Madrasa

Back to school

By Umme Ammarah / 5 Jan 2013

Schools are about to open and you’re probably feeling excited and maybe a little sad that holidays are just about over. Back to School comes with a barrage of projects, homework, sports practice and of course a day filled with pickups and drop offs.

Back to school time also means adjustments for children and families; the first day of grade one, new schools, new classrooms, new teachers and for adults sometimes new jobs.

 

From libraries to madrasas

Muslim Renaissance

Swiss orientalist Adam Metz (1869 - 1917) is a recognized expert in the history of culture of the Caliphate in the III - IV centuries AH (IX - X centuries AD). He did not turn to oriental studies but in the mature age. Before that he had studied law and theology. Having started with learning of Semitic languages, and having mastered Hebrew and Arabic, Mets then focused on the medieval period of the Arab East. By limiting the scope of his research with nothing more than two centuries, he carefully examined a great number of sources.

 

Artistic Treasures

By Muhammad Habib /Haj and Umra magazine/Jeddah/June 2009

The mosque and madrasa of Sultan Hassan in Cairo are one of the largest Islamic religious buildings in the world.

Egypt undoubtedly is an ancient country, full of artistic treasures. Two such are the mosque and madrasa (religious school) of Sultan Hassan and the Abu Al-Abbas Al-Mursi Mosque.

The mosque and madrasa of Sultan Hassan in Cairo are one of the largest Islamic religious buildings in the world. Built between 1356 and 1363 by the Mamluk ruler Sultan Hassan, the scale of the mosque is so colossal that it nearly emptied the treasury according to the Sacred Destinations website.
