  6. 6. During the period of Moro resistance against the colonizers (Spain and U.S.A.), Madrasah Education was the single institution that made the survival of Islam possible in the Philippines.
  7. 7. The acceptance by the Moro Muslims of secular system of education in the public (government) schools was slow and gradual. The evolution in Madrasah education began in the 1950’s, when Moro Muslims were sent to study to the Muslim countries. When these scholars returned in the Philippines, they established formal Madrasah institutions offering the same Islamic sectarian curriculum that they learned from universities abroad.
