SEEK KNOWLEDGE (DEEN)
Securing your child’s Islamic future
The greatest investment any community can make is to invest in their children. Our children are our future. If we invest in today’s children and develop them into people who are firm in their Imaan, upright and respectful, and who cherish human value more than material wealth, then such an investment will reap tremendous returns and benefits for us as parents both in this world and the hereafter.
The Maktab has always played a pivotal role in developing the children of the Ummah. It is in the Maktab where our children learn the fundamental principles of Islam that enable them to live and practice as Muslims.
In communities where Maktab education is not provided, children grow up without knowing even the basics of Islam. They are unable to perform wudhu and Salaah and in many cases are not able to recite the Kalimah properly.
History has shown in countries where the Maktab was discarded; as is the case in many South American countries where Muslims had migrated from Arab countries; the result is that the very progeny of many illustrious Sahabah Radhiyallahu Anhum are living as Christians with no link or connection to Islam. Generations have passed on without Imaan due to their integration into Christian society whilst completely neglecting the Islamic education of their children.
Maktab education is essential in the life of every Muslimchild and it is our duty as parents and guardians of ourchildren to ensure they receive its knowledge. Kindly contact your local Aalim for information on enrolling yourchild into the Maktab.
