A Good Education leads to Good Character

In understanding the concept of discipline with dignity as applied to Islamic pedagogy we must always look ahead while resting on the Prophetic tradition. It is because of the Prophet’s acknowledgement and recognition of the innate needs of people that allowed him to be a man of noble character and a role model for people of all faiths. As Habib Umar bin Hafiz, a notable Muslim scholar, has mentioned, the prophetic model that must be followed is one that provides,

“…excellence in translating the beauty, majesty, and completeness of Islam through … verbal conveyance and public interaction—all expressed in accordance with the sacred law, with both those near and far—and by spreading the carpets of the good and noble character that has been received from the magnificent Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. Therefore, … work hard to both manifest and self-actualize this level of noble prophetic character … familial interactions, as well as in other human relations.”

According to the Prophet, the best thing that a parent can give his or her child is a good education. A good education leads to good character.
