    A Social History of Education in the Muslim World: From the Prophetic Era to Ottoman Times is a must-read for anyone who intends to explore the perspective of education that has been vital in retaining the essence of Islamic civilization and optimizing the strength of traditional Muslim societies. The book is a well-researched yet smart document comprising of six chapters that outline the emergence of educational process and pedagogy during various historic periods along with the required contextual details and important academic references. I believe, in today’s time when the world is fully dependent on western-secular education models besides a growing urge to look for an alternative, this book of Dr. Amjad M. Hussain can be instrumental in widening our scope of imagination and thought. I am grateful to Da’wah Books for introducing this book to me.

    A wonderful book that has been written through a specific lens of seeing the education system of Islam right from the beginning and the fruits it bore. It gives modern teaching methodologies a lot to think about and realize that not everything from the past is outdated! Children in ‘Maktabs’ were taught language, etiquettes and poetry in order that they become ready to accept higher knowledge in the years to come.
