It is sad to see many muslims tht is the majority of them illiterate, it saddens me to see them in this state. especially in developing countries like India , Pakistan, Bangladesh...etc u see th elist can go on n on n on.
another major problem is illiteracy percent is more in women, n if women r not educated then our ummah will stagnate, as it rightly said tht a mother is the first teacher of a child and imagine if u have a teacher who doesnt know anything herself what is she suppose to teach u, do u get my point.
If we cool-mindedly ponder over the causes of Muslims downfall and disgrace, we shall find the two very causes as responsible. The Holy Quran is the command centre of all individual and collective matters, rituals and worships of the Muslims. As long as the Muslims retained the Quran as their leader, they were the leaders of the world. Under the leadership of the Quran, wherever they marched, they conquered and big powers of the time fell to them. But when the Muslims diverted from the way of Quran, they lost their leading role and their unity as a nation crumbled. The Muslims have not only become apathetic towards Quran but also they have started distorting the meaning of Quran. Everyone is at liberty to call himself a scholar of Quran and define the meaning of Quranic verses from his own mind
In the same way, the other secret of Muslims power and rule over the unbelievers was their unity, which has has vanished too. As long as they were maintained the bonds of emaan and brotherhood, they were dominant over the whole world and when they started begrudging their own brothers and making friends with the enemies, they fell in the abyss of disgrace and humiliation.
today u see these uneducated , poor muslims living in jahiliya, they dont know anything about islam...they only have muslim names, they r not even circumcised and live in utterly disgusting and unhygeinic conditions.
young girls an dguys falling in love,and ofcourse divorce is a common site, husband brutally beating the wife, small children are sent off to beg so they can eat one time lunch,black magic is common in these places, n i can just go on .
so u see the cause of my distress...i know ur response, u will tell me thtu already are aware of this state of muslims.
so what are we doing to improve this condition.
yes u , u are the only one who can save the ummah . each one of u, only if each n every one of us is concerned for our ummah only then can we make a difference.
so plz initiate in ur own small ways helping, educating small children, imparting valueable knowledge of the Quran.
plz come forwardand contribute ur ideas as well as stories of how u r helping in this cause. i request each and every one of u to ake some time from ur busy life by sacrificing t.v ,videogames,movies,etc nd help in the cause of the ummah.
have some suggestions:
1)There is a need that madrasahs for children are set up in every town and village to give children the literal education of Quran, and public gatherings are organized for enlightening the adults with the meaning of Quran and preparing them to act accordingly.
2)The other task that one should undertake is to divert their attention to the reformation of the women of their family and neighbourhood. They should start a lobby for women to recognize and wipe out the widespread heedlessness and ignorance in matters of Deen that result in the practicing of bid'ah.
3)The students that have been given the light of knowledge, can work on ignorant females, straighten out their beliefs, try to inculcate in them the importance of tawheed (Oneness of God), and the love of Allah and His Rasul sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam.
4)the female students to do is convert their homes or at least one room into a madrasah, where they can teach the correct way to pray salah, the Tajweed of the Qur'an, teach the meaning and explanation of the Qur'an, teach some necessary masail: start schooling everyone something according to their aptitude.
5)Follow the footsteps of your spiritual mother Hazrat Ayesha radhiyallahu ta'ala 'anha and make your home a madrasah and discounting age, start spreading your knowledge among mothers, sisters, and daughters. Keep your schedule around your household duties so that your home life is not affected and marital life left undisturbed.
u may plz post ur suggestions also
