Abstract

It is beyond any doubt that education has been the dire need of any society. Education is a life-long process. It continues from
the cradle to the grave. It equips people with knowledge and skills to enable them to live a prosperous and happy life. Education serves as
supra structure of a country. The development of country depends upon the standard and quality of education in the country. Education is
a mean through which a man knows himself and his position and duties in this world. It helps individual in self-realization and is a
process of exploring of individual’s potentiality and tries to enable the individual using his power in positive manner (Khalid, 1998). The
arrival of Syed Ahmad Khan on the India educational scene is perhaps the most outstanding event in the 19th century in the history of
Muslim education. This paper will analyze the views, educational philosophy and contribution of Sir Syed in the field of education and the
out put of Aligarh Movement initiated by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan.
