Good morning all.
First let us say praise and gratitude to ALLAh SWT, because of the blessings and graces we gather in this room in good health.
In this opportunity I would like to present a speech about the importance of education for human beings.
Education is a conscious and deliberate effort to create an atmosphere of learning and process of learning so that learners are actively developing his potency to have the spiritual power of religion, self-control, personality, intelligence, noble character, and skills needed for him and for the other people.
From the statement i have several points. They are the first, developing potency to have spiritual power of religion, the second, self-control, the third, personality, the fourth, intelligence, the fifth, noble character, and the sixth, skills.
I would like to elaborate them one by one so that after this speech you will be very sure that your education is really importance.
-The first is developing potency to have spiritual power of religion. What does it mean?
Life without religion is chaos. Life is like a jungle. The stronger will eat the weaker. There isn't any fairness. But a religion comes to make it well ordered because religion means
people believe to something that doesn't appear. People will think something right and wrong.
And the higher knowledge of religion will be only gained by education. The higher education, the more spiritual power people have.
-The second is self control.
Education makes people able to control their self. How can education control it?
In education environment, people learn and get some rules. The easy example is rules at school. Students should obey it. By obeying the rules means the way to control their self.
-The third is personality.
People's personality is built up in educated environment. People know how to behave and react. People may also know how to do something better.
-The fourth is intelligence.
Intelligence should be sharpened. The place to sharpen the intelligence is educated place such as school. The logical opinion is when people must have different intelligence. Education will lead the intelligence to maximum.
-The fifth is noble character.
Noble character is a way how people will still alive although they have died. Noble character is only gained with well education. Street won't do that. Education mainly teachers as the subject will tell you how to speak with elder people. They will also tell you how to do right things. Those what we call noble character.
-The last is skills.
Skills make people worth to real life. Skills also give people better job. The skill is only gained by well education.
Can you imagine if you are a manager, and one day someone comes to you and requests a job in your company. Of course you will hire him/her if he/she has good skill, right?
I think that's all my speech. Thank you.
