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!

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 […]
