Edunatural (12)– the Islamic way to educate children (Redefining education: why is it important?)

20 Apr

Assalamu Alaikum,

After having gone through interesting step of redefining Education from our (Islamic) perspective, we move on to an even more interesting stage of defining educational concepts and Creator given learning faculties in a young child.

Imagine if we have defined education or the process of education wrongly, that means we have set on a wrong road and definitely, we will be traversing a wrong road which cannot make us reach our desired destination or target. Imagine an arrow fired at the wrong direction will most definitely hit the wrong target, if any. On the other hand, if we are clear on what we want to achieve and how we want to achieve that, then there is great possibility that with Allah’s help we will be able to make to the destination. Now if even one expires before reaching the destination, your ajr (reward) for the great deed is stored for you, which has been promised by our Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. And as the project bears fruit, no matter of your absence, the sadqa jariah (continuous reward) follows you till the day of Judgment. And mind that, for those who have realization and they expend on this cause, it will not be a small one; right or wrong?

One of the biggest dilemmas of the present day education is that neither it is as per our aspiration nor is it child learning friendly. Why has it happened? Primarily because it was designed and developed by a people who do not want to believe in the involvement of the Creator, and do not want to believe in a’akhira. Then they defined human and human objectives wrongly as per their assumptions and aspirations. Sad so, surprisingly we have no realization of this and tread there path quite blindly. Again I will remind you of the hadiths which predicts that the Muslims will blindly follow the other people of the books.

It is just a part of premise to our next step. Please do express yours’ opinions as well
