarly, they are at the same time, the hope of Islmaic religion that will strive for the sake of Islamic teaching in the next, maintain the Islamic laws, who will safeguard the muslim young generation at large from influence of destructive western style of life, who will be leaders for the next. It was yelled as: TODAY IS YOUNG TOMORROW WILL BE A LEADER.
This statement encourages us to pay attention to the young existence in the future. By knowing all the facts we realize, how important role the young have for the future. The youths supposedly symbolize the force that never becomes weak quickly. For this reason, the former president of Indonesia Soekarno has once said: “GIVE ME TEN YOUTH WOULD SHAKE THE WORLD”. Form this statement we are can sum up that Soekarno appreciated the young people more than the old. Why: because they play significant roles and have great potency and treat energy that can be prided.
Dear muslim generation!
There for our religion joins us to be flexible muslim leaders for society who ultimately have to devote themselves for the development of muslims community at large. Ironically, in this sophisticated era we witness the conducts of young people are always against the Islamic laws. We pay attention to many young people who are not aware of their education and will be more sad if we see our muslim brothers in our country behave badly and they intentionally avoiding Islamic teachings to follow western culture. We cannot imagine and describe what is going to happen in the next time if all the young people are careless in this responsibility of nation developing and religion establishing depend on us. By those considerations we should be very cautious with any destructive western culture that would enter Islamic teaching.
My brothers! Last but not the least, I should like to call you to prepare our generation in order to be able to replace the old in the future. And I hope you and all muslim brothers wheresoever’s they are to abstain from bad action and furthermore we have to develop our skill and potency to teach the bright future.
I think it’s time for me to finish this speech begging your pardon, finally I say …
Wassalaamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh.
