INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

    Western education is a system originated from the west and penetrated to the world after Islamic education in the earliest 15th century. Its main approach was the modernization of social life through science and technological advancement (Farid, 2005). Western system of education was first propagated by the missionaries and promoted by colonialist to different part of the globe, in their view for westernization and globalization in the name of modernity. It is a complete secular system that differentiated life and religion and focuses on materialism. It’s also rationalistic in its quest for knowledge as relied more on human ability of reason than spiritual inspiration. The preparation made to man in this system was very limited as it fall short in training only the body and the physique in this fair of life, therefore the modern western system does not consider the relationship between God and human as socially or intellectually relevance, hence revelation or the revealed knowledge, they are ignored even when modern secular subjects are introduced in the curriculum for the traditional older system (Rosnani, 2004).

    However, Islamic education is simply translated as ‘tarbiyyah al Islamiyyah’. It contained a concept of “ta alim” (instruction), tahadhib (rear or sustain) and other sub concepts like hikmah (wisdom), Adl (justice) Amanah (trust) and as the extreme is Khilafah (vicegerancy) and Ibadat (worship). The main sources in this type of education are the Quran and Hadith. Islamic education connotes whole life approach and signifies complete integration into man’s life, it emanation can be trace to the existence of man on earth of the holy Quran. It is the true system that first takes man from the darkness of ignorance and illiteracy to the light of knowledge and education, it shapes so many relevance and advantages not only to Muslims but to entire humanity. Islam faces education as an act of worship and a life long process (Hashim, 2004). Therefore, its philosophy, method, content and general curriculum are towards human successful integrative life. Education is an art that allows humans to accumulate every leaving experience in their life and subsequently transmit to a new generation. In Islam, the actual education which are required are the content of Quran and Hadith, because these are the motivations which derives the Muslim community so as to place due importance on advancement of knowledge which is borne out from the Quran and Hadith. Islamic education can also be defined as a process of nurturing and training of the mind, the physique and the spirit of human based on Islamic values which are sourced from the Quran and Sunnah. It is intended to bring forth humans who are God conscious and subservient only to Allah (Nor, 2012).

    However, the Islamic education left many legacies to the west as it recorded a tremendous achievement in architecture, history, philosophy, medicine and all branches of liberal and natural sciences. The scientific and technological advancement of the modern world owe a lot to the research conducted by the Muslimscientist, Islamic education also predate the western education in Nigeria and Malaysia just as Islam has a longer history than Christianity in the world. In Nigeria, western education has greatly influenced the teaching of Islamic education considering the fact that most Islamic schools now adopt some western approach of education.

1.2    STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The secular system considers education as an engine for development; it sees education as the instrument of life, and believed for education as a means of individual and national development. It also viewed education as an element of continuous and harmonious human existence and wellbeing just as the case in Islamic world view. However, we may wish to consider Islamic education as a system of education, which entails ideological concept expounding the very nature of life (here and after), and prescribing the position of man and his role on earth. It is important to note that Islamic education is not synonymous with Islamic studies, which is just a subject in the Nigerian western-oriented educational system. The basic discernible difference is that Islamic studies is an academic subject offered in a formal school setting.Western education started winning popularity as a result of the patronage. Nasiru (1977) advances some otherreasons for the prosperity of the Western education in Nigeria, namely, the payment of a monthlysalary to the teachers from the parent body of the mission abroad, as against the economicallystrapped Mallamswho depended on voluntary gifts from the public as a means for theirsurvival. Also the free education programme of the Christian missionaries towards western education development was elaborate thanthat of the Muslims, as they received financial and moral aid from Europe and could afford togive out books, slates, and writing materials freely to the students. In addition to this,appointments into government offices were made from the rank and file of schoolleavers and not the students of Islamic schools. On graduation, they could only perform at Islamic social gatheringslike naming, marriage and burial programmes. However, the researcher seeks to analyze the impact of western education in the teaching of Islamic education.
