The greatest investment that any community can make is to invest in their children. Our children are our future. If we invest in today’s children and develop them into people who are firm in their Imaan, who cherish human values much more than material wealth, who honour their parents and their elders and are generally an asset to society at large, then such an investment will earn tremendous returns and benefits for the entire Ummah.
The Maktab has always played a pivotal role in developing the children of the Ummah. By and large it is at the Maktab that the child is equipped with all the basics of Deen, the fundamentals that enable him to live and practice as a true Mu’min (believer).
In many communities where no Maktab education was provided, children grew up without any knowledge of even the fundamentals of Islaam. They could not fulfil any of the tenets of deen nor did they have the correct aqaaid (beliefs).
The Maktab education is essential in the life of every child so that he may become an upright Muslim. Maktabs Australia is focused towards establishing makaatib in order to help in providing this essential need of the Ummah. Your duas for the acceptance of this humble effort is requested.
Maktabs Australia takes inspiration from various successful maktab programmes such as Talimi Board of Jamiatul Ulama KZN (talimiboardkzn.org).
This is an excellent stepping stone towards the establishment of Islamic Education in Australia.
