SRA Curriculum Being Improved To Produce Students Who Can Memorise, Understand The Quran – Jawi
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 23 – The Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) is improving the curriculum of religious primary schools (SRA) under its administration, especially hafazan, to ensure students are able to memorise and understand the Quran.
Its director, Datuk Che Mat Che Ali, said the current curriculum only required the students to memorise without understanding.
“We want students to have a strong spirit and not be easily influenced by outside elements.
“Through a curriculum that will teach students to memorise and understands the Quran, we will produce a generation that is not only Quran literate, but also able to memorise, understand and practise the teachings, as well as possess noble values,” he said after opening a Khatam Quran (group recitation and completion of the Quran) function at the National Mosque here today.
Che Mat,who represented Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom at the function, said Jawi also planned to build a religious secondary school at Bandar Seri Permasisuri.
The complex, able to accommodate 1,200 students, would be built in 2013, he added.
