Teachers are the heirs of Nabi Muhammad, to spread the knowledge after the loss of the prophet. Basically, in Islam, teachers need to tell the society about the knowledge, guide those who are lost, and help those who want to be back on the right track. And actually all Muslims are teachers, because it is our role to spread even the slightest knowledge to others.

The teacher expressed his great admiration and esteem and said, “O Hatem! God may prosper you. As I looked in the Torah, the Bible, the Psalms, and the Quran, I found these eight questions be the pivot of these Books.”
•Realize the level of each students and offer them according to their ability. They should intimate to the smart, elucidate for others, and repeat for the unintelligent.
