Dear teachers and students of Islamic Studies in the UAE,
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu.
Be be reminded that the so-called international version of Islamic Studies Text Books entitled ‘LEARNING ISLAM’ which are being sold in the open market through different book shops are NOT APPROVED by the Ministry.
PLEASE do not commit the blunder of buying new books, that is the international editions.
Those who have purchased the new books are undergoing lots of problems as the Ministry approved syllabus and the lessons in the new international editions DO NOT MATCH! You will only go crazy if you buy. The choice is yours!
Book shops are least bothered, as selling books is business for them. YOU have to adopt discretion and decide which book to buy.
Taking photocopies of the old Text Books and Workbooks, which are prescribed by the Ministry, is the ONLY option available as old books are not available now in the market!!
May Allah make things easy for those who teach Islamic studies as He alone knows their problem and stress level. Aameen.
