Western Education: Prohibition or Obligation Part 2

<br><br><br><br>Responses to 35 Commonly Raised Religious Arguments Against Conventional

This book, Western Education: Obligation or Prohibition? is in 2 parts, and this is the second part of the series. The book responds to 35 commonly raised religious arguments that some have used to discourage or prohibit conventional “western education”. It also argues for the need for Muslim leaders and communities to invest in and improve our educational system as a collective societal obligation (fard kifayah) irrespective of whatever name beneficial knowledge is called.

The first part of the book focused on the arguments against Western education which are related to the curriculum content. It addressed issues relating to the origins of Western education, the teaching of un-Islamic concepts, restricting the level and field of a woman‟s education, amongst others.

This second part of the book shall cover the second part of the major arguments, which are those relating to the learning environment of educational institutions. It shall address issues to do with the morally corrupting environment of some campuses, co-educating, dress code of especially female students, amongst others. It shall also address the minor concerns which include concerns about the western system of education breeding a corrupt nation, making teachers stand in class as a sign of disrespect, amongst others.
