The Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) and Education
Once the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) entered the Mosque before the prayer time. He found two groups in the Mosque. One group was busy with its own act of worship; some were reading the Qur'an while the others were supplicating. The other group was in a corner busy learning. They learnt how to read and write and discussed the teachings of Islam and their application to their daily lives. Looking at both, the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) said: "They are both engaged in useful pursuits. But I am a teacher. I shall join the group assembled to learn." And so he (P.B.U.H&H.P) sat with the group of students.
