Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat’s advice to children
How to cross the road?
Maulana Owais Yameen Attari Madani
Dear children! Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat ‘Allamah Muhammad Ilyas Qadiri دَامَتْ بَـرَكَاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَهْ said:
Whenever you cross the road, first stand at the edge of the road and look in both directions to make sure no car is coming. If the road is clear, then cross the road. (Malfuzaat-e-Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat, part 15; Jhootha paani phaynk dayna kaysa? p. 18, summarised)
Beloved children! You should not cross the road alone. Make sure an adult, like a parent or older sibling, helps you to cross the road. If you ever need to cross the road alone, then ask a grownup to help you. If there is nobody nearby, then look to the right and left of the road and only cross when no car is coming. Be sure to walk and do not run. Running across the road can cause accidents such as falling down so be careful.
