A Study of Sidi Mamman Asarakkawa Institute for Qur’an and General Studies, Sokoto State.
- BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Knowledge in its entirety belongs to Allah and man has not been given except a little of it. All praises belong to Allah who taught by the pen, who taught man what he knew not.
May the peace and blessings of Allah be on the prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) who made the search for knowledge as a sacred and obligatory duty on the Muslims. Literally speaking, education is said to be a day to day experience right from the time we are born up to the end of our life.
Islamiyyah schools was introduced not to divert the interest of the Muslims from acquiring of Islamic knowledge nor, drifting away from Islam. The mixing of Islamic religion and other type of education is purely meant to make Muslim children to acquire knowledge in other fields of knowledge such as the sciences which can lead them to acquire professional courses such as, medicine, engineering, etc.
it is evident that the huge gap between the Muslims and non Muslims in sciences and art is because of the insistence of the Muslims teachings, Muslims children only Islamic studies.
Learning the glorious Qur’an is very important, but one also needs to learn other fields that relates to endeavour. Muslim children need to be professionally 11 trained and this can be guaranteed if Muslim children learn sciences and art courses this knowledge of the Qur’an can make a Muslim to be well informed about Islamic principles and values.
It will make a child to have the fear of Allah as well as to worship Him with all his strength so that he can be saved in the life hereafter. With a good sound of knowledge or Islamic knowledge, requires that Muslim children should also have a good and a sound knowledge on general studies.
