Kairana: President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board Maulana Mohammad Rabey Hasani Nadvi said that if a woman is given education then, it will pave the way for the development and progress of the whole family. Similarly, if a woman is deprived of the education then, the whole family would plunge in the darkness of ignorance and superstition. Maulana Rabey Hasani Nadvi was giving away certificates of Khatm-e-Bukhari to the students of Jamia Ummul Momineen Aisha Siddiqua Lil Banat here yesterday.
Maulana Rabey Hasani Nadvi further said that in fact the establishment of Madaris and Makatib is a means of acquiring and gaining Allah’s grace and mercy. In the Madaris the students are acquainted with fundamentals of a moral life as well as paths to realize Allah’s chosen way. Maulana Rabey Hasani Nadvi mentioned that Allah has created everything on this earth for his service and hence everything is compelled to do Ibadat. However, Allah has given the man Ilm (knowledge), and Aql (intellect) simultaneously so that he can himself judge between the virtues and vices and chart out his own path.
Maulana Rabey Hasani Nadvi further said that Aql without Ilm is a waste rather in some extreme cases it is a crisis. To keep the Aql under control Ilmul Wahi is conditioned. Maulanan Rabey stressed the need for acquiring the Ilm of Quran and Hadith because these ‘Ilms are a key to a leading peaceful and moral life in this world as well as for the success in the hereafter. Ilm is a food for self moral fiber. He said that the world must be grateful to the Islamic Madaris because they are fulfilling the mundane as well as the moral needs of the world.
