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

5 Tips on How to Get Your Youngster up for Suhoor--without Shouting By Grandma Jeddah

. . . continued from 8/3/2011

The fifth thing is to make an incentive chart using stars as rewards for getting up for suhoor. Place a star on the chart whenever he gets out of his bed for the suhoor meal. After he’s earned a certain number of stars, give him a treat or take him somewhere special. This might encourage him to even look forward to getting up for suhoor, when he lies down to sleep at night.”

To be continued, insha'Allah. . .
