Principal's Message

Message from the Principal: Brother Eric Ali-- When guiding our children toward proper Islamic character, we must remember that part of being a wise teacher or parent is being kind and gentle with our children. During the time of the Prophet (saw), a Bedouin urinated in the masjid. Immediately the Prophet’s companions rushed toward the man to beat him. But the Prophet (saw) told them to leave him alone. After the man finished urinating, the Prophet (saw) told him, “Verily, filth and urine are not permitted in these masjids. Indeed, it is for the remembrance of Allah.” The Messenger said to his companions, “I was sent to make things easy, and I was not sent to make things difficult.” And he poured a bucket of water over the urine. Even though our children were raised in Islam, eventually they will have to choose to be Muslims. Let’s help make the proper decision easy for them.-- Al-Madinah School: 1635 South Saint Andrews Place, Los Angeles, California 90019-- madina@pacbell.net (1-323) 296-5961

Give Attention to Prevent Misbehavior By: Grandma Jeddah

Anas ibn Maalik reported, “I never saw anyone who was more compassionate towards children than Allah’s Messenger (saw).  His son Ibrahim was in the care of a wet nurse in the hills around Madinah.  He would go there, and we would go with him, and he would enter the house, pick up his son and kiss him, then come back.” (Muslim)

One of the best things you can do for your child to prevent acting out behavior is give him attention. Children thrive on attention.  They need to know they are acknowledged--they exist.  They need to know they matter.  Let your child know you care about him.
