00:00:18--> 00:00:19

attending a conference

00:00:22--> 00:00:23

at the conference,

00:00:38--> 00:00:42

association of Muslims, the first national conference on Islamic studies

00:00:44--> 00:00:44

to achieve

00:00:46--> 00:00:50

the exchanging notes, Islamic Studies in high

00:00:53--> 00:00:57

school and Muslim school is made up of too much of the Muslim

00:01:00--> 00:01:01

ban, but is actually selling

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

the fact that it is a Muslim school. So

00:01:07--> 00:01:12

how to improve the Islamic section of it and how to integrate it

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

just

00:01:20--> 00:01:24

broken away for this particular program, inshallah.

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

inshallah,

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

in the context of the conference,

00:01:50--> 00:01:54

different parties that we speak to, that I've spoken about,

00:01:56--> 00:01:59

starting from the administration, the management,

00:02:00--> 00:02:02

the founders of the school, and so on,

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

and laid the foundations and the need to have had rules and regulations that

00:02:09--> 00:02:16

we're trying to achieve, can be the parents who are setting their children to these particular schools, we

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

need to answer the question why

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

children to a Muslim school

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

choice, you know, why would they do that, and

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

they are on the same boat.

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

Many

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

teachers who need to

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

teach,

00:02:39--> 00:02:39

teaching and

00:02:41--> 00:02:41

study,

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

to know, schools.

00:02:47--> 00:02:52

People send their children to these schools, and if people wanted only the secular

00:02:54--> 00:02:59

schools to send the children to, but if people realize that

00:03:01--> 00:03:06

Muslim teachers because of the shortage of teachers realize that

00:03:08--> 00:03:22

reason why the schools in effect, this is for the Muslim, when they should be governed by certain rules and regulations, they should attend to challenges in this specific manner. And then you have the

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

parents and other teachers,

00:03:26--> 00:03:28

as well, they also need to be on the same boat. And if you have

00:03:32--> 00:03:43

a lot of success and difficulties and the challenges are such that we're not some people another direction. Sometimes the founders of the school, or should I say the management seems to

00:03:45--> 00:04:06

establishment of the school have actually fought, and therefore we compromise a little bit of what we're not supposed to be compromising. Because of that, you know, sometimes we have parents who send their children to Muslim schools initially. But once you send your child to a Muslim school, you don't have to worry about the Islam, that your child will come up to person and so on.

00:04:10--> 00:04:31

We need to know that as a Muslim, you also need to be exemplary, you also need to be on time, you also need to move your life in order to show the child that you have had. This is our primary life when people send their children to Muslim schools that are not a Muslim.

00:04:33--> 00:04:34

So what happened was

00:04:36--> 00:04:38

the chance to come out and witness and

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

to be on board and everybody needs to

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

know discussing the challenges facing the teachers and principals to be the principal patient as well and facing the school itself. Personally and

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

I've already pre prescribed and I think they have agreed

00:05:05--> 00:05:06

soon, but to be able

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

to possibly even have

00:05:11--> 00:05:25

the parents who are sending their children to the school as to what is expected of them. But typically, if you're going to a private school as a non Muslim school, and your child has been banned or suspended, we will go

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

to administration.

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

At some point

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

when it comes to a Muslim school and your child has been round,

00:05:40--> 00:05:40

up and burned,

00:05:44--> 00:05:50

on the ground, to hide away from it, and to shy away from it. For this reason, we find

00:05:51--> 00:05:55

the discipline, sometimes it's found one thing on these Muslim schools,

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

everyone

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

has a parent who is possibly heard and the teacher

00:06:04--> 00:06:05

and everyone has

00:06:11--> 00:06:12

come to a Muslim school,

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

uniform

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

or private school, you won't even look at

00:06:20--> 00:06:22

a piece of rubber to hold the socket.

00:06:23--> 00:06:27

And this is the type of attitude, if you look at the private schools,

00:06:28--> 00:06:42

a lot of them are giving importance to academics. Today, I think a lot of the private schools, the elite schools have a preference for sports than anything else. So the time the changes, we don't want that to happen to the Muslim schools.

00:06:45--> 00:06:49

And no preference to secondary education

00:06:54--> 00:06:57

is extremely important. undermining the

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

cost of identity,

00:07:02--> 00:07:06

not at the cost of your Islamic values and morals, not at the cost of your

00:07:09--> 00:07:24

entire religion. And this is the reason why this whole concept came alive these scores came about because it was a concern about our children going out and studying in schools were being compromised.

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

Some people believe that a Muslim school is that

00:07:29--> 00:07:35

you start off in the middle, and you end up with a bra. And you know, you probably

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

have a scarf on your head and maybe even

00:07:42--> 00:07:51

you'd like to call it that is not only what makes a Muslim school, the dress code should be correct, agreed, without any doubt that it

00:07:54--> 00:07:56

should be an Islamic identity

00:07:58--> 00:07:59

child

00:08:01--> 00:08:05

child to misconstrue and picking them up with music playing

00:08:07--> 00:08:09

around in the vehicle and so on,

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

and so forth something from the school.

00:08:15--> 00:08:18

And the parents are so responsible that they don't understand.

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

Central African time, of course, we're talking about the Muslim schools,

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

you as a parent

00:08:40--> 00:08:40

in the context

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

of the continent,

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

Africa and in other countries,

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

those who have achieved those

00:09:03--> 00:09:03

systems most

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

Muslim schools and so on.

00:09:11--> 00:09:22

That is our results and our discipline and so on. A lot of people burn the school to discipline and let's go let's go to the root of it, you know, troubled by some of the things that are happening.

00:09:24--> 00:09:28

People were not looking at the root of it and what caused it and can solve it.

00:09:31--> 00:09:38

At the root treatment plan, you don't just do the cost because you know, you need to solve the crisis on the bottom so that it doesn't ever again and so on.

00:09:40--> 00:09:52

And if we are going to go back to the root of the problem and we're going to solve the root of the problem inshallah, we will be able to develop discipline and have an attitude and

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

not be compromised on top of

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

We are over and above that the discipline must be compromised.

00:10:08--> 00:10:12

Sometimes, in the Muslim school, people are not so serious.

00:10:14--> 00:10:21

Sometimes, sometimes the teachers might not be so serious, you know, people come in and go and so on. So we need to

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

make it so

00:10:31--> 00:10:43

that you can actually be consumed and taken by the child, and the parent wants to be on the board. Definitely, definitely room for improvement. But to be honest, a lot of the schools are doing

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

really well. And

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

I would prefer to have a child who has

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

possibly

00:10:55--> 00:11:01

students, our students will notice they're the subject or two and repeated mochica maybe the second time around.

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

To them conduct is

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

meant to have a child who's passed with flying colors in their character

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

which means it is a bad thing

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

flying colors

00:11:17--> 00:11:18

having a child with

00:11:21--> 00:11:21

a

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

17 day pregnant

00:11:26--> 00:11:26

and because

00:11:27--> 00:11:40

we need to face reality, and we need to find solutions, we need to instill responsibility within the children that will not happen if the parents are not responsible. So this is something that we inshallah

00:11:42--> 00:11:43

the conference of

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

Mashallah people are taking seriously

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

and so on. A lot of people

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

in preparation, and the the subject matter is powerful.

00:12:02--> 00:12:05

And presentations are second to none.

00:12:11--> 00:12:12

Leaders on the globe.

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

And we have done a lot

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

and that

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

goes to show how successful

00:12:28--> 00:12:29

association of Muslim schools

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

witness success at this conference

00:12:49--> 00:12:53

about the Association of missing schools, and we'll conference first one actually what's taking place
