Tarbiyah October Updates
This October MCE Team heald a Spiritual Development programme for the Madrasah teachers. The Spiritual Development Programme (SDP) combines modern interactive teaching methods with classical Islamic scholarship to offer madrasah teachers practical advice on how they can enhance their spirituality and have a more positive impact on the children they teach. The programme is based on the teachings of the Qur’an and the Ahl al-Bayt (A), and many parts of it can be found in the works of leading scholars of Islamic Ethics. The course is not intended to be a purely cognitive exercise but rather a catalyst for self-improvement through action
The aims of the programme were as follows:
• To increase awareness about spirituality and its importance
• To facilitate reflection on one’s own spirituality
• To present manageable strategies for spiritual growth
• To inspire continuous seeking of spiritual development
• To help introduce deeper levels of spirituality into the classroom
