The present book is confined to a brief study of the educational theory and practice in Islam.The Islamic concept of individual responsibility gives to man the freedom of choice and action. It makes man responsible for his own deeds and answerable before Allah. This tenet of faith produces strong will power and enables a man able to keep under check his natural biological and psychological demands. Even though man is responsible he is not totally free to do as he likes.He is in the grip of Allah. Allah possesses infinite power and absolute control over the entire universe in which man is simply powerless. Man can achieve a lofty position and can discharge the duties as Allah’s vice-regent only if he cultivates the Divine virtues in himself. Some of the most important divine virtues and qualities are life, mercy, justice, creativity and knowledge. But cultivating these virtues does not mean sharing Godhood. Godhood is absolutely reserved for Allah only and no one else can share it.
