MADRESSA / ISLAMIC SCHOOL
Importance of Islamic Education
Islamic Studies is an essential part of growing up Muslim, in any culture and environment. In fact Islamic studies is a lifelong journey. Often the learning continues even in adulthood as there’re often aspects in the religion that requires revisions and re-visits. One of the most fundamental part of the Islamic way of life is also the ability to read and understand the Quran.
1. Islamic Education instills in a child the foundations of the Islamic faith.
Islam is a way of life for Muslims, not simply a belief. In order for a Muslim to grow up living their life in the Islamic way, children must learn and practice Islam from a young age. It is crucial to instill a good and positive impression of Islam. When a child is young, they are most impressionable and absorbs knowledge just as how it is taught. A quote from Al-Ghazali, one of the most prominent scholar of Islam states that a child “is a trust (placed by Allah) in the hands of its parents, and their innocent heart is a precious element capable of taking impressions”. From the minute a child is born, they start learning about life and everything around them.
The basic foundations of Islam will be formally taught through the Islamic Syllabus with subjects such as Fiqh, Qur’an, Hadith, Tawheed, Arabic language, History of Islam and our Prophet (SAW). A formal Islamic education keep the values and basics of Islam ingrained into the life of a child.
2. Islamic education educates the child with the right knowledge of Islam.
Providing Islamic education allows the right knowledge of Islam to be taught to children. Parents or grandparents may not have 100% knowledge or correct information as they may not have gone to classes formally for all aspects of Islam themselves.
Formal Islamic education enables a child to learn about Islam from properly trained teachers and from reliable resources provided for them.
3. Islamic education keeps Islam in the life of the child.
Many of our children attend secular primary or secondary school and sending them for Islamic education at the Holland Park Madressa will provide the opportunity of having Islam close to their hearts.
4. Attending Islamic education classes gives children the opportunity to make good friends.
When your children attend Madressa, even if for an hour each week, they are among other Muslim peers in their age group who are also learning.
Giving a child formal Islamic education is as or more important as providing any other form of education. For the best for our children and for them to grow to be good Muslims, we must provide them the easily available Islamic education for them to start living their lives with Islam from young.
