Abstract

Abstract: Education is the lifeblood that provides knowledge to the community in various fields. The systematic beginning of education has now started from pre-school, primary school, secondary school and to higher level in college or university. All parties regardless of ethnic background, language and religion need the education to be able to live life more harmoniously, respect each other, build success and live based on humanity. At the same time in countries with diverse ethnic, religious and racial communities, the demand for education to understand religious beliefs is often heard. For more countries it is not a big issue to allow the community to provide religious education but not all countries are open and allow educational institutions other than those provided by the government. This is where various problems arise for communities to learn religious teachings, especially for Muslim minorities. Muslim minority communities face various challenges to obtain formal religious education facilities in government-owned schools. Therefore, there are several challenges that have to be overcome to ensure that the Muslim community is able to practice religious teachings while studying in schools owned by the government. This study examines the challenges faced by Muslim minority communities, especially Malays in Perth, Australia.

Abstrak : Pendidikan adalah nadi kepada kehidupan yang memberikan pelbagai ilmu kepada masyarakat dalam pelbagai bidang. Permulaan pendidikan secara sistematik kini telah bermula dari pra sekolah, sekolah rendah, sekolah menengah dan ke peringkat tinggi di kolej atau universiti. Semua pihak tanpa mengira latar belakang etnik, bahasa dan agama memerlukan pendidikan agar dapat menjalani kehidupan dengan lebih harmoni, saling menghormati,membina kejayaan serta hidup berdasarkan sifat kemanusiaan. Pada masa yang sama dalam negara yang mempunyai pelbagai masyarakat terdiri etnik, agama dan kaum tuntutan untuk mendapatkan pendidikan memahami anutan agama sering kedengaran. Bagi negara yang lebih terbuka ianya bukanlah satu isu besar untuk membenarkan masyarakat menyediakan pendidikan agama namun tidak semua negara yang terbuka dan membenarkan institusi pendidikan selain yang disediakan oleh kerajaan. Dari sinilah timbul pelbagai masalah untuk masyarakat mempelajari ajaran agama khususnya bagi golongan minoriti Muslim. Masyarakat minoriti Muslim menghadapi pelbagai cabaran untuk mendapatkan kemudahan pendidikan agama secara formal di sekolah milik kerajaan. Justeru itu terdapat beberapa cabaran yang terpaksa dilalui bagi memastikan masyarakat Muslim dalam melaksanakan ajaran agama semasa belajar di sekolah milik kerajaan. Kajian ini meneliti cabaran yang dihadapi oleh masyarakat minoriti Muslim khususnya Melayu di Perth, Australia.
