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

Tip 3 How to Become a Patient Parent (By Grandma Jeddah)


Tip 3 How to Become a Patient Parent (By Grandma Jeddah)

Begin making dua asking Allah for his help with your anger management problem. There are some things that come easy to certain people and other things they might have to struggle to achieve. If being patient during trials is something you have a problem with, seek help in the One who has power over all things. Allah loves for His servants to ask Him for help. In fact, He gets angry when you don’t ask. People are just the opposite. They get tired of you asking. So go to the One who can truly grant you success—Your Lord.

And when you ask, take note of what the Prophet (saw) has said.
 The supplication of a slave continues to be granted as long as he does not supplicate for a sinful thing or for something that would cut off the ties of kinship and he does not grow impatient.” It was said: “O Messenger of Allah! What does growing impatient mean?” He (saw) said, “It is one’s saying: `I supplicated again and again but I do not think that my prayer will be answered.’ Then he becomes frustrated (in such circumstances) and gives up supplication altogether.(Muslim)

Never give up asking Allah for his help; it may be that he wants you to grow closer to Him by continually seeking His support.

Tip 2 How to Become a Patient Parent (By Grandma Jeddah)

Tip 2 How to Become a Patient Parent (By Grandma Jeddah)

2. Realize that change doesn’t occur overnight. Achieving patience will take consistent effort over time. It is likely that you have found that your unruly behavior has been effective at times in getting you what you desire. After all, who wants to deal with a person who sounds like they’ve gone mad—it’s easier to give in and comply.

We are all affected by those around us. If you were raised in a family in which anger was used as a tool to get others to comply, it’s not odd that you have chosen to use this practice as a coping mechanism as well. But don’t lose hope. Insha’Allah, you can achieve the noble characteristic of patience and control your angry feelings. With each step of the way, remember success is built upon failure. Each time you revert back into your unproductive manner of behavior, view it as a experience to learn from rather than an additional failure.

Tip # 3 for Managing Your Child who is Hyperactive (From: Grandma Jeddah)

  Do you have a hyperactive child? 

 Here is a Terrific Tip to help manage your child's behavior
 without hitting or shouting:

Jewel 3 - Be realistic.

You know your child is active so don’t expect from him what he’s not likely to do. He may not sit quietly with his hands folded like your friend’s young boy—that’s OK.  Everyone is unique in their own way. When you accept your son for who he is--you will help yourself obtain greater tranquility.
