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

Help for Your Parenting Workshop

If you are looking for Islamic based, effective parenting education resources for your parenting workshops, Grandma Jeddah provides parenting e-books to help Muslim parents discipline their children more effectively and more easily. She teaches parents how they can raise responsible Allah fearing children without hitting, shouting or shaming. 

Why Promote Parenting Training

​We want our children to grow up to be the leaders of tomorrow.  But more importantly, we want to give them what it takes to hold on to their religion and die pleasing Allah. Giving our children understanding, attention, and patience are critical aspects of disciplining our children to achieve this goal.  There are numerous examples from Quran and hadith that illustrate how we can raise our children without hitting, shouting or shaming. You will find some of those examples in Grandma Jeddah’s e-booksand parenting resources—e-books, blog, website, YouTube videos, Face book, parenting articles, email newsletter, parenting links, and more.

You Remain in Charge

You remain independent and self directed with your self-designed and organized workshops, seminars or podcasts . . . Grandma Jeddah provides the resources you need to teach parents respectful and effective parenting techniques. You know best who your parents are, how they should be taught, and what instruction methods are most effective for them.  We provide you with what you don’t have – Islamic based parent disciplining resources.

What Topics Does Grandma Jeddah Cover in her e-Books?
Grandma Jeddah’s Parenting e-Books and resources cover a range of challenging as well as day-to-day discipline and parenting issues.  Her experience-based methods cover topics including managing children with special needs, controlling parental temper when disciplining, dealing with tantrums, dealing with children who have anger management issues, coping with excessively defiant children, learning effective discipline techniques and more.

Why Do Muslim Parents Need Parenting Resources Specifically for Them?

No one understands the particulars of raising Muslim children as do Muslims.  We have our own culture prescribed by the Quran and Prophet Muhammad (saw).  Parenting books written by non-Muslims have a wealth of information.  However, sometimes, the information itself or the way in which it is wrapped may not be suitable Islamically. 

​Certainly, not all secular parenting books and resources are adverse for reading.  In fact, Grandma Jeddah provides a useful list of such resources in her e-book, Discipline without Disrespecting and on her website, blog and Face book page.  Parents just need to be alert and cautious when reading.

What Topics are Covered in Grandma Jeddah’s e-Books?

Discipline without Disrespecting begins with a section explaining why children misbehave in the first place. Grandma Jeddah then discusses the characteristics of several types of special needs some children may have and the behavioral problems that can arise from these disabilities.  She cautions parents about harms of mistaking disability symptoms for misbehavior. She also presents in detail 25 discipline techniques parents can use to discipline their children without hitting, shouting, or shaming. She provides a short section on guiding Muslim teens. And she includes a segment on how parents can take care of themselves to become optimum parents.

What is an Example of a Technique Taught in Discipline without Disrespecting?

One of the simplest is the Star Chart system.  With this technique, parents develop an incentive chart to place stars on for goal behaviors their child performs, such as making salat on time.  Grandma Jeddah says one of the greatest mistakes parents make in training their children is failing to positively acknowledge the actual behavior they wish their child to perform.  The Start Chart system is a way of reminding the parent and child when the child is behaving appropriately, which encourages the child to continue this behavior and relinquish the inappropriate behavior.

​Can Discipline without Disrespecting Address Behavioral Problems with Children who have Severe Obstinate behavior?
Yes, certainly! In fact, professionals working with children who exhibit extremely uncooperative, defiant, and hostile behavior, strongly recommend the very methods mentioned in Discipline without Disrespecting.

She gained her knowledge through researching parenting resources both secular and Islamic and applying her own personal experience with children on a daily basis including her students for over three decades, as well as her own 11 children and grandchildren.  All of this experience has come together beautifully in the fashioning of her parenting resources.

Why do Muslim Parents Need Knowledge from an Islamic Perspective regarding Parenting?
A lot of our parenting methods (for converts as well as those born Muslim) come from what was passed done culturally from their families.  Some of these methods may be appropriate islamically but others may not. Reading parenting books with concepts based upon Islam gives parents effective ways of parenting that are in accordance with our religion.
