STORY OF “General Ayub Khan, former President of Pakistan”
“I used to study at a place name Aibtabaad.I used to get the beatings from teacher (Maulvi) everyday as I was the weakest student of my class.
One day I became determined that I will not go to school. Halfway to school there was a Gurdwara Sahib. I would go inside the Gurdwara Sahib to hide away. The Baba jee (main sevadaar) of the Gurdwara Sahib knew me very well.
He asked me “O Yubeyaa! Isn’t it your school time? What are you doing here?”
I replied, “I don’t want to go to school because the teacher scolds and beats me everyday. I can’t bear it any more. I don’t want to go to school.”
He took me under his lap and said me,
“Yubeyaa! I assure you, you will never ever get the beating from your teacher any more, but in return you will have to follow my instructions.”
He told me that whenever I go to school I should just keep reciting this holy Mool mantar. I followed his instructions. I went to the school reciting the “Mool Mantar”.
It was the first day in my school when I was spared from the beatings and scoldings of the teacher. I followed it everyday. Whenever I used to go to school I used to recite this holy Kalaam (Word of God) and after that I was never beaten by any teacher in the school.
Then exams arrived, so I went to the same Baba jee at the Gurdwara Sahib and said, “Baba jee, I want to get good marks in the exam, tell me what should I do?”
The Baba jee replied ,”Never leave the Holy Word of Guru Nanak (referring to the Mool Mantar) you will reach any position you wish.”
It’s because of this Kalaam (Holy Word) of Guru Nanak Sahib that I have reached the position of president today.”
