Philosophy of Education from an Islamic perspective


To understand reality, wisdom, and life’s general principles is to study philosophy. Search for ultimate truth, both intellectual and practical is at the heart of this work It focuses on epistemology, metaphysics, aesthetics, ethics, and history, among other areas of inquiry. Logic, both inductive and deductive, is employed by philosophers to uncover the truth or reveal reality. Epistemology is a branch of general philosophy that lends itself to educational philosophy. It establishes the educational goals and objectives that have a ripple effect throughout the educational community, society, and even into future generations.
Psychology, sociology, political economy, history, science and religion all have a role in the philosophy of education. Education is both a static and a dynamic phenomenon, which makes it a dualistic phenomenon. Dynamic or provisional: The primary component is dynamic or provisional, whereas the minor but crucial element is static or eternal. Education’s content is eternal, but the application and explanation of this knowledge, a significant percentage of it, is dynamic. A multidisciplinary approach was taken to the educational content. Individuals, society, and the passage of time are all taken into account in the study, as are the educational goals of a cultural, social, and vocational nature.

Formal and non-formal education are both valid options for a student’s education. Schools, colleges, and universities are places where students receive formal education, while they also receive informal education from their surroundings. Education, both formal and informal, is learned and assimilated through reflection and experience. This means that we are all lifelong students. However, we’ll be focusing on the educational philosophy of formal education. The three levels of education are primary, secondary, and higher education. Infants and children ages 3 to 11 are the focus of primary education, adolescents aged 12 to 18 are the focus of secondary education, and students over the age of 18 are the focus of higher education. In order to be effective, each educational level must have its own unique strategy.

There is a wide range of educational resources available in each neighbourhood. Secular societies have a different approach to content than ideological societies. For this reason, the way in which various societies present and execute information varies as well Our approach is focused primarily on the Islamic perspective on education.


An educated person is one who has been educated in some way, whether it is by formal schooling or informal education. Educere, on the other hand, is a verb that means to lead out. the external environment plays an important influence in the learning process in the case of the former. As a result of this, learning occurs when an individual’s inherent potentialities take precedence over the external environment, which is why it is called growing from within. While the social philosophers emphasised the relevance of external demands, naturalists and psychologists focused more on the internal tendencies of learning. Internal and external learning environments were given equal weight in our analysis, with a focus on both.
