Aims and Objectives of the course:
Completing school education and getting admission to go to universities, some young Muslims might think of taking a gap year from pursing higher education in universities. Among many things that they would enthusiastically aspire to undertake during this time would be an ambitious course in Arabic and Islamic Studies. It is to cater for this self-improving need that this course has been designed and hence, this will be an ample opportunity for those who seek to embark upon a life changing educational journey.
Being completed the traditional religious ‘Madrasah’ and the Islamic education, these young people are beginning to think independently and develop their own ideas and opinions about the world and will make decisions that will shape the direction of their lives forever.
Whichever path our young people take, professionally, educationally, spiritually and socially, it is the duty of Muslims to ensure that they have the requisite understanding of their religion in order to live according to the upright principles of Islam and be able to positively impact the world in their chosen field.
It is to fulfill this timely need and the religious necessity that this course has been designed. It aims to equip young Muslims with essential learning and understanding to open their minds to the true essence of Islam. It will provide an understanding of Islam’s comprehensive message, its vastness and relevance in the modern age, as well as a renewed appreciation for the historically rich heritage of Muslim scholarship and traditional knowledge. It aims to promote tolerance with wisdom and knowledge, as well as a culture of respect and mutual acceptance in dealing with difference of opinion.
Teaching Methods and Methodology:
It is expected that teaching methods should encourage students to think, explore, and reflect and they will include: explanation of the subjects through power point presentations; engaging in activities including sharing issues or life experiences relevant to the topic; short students presentations; group discussions; role play; guided reading and supported self-study; directed tasks; individual and group tutorials; online quiz…etc.
