  1. 1. “ LESSON ON ISLAMIC CONCEPT OF ADAB” Intermediate Fardhu ‘Ain in English for Adults 16 weekly class starting: 12 OCTOBER 2011 Every Wednesday night @ 8pm – 10pm Wisma Indah, 450 Changi Road, #02-00 next to Masjid Kassim ANNOUNCING START OF ANOTHER CYCLE OF THIS MODULE For further information and registration contact Sameer Abdul Jalil (9669 8512) - or e-mail <sameer_al_abd@yahoo.com> Arabic (plural) of Adab : meanings – “good breeding, decency, nurture, good manners, refinement, cultured, decorum, courteous, etiquette, propriety, social grace, to educate, discipline, the humanities, etc .” sense of proportion and knowledge of their rightful place in the order of things, the absence of which indicates injustice AA-DAAB Course conducted by Ustaz Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail DUE TO REQUEST
  2. 2. <ul><li>After the basic course (usually for a child, as a primer) on Islam following the “ Islam-Iman-Ihsan ” paradigm, the subsequent lessons on the Fardhu ‘Ain would be to re-visit those topics again, but with an increase in depth and detail with a view to strengthen faith, and to motivate commitment and adherence. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  3. 3. Background information about this course: <ul><li>This too would be in accordance with the Muslims intellectual level of development viz. as youth, as adults, lay man, professionals, etc. Thus a different (specific) curriculum for each group would be best. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>This too would be in accordance with the Muslims intellectual level of development viz. as youth, as adults, lay man, professionals, etc. Thus a different (specific) curriculum for each group would be best. </li></ul><ul><li>In fact the youth at different stages may even require a different curriculum viz. Those in school, in tertiary institutions, in NS, working life, pre-marriage, etc. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  5. 5. <ul><li>Unfortunately, our community tends to adopt a single generic curriculum of Fardhu ‘Ain development, which traditionally would develop a Muslim into a scholar (a specialist) of the Deen . </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  6. 6. <ul><li>Thus we would have “ Aqeedah – Fiqh – Akhlaq / Tasawwuf ” (core subjects) as the follow-up curriculum subjects from the “ Iman-Islam-Ihsan ” primary paradigm. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  7. 7. <ul><li>Thus we would have “ Aqeedah – Fiqh – Akhlaq / Tasawwuf ” (core subjects) as the follow-up curriculum subjects from the “ Iman-Islam-Ihsan ” primary paradigm. </li></ul><ul><li>This approach has traditionally been the norm, with well-written textbooks as curriculum manual, available. And, for those who can follow, this approach is best. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  8. 8. <ul><li>And as an educator, I have already developed my “Intermediate Islam (English)” using this traditional approach which, as I understand, is to develop a ‘ Faqih ’ (a Muslim who has profound understanding of the Deen , i.e. an Islamic scholar). </li></ul>Background information about this course: “ ..they could devote themselves to profoundly study the religion and admonish (teach) the people ..” ( Qur’an: Taubah: 9: 122 )
  9. 9. <ul><li>Yet the curriculum requires long duration for the students to complete, and has to be approached topically according to subjects – because this curriculum was designed for full-time intensive studies. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  10. 10. <ul><li>When students today can only afford to attend classes once or at most twice weekly, many students wanting to continue acquiring Fardhu ‘Ain knowledge, would not be able to easily follow this curriculum. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  11. 11. <ul><li>When students today can only afford to attend classes once or at most twice weekly, many students wanting to continue acquiring Fardhu ‘Ain knowledge, would not be able to easily follow this curriculum. </li></ul><ul><li>Also those knowledge which they need to know, may be delayed due to this approach which tends to cover topic according to subjects, sequentially, not according to priority of needs for the Muslim. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  12. 12. <ul><li>As a teacher, there are many of my students waiting to further their studies in Fardhu ‘Ain lessons but may not aspire to be specialist of the Deen , only to be educated sufficiently so they can fulfil their obligations as Muslims. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  13. 13. <ul><li>AlHamdulil-laah, previously, I had embarked upon a new approach,, to address this shortcomings so that a simple yet adequate approach to teach Fardhu ‘Ain for adult Muslims in general can be given (adequately) to everyone – meeting their general needs for relevant knowledge, not confined to only one topic but widely grouped into a subject on “ ADAB ”, pertinent to their current developmental stages in life as a Muslim. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
  14. 14. Background information about this course: <ul><li>Course title: “ Lessons on Islamic Adab .” </li></ul>“ Adab ” is synonymous with “ ’Adl ’ “ (justice) and “ Ihsan ” (best conduct), for the absence of “ Adab ” denotes injustice ( zulm ) ..... And the entire Education in Islam traditionally can be termed as “Ta’dib”(inculcation of ADAB).
  15. 15. Background information about this course: <ul><li>Course title: “ Lessons on Islamic Adab .” </li></ul>“ We are (much) in need of a little adab , from (that of) going out (seeking) after much of ‘ilm (knowledge)” – Imam ‘Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak
  16. 16. <ul><li>Insha-Allaah, due to request by several people (especially those who missed the first run),this shall be the second run of the module. </li></ul><ul><li>May Allah azzawajalla , grant us Taufiq and Hidayaa , to attain towards all that pleases Him, and accepts us with His Mercy and Redha . </li></ul><ul><li>Aa-min yaa Ar- H amar-Raa- H i-meen. </li></ul>Background information about this course:
