Islamic religion has from beginning kept a high importance on Education and thus has been able to maintain its strong foundation. The concept of (‘ilm) has large position in the Islamic world because of its extreme usage in the Quran. Islamic education is emphasized in the Quran by phrases like”O my God! Power me with Knowledge” (20; 114).Such phrases in the Quran provide incentives to Muslim believers to search for education and Knowledge.

However, Islamic education is very different from western education or other type of education system since it rely its principles from the Quran. The coming up with Quran in the 17th century was quite a change for the Arab Community of those times. Which lead to reading, writing and reciting so as to get the utmost blessing of the Holy Quran.


The educated Muslims also referred to as Mudarris put all the effort to ensure that scriptures of Quran are all accessible to all the Islamic believers. They taught the believers in what is referred as Kuttab and the kuttab would be found in places like: mosques, homes and even in an open place. Although the historians are not sure exactly where the first Kuttab was established but it was believed Kuttab would be literally found in every part of the Islamic empire.

Thus Kuttab formed a foundation for the primary age kids and continued until others forms of education were introduced like western Education. However it is practiced in the Islamic nations. The process of Kuttab was mainly dedicated to small male kids, starting as early as the kid is age four, and was thoroughly taught on Koran teachings and religious requirements such as fasting and prayer.

The faithful believed that raising a child with the Islamic principles was Islamic obligation to parents and the society. They had strict rules in teaching children, where even corporal punishment could be given to children who were lazy and misbehave. It was essential to memorize or even recite the Koran as it was requirement for Kuttab.

I woke up to the realities of new dawn after long night of distressed sleep. It seemed soul of a poet was haunting my mind. I tell myself “Aah...look at the way I express”. Just the way I am right now.

Have you ever seen the beauty of expression? All that hidden exquisiteness in words and expression – Can you feel power of some words can bring change in your life alter your future and the principles of life.

When I read the sayings by Allah’s Apostle SAAS, it filled me with strange pleasure. How beautifully did He SAAS use the power of expression? He SAAS would take a pause while in the discussion.

He SAAS emphasized on certain point by repeating three times. How beautiful and amazing His SAAS manners of speech sound to be that He SAAS would make it sure the listener is understanding Him SAAS and comprehending fully – without any doubts of any kind. How thoughtful!

One can just look at the flow and see how carefully He SAAS selected the words - each one of them waiting to fit like pearls in the necklace. Like the jeweler who would start from the smallest ones in the beginning and then increases the size gradually when going towards the center.

And there it comes to the point of concentration - right in the middle of the necklace where he selects three huge pearls for an impression. He goes again with reducing the size of the pearls gradually until it ends with a loop on the string. How beautiful it is when Rasool Allah SAAS said by selecting every pearl with care.

All and every one of the words uttered by Him SAW is just like the pearls in a string. First, the small elegant ones then the big ones and when he reaches the climax during his speech, He SAAS stressed upon central idea by repeating three times the same word – like the three big pearls - of same size and the person is enslaved of their beauty and lost in their meanings.

Rasool Allah SAAS had this amazing way of mesmerizing the audience by His SAAS charming, stylish way, that is lighter on nerves. He SAAS would gradually go on building the attention, the atmosphere and rejuvenated the environment.

His SAAS speech would end in the same beautiful manner. “ahh…that;s the sign of His SAAS noble soul, high esteemed being, one cannot help but adore”. Sallalaho alay hi wasalam.

These are the points one should ponder... and adopt to be successful, to be popular and to be alive.
