Raising children with deen and dunya

By Hina Khan-Mukhtar | SeekersGuidance | 21 Jun 2012

I still vividly remember the first night I spent by myself in the hospital after delivering my eldest son Shaan. The guests were gone for the day, the hallway lights were dimmed, the nurses were speaking outside my room in muted tones.

“Knock, knock!” came a cheerful voice from the doorway. “Someone’s hungry and wants his mommy!”


Teaching your Child about Islam

By Freda Shamma | ISNA | Chicago | 2000

Children are born in a state of fitra (purity) and then their parents teach them to be believers or unbelievers. According to the Musnad Ibn Hanbal, "The children of the unbelievers are better than you grown-ups. Every living creature is born with a righteous nature." It is our obligation and duty as parents to teach our children so that they grow up to be believing, practicing Muslims. Sending the child to an Islamic weekend school or to a full-time Islamic school is an important but minor part of their Islamic education. The major 'institution of learning' for each child is his family, and the major 'professors' of this institution are the parents.


Modern educations false promises

By Mohammad Azeemullah

Ours is an age of crisis…a crisis in science, in literature, in thoughts, in perceptions, in attitudes, in behaviors and in relationships. Crisis is everywhere. It has pushed major parts of culture to a state of acute dislocation, conflict, destruction and bewilderment.
