Making Islamic Education Relevant

One of the problems faced by many Muslim communities in the area of education are the students and their lack of interest in the material or curriculum. The reality is that many of our children are bored at weekend and full-time Islamic schools and this prevents them from properly absorbing and understanding the knowledge being conveyed.

This is a major issue that must be dealt with in the most sensitive way. Abdullah Hakim Quick, with years of experience in the area of Islamic education and social services, provides possible ways to make the school curriculum practical, relevant and interesting to the younger generation.

This lecture is essential for all school principals, teachers, imams, youth group leaders and parents. Other topics discussed: why some Muslims have negative feelings about Islamic education, how to get parents involved in the Islamic school, the balance between love and discipline, teaching our children the Qur'an, weekend Islamic schools are not enough, using the internet for information, getting government funding for Islamic schools, and what about home-schooling?

These practises should be followed in Quran Recitation schools and other islamic schools. The purpose is to develop the interest of children in learning and islamic education. This lecture will surley help you maintaining good atmosphere in schools and giving quality education to the children which is more relevant in today’s life.
