Manhaj: A curriculum for Islamic Religious Education
This curriculum encompasses detailed lesson plans for standards 1-8 and forms 1-4, catering to the need of Islamic Religious Education of Kenyan schools.
AIMS OF THE MANHAJ CURRICULUM:
The aims of the MANHAJ curriculum are four-fold:
1) Religious – IRE lessons are expected to promote the religious understanding of Islam, and to acknowledge and respect other religions.
2) Intellectual, physical, and mental wellbeing – IRE lessons are expected to enable students to have a rational understanding of Islam, and to use reason in understanding the Islamic traditions. They are also expected to contribute towards the students’ physical and mental wellbeing, and in turn contribute towards the overall welfare of their nation.
3) Spiritual – IRE lessons are expected to inculcate piety (taqwa: being aware of the presence and expectation of Allah at all times), and to nurture students to become God-conscious individuals in all walks of life.
4) Moral – IRE lessons are expected to promote ethical values, enabling students to become good citizens, and role models in society.
The project was conducted during his term in the role of head of IE at the WF of KSIMC.
