Education is the only way forward for the Muslim world

On July 12, Malala Yousafzai, a 16-year-old Muslim girl, delivered an impassioned address at the United Nations to promote education of children worldwide.

As Malala so eloquently explained — and demonstrated through her example — in Islam, it’s not only each child’s right to get an education; rather, it is their duty and responsibility.

Imagine if people in Pakistan, which has one of the highest illiteracy rates in the world, were educated.

True Islam and education are the only way forward for the Muslim world, and Malala represents this hope.

I hope an agency as influential as the United Nations understands its great responsibility in achieving worldwide equality, prosperity, and most of all, peace — all of which are Islamic ideals.
