The workshop was planned in Jamiah Mansoorah Haala, Sindh. It is a big institution having more than 1000 students in it.
Four sessions were conducted in one-day training at this institution.
- 1st session was conducted by Mr. Hasan Aftab. He described that the society is changing on a larger scale. Our life has been heavily influenced by technological advancements taking place in the world. Humanity is facing new problems every day and even a common man can sense the thirst this world has for the solutions. But unfortunately, our religious academia is moving at a very slow pace to offer authentic solutions to these challenges. We need to realize this scenario, revisit our preparation, plan for our leading contribution towards humanity and prove that only Islam has the universality in it’s teaching.
- 2nd session was conducted by Dr. Shahzad Channa who elaborated as to how Ulama are the corner stone of any society. Their services are very important to build an ethical and moral structure of any society. If they do not play their role well, society will lose their sight and go astray.
- 3rd session was conducted by Dr. Attique Raza who talked about the traits needed for a teacher of religious madrassah. He discussed the economic challenges our Madaris are facing and what can be done in a simple and amicable way to overcome this issue. He further argued about accepting the responsibility of our institutions instead of continuous looking for outside help and ultimately getting paralyzed.
- 4th session was conducted by Mr. Bilal Idrees who presented 3 core areas of tarbiyyah for madrassa students. He said, by the time a student graduates from the Madrassah, we should have built his identity and have nurtured his character as an effective Muslim leader and have taught him the necessary life skills that are needed to live an enriched life in any society of the world. He further discussed the tools and strategies to make the Juma sermon more effective and more productive.
