ISLAMIC EDUCATION IN THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES

ISLAMIC EDUCATION IN THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES

‘This is the Book (the Quran), whereof there is no doubt, a guidance to those who are Al-Muttaqun.( Quran 2:2)

"Are those who have knowledge and those who have no knowledge alike? Only the men of understanding are mindful. "(Quran, 39:9)

During a visit to the deprived area of Calcutta, India in 2003, we were approached by a respected scholar of the region who requested our assistance in funding 40 small madrasah establishments, catering for the Islamic educational needs of over 40000 children. The madaaris at that point were subsidised by one generous individual who made an annual donation to cover the madaaris overheads. As the sponsor was no longer in a financial position to support the project, the madaaris were on the verge of closing down unless funding could be found. MMTQ undertook this virtuous duty in order to safeguard the Islamic future of the children in that locality. Thereafter, in recent years, the number of makaatib has increased to 50. The cost of running one madrasah is currently at £30 a month. Your contributions to this cause are sought in order to continue this noble cause. Please donate here.
