Salaam Sister.  Such an adorable topic.  SubhanAllah.   I really like the upfront and practical stance you have taken on writing this piece.  Indeed for a Muslim, knowledge or ilm (spiritual as well as practical) starts from the Quran. And then no matter what institutions you attend, the foundation of knowledge provided by the Quran stays in the heart and mind of a true submitter forever to help discerning true and positive knowledge with the use of patience.   So many points you mentioned ring a loud bell.  The issue about home schooling for instance.  I think the deteriorating mentality of many Muslim households could be reduced to less than half if only parents focused seriously on the feature of home schooling.  It does not mean not sending the children to school.  The idea is to provide a firm foundation with the help of Quranic principles, which will be enormously helpful for children as they grow to discern the suitable from the unsuitable in academic institutes.



BismEm



Knowledge is Never Secular 
Deterioration of human mentality that's apparently unfathomable, often interprets 'knowledge'  (الم) as a thing "secular."   Strange minds typically separate Quranic contents from academic materials, classifying the two groups as religious and secular, respectively.   Those folks with minds inclined as such, are, in my opinion, the emperors and empresses in the world of handpicked idiots!!    Dear peeps, there is no such thing as "secular" knowledge.  Whatever one may consider 'secular' be it technology, mathematics, science, medicine, geography etc.etc., all of these spheres have Allah Almighty as their First and Topmost Architect Who designed every specific field of knowledge at the very beginning.  Thus, to be logical, Faith cannot be separated from knowledge nor from factual life nor from pragmatism.  An institution or an organization or a group visited by secularists questing for knowledge can only influence the atmosphere, making it "secular."  But the field of knowledge itself according to its inner nature is (and will always be) designed by The Almighty.   A submitter (Monotheistic believer) with a thirst for knowledge who already has a firm grasp on the path of Allah will not be influenced by a secular atmosphere.  They will  make use of true knowledge and disregard the secular human culture that may surround it.

"Do you (think that you could) inform Allah of anything in the heavens or on earth that He does not know?"  (10:18).

Subhan'Allah.   This Verse is mesmerizing!  

 

I specifically liked your clarification of the sad misconception of this world presuming academic knowledge to be secular. Very correctly explained sister.  All knowledge is constructed (with different laws & rules) by Allah alone.  A lot of people who search for knowledge are the ones who may be secular.  Such folks strive for knowledge, yet they leave their mission incomplete by deviating and rejecting the truth when it comes to reflecting on the Source of every bit of knowledge they acquire.

Indeed Verse 10:18 is absolutely fascinating that occurred to me so many times.

All praise be to Allah The Greatest. 

Big thanks sister Heba.  That's the most rationally all-inclusive article I've read on this topic.    Allah bless.
