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-- madina@pacbell.net (1-323) 296-5961

A mother emailed in a question. She is considering pursuing a PhD as the opportunity presented itself, yet she has a toddler. What to do?
I apologize for the tardiness of this reply. Last few months our life has taken a beautiful new turn with the arrival of Baby Ali. But as promised, here is my two cents.
I was still doing my PhD when we had our first child, Yasmin. Compared to other professions, where the mother has to go to work full-time or has overtime commitments, doing a PhD with a child is easy-ier.
Having said that, compared to not having any other work or study-related commitments, having a child while doing a PhD is hard-er.
What I mean is this: I regret not being able to enjoy my first-born as I could have because I was constantly worried about my PhD. I believe that if we choose to be a receiver of these little blessings, we ought to prioritize them before anything else.

Do You Discipline with a Tender Tongue or Tyrannical One (By: Grandma Jeddah)


Discipline without Disrespecting Fall Newsletter

Learn Discipline Tips from Our Quarterly Parenting Newsletter

Try a Tender Tongue when Teaching
By Grandma Jeddah

“I told you to STOP that!” Does that sound familiar? It doesn’t have to. Here are a few helpful reminders on the wisdom of disciplining with a tender tongue instead of a tyrannical one.
  1. When you shout at your child as a means of seeking proper behavior, you are sending a message to her that this is a suitable way to manage upset feelings and of achieving desirable behavior from others. You are your child’s first teacher. If she sees you ranting, she will be more inclined to rant when she is angry with others, as well. This is what she has observed in her home, and this is what she considers appropriate.
  2. Remember to treat your children the way you wish to be treated. Who wants to be shouted at? No one does.  Being yelled at creates an unsettling and uncomfortable feeling inside the person at the other end of the angry outburst. Use Prophet Muhammad (saw) as a role model when correcting your child.
According to a hadith, Anas Ibn Malik said, I served the Prophet (saw) for ten years, and he never hit me, insulted me or frowned in my face." (Muslim)

This is an amazing hadith! Children misbehaved during the time of The Prophet (saw) as they do today. Even though our children do not always do as we say, we can still correct them in a respectful manner.

Anas ibn Malik reports another hadith and says, “The Messenger of Allah (saw) was the best of people in character. One day he sent me on an errand. I replied: “’I will not go.” But then my conscience told me to do as he instructed. But when I left out, I passed by a group of children playing in the street, and I joined them. Later, the Messenger came out and caught me from the back. I looked at him and saw that he was laughing. He said: “Anas, Did you do as I asked you?” I replied, “I am going, O Messenger of Allah.” (Muslim). 
 
Correcting our children with loud, harsh words is not the most suitable way to achieve their compliance.  In fact, it can actually be counterproductive to a loving and caring relationship that fosters appropriate behavior from them. Why not make today a new beginning and try speaking to your child in a gentle voice the next time she needs to be corrected.

Is Accrditation Best for Your Homeschool (By BJU Press)

Accreditaion May-or May not--be Best for Your Homeschool

I hear a lot of questions about accreditation from homeschooling parents who want to know that their children are getting the highest quality education possible. You might even hear—or read—other parents talking about choosing an accredited curriculum for their children. But for homeschool families, accreditation doesn’t usually apply directly. So what’s accreditation all about, and how does it relate to your homeschool?

Your Late Blooming Young Adult (By Saleh Ali)

Our society is overly obsessed with early achievement

Unfortunately, late bloomers and kids who possess non-traditional talents are often left behind. Your child may not be making straight As - and that's OK.


I won’t forget this girl for a long time. No, she didn’t score well on exams and she hardly grasped any of the concepts the first time. Or the second time. All year long she sat at her desk relatively quietly and was very reluctant to share.  ...

... Perhaps they will bloom later than the schedule society has set for them. You don’t want to lose them before their time comes. Keep watering the dirt, even if you’ve yet to see the shoots emerge from the soil. It’s coming. Be patient. To join the mailing list, send an email to salehericali@gmail.com and write “join the mailing list”.

feet. O Allah! Grant health to my body. O Allah grant health to my hearing. O Allah! Grant health to my sight. There is no deity except You. O Allah! | seek refuge in You from unbelief and
poverty, and from the punishment to the grave. There is no deity except You.

oppressing others or being oppressed, from doing wrong or suffering wrong, and from committing an error or a sin which You will not forgive.

O Allah! I seek refuge in You from the feebleness of old age.

bad actions, bad desires and bad diseases. I seek refuge in You from the burden of debt, from being humbled by people, and from the ridicule of enemies.

