WESTERN EDUCATION “OBSESSION”!!!

.

#EFFECTS

1) As soon as a child becomes a year old, we

start buying toys for him or instilling the love of

pictorial objects or cartoons into him…

2) The mother begins to teach him/her baby that: A is for Apple and B is for Ball, but doesn’t teach her

baby that A is for Allah and B is for Bismillah continuously.

2)At the age of two or three, we take him into a

day-care centre where his Western education

journey begins.

3) At the age of 3, s/he is in nursery 1 or KG 1.

Children ordinarily don’t like going to schools ‘cos

they are not used to it. They prefer the company

of Mummy at home. That’s why they all cry when going to school.

4) The child begins to observe:

#Everyday my mummy prepares me for school

#Under the sun or in the rain

#I have a unique uniform for school

#With time, the kid begins to love “schooling” because it looks to him like the utmost reason of

existence.

-5) At the age of 5, he is in Primary one:

#Everyday, the parents wakes him up for school

but not for fajr

#He is quickly bathed on school days but not during

weekends

#His hair is combed and his nails trimmed so that he won’t be beaten in school for dirtiness

#Everyday his assignments are checked by his parents but no one bothers about his Islamiyyah assignments

#His school fees are paid on time bt no one

cares about his Islamiyyah dues.

#The father takes him to school early “before”

assembly but the father doesn’t take him to Juma’ah early “before” the Khutbah.

#The child begins to reason about all these. So he becomes more inclined to school than Islamiyyah!

6) When exams are approaching, the parents be like:

“Hey, no sleeping tonight, you gotta read, you must

come first in class”

#So the child begins to burn the night candles but no one orders him to wake up for tahajjud, “…he should be tired. After all, he READ overnight…!!!”

##His parents be like:

“I will buy WHATEVER you want for you if you come out with flying colours”

But, alas!!! no one makes such promises concerning his Islamiyyah exams.

##During exam periods, parents be like:

Hey, no more TV until you finish your exams, no more visiting of friends, no more football bla bla bla.

###So the child begins to see exam periods as a

kinda mini judgement day!

.

This is how a child’s impression about Western

education is “conditioned” to look so great to him as if its the first purpose of creation!

#LONG TERM EFFECTs…

On the long run, the child begins to think wild,

read wide about life and worldly things, but

hardly thinks about the hereafter.

1) He doesn’t cry when going to school anymore ‘cos he is used to staying away from home.

Because of this, he wants a boarding school or he

wants admission into a uni that’s far away from

home! (Especially our Muslim girls)!!

2) They don’t wanna be under mum’s control

anymore. They wanna become their own “boss”!

3) When a teenager gets an admission into any

institution, he goes crazy, jubilating, and celebrating but when he is given an admission into an Halqah (study circle), he doesn’t even

wear a smile on his face!

3) They now have big dreams, career obsession, “I wanna become a Professor by all means”, but the young lad doesn’t care about becoming a scholar of the Deen!

And the parents too be like:

‘If u come out wit first class, I will send you to

“America” for your Masters’…

4) The child’s obsession about western education

increases the more!

So s/he wants to earn dat first class by all means,

even by offering herself to the lecturer or sorting

his lecturer!

4) That’s why you see that when Undergraduates

finally graduate from the University after their final

exams, they go crazy, jubilating, staining their

shirts wit markers, dancing, jumping, partying as if they have won a ticket to Jannah, you won’t blame them, that’s  because western education has been made to look like a TROPHY to them!

5) They are graduates and their spoken English is

mindblowing but they can’t recite Suratul Faatihah with Tajweed!

6) They contest and compete for SUG presidents, class monitors, school association Presidents. But when it comes to Sallah, they go and stay at the last line!

7) When its time for NYSC, the Muslim girls won’t hesitate to wear bum-shots and t-shirts, they “happily” run, jog and do exercises with men,

dance and partake in MissNYSC because they don’t give a damn what the religion says about all these because they already believe “anything” is worth sacrificing for education to prevail.

##Because education has been made to look like a

competition while religion has been made to

look like an “option”!

.

#PROBLEMS…

1) This obsession, makes our women refuse to

get married until they have bagged degrees and

masters!

2) It makes d men lazy to prepare for marriage

until they have gotten a well paying job, a car, a

house and a professorship.

3) It makes our women quote western “proverbs”

often rather than quoting Ahaadith.

4) Our children love soccer, artistes and

celebrities but they can’t mention 10 Companions of the Prophet

5) Our children now have a whole room full of

novels, western books, encyclopedias and the

likes but the only islamic book they have at home is

the Quran!

6) Our kids now think, being an “elite” is the

ultimate success while those “Imams” are

illiterates who are losers in this world!

7) When that student finally gets a job, he becomes “obsessed” with it too at the detriment

of his Deen.

8) He goes to work everyday including sundays

9) He is always on business trips

10) He leaves home for work before his kids wake

up and he goes back home late when his kids

are already asleep.

11) During Subhi, he is on his way speeding to

work, during Dhuhr, he is busy wit office duty,

during Asr he is in a board meeting, during

maghrib he is just closing for d day, during Isha,

he is stuck in the traffic jam, when he gets home

he combines all his Salawaat “if” he has the

strength!

In summary, this is the kind of AQEEDAH that

our obsession for western education has instilled

in us, if not for the timely guidance that Alllah

has bestowed on us, how many are people out

there who are still wallowing in this pool of ignorance thinking dey are d successful ones?

Am not saying we shouldn’t go to sch, surely

islam encourages education but not to the

extreme or at d detriment of Deen!

Suggest the possible solution yourselves as two good heads are better than one!

May Allah forgive and guide us, amen!

Plz let’s forward this to each and every muslim contacts
