About the Book
Islam has, from its inception, placed a high premium on education and has enjoyed a long and rich intellectual tradition. The edition starts with explaining the meaning of prayer. It further examines the concept related to women’s acquisition of knowledge. It explains that banning of women education under the guise of veil is against Islam and the teachings of Holy Qur’an and discusses the tradition of Women’s literary circles in the Arab world. This edition further assesses the dominant discourse on Islam and education that argues for an education derived from an exclusively ‘Islamic’ vision. In addition to exploring the historical roots of this discourse, it also analyses arguments for an Islamic vision of education, conception of Islam, and proposals for the implementation of such a vision. It also focuses on the process of modernization of madrasa’s organisation, curriculum and pedagogy according to contemporary education system. Hope this edition will be helpful for Muslim educationists and teachers.
