There is no doubt that the youth of the Ummah are the foundations of the human building upon which is established this nation. So the youth are the younger generation that will carry the responsibility after their fathers. The youth have within them bodily strength and thinking, they have talents, kills and aptitude that are new and modern that are not present in older people.
The elder folk have wisdom and experience, whilst the youth have strength and preparedness and readiness. So if the youth and the elders were to work together for the advancement of the Ummah, much good would be achieved. However if the youth go their own way, seperate from the elders, the devils from the humans and the Jinn will come between them (tocause mischief). So the sidelining of youth towards other objectives and aims is harmful to the Ummah.
