Definition of Education
“Education is the transmission of civilization” —Will Durant, an educationist, historian, writer and philosopher (1885-1981) When a generation transfers its faith, beliefs, traditions, divine knowledge and wisdom, norms, practices, experiences, history, culture, language, and their heroes’ achievements, to the next generation, the process of this transmission is called “education.”
Children should acquire necessary education and skill that provides everlasting and real happiness in this world that continues into the hereafter.
An education system that produces a new generation; best in academic, best in character and best in spirituality and from where the foundation will be laid to produce future role models of the nation in all walks of life.
Purpose of Education
Explanation of Verse of Quran (a prayer): رَبَّنَآ ءَاتِنَا فِى ٱلدُّنۡيَا حَسَنَةً۬ وَفِى ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً۬ وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ “Our Lord, give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter, and save us from the punishment of Fire” (Al-Baqrah: 201).
Obedience of the Lord:
The Creator and Sustainer wish to see His noble creation (human beings) obey Him in the same fashion as all His other creations are programmed to obey Him. “All living creatures and all angels in the heavens and on the earth are in prostration before Allah; and never do they behave in arrogant defiance. They hold their Lord, Who is above them, in fear, and do as they are bidden” (16: 49-50). وَمَا خَلَقۡتُ ٱلۡجِنَّ وَٱلۡإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعۡبُدُونِI did not create the Jinns and the human beings except for the purpose that they should worship Me. [Quran Surah Adh-Dhariat (51): 56]
Role Model of the Messenger of Allah:
لَّقَدۡ كَانَ لَكُمۡ فِى رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ أُسۡوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ “There is indeed an excellent model for you in the Messenger of Allah” [Surah Al-Ahzab (33): 21]. وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلَىٰ خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ۬ “And you are surely on an excellent standard of character” [Surah Al Qalam (68): 4].
The Prophet Muhammad (S.) said, “I have been sent as a prophet to teach the attributes of the utmost best character.” So the main purpose of the Seerah education is to instill unequivocally the “best character” in the students.
“Our Lord! And raise up in them a Messenger from among them who shall recite to them Thy communications and teach them the Book and the wisdom, and purify them; surely Thou art the Mighty, the Wise” (Al-Qur’an 2: 129).
Acquiring education in not just a social requirement; it is spiritual and psychological requirement of every individual. Adam (AS) was superior to the angels because of his “knowledge.”
The purpose of the education system is for ultimate success on the Day of Judgment in front of Allah.
The Seerah Mission School’s education system is based on four principles: uniformity, availability, affordability, and universality.
The education system is uniform, meaning that it is not divided into deen (religious) and dunya (worldly) education and that it will not be divided into rich and poor. -The educational system; integrated curriculum covers both the systems of knowledge –divine and worldly (physical). -The education system is also uniform in the sense that rich and poor will go to the same education system, and admission will be not denied based on income and financial status/constraints. Financial assistance may be provided to the Parents who couldn’t pay the fees.
A network (chain) of schools will be established everywhere.
The education should be affordable to every parent. Collective community funding and donations will be collected, and endowments will be established to provide scholarships, and to manage and run the schools.
The educational system is not to serve only a particular ethnic, racial, or communal interest. The foundation of this education system is based on: 1. Unity of the Creator, 2. Unity of the human beings, and 3. Accountability on the Day of Judgment. The school is open for children from all ethnic, color and religious backgrounds.
