The Curriculum Development (CD) team of the Madrasah Centre of Excellence (MCE), in conjunction with the Centre of Islamic Learning (CIL), NASIMCO, held a consultation workshop on the Draft Curriculum Framework for Madrasah in Toronto on Saturday 21 st June 2014. This was the last regional workshop that MCE was conducting on the curriculum framework.

40 participants from Madaris in Toronto, Buffalo, Los Angeles, Miami, Kitchener, Vancouver, Orlando, Minnesota, Boston, New Jersey and New York attended the full-day programme. The CIL team was represented by Al Haj Gulam Najafi, Al Haj Hasnain Walji, Siddika bai Jessa, brother Aqil Najafi and brother Arif Teja.

  

The programme included the following topics:

  • Introduction and update from MCE

  • Journey so far in Curriculum Development

  • Discussion on Guiding Principles

  • An overview of the integrated approach

  • The Qur’anic Worldview for the curriculum

  • Main themes of the Curriculum Framework

  • Presentation of demo lessons

  • Planning the transition and implementation of the MCE curriculum

  • Next steps and piloting

  • Questions & Answers

At the end of the workshop, the participants were asked three questions:

 

  1. Do you agree with the integrated approach?

  2. Should MCE proceed with developing lessons?

  3. Would your madrasah be willing to participate in piloting the MCE curriculum?

In line with responses from other regions, over 95% of the participants answered in the affirmative to each question.

  

Members of the CD team were Maulana Syed Muhammad Rizvi, Shaykh Safder Jaffer, Dr Bashir Datoo, brother Aly Nasser and Al-Haj Naushad Mehrali. For further details about the curriculum framework, please email mce@world-federation.org

The CD team members were delighted to have had the opportunity to attend the Recognition Day ceremonies at each of the three Madaris in Toronto (Al-Qaaim, Al-Haadi and Al-Muntadhir) on the day after the workshop.

We all woke up well and proceeded to the Haram of Lady Masuma (AS) for Fajr prayers. It was a humbling experience to perform our prayers in the Holy Mosque. 

Our classes began as usual at 10 in the morning. I personally enjoyed the lessons because they were directly touching our day lives. Most notably was the lesson titled 'Keys to Successful Adulthood' delivered by Br. Rajabali Alidina. In today’s lesson, I learnt about the role of a friend and how they influence our lives. I also learnt that any relation with a lady should be based on need and nothing else.
