It stands for the embodiment the religious fervour of the people, and hence on such buildings neither money nor attention is spared to make them grand and noble. On auspicious days such places are thronged with people. Special prayers are offered on these days, or the people in gala dress gather together to offer prayers in a body.

These places besides ministering to the religious needs of the people, also serve as a common meeting ground, and conduce to social and national solidarity. It is very essential that in mosques a calm and serene atmosphere should prevail, because it is only in such conditions that the true religious spirit can be engendered. Mosques should be neat, clean and comfortable, where one may be able to hold communion with God undisturbed.

It is a pity that in Pakistan most of our mosques are far from being what they ought to be. Men in charge who should be models of piety and religious zeal are in most cases corrupt, and cases are on record. in which their diabolical deeds make one's hair stand on end. These devils in human form ought not to be kept in such places at all; and very careful supervision on the part of the public is necessary to ensure the purity of such sacred places.

The income and expenditure and management of these places should be entirely under public control. Some Mosques are richly endowed, and the income is wasted in satisfying the low tastes of Maulvis and followers. Every one should be aware of these persons and take care that Mosques funds be used for charity purposes.
Mosques are made for the prayer and when the large number of people gathered together at the time of prayer, they presents a very picturesque and spiritual scene.

In Mosques, great care is taken to make the place impressive and comfortable. Art is employed in such places in the service of religion, and this is the real function of art. From the religious places, you can judge of the aesthetic and artistic tastes of the people. There mosques must be kept clean and beautiful.

Essay On A Visit To A Hill Station

Essay On A Visit To A Hill Station.It is a great pleasure to visit a hill station in summer. It was in these months that I visited the Murree hills. I went there to spend a part of my summer vacation. To enjoy this visit fully, I also invited some close friends. We left Lahore for Murree by bus and reached Rawalpindi at about eleven o'clock. As we knew that Murree was a costly place, we purchased many things of daily need from Rawalpindi.

We reached Murree at about 3 p.m. the same day. It was a fine cloudy day and the weather was very pleasant. We put up at an old hotel, called the 'Sunny View'. After having rested there for a while, we came out to have a view of the hills. It was a new experience for or one was in level with the door of the other. This looked very interesting. The valley below the hills looked like a great cup full of beautiful flowers and flowing streams. On the first day we walked to the Kashmir Point and enjoyed ourselves with its beautifuVview.

Well-dressed ladies and gents crowded the Mall cafes and tea-houses. I wondered how so many educated and cultured people had come together at such a far off hill station at one and the same time. In the evening, when we were returning to our hotel, it grew dark and a gentle shower of rain began to fall. Wee hurried back and reacheitto our hotel in ten minutes. Then we changed our dress as it had become quite wet due to rain. The night was quite cold and I hadto cover myself with a blanket.

Throughout the night it continued raining, but when it was dawn, the rain stopped. We were very glad to see this sudden change of weather. After our breakfast we went out to see the Sanitorium down in the valley. This is a beautiful little spot situated in a fine valley. There are thick forests of pine trees, and the entire area is green and charmirg. There are also many fruit gardens on the slopes. On our way back we crossed two fast- flowing streams. The water of these streams was very cold and clean, but it was not so deep.

After three day's stay in the hills we returned to Lahore, which was as hot and dry as we hand left it. Nayhow, our shorts visit to the Murree Hills was a good change and I shall ever remember the beautiful "Sunny View, and the Kashmir Point. These were perhaps the most well-spent days of my life.

The farmers had sown the winter crop and were watering the plants carefully. I had never come across so much green space anywhere in the city:

The bus stopped near a pond which was giving out a stinking smell, I covered my nose with hand-kerchief. We were to reach the school. The lane was covered with mud. As we started. some cows and buffaloes came from behind. They ran into one another and might have trampled me but I was saved due to my alertness.

An old man was sitting on a cot smoking hookah. Some children were playing around him. It looked as if life had come to a standstill. When I requested a villager to guide me to the school, he asked a small boy to take us there. There was a small building with only two rooms. The students were sitting on coil mats. They were writing on their wooden plates called Takhties. There was dullness all around: I could not hear noise of any type except the barking of a few dogs.

• There were a few well-dressed young-men who told me that they were employed in the city. They had come there to visit their • relatives.. I was told that there were no . marketing and clinical facilities in the village. I have decided to work for these villages when I osoW up.
