ISBN: 9960031160 The movement for Islamization of education has picked up a great deal of momentum in the last decades following the organization of the First World Conference on Muslim Education. (sponsored by this University while it was still Makkah campus of King Abdul Aziz University, Jeddah) on 12-20 Rabi Al-Thani 1397/March 31 Ė April 8, 1977 at Makkah Al-Mukarramah. One of the major outcomes of the conference was the establishment of the World Center for Islamic Education on this campus. On 9th Safur 1402, WCIE formally became a part of umm Al-Qura University. Latter it became one of the seven research centers of the newly established Institute for Research and Revival of Islamic Heritage in 1406 H. The name of the center was changed to Center for Research in Islamic Education to highlight its exclusive emphasis on research in Islamization of education.

Description from the publisher:
The Center has so far published thirty four books and monographs on Islamic education. In view of the world-wide focus of the movement for Islamization of education, many of the centerís publications, like this Manual, are published in English language, also.
This Manual, like the previous book on Curriculum Guide for Islamic Studies by the same author, reflects the Centerís concern that while some work has already been done on the theoretical concepts of Islamic education, there is a need for concrete and practical suggestions for the implementation and adoption of these concepts. While long term research continues on Islamic education, immediate first few steps need to be taken in this direction for the sake of the positive and constructive progress and development of the Muslim Ummah. We, therefore, do not claim any perfection in this endeavor. Our only hope is that Muslim scholars, teachers, administrators, and students will find this Manual helpful in designing their curriculum plans from an Islamic perspective in various disciplines. We are certainly open to any suggestions and refinements for this most significant work.
