Man is incapable of bringing up children

The Imam considered the woman’s role in the house to be an extremely critical one and gave a lot of importance to the upbringing of children. Sometimes when we would joke and say that in that case the wife needed to stay always inside the house, he would say: “You should not underestimate the home; rearing of children is no small job. One who succeeds in bringing up a single individual properly has indeed done a great service to society.” He believed that a man was incapable of rearing children and this task was specifically designed for woman because a woman has more affection and the family’s stability ought to be based on love and affection as well.
