Protecting our children from the evil of this world is one of the best things we can do for them when they are young. As they grow, equipping them with the proper knowledge to protect themselves becomes even more essential.

Amna Ateef is not the ordinary 14 year old girl. Despite her young age, she’s managed to figure out what she’s good at and spends a lot of her time doing what she loves.

First week of April is already gone! I can’t believe it. I’m not the only one who seems to be in shock about how fast time is flying by us these days, subhanalaah. Almost every day or every other day I hear someone mentioning something about how fast the time seems to be going.
