In Societies and Communities with Significant Muslim Presence,
Arabic Language Must Be Made Part of Curriculum in
Primary and Secondary Schools
(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time.
Trying to Take the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And Which One Does Not?)
Recently, I had a conversation with some wonderful Muslims from a tiny little place on God's Earth called Trinidad. The topic for the most part was how to make teaching of Arabic Language a part of the educational system at primary and secondary levels throughout the educational system in Trinidad and Tobago.
For, that is Islam: Making good things happen for yourself and for everybody else.
And that means making Arabic an Optional Language Choice for all students: Muslim and non-Muslim alike, throughout the nation of Trinidad and Tobago, where Muslims number about 10 percent and are generally well-to-do, educated and politically involved.
So, there is no reason for a society like Trinidad not to teach its young people the Arabic Language in its schools.
And, more than anybody else, it is the responsibility of Muslims to treat this as a priority and get it done.
First, the local Muslims. Then, Muslims throughout the world. For, Muslims everywhere are one single body.
