What was the Islamic view about learning?

In general, the purpose of education is to serve only to God (Abdullah, 1989)1. As God is divined and he loves all the goodness, man should be good too. On this point, many Muslim scholars (Hadi, 1979; Al-Attas, 1991) referred man as “the image of God” (vicegerent of God), because he partaked the transcendence of God.

How has the Islamic perspective influenced education?

In Islam, the philosophy of knowledge or education is created by Allah and He is the source of authentic knowledge. It is compulsory to acquire knowledge and practice what has been taught. Whatever knowledge students acquire must be meaningful and purposeful, e.g. to help mankind solve problems.

How did Muslims preserve knowledge?

The Muslim conquerors eventually came into possession of various Greek and Roman manuscripts. Rather than destroy these works, Muslim scholars carefully preserved them, translating them into Arabic, studying them, and in some cases building on ideas set down by the ancient writers in their own works.

What are the advantage of Islamic education?

The advantages include the exposure of our children to different cultures and value-systems, communication with people of diverse beliefs and inclinations, relatively high standards of education, availability of educational facilities and fairly well opportunities to enhance and develop creativity.

What Quran says about study?

“And those who strive in Our (cause), – We will certainly guide them to our Paths: For verily Allah is with those who do right” [Quran, 29:69]. We must remember that studying and gaining knowledge is an active act of worship – it will not always be easy and remains a form of constant struggle.

What is the best time to study?

Although new discoveries prove that timing may not be everything, it is important if you want to create and perform at your best consistently. That said, science has indicated that learning is most effective between 10 am to 2 pm and from 4 pm to 10 pm, when the brain is in an acquisition mode.
