The different sources of these aids include grants and college scholarships, student loans, part time employment from state etc. The government every year donates thousands of dollars on education and grants and so you must surely apply for theses aids, no matter to what background you belong to.

College Education Levels The Playing in Today’s Economy Conquering College Education For a Better

Why I insist that you need a college education in today’s economy? Today more than ever, you need some form of higher education beyond high school. It can be a one-year certificate program, an associate degree or a two-year technical degree. You want to have a piece paper that proves that you have been trained to perform a task at an acceptable level. An employer wants to see that you can start something and finish it. This is proof that you have ambition, self-discipline and the ability to persevere. If you have the ambition and the ability to pursue a four-year education, you will create a better opportunity to make more money and live a better life for the most part. I am well aware of that you can create a great income with a two-year technical degree depending on the major that you choose.

In today’s ever changing work world, you will need some form of technical training to have any chance of landing a decent paying job. With the escalating cost of living in today’s economy, a minimum wage job is not going to help you in pursuit of independent living. I am adamant that everyone who wants to live a nice life needs to pursue a college degree. Not only will a college education improve your life, but it will also improve the life of your children and the life of their children. I speak from a personal experience as a father and a grandfather.

 

Can a college education level the playing field for you? The only thing that can level the playing field in any society is education. For most people on this planet, the only way they can better their life is through education. In the United States (the best country in the world), anyone who wants to create a better life can by either attending a vocational/technical high school or they can attend a college/university. A college education can afford you the ability to make an income that will allow you the opportunity to live a comfortable life. How much money you will make depends on the major that you choose and your personal ambition.

Will your attainment of a college degree level the playing field for your children and future generations? The answer is YES We are all role models for our friends, our children and our grandchildren. You will be amazed at how many people you will inspire in your lifetime. By getting a college degree, you will be a role model for your children and your grandchildren. Because you went to college, it is most likely that your children will go to college, which will level the playing field for them. This is the perfect example of paying it forward because each generation will do their best to better the life of the next generation. For this reason, you will never be able to repay your parents for all that they have done for you. You can only do the same or better for your children (paying it forward).

Co-education in Islam

Co-education in Islam- A brief documentary: Is it allowed or forbidden?

Co-education? Do you know what co-education is? It means that an education which is based on combining both sexes i.e. male and female. In co-education school and colleges there are no restrictions on male and female mingling, talking, having gossips and outing. It’s a fact that Islam denies mixing of male and female openly but in today’s world the schools and colleges run under Muslims denies this fact. Most of the schools even got a slap on their reputation when news spread in society about the wrong doings in school. Basically, the co-education schools were founded by Christians and other religions on the basis that it can bring male and female together in walks of life but during last years shameful reports are coming about the incident in co-education schools, colleges and universities.

 

Let me remind you about the history. When British gained control over the sub-continent they forced the locals (Hindus and Muslims) to admit their children in co schools. As a matter of honor most Muslims families refused to send their female children in co-education schools for which they were tortured, etc. In hadith bukhari, Imam bukhari wrotes:

Narrated by Abu Huraira (ra): The Prophet said, “Faith (Belief) consists of more than sixty branches (i.e. parts). And Haya is a part of faith.” (Bukhari)

The importance of haya (modesty) can be found in this hadith of Prophet: Prophet (saw) said: “Haya does not bring anything except good.”(Bukhari Hadith)

Don’t you think that co-education system in schools and other educational institutions are denies this hadith. Don’t you believe that co-education system in our society are promoting immodesty, I wish you should read this news of guardian newspaper where a strange incident took place in co-educated school

http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2005/mar/11/schools.uk

In our country too there are crimes committed in co-universities and colleges. Check it yourself about the hidden truth of Pakistan’s universities. These were some of the sites I found related to this article:

http://blogs.tribune.com.pk/story/10196/the-islamic-university-where-girls-were-raped/ http://www.dawn.com/2012/02/10/shame-covers-sleaze-2.html http://pakmed.net/college/forum/?p=11283

The text in the link states about some of the harmful out comes of co-education in our society. Do you like the thing happened to our sisters in Pakistan’s university if it happens with your own relatives or your blood relations. Of course not.

These reports may shock many you. If you are studying in Co-education institute think is it lawful in Islam it have open relations with your opposite sex?

Quran says: “Say to the believing man that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that will make for greater purity for them; and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do. And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; and that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands…” (Quran 24:30-31)

So do you see it is now allowed in Quran for men and women to gaze each other which is a common practice in our society in now a days. God save us from it. Inshallah If you are not yet cleared about the harmful effects of Co-education then you must watch this debate of Dr.zakir naik http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SstRRSh7oNk

In this youtube video a great Muslim scholar condemns mixing of male and females in co-education Schools unless and until women had not observed Hijab (veil) and under Islamic grounds. Even it is better that in schools male teacher should teaches male students and female teacher should study female students as expressed by Dr.zakir naik that if a patient is women she should be treated by same gender. Now, do you believe that co-education schools in our society are playing a significant role to promote Islam? Even they can’t do anything for us they should stop mixing of opposite genders to prevent them from committing big sins (gunah-e-kabira) such as adultery, fornication, etc. These crimes are one of the biggest crimes of according of Islam In some hadith and ayats of Quran the punishment for Zina can be judged

-And come not near to unlawful sex. Verily, it is a Faahishah (i.e. anything that transgresses its limits: a great sin, and an evil way that leads one to hell unless Allah Forgives him)- [al-Isra’ 17:32]

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: -No adulterer is a believer at the time when he is committing adultery- Narrated by al-Bukhaari (2475) and Muslim (57).

The punishment of zina stated in Quran is: “The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah, if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment.” Surah 24. An-Nur Verse 2

So it is a fact and hence proven that co-education system in Islamic society can harm our culture and can even led our youngsters to commit severe crimes as proven by the stories in the link. It is a matter of shame for our elder Muslims who run co-educated schools and allowed mixing of male and female youngster. Remember all sins are not highlighted. I have heard stories from my friends which tells me about crimes committed in their schools such as adultery, gazing, etc

However co-educated schools can be run with some new Islamic laws such as: 1.It can be made permissible for female students to wear proper Hijab under Islamic grounds 2.There should be separate girls and boys classes 3.Under Islamic law it can be made forbidden that opposite sex should mixed with each other openly and have sitting and gathering in campuses.

Remember Islam is the only religion which commands for Hijab to protect our mothers, daughters and sisters. Save your Mothers, Sisters and daughter from getting victims of Evil

Follow Islam, Serve Humanity
