According to the recent data released by Atlas of sustainable development goals (2017) that states, the world’s population is young: 42% people are under age of 25. If we talk of India, India is considered to be the youngest country in terms of its number of youths; therefore, India has a massive, huge and surplus opportunity to harness the potential of this multitude of youth that will in turn prove beneficial for India’s social, political, economic and cultural development.
The young generation is in fact an asset that if invested properly can bring a massive change in almost all fields of life and will further push the societies as well as the country they belong to, to the higher standards. In fact, in contemporary times, the young generations have got such a great importance, that the future and the destiny of nation is now entirely dependent on the skills and the strength of youths. In almost all the Countries of the world from time to time, Young generation has been playing an important role in defining the destiny and the fate of nation they belong to. It is said that if any country or nation wantso develop, then it is essential for young people to have positive thinking. Although a young man is said to be the architect of the nation, he has certain responsibilities as well, he can’t be called an architect of a nation unless he has put his position into practice. The need of the hour is to make the best out of the potential and strength they have got. Science has made a great progress in the last few decades and has an important role to play when it comes to the skill development among young generations. At the same time social enthusiasm among the youth has decreased particularly with the arrival of digital devices that have completely restricted and manipulated their use of mind, which is unfortunate. Today’s youth are leaving their responsibilities behind, and is absorbed in his private life. Today the younger generation is going to fall, which is tragic. In today’s generation, the moral decline is at its peak. Education is becoming more and more common, but moral declines are taking its toll.
Knowledge however plays a vital role in shaping humanity and moral character. That’s where the negative efects of the body are coming from. Although knowledge works as light, it is getting darker day by day .Parents who are an important asset and it is our duty to serve them on humanitarian and moral basis, but in modern times, their rights are also being discriminated ,even less attention is paid to them. In fact, today’s generation lacks the light of morality and character. Only when a person has moral character, he can know his lord and his parents. It is only then he could develop a positive mindset. When a person has a moral decline, he is definitely going to start thinking negatively which is a disastrous indication is. The character and character of humanity are manifest in the Holy Quran, but today’s young generation has also left the Holy Quran behind. On the contrary they have wasted their precious time on useless things and useless Jobs. So it is said that Holy Quran is alchemy and so life is the only version of our guidance, but unfortunately, the Muslim nation especially the young generation have abandoned the commandments of Allah .
On the contrary, non-Muslims are benefiting from this prescription. Non-Muslims are practicing this in their lives. Today is the time to wake up, today is the time to test yourself, today is the time to rectify yourself, today is the time to reform yourself. Because even today, our young generation is unable to improve, then God forbid, we will have a lot of trouble in future and disastrous consequences ahead. Today is the time to awake your conscience, today is the time to change your thinking that has deteriorated considerably, especially the thinking of the young generation. The younger generation can revolutionize society, if they want to as there are bundles of examples where youths have contributed for the betterment of nations and societies. The younger generation can take society to new heights if they want to. Only young generation work in nation as light, if they know their responsibilities. In the end, this is the prayer to Almighty to show our young generation the straight path. May Allah help our young generation to reform, so that our nation can progress and prosper day by day, Ameen.
