I was about ten years old. My Dad parked the car in a parking and we got out. Suddenly we realised that the hand break was not on. The car started drifting backwards and it was about to hit the car behind. My dad rushed towards the car and put his hand at the back of the car. Our car hit the car behind it but my dad's hand was in between them. This kept the other car safe from any scratches. That was when I learned the importance of Haqq al-Naas (Right of People).
The Hand, The Car
Black and White
I was watching an Iranian movie with my 11 years old son today (The Past). The movie was a bit beyond his understanding.
He asked me: "Who is the good guy, who is the bad guy?"
I replied: "They are all a bit good and a bit bad"
Not being satisfied with my answer he then asked me: "so who is the one that we are supporting?"
I replied: "We are not supporting any of them, we are just observing them"
My son then realized that taking a nap is his best option. Meanwhile, I was thinking, from where our kids learn that there should always be a goody and a bady and from where they learn that we always need to support one of the sides!
