Islamic Educational Thought: A Comparative Study of al-Zarnuji's and al-Shawkani's Learning Models

Methods of learning constitute a basic component of the educational thought paradigm which includes other elements such as the aim of education, curricula and administration.

Burhan al Islam al-Zarnuji: (d. 591 A.H.: 1195 A.D.) is one of the forerunners of Islamic educational thought who early laid the rules of learning within the context of human educational thought.

Prof. Dr. Sayyid Ahmad Othman, a contemporary Muslim psychologist, has been able to revive al-Zarnuji's legacy in our modem language and within the framework of the highly developed expertise of contemporary laboratories of psychological schools. Dr. Othman's book "Learning According to Burhan al-Islam al-Zamuji" embodies a mature study and a profound analysis of al-Zarnuji's book"Talim alĀ­Muta'allim Tariq al-Ta'allum", (Teaching the learner how to learn), a book of learning and teaching which reflects the Islamic cultural methodology of that time.
