Assalamualaikum w.b.t. to all,
My previous post is a quote that has the word Tarbiyyah in its structure. Just in case there are some people who are not familiar with this term, here's a pretty clear and brief description of tarbiyyah:
The word "Tarbiyyah" is an Arabic word that linguistically means increase, growth, and loftiness. Conventionally, Tarbiyyah means the development and the training of people in various aspects.
In this context, the word Tarbiyah refers to the systematic development and training of Muslims. It is a continuous and comprehensive process of developing all aspects of the Muslim character/personality, i.e. spiritual, intellectual, moral, social, and physical aspects. The Tarbiyyah process aims to put Muslims on the path of constant self-purification, self-correction and self-development(Tasfiyah), and instill in them the passion for truth, righteousness, and justice.
It is an approach which traces its origins to the Qur'an and to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (saw), as he invested efforts in the education/training of his companions. As a result of his exertions, he not only left a great message, the message of Islam, but a great generation that carried and spread the message all over the globe - bringing humanity from darkness into His Light.
It is this quality of people that the Prophet (saw) nurtured that constitute the secret behind the miracle of Islam.
The focus of Tarbiyyah is to groom participants who are distinguished, strive for excellence, have a sense of mission, are self-motivated, conduct a balanced life, live in peace with themselves and their environment, be equipped with the necessary knowledge, understanding, and skills to make a difference in the society by taking an active role - both individually and collectively - in the reform process that seeks to make the betterment of our community, our country, and the entire world.
