“Just imagine how much the educated world of today owes Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

And yet how ignorant and ill-informed and uncaring that world is about him.

Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, came into this world in early Seventh Century.

That was when reading and writing were generally forbidden for everyone except members of the royal family, the rich landlords and the most privileged few.

Many people were put to the sword for daring to teach themselves or others how to read and write.

In such a climate, Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, came and offered the world a “Book” – Al-Kitaab.

And he called that book The Reading – Al-Qur’an.

And he issued a common command to the whole world – to all of humanity – saying: “Read!

Then he said if any man or woman taught himself or herself one single passage of that Book, Al-Kitaab, big or small, that would be more than 200 times better than worshipping God in other ways.

And he said that to Hazrat Abu Zarr, a companion of his, who was a most devout and God-fearing individual, given to worship a great deal.

He didn’t say “200 times better,” he said “More than 200 times better.”

Does the world of today know anything about this man?

And does the educated world of today know anything about this most amazing of miracles that he gave the world: the Miracle of Universal Education?

Do the Muslims know about this fact?

Do the non-Muslims know about this most miraculous fact?

What would it take for the Muslims to get out and share this fact with the rest of the world?

And what would it take for the non-Muslims of this world to inquire and find out about it?” (Dr. Pasha)
