Shiite News: Allama Syed Sajid Ali Naqvi, Head of Shia Ulema Council, said in his message on the occasion of International Blood Donor Day and World Awareness Day on Elders’ Good and Bad Behaviours that in Islam there is no room for nationality, color and race, because of these solid policies, the rights of mankind get a long chapter of protection and humanity in our religion. The Qur’anic teachings are clear that cooperate on goodness and Surah Al-Maidah verse no. In verse 32, the Almighty Allah says that He who saves one human being saves all humanity. The fatwas of the great authorities also point out that blood transfusion has been declared desirable in order to save a person’s life and in some cases blood donation has been made obligatory as per the circumstances.
He further said that Islam also gives priority to the elder people in the provision of living facilities. Respect for the elderly is the basis of healthy traditions. An incident of Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) to give priority to the elderly. Provides the basis of It has been narrated from the Holy Prophet (saw) that “a young man who respects an old man due to his old age, Almighty Allah appoints a man for the young man who respects him in his old age.” Old homes around the world will be wiped out if they follow the rules and avoid good behavior with the elders, so there is a guidance in Islam that respect for elders strengthens families because the elders of the family are the pillars for your family.
Finally, Allama Sajid Ali Naqvi said that Islamic society forbids the teaching of good manners and abuse of elders. Only by following Islamic principles we can make our society and life beautiful and peaceful as well as a source of salvation in the hereafter.
