The letters are from Hakim Muhammad Saeed (Shaheed) to me from January 1990 till February 1997.

The letters are in Urdu language, for which I will write a brief translation at the beginning of every letter.

I am sharing them with you because I think that these letters deserve wider audience.

Thank you for visiting !

On one fine evening, she was wandering in a park when one lady who was having refreshment with her children and by accident (which I am sure was an accident) her daughter fell on the refreshment's plate and all the things scattered on the ground.

The lady readily slapped the girl and used abusive words, and to her surprise, the girl didn't even moved a bit to save herself from the punishment.The girl remain in her mother's hand reach so that her mother can easily hit her as many times she like.

Which she believe was girl's own consent because may be she herself wanted her mother to punish her as she accepted her mistake.

So, that day I asked him why we have to be so so humble and respectful with our elders.

Are there no rules for elders to use all the respectful words for us or be humble with us, children?

And he wrote that he always use respectful nicks for children and we all should keep in mind that the person we are talking as a minor being might become might one day.

Dear Daughter, Prayers

I am using the word, 'Venerable' for the youth of Pakistan because who knows which great person/leader is hiding in today's youth.

You, my  daughter is also venerable!

God knows tomorrow what great woman you might become. May you do !

I am usually very busy. But I will still meet your parents. Inshallah (God willing).

Your's Sincerely,

Hakim Muhammad Saeed.
