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

  1. ello Grandmajeddah, Question for you..My daughter has a two year old son. She is going through a divorce & recently started dating a young man of Iranian background. He took to her son very well & seems to really enjoy the child. What I've noticed is something he does to the child, which I've not really seen all that often by others. He is always putting his hand over or on the child's head. I'm not sure what this it a loving, guiding gesture, a controlling gesture or just his way of interacting with the boy? Just seems odd to me for some reason. Could be a cultural thing I guess. Thank you for any input you can offer. Sincerely, Brenda Harvey
