All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)) Approach in being “educated with the traditional Islamic method”, may be subtly phased out with the (touted) “more innovative, lively, techno- savvy, charismatic, motivational” lecturers and teachers. Some may claim to be faithful to and may seem to be replicating the “traditional method “, yet, when critically assessed these approaches may be devoid of the essential spirit, unfaithful to its traditional history, methods, wisdom and the philosophy etc. , ignoring the ‘ADAB’ which qualitatively marks out Islamic education from others. This point may be disputed, and may not sound plausible especially to many who are unaware or unable to know the difference between them – to differentiate the genuine from the false, unable to detect the imitations being ‘marketed’ from the original.
  19. 19. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)) Even when similar terminologies are used, familiar methods and approaches employed, authoritative titles affixed etc. – yet, among the many criteria, the important aspects of a truly “traditional Islamic method” is that it is never approached in haste; every subject not disparately taught, haphazard without concern for merits and priority which Islam view each science; never truncated from its historical roots and Prophetic legacy; nor oblivious towards the aim, objective and desired outcome for which the Ummah has been assigned to fulfil. Alas, as pointed out by Prof. Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas, confusion in knowledge has led to breakdown in ADAB, whence levelling occurs and this has paved the way for false leaders to rise.

  24. 24. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)) At a time when people admire progress and equates it with change, we have to be very careful and concerned. Like a journey, our life and living requires us to look beyond and strive ahead towards a goal. But what should be our goal? Who sets or influence the setting of our goal? Even those whom we deem to be without vision, are upon a direction charted by the media, society, culture, sub-culture etc. As Muslims, we have our own guidance and guideline. And as the vicegerent of Allah SWT, ours as Muslim, is to uphold the trust (AMANAH) of Allah to preserve and protect. Whereas in todays’ context mankind is fiercely competing in exploitation and destruction; wanton display of arrogance by changing nature itself.
  25. 25. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)) At every waking hours – daily, we must be trained to be reminded of our true purpose for existence. When we neglect to do this, other agendas and concerns would inevitably replace this and our life- vision would subtly be shifted. When this is repeated it forms into habit, and when the people we interact with seemed to advocate similar thinking, vision and motivation etc. such a ‘secular’ worldview then becomes fossilized and ingrained into our core. Yet, if we pay utmost attention and accord utmost importance to the daily practices according th Sunnah as taught by generations of our traditional Ulama’ – making them as the template for our daily activities, while all others are secondary embellishments of the life of a Muslim, this shift can be prevented.
