The desires of Adolescence

In Arabic there is a very wise saying:
Adolescence is a branch of insanity.” In reality, as soon as a person

becomes mature, all kinds of emotions and desires erupt within him. This is

a very dangerous stage of a growing child: he gets attracted to passion,

and the environment and society where he is growing begins to lead him in

different directions. These factors lead to sexual anarchy (disorderliness)

and obscenity that endanger the social fabric of society.

The correct preservation of Youth
Parents should keep a close watch on their teenagers and attempt firmly

to keep them away from all kinds of evil company. They should be kept away

from cinema, theatre, music, dancing, novels, pornography, sexually

explicit articles in the print media or the Internet and anything that is

harmful to their character. Boys should not attend the gatherings of

women nor mix freely with young girls.

The youth should abstain from these evils themselves. The effort is not

only of the parents. The teenagers have to muster up courage as well. If

one treaded the wrong path one’s youth, then it is more difficult than

moving a mountain to change the direction later. Together with destroying

one’s honour, there is a great danger in destroying one’s health and

physical strength. This is the one stage in life, which if spoiled, can

destroy one’s entire future.

Man has two natural instincts created in him: carnal desires and love. As

soon as the age of youth begins, these two forces are accelerated. Those

factors which have been mentioned above and from which one has to abstain,

increase one’s desires and love. At this stage in life, one’s intelligence

is also deficient. Therefore, one will very soon try to fulfill one’s

desires in all the wrong avenues and thus become involved in adultery. and

if one does not find a wrong avenue to fulfill one’s desires or one does

not have the courage to strike up a friendship, one will become involved in

unlawful acts to curb one’s desires e.g. masturbation and homosexuality

with young boys. These filthy acts are not only extremely sinful, they also

destroy one’s health. In fact, one loses one’s potency and thus one’s

ability to marry in future is also threatened. Like a drying flower, one’s

life slowly deteriorates. These wrong and promiscuous habits can lead to

fatal diseases like gonorrhea, syphilis and AIDS.

It is therefore highly essential that one studies good literature and adopts

the company of pious saints from the age of fifteen. If a teenager looks

after himself during this trying period, the rest of the life will progress

smoothly and efficiently. But if he adopted the wrong company and learnt

wrong habits, then there is every likelihood that he will become caught up

in the quagmire of life and death and life become burdensome and distasteful

to him.
