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

Tip 4 How to Become a Patient Parent (By Grandma Jeddah)

Know the value of being patient. Why do people sacrifice to get a good education, obtain a quality job, or marry a good spouse? They see the benefit in attaining these accomplishments. Knowing the value of being patient can help motivate you to strive your hardest to become more patient.  Here are some inspiring points from Quran and hadith that remind us of the rewards of being patient:

And be patient. Surely, Allah is with those who are patient. (Quran8:46)  Who among us is not in need of having Allah on our side.

Abu Yahya Suhaib bin Sinan (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that: The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, "How wonderful is the case of a believer; there is good for him in everything and this applies only to a believer. If prosperity attends him, he expresses gratitude to Allah, and that is good for him; and if adversity befalls him, he endures it patiently, and that is better for him". (Muslim) What a priceless blessing to be counted among the true believers.

Whosoever would be patient, Allah will give him patience, and no one is granted a gift better and more comprehensive than patience". (Bukhari and Muslim)

If you try to be patient and succeed, Allah will give you patience. Masha’Allah, you will be rewarded with the very gift you are searching for.

Allah Almighty says, " . . . those who control their anger and pardon other people. Allah loves the do good-doers," (Quran 3:134)  What a wonderful reward to be loved by Allah, Glory be to Him the Most High!
