Societies that Fail to Educate Their Women, Live Only Half-Lives
[Quote – 125]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“A society that refuses or fails to educate its females is fighting the battle of life with one hand tied behind its back. In fact, it is someone trying to live their life with half their body. How is that supposed to be possible?

Besides, why would anyone want to have a most uneducated woman as their mother, sister, daughter or wife?” (Dr. Pasha)
