Can a woman pursue her education?
In Islamic tradition, previously, a girl gets married as soon as she attends her puberty. Now a few parents want their daughters to be educated. On the other hand, they get their daughters to marry. Apart from this, they conceive soon when they are still a kid. Due to which their mind is filled with matured thoughts.
Some women are mentally strong and intellectual. Because of their passion, they continue their studies even after marriage. On the other hand, rich people can afford a maid, where the girl can balance her family life and education.
Trauma during pursuing a degree.
If a girl of the middle family gets married. She should nurse her in-laws, husband, siblings, etc. She should wake up early morning cook dishes for both in-laws and husband. Additional to that she should travel. Furthermore, she should reach home early and look attractive to her hubby instead of her pressure.
She can solely spend little time on education, subsequently, she should attend the calls of her husband though she is jaded. If a girl does not conceive early both in-laws and parents will nag her. If she is expecting she should prolong. Because of this, she might fall sick, pale. After delivery, interest in education is lost. Frustration results at the end.
Sometimes the in-laws and husband oath the girl for education. Meanwhile, when she is pregnant she will be stopped slowly. Finally, after delivery, they will stop the girl’s education. If she undergoes c session delivery, if the infant dies, the one who will be ultimately blamed is Woman. They will curse, abuse, and at the end up in divorce.
If your wife wants to pursue her degree give her time till she completes. If not, get engaged to her until she completes. Give her strength and support. Besides, nourish her, make her goal your goal. Help her in her assignments and tasks. Motivate her skills. Select her attire for the next day. Feed her if she is so weary. During exams maintain distance. Teach her with easy methods. Wish her with best wishes. Gift her with new stationaries or bags etc.
During PTA’s visit her college. Encourage her by telling you are so proud of her. Have a maid for cooking in the afternoon. Distribute the works at least once in a blue moon. If your family members are against her don’t leave her aloof. During pregnancy treat her as a kid, be early to home. Because she might feel like a kid according to her psychology.
Women also used to take lessons in religion and morality from Prophet Muhammad sallahu Alayhi wa sallam along with men. Ayesha Rathi Allahu anha thought for bith women and men. Prophet Muhammad sallahu Alayhi wa sallam said: “If a person has a slave girl, then he educates her liberally and trains her in the best manner and culture, then sets her free and marries her, he has a double reward[ from his lord]”.
This show that for acquiring knowledge and culture training, Islam does not allow ant distinction between men and women. In the Islamic point of view, the right sort of education for a woman is that which prepares her to become a good wife, good mother, and good housekeeper. Therefore, she should be well versed it will help her to become a good human. If a woman is desirous and has passion towards any field of education, slam does not restrict her
Prophet Muhammad Sallahu Alayhi wa sallam said :
«مَنْ سَلَكَ طَرِيقًا يَلْتَمِسُ فِيهِ عِلْمًا سَهَّلَ اللهُ لَهُ بِهِ طَرِيقًا إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ». Allah Almighty makes the path to paradise easier for him who walks on it for getting knowledge. [Narrated by Muslim in al-Sahih]
The Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallahu Alayhi wa Sallam also said at another place:
«اُطْلُبُوا الْعِلْمَ وَلَوْ بِالصِّينِ».
Acquire knowledge even if you may have to go to China for it. [Narrated by al-Bazzar in al-Musnad]
I would like to conclude by a short note do not stop a woman’s education let her learn till she is on her deathbed.
