Both gender are required to study in Islam

Do we want the girls in our country to suffer the fate of more than 3 dozen school girls poisoned in Afganistan? If not, we have to reject the extremist PAS party so that the girls in our country will not suffer the same fate of what had happened to the girls in Afganistan.

Around 40 to 45 girls had been admitted to the hospital by the police and intelligence department officials after they fell unconscious after smelling poison gas.

Ghani Khan, from Ghani Police Official had said that poison gas had been sprayed by the enemies from outside the High school compound.

During the Taliban control time of Afganistan, girls were discriminated and not allowed to attend school.

The first verse that was sent from Allah to our prophet Muhammad s.a.w. Al-Alaq said :

1. Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists),

2. Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood).

3. Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,

4. Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)],

5. Has taught man that which he knew not.

In Islam, both males and females are required to study. Therefore, the act of Taliban to make the girls/women to be stupid is against the teachings of Islam.

We have to reject all kinds of extremism by any party or individuals because it will not be good for the nation. In Malaysia, more females are studying in local universities since most males are indulging in negative activities such as drug addiction, becoming Mat Rempit, wasting time by loitering and disturbing passers-by and all kind of negative behaviour.

Narrated AbudDarda': Kathir ibn Qays said: I was sitting with AbudDarda' in the mosque of Damascus. A man came to him and said: AbudDarda, I have come to you from the town of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) for a tradition that I have heard you relate from the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him). I have come for no other purpose. He said: I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) say: If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, Allah will cause him to travel on one of the roads of Paradise. The angels will lower their wings in their great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge, the inhabitants of the heavens and the Earth and the fish in the deep waters will ask forgiveness for the learned man. The superiority of the learned man over the devout is like that of the moon, on the night when it is full, over the rest of the stars. The learned are the heirs of the Prophets, and the Prophets leave neither dinar nor dirham, leaving only knowledge, and he who takes it takes an abundant portion. Knowledge (Kitab Al-Ilm)' of Sunan Abu-Dawud: 3634

Islam is a fair religion which does not discriminates between men and women. Only petty minded men who understands the Quran to his own interpretation will discriminate women and not letting them to study because they want to suppress their intelligence. Girls/women living in Malaysia should be thankful that they don't suffer the same fate as the girls in Afganistan.

Say whatever that is on your mind. Heck! This is a free country after all. If the racists Chinese can swear at the Malays as much as they want, we can do that as well.

However, I will not be held responsible to whatever that you have to say. The comment is solely the private opinion of the author.
