Islamizing the taleem ….. – 59 (Importance of correct perception development)

17 Dec

(My dialogue through email with a group on the Topic: Islamizing the Taleem and Tarbiyah of our children)

Assalamu Alaikum,

‘Begin with the end in mind’ is one of the wisest advises. If the ends are not clear we will most certainly make a lot of deviations and may land at the wrong place. This may not be as important in many of our actions but when the education of a child is concerned, this is of prime importance. Because whatever experiences and learning we pass our children through, will most certainly leave its lasting effect on the child. Correct or incorrect education will certainly show up in your child’s character/ personality. The confusion is, what is good education and what is not good education? To develop this furqan I believe it is imperative (very, very important) that we understand the process of how, and what education effects in a person. I am amazed that presently this factor is being totally ignored not only by common man but the educationists as well. If they were aware of same, they would not be providing western secular education to our children.

I know many or some among the audience may be getting impatient over this time taking discussion, but I can see it quite clearly that once they are aware of the processes in education they will be able to look at education from the right perspective and right direction, Insha’Allah.

The process of individual’s perception or thought structure development is not only important to understand, it is vital. Do we not hear our ulama (learned people) talking so much of Zehan Sazi (thought development)? Because it is the zehan (thinking style) of a person which will make her/him internalize beliefs and conduct actions. The actions certainly reflects the mind set of a person, does it not?