O Allah! Strengthen my religion which is my fortress. Make this world a better place of sojourn for me, and grant me a good life in the Hereafter which will be my abode. Make my life increase In all goodness and my death a rest from all evil.

Lord, accept my repentance, wash away my sins, answer my supplication, establish my veracity, guide my heart, make my tongue truthful, and remove all ill feeling from my heart.

O Allah! I ask You for a resolute mind and firmness in following the guidance. I ask You to make me thankful for Your favor, to be of good service to You, and to grant me a sound heart and a truthful tongue. I ask You to grant me what You know to be good and to give me refuge
from what is evil, and to forgive me - and You are the Knower of the Unseen. O Allah! Inspire me with good conduct and save me from the evil of my selfishness. O Allah! I ask You to guide me to the doing of good deeds and abstaining from bad deeds and love those who are humble, and to forgive me and show mercy to me. And if You wish a trial for Your servants, take me to You before falling into lt.

O Allah! I ask You for Your love and the love of those who love You, and for the love of every action which will bring me closer to Your love.

O Allah! I ask You for the best of this request, for the best in my supplication, for the best success and the best reward. Strengthen me, make heavier my balance of good, confirm my faith, elevate my rank, accept my worship, and forgive my mistakes. And I ask of You the highest ranks in the Garden of Paradise. I ask You for good beginnings, good endings, the totality of goodness, from the first to the last, from within and from without, and I ask of You the highest ranks in the Garden.

O Allah! I ask You to exalt my fame, lighten my burden, purify my heart, keep me chaste, forgive me my sins, and I ask of You a high rank in the Garden O Allah! Bless me in my sight, in my hearing, in my soul, in my body, in my conduct. Bless me in my life, in my family, in my work. Accept my good deeds, and I ask of You a high rank In the Garden.

Let us enjoy our hearing, our sight and our faculties as long as You grant us life, and let it be, the last to be taken away from us. Avenge us from
those who have wronged us and help us against our enemies. Let no calamity befall our religion; let not worldly affairs be our greatest care or all about which we know; and let not those who have no fear of You and who do not show mercy toward us rule over us.

O Allah! I ask You to bestow Your mercy on me, to forgive me, to protect me from every sin, to give me a share of every good, and to grant me the attainment of the Garden and salvation from the Fire.

O Allah! Leave not for us a sin which You have not forgiven, nor a shortcoming which You have not concealed, nor a wary which You have not removed, nor a debt which You have not paid, nor a need from among the needs of this world or the Hereafter, the fulfillment of which is beneficial for us and pleasing to You, which You have not fulfilled, 0 Most Merciful of all show us mercy!

O Allah! I ask for a mercy from You by which You will guide my heart, settle my affairs, remove my worries, protect me from what is unseen to me. Make my face radiant, purify my deeds, inspire me with wisdom, avert calamities from me. and protect me from every evil.

O Allah! I ask You for success on the day of judgment, and a life of happiness, and the rank of the martyrs, the companionship of the prophets, and victory over the enemies. O Allah! | ask You for correctness of belief; for a faith which leads to good conduct; for a success which results in eternal felicity; for mercy, health and forgiveness from You, and for Your pleasure.

O Allah! I ask You for health, for integrity, for good character, and that I may be pleased with my portion.

O Allah! seek refuge in You from the evil of myself, and from the evil of every creature which You are grasping by its forelock. O my Lord, keep me on the straight path.


O Allah! You hear my words. You behold my situation, You know what is open and what is hidden within me; nothing is hidden from You. It is me alone who is in need, a humble seeker of Your forgiveness. I beseech You with humility in my heart, with trembling and fear, in prostration and utter helplessness. O Allah! Grant me soundness of belief, goodness of character, forgiveness of my sins, and Your eternal pleasure in the Hereafter. May Allah's blessings be upon Muhammad and his family and companions.

Seeking Knowledge


This Quarter's Newsletter


Whoever travels a path in search of knowledge, Allah makes easy for him a path to Paradise. (Muslim 2699, Sahih)

This quarter’s Habibi Youth newsletter illustrates our honorable tradition of seeking knowledge. Share with your dear young Muslims the amazing story of Zaid bin Thabit (ra) who became the Prophet’s scribe and Maryam Masud Laam who memorized the entire Quran before 6th grade.
Habibi Youth newsletters were developed to help Muslim educators and homeschool parents provide their beloved youth with a learning environment that is rich in Islamic culture and morals. Our hope is that our newsletters will help our youth feel proud of being Muslim rather than ashamed in today’s Islamaphobic environment.
