Stories of the pious
Sorry for any inconvenience caused

> I mean by curriculum, subjects and books studied.
The basic curriculum of the modern Qarawayeen not
the mosque is:
The students basically go through the following years:
7 years primary education equivalent
3 years middle preparation
3 years secondary school
4 years graduate study (university level study)
In order to begin study at Qarawayeen, the student
must know basic Arabic and have memorized 30 hizb
(half) of the Qur'an and intend to memorize the entire
Qur'an. Additionally, he must have memorized Ibn Malik's
Alfiyyah Arabic grammar text.
These three form the basic core of the religious study.
Many books are used by the teachers among which are:
al-Qawanin al-Fiqhiyyah (Ibn Juzayy al-Kalbi)
al-Khulasah al-Fiqhiyyah (Muhammad al-`arabi al-Qarawi)
al-Khurashi and other shuruh of Mukhtasar Khalil
al-Kafi's explanation of Tuhfah al Hukkam
al-Risalah and its shuruh
Muqaddimat ibn Rushd
Basic hadith terminology texts such as the Bayquniyyah
And the famous hadith books with commentary
Tafsir Ibn Kathir
Tafsir al-Kasshaaf li al-Zamakhshari (for its literary value)
Tafsir Jami` li Ahkam al-Qur'an li l-Qurtubi
Many other tafsir such as the one written by Ibn Juzayy al-Kalbi
Another book that is very central to study at Qarawayeen is
majmu` muhimmat al-mutun (containing 66 texts).
Many teachers however (astonishingly) rely purely on their
memory only giving verbal references to written material.
For example, when Sheikh `Ali Filali was teaching me
(one-to-one (Abuqanit was his only student for a period of time
studying)), he would teach complex subjects
of fiqh and tafsir straight off the top of his head from
his memory. That is very common among the teachers there
that they do not emphasize reading of books as much as
taking `ilm from the mouths of the scholars and memorizing
The other subjects studied are:
a) Adab (literature) [e.g., Ta Ha Yasin, etc.]
b) Balaghah (al-Jawhar al-Maknun)
c) `Urud (mizan al-dhahab fi sh`iri l-`arab and diwan al-Shafi`i)
d) al-Nahwu (Aajrumiyyah and Alfiyyah ibn Malik)
e) al-Falsafah (Ibn Rusdh, Ibn Sina, Sullam al-Munawraq, etc.)
f) al-Ta'rikh (Ibn Kathir's bidayah wa nihayah, Maghribi history
such as Nashr al-Mathani by Muhammad ibn Tayyib al-Qadiri.
g) Geography (contemporary)
h) al-tarbiyyah al-islamiyyah
i) at least one foreign language (e.g., French)
j) sports activities
k) Science (e.g., physics, chemistry,
