Formatted Abstract/Summary
...What truly characterise a school or institution to be Islamic is not its name. It is the philosophy, content, environment and leadership that provide completeness to the system. When they are well in place, we should be able to predict its positive result. Ideally, a good system is the one that is able to dig and impart knowledge form its original sources, namely the Divine revelations, which are combined with modernity. The discipline of specialisations must be varied and enough to cover the worldly needs. Ultimately, pious professionals with global perspectives should be able to lead the world. Knowledge is truly translated to serve the well being of the community. The era of civilisational glory would perhaps resurface.
