Description from the publisher:

The author explores education from the essential principles of Tawhid (Oneness of God; humanity; knowledge); fitrah (concept of human nature); and the role of humans as vicegerents of God on earth (responsibility and stewardship). The current education system dates back a hundred years or more and is in desperate need of a 'reboot'. In developing the industrialized society; the education system itself became like a factory; the end product being pupils who merely regurgitate facts; and themselves end up as cogs in the machine that is the wider industrial complex. The legacy of this is a soulless functional educational system that fails to develop pupils to meet the present and future needs of individuals and their expectations. This failure inevitably impacts on society and humanity at large. Society has long since moved beyond the industrial revolution and into an age of global connectedness where the sum of human knowledge is freely available via the internet. It is an age where people are generally more well informed and on a variety of issues. An effective holistic educational philosophy is required; one that gives full spiritual meaning to all that a child learns. It should equip children with spiritual awareness; morals and values; social responsibility and accountability; self-discipline and self-determination; self-confidence and empowerment; ambition and aspiration tempered with thoughtfulness and a sense of gratitude.
