Teachers are considered to be the builders of a nation. They give knowledge and teach skills to the children. You should treat your teachers with respect and honour. You should sit respectfully before the teachers. You should listen to him with attention. You should not misbehave with your teacher. Islam tells the Muslims to acquire education and knowledge. It is compulsory upon all Muslim men and women. Books give us knowledge about everything. We should respect our books by taking good care of them. We should cover our books properly. We should not throw them around, but keep them in their proper place after using them.
