During my stay at Thatta I visited famous Shah Jahan Mosque. It was built during the reign of just Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in 17th century.
The mosque is an example of Mughal architecture and art. Whole the building is built of red stones and bricks. There is also work of colourful local tiles. When I entered the mosque I was impressed with its architectural beauty. It is a beautiful model of Muslim Engineering and Architecture. There is proper arrangement of light without electricity. There is natural system of air-conditioning and there is auto-echo system in the building and there is no need of loud speakers during Aazan, sermon or saying prayers.In short it is the best example of Mughal art, architecture and engineering.
Morning is the most suitable for going out for a walk. Air is cool and bracing. The atmosphere is clean, quite and free from dust I get up an hour before sunrise and go out for a walk to
Games play a very important role in a student’s life. There are various games which interest different people. The game which interests me most is cricket.
I like this game because I find it to be one of most healthy out door games. It is also team game and result depends upon the combined efforts of all the players of the team. I have learnt valuable qualities of co-operation and team spirit. It also creates the quality of discipline because every player is bound to obey the orders of one person that is captain. It also creates self confidence in a person because when one is batting on the crease he plays on his own.
A cricket player has to be strong. He has to be smart and quick too. It is one of the very few games which cultivate many good qualities in a player at the same time. This is why cricket is my favourite game.I have always taken a keen interest in the game and played several matches with other teams. I have an ambition to be great cricketer and one day I want to represent my country at international level.
A cricket match is always interesting whether it is played international level or national level or at low level every body is interested in this game.
A very interesting and exciting cricket match was played on last Sunday between public school team and our schools in municipal stadium. Our team’s captain won the toss and decided to bat first. Aslam and Hamid opened the match with 25 runs. Aslam was caught in slips. After Aslam, Aamir joined Hamid. Both players played a steady game and runs came in slowly but surely. The second wicket fall at 60. Next two players did not contribute much. After same brisk play on the part of fifth and sixth wickets. The score card showed 100 runs for four wickets, the whole side was dismissed for 190. It was now lunch time.After the lunch the play was resumed at First two players in over confidence played a bit loosely and were caught out one after the other. After them third players was run out. This made the game a bit exciting. But the fourth and fifth wicket carried score to 70 and whole the team was dismissed for 170. The game ended in favour of our school’s team. We won by 20 runs.
Last Sunday I had an opportunity to watch a foot ball match between Green club and Blue club. At both teams entered the ground. Both teams were in their beautiful uniforms. At referee blew the whistle the play began. For long time no team scored goal. The players of Green club however began to press the opposite side. A few minutes before the interval captain of Green club made the goal on a penalty corner.The game in the second half became exciting from the beginning. The Blue club equalled the goal after 15 minutes of second half. After the struggle of five minutes the Green Club made the second goal. After it Blue club’s players made furious attack on Green club’s goal but all in vain. The long whistle of the referee ended the match and Green club won the match by two to one. The supporters of Green club were overjoyed on the victory of their favourite team. They were clapping and dancing, their pleasure was worth seeing.
Last Sunday I had an opportunity to watch a hockey match between Larkana club and Sukkur Club’s hockey teams in Larkana Municipal Stadium. There large number of spectators came to watch the match. Right at referee blew the whistle and play began. Centre forward of Larkana club pushed the ball towards the opposite end. The next moment he was running after it. It happened so swiftly that the opponents could not move before he had reached the “D”. The goal keeper tried his best but it was too late and the first goal was scored.
Once again the game started. Players of Sukkur club were more active this time, their entire forward managed to beat the Larkana club’s players, and equalled the goal at last minute of first half.When the interval was over the game became tense and there was great excitement, Sukkur club’s players played a better game. Most of time the ball remained in Larkana club’s half. Time and again their captain reached Larkana club’s goal. Every time Larkana club’s goal keeper stood in his way and cleared the ball. In last moment Larkana club’s centre forward made effort and scored the goal and Larkana club came out victorious. All of the supporters of Larkana club were overjoyed and were clapping with pleasure.

Although my country is basically an agricultural country with all kinds of crops fruits and trees, yet we are developing into an industrial one.
There are many historical places in
Labour has got lot of importance in the world. All big mansions, grand high ways and large mills and factories are fruit of labour of man. If there had been no labour, we would have lived in desert, but in our country we most of people are in habit of hating labour. We consider it menial work. We feel shame in doing work with our own hands.
In advanced countries people do not feel shame in doing work with their own hands, it is why they are on the road of prosperity and progress. In
Islam gives importance to the labour. Our Holy Prophet (Peace by upon him) loved doing work with his blessed hands, four pious Khalifas, Imams and saints followed his foot prints. They all liked to work for themselves and for others. Holy Prophet said “Labourer is friend of God”. From that saying it is evident that only working man and woman are dear to God. A working person earns his or her living by honest means. That lawful earning creates in him the qualities of truth and high moral. If we want to be good Muslim we should not only work with our hands but also appreciate the working persons of the society.Labour creates self confidence in a person by creating self confidence a person can enjoy the fruits of labour. The fruit of labour is always sweet. It is necessary for us not to forget the importance of labour. Labour keeps us away from the sins of exploitation and corruption.
Good health is joy; good health is a greatest blessing of God. Good health is prosperity as well as prosperity as well as superiority. A healthy person can participate in each and every activity of life. He can study, he can earn his living and he can do his duties with great enthusiasm and interest. A healthy person earns his name and fame. Against it an unhealthy person can do nothing for himself and for others as well.
