Kafa Ihsan to be introduced in secondary schools soon, says Religious Affairs Minister

KOTA KINABALU: A Fardu Ain Basic Class (Kafa) Ihsan module will be introduced to all secondary school students in the near future, says Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Religious Affairs) Senator Idris Ahmad.

He said the Kafa Ihsan module was still in the final evaluation process by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim).

"Kafa Ihsan is an elective subject which is not compulsory for students but they are encouraged to take it," he said after attending the Sabah-level Multaqa Murabbi Ummah ceremony here on Thursday (Jan 27).

Also present were Sabah Minister of Special Tasks Datuk Mohd Arifin Mohd Arif and Sabah Mufti Datuk Bungsu Aziz.

Idris added that the Kafa Ihsan module was different from the Islamic Education subject because it focused more on the added value of students' personal development and leadership apart from matters of worship.

In his speech, Idris said that in total, the Federal Government had channelled RM58,546,046 to imams, bilal, siak, takmir and Kafa teachers in Sabah this year.

He also said that starting this month, female Kafa teachers were eligible for 60-day maternity leave with full allowance. - Bernama
