The Prophetic approach and methodology towards the cultural and civilizational impact on education
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) preached the message of Islam in Arabia, which later on spread in almost all the continents, Muslims interacted with the adherents of different religions and civilizations. There are many instances and models from the life of the Prophet which guides us to understand the prophetic approach and methodology towards education and character building. These encounters and models include the migration, battles, treaties and dialogues within and without. In human history, the cultures and civilizations are compelled to relate to one another on a continuous and constant basis. The main theme of this study and research is to focus on the Prophetic approach and methodology towards education. The researcher tried to seek the answers of the issues of today‟s world which are being faced by the world in general and the Muslim Ummah in particular related to education. The study will sort out the guidelines which could be found in the Life of the Prophet and the attitude and Hikmah (wisdom) of the Prophet towards education seeking a Prophetic approach for the contemporary phenomenon of cultural and civilizational pluralism. What would the Prophet (peace be upon him) do nowadays in the modern world and what Sunnah teaches the Ummah regarding and solving these issues? This paper is an attempt to answer these questions.
