In the country of Pakistan, anything is possible. It is truly heartwarming to see that for gaining knowledge and getting an education, age is just a number! An old man ‘Baba Ji’ in Malakand, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) proved this by taking admission to complete his BA Part-I studies in university. The vice-chancellor University of Malakand has taken upon himself to look after all the educational finances of the old man.
The old man, who preferred not to tell his name and keep his identity hidden, mentions that he was unable to get his bachelor’s degree at the right time; due to fewer finances and a poverty-stricken lifestyle. He adds that it is truly a miracle and graciousness of Allah, that he is capable of fulfilling his dreams.
In addition to that, Baba Ji is also thankful to Malakand University for providing him admission and a chance to polish his skills and be capable of learning and growing with the passage of time.
Wow! Each story that we get to hear and see is both inspiring and saddening at the same time. It makes us count our blessings and thank Allah, for the privileges, we are given. Simultaneously, we are also impressed with how the management of the University of Malakand is looking into the matter and helping this old man.
Overall, this story is motivational, to say the least. It makes us understand the beauty of how hard work and keen determination is the key. We learn about the importance of faith and firm belief. Age doesn’t define when we learn and when we stop learning. Education is a primary important part of life and even our religion shares its importance.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) states, “The position of only two persons is enviable; the person whom Allah bestowed wealth empowering him to spend it in the way of righteousness, and the person whom Allah gave wisdom with which he adjudges and which he teaches to others.”
Seeing the revolutionizing times, we are certain that Pakistan is going to prosper soon. All in all, no words can describe how amazed and proud we are of the University of Malakand that is providing this poor old man a chance to ace his BA Part-I exams. A revival of faith is all that our hearts need; during times of today.
Especially when people are faced with so many difficult issues. In addition, poverty-stricken life tends to hamper the peace of mind. We are glad that this old man is finally getting a chance to fulfill his dreams and got admission in university. We wish him the best of luck and a whole lot of success!
