I truthfully proclaim that a person who is not dutiful to their mother and father will never receive goodness and blessing. So mould yourselves with good intentions to act upon the instructions of God and His Messenger with complete obedience and loyalty; for all good lies in this, otherwise, one is free to act as they please. My duty is only to advise you.
Emphasis on learning Arabic and English
I would also like to advise my community to learn the Arabic language, because without a knowledge of Arabic, one cannot enjoy the Holy Quran. Therefore, you ought to make an effort to learn Arabic little by little, insofar as it is necessary to understand the translation of the Holy Quran. In this day and age, easy methods to learn Arabic have been introduced. When reciting the Holy Quran is compulsory for every Muslim, what excuse does a person have to not endeavour to learn the Arabic language and for one to waste away their entire life learning English and other languages? Having said that, it should also be borne in mind that since the rule established in this country has taken on the form of a national government, the language of a national government, therefore, also possesses national importance. Therefore, it is imperative that you learn English as well, so that you are able to fully communicate your views and opinions to the government, and so that you are able to offer it benefit and support.
