The role of the youth is crucial in the success and failure, victory and defeat, progress and decline of any nation and country. According to the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:

“On the Day of Judgment, every human being will have a special question about this best stage of life, what did you spend your youth in?”

The Holy Prophet (SAW) took a continuous and keen interest in the education and training of the youth. He also encouraged them in every possible way.

Here are some Hadiths in this regard are,

“Seven people Allah will give them His Shade on the Day when there would be no shade but the Shade of His Throne (i.e., on the Day of Resurrection): And they are:

  1. A just ruler.
  2. A youth who grows up in the worship of Allah.
  3. A man whose heart is attached to the mosques.
  4. Two people who love one another for the sake of Allah.
  5. Someone who resists a direct temptation from the opposite gender.
  6. A person who is completely selfless in charity.
  7. A person who remembers Allah in private and sheds tears in doing so.

The Holy Prophet also entrusted the leadership of many important campaigns to the youth. His last army was sent by Siddique Akbar after his demise. It was also led by the young Companion Hazrat Osama bin Zaid. When we look at the collection of hadiths, it becomes clear that the young Companions of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) also played a key role in transmitting the hadiths. On the other hand, when we look at our society, the new generation is mired in a quagmire of problems. The class system of education is unjust, there is a burden of economic problems, there are excesses due to untimely marriage, unemployment, depression, domestic worries, and the deteriorating situation of the country has created new confusion.

The younger generation is afflicted with mental and physical illnesses also. There is only one way out of this turbulent environment, it is the Holy Qur’an, the Sunnah of the Messenger, and the Seerah of Sahaba. Here are the following are some of the major issues facing the youth.

1.   Unaware of Sharia:

Many young people in Pakistan are away from religion (Islam) and consider the world their primary goal, a place that they are never supposed to leave. The youth’s energy is wasted building and improving their professional careers. Youngsters seem to devote their energies to improving the world to such an extent that the five daily prayers and other members of Islam are left behind. Some young people are so far away from the mosque and religion that they go to the mosque for Eid prayers or Fridays. It is a tragic fact that even if young people succeed financially but are religiously backward, it is a sign of their failure. The main reason for this is that for the success of any human being, it is very important to improve the life of this world as well as the life of the hereafter.

2.   Depression:

Because today’s youth do not recognize the purpose of life, and they soon fall prey to feelings of deprivation, many young people also appear to suffer from a variety of psychiatric disorders. Depression, anxiety, and many other mental illnesses cause the nerves of young people to weaken. Such young people are unable to serve the country and the nation, let alone know themselves. A large number of young people suffering from these problems are ready to give up important matters of life. To solve the psychological problems of the youth, while their esteemed relatives should encourage them and try to get them out of despair, they should also make it clear that the solution to these problems is remembrance, repentance, supplication, and trust play a significant role. If young people are made aware of these things, then their psychological problems can be solved and many young people can be saved from falling into the mire of despair.

3.   Bad Friendship:

 Like other modern societies, a large number of young people in Pakistan are suffering from poor health. Young people with poor health often become addicted to drugs and often engage in serious activities such as theft, robbery, murder, and burglary. It is the parents’ responsibility to keep a close eye on the youth. If parents see their children’s attitudes, habits, and routines changing, they must ask questions about their children’s companionship.

4.   Misconduct:

A large number of young people in our society also appear to be victims of sexual misconduct. Looking at pornographic programs, obscene literature, pornographic websites, and content on the Internet have a profound effect on the minds and hearts of young people, leading them to engage in sexual misconduct. Parents should train young people from an early age and teach them modesty, chastity, and lowering their gaze to protect young people from these issues. It is also the responsibility of the parents to teach this and other young girls about the veil, hijab, and modesty. Getting married early is very important to protect young people from misbehavior. If these issues are addressed, young people can be saved from misguidance.


This is the message for today’s youth to determine their destination. They have to think about whether the purpose of life should be so limited. They should build self-confidence in themselves and try to create an ideal society by eliminating all kinds of evils from your society which have qualities like peace, security, tolerance and brotherhood, generosity, and love.
