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

5 tips to Getting your Youngster up for Suhoor
By:
 Grandma Jeddah
            It’s Ramadan! Time for early morning meals, sundown feasts and late night prayers.  You want your child to learn the rituals of Ramadan, because Ramadan is one of the pillars of faith of our religion. Why not start out by getting him in the habit of getting up for the early morning suhoor meal.  It’s full of blessings and can give your child the energy he needs to make it through the day on an empty stomach.
             Although suhoor is an important start to a day of fasting, parents sometimes have a difficult time getting their children up for suhoor. Here are some helpful tips on how to wake up your child for suhoor.
            First, make sure your child is getting sufficient rest throughout the day.  A well rested child is easier to wake up early in the morning than one who is in need of rest.  Try to ensure that he’s getting his required hours of sleep per day.  Children aged five to ten need daily about 10 to 11 hours of sleep.  Youth over ten years need about 8 to 9 hours a day of sleep. Attempt to get your child to bed on time.   It’s common to stay awake into the wee hours of the night making up for lost eating time during Ramadan, but seek to avoid keeping your child up into extremely late hours of the night. That way, waking up early will be much easier on his body both physically and mentally.       
            Second, cook a delicious aromatic meal for suhoor.  Many people will tell you how nice it is to wake up to the aroma of fresh pancakes and bacon sizzling in the kitchen.  Once your child is aroused, your food on the stove can do the rest of the work for you.
            Third, use a calm and gentle voice when trying to wake up your child.  Who wants to wake up to a harsh, gruff voice shouting at him?  All you’d feel like doing is turning over on the other side, crawling up under your covers and going back to sleep. 
           
            The fourth thing is to remove the covers from him so he can’t pull them back up.  This makes him uncomfortable so that his sleep isn’t as enticing.  
            The fifth thing is to make an incentive chart using stars as rewards for getting up for suhoor.   Place a star on the chart whenever he gets out of his bed for the suhoor meal.  After he’s earned a certain number of stars, give him a treat or take him somewhere special.  This might encourage him to even look forward to getting up for suhoor, when he lies down to sleep at night.”
            Let’s summarize the points
1.     Make sure your child is getting sufficient rest. Try to get him to bed early so he’ll be rested when it’s time for Fajr.
2.    Cook a delicious smelling meal
3.     Use a comforting voice when waking him.
4.     Remove his covers for less comfort.
5.     Use an incentive chart to encourage him to get up by rewarding him with stars for getting up for suhoor.
            But don’t forget . . .  even though suhoor is an important aspect of Ramadan, don’t push to hard if your child doesn’t have a desire to get up for the early meal. Suhoor is recommended but not an indispensable part of fasting.  You want your child to develop a joy for the month of Ramadan. Let him take pleasure in the other areas of Ramadan that he looks forward to, as well—enjoying a delicious mouth-watering meal with family and friends after sundown!

Summertime/School-Out Discipline Tips by: Grandma Jeddah

Summertime/School-Out Discipline Tips by: Grandma Jeddah 

Assalamu Alaikum Mothers,

Soon school will be out and your children will be home most of the day. If you are concerned that they will have little or no structured time at home which might lead to increased discipline problems, Grandma Jeddah has some suggestions.   Try to be proactive this summer to help minimize discipline problems in your home.  Here is a courtesy reminder of how you can start summer off right for you and your children, insha'Allah.

Please visit Grandma Jeddah's website and go to the Ask Grandma Jeddah and Grandma Jeddah's Tips pages. You will find loads of valuable parenting help on those pages that give you tips on managing those exasperating tantrums to handling kids with ADHD.  And don't forget about the Newsletter Archives page.  Grandma Jeddah has compiled all of her previous newsletters in the archives for your review. Some of the topics you will find in the archives are gentle ways to encourage your child to fast (Ramadan is coming soon) to controlling your strong-willed child.

The page that most mothers seem to take great benefit from is the Parenting Support page. On this page Grandma Jeddah has gathered parenting and discipline websites, articles, videos, audio recordings and much more.  All of these resources are there for you. Please take advantage of them to help you start off this summer with a more pleasant and manageable household for you and your children,  insha'Allah.

And finally, don't forget to visit Grandma Jeddah's blog, where you will find article after article of discipline help, insha'Allah. Please click on the links to our website and blog below.

Oh, and don't forget . . . Grandma Jeddah will be announcing her new e-book later this month, insha'Allah. I think you will really like the topic, insha'Allah.
I ask that Allah blesses all your children to grow up as good Muslims and that He blesses you and your family with the good of this world and the hereafter and protect you from the hellfire.

Your Sister in Islam