Being a Muslim it is our duty to keep our selves healthy and adopt healthy things. We should take much care of our health. For good health Islam lays stress on cleanliness and cleanliness has been called the half of the faith. It is why abulation has been made compulsory before saying prayer five times a day. Islam also asks for simple but pure diet. Balanced and pure life makes a person healthy.Today if we wish to have a healthy society, we will have to purify our environment from pollution. We will have to be simple and natural. It is the fact that healthy environment is better than all medicines in the world. It is also fact that healthy is like a great treasure and it must be guarded properly. We must take care of our bodies because our lives depend entirely upon healthy bodies. Serious trouble with organs of body would mean death. A man who possesses sound health is indeed a rich man.
A person who is aware of his duties and rights in his society is a good citizen. A good citizen does his best to do his duty to the society. He always keeps in view the interest of state and society. He lives a clean, honest and truthful life. He remains away from such activities that may harm the interest of his fellow citizens. He lives not for him self alone but for others also. He pays his taxes, takes interest in the affairs of state.
A good citizen must be ready to sacrifice his everything for the sake of his country. He should have firm and deep faith in the welfare of his country. He is law abiding and he helps the authorities in this regard.
A good citizen cares for good of his city, town and neighbour hood. He keeps his surroundings clean and beautiful. He must co-operate with his fellow citizens and neighbours. He must be ready to extend the helping hand to every one and any one at the time of need.A good citizen must respect the cultural heritage of his country. He must respect the heroes, the prophets, the sages and saints of his country. He must keep in mind the future of his country. He must be ready for the defence of the frontiers of his country. He must leave no stone unturned for the prosperity and integrity of his mother land.
It was about . I was reading for my terminal tests. All family members except me were sound a sleep. Suddenly there was alarm of fire brigade. I sprang out of my chair and rushed to the windows. I saw flames and black smoke rising from a house at a short distance from our house. I cried out fire “Fire”. Every one in our house was up and out of bed. Father and I ran out of the house. We had to stop well away from the burning house which was a two story building. A big crowd had gathered on the road.
We could see the building on fire. We could hear the cries of the poor men, women, and children caught in the burning building. I prayed to God to save them all. The firemen fought the flames bravely. Ladders went up the sides of the building water was being shotout at the flames. Quickly all the inmates were brought out by the fire fighters. But they had to leave their belonging behind.A fire brigade man did a brave deed. Through smoke and fire he made his way to top story to rescue a little child. He brought the kid out safely at last fire was brought under control by the fire brigade. The fire was put in an hour. Half of the house had been burnt to ashes. It was lucky that the fire did not spread to other houses. It was also fortunate that there was no loss of life. The loss of property was about 2, 00,000/- Rupees.
To be together for the same cause is called union or unity. Little forces are of no use if they are divided, but when the forces of small volumes are united they are able to change the destiny of the nations.
It is a famous saying that united we stand divided we fall. It had been the reason behind the victories and defeats of all nations, communities and tribes. We can see that when the Muslims of the world were united they were invulnerable but when they weaken themselves they are not in a good position in the world community.
We can see the examples of unity in small creatures also. The birds fly in a big group for their safety, in jungles animals live in large herds in order to protect themselves from wild animals like lions, foxes and tigers. An elephant can be killed by small ants if they are united. The united labour of honey bees gives us sweet honey.
We are living in the age of science. In every walk of life we have scientific facilities, and inventions of scientists have mode our life more comfortable and happy for us than it was in the past. If our ancestors happen to visit the modern world they will not be able to recognize it.
The contribution of science is seen in our daily life. We feel frightened to think of old ages when there were no trains, no aeroplanes, no electric fans, no radio sets, no X-rays, no printing press, no refrigerators, no Air-conditioners, computers and no means of entertainment as films, T. V, V. C. R, C. Ds etc. Really all these facilities and aids have been given to us by un-parallel progress of science in the twentieth century.
Science has made powerful achievement in the field of communications. It has shortened time and space. Today we have fast-moving trains, comfortable motor cars and luxurious aeroplanes and ships. We can over the distance of thousands of kilometres in few hours. Science had provided us with labour saving machines and devices. For pen to motor bike we have a large number of means of amusement and recreation due to the science. By watching T. V. and film in cinema we refresh our tired minds. In the field of medicine, science has provided us with many wonder drugs like pencilling.To conclude, human life has been renders much more comfortable by the blessings of science.
Robert Browning says, “The aim if reached or not makes great the life” so aim has great importance in human life. It plays the role of guiding star.
In selecting one’s aim, one must take into consideration one likes, ability, parent’s choice and economic conditions of the family.Different people have different aims. Some want to be doctors, some want to be engineers, some want to be army officers some want to be politicians and some want to be teachers. My aim in life is not to amass wealth, not have power over helpless persons or get high social status. My aim is simple enough. It is service of poor and down trodden people. I have decided once for all to spend the rest of my life in the service of suffering people. My aim is to become a doctor. In this regard I have made up my mind to join good medical college after passing pre-medical. I shall be doctor of different type. I shall never be after amassing wealth. I shall not grow fat at the expenses of others. As a doctor it will be my object to charge only reasonable money from the patients in order to meet the expenses of clinic, medicines and clinical staff. I do not collect wealth for my self and make mansions. I need money only for my bare necessities. I shall have this money by having good practice and working hard. Doctor’s business is after all services and I am determined to do so. I shall be honest, sincere in treating and nursing my patients. May God help me to achieve my aim?
It was 15th of July the day of declaration of my
