4 Educational Shows for Children

While I don’t think babies should ever be exposed to any sort of screen time, I think for children over the age of three it’s OK if they sometimes watch a nice kid’s show that’s educational and entertaining at the same time. There are hundreds of different kid’s shows to choose from on TV and online but choosing a good show and videos for our children to watch is not as easy as we may think. I don’t want my child to be wasting 30 or even an hour of his time sitting and watching something where he will not […]

5 Negative Effects of Comparing Your Child to Other Kids

We can all agree as parents we want our children to be the best. We want them to walk, talk and learn the same time as other children their age. We even want them to do better than their peers so we push them to try harder and pressure them so much. And if we see our children being a little behind on some things whether it is learning to read or whatever else, many of us start to panic because we compare them to other children their age and wonder why our children aren’t at the same level as […]

Mother’s Day Celebrations

Around this time of the year, we usually get bombarded with various commercials and advertisements about mothers. Companies now want to remind you how important it is to show how much you appreciate your mother by giving buying her something “nice.” I’m talking about mother’s day, of course. Many people around the world, the majority being non-Muslims celebrate mother’s day once a year. In the United States, mother’s day falls on the 10th of May, which is coming up soon.

We are living in a world that is technically advanced. Everywhere we go there are computers and phones and all types of other electronic devices. Teenagers and adults alike are on their smart phones so much that it’s hard to find someone looking up these days while they wait in lines or even while waiting for the traffic light to turn green!

Traveling With The Quran

Spending too much time on entertainment is no doubt a bad thing–it’s basically wasting precious time. However, we all know as human beings, we will need some sort of entertainment sometimes. Watching a beneficial program, spending time talking with friends and family or reading a good book are all good ways to relax and entertain ourselves without over-doing it.  While I don’t really have a “favorite” show, there are shows that I like to watch sometimes which are entertaining and also beneficial in some way. What I’m watching currently… One of the best shows/documentaries I came across last year is […]

Where Is The Time Going?!

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.

Just recently, I heard someone say “it’s like February and March didn’t even happen!” That’s exactly how I feel too. Any way, are you wondering yet why I’m going on and on about how fast time seems to be going by? As time goes or rather […]
