I remember very well as a child we used to watch cartoons broadcast by Pakistan Television on Sony’s Black and White TV at home before going to school, they used to sing this song:
“Books talk about entertaining us
Sometime next time some time past ”
Our childhood was spent listening to this song and humming and the relationship with books became so deep that it made me a reader to a writer and then a columnist.
Al-Jahiz was a well-known Arab thinker who spent his entire life in writing and composing. Are
He once exhorted a man in these words: “A book is a friend who neither flatters you nor puts you on the path of evil.”
This friend will not let you down. This is a neighbor that will never hurt you. This is an acquaintance who will not try to take advantage of you with lies and hypocrisy. ”
The love of reading not only enhances knowledge but also provides creative power while igniting human thinking and comprehension abilities.
Thanks to this passion, the search for wisdom and wisdom and the discovery of the secrets of the universe is created in the heart and eyes of man. Allah Almighty has repeatedly said in the Qur’an,
There was a time when books were arranged in a cupboard in the house of every person who was thirsty for knowledge. When guests went to someone’s house, the first question asked to the host was, “So many books.” Who reads? ” And the hosts proudly said that our son, daughter or we read ourselves.
In addition, people borrowed books from each other, students used their school, college, and university libraries, while ordinary citizens who were interested in reading books used government libraries in the cities. He used to turn around and buy expensive books himself. But then times changed, with the advent of TV people became less interested in reading books but still remained.
After that, the advent of the Internet hit books hard and this hobby almost disappeared. In addition, a sharp rise in the prices of all matters relating to paper, printing, publishing, and book publishing has resulted in an increase in the price of books and has widened the gap between books and readers. Price, access to the common man, and the advent of social media, in particular, have revived the love of books, but now it is in digital form.
