About the Book: ‘New Directions in Islamic Education’ is a radical rethinking of Islamic education in the modern world. It explores the relationship between pedagogy and the formation of religious identities within Islamic education settings that are based in minority and majority Muslim contexts. Based on empirical research, the book engages critically with the philosophical, theological and cultural dynamics that inform Muslim educational thought and practice. The book offers an integrated model of Islamic education that identifies the heart of the Islamic educational imagination as tarbiyah, a transformative process of becoming. Abdullah Sahin, PhD, directs the Centre for Muslim Educational Thought and Practice and is the course leader for the MEd program in Islamic education at MIHE in Leicestershire, United Kingdom.
“This ground-breaking book is one of the most significant contributions made in recent years to Islamic education.”—John M. Hull, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom
