Islamic discipline is the backbone of the institution which is in accordance with the Islamic code. Knowledge enlightens students and regulates their practices. But it is through Talbiyah that he becomes an exemplary person for his people. Thus knowledge and Talbiyah are complimentary and supportive to each other. The first thing Rasoolullah[ S.A.W] did after receiving the Qur’an was to translate the Words of Allah into action. Aisha [R.A] says, ‘Rasoolullah’s [ S.A.W] morals were the Qur’an.’ In order to provide our children with good Islamic education and to give them a strong and firm basis for their Islamic development, some Rules and Guidelines have been formulated. This will greatly assist us to improve the discipline and level of education in the Maktab. It must be noted that no written set of rules can cover all situations and thus the final decision in respect of disciplinary issues rests with the Principal in determining what actions constitute misconduct, what procedures to follow and what sanctions to impose.
RULES OF THE MAKTAB
ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY
Attendance and punctuality is of utmost importance. Absenteeism and late coming seriously retard the student’s progress as lessons cannot be repeated for one child due to limited time.
