The Guiding Light

May 2024

In the heart of the golden age of knowledge and wisdom, nestled within the bustling lanes of ancient Arabia, there lived a man whose legacy would forever be etched in the annals of history. This man was Hazrat Ali (RA), a figure revered not only for his bravery and justice but also as a beacon of knowledge and enlightenment. His life and teachings continue to inspire generations, from the young minds of children to the ambitious spirits of the youth. 
    Once upon a time, in a town brimming with curiosity and a thirst for knowledge, there lived a group of children and young adults, called the Curious Students, who were on a quest for a mentor. They had heard tales of great scholars and warriors, but their hearts yearned for a guide who embodied both wisdom and valour. It was during this search that they came across the story of Hazrat Ali (RA), a Companion of the Prophet (PBUH), known as the “Gateway to Knowledge.” Intrigued by this title, they delved deeper into his life, uncovering stories that painted a picture of a man of unparalleled intellect and profound wisdom. They learned of his eloquence, which could silence the most formidable of opponents, and his understanding of the Quran and Hadith, which illuminated the path for those who sought guidance. 
    One of the stories that resonated most with the Curious Students was how Hazrat Ali (RA) emphasized the importance of knowledge over wealth. He famously said, "Knowledge enlivens the soul,” teaching them that the riches of the mind were far more valuable than the transient wealth of the world. This lesson struck a chord with the youth, who lived in a time where material success often overshadowed the pursuit of intellectual growth. Inspired, the Curious Students decided to embody Hazrat Ali’s teachings in their daily lives. They established a circle of students whom they shared knowledge, from the sciences to the arts, embracing the diversity of learning. They discussed the importance of justice and equality, the solutions of which Hazrat Ali (RA) found, and strived for its implementation. 
    Hazrat Ali (RA) was known for his humility and kindness, treating everyone equal with respect and compassion. This inspired the children and youth to look beyond the superficial differences, fostering a sense of unity and brotherhood. The impact of Hazrat Ali’s teachings was profound. The town, once divided by petty differences transformed into a unity. The children and youth themselves became beacons of enlightenment, inspiring others to embark on their own journey of intellectual and spiritual growth. Years have passed; the legacy of Hazrat Ali (RA) continues to thrive in the hearts. They have learnt that true success lay not in the accumulation of wealth or power, but in the richness of the soul nurtured by wisdom and understanding, true to the saying of Hazrat Ali (RA).
