King Faisal University in Chad: Challenges, Opportunities, and Future Prospects

  • Adam Youssouf Moussa

Abstract

Education has been necessary in our lives since antiquity, and will continue to remain so forever. Yet what kind of education has propelled man to maintain learning as the essential demand of life? What kind of education is required to develop mankind, to foster innovation, and to spread those theories that have contributed to man’s life and set him apart from other beings? Islam’s interest in learning has long placed scholarship and scholars in high esteem; however, in the modern era education has begun to take on a different form from the past. Historically, the Muslim scholar was multidisciplinary; he might be a philosopher, a physician, and a man of religion. In contrast, the modern educational reality is one of specialties, departments, and branches; of universities and institutes and colleges. Education itself is separated into old and modern; from khalawi learning in katatib to Muslim schools and universities. Universities in turn distinguish themselves based on ideology, whether Islamic, Christian, or secular.
