Islam’s View on Raising and Discipling Children

Mother of three and author of  An Islamic Perspective on Child-Rearing and Discipline, Um Saliha  talked about the confusion there is between religion and culture when it comes to parenting. I think this article was written for a non-Muslim audience, however, I believe it can also serve as a great reminder to us Muslims as well about raising and disciplining our children according to the Quran and sunna and letting go of traditional or cultural practices that have no basis or importance in Islam.  The article is beautifully written and not boring at all! I really enjoyed it and hope you […]

Enjoy Your Life

  Enjoy Your Life by Sheikh Muhammad Al ‘Arifi is a great book that I read some years ago and thoroughly enjoyed reading, mashaaAllah. It doesn’t specifically focus on parenting but there are sections in the book where he address how to deal with children and he highlights the ways in which the Prophet dealt with his family and children. I wrote an in depth review of this book for Habibi Halaqas and it’s still on their website. To read my full review, click here!

Discipline Do’s and Don’ts

And it’s so very easy to become so angry when parents discipline their children because all we see is the mistake or wrong doing of the child. Grandma Jeddah writes about the five common discipline mistakes parents make when disciplining their children. This article sure was helpful to me. Click here for the full article.

Must-read Article

I’ve asked it of grandparents, parents, sons, and daughters.  I’ve asked it of Pakistanis, Indians, Afghans, Arabs, Americans, Asians, and Africans.  I’ve sat people down at parties, emailed friends’ parents, called up aunties on the telephone, and stopped uncles on their way out the door.  Any family whose practice of Islam has impressed me, any child whose manners have stunned me, any teenager whose conduct with his or her sibling has given me reason for pause, any adult whose balance of deen (religion) and dunya (world) has wowed me, I have accosted and asked, “What exactly did your parents do […]
