Restructuring Madrasa Education

Madrasa Education Revolution: The surroundings of Madrasa children before 2010 and after 2010 are entirely different. Serving education for both in the same pattern never works. To get a clear picture, we need to find what are the exact problems the current Madrasa education system is facing and then define solutions


Problems of Madrasa Education


It is generally agreed that madrasa face many challenges. So, finding solutions should start by clearly identifying the problems. Only by objectively assessing the current situation can we find the right solutions. Formulas based on assumptions will not help much.


A professional, comprehensive survey and study should examine the problems madrasas face in the new context. A group of qualified, research-minded, dedicated people should be appointed. By looking at the facts that emerge, we need to wake up to the need for appropriate, timely change. This is a process that also needs to happen quickly.


Quick Solutions

1. Update the curriculum to reflect recent changes in science, technology, society and teaching methods.  

2. Today’s children grow up with technology. Their world is often unfamiliar to us. From textbooks to the environment, everything must change to engage tech-savvy students with skills, excellence, interests and opinions.

3. Fundamentally overhaul the teaching methodology. Make learning practical and socially relevant. Make it enjoyable and meaningful. Adopt communication media and teaching methods that connect with children’s world and match their interests. This requires greatly improving teacher quality and changing attitudes.  


4. Create opportunities for hands-on, experiential learning.  

5. Madrasas aimed to enable refinement. But achieving the goal overtook the goal itself. Students swallow textbook content to copy onto exams. Textbooks test knowledge rather than produce refinement. While their aims differ, madrasas should make life value-based education.

6. Make classrooms tech-friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Infrastructure development greatly helps attract students and enables learning. 

7. We face a “what’s in it for me” generation. While madrasas can develop careers, personalities, intellect and creativity, students don’t experience this. Teaching methods and appropriate activities could solve this.  

8. Classroom time is limited. Follow-up and engagement outside classrooms are needed to shape character and culture. Parents should directly drive them towards it while teachers through technological options.

9. Success depends on teachers, parents and management performing their duties, especially teachers adopting an inclusive approach, understanding the new generation, providing experiences and building habits. Never use negative methods to attract students. 


Achieving fundamental goals requires bold steps, hard work, sincerity and innovative thinking. Let a new evolution take the dias. We are looking forward to adopting changes that make innovation and growth.
