Solution? This can be achieved only when three attributes, namely, 'maturity', 'high imagination' and 'consciousness' come together. A person can wear this garment only when he has a plan of action. Shaykh-ul-Hind uses the words "bold but wise" (dilerāna magar āqilāna) for this.
Selfishness is a major obstacle in the way of working on this process. Therefore, he said that it is necessary to have complete control over the self. Otherwise, think that we have a lot of problems, and their solutions are also suggested,
but what to do with such a solution, which will perpetuate the same old evil and wrong attitude. Thus Shaykh-ul-Hind asks for a "very patient perseverance", i.e. a plan of action should be decided on the basis of all these points, which should be followed very patiently.
Huge results are not achieved in a day or two.

My father doesn't have any job. He works good and earns good. My mother stays at home. We are living good and infact I study in one of the major Indian universities. There's no "privileged opinion" in Shari'ah. The earning responsibilities are of men & they should fulfil them.
Our parents did our nice tarbiyyah and we are thankful to both of them. They didn't entertain us with any Western or "cultural" ideas — but they taught us the Islamic principles of life. We are Muslims and we submit to Allāh Ta'āla alone.
That said, there are certain responsibilities that women have to fulfill collectively like being a doctor or a teacher etc but "it is again not for earning money" but for the development and upliftment of the society.

Women empowerment means that women are women.
The are not men. They are women. Depending upon the differences between both, Allah Ta’ala gave them different tasks.
See for example:
Man was told to provide financial aid to whole family.
Woman was told to look after the internal issues of family.
How good are those parents who don’t give company to their kids?

In whole Islamic history, women have been Fuqaha, Muhadditheen, poets, teachers of great Ulama, educators & everything which a man was!
Just create the balance. Avoid the poison of Westernization. We are the people of East. East is known for its good culture, character, love, humbleness, care.
