JIH President Asks Scholars to Keep Abreast of New knowledge

India Tomorrow

NEW DELHI—Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) president Syed Sadatullah Husaini has asked the scholars to keep abreast of the new emerging knowledge.

Speaking at a workshop on the theme of ‘Curriculum of Madrasas, Stages and Duration’ organised by the JIH’s Markazi Taleemi Board, he pointed out that those who gave up acquiring new knowledge and skills were left behind and became backwards because learning and acquiring knowledge is a continuous and lifelong process.

He said, “In this age, scholars and ‘ulema’ have a great responsibility. Now the whole world is watching you from the local to the international level. The duty to convey the message of Islam to the entire humankind cannot be carried out just by learning the English language. However, it will be possible to perform this task after understanding the views of the addressee, their status, psychology, cultures, behaviours and ethics. All students have different temperaments, abilities and talents. Therefore, we have to teach and guide everyone according to their abilities, mindsets and aptitudes.”

Emerging religious scholars and ‘ulema’ from various states and institutions across the country, including Darul Uloom (Waqf) Deoband, Nadwatul Ulama, Lucknow, Jamiatul Falah, Azamgarh, Jamia Hamdard New Delhi, Darus Salam, Umarabad (Tamil Nadu), Jamia Millia Islamia New Delhi, Jamia Islamia Ishaatul Uloom, Akkalkuwa (Maharashtra), Jamia Islamia, Sanabal, New Delhi, participated in the workshop held at the JIH’s headquarters here recently. All the participants appreciated the initiative of the board.

The workshop covered several important issues and topics, including revision of the ‘madrasa’ curricula and the inclusion of modern sciences. Preparation of textbooks for Islamic schools and ‘madrasas’, technical and skill training of teachers, expansion of Islamic jurisprudence and theology, formats for measuring goals, enabling students to get a national certificate along with religious education, incorporating useful components in the existing curricula and creating a spirit of discussion and research among students, were the main topics, that were discussed in the workshop.

JIH Vice-President Prof. Mohammad Salim Engineer advised the officials of the ‘madrasas’ to take advantage of modern methods of education. On this occasion, the director of the JIH Taleemi Board Syed Tanveer Ahmed talked about the directive principles for formulating the curriculum.

Concluding the workshop, education board chairman Mujtaba Farooq urged the officials of ‘madrasas’ to be aware of the latest situation and the government policies and to be alert to deal with adverse issues. Expressing thanks to all the participants, he said there was a need to think and talk continuously about the topic. Dr. Mohiuddin Ghazi was the convener of the workshop.

Scholars, who participated in the workshop, include Maulana Abdul Bar Asri Falahi, Mumbai, Dr. Waris Mazhari, Delhi, Maulana Sakib Qasmi, Deoband, Maulana Ahmad Ilyas Nomani, Lucknow, Dr. Tariq Ayubi, Aligarh, Maulana Umar Abidin, Hyderabad, Maulana Muhammad Huzaifa Vastanvi, Gujarat, Maulana Mahfooz Falahi, Bhopal and Prof. Ishaq Falahi, Delhi.
