EDIFICATION FOR GENERATIONS

Amir Temur had a deep knowledge in religious and secular sciences and as a spiritually clear person always encouraged humanity to be just, clear, honest. Temur the Great hated ill things hindering the progress of the country. It is admissible to say that if mankind lived following the counsel and admonition of Amir Temur the Great they wouldn’t suffer from the problems and misery which have been troubling all people of the whole world. What is the reason of this? We think that the reason of this is that, the spiritual heritage left by our great grandfather hasn’t been learned, to speak clearly it wasn’t allowed to be studied. However, Temur the Great left written in his “Temuri-Tuzuki” about how he had created such a powerful country with much difficulty, the ways of how to keep it and what must be taken into consideration in ruling the government in order future generation should become conscious of all of these and put into use. The point is that he wrote his moral and admonition relying on his own experience. We think in this place it is advisable to address to the activity of our great grandfather Amir Temur: “My sons! In order to keep the great rank and happiness of the nation, read, never forget and put into use the Tuzuki and testament which were left for you”. That’s a pity after Amir Temur’s death they didn’t follow the will which he had left and it led to the regress and corruption of such a powerful country. Great Temur had made united Mavorounnahr consisting of small separate states where dominated inner fights and injustice, inequity, but such a great centralized state falled into decay in the result of ignoring his instructions. Thank much to God, the independence and wise policy being set into motion there happened radical turn in our people’s spirit.
Amir Temur’s activity and spiritual heritage were marked through the point of justice. It won’t be exaggeration if we say that especially today Amir Temur’s will has found its value in independent Uzbekistan.
Nowadays the heritage left by him is being studied thoroughly, put into use, being carried on propaganda and developed following the demand of epoch. I won’t be exaggeration at any rate to say that our much respected President I.A.Karimov is the initiator and leader of all this blessing work. Amir Temur’s counsel and wise admonition make great importance for not only his epoch but for our future generation. It can be understood reading this: “In the work of reign follow four things, i.e. the first, council,the second, counsel and advice, the third, firm decision, providence, consciousness,the fourth, caution. Because the reign without council and counsel can be compared with a rude man whose all work he does and all words he says are false; the words he says and the wok he does bring us misery and regret. In that case, follow counsel and advice and providence in ruling the reign, in the result you won’t feel sorry and regretted. I know it from my experience, an owner of providence, courage and bravery, firm decision, business and consciousness is better than thousands of people who are improvident and indifferent. I didn’t forget children, relatives, friends, neighbors and all people who had made me a friend when I gained the rank of honor and richness, gave their fair earnings. I treated a man who came from my enemies and friends asking for mercy so that my friends became friendly to me more and my enemies’ hostility changed into friendship.
A day’s justice is better than hundred day’s confession.
A man with strong arm wins one, with strong knowledge wins thousand ones.
Don’t fear of enemies, fear of hypocrite. I followed this saying of pious sheikh Bahouddin Nakshbandi: “Eat little, sleep little, speak little”. The words which I told people of my government and my men were that: “Eat little, you will never see starvation and live in richness, sleep little, you will get perfectness, speak little, you will grow wise.” I paid attention to the marriage of my sons, grandsons and my close people. I equalized it with the affairs of government. I made inquiries about the girl’s family race and her seven predecessors. I found out her health and physically perfectness through special people. I made her a daughter-in-law organizing a big wedding party for people only in such case if she was healthy, from perfect generation and well-bred”.
We think that these moral admonitions and advice taken from “Temuri-Tuzuki” teach all of us to live following the Great Grandfather’s activity.
