One does not need to look far to find plenty of evidences of the influence of education on many important aspects of people’s lives.  So, if ‘happiness’ is understood in the robust eudaemonist sense of key for perfect living, then education evidently has an enormous impact. Education has become one of the clearest indicators of life outcomes such as employment, income and social status, and is a strong predictor of attitudes, wellbeing, good Quality of Life etc. Following Objectives were formed for the study: (i) To Assess and Compare Quality of Life of educated and uneducated Muslim Housewives.
