About Majlis Education Trust
The Majlis, has made great inroads into the territory of religious revival in the state and has made hefty contributions to its educational and cultural domains. In founding the Majlis, the trust had envisioned an educational system which frames Islam as a complete system of life. As early as 1950, the trust was making a conscious effort to set up an edifice of education that it had been holding dear for long.
In the meantime a number madrasas, secondary schools and colleges have been set up by social workers across the state. It was in this context that in 1979 Majlis Education Trust was launched primarily for supervising these institutions and secondly for embarking upon a programme of renovation and standardization of the curricula offered by them.
Right now, the Majlis undertakes a number of activities such as preparing the syllabus and year plan, publishing of text books, holding of inspections, orientation programmes and examinations, conduct of distant education programme, cultural fests and teacher welfare programmes.
Those who rendered able leadership in the field of Islamic education in Kerala since the inception of the Islamic Movement were: KC Abdullah Moulavi, P Mohammed Abdul Jalal Moulavi, T Ishaqali Moulavi, and T.K Abdullah.They formulated a curriculum and syllabus combining traditional religious disciplines and selected topics of modern education.
