Religious significance of teacher-student’s good relationship:
The Nabi and Rasul (As.) are designated teachers of mankind and their followers and their students. Hazrat Muhammad (Sm.) has designated the learned among his followers as his successors. He says, “Ulama (learned man/teacher) are the heirs of the Nabis. They are not heirs of riches and wealth, rather they are heirs of knowledge .” (Tirmizi)
So, between students and teachers the same relationship exists as the relationship of inheritance between parents and children. For this reason, we should respect to this student teacher relationship.
The 4th Khalifa of Islam Hazrat Ali (Ra.) says, ” I am his slave from whom I have learnt a word. He can sell me out, set me free or hold me in slavery.” So, according to him, the relationship between a teacher and a student is likened to that between slave and master.
This aspect of student and teacher relationship has come out in full glow in the sight of a polite student. In fact, student and teacher bond should be fair, where there shall prevail sincere respect, affection and love.
