Four curriculum models to shape future direction of tahfiz students
KUALA LUMPUR: The government is in the midst of drafting four curriculum models under the National Tahfiz Education Policy to shape future direction of tahfiz students, the Dewan Rakyat was told yesterday.
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki said the four models comprised Tahfiz Turath, which is the study of Quran memorisation with the books of Turath; Tahfiz Science (the study of Quran memorisation with Science subjects); Tahfiz Dini (the study of Quran memorisation with Islamic Studies subject) and Tahfiz Skill (the study of Quran memorisation with skill module).
“Through the National Tahfiz Education Policy and in line with the National Transformation 2050, the target is to produce 125,000 huffaz (Quran memorisers), or the Ulul Albab generation, who do not only memorise the Quran, but also knowledgeable in professional disciplines and areas of studies.”
He said this when replying to Datuk Nawawi Ahmad (BN-Langkawi) who wanted to know the education system for tahfiz schools in this country.
