If Only Muslims Could Fix Their Poverty and their Education [Quote – 119]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book II (101-200)

If you asked me what is the one thing that may be wrong with Muslims today, my answer would be: “Poverty! Poverty! Poverty!”

And then if you pressed me further, saying, “What else?” I would say: “Education! Education! Education!”

Of course, some people might lump all this and many other similar things under the label of Islam. But that goes without saying. For, Islam is all these things and all other things good.

But the real issue may be: When was it that Muslims last identified questions of poverty, education and lack of political freedoms and human and civil rights as being inseparable parts of Islam?
