Why Reading:
What could signify the importance of reading more than the fact that the first
word of the first Divine Revelation sent by God to Holy Prophet (PBUH) was
Iqra (read).”
Research shows that reading:
• Stimulates the mind,
• It opens human mind towards new thoughts, new ideas and possibilities.
• It improves focus and concentration.
Various Studies show, the more knowledge one has, the better-equipped he is to tackle any
challenge he’ll ever face:

• It improves creativity,
• Increases Self confidence,
• Raises self esteem,
• Builds expertise, and
• Forms new mental associations.

Why Read Pakistan
It was found, throughout the human history, reading rate of the leading nations was much
higher than the nations being ruled.
On the other hand, study reveals that “there was a link between deprivation and not
reading” the individuals who never read books, live in more deprived areas living in
darkness.
Another research indicates that frequent readers are more likely to be satisfied with life,
happier and more successful in their professional lives.
