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

To Parents, Teachers and Home school Mothers

Welcome to the Amazing new newsletter Habibi Youth.

It does so in an entertaining fashion with a literary style established for their reading level.

Tip 5 How to Become a Patient Parent (By Grandma Jeddah)

Tip 5 How to Become a Patient Parent (By Grandma Jeddah)

      Realize that Allah is aware of your difficulty. Often times your anger is a result of a hardship you are experiencing. Maybe your kids have been nagging you about going somewhere all day and you’re at your wits end with their complaining. Or maybe your husband has been snappy ever since he arrived home from work. May be it’s the pounding headache that won’t seem to go away.

       When you are feeling angry, hurt, or frustrated, often times you want others to know how you are feeling, in particular those whom you consider to be the cause of your frustration. When others seemingly disregard your observable feelings of exasperation, this is when that angry feeling can really begin to flare up. During these initial moments, remember the following hadith. Let it be a means of consolation for you rather than your resorting to irate outbursts.
Abu Sa`id and Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (saw) said: "Never a believer is stricken with a discomfort, an illness, an anxiety, a grief or mental worry or even the pricking of a thorn but Allah will expiate his sins on account of his patience." (Bukhari and Muslim)

     Others may not know of or even consider the difficulty you are experiencing. Take comfort in knowing that Allah The Most Gracious Most Merciful is always aware. And He is most capable of removing your discomfort or compensating you for it.

       Controlling your anger can be one of the most difficult goals you aspire to achieve in life. But it is well worth the effort. You want to be among the most righteous; you want to be a true 
believer; you want Allah to be on your side . . . so strive your utmost  to control your anger and reach for patience so you will be amply rewarded.

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

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!

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.
