Though the central Mushawara of Samastha is a body of not more than 40 eminent scholars of the period, Samastha expanded its service through a number of sub-organisations under its authority.
Samastha Kerala Islamic Educational Board
Samastha Kerala Islamic Educational Board or Samastha Kerala Islam Matha Vidhyabhyasa Board, known as SKIMVB, was Samastha’s first sub-organisation. The run-up to the formation of the board started when Marhoom Sayyed Abdur Rahman Bafaqi Tangal drew the attention of the ulama in 1945, at the 16th conference of Samastha held at Karyavattam, to the urgent need of the organisation to take up a leading and active role in setting up Madrasas across the state. He suggested Samastha leaders to prepare a syllabus for primary religious education to be taught in One to Ten classes of Madrasa along with regular schooling. Later Mushawara meets and Ulama gatherings all seriously discussed Bafaqi Tangal’s suggestion. Finally, the 19th Samastha Conference held in March 1951 at Badagara, passed the historic resolution forming the educational board to meet the urgent need for a centralised Madrasa system. Marhoom Paravanna KPA Muhyiddin Kutty Moulavi was the founding chairman of the board. Six months later on September 17, 1951, at an important meeting at Valakkulam Puthupparamba Juma Masjid in the patronage of Moulana Abul Haqq Abdul Bari Musliyar Al-Baqawi (1981-1965) a 33-member first working committee of the SKIVB was constituted being Paravanna K.P.A. Muhyuddeen Kutty Musliyar the president and K.P. Usman Sahib the general secretary. In March 1952, the board called for application for Madrasa recognition, and the board working committee held on August 26, 1952 recognised first 10 Madrasas.
The number of recognised Madrasas has been on an amazing increase since then. The Executive Council of the board meets second Saturday of every month and reviews the applications of Madrasa for recognition among others. The numbers given below will help understand the progress of the unique Madrasa System set up by Samastha for primary religious education; 1956 (149), 1961 (746), 1966 (1838), 1971 (2694), 1976 (3586), 1986 (5648), 1991 (6440), 1996 (7003), 2001 (7865), 11/09/2006 (8491). All the Madrasas have classes at least until fifth standard. Many Madrasas have classes up to 7th, 10th and even +1 and +2 classes. The board has spread the message of its model Madrasas to states and nations like Andaman Nicobar Islands, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Lakshadeep, Maharashtra, Malaysia, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Oman. It conducts systematic training classes, Hizb, Lower, Higher and Secondary examinations to make the teachers more capable and well equipped. There are Inspectors named as Mufatish to visit each and every Madrasa, they examine the standard of education check up the physical condition and atmosphere of Madrasa, give necessary recommendations to teachers and Madrasa managing committee and report the functioning of each Madrasa to the board. There are 86 inspectors, seven tutors to train the teachers, and six Qura’n reciters to conduct Hizb classes. There is also an association of Madrasa inspectors named Samastha Kerala Jam’eyyat ul-Mufathisheen. The board directly hold centralised Public Examinations in the 5th, 7th, and 10th classes. It has so far issued 2,039,021 fifth class certificates, while the number is 603,524 in 7th and 45,994 in 10th.
The Board had not concentrated its attention only with religious education but had entered in to material field also. It is notable that this step was taken by strictly keeping the balance between the two. Crescent Boarding Madrasa & residential higher secondary school at Velimukku (Malappuram district) Crescent public school at Pudiyangady (Kozhikkode district) M E A Engineering college at Pattikkad are well established institution run by the board.
