building a nation based on islamic syariah, we would definitely need as many experts in the field as we can. indeed we are in shortage at a critical level, but somehow, not many are sending their children to learn syariah.
i guess it is not too extreme to say that the least we could do is actually have a double degree, one in syariah and the other in any other field. come to think of ibnu sina, ibnu rushd, and many other muslim scholars in the past, where they were all experts in both religion (quran, hadith, etc) and science, this was actually not a choice.. You HAVE TO know your religion as it is the way of life, and all other knowledge needs to be learned as they are complimentary.
for the time being, what may be the answer to this woe? An integrated school? maybe. provided we have the right teachers.
i need to build a school.
