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

Does Your Teen Need Some Guidance?

Does Your Teen Need Some Guidance?

You heard it from friends and family when the kids were toddlers:  

"You think the terrible twos are bad . . .  just wait until they are teens!"

Well now your kids are teens and boy were they right! You never imagined it would be this difficult. Of course no isolated book has all the solutions to help your teen with his or her life problems other than Quran.  Grandma Jeddah's newest e-book, Mom, I'm stressed: Stress Help for Muslim Teens and Youth, guides your child back to the principles of Islam to solve their everyday stresses . . . and hopefully, make life a little bit easier for Mom, too!

With an Islamic perspective, Grandma Jeddah guides your child with practical steps for managing some of the most common problems youth are struggling with today, from drug use to feeling sad and depressed.

It's well known that the present generation has no time for long drawn out explanations, so the book is quick and easy reading.  Look for it next week, insha'Allah.
