'' The meaning of education is expressed by three Arabic terms in the
Islamic sense. Two terms come from the Qur'an, the third is derived
literature. The first term ’tarbiyah
’ means ’fostering
growth’. It indicates that Islamic education is nurturing a
second term ’ta'lim
’ it refers to the imparting of knowledge. The third
’ refers to good manners & ethics. This term comes from
literature, so from the collected stories about Prophet
Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace
three terms describe that the Islamic education is fostering, knowledge
transfer and ethics. Probably the Western idea of education is fairly
similar but its base is different indeed.''---Reviewed by László Galántai
