Akbar was quite strict and wanted his family to obey all rules and regulations that were being followed by the people. In the show, his son Salim wants to consume alcohol and tells the court dancers to perform for him. Akbar witnesses the entire drama and loses his calm at Salim. Akbar slaps Salim hard but the latter argues that he can do anything that he wants to do as he is a prince. Akbar makes Salim understand that the real power comes from exercising one’s duties religiously and not being irresponsible.

Akbar slaps Salim for his indecent behavior and makes him learn the responsibilities that come with being a prince. On the other hand, Jodha does not like Akbar’s methods. She berates Akbar for raising a hand against his son, while Akbar argues that it is Jodha’s pampering that has led Salim to behave in such an irresponsible manner.

4. Gratitude towards those who have helped us

The show also taught us the lesson that one should not forget those who have helped us in difficult times. In the show, Akbar never forgets how Khan Baba Bairam Khan and his badi ammi Maham anga saved his life and took care of him in his childhood, despite their subsequent betrayal.

5. Never trust anyone blindly

In the show, Akbar, who always trusted Maham anga blindly, hurt several people because of her. Akbar broke off relations with Bairam Khan, Hamida, Jodha, and Ruqaiah due to her machinations. His unborn kid also died due to his trust in Maham anga. His example teaches to investigate and gather full knowledge about any unusual happenings, relying on one’s own intuition and intelligence instead of blind faith in someone else to solve our issues.

6. Never bear grudges against your family

In the show, Jalal hated Hamida to his core and was upset with Jodha. Maham anga knew about Jalal’s hatred against them and took advantage of the same. On the other side, even Salim hated his parents for several reasons. Ruqaiah took advantage of Salim’s hatred and made him an alcoholic. Thus, the show shows us how bearing grudges against your own family members can leave you open to be taken advantage of by others.
