The Qurán is sacred writings of Islam revealed by God to the prophet Muhammad during his life at Mecca and Medina. The Qur'an is the sacred reality of Islam and is written in Arabic. Arabic is the sacred language of Islam because it is the language of God. The Qur'an should be recites in Arabic, whether the reader is from the Tunnis, Riyadh, Dhaka or Sydney. It is believed that Muhammad was the first to see the Qur'an. They do not speak of Muhammad of writing the Qur'an, but of his receiving it and reciting it. At the death of Muhammad, most of the Qur'an was already written down. Traditions associate the collection, together with what had been memorised, to Abu Bakr, the first caliph (successor of Muhammad as Islamic leader). In the reign of Uthman, the third caliph an authorised version in the dialect of Mecca was established.
There is only one text of the Qur'an accepted by all schools of Islamic thought and there are no variants. Since Muslims believe that the Qur'an's Arabic language is revealed, all Muslims, regardless of their national language, memorise and recite the Qur'an in Arabic whether they fully tend it or not.
Muslims believe that it is the direct Word of God and the embodiment of God's Will, it is also considered to be the essential guide for the life of Muslims. The Qur'an contains 114 Surah split up into 6000 ayat. The Surah is arranged according to length, not date of revelation. It is the universal source of all Islamic doctrines and ethics. The second universal source is the Sunnah. The Sunnah is mentioned in the Qur'an, it is interpreted, explained, specified what is meant by some general verse (ayat), limits the meaning of some verses, or may explain something that has been revealed in the Qur'an. Muslims believe that the Qur’an is important to them because they believe that it is the most truthful speech, it’s in an original language, the Qur’an contains Allah’s message to all people, it brings...
...all my textbooks. I imagine the ease of being able to pull out my fully typed lap report or essay and being able to send it to the teacher via e-mail. Thankfully, schools have been transitioning into a more technological era and are taking the steps necessary to implement technology into the classroom. There are many aspects a school has to consider when making this technological leap, but the most important factors by far are the engagement of the students, the ease of the technology in the classroom, and the relationship between the teacher and the student.
While some may argue that technology can decrease the engagement of the students and “may seriously mess up children’s informational metabolism” (Source C), if used in the right environment and context, technology can, in fact, engage students even more. When used in an educational way, a laptop or tablet can be exactly what a student needs to get their undivided attention. Kids already live in a day and age where the internet and its mountains of information are available at the touch of a finger. When they go to school and are forced to use traditional dictionaries and encyclopedias, it’s like being transported back to the Stone Age. Why not build
that Empire High School in Arizona is making “the laptops the key ingredient of the cake”. By adjusting school to the student’s needs, you can make them more engaged. Some critics of this technology...
...Schoolhouse or Home School?
What do George Washington and the Hanson brothers have in common? Do you give up? Well, the answer is that both of them were educated in their homes. Queen Elizabeth, Thomas Edison, and Theodore Roosevelt were also educated at home. According to the Home Education Research Institute, 1.5 million students are staying home for class today. This number is five times more than ten years ago (Kantrow and Wingert 66). This trend leads to many questions. Does home school education work? Do students receive a proper education? How does a home school student's education compare to that of public school student? Does home schooling isolate a child socially? These questions are concerns of parents, educators, and politicians alike. The future of America rests on the academic and social education of our youth, and home school education should be considered as an effective alternative to public school education.
In the past, parents mainly chose to educate their children at home because of religious preference. These parents viewed the public school system as a source of negative influence on children. Violence, sex, drugs, and peer pressure were influences these parents sought to avoid. However, today parents have other reasons for home school education, which primarily all point to a lackluster public school system. Other...

When students buy their lunch in a typical cafeteria, they expect decent, put together meals. Students usually see long lunch lines, hear loud talking, and eat fatty and disgusting food. In the lunch rooms I see unhealthy nasty food that everyone eats every single day. I have seen chili that smells like dog poop, nacho cheese that looks like barbeque sauce that got mixed in. Also the burritos tastes like vomit which was as hard as a rock. School cafeterias need to make more edible food and provide a healthier and more delicious variety of food.
