What’s the wisdom of Ask the Imam on the very important question of education for Muslimahs? He quotes the Hadith:
“Ibn Umar reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: ‘A woman should not emerge from her home except if she is forced to do so”
Of course, he goes on at greater length, but why bother? What do you need school for when you have purdah?
With apologies to Sam Cooke:
Don’t know much about history;
Don’t know much biology;
Don’t know much about a science book;
Don’t know much about the French I took;
But I do know that Allah hates you*;
And I know that if we blame the Jews,
What a halal world this would be.
*Sahih BukhariÂ 2.24.555: “Allah has hated you” for asking too many questions.
“Three schools blown up in Orakzai Agency,” fromÂ Dawn, April 29, thanks to JW
Not to worry:Â KRudd finances madrassas & mosques â€”
PESHAWAR: Three schools were blown up by militants in the Mamozai area of upper Orakzai Agency on Thursday.
The attacks were the latest in a slew of militant violence. On Wednesday, suspected militants attacked a checkpoint in Beizot. Forces retaliated and killed five suspected militants and injured several others.
Five suspected militants were also arrested in Mishit-Mela and Ferozekhel.
It has been almost four weeks since the Orakzai operation was launched in the agency, in which troops claim to have killed over 400 militants so far.
Security forces also claim to have consolidated their positions in most parts of the lower Orakzai and now claim to be advancing towards the central part of the agency.
In the Khyber Agency at least five militants have been killed and 18 others have been arrested including two commanders of Lashkar-e-Islam in Bara Tehsil.
