Learning Trust

Trust is such a little word but can have gigantic ramifications in a man’s life. A few people think that its simple to put their trust in others and this can proceed notwithstanding when they find that their trust has been lost or mishandled. They trust that individuals are for the most part great and ought to be given another shot. At that point there are the others like me who have been harmed enough times and had their trust sold out that they don’t think that its conceivable to trust individuals effortlessly and will frequently avoid individuals as much as possible, with just a couple of special cases.

Trust must be earned and you have to demonstrate that you are dependable and won’t let individuals down who are depending on you for something, either in the working environment, between relatives or in a social setting. I have one obligation of trust which has stood the trial of time yet not without diligent work on both sides. Like the vast majority I wish to be considered as being dependable.

This friendship has withstood many tests and is still going strong, but the change which I mentioned earlier has caused us both to be aware of the pitfalls. It has often been said that religion is a double-edged sword and we have found this to be true, as religion is the one thing which still threatens to send us on our separate ways.My friend and I have realised that this is one topic on which we will never agree so to make our lives easier, and our friendship last, we have decided that we will avoid the issue of religion in our conversations.

Although we are both practicing Muslims, we have differing viewpoints regarding our religion. For many years my friend has been in favour of religious education in schools in the UK and has now enrolled her children in Islamic schools in Manchester, run by a staff of devout Muslims, with a strong emphasis on community training. She believes that this will make her children devout Muslims, who will in turn encourage the spread and the teachings of Islam, whereas my opinion is that this will make her children intolerant towards other religions.

I happen to disagree and think that children should not be forced to study in a religious environment and that the teaching of religion should be a separate process for which the parents need to make alternative arrangements. Many people will say that I am wrong that we should mix religion with education but I believe that it is a matter of choice, as long as the children are happy and doing well at their studies, I am not one to interfere in someone else’s way of live. I am all in favour of giving to Islamic charities but I always do my research before I part with my money and make sure that I approve of the beliefs and actions of the charity I am donating to.
