We may have advantages over others in one or more specific areas of our lives; but in other areas we may be behind. In the minds and consciences of the people of not-so-progressive societies, this concern exists, and the question arises as to whether or not there are people or persons whom we can improve our lives with by just looking at them and adapting their thinking and behavior pattern. Therefore, human beings in the longitudinal movement on the path of history, have always followed each other, got inspired by each other or by gaining experience from each other’s’ lives and have colored and prospered their lives. That is, a generation has learned and used the experiences and savings of the previous generation. We may not find a person who has not chosen a person or persons as a role model in his / her personal and professional life and has not benefited from their experiences in his / her personal life. Although the patterns of different generations differ at different times and can be changed according to time and circumstances; but modeling itself is undeniable. As society moves in the direction of development and progress, we will see the multiplicity and diversity of moral and behavioral patterns. This diversity and multiplicity in itself is an ape and happy action and paves the way for the growth and development of most people in society. The old and aged body of the earth has carried the name and image of many free men and women in its soul and has played an eternal role. Philanthropists were a model of courage, bravery, sobriety and inspiration of freedom and awareness, not only for their time and generation, but also for the future, and created a good image for us by taking every step with full caution on the path of life. In the present age and in the world we live in, there are many who stand as a master in the passage of our age and generation and teach us the lessons of life. So their experiences in doing things, making decisions and, thus, making their brilliant record makes them a model for our lives. It is enough to look at the list of well-known and famous people on the pages of history and times, and according to our goals use their functions and methods to reach a healthy world of humanity.Ali Mahdawe, Dari Literature Teacher
(An Episode from Empowerment Sessions) First Tip:In the empowerment, we consider every human being as an independent “being”. This “existence” is independent of everything else, including its own will and desire, independent of anyone else. Man has an “inner power” that we call “self”, “soul” or “heart”. The “self” of every human being, the point of gravity of the universe, means “whatever it is”. Existence begins with this “self”, get formed over this point and becomes valid. Every human being judge everything on the scale of “self” and in the validity of “self”, whether it is good or bad, far or near, light or heavy, high or low. In our relationships with other people, whenever we neglect this point, the authority to judge and evaluate shifts form our “self” to the “other.” In this case, we wait to see how the “other” judges us and what value and virtue he assigns to each of our actions, words and characteristics. As a result, the cognition and value we place on ourselves and our actions and characteristics fluctuates differently in relationship with every other human being. Instability, hesitation and lack of self-confidence are also due to this situation. By validating and respecting the authority to judge and value ourselves, we achieve stability both in recognizing and valuing the “self” and in recognizing and valuing the “other.” Reaching this stage of self-esteem creates a beautiful and pleasant feeling, based on which we reach “self-esteem” and “self-authority”, thus, find ourselves great, boundless ad honorable. Second Tip:In the history of Islam, Khadija’s “reality” was no different from other women, including the wives of the prophet. The difference was in the “perspective” on which Khdija validated her “self” and “position” in relation to others. For example, Khadija attributed her position and authority to everyone, including Muhammad (PBUH). Khadija hired Muhammad (PBUH), trained him and asked reports on his work. Khadija encouraged Mohammad (PBUH) and rewarded him. Mohammad proposed to her. Later when he came down from the mangrove cave, completing the meditations, Khadija opened the gate for him, gave him shelter and consolation, clothed him, accepted his invitation, supported him in front of his enemies and opponents, and never doubted him on his prophecy. Khadija was no jealous of anyone’s relationship with Mohammad (PBUH) and of Mohammad (PBUH)’s relationship with anyone else, and Mohammad (PBUH), at the height of his youth, beauty, power and social influence, was between the age of 25 and 50 or older. Because of that, he always looked at her as a “wife”, “life companion”, “owner”, “guardian”, “shelter” and “supporter”. As long as he lived, not only he didn’t show interest in any woman, but it never occurred to him that he could find someone better than Khadija. Khadija was over sixty-five years old when she died, and Mohammad (PBUH) was over fifty years old. After Khadija, Mohammad (PBUH) was the same Mohammad (PBUH). There was no change in his “existence” and “reality” as a man and a human being; but the women who sided with him saw him in a different “position” and with a different “look.” Aisha was young. At the suggestion of his father, Abubakr, he married Mohammad (PBUH); but she always saw Mohammad (PBUH) as a “prophet” and a “great man” and, most importantly, a “husband” (according to the culture and traditions of Arab society) and treated him from the same point of view and form the same position. So were the other women of the prophet, one of whom was, for example, UM-e- Salma; a widow who lost her husband in Abyssinia and returned to Medina without a guardian, and Mohammad (PBUH) married her. The other was Hafsa, the daughter of Umar, who is said to be unwilling to marry him because of his morals and qualities, and Omar complained to the Prophet, and the Prophet suggested that he be willing to marry her if he wished. In the same way, one was a prisoner of war and the other was in a different situation, which, in any case, felt that marrying a prophet would bring him dignity. This is why it can be said that the prophet had a “wife” who was Khadija. The rest were all his “women”. The “spouse” is validated in the relation of one human being to another; but “woman” is a reality that is validated in the context and judgments governing the relations, culture and traditions of society. The dignity of a “spouse” is a person’s relationship with another human being; but the dignity of “woman” is defined by the social, cultural and religious conditions and relations of society. Third Tip:If we want to avoid self-doubt, humiliation, and insult in our relationships with others, the first step is to validate the “self” as a reference for judgment and evaluation. In other words, we should always look from the “self” to the “other”, not from the “other” to the “self”. Remember that no one else judges and values us as much as we love ourselves. Whatever we do, even if it is in exchange for the wages we do for another, we must define it as “our” work and take care of it, just like the most important thing we do. Aziz Royesh
The period in which we live is a completely different period. An age of technology: the technology that has involved our children and adults alike. All that we know today is that technology has left us with a sense of alienation from family members and even our children. Staying away from children in the present age causes us to have a kind of crisis within the family: the crisis we call “Indecorous Upbringing”. This misbehavior, misconduct, even the alienation of parents form their children, or vice versa, results from the misuse of new technology. We must be friends with our children in order to raise them properly and humanely. Friendship in the home and family space apart from being a parent makes the family space more intimate and allows it for our children to talk about their problems outside or in his or her relationships with others. The closer the relationship between family members, the greater the scope gets ready for emergence of a professional dialogue, and our children share their problems with us without concern. Instead of trying to recover, they wallow in their sadness and, thus, experience more failure. Adjust the family environment so that your children can share their words with you without fear of retribution. Families who have a friendly relationship with their children call their mother’s daughter a friend and their father’s son a companion and turn to them for solving their problems. This group of children and adults are less at risk of social harm. Because they are not afraid of being punished at home and their families are a stronghold that they take refuge in when they face problems. At this time, children and young people feel a sense of power in them and do not give up to any social demands. This group has less social harm. Why? Because they feel that the family will be a strong source of power and support for them, they are less secretive and seek more advice. Khadija Sharifi, Pre-School Teacher
I entered Marefat at seventh grade. It was indeed my entrance into a completely new and lovable world. I found my best friend here. My best memories were formed here. I learned to compose poems here. Learning the art of painting and sometimes joining some of the student councils have sweetened my memories of Marefat. Before that, I had always dreamed of studying at Marefat, and after entering the space of Marefat, I was eager to finish my studies here.The first day I entered this whole new and lovable world was an exciting and enjoyable day. A day I will never forget. I'm glad I was able to be there to this day; where we get to know many different people, where we feel we are getting closer to our dreams with each passing day. Yes, Marefat is a place that gives in the heart of a person the passion to study, write, study, perform cultural works, be active, important, useful, and valued more than any other place. When we talk about Marefat, we are actually talking about a body that has nurtured and revived thousands of souls. When we talk about Marefat, we are actually talking about thousands of students who have learned the alphabet of life here.I feel that studying at Marefat gives a person a double spirit for