Islam is one of the most trustworthy religions in the world, and have taught us peace and tolerance for many years. Here we are describing the Islamic Education in the World.
The Holy Quran is the most sacred book in Islam and has taught us great knowledge which has no limits. In simple terms, Education is the knowledge that put’s us on our maximum effort. Without education, there’s no path for your future. It makes us think right and grant us to believe in what is good and what is evil.
The reflective book of the Holy Quran is so rich in knowledge, one can easily find the best guidance of this world. It conveys a new message to humanity and teaches us the boundaries of ethics. Not only this, many non-muslims around the world read this book and quote many Surahs on their daily educational institute.
The Holy Quran says.
“Are those who have knowledge equal to those who do not have knowledge?” (39:9)
Islamic Education in the World
The Islamic education system is one of the best education systems in the world. Muslims are one of the most educated communities in the world. They have equal rights for both men and women.
Muslims women are most educated in terms of both spiritual and worldly knowledge.
The Holy book of Islam teaches us two kinds of Knowledge: knowledge about religion and knowledge about the world.
The simplest type of education for Muslims can be offered in the Mosques. They have Emam (Religion teachers) who teach some of the basic knowledge of Islam.
For worldly knowledge, there are many other educational institutes that you can refer to. In fact, in Islamic countries like Pakistan and Saudia Arabia, Islamic studies are compulsory in High School.
Important institutes are also developed in Western Islam, to teach and research on different topics. The contribution of these institutions towards the path of knowledge is vast. Muslim scholars also have a great contribution in many educational niches.
For example, Muslims scholars have measured the size of the Earth, explain the field of Physics (gravity, twilight, capillary attraction and refraction of light). Islamic scholars have also contributed to the field of Medication. They have discovered the cause of certain diseases, have corrected diagnoses, and made use of drugs, foods, and herbs to create medication.
Seek Knowledge whenever possible
“Seek Knowledge from the cradle to the grave”. The Prophet of Islam (Peace Be Upon Him)
Islam teaches us to seek knowledge, even if we have to distant to China. The Prophet of Islam also provides us with the benefits of teaching other people. In the battle of Badr, Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said that if one Prisoner teaches ten Muslims teacher, then he will be set free.
Islamic Narrative in the World
There are difficult times in the world, and many western countries have negative thoughts about Islam. They think that Muslims are under-educated and spread terror in the world. Today, Muslim countries are one of the most peaceful countries in the world. They have lower rates of any terror that the westerns face. Then the world has to understand, who is under-educated?
The Muslims scholars must discuss, study, and debate the teaching of Islam towards the western world. We should make our future generation enthusiastic and should teach them sincerity, generosity, freedom of love, and self-sacrifice.
Islamic education institute is always open for anyone seeking knowledge. Education in Islam is straightforward, acquire knowledge of intellectual and develop spiritual knowledge. Once you think you have the right knowledge, teach it to others and further polish it. Acquiring knowledge in Islam is not intended to an end, but it is the beginning of a new generation.
