Bisimilaah! Praise be to Allaah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allaah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allaah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
Being a mother is one of the greatest blessings in a woman’s life. It is filled with gratifying and amazing moments. From the moment you become pregnant—slowly witnessing the significant changes your body goes through—to the moment your child comes out into the world and you hold him in your arms for the first time, you realize that your life will forever change. The responsibility that you bear as a mother is a huge one. As a mother, you will have to gently and lovingly care for, discipline, guide, and educate your children until they become adults. This means you have the opportunity to shape and influence your child’s identity and outlook later on in life.
You are without a doubt his first and most important teacher; but as wonderful and fun as motherhood is, it can also be challenging and confusing. This is why I started the this blog, Muslim Mother Source (MMS). It’s an attempt to help Muslim mothers, new or seasoned by providing helpful tips and sources. Through MMS, my aim is to put together any helpful resources and information relevant to caring for and raising happy and healthy but most importantly righteous children. As Muslims we have to live our lives in accordance to the commandments of Allah.
We have to worship Allah on a daily basis. Our religion is not one that is practiced on a particular day or week or month. Our religion is part of our identity and our ways of life. In order to raise practicing and dedicated Muslim children, we have to be good Muslims ourselves first and we have to have the correct understanding of our religion. We must carefully select the right resources to teach our children when it comes to educating them and disciplining them. That means we can use anything that is helpful to us and our children so long as it doesn’t go against our religious beliefs.

While I’ll try to focus on the more serious issues of parenting like disciplining, educating and building good character and manners, I will also at times write about whatever new products I love that I’m using for my children whether it’s feeding products for babies, books, toys, or whatever else I think mothers will find helpful! May Allah make it easy for us to raise our children as true Muslims, Allahuma Amin!
