Iqra…

One of the biggest problems in our educational system is that Islam is taught as a separate subject… and that is why we are trained to divide between worldly and Islamic knowledge… while the fact is that everything begins and ends with Allah… He is the originator of everything but we study the sky and the earth and the people and places as if they came by themselves…

That is why even those people who are interested in nature and they contemplate on the sky and the stars, the sun and the moon, the earth and its various features… they do so without remembering Allah… they will admire the beauty of the mountains and the majesty of the oceans but they will not admire the one who made them so beautiful and majestic…

So I wish we could re-write the books which children read in school and so every subject will teach them to love and admire Allah… for all that he created and for all his wonderful attributes…

The first revelation that came to the Prophet (s.a.w) did not simply say: “read”… but to read with the name of Allah who created everything…

Without the name of Allah there is no life and no light… that is why most of the children just study to pass exams or get good grades… love is not there because without Allah there can be no love and without love there can be no life and no joy…

May Allah guide us to real knowledge that will bring light in our hearts and in our lives… ameen
