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

Introduction to Mom, I’m Stressed! Stress Help for Muslim Teens and Youth (By: Grandma Jeddah)

Introduction to 
Mom, I’m Stressed! 
Stress Help for Muslim Teens and Youth
By: Grandma Jeddah

I am a teacher at an Islamic school in Los Angeles. I’m also the mother of 11 children. I’m quite aware that youth have their own set of problems, difficulties and stresses that plague them. On the news here in America, hardly a month goes by without reports of youth committing violent atrocities  . . . because they were unable to deal with the stresses in their lives.

Interestingly, however, these incidents of mass murders in schools and suicides aren’t found in nations that are considered third world, underdeveloped, or poor. Why? This is an important question to consider. Why is it that those in the most advanced societies in the world, are producing youth who are unable to cope with life?

When God is left out of people’s lives, you will find people at a loss for purpose in life. You will find people who care about little more than their own self gratification and material wealth. They have little concern for truly admirable qualities of character . . . honesty, modesty, patience, and charity.

This book is a brief and simple reminder to help you, my dear youth, put things in their proper perspective to help you get through your challenging moments in life.

May Allah the Most High forgive us all our sins, bless us all with the good of this world and the hereafter and protect us from the hellfire.
