The Goals of Education in Islam

Knowledge has no limits. The profound book of nature is so rich in content and meaning that if the history of human thought continues for ever, this book is not likely to be read to its end. The Qur’an, too, is like the rich and profound book of nature, with the difference that the Quran is articulate and fluent while nature is silent. But its content and resources are equally inexhaustible, and will ever remain as fresh. Every day it conveys a new message to the humanity. Quran Recitation itself broadens and sharpens the mind of humans.

Education has the ultimate importance in Islam, and every Muslim should seek knowledge complying with the words of the Prophet (S.A.W):

Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave.

Seek knowledge even [if it is to be found in a place as distant as] China.

The Muslims are pioneers in setting up the system of formal education, Muslims started the concept of Islamic Schools and in education Muslims are responsible for developing the sciences of physics and chemistry. Those were Muslims who first taught these sciences to others and later on other people made expansions in these fields.

The main goal of education in Islam is not only to get a good job or to earn a lot of money but to gain more knowledge, serve for the humanity and do something for the amelioration of mankind.

Qur'an and Miracles

Font sizeQur’an is the holy book of Islam, as the word of Allah and a miracle. The Qur'an has been created miraculously as a revelation from Allah (God), as a perfect copy of what was written in heaven and existed there from all eternity.

Therefore the verses of the book are referred to as ayat, which also means "a miracle" in the Arabic language. It is believed that the Qur'an as we know it today is the same as was revealed to Muhammad in the year 610. The Qur'an itself gives an open challenge for anyone who denies its claimed divine origin to produce a text like it.

The miracles in the Qur’an can be classified into three distinct categories:

• Inimitability

• scientific miracles

• prophecies


Inimitability is the theological and literary term for the matchless nature of the Qur'anic discourse. The insuperable literary style of the Qur'an is a proof of its divine origin, claiming that the Qur'an is written in a perfect, inimitable style that cannot be matched by human endeavor.

Scientific Miracles:

The belief that Qur'an had prophesied scientific theories and discoveries has become a strong and wide-spread belief in the contemporary Islamic world; these prophecies are often provided as a proof of the divine origin of the Qur'an. The scientific facts in the Qur'an exist in different subjects, including creation, astronomy, the animal and vegetables kingdom, and human reproduction.


Qur'an mentions events which were yet to come. These studies argue that such prophecies show another proof of the divine origin of Qur'an. For example, Islamic scholars believe that the Qur'an had predicted the eventual defeat of the Persians by the Romans in the 620s.

So make Quran Recitation a habit and devote some time to join Islamic school to learn the meaning of Qur’an.

The ultimate reason of success of USA is the well-managed and organized education system. is mainly provided by the public sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: federal, state, and local.

The government ensures quality of education in the country, making it available for every child. Major educational issues in the United States center on curriculum, funding, and control. Of critical importance, because of its enormous implications on education and funding, is the “No Child Left Behind” Act.

People from all over the world come to USA to acquire education. This education is helpful for them in their professional life as the standards are never compromised at any cost.

Being a secular country there is no well-known system of religious education in USA. Majority of the Americans are Christians, so there are few institutions dedicated to the religious education. But these are only for Christians. Muslims and the people of other religions were facing problems finding quality religious education for their children.

To cope with these problems, Islamic School of Online Quran Recitation learning was introduced. Muslims from all over the world are taking advantage by learning Quran recitation from online tutors.

Importance of Education in Islam

Education is the right of every Muslim, and it is made necessary for every person in Islam. Special emphasis is made on getting education for every Muslim. This education includes both Islamic and technical education conforming to the needs of modern life.

islamic school

The concept of education in Islam is not only getting decent earnings but practicing it in real life for the betterment of the others. It was as a result of application of knowledge that Muslims were the superpower of the world for twelve centuries.

The base of Islamic education is Qur’an. Quran provides complete way of life to the Muslims and following the teachings of Quran is the real way of eternal success. In the twentieth century, due to colonialism and Western influence, Muslim parents concentrated on imparting only Secular education to their children. The children who were not fond of learning were sent to the Islamic School or Islamic Madrasas. Due to which Muslims kept on getting weaker day by day.

We need to get both Islamic as well as modern scientific education to get our regime back. We need to hold the Islamic values tightly in order to get stronger again. For this purpose an Islamic school of Quran Recitation is established to teach the children Holy Quran. This Islamic School provides online Quran learning by trained Quran tutors.

Reward of Qur'an Recitation

Allah has blessed Muslims with a precious gift of Quran. Quran is the only Holy Scripture which is still unaltered today. Other books were amended by the people. There is a tradition in Sahih al-Bukhari, 'Uthman quoted Allah's Messenger as saying,

"The best amongst you is he who learns the Quran and teaches it."

When someone reads one letter of Quran, he or she is blessed with a good deed and every good deed gets tenfold rewards. In the month of Ramadan the reward is incremented to 70 times. As it is written in Tirmizi,

"If anyone recites a letter of the Holy Quran, he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a tenfold reward. I do not say that A-L-M (alif, laam, mim that precede some surahs) are one letter, but alif is a letter, lam is a letter and meem is a letter."

Quran Recitation is also the complete spiritual treatment of every disease. Recitations of different Ayats cure different diseases. Allah even doubles rewards for those who falter in reading the Quran but strive to master it. In a hadith related by 'Aisyah, Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said, "One who is skilled in the Quran is associated with the noble, upright recording angels; and he who falters when reciting the Quran and finds it difficult for him will have a double reward."

So learning the correct meaning of Quran is important to get maximum reward. An Islamic School is providing online Quran recitation tutoring. English translation of Quran is also taught to make people understand, who don’t know Arabic.
