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

Muslim education. This paper will analyze the views, educational philosophy and contribution of Sir Syed in the field of education and the
