One of the problems plaguing many communities in the area of education is the lack of interest in the material itself. The cold reality is that many of our children are bored by the Islamic school curriculum, which prevents them from fully absorbing and understanding the information being presented. This is a major problem that must be dealt with in the most sensitive way. With years of experience in the area of Islamic education and social services, Abdullah Hakim Quick discusses practical ways to make the curriculum more relevant and interesting to the younger Muslim generation. An essential talk for school principals, teachers, imams, youth group leaders and parents. Other topics discussed: why some Muslim adults have negative feelings about Islamic education, how to get parents involved in the Islamic school, the balance between love and discipline, teaching our children the Qur’an, using the internet for information, weekend Islamic schools as an insufficient substitute for full-time schools, obtaining government funding for Islamic schools, and home-schooling. (Duration: 1 hour, 22 min) Abdullah Hakim Quick was born in the U.S. and accepted Islam in 1970. He pursued his studies at the Islamic University of Madinah where he received an ijaza from the College of Da’wah and Islamic Sciences.
