Tarbeyah at the Personal
of study. ICNA and MAS TARBEYAH Departments came up with a 3
level TARBEYAH Syllabus about 3 years ago. We have mailed this syllabus
to the MGA's. It is available in printed form and CD's. We have not been
able to implement it effectively in the past.
Therefore for the rest of 2003 we are implementing the study
of TARBEYAH GUIDEBOOK I.
This guidebook is available on our ICNA web site in Tarbeyah Deptt.
Please download it and make copies for your MGA’s. Its study should be
completed by Nov. 2003. We will send you a questionnaire by the end of
Nov to be answered and scored. . Personal reports must include the
progress of study of these courses.
Plan of TAZKEYAH and TARBEYAH. Department
is asking for daily planning by
the individual workers ( including
personal study, studying with the family members, personal Ibadat, Zikr, dealing
with others, fulfilling the responsibilities, Sadaqa etc.). We
should develop habit of planning at the individual level, implement it,
and evaluate our progress. This will help us to gauge our progress in
the path of Al Islam and help us to do self Muhasaba. Please include a
report on personal planning in your monthly report form. Insha Allah in
2004, we will come up with a personal diary to record the plan and
Tarbeyah at the Local
We have following
types of local meetings and we suggest their purpose and function.
* NEIGHBOR NET (NN)
MEETINGS. NN is basically a basic Taleem, Dawah and
Akhuwwah unit to achieve these goals collectively. Program should
consist of a- collective study of Quran b- study of one
Hadith or one Seerah or uswah story c- Dawah activity. Frequency of
these meetings could be weekly or less often. A quarterly meeting of NN
in the city or the zone could be arranged for a major Dawah effort.
Programs and efforts are to be made to develop personal brotherly
relations among the workers. We should also focus on skill development.
Organizational dynamics are to be understood and organizational skills
are to be developed.
