The Purpose of Education

Education is not accumulating and regurgitating data; reading and writing is a very small part of it, and so is memorisation. Critical analysis and constructive thinking need to be taught from an earlier age. We don’t need anymore parrots, we need creative solution providers.

‎Education systems are dumbing down people; you have to process information and learn how to apply what was taught to you. When Quran was sent down, it answered questions of the people around the Messenger ﷺ, companions and others were forced to think for a period of 23 years.

‎Prophet Muhammad ﷺ encouraged thinking and the remembrance of Allah included meditating, pondering, questioning and bringing a change in their societies through their thoughts and actions. Continue your learning so that you continue changing.
