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-- (1-323) 296-5961

Timeless Tools for Teenage Discipline by: Grandma Jeddah

 Our religion doesn’t’ condone drugs, alcohol and illicit sex but that doesn’t mean our kids won’t be tempted to experiment with these immoralities.  Our reminders and close relationship can help prevent this type of experimentation and ultimate harm, Insha’Allah.   The relationship we develop with our kids is so important.  Children have a natural tendency to want to please their parents.  Being kind to them makes this inclination easier.  And when ayats from Quran and sayings from hadith are used to let them know how Allah views certain types of behaviors, this reminds them that the ultimate reason for obeying you is to please Allah.
