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

An Amazing Parenting Site

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatu,

Recently I was introduced to an amazing parenting site authored by Brother Haroon Malik.  It is actually a parenting class. The  class reminds us of how seriously important our roll of parenting is. The brother provides abundant references from Quran and hadith to guide us toward becoming better Muslim parents and to hopefully raise Allah fearing children.

Here is a brief description of the course:

As a current or future Muslim Parent, it is an honor and a blessing from Allah to give us a child.
Prophet Muhammad wants his nation to have the highest number compared to other nations on the day of judgment.
It is our responsibility to learn what we are signing up for!
This course gets into the role of parenting and its importance in Islam. Ustadh Haroon truly brings you a comprehensive, results-producing parenting resource for today's Muslim parents.

You can learn more about the class here, insha'Allah:
