"Allah has made the whole universe nourishment not only for the body but for the mind and spirit as well so that we can worship Allah not only with our body but with our mind and spirit as well. However many Muslims today can only see the physical or outer layer of information of the universe and they end up worshipping Allah only with their body. This is not true servitude ('uboodiyyah) to Allah and is going against the teachings (millah) of Ibraheem (AS) and the practice (sunnah) of our Prophet Muhammad (SAW)" - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi
Proper nourishment is essential for the balanced development of a child. But today the whole world is mostly concerned (if at all) about just one type of development - the physical development of a child. Even this is sometimes compromised by the economic interests of nations, multinational corporations and the media. For example it is so common these days to see horrible junk food advertisements targeted at children. Moreover when it comes to intellectual (mind) and spiritual (heart) development no one has a clue about them. Even the educational establishments which traditionally were focusing on intellectual and spiritual development of human beings have totally lost their way and are now only concerned about the physical development by helping people acquire skills, certificates and degrees so that they could earn a livelihood. So it is no wonder that despite the advancements in science and technology the well-being of the human is at its lowest with soaring suicide rates, dysfunctional families, mental health problems, greed and youth unrest.
If this is the state of the world then who is going to properly nourish the mind, body and spirit of the children? And more importantly how would that be done? Only if we find answers to these questions and apply them we can expect to raise righteous, balanced and bright children in the 21st century.
