Discussion and advice for parents and teachers…

    I have recently begun having a weekly circle with my kids. As the kids are getting older I  find that the week goes by so fast and we don’t get to talk about islam in any real depth because everyone is either busy with housework, homework or quran classes. So both me and my husband decided that we HAVE to set a time and day and discuss different areas of islam every week, come rain or shine. We talked about the following  hadith

    Ibn Umar reported, The Messenger of Allah (saws) said:

    ‘A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim; he does him no injustice, nor does he leave him alone (to be the victim of another’s injustice); and whoever does the needful for his brother, Allah does the needful for him, and whoever removes the distress of a Muslim, Allah removes from him a distress out of the distresses of the day of resurrection; and whoever covers (the fault of) a Muslim, Allah will cover his sins on the day of resurrection.”

    Alhumdulilah it was very productive,the kids were very happy to discuss examples and even did some role play. Inshallah why not hold a weekly circle with your kids you could invite their friends or cousins. Choose a book of hadith and go through areas that you feel your kids need to know about. Inshallah if we do this regularly we can help them build strong islamic characters.
