Ancient Poem

One of the most ancient and famous Egyptian poems is this one written by Egyptian poet Hafez Ibrahim who lived from 1871 to 1932.

He wrote:

“الام مدرسة اذا اعددتها اعددت شعبا طيب الاعراق”

Literally it means “the mother is a school.  If you prepare her well, she will raise a good nation.

Or simply it means, When you educate a woman, you create a good nation.”

I do not have to comment much on this particular poem.  It still rings true till this very day and I don’t think anybody can deny this.
