  • Islam & Parenting #21stCenturyChallenges Play all

    Parenting is one of the most important roles in Islam. The soul of any child is like an uncut precious jewel entrusted into the care of the parent.

    As the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "all of you are shepherds and each of you is responsible for his flock. A man is the shepherd of the people of his house and he is responsible. A woman is the shepherd of the house of her husband and she is responsible. Each of you is a shepherd and each is responsible for his flock".

    This seminar looks at how to raise upright children in the spirit of the Qur'an and the Prophetic Sunnah in modern times.
