Opening of the Bulgarian Islamic Academy demonstrates the great potential of Muslim education in Russia, the development of which is moving quickly forward, said RIA Novosti Professor, Amman, international University of Islamic Sciences (Jordan), a descendant of the prophet Muhammad Shaykh Abdurrazzaq, Card.

The card took part in celebrations on the occasion 1128-th anniversary of adoption of Islam by Volga Bulgars, which took place in the ancient city of Bolgar. In particular, in the framework of festive events on may 20 Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov, Chairman of the Central spiritual administration of Muslims, the Supreme mufti of Russia Talgat Tajuddin and other Muslim spiritual leaders attended the presentation of buildings under construction of the Bulgarian Islamic Academy.

«The level of Islamic education in Russia, in fact, very good. I saw that in many Russian cities opened Islamic universities – this clearly indicates that Muslims in the country have and enjoy full religious freedoms. And I see that every day in Russia Islamic education is moving forward, growing, clear evidence of which is the opening of the Bulgarian Islamic Academy», — shared his impressions Sheikh Abdurrazzaq, Card.

The interlocutor of the Agency noted that «the theologians of the Muslim Tatars in Russia have always been at a very high level,» however, he added, «of course, there are problems.» So, in his view, «educational centers of Muslims in Russia are in need of more professional teachers».

«You want to interest young people who graduate from these religious schools, so after graduation they can find a job. It is necessary to control the educational process for our youth, the students did not fall under the influence of radical, extremist ideas,» said Sheikh.

He acknowledged the problem when young people, after studying in Islamic schools abroad to return home to Russia with ideas that are contrary to established traditions in their country. «The opening of the Bulgarian Islamic Academy can stop this process – young people go abroad, and can continue to learn here at home,» — said the Professor, Amman University.

Speaking about what pushes young people to participate in radical, terrorist organizations, Abdurrazzak, Card noted that «the main reason, of course, is religious ignorance». «Due to the fact that they have no religious education, all that they hear, they take on faith,» he said.

Academy in Bulgaria is to become spiritual and educational center for all Muslims of Russia. Another purpose — to fill the shortage of staff in the muftiates, now many Russian imams are trained abroad, mainly in countries in the Middle East. The institution is set up with joint participation of the largest spiritual administration of Muslims of the country.

The basic elements of the complex should become Bulgarian Council of Ulema, scientific-educational center, Islamic library, Advisory Council, center for the study of the Tatar theological heritage. To teaching in the Academy is planned to attract the world’s leading scientists, theologians.

The idea of the creation of the higher spiritual educational institution supported by the President of the Russian Federation. The ceremony of laying the first stone of the Academy was held on 21 may last year with the participation of the leadership of Tatarstan, the Federal Agency for the Affairs of nationalities, representatives of traditional religions of Russia.
