Statistics from studies and analysis showed that the Muslim countries are the least democratic, having lowest income, as well as slowest growth income per head. Such are the results from inefficient system and management of education as well as not being able to practice lifelong learning to the upmost.Education has been the answer at the early time of Islam during the prophet’s life. Based on the claim, this paper aimed at proposing an alternative educational model in order to implement the need for mass-educating the Muslim community in general. The model, which is based on the Nested Learning Community Concept, takes into account current ICT infrastructure and pervasive computing applications.It consists of five integrated layers, supported by three information system pillars namely content, communication, and self directed assessment performance.The model adopted a non formal education system which does not require students to sit in class and follow instructions to pass exams.It provides a platform for life improvement and wellbeing of oneself.Should the model be implemented in a structured way, it can fulfill all the requirements for an effective educational system in the current lifestyle of the digital age and bring us back to the glory of Ottoman Empire.
