Youth Aspiration Towards Responsibility - Outcomes of being Adhered to Responsibility

Article Index



Discharging any responsibility in the best way may result in one or more of the following outcomes:

Holding the principle of responsibility opens the door to freedom without any darkness. Subsequently, it is the necessity of responsibility to close doors of deviation, disorder and anarchy.

One of the natures of Islamic responsibility is that it opens a wider field of goodness; there is no limit to the increment of good in all responsibilities.

Responsibility directs man's activities and makes it valuable, i.e., it will turn a responsible man, who is carrying responsibility, to a man of aim and goals who cannot move without having intended goals.

As responsibility tries to create an understanding between opinions and actions, and the views of a Muslim youth, girls and boys, concerning any responsibility on their shoulder, likewise, it encourages them to discharge their duties. Islamic responsibility is out of any geographical boundary; its distance is the whole world. It is true that close relatives are worthier of goodness, but we are responsible for reforming the whole world. But, if this responsibility stands only on the borderline, we will not have seen the kind of propagation of Islam that occurred in every part of the world.

Responsibility with its spirit of commitment, decreases and limits the circles of deviation, crimes, treason and other forms of downfall and all kinds of failure, laziness and dependence. A responsible man respects the requirements of his role in life.

Responsibility in Islam creates a condition of harmony and conformity between Allah's will and that of His servant (a Muslim). They are not two wills, rather it is a single will…Allah requests and man obeys and discharges, i.e., he practices the will of Allah and commits it into practice on earth "The response of the believers, when they are invited to Allah and His Apostle that he may judge between them, is only to say: We hear and we obey; and these it is that we are the successful." (Holy Qur'an: 24:51).

Positive examples who shouls undertake their responbibilities in the best way and be provocative tools in order to be followed by those who tarry or disown from its burdens. And as long as the other young man or woman has the acapability of performing this or that responsibility, I, also, have the capability of performing this or that misson.

A set of Islamic responsibilities maintain the reformation of life and changing the deviated views and feelings, and they cannot be achieved unless through a responsible person and a responsible society. The degree of enduring the heaviness of responsibility, in the world justifies the degree of reward or punishment in the hereafter. It is similar to the annual hardworking of a student in school, a chance that will give an increment in reward for anyone who wants increment.
