Dear centaur, people do not lack education but proper education which is very different from what is taught all over the world. If we do not have proper way of life based education then whatever we learn we use it anyway we think it fit. For having proper education we need a solid base to start from. Can any version of religion or secularism provide us with that base? No.
That base can only and only come the message of our creator and sustainer and that only and only if people manage to understand it properly and then follow it faithfully to get the results it promises. We have not yet started doing that so we will have to wait till we have even that much sense to realise things. Even when we will have that base, it will take a generation or two to educate people about it so you can see how easy that is going to be.
Talking nonsense is easy for people but to come up with something worthwhile is very hard. What we call education at the moment is brainwashing of masses by the rulers, money lenders and mullahs etc with help and support of each other for their own agendas or ends. The real education is very different because it ought to reform peoples' mindsets, attitudes and behaviour so that they could live with each other as one people in peace to make progress and prosper as a proper human community to their full God given potential. At the moment we are living for petty personal gains at the expense of each other all over the world therefore we are inflicting each other with harms and destructions. This way of life that people have invented and adopted for themselves they call it education which is not easy to change or replace. Particularly if people do not want to know any other way of life than that.
People talk about living in peace but can they really do that by living by ways of life which can only and only lead to conflicts between them? Why people are in fatal conflicts with each other? It is because people want to dominate each other by undermining each other. The ways of life they have adopted are therefore for that purpose only. So how can peace break out of such ways of life that are supposed to lead to conflicts? This is why even when God sent people his messages the people in power tried to bend them their ways by misinterpretations and misrepresentations them and so they ended up controversial because the scriptures could not be bent their ways but then they did not actually reflect perfect message of God either. This is how people became confused about God and humanity and so that confusion continues. It will continue till people come to realise what wrong they have done and are doing and what they need to do to reverse the process and start again right from the start by deconstructing what is there and reconstructing it properly. I reached this realisation some time ago and that is why I started reinterpreting the scripture and I have been very much successful in doing that so far.
As for prophet and his supporters at the time their islam was very different from what we have today and it had been for a very long time ie since concept of kingdom based upon guidance of Allah for blissful, dignified and secure existence was changed to kingdom based upon individual rule in the name of khilaafah which was not khilaafah at all but imperialism in guise of khilaafah based upon guidance of God. In other words original islam was deconstructed and was reconstructed as we have it today ie just another version of religion like many others. This is why there is need for deconstruction of islam as a religion in order to reconstruct it as a way of life based upon guidance of God. So that on that basis there comes about a proper human community in the kingdom of God based upon guidance of God.
regards and all the best.
