Essay on The Importance of Peace in the World

The state of freedom from war or violence is called "Peace". It is the state which can make this world like a heaven. The importance of peace in the world can be described by short comparison of war and peace.
  1. War is destructive, peace is constructive.
  2. War destroys, peace preserves.
  3. War calls in beast in man, peace makes man civilized.
  4. War creates hate, peace promotes love and friendship.
  5. War causes bloodshed, peace brings progress and prosperity.
People long for peace and raise their hands in prayers. The victories of peace are no less than the victories of war. In the first place, peace is indispensable for human progress. All the mighty inventions of science and the creations of art are the victories of peace. Peace gives us the message of universal brotherhood and friendship. Humanity cannot survive without love and peace.

Islam is a religion of peace. It gives clear ideas and the best reforming laws about social and political systems. The great purpose of Islam is to produce an everlasting state of peace in the world. Islam gives also very clear ideas about the peaceful individual life. Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be upon him) showed practically the examples of peace. He always prayed for his enemies. After the conquest of Makkah, he forgave all his enemies and tried to create a peaceful atmosphere there. He established a harmonious society in Madina. Islam teaches the lessons of mutual respect but it also gives lessons to fight against the evils and to establish the state of peace after making struggle, war and efforts.

Is war necessary for peace? it is a very difficult question to answer. Before answering it man must see it ins and outs. If war is necessary, it is a necessary evil. Its evil is sometimes concealed for a time by its glamour and excitement, but when war is seen in its reality, there is a very little glory about it. At its best, it is a hideous calamity in the great wars, millions of men, women and children were killed, or died of disease, famine and untold sufferings.

After the event of 11th September, and the destruction of the World Trade Center in the United States of America, war to win peace has become more expeditious. The American establishment has tried to interfere the politics of the countries which are considered as working to use their energies for warfare. The destruction and killing in Afghanistan and Iraq is the part of war to win peace. The American establishment calls their struggle is for the end of nuclear trend in the world but it is making the exploitation of human rights. The war to win peace is actually a devilish plot to destroy the power of those who are trying to get their basic rights.

War is not necessary to win the peace. The peace can be established by showing great moral values and by providing the equal rights for everyone. So the world could be made a peaceful and happy place. Islam teaches the lessons of peace and tolerance. Islam is the religion with the greatest ideas about human rights. It gives a complete description of duties and rights. It gives the teaching of mutual respect and it provides all such qualities, if they are implemented rightly than no war is needed to establish the peace in the world.

Essay on Neighbours Good or Bad

Some people have had neighbors; most have indifferent neighbors, while a few others have good neighbors. We are among the remaining few who are fortunate to have a noble family living on one side of them and equally unfortunate to be plagued with a set of mean people on the other.

There are three boys and two girls in the family living on the left hand, side of our house. They go to the same school as my own brother and sisters. They seldom quarrel among themselves or with others. Their father is a merchant while their mother is a housewife.

Their parents treat us just like their own children. Whenever their mother prepares a special dish, we are sure to get a share of it. Their father is even kinder. His pockets are always full of chocolates and other sweets. These are given to any child who greets him politely. We often address him as 'Uncle Chocolate.' Much as our parents love us, we like to be in our neighbor’s house more than in our own. My youngest sister, one day, asked my mother. Mummy why don't we all go and live in Uncle Chocolate's houses This was a genuine expression of the love we have for our good neighbors.

The neighbors living on the right of our house are different we don't like them at all. The owner has a number of wives. I do not think any of their numerous children goes to school. Our parents have strictly forbidden us to mix with them. If ever we happen to go near them, we are sure to be abused, even hit. Having heard their mothers making fluent use of vulgar words, they have added a lot of indecent words to their own vocabulary.

The women in the house are always quarreling amongst themselves. Often these domestic quarrels end in blows and shoe fighting. Like most other women, they are quick to make peace after a quarrel. But they cannot keep the peace for long.

Whenever they clean their deposit the dirt and dust so gathered, in front of our house generally, our mother ignores this meanness, but, if ever she protests, the whole army of them come out to fight. It is only on such occasions that they are really united.

The husband is a notorious gambler and drunkard. He is seldom at home, but, whenever he is, he beats up his wives and children unreasonably and mercilessly.
Sometimes we think of moving into some other house in the town, but our love for 'Uncle Chocolate' is too strong to let us do so.

