In modern times, education has become common, which ultimately brought significant changes in the minds of people. If we look back the relationships of our ancestors, when few people in societies were educated, and will try to differentiate between the relationships of the two different times, we will finally concluded that wealth, fame, dowry and worldly adornments has destroyed the sincerity, love, agreement and trust among the relationships.

Before, it people were poor and simple. Their desire was to fulfill the rights of relationships with love and simplicity. They were not in the race of false show, extravagance and greed. This simplicity in societies kept the sincerity and love for each other alive. This world pleasure, false show, greed of wealth and dowry were main reasons to destroy sincerity and love in relationships.

Change for worldly adornments and greed for wealth change the faith for lovers with the passage of time. Relationships, which are completely filled with true faith and sincerity and simple in nature, those relationships, are strong as rocks and lush green as fertile soil. The success, love, sincerity, faith makes other relationships stronger and lovable, happy and adds life to them also.

Due to strengthen of those relationships all the people get love and respect for each other. As, a result, in the turban of those relationships all the affected people somehow move forward in concern for each other’s goodness and well-being. If there may arose any difference in opinion, soon they try to clear their conscience.

If we talk about decades or centuries ago, at those times, there were feelings and empathy in the relationships. It is true, most of the people were illiterate, but the elders of the societies were sincere, truthful and God fearing, who used to maintain peace and tranquility of their areas with the help of their wisdom and little knowledge. Their justice was blessings for the people.

Most important thing, which people used to respect elders of their societies, which has always protected that illiterate population from going astray. It is why, heinous crimes were not observed in those times despite having high illiteracy, poverty and hunger among the people. The justice and God-fearing decisions prevented uneducated people from the disease of jealousy and revenge. Those elders were aware close door neighbours and aware about the circumstances.

They were their lawyers and Jurists. It is why; matters were solved at earliest with giving more chance to grow more hatred in the relationships. Modern times Panchayat Raj system in our millions old governing system to govern the people for their peace and well-being. It is why, things have drastically changed everything and in minutes, prosperous relationships turn into ashes. Within no time, people become big customers of justice in the chambers of judiciary. People, who were loved ones and sincere for each other turn their enemies. Both sides, people try to bury the truth as a result of it, after years judiciary fail avail truth. People spend much precious time in waiting decisions of court.

On the other, in ancient times, people were quite simple, straightforward and true hearted. They used to compete with each other in hard work and sacrifice and were not caught in worldly adornments. In modern times, disease of greed has polluted hearts and minds of the people.

In ancient times, people of sincerity and good intentions people used to deal with love, sincerity and always ready to help each other, due to which people used to sweet and strong. Bitterness of poverty had almost made people empathetic towards each other. If there aroused any conflict, they used to reconcile after minutes.

They used to abuse each other jokingly, but they were not practicing the evil of backbiting or to attack someone reputation in back. It reveals their true and cleanliness of hearts. On the contrary, in today’s era, it is often seen most of the people show different attitude at back and front. When their backbiting comes forth, that destroys everything and proves fakeness of the relationships. Those relationships impact other relationships, which ultimately results in people involved in the relationships suffer mental and heart diseases with the passage of time.

Modern education has brought changes in the attitude of people also. It is an undisputed fact, in modern times on side helping others is called humanity and on other side, it is felt shame. All the people in the society are advocates of their own rights and ignore rights of other selfishly. In the thought of self-esteem, people become selfish.

Deception of adornment of the body is called wisdom and is highly appreciated. What had prevented modern people to clean their hearts? What has prevented them to do good in respond to evil?

There was time, when people were suffering from poverty and hardships, which made them enough strong, courageous and empathetic. Greed was little and wealth was very less distributed. As, a result sincerity was maintained in the human hearts. Then relationships were valued.

Unfortunately, modern day’s wealthy relationships are much valued, If luxuries are enjoyed in it. Rising inflation is a growing concern in modern days, which has ruined social and economic life of people. Not only it, it has greatly impacted our relationships. Because, modern relationships are based on money and glamour. If we will see in reality, this era is more destructive than progress, what we perceive.

At last, let us come and conclude that we must cure our relationships by curing our conscience and feelings. Islamic teachings and principles we ignored can restore our social life. The texture of pretentiousness and greed must be eradicated. Instead of wealth, fame, worldly pretentiousness, we must exhibit simplicity, trust, truthfulness and pureness is the matters of life.

Accept the opinions of religious scholar’s instead psychological opinion of friends and foes. Seeking knowledge instead of worldly pleasure and pretentions. Do not spoil relationships in the illusion of wealth and worldly show.

Where there is no simplicity, trust, truthful, and sincerity in the relationship, the lifespan of relationships is short. Big temptations arising due to desire for worldly pleasure, love for materialistic things and false show ultimately germinate seeds of ego and insecurity into hearts from both sides of the people and  can definitely destroy human lives.
