Hazrat Molana peer Zulfiqar Ahmed Naqshbandi states that we should make at least one masjid and madersa in life. The environment of masjid and madersa are so valued to Allah (S.W.T) and His Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) that when Allah unfolded this planet Earth with His power, He located Baitullah at the pont of start Allah (S.W.T), as He described in His holy book (Surah Ale-Imran: verse 96). Further Allah (S.W.T) started the revelation of his final book Quran, upon His last prophet Muhammed (PBUH) with reference to education. Our lord and Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) when migrated to madina the first thing that he did was the construction of Masjid e Nabwi and school (madresa) with the name of ‘Ashab e suffa’ for men. Similarly with the help of respectable wives of our prophet, education of female companions started at homes.
As said by scholars those parents who make their intentions for the education of their children a good deed is written for them against each breathe that their children made, in whole life.
The knowledge is actually Quran and Hadith, whereas the other subjects that we learn at schools and collages they are not knowledge. Indeed they are tools to earn for living which is a requirement but not the main objective of our lives. Our main objective of knowledge is only derived from Holy Quran and sayings of our Prophet (PBUH) Mufti e azam Pakistan, Hazrat Moulana Mufti Muhammed Shafi (rehmatullah aleh) defined knowledge as The Light which can’t leave a person unless being acted upon. According to Hazrat Imam Shafaee ‘knowledge is a light from Allah (S.W.T) which is not gifted to sinful person’.
In the current era of materialism it has become even more important to acquire religious education, besides other subjects that are only useful for this life. Only religious education can deliver eternal benefits for this world and hereafter. Further, religious education is not only important for men, indeed it is imperative for women also. It’s a common saying that A man’s education is an educated person (alone) but a woman’s education is an educated family. If a woman is trained and educated its benefits and impacts are seen for many generations. For this necessary requirement of muslim women, a religious institution has been started with the name of Jamia Ruqayah Lilbinatat at Ambala House, House No. 31/A lane No 2 Sector A-1, GECH Gate No 2 Township, Lahore. A unique feature of this institute is that it offers different programs for every age of woman.
