Nowadays we talk so much about politics, terrorism, security, etc that these topics are actually shadowing the basic issues which we are facing in our society. And among all, one thing which really annoys me is the fee to a tutor. I’m not talking about general or subjective tutions. Rather I’m more concerned about the fees which we pay to a tutor of “Quran”.
Friends I’m not aware about other countries but the trend in my country towards these teachers is really not so human. We are ready to pay thousands and thousands bucks to an English teacher, maths or science teacher but when it comes to the payment of a “Quran” tutor we start making excuses. Excuses like “Oh there should not be any fees for teaching Quran”, “Quran teacher should not ask for money” and if by chance Quran tutor openly ask his fees then we start using bad words for him Astagfirullah.
I agree that there should not be any fees for teaching Quran. It’s obligatory on every Muslim to read and teach others. But for some people its there livelihood. Some Quran tutor struggles so much to take care of there family. They are forced to do two different kind of jobs to provide bread and butter to there family. Just because they know the kind of fees which we pay to him is not all sufficient. Friends we really need to put ourselves in there shoes and see the situation. I strongly feel that insufficient income through Quran teaching is one of the reasons that parents or in fact children themselves don’t want to get an Islamic degree. I know it’s sad but that’s what our mentality is becoming. We are running more towards materialistic world and forgetting our deen. Let’s stop this tradition. If we are really want to make a change in our society let’s start supporting such great teachers, scholars. Let’s teach our children more about Quran. Let’s pray Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to increase our children as well as our knowledge in Quran. Let’s start helping each other in any ways and teach the same to our coming generation.
