    PREPARATION FOR LEARNING

  • It is called Ruh spirit, when we refer to its essence, which we do not know except very little. When it is in cognitive mode of its own existence, awareness of its identity, it is called Nafs self . And it may go through many states (AHWAL) The word Qolb Fu-ad heart, also refers to our Soul, when it is in the mode of reflection, or contemplation in understanding meanings. Maintaining its well-being and purity must be of the ultimate concern. When Allah s.w.t. grants Taufiq whereupon its understanding of Reality penetrates deeply, it is referred to as Lubb - innermost If is guided by Allah to go deeper still, it is referred to as Sirr secret But all these terms refer to the same thing i.e. Our Spiritual Self.WaAllaahu alamEPISTEMOLOGYAll Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)

  • All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)

  • Information gathered are like pieces of jig-saw puzzle.

    It may seem quite easy to get them, especially when they seemed to be scattered about almost everywhere.

    Some people are keen to only gather them, to pick them up, to steal these pieces, and are obsessed with merely having as much of them as possible not realizing its true meaning, its true significance, its true worth to benefit from it, its place and purpose to us. All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)

  • Thus, some people may feel that they have knowledge, whereas what they possess may just be merely information.

    Actually by knowledge, we are referring to the relevant meaning from that subject that we seek to acquire, arriving in our soul ... not merely the subject.

    The Soul (or sometimes referred to as the heart, mind or intellect) is the spiritual Self (of who we are our Self Nafs ) - our cognitive essence, capable of knowing and of learning.All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)

  • Thus education is said to be organic liken to a living organism which pertains, primarily, to the growth (of meaning, realization and actualization) of our soul - Self.

    Education, from the Islamic perspective, is not a mechanical construct, but it entails nurturing of a Muslim with Life and the Islamic educators to be likened as the gardeners not engineers.

    Actually, (in Islamic education), when acquiring any pieces of it (information), a student should also be learning what its meaning and significance is, and how it is to be applied (fixed or connected) unto what he/she already possess thus far increasing spiritual growth.All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)

  • This can only be possible when such pieces are given to them by one who has true ownership of these, and who consents to give these to them and helps them with how they should understand these, and to form (or attach) them unto their overall worldview.

    Thus, students must be learning from the right person, i.e. those who has seen the full (at least)- the completed picture.; or preferably those who have traversed the path themselves.

    Only such are the ones who can rightfully teach them how they are to make each pieces to become meaningful to what they already posses.All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)

  • And the manner or approach towards making it meaningful (enlightening), may be seen from various perspectives (angles) amongst fellow students in the same class, because each student, although may have a limited vision of what the teacher was teaching, may be granted new meanings - arriving in his soul. Thus in a traditional teaching sessions, knowledge expands and increases.

    Thus being physically present in class with a teacher, learning face-to-face, sharing what they have learnt with the teacher and fellow students, seeking constant guidance etc. has always been a highly valued traditional method (which, unfortunately, we may have lost or slowly loosing through neglect).
