I would like advise the dear youth – for whom I am just as concerned as I am for myself and my own family – with eight recommendations that lead to complete felicity in this life and the next
The Curriculum Development team of the Madrasah Centre of Excellence (MCE) has recently released the Draft Curriculum Framework for Madrasah which was produced after a lengthy process of consensus and consultation with religious scholars, educationalists and madrasah teachers. A detailed review of the major curricula currently used by madaris globally was also carried out. A copy of the Framework document is being sent to teachers in each Madrasah in every region.
The next step is to hold consultation sessions in each region with representatives from Madaris in that region. The purpose of the consultation, which will be facilitated by the Curriculum Development (CD) team, will be threefold:
• To discuss the framework in detail and deal with any queries
• To obtain in-depth feedback from the attendees
• To agree the next steps
The first consultation took place at the Iranian Club in Dubai on 31st January 2014. 40 participants from 4 madaris (Satwa, Barsha, Qusais and Muscat) attended the full-day programme. There was brilliant input from the participants, 70% of whom were ladies. The quality of discussion was at a high level and it was in the true spirit of ‘consultation’. The feedback obtained at the consultation workshop will be very useful when preparing the final version of the curriculum framework.
The CD team also held informal sessions with representatives from senior citizens, past and present leaders, committee members, trustees, madrasah students and youths.
Members of the CD team were Maulana Syed Muhammad Rizvi, Shaykh Safder Jaffer, brother Aly Nasser and Al-Haj Naushad Mehrali. For further details about the curriculum framework, please email [email protected]

The World Federation’s Islamic Education department is pleased to announce the reprint of the very popular title: 'Islam and Religious Pluralism'.
This book is based on a section of another book by Ayatullah Mutahhari entitled, ‘Adl-e Ilahi’ (Divine Justice) under the chapter ‘Good Deeds of Non-Muslims’. It has been translated by Sayyid Sulayman Ali Hasan, and also contains a preamble by Sayyid Mohamed Rizvi who provides a comprehensive view on religious pluralism in the modern context.
