child labor. one cud also say tomorrow’s brilliant carpenter in the making while he thinks he is playing with his father. mothers busy in household chores. poors can’t afford fancy toys, so he thinks these r his toys n he is having fun with his father. however, poverty is curse. bcoz in future he will hav to drop skool & he cannot b the master of carpentry for the best in that trade. then probably his kids too will follow suit into the vicious cycle of poverty.
i dont believe creating a hype on ban child labor is adequate measure as it is a time tested common believe amongst the poor of having many kids & deploy them in jobs as early as possible in order to contribute to the income generation n eventually take the load off from the parents labor. parents hav to retire early for generally poor healths. so wot is the solution for the poors of a poor country? communism, socialism n capitalism failed. does islam hav solution? yes.
islam says first n foremost make the society decent, sensitive to humanity n fearfull n accountable to allah thru moral n values training. they r disciplined with the fear of hudud n jahannam n the dividend is a honest, benevolent n peaceful society. once this foundation hav been laid firmly, the trainings of all mandatory sharia laws will become self inspired. As a result revenues thru zakah will b so high that inshallah it will soon become a wealthy nation. when today nbr sweats to collect income taxes from 1 million, then everyone and that’s probably about 300 million will voluntarily queue up to pay up their portion of lending to allah ie zakah. there will b more than sufficient to retire such carpenters early with medical benefits, if needed n send their kids to skools of their choice – regular or vocational. so where is the problem with the islamic economic module?
wonder y the so called pandit worlds of ivys hav so much reservations n hatred ONLY against anything n everything islamic? isnt that only reserved for humanitys avowed enemy, truth hater iblis shytwan? of course, then also for those that wants to follow the shameless looser.
