The basic objective of Education

(Syed Manazir-ul-Haq, Karachi)

Only the education is the source of development, growth, ascent, skill and strength of a nation. The education is also the source of awakening of human thinking and conscious. It leads human beings to the righteous path having pulled out them from the deviation ways of darkness. But it is regrettable fact that majority of us despite having higher degrees are unfamiliar with the basic meaning and purpose of education. We have only taken it learning and teaching, preparation of examination and the source of getting better employment. Although the education is proved to be helper and supporter on all these material matters however it is not its basic purpose yet the main objective of education is to provide mental, physical and moral training to a human being so that he could recognize Allah and laws of nature by true means. A person is the composition of these three collective qualities i.e. mental, physical and ethical. A renowned educationist has said that “the education is not meant for only to pass on information but for the perfect life it means growth of intellectual/mental, body and moral training of nature”. A saying of another expert of education is that “The purpose of education is not to provide a treasure of information but its aim is growth of abilities of mankind.”

Thus the great scholars, thinkers and educationists have declared the mental, physical and moral training as the fundamental objective of education. Although the field of education is varied yet the basic theme of education does not change whether a person is engaged in science and technology or medical or arts fields. Therefore it has been proved that the basic purpose of education is training of mental, physical and moral tributes – we keep it in mind that when we go out from the educational institutions holding high degrees in science and technology or any other spheres our moral and character should also be unique and empathical so that no one could say that the education discards the youths but all admit it that the education dresses the human beings.

In the present age the moral deficiency which is being seen for example perverseness of some educated youths and blind following of the west causing destruction of their moral, cultural and religious values so in their discarding and isolation education cannot be blamed but it is fault of our education system. In our country countless colleges, schools, universities and other fine art institution for education and knowledge are existed and among them several are renowned for their best education standard. However it is bitter fact that educational institutions are growing but true teaching and learning is descending because mostly among them are not paying proper attention on mental, physical and moral training which is vital because along with knowledge and coaching the building of characters and moral of students is obligation of the educational institution.
