The UK, Russia, China, US and France have pledged to reduce the likelihood of an unwinnable nuclear war. We explore the reasons behind this joint agreement and how these powerful nations plan to put into action this plight.

Special guests share their views on this topical issue.

How can teachers be good role models?

Recent news has highlighted some teachers acting unprofessionally in their work environment. Whilst this does not represent all teachers, we will discuss and highlight the importance of understanding roles and responsibilities as a teacher. Exactly what impact can a teacher have on their students and should a teacher be a role model?

We invite special guests to answer theses questions and more on this Wednesday’s Breakfast Show.

Islamic Higlights:

The Holy Qur’an champions the sanctity of life:

…whosoever killed a person – unless it be for killing a person or for creating disorder in the land – it shall be as if he killed all mankind; and whoso gave life to one , it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind. 

Holy Quran, Chapter 5 verse 33

The Promised Messiah (as) said: “An individual with self‐respect and self‐control, who is also forbearing and dignified, has the right to correct a child to a certain extent or guide the child.  But a wrathful and hot‐headed person who is easily provoked is not fit to be a guardian of children.  (Malfuzat, vol. 2, p. 4)
