Provide a 10 pages analysis while answering the following question: Mass Education and Its Relation to the Religious Observance. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Everything has taken a turn in a certain direction. The economy has changed. the social lives of people have changed, and the cultural life of people and the political atmosphere is different from the past. Whether all this change has happened all for the positive reasons is yet unknown, but one thing is clear in all this. individuals have become more aware of their surroundings. They have come to see that the world around them is changing. They have acquired the knowledge and are literate enough to distinguish between things. This is one of the major developments that have occurred. Individuals have become more literate. They have come to learn more, and this brings them closer to understanding the changes that have occurred. Literacy has been something that has been taken seriously and it is considered a necessary aspect in the development of an individual. People now value the aspect of education more than they did a time ago (Kaplan, 10, 2006). They have become literate, and all this is because of development and change. Literacy has brought a change in politics, economy, culture and tradition and the social lives of people. In this essay, attention will be focused on mass education and the effect it has had on the Islam community. The Muslims have been educated, but instead of conforming to change like other people, they have chosen to remain true to their culture. They have chosen to not let literacy make them abandon their culture.
Contrary to the predictions of modernization theorists, modern education has not brought a decline in religious thought and practice in the Muslim world. Much to the contrary, mass schooling and literacy have heightened the public interest in Islam and widened access to Islamic texts. This increasing demand for Islamic knowledge has created a highly charged educational field, where different interest groups and institutions vie for the hearts and minds of Muslims. .