life. During the years I have been studying here, I have had some interesting and memorable memories: sometimes bitter and sometimes sweet. I am glad that my family sent me to this new and loving world so that I can learn the best lessons ever from here and get a few steps closer to my goals and aspirations. I am indebted to my father and mother because they are the reason for all the successes and beauties of my life.I extend my heart wishes and gratitude to both of them who struggled with all the challenges and obstacles in their lives and gifted me the opportunity to learn my lessons here. I am happy to have them as life companions by my side. Also a world of thanks to all my kind teachers who patiently taught us life lessons, bestowed us the spirit of reading and writing. During these few years that I have studied at Marefat, I feel happy and have learned the most interesting things here. I am happy and proud that I walked the path to Marefat with a white chador and blue dress.Regards.Anahita Mandegar, 10th B Girls, Marefat High School
Spring is a beautiful season. It is a season of hard work, effort and struggle. Also a season full of challenges and trials. I well remember the cloudy days when the sun did not shine on us and nature faded in its absence. Besides, spring is the most amazing season of the year. There is a strange relationship between spring and the constituent letters of spring, bahar, in Dari (b, a, h, a, r). In "b" of spring, the green leaves of trees (“b” as “Barg” means leaves in Dari), in "a’s” of spring, clean and pleasant air (“a” as “air” in Dari), "h" of spring, the blue and “high” sky, and in "r" of spring, I can “read” the colors of nature clearly. Maybe spring has come to represent the Day of Judgment for us and to say that it is not difficult to raise on the day after death.Yes, spring is the resurrection of nature. It is a season that fills the trees with beautiful flowers and is decorated with colorful flowers. As the seemingly dried-up trees turn green in the spring, as the dry and yellow plants wear green, and as the plains and meadows turn pink, I fell more and more in love with the Mother Nature. Yes, spring is coming to give my tired body a hope for life and belief in the future. Congratulations Bahar, my beloved SPRING!Raihana Ahmadi, 7th Grade- D Section, Girls’ School
If we look at the case with the naked eye and without considering our headaches, we all have a tired, longing face and many years of complications behind our smiling masks. Our generation, the modern generation, is stuck with traditional punishments and encouragements, and sometimes between the modern and the old, technology and older ideas, brought up with people who have entered the new century only with their bodies but whose minds wander around through the labyrinths of the early centuries.Our generation is a generation in which our mothers have suffocated their youth, the radiance and softness of their hair, the passion and madness of their daughters, in the midst of biases of prejudice and sexism, of which they are violent, wrinkled creatures, and caring people with eyes. It is dimly lit that sometimes shine in the wave of feminine and maternal emotions and tenderness of love, and our fathers who did not have children and were caressed on the days when they should be caressed, slapped with violence, patriarchy and the seal of "the man does not cry" on the face they have descended, and out of them little creatures and fanatics are amazed, with thoughts that they themselves sometimes do not know how to emerge out from them. This is how our son and daughter are made: male and female.Our fathers and mothers are burning with thirst for kindness and love, and they live and work only relying on their fatherly and motherly love for us. They do not know how to be emotional, they do not know how to remember their birthdays like literate parents. However, we should not expect someone to celebrate their birthday from someone whose birthday is not clear.Tradition in the family where they grew up ruled that the boy should die after the age of seven, in order to give birth to a man inside him, and the girl from childhood, having the taste of “jing jing chori” “bracelets” on their hands, should cultivate in herself the sign of being a woman. We are a surviving generation out of such a generation: we must be careful of our expectations from them!Let me and you not to be like this, let me and you learn to live well! If we want to study a major at university that we love, we must study in such a way that we do not lose the breath of life in the face of its challenges, we must study and learn in a way that we do not forget, we must laugh.. Let me and you not let the next generation of us suffocate their rights so that no one listens to the pain of their hearts or feels that someone has been ridiculed. If we become doctors, we will learn in such a way that the children who come to us will not only heal their bodies, but also purify their souls from our treatment, and take with them a great lesson from the greatness of my thoughts and yours. Let me and you caress the children of the future who are to come and become good parents, and let the future children not experience the childhoods of you and me.Masoma Nasiri, 12th Grade
