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

American Horror Story 3-year-old Tortured, Beaten, and Murdered (Huffington Post, Maryclarie Dale)

American Horror Story: 3-year-old Tortured, Beaten, and Murdered (Huffington Post, Maryclarie Dale)

This is horrible. But the sad thing is that when parents discipline children physically, death can easily occur when parents lose control and hit out of frustration and anger. How many parents can truly say that they correct their child with hitting when they are not angry or frustrated.

There is a better way of disciplining our children. And it conforms to the way in which the Prophet (saw) dealt with children. It doesn't involve hitting, shouting or harshness. It involved, patience,  gentleness, and respect. (Grandma Jeddah)
