JEDDAH: A delegation from the Union of Teachers of Arabic Language in Indonesia visited the Islamic University in Madinah on Friday to learn about the university’s experience and knowledge of education for Muslim children from all over the world.

The delegation met Dr. Mahmoud Qadah, the university’s vice president for International Cooperation and Knowledge Exchange, who said many Indonesian students graduated from the Islamic University, and some are now teaching in different capacities all across the world.

More than 200 Indonesian students enrolled this year to study at the varsity, which is an unprecedented number from one country throughout the history of the Madinah-based teaching institution.

Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim-majority state and the fourth most populous country in the world. Indonesia is the largest economy in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Saudi Arabia has been Indonesia’s largest global supplier of crude oil and its biggest trading partner in the Arab world, Middle East and North Africa.
