Islamic education in appears to be fading away in the Nigeria education system, despite the increase in formation of Muslim organisations across the nation. It is in the light of this, this study investigated the role of Muslim organisations in the development of Islamic education as expressed by secondary school Islamic studies teachers in Ilorin West Local Government Area, Kwara State. The study examined their role in the area of finance, teacher’s capacity building, organization of Islamic programmes, provision of educational facilities and participation in the school curriculum development.
The descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. Convenient and stratified sampling techniques were employed to select 120 teachers across secondary schools in Ilorin West LGA. The instrument used for data collection was a self-designed questionnaire on “Role of Muslim Organisation in Development of Islamic Education”. The instrument has a test re-test reliability coefficient of 0.62. Respondents’ demographic data were presented with percentage, while Chi-square (χ²) statistics was used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05 alpha level.
The findings of the study revealed that the Muslim organisations are playing a great role in the development of Islamic education in Ilorin West Local Government Area, Kwara State in terms of finance, provision of educational facilities and organization of Islamic programmes.
