"If you want my opinion...If you want a fatwa from me. I really consider it prohibited by the Islamic Law, to send a child to the Public school in this country. That is my personal opinion.
I would rather my child be illiterate.
Wallahi, as Allah is my witness, I swear to God; I swear to God, as Allah is my witness, I would rather my son was an illiterate honorable street sweeper, then that he was a Kafir, who loses his way in this world and denies his Lord. Or falls into the worst forms of sin that he becomes so defiled by this world, that even his own parents don't recognize him."
