Education: Part 2

The Purpose of Education

Education is not an activity we undertake just for its own sake, but always because we want to achieve something or bring something about. Talking about education thus always raises the question as to what is the “purpose of education”. There are quite different views about what education should be for, not only depending on people’s understandings of what education ‘is’ but also, and more importantly, depending on the values they hold and the views they have about what education ought to achieve. Viewed from this angle it is actually quite difficult to make any clear statement about what the purpose or purposes of education should be. read more

It is related from Sayyadina Umar (Radiyallahu Anh) that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Use olive oil in cooking and rubbing (on the body) because it is from a Mubaarak (Blessed) tree".

Commentary: The reason for mentioning this Hadith in the practices of Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) is that if he encouraged the use
of olives, he must have used it himself.

I worry about our two year old finding and eating marbles if our four year old son leaves them on the floor. So I always make him count them when he is done playing.

One time he came up short by quite a few. I was frustrated as we unsuccessfully looked for them. After quite a while, he wanted to give up, but I would not give in. "We have to find these, or your little brother will eat them!," I insisted. Then he asked, "He is only a little baby. If we can't find them, how can he?"
