All praise be to Allah alone, and peace be upon the last Prophet.
There is no doubt that the educational process is accumulative and needs a lot of time and effort, in addition to sincerity and truthfulness in order to be fruitful by the will of Allah (may He be Exalted).
In this article, I am trying to highlight the most important educational factors that promote an educator and raise his level.
Here are these factors:
1- The excellence of an educator in more than one field of knowledge.
2- Strong connection with Allah (which is the most important factor).
3- Educational vigilance, which means that an educator should have a sense by which he knows the conditions of his students and enables him to estimate the situations of the students and deal with them.
4- Shari`ah knowledge.
5- Understanding the nature of life and sharing some life aspects in order to convey values and principles to students.
6- Contentment with the idea.
7- Bearing the concern of upbringing.
8- Openness and flexibility.
9- Giving and spending.
10-Taking into account the the psychological, financial, and social needs of a student.
11- Benefiting from events and situations (and the biography of the Prophet and the history of the Companions are full of educational events).
12- The rule of exchange (whenever you draw nearer to the student, he draws nearer you and tells you some secrets).
13- The wide culture of an educator.
14- Goodness of Giving (It is not enough to give but to choose the appropriate and best way of giving).
15- Finding of incentives.
16- Innovation and variation.
17- The consciousness of an educator (The Fiqh of reality, the Fiqh of balance, and the Fiqh of priorities).
18- The capacity of discovering and developing energies.
19- Planning and regulating.
20- Rule: (The opinion of an educator on the student has a great effect,) so if you describe something, he gets affected by that description negatively or positively.
22- Mastering the follow-up skills.
23- Reinforcement and praise.
24- Finding means to help in education.
25- Trying to remove or reduce the factors which affect the student negatively.
26- Continuous assessment.
27- Comprehensiveness and balance in programs.
28- Paying attention to practical means in upbringing, such as: `Umrah (the lesser pilgrimage), Qiyam-ul-Layl (standing for optional Salah at night), visiting of Bookstores.
29- Sharing social occasions [whether they are joyful or sad] with the student.
30- Making the student feel the transition (An educator should make the student feel that he or she moved from a stage to a higher and better stage).
