About this course-module • Notwithstanding, the essential spirit in learning at this “intermediate” level is the inculcation of “ADAB” as faithfully practised in traditional learning circles and Madrasah. • One current Muslims’ approach to learning which we have highlighted and criticised thus hoping to avoid is : “Their learning Islam as a subject.”All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  7. 7. About this course-module • Notwithstanding, the essential spirit in learning at this “intermediate” level is the inculcation of “ADAB” as faithfully practised in traditional learning circles and Madrasah. • One current Muslims’ approach to learning which we have highlighted and criticised thus hoping to avoid is : “Their learning Islam as a subject.” • We believe it should be subjecting oneself to Islam, insha-Allah.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )

  11. 11. About this course-module • As in all our approach in Education - we seek to provide adequate and satisfactory exposure regarding Islam and their nurturing as adults, mostly to new Muslims (converts/reverts), and in the English language, who may have been from other faith/system, etc. – Therefore, our curriculum may not necessarily be similar to what (born)Muslims here have been exposed to in the Malay language.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  12. 12. About this course-module • Yet, in as much it can benefit new Muslim, we have long realized that this curriculum in fact is what every young English speaking Muslims here need. Especially to prepare them for future work in Da’wah and in their assisting the education of our next generation. ‫والعأ أعملم‬ ْ‫ل‬ Wa Allaahu A’lam (And Allah knows best)All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )

  14. 14. COMMENTS AND TESTIMONIALS Extracted from some comments, reflections and feedback of participant who attended previous run of this moduleAll Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  15. 15. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants Alhamdulillah. I have benefited much from the lessons in approaching the study of Fiqh. The difference between knowledge and information is something to be kept in mind in the pursuit of learning. Before attending the lessons, I was ‘hungry’ to get my hands on the various books available. Not to mention, the internet too became a source of ‘knowledge’ for me.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  16. 16. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants I have now understood that mere reading of the books, articles and watching videos without the guidance of a teacher can benefit only in the least manner. Perhaps it could even lead to more harm than benefit. I have realised how important and crucial the role of the teacher is in guiding the student to arrive at meanings from the texts available.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  17. 17. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants The aims and purpose of Shari’ah eliminated whatever prejudice I had before attending the class. The media has made it seem that Shari’ah is a traditional, barbaric ruling system which oppresses women. I have now learnt that the Shari’ah is more than just a legal system; it is a divine- inspired path shown by Allah Most High for mankind.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  18. 18. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants Furthermore, things I’ve learnt Qur’an or a Hadith itself requires understanding of the text under the guidance of a teacher and should not be subject to our own interpretation. This is especially important since many of us who go back to the Qur’an and Ahadith ourselves can end up in confusion; as a hadith may seem to us to contradict another hadith, or a verse of the Qur’an may seem to contradict an act of the Prophet (s.a.a.w). Now I appreciate role of Islamic scholars better.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  19. 19. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants I appreciate Ustaz Zhulkeflee’s approach to teaching Fiqh, which follows the approach of traditional scholars, which is lacking in the current situation we live in (at least from my personal experience). I’ve not come across many Ustaz who will design the curriculum such that there will be a Muqaddimah (Introduction) module (across 16 weeks) which aims to establish clarity in foundational concepts in the seekers of ‘ilm before delving deeper into a subject matter.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  20. 20. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants Ustaz background in da’wah benefited not just the converts but also born Muslims like me. For example, the clarification on understanding between Fiqh and Shariah. Many also do not take the time to do recall of previous lesson, which is also appreciated especially since many learn the subject matter once a week. I acknowledge that Ustaz does not need to do this but because of his love and concern for the Ummah, he does it every week without fail. As an educator, I ikhtiyar to emulate a similar approach in the design of my lessons.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  21. 21. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants I appreciate the topic covering the historical background of Islamic education in Singapore’s context and how I have to be aware that there is a different curriculum for layman vs. that for scholars. Truly, the teacher will give what we need instead of what we want (this reflects adab). I really appreciate the sharing on the history of the spread of Islam in Nusantara and the da’wah and Islamic education in Singapore, where Ustaz shares a brief outline of the contributions of the earlier ‘Ulama. This indeed, is a ‘gem’ rarely taught by others.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  22. 22. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants This class is indeed something different for me. Though the contents may have mostly been familiar to me, the fact that these very contents are specifically organised into a course is something totally new for me. Normally, in a fiqh class setting that I was normally exposed to, the teacher will start by mentioning about the origin of the word “fiqh”, the various rulings of hukum taklifi and the 4 sources of sharia rulings in Islam, namely the Qur’an, Hadith, Ijma’ and Qiyas.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  23. 23. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants However, in this course, Ustaz not only went into most of these in depth, but he covered other aspects as well such that a whole course is made out of it. What is normally, at least to my own limited learning experience, covered in the first session of a fiqh class, namely the muqaddimah, is now a course on its own.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  24. 24. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants The most interesting and unique to this class will be the history of Islam in Nusantara and in Singapore. This is truly a void in the Islamic education in Singapore but all praise be to Allah (High and Exalted is He), Ustaz has truly given us several gems with which we now have a sense of history of Islam in this part of the worldAll Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
  25. 25. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants Many Singaporean Muslims, be they young or old, but especially the young, do not know about the local ‘ulama here. And yet, in this muqaddimah, Ustaz has given such valuable gems which, in all honesty, are very very difficult to find.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012) )
