Preparing Individuals to Face the World 

The Prophet prepared his companions intellectually and, on the occasion of the Farewell Pilgrimage, he commanded them to migrate outside of Arabia to spread the word of God. The Arabs interacted with people of other religions and this process led to the creation of what we today call the ‘Arab world’. Similarly, students too should be prepared intellectually so that they may be able to face the world. For this, they must be taught not only knowledge of the past but also, according to a hadith, knowledge of the present times.
