Education in Bangladesh. Islamic Education is not only important for our generation, but also for our next generation. It is important to survive our existence and our religion. But it is a matter of sorrow that our Islamic Institutions are going behind day by day. It does not go ahead properly, In the current world. What is our education al system, Where is our problem, how to develop? How to make it interesting and effective to students of Islam study? It is the time to find out the remedy to do out from this problem.
1) Islamic Country: Bangladesh is an Islamic Country. Majority numbers of people are
Muslim. We believe in Islam. So we have to know Islam properly and we have must proper knowledge on Islam. So for that we need Islamic education in Bangladesh.
2) Islamic Education: Islamic education is a process of learning Islam. By which we can
increase our Knowledge on Islam. Islamic education is not only Madrassa education but also life education. Islamic education is consisting of Holy Quran, Hadish, and Fiqh etc. This is only education of salvation.
3) Importance for generation: Islamic education is very much important for not only this
current generation, but also for next generation. If we don’t establish Islamic education, our next generation not will be able to learn Islam properly. If we have no proper knowledge on Islam then we will go behind day by day from the way of Islam. So they will follow wrong way. So Islamic is very much important for generations.
4) Survive our existence: Islamic education is the only education for survive our existence
properly in this ordinary world. If we are able to learn Islam properly then we will be able to serve the light of Islam to whole world. Then we could prove that this is only true religion. Then nonbelievers will follow Islam. Then we will be able to survive our existence strongly.
5) Our Religion: In this world, there are many religions. Islam is only true religion of those. We
have to prove it though our proper Islamic education. By Islamic education we will be able to learn about Islamic law and rules and education. Then we can follow our rules of Islam and we must have to do that, as a Muslim.
6) Why Islamic Institutions Going Behind Day by Day? Islamic Institutions going behind day
by day in our country for our unconsciousness on Islam. We are Muslim in name only. This is our religious status. We are not united. We have no Islamic mind. If some body talks about Islam, we are making some side talking. We have no interest to learn Islam properly. We have no interest on Islamic education. For Example: If any wants to make an admission of his/her children at Madrassa or Islamic Institutions, we discourage them. We say it’s a traditional education, there is no education, and we encourage them to get admission at English medium institution. So our Islam going behind day by day due to our unconsciousness.
7) How have to develop our Islamic education? Developing Islamic education in Bangladesh is
not an easy work, but not impossible. For that first of our entire concept on Islam must have to change. Every one of Muslims in Bangladesh comes forward to help each other and also to help Islam. Our intentions also have to change. For Example: which we do for Islam or Islamic education, we can not expect any back for us. We will be able to get result in future
life. If we are being united with helpful, sacrificed mentality and send our children to Islamic institutions, for develop Islamic Education, and then our Islamic education will be developed
How have to make Islamic education interesting and effective to students? Now a days system of Islamic education is very traditional, there students don’t get any interest. We know that interest less education is not effective. So many students neglect Islamic education. For making Islamic education interesting and effective, to students we have to change some system and add some system. Those are given below. a) Teachers have to friendly with students. b) Fearless education. There is no biting. c) Follow new books d) Use visual media e) Yearly picnic f) Yearly sports competition g) Arrange recreational system. Example: TV, satellite channels.
9) Islamic Education System in Bangladesh:
Education System. These are described below:
In Bangladesh there are two kinds of Islamic
a) Institutional Islamic Education: There are two kinds of Institutional Islamic Education
these are Government & Private. These are described below: i) Government Islamic Education:
(1) Madrassa: Under Government Islamic Education Madrassa is one of the
important areas where various Islamic subjects have been teaching
(2) School: From primary level to Secondary School level Islamic study subject is
compulsory for Muslim Students. Arabic subject is optional for the Muslim students in the Secondary School level.
(3) HSC to Degree level: Islamic History & Arabic subject is optional for Muslim &
Non Muslim students.

Islamic History & Arabic. So any students have the opportunity to study in these two departments & to learn about Islam.
ii) Private: Islamic study also teaching by the private institutions is available in
Bangladesh. There are two kinds of private institutions are available in Bangladesh. These are Alia Madrassa (Called Kharizi) & Kaomi Madrassa
(1) Alia Madrassa: Alia Madrassa followed modern method of education & use the
scientific technology to update the Muslim students which will help them to upgrade their professional life & higher study. In the Madrassa English. Mathematics, Bengali, General Science & History are also teaching to the students.
(2) Kaomi Madrassa: The teaching method of Kaomi Madrassa is traditional in
heritage from the beginning of Islamic Education. Only Islamic Theological books are teaching to the learners. No other books are teaching to the learners. After finishing the course from the Kaomi Madrassa the students become the Imam, Moazin, Khadem or the teacher of the Koami Madrassa. In the other professional life they can not enjoy because they have no education to perform the modern life. They are the actual religious leader in the society. All classes of people respect to them from religious point of views. At the time of birth, Marriage & death Mowlanas are required for all Muslim Peoples. They regularly perform their prayers in time. In real sense Mowlanas are creating the bridge with The Holy God of the People. They think they have the responsibility to teach the holy Quran to the people. If they can do it correctly they will go to the Haven easily by the grace of God.
b) Non – Institutional Islamic Education: i) Moktab: Muktab is the initial stage of Islamic education where Mowlana or Hojurs
are normally teaches to the children. Some times in the evening time adult & old peoples are also teaches the Kaida, Sipara, Aliflam & the holy Quran in the Muktab. In the Muktab three things are very important for Hujur to teach the learner. Firstly Arabic reading, secondly Memorize the Suras from the holy Quran, Thirdly Teaching the Prayer. If they can complete these tree things & the learner can read the holy Quran, Recite the Suras from their memory & perform the prayer according the Islamic Rules their course of Muktab is successfully finished. No certificate is issued from the Muktab.
(a) Islamic Study at home: Some times people engage the Mowlanas at home
to teach the Arabic reading, Memorize the Suras & how to perform the prayer.
(b) Teaching Quran in the Scientific method: Some of the Mobile Madrassa
have been started to teach the holy Quran through the Scientific method to the Children, Adult & the old people in the Mosque of different area of the city & the country. No certificates are issued from those Mobile Madrasas
(c) Media: Some of the Electronic Media are trying to teach the Arabic & The
Holy Quran through T.V. Channel & C.D.

Quran, Various religious books, Life of the Prophets, Islamic Magazines, Namaj Shika Book Etc.

broadcast the Islamic history, the values of Islam, to create the Islamic society, to update the knowledge of modern life of Muslim People from the Islamic point of views. Islamic Saria, Islamic Banking System, Doing business following the Islamic Rules & Saria. How to create the relationship
with the people of Islamic World & the non Muslim people & non Muslim countries. In this modern world Electronic media is very effective to teach the values of Islam to the People.
(f) Compact Disc: Some of the Organizations & Institutions are making the CD
for Islamic teaching to the people. At the subsidize price they are distributing these CD through distributor in the different part of the country. The Oldest people are much benefited from this type of CD. Because they can learn a lot of things regarding Islam from these CD & Also they can spend their idle time viewing the CD. (g) Web Site: In the Internet there is thousands of Web Side about Islamic information. From Bangladesh we can browse those web-Sides and learn a lot of things relating to Islam. This is the one of the best way to learn Islam if any one wants to learn Islam.
