Investing in the Children of the Islamic World, 2005

This Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (ISESCO) and UNICEF report questions if we are fulfilling our commitment to children.

The Advance Summary previews the Full Report, which assesses the situation of children in 57 Muslim countries, focussing on progress in the areas of health, education, child protection and HIV and AIDS. It also identifies necessary action for children. The report served as a background document for the First Ministerial Conference on the Child, held in Rabat from 7-9 November 2005.

Children in Islam – Their Care, Protection and Development, 2005

“Islam views childhood with hope and aspiration, seeing it as something to look forward to, seek and long for. When it is achieved, the fruit reaped is happiness of the soul, delight of the heart and elation of the chest.”

The Children in Islam Manual produced by Egypt's Al-Azhar University and UNICEF underscores how the care, protection and development of children is central to Islam. The Manual includes research papers and extracts of Koranic verses, Hadiths and Sunnas that provide guidance on childrens’ rights to such things as health, education and protection.
