[A.1] Role of Madaris in the Societal Development and their Limitations
The madarsas have a great place in the promotion and survival of Islamic teachings and they have played a significant role in it. They are doing commendable works in almost all parts of the world. Therefore, no one can deny their services and importance. However, at present, especially in North India, they lack in modern education. Most of them are not teaching NCERT courses approved by government for modern education up to Secondary and Senior Secondary levels. There are several reasons for this. Even if they want to teach NCERT, they do not have the time in the current Madrasa education system as they already have a very tight schedule. The biggest reason is lack of time, capacity, financial resources and infrastructure.
[A.2] Government Efforts and Their Limitations
Although the Government of India is providing financial assistance to registered Madarsas to strengthen their infrastructure and other facilities so that modern education can be provided there along with Islamic education but Madaris do not have the proper system of teaching to teach both of the education simultaneously.
[A.3]Al Qalam Foundation Efforts
Al Qalam Foundation through Model Madarsa System (MMS) addresses this issue. However, this system needs a thorough revision of teaching material, work books, delivery system and training of the teachers. Programs for all of them have been developed and their implementation is under way through establishment our own school/madarsa/academy. MMS is intended to be implemented in all Madarsas in phased manner.
[B] VISION & THE MISSION
Model Madarsa based Madaris/schools will be equipped with proper capabilities to fulfil the need of community in terms of Islamic and modern education, leadership, centres of the communities need for their welfare and be adaptive to be upgraded continuously in Islamic perspectives and National aspirations. We are committed to do the following:
C] SPECIAL FEATURES OF NEW SYSTEM
[C.1] MMS- Model Madarsa System
Model Madarsa System is a system of education wherein attempt has been made to improve the educational system of Madarsas upto Secondary Level only so that they can meet the expectations of government and community simultaneously. They can impart modern education as per NCERT (National Council of Education, Research & Training), without affecting traditional Islamic education. Rather both the educations will be of high quality. The current proposed system is for this purpose and thus we have named it as M-NCERT (Madrasa Education system with NCERT).
[C.2] A New Teaching Approach: A Composite Teaching
Outcome based learning system has been developed using Composite Teaching Methodology. It covers NCERT curriculum with traditional Islamic education, The quality & quantity of both education is maintained. The contact hours per annum per subject are about 200 which are more than 180 which is the prescribed norm of NCERT. However it requires special training of teachers to impart the two educations simultaneously under the same room and schooling time.
[C.3] Multilingual Personality of Students
Apart from learning regular curriculum, the students will have the ability to Listen, Speak, Read and Write (LSRW) in four languages (Urdu, Arabic, English and Hindi). Any other local language may be added or replaced with Hindi upto primary level, if needed.
Thus the students will gain Multilingual capability in LSRW.
[C.4] Courses/ Multiple Certificates
Under this system, 13 years of studies will be completed in 4 phases in the usual manner:
Total duration: 13 years.
(* Under new education Policy, Secondary Level will be of 4 years and Primary will start from class 3rd.
Pre-Primary, KG to 2nd class will be named as Foundation Course.)
Thus, in 13 years, 3 courses (Maulvi, Hafiz-e-Quran and Senior Secondary Level (Intermediate) will be completed simultaneously and students will be able to get these certificates.
[D] HIGHER EDUCATION OF STUDENTS
By getting balanced education the students will be able to enrol themselves in any branch of their choice in any institute of modern education after MMS Secondary education. They will also be ambassador of Islam in those fields which they will join. However, the students who decide to serve Islam by specializing in religious education will be able to take admission in Madaris of Higher Education (Darul Ulooms).
[E] ESTABLISHMENT OF CENTRAL MADRSA BOARD
Since this system will meet both government and community expectations and the madarsas will be financially self-sufficient, we hope and appeal to the Government of India to establish a Central Madarsa Board which can affiliate such Madaris and can recognize their Dual/ Triple degree program. It will be a major breakthrough in the development of the country and the society. All intellectuals and community well wishers are also requested to utilize their resources and capabilities to fulfil this need of the time of the community. We also request your full cooperation in this respect.
