Education is a light to which everybody has the equal right.Allah has created both man and woman equally and has not drawn any distinct distinction between them.So there should be no difference of opinion regarding imparting education to women.So education should be universal.
A good mother can produce a good citizen.In order to have good citizens, Female education is a must.
Female education is not a new thing in our country.Islam has encouraged education and training to women folk.The prophet of Islam has made education compulsory for both man and woman.Once Napoleon said. “Give me a good mother and I will give you a good citizen.”A good mother obviously means an educated mother.So it needs no telling the importance of female education.
Woman are now a days as important as men in society.They constitute nearly half of our total population.So there can be no denying the fact that they too possess equal rights and duties as men do.If they get opportunity,Their genius,power and capacities will bloom fully.No nation can make real progress keeping a full half of it’s population in the dark.Again without education women can not be elevated.So an all out education should be imparted to the women folk.
A mother exercises an undeniable influence in the formation of children’s character and in shaping their future destiny.The things that they learn at home take a firm root in them.And it goes without saying that this learning they get mostly from their mother as they live under her direct supervision and constant care.If a mother fails to bring up her children become great,all credits goes to the mothers.From this point of view an educated mother is an asset and it is more necessary to educate women folk.
The role of women in making a home an abode of peace and happiness id great.Not only as mothers but also as wives women exert tremendous influence for good or for evil.If a wife is properly educated,she can manage household affairs efficiently.A good house wife is an asset to the entire family.She can keep accounts,control and guide servants and take initiative in many domestic matters.She can maintain the discipline of the house.
All necessary steps should be taken to encourage universal female education.It is a happy news for us that our government has recently declared free and compulsory education for rural girls up to S.S.C.A country can not prosper if its women are kept ignorant.We need good wives and good mothers to make our nation great.Without a good system of female education,this will not be possible.