School lunches can be delicious but sometimes they can be gross as road kill, and most students regret buying lunch. I have been buying lunch since my freshman year and I have gotten cheese that had a brown tint to it, uncooked pizza, chunky milk and much more. I spend two dollars and thirty five cents daily on lunch at Oakville that you would be able to find in a dumpster. School cafeterias should have a lot of healthy foods like, fruits, vegetables instead of the entire ala carte section. The lunch workers who make the lunch use frozen or canned foods and most of the food that seems appealing cost extra. Therefore, the food that looks and taste good cost more than the food students waste or do not choose to eat. Given these facts the food should be fully cooked and checked. To conclude, Oakville should put...
... Home School v/s Private School
I wouldn’t recommend home schooling to any parent, I would rather send my child/children to regular school instead, all because to me your child doesn’t learn anything from sitting at home getting taught from the parents. Not saying that the parents are not teaching them anything, but that they need to be around more people. Attending regular school have your child/children around more siblings their age and not just be around the parents all the time.
A parent as I read has to be mastered in order to home school their children/child. Really I don’t have the patience to home school any child, not even mine. A parent has to make sure they have the skills to help their child receive quality education that they deserve, like they get from school. The teachers at school are more experienced than parents. They have a degree in that field and they know how to deal with children better than parents do. By teaching your child at home it will limit their scope of knowledge, and plus they won’t learn everything that the government expects for them to learn. Actually some parents don’t know what the teachers know in school and I can say that I am one of those parents. My wife mother thought about homeschooling at one point when my sister-n-laws were small, but she changed her mind. She said that she wouldn’t be able to...
...Increasing segregation in American schools today.
As I walk through our schools and communit
people living and socializing where they feel it is most affordable and comfortable. Individuals in society live to their own standards, producing their own living conditions. I was interested in writing about how the racial segregation came about in America at first. However, I noticed that the topic is too broad and after reading several articles regarding racial segregation in America, I noticed how interesting that this racial issue have caused an effect to the education system around the states. Schools around the United States are getting more and more heavily segregated by different races which could also cause an imbalance of income groups. For example, in New York City, we can see that the majority of the black people or minorities would prefer to live in areas such as Harlem or Brooklyn which relatively have a lower cost of living compared to Manhattan or downtown.
Educational segregation was once widely viewed as a result of white racism. Roberts v. Boston was the first case to challenge segregation in public schools. In this case, five-year-old Sarah Roberts was barred from her local primary school because she was black, and was forced to travel a great distance to get to school every morning. Her father sued the city of Boston to allow his daughter to...

Strong leadership within a school is necessary however with the increased support of the common core state standards, teachers are expected to take on a role that goes above and beyond the classroom. The school this author teaches in is predominately conventional. Conventional schools are easily recognized because little communication exists between staff and leadership (Hawkins, 2012). The principal is a strong leader with strong ideas and not very...
...B: Back to School
They say that education is the most important thing for society. That education is the way out of trouble, poverty, unemployment and many other things. But all of this is hard to understand for children, and that is a problem, for it is them who are in the education system. So how do you get kids and youngsters to understand the importance of education and hard work? That is what Barrack Obama – the president of the United States of America – has tried to do. He gave the speech "Back to School" to students of all ages in the school system trying to evoke in them a feeling of responsibility when it comes to school and education. This paper analyzes and comments on that speech, and it partly focuses on how he addresses his audience, and what feelings he evokes in them.
When you talk about rhetoric there is a classic way of building it up: The opening comes first. Here Obama says hello and talks about the first day in a semester day, such as that exact day. Then the narrative which is some background information. Here he talks about his own experience as a schoolboy. After that comes the argumentation. In this part all the main weight of the speech is. He talks about responsibility, opportunities and so on. Then normally comes the refutation, but that part it not present in this speech, so at no point does he come with any arguments against his proposition, but on the other hand that would also be...
