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

The Best Women are Kind and Merciful to their Children by: Grandma Jeddah

According to Abu Huraira, The Prophet (saw) said, “The best women among (the Arabs) are the women of Quraish.  They are merciful and kind to their children and the best guardians of their husband’s properties. (Bukhari)
In our daily interactions with our children, remember this hadith.  It's useful to remember when disciplining our children, as well.  The old saying "you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." is a wise one.
