Islamic Education in Bristol (Pendidikan Islam di Bristol)

One of the challenges the Muslim minority living in the region is how to provide religious education, especially to children. Besides providing a good religious environment is also a responsibility of parents, in the midst of Muslim minorities. Certainly we do not want our children will not know Islam. But not to worry, in addition to Islamic education at home, there are some communities that provide Islamic education for children. In some mosques, Islamic educational activities for children are commonly carried out, for example reading the Koran. This activity is performed after the child came home from school. One example is the Shah Jalal Mosque in Easton and Shahporan Cultural Centre in Filton. Quran teaching activities carried out almost every day.

Salah satu tantangan tinggal di daerah minoritas muslim adalah bagaimana memberikan pendidikan agama terutama kepada anak-anak. Selain itu memberikan lingkungan keagamaan yang baik juga merupakan salah satu tanggung jawab orang tua, di tengah-tengah suasana muslim yang minoritas. Tentu kita tidak ingin anak- anak kita nantinya tidak mengenal Islam. Namun tidak perlu khawatir, selain tentunya pendidikan Islam di rumah, terdapat beberapa komunitas yang memberikan pendidikan Islam bagi anak-anak. Di beberapa mesjid yang disebutkan diatas, kegiatan pendidikan Islam bagi anak jamak dilakukan antara lain kegiatan membaca Al-Quran. Kegiatan ini dilakukan setelah anak pulang dari sekolah. Salah satu contohnya adalah Mesjid Shah Jalal di Easton maupun Shahporan Cultural Centre di Filton. Kegiatan pengajian Quran dilakukan hampir setiap hari.

 

Also, there is also the madrassas were established by the Muslim community including the Bristol Taleem-ul-Islam Trust (BTIT) which organizes Sunday Islamic school. The “Sunday School” was carried out in every Sunday morning until noon. Lessons given include: faith, morality, fiqh (ablution, prayer, fasting, etc.), the history of Islam, and so on. Volunteers run the school, but each student was also asked to contribute around £ 25 for families with their Facebook page at https: / http://www.facebook.com/BTIT.INFO. There is also the Al-Masjid Daru Moameneen (Dalmo) at Bradley Stoke conducting the same activities but performed on every Friday night, called as Friday school.

Selain itu, terdapat juga madrasah-madrasah yang dibentuk oleh komunitas muslim diantaranya adalah Bristol Ta’limul Islam Bristol Taleem-ul-Islam Trust (BTIT) yang menyelenggarakan Sunday Islamic school. “Sekolah Minggu” ini dilakukan di setiap minggu pagi sampai siang hari. Adapaun pelajaran yang diberikan meliputi: akidah, akhlaq, fiqih (wudhu, sholat, puasa, dll), sejarah Islam, dan sebagainya. Sekolah tersebut dijalankan oleh volunteer/relawan, namun setiap siswa juga diminta untuk memberi sumbangan sekitar £25 bagi keluarga yang memiliki anak maksimal 2, dan £35 bagi yang memiliki anak lebih dari 3. Untuk selengkapnya bias dilihat di laman facebook mereka di https://www.facebook.com/BTIT.INFO. Ada juga Masjid Daru Al-Moameneen (DALMO) Bradley Stoke yang menyelenggarakan kegiatan yang sama namun dilakukan pada setiap jumat malam, namanya Friday school.