Essay on Place and Status of Women in Islam

Islam gives great laws about social system, In Islamic rules, the rights of individuals are kept in first place. The Quran declares that the best act is good treatment to women. According to Quran and the sayings of the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him), the status and the rights of women are cleared.

  • And the believers, men and women are protecting friends. (Surah Toba)
  • The Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) says ‘God commandeth you treat women well, for they are your mother, daughters, sisters and aunts.”
  • Allah says in the Holy Quran, ‘This is the duty of every Muslim man and woman to acquire knowledge and educate.”


Woman in Islam is highly respected as wife, mother, daughter and sister. Before Islam, birth of a female child was highly resented and repented. They were burned alive. In fact it is Islam that has presented the idea of women’s honour and rights. To secure strong economic position for them, Islam has given full property rights to women. Islam has given all the social rights to women like freedom, choice of partner, good education and inheritance.

Education is equally important for both boys and girls. Basically education is a universal need, rather right of every citizen, Education is an equal right of women. Girls are said to be the light of home. If they are educated, they will carry the light wherever they go. If the women are educated, they can prove themselves as better mothers and wives. They can educate the children and have great influence on them. They can teach them the respect for the superiors, the teachers arid the taws of country. We should pray to God that a time will come when everyone without the difference of sexes learn the advantage of education.

In limitation of the west, our women too have demanded equal rights with men in every field of life and are even trying to adopt the fashions of men. They want equal seats in assemblies, equal number of posts in the government service, equal chance of freedom and movement and even equal rights in domestic life. Many of them shun the responsibilities of motherhood and prefer to remain unmarried. They are working in factories, offices and even in the army. Thus the whole Eastern concept of "Womanhood" being revolutionized and the new ideas are being represented to us is the name of and civilization, Islam recognizes the equality of the two sexes fully well hut equality should not be understood to mean the tasks of the two sexes are alike.

After the final examination, there are three responsibilities in case of girl students to study further, to stay at home or to launch out into a career. The girls who want to adopt a career, many avenues are open. Advertising Is a field that can appeal to girls with Imagination. There are unlimited opportunities for commercial girl artist in this field. For the girls with a passion for books, a library would be the Ideal place to work, Basic training I required but the pay is very handsome, of a girl has the ability to put down her thoughts in words, journalism can prove a rewarding career, For science students who want to make their use of their knowledge, research would be good Idea. Laboratories and research institutions welcome them.

There are many other professions open for girls. They can become hostesses in some airlines. They can work as Family Planning Officers. They can serve in the field of Insurance as Field Officers.

Essay on How I Spend My Pocket Money

There are very a few parents who really understand the value of pocket money to their children. Some parents think that the pocket money is necessary so that a child may not go hungry at the time of the day other thinks' that it keeps children from stealing. But the real purpose of pocket money is to train the young people in the very important art of saving and spending.

Some children get a little pocket money daily their parents do not trust them with a large sum, fearing that they may lose or miss-spend it. But my parents do not treat me so shabbily they know very well that I can take care of my money as well as anybody else. I get Rs. 10.00 a month for my pocket money.

On the first day of every month, as soon as I receive9 my pocket money, I rush to the post office with my savings account book. I deposit Rs. 2.00 into my account. To date, Rs. 120,000 stands of my credit. Formerly, I put into my account only whatever amount to of money I had saved by the end of the month but often I had nothing left by that time. Experience has already taught me that a man of limited income has to force himself to save a little for an emergency otherwise he will have to borrow.

I go to the pictures only once in a while, Usually, I go to a cheap matinee on Saturday, or Sunday but if, on a particular weekend, there is not a good film being shown as a cheap matinee. I stay at home. I prefer going to a cheap matinee not only because it is cheaper than a first-run film, but also because, at a cheap matinee, I can occupy a better seat for less money than at an ordinary show. I visit our school canteen almost daily but I never do so more than once a day as most of schoolmates does. I do not spend lavishly at, the canteen. For after all, I do not go there for a meal. The proper place for meals is the home, and it is good to eat a meal only at its fixed time, I go to the canteen for refreshments only, and I never buy any food or drink that I cannot pay for easily. If, on a certain day, I do not feel particularly thirsty or hungry, I do not visit the canteen at all. I make a point of never buying on credit or, borrowing money from my friends in the school or outside. Nor do I lend money to others'. 'If I can afford it, I do give a little to charity.

