[Thank YOU in advance for having patience enough to read the following self explanatory expressions].

The Quran says in Sura Al-Alaq: “Read in the name of thy Lord who created”. There is another verse of the Holy Quran asking the Prophet (P.B.U.H) to pray: “Lord! Increase my knowledge”. The importance of knowledge is manifest at different places in the Quran.

Besides the Quranic emphasis on education we find many sayings of the Holy Prophet on this subject. A drop of sweat of the brow of a thinker is better than the thousand blood drops of the martyr, is a famous Hadith of the Holy Prophet. The Prophet further said: “Attain knowledge from the cradle to the grave”. Then the Prophet said: “Acquire knowledge even if you have to travel to China”. In another Hadith the Prophet said: “Acquiring of knowledge is obligatory to every Muslim male and female”. The Holy Prophet once issued the orders of release of those prisoners of war who could teach the Muslim children.

Hazrat Ali (Karam ALLAH O Wajhu), in his book entitled “Nehjul Balaga” emphatically stressed on the significance of knowledge saying that the one who cognizes his Self, cognizes his Lord. In a poem Hazrat Ali has beautifully portrayed the significance of knowledge saying:
The beautiful dress does not reflect beauty,
The beauty is the beauty of knowledge and morals,
The one whose father dies is not an orphan,
The real orphan is he who brings bad name to his tribe.”.

My father used to say that people can take everything away but they can't take away your education. Not only is education important to Pakistani's but it is a human right for everyone to have and have access to regardless of gender, disability, race and religion. A lot of problems will be alleviated especially in Pakistan if only everyone had access to a decent and basic education.

If a couple has one son and one daughter and has limited means to educate only one, then they should educate the daughter who in turn would educate her offspring. Girl's education should be the top priority of any state. The very first education a child receives is from his/her mother. Educated mothers are the only hope of better future generations.

Rachid, I'ave been saying that for many years but it was never well received. They didn't seem to understand that mothers play a huge role in educating their children. I learned this after my first was born. Sure daddy took care of her and played with her but he never really taught her anything or read to her at bedtime. He was a good father but a lousy teacher.
