Zainol Khan, born in 1929, has been a keen observer as the Muslim community has developed over the decades. As a youth he did not have the option of attending a Muslim primary or secondary school since such recognition did not come before 1949. However, his parents and the elders of the Muslim community ensured that he and many other youths were kept within the Islamic ummah (community) through maktabs and madrassahs held in the galleries of mosques or under Muslim houses where the Imams gathered the faithful and imparted learning.
