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

Listen to Bliss-en Discipline By: Grandma Jeddah

         Children have a desire to know that important people in their lives care about their concerns.  This is just the natural makeup of humans.  But not only do they want to be empathized with, they also need to simply just be heard.
        This is one of the primary roles that psychologists and counselors play with their clients.  They are there to listen to the person’s problems.  Just being able to talk about a problem and get it off one’s chest can be enough to make someone feel better sometimes.
        Be there for your child emotionally when she has a problem that’s troubling her. You’ll find your concern will go a long way in helping her see that she needn’t act out to get others around her to know how terrible she feels.
