Education in Islam


Many Muslims, and non Muslims alike, claim that Islamic guidance dictates that Muslims only need to gain knowledge of their religion and nothing else matters.

When will you serve Allah?

In this speech delivered at an annual gathering of the Ahmadiyya jamaat Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah, reminds members that a person’s age may be divided into three parts. First stage is of childhood when he is weak and has little knowledge of the world and the hereafter. He cannot therefore serve Allah in any meaningful way. The second stage is when he is an adult and he gained knowledge of the world and knows what the greater objective is. However, the temptations of this world are such that he forsakes the pursuit of the higher objectives for the sake of the riches of this world. The Third stage is again when he is weak in mind and body and unable to serve Allah.

Here is an article which along with using some of our research goes into more detail as to the real age of Hazrat Ayesha.
