The purpose of
this paper is (i) to state the objectives of higher education commensurate with
Islamic requirements; (ii) to examine the current state of higher education
performance in Muslim majority countries with a view to indentifying the main
issues it faces using Islamic economics as illustration and (iii) to present in
outline a program for improvement.
The constraints of
time and resources do not permit us to present an all covering discussion on
the subject. Instead of dealing with specifics, we shall focus on directional
and attitudinal issues of substance. We are aware of the limitations of the
exercise but find it rewarding.
