Education has been held in high esteem throughout the history of Islamic civilisation. This book discusses classical Islamic approaches to education from philosophical, Sufi, and traditional viewpoints. A discussion of the classical subjects of scholarly study – such as Arabic grammar, theology, logic, and medicine – forms the basic of this book. Additionally, attention is given to ideals about teachers, students, methods of education, and higher education.
This book is part of a series of translations from the Encyclopaedia of the World of Islam (EWI) which was originally compiled in Persian. Other entries from this encyclopaedia which are available in English include Hawzayi ‘Ilmiyya, Hadith, Periodicals of the Muslim World, Muslim Organisations, Political Parties, Qur’anic Exegeses, Qur’anic Exegesis, Sufism and Muslim Organisations.