Whatever money I have not spent by the end of the month goes to my library fund. If the book I want to buy costs mere than the amount I have in hand, I wait for a month or so more, until I have saved the necessary amount. If it is necessary to buy the book at once, I borrow the balance from my mother, and return it to her in a few easy installments.

Essay on How I Pass My Sunday Holiday

On Sunday, I get up early in the morning and go out for a walk in the country. On returning from the walk, I have my breakfast, take my books and shut myself up in a remote corner of the house. I revised my lessons very Sunday.

My brothers and sisters do not appreciate my habit of poring over books on Sunday, and often make it a point to disturb my studies. My mother, also, is of their opinion and often advises me to go out and play for a time and let examination take care of them. My younger brothers and sisters, particularly, enjoy my self-imposed imprisonment. They keep on annoying me by peeping through the window panes, or through the keyholes in the doors of my study. My father is the only person in the family, who understands my point of view, but he is not often at home.

Sometimes, a few visitors come to visit us. Most of them are office workers like my elder brother and sisters. To them Sunday is a day for rest, playing cards, and paying visits. For one reason or another, some of them knock at my door. I have, willingly or unwillingly, to receive them. Luckily for me, these visitors nearly always arrive about lunch time, and are called into the dining room as soon as the meal is ready. I go on with my work, for this is the only time in the day when I can have to peace and quiet necessary for doing my lessons.I always have my lunch after all the other has returned to the drawing room for the post-lunch game of cards.

While this is going on, I leave for the park near my house. At this time of the day, I hardly meet my pleasures seekers there. I spread a mat under a shady tree, and sit there absorbed in my studies. When I am tired of sitting on the mat, I climb up a tree for a change. I perch comfortably on a branch and continue reading aloud or in silence, as I please. I leave the park at 5pm when crowds of visitor begin to arrive there.

At home, I find the dinner ready after dinner. I dress up properly and, accompanied by my brothers and sisters, go out for a walk or to the pictures. On returning home, I revise my lesson for another hour or so. I go to bed before 10pm.

Essay on How Tourism Can Be Developed

It is agreed on all hands that tourism is beneficial to the countries visited by foreign travelers. It helps earn foreign exchange. Many people find employment because of it. It also enables the country to be better known abroad. Let us consider what measures may be taken to 'develop the tourist trade of a country.

A tourist's first concern is accommodation. It should be decent, easily available, and, though not all tourist care for this, cheap. It is necessary therefore to put up hotels and inns at all places likely to be visited by tourists. These hotels should be of internationally approved standards and so should be the services supplied by them.

His next concern is transport. Very few tourists, is any, bring along their own transport. They need fast, comfortable, and reliable means of transport. Buses, taxis, and trains should all, be available. They should be Well kept and available whenever they are necessary or at a fairly short notice. In hot countries, it may be necessary to provide air-conditioned coaches, taxi, and buses for the tourists. As this may be very expensive to do, the governments themselves should maintain such vehicles or subsidies their maintenance by travel agencies.

The tourist usually come to see sights, so stay at health resorts, or to pursue further studies. Pamphlets and hand-outs listing such facilities should be brought out and distributed in foreign countries through the diplomatic mission abroad. The national tourist organization should take whatever other measures they can take to advertise the places of tourist' interest in their countries. This could be done by means of short documentary films displayed abroad or through advertisement in newspapers' and magazines having international readership. Historical monuments should be kept in proper repair and all possible information about them including view-cards, etc. should be available on site for the visitor to read, see, or buy.

But it is people that can attract tourist most of all. Taxi drivers, for example can create such good impression on the tourist they carry about that the tourist will go home and plead with their compatriots to visit the country concerned. Poor services rendered will only lead to fewer tourists arriving in future. The 'prices of goods in the shops patronized by tourists and the behaviour of shopkeeper, salesmen and saleswomen are equally important factors in the development of tourists trade. Availability of fully qualified guides who know the language of group they are taking round is important, too. The customs and immigration authorities at the sea-ports or airports can annoy or please tourist. Hoteliers and their employees too can give the tourists good time they deserve.

And much more important than all these people are the common people. They do no direct business with tourists. But they must remember that these people are paying guests who add immensely to the national wealth of their countries. Tourism should not be the concern only of the people who directly deal with tourists but of everybody in the country. Its importance should be brought to the notice of everybody.
