Almost every country in the world celebrates Father’s Day on the third Sunday of June, as such, this year June 19 is World Father’s Day. In many countries of the world, father is the head of the family and he has various responsibilities on his shoulders. Due to the guru’s responsibility of being a father, he has to bear all the external pains, but again, he cannot avoid the household responsibilities at all. He has to keep an eye on the issue of providing food, clothing and shelter to the children as well as educating them. As the head of the family, he has to take responsibility for all the good and bad. It can be said that if the mother is a honey tree, then the father is the chief executive of the family as like a shadow banyan tree. If the mother is the river, then the father is the boatman of the river. There is no need for a special day for the father to express his love for the child. It is not possible to confine respect and love to the father in a confined circle and within a day. Every day of the year, there is an endless stream of love for the father and the child. It is endless and eternity. At one point in his life, a father became tired, he became weighed down with age, and old age engulfed him. Then he became very helpless and weak. The disease disorder makes him even more upset. At this time, the father wants the child to be by his side all the time, just as he was by the child’s side in all his needs, when the child was a tiny-tot. The father’s heart is broken when he is neglected or abused by the child; the sky becomes heavy when the children push out him at Old age home. It has been mentioned in the Holy Qur’an that the first rightful owner of whatever wealth you spend is your parents. But now many children find it a waste of money for their parents. They first think about the future of her own child. He has to be taught in a good school, he has to wear expensive clothes. The parents of all the children think and suffer for them in the same way. Feed the child well without eating it ourself. He fulfills the needs of the child by neglecting all his needs, he tries to comfort the boys and girls by sacrificing all his comforts. They spend sleepless nights with their children. It is not possible to repay their abandonment; it is possible to feel it. That is why we are celebrating Father’s Day like Mother’s Day to remember our parents in a special way with sincere love and respect. Let’s pray to the Creator every day. “Rabbir Ham-Huma Kama Rabbayani Sagira means O our Lord! Have mercy on both of them; as they nurtured us in our childhood.” (Surah Bani Isra’il: verse 24). In the eyes of Islam, mother is three times more important than father. But even then the role of the father is no less important than that of the mother in shaping life. The family is one of the most social institutions and one of the teachers of this institution is parents and that is why it is said that good family education is very important for a child and that is the ideal education. In addition to formal and religious education, moral education has to be imparted from the family and with it will be added the degree of formal education. Seniors say that the family is the child’s first school. The education and initiation of the child begins with the parents. Basically children start learning about education, ethics, ideals or patriotism from their parents. So, the parents are the first ideal teacher of the child or children begin to consider their parents as their first ideal guru and that is why the role of parents is most important or necessary for the child to grow up. The contribution of parents is usually important for the growth of a child. In most cases, the fathers cope with the financial pressure of the family, while the mothers work hard to manage the house. However, researchers say that fathers who are directly involved with their children make their children feel happier and more confident. The father has to play an important role if he wants to make the child confident. The hope, however, is that many fathers are now contributing directly to the upbringing of children in the family. Many fathers take care of everything from baby food. If the parents both are working, they have to take care of the child by sharing. When the child is on the path of destruction, the parents have to take the helm of the world with a strong hand. Every child has to fulfill its responsibilities as a parent. The arrival of the child in the world is like an intense shadow for the parents. Whose job is to keep away from sorrow and give the child the gift of the moisture of love. Blood clotting is an excellent relationship between father and child. An important foundation of the child-father relationship is respect and love. The father is a devotee in the love of the child and the father is soaked in the good education and respect of the child.
If we each try to understand our own life deeply, then the father casts a shadow on the screen of the mind, in front of the eyes as an important factor. Father that is truly a father and no one else can compare with him. Due to them, we have got the opportunity to see the color, form, beauty of this world. We are all involved in a strange combination of infinite love and affection with the name of that father. ‘Father’ is one of the most beloved and most spoken words in the life of a boy or a girl. When a child starts speaking half-heartedly after coming into the world, the first two words ‘father’ and ‘mother’ are uttered from his mouth. The father is like a king to the child and mother is a queen. Any father is delighted to hear the ‘father’ call on the child’s face. After marriage, husband and wife make sweet conjugal love, but when the baby borns, the children and their parents brighten their faces, creating a different kind of vibration in the heart, making the marital life successful. The father has to be the role model of the child. Like if a father brushes at night, goes to bed fresh, our child will follow the same. The child follows the father. So if we want to build a good habit like reading his books, we also have to read books, we have to be his role model. However, father is the name of a tough warrior. The warrior who pushed his family alone despite hundreds of hardships. But the rest of the family never wants to understand that he is in trouble. Fathers are the banyan tree of each family, who protect their family members year after year from all dangers and struggle. We live in the shade of this banyan tree. Father is the family’s sole banyan tree. He carries the responsibilities on his shoulders and leaves the family in the shadow for the rest of his life. Fathers do not get angry, their troubles are just mixed up in the air, much to their dismay. No one keeps his news, no need to keep the views. Has a child ever heard a parent say “I’m not good”? There is no question. Is it any wonder how a man endures so much! It is not impossible for him to go shopping even with chest pain or physical illness. The mother may hide her face in a cloth (sari) and shed two tears. But father? Where to hide? Does anyone know? It is forbidden to shed tears in public, he is the father. Wiping the sweat from the forehead with the sleeve of the shirt or Punjabi, the father goes away. Do not skimp on buying good clothes for his child even if he wears torn clothes himself. Fathers always like to sacrifice their lives for their children. Throughout the ages different fathers have sacrificed their own lives to make their child’s life better. They have spent all the money they have earned through their physical and mental work for the welfare of their children. There is no day for fathers; there is no need for fathers. Constant love for fathers. Good luck to all fathers, here and there, in this world and in the hereafter, always.
