Why we should send our Children to a Muslim School

Obligations, benefits and blessings
by Hussein Abdulwaheed Amin

At state, secular or church schools in the West today Muslim children do not receive a proper grounding in knowledge of Islam.  Moreover, both in the classroom and in the playground they are often exposed to ideas, influences and behavior which can both pressurize and tempt them away from the straight path of Islam and its moral code.  Thankfully, as Muslim communities expand through immigration and the conversion of westerners, Islamic schools are being set up to cater for the educational and spiritual needs of our young people.  Where possible we should do all we can to strengthen and support these establishments.  Muslim schools are good for our community and our children because:

* The basics of Islam are taught and practiced in the school
* Almost all the teachers are Muslim and thus maintain an Islamic atmosphere in the classroom.
* Students are expected to wear Islamic attire and maintain a proper Islamic manner which is hopefully  reflected in the rest of their lives.
* There is less peer pressure to indulge in any un-Islamic behavior.
* Topics covered in classes are presented from an Islamic perspective, thus enabling the students to relate to the world from an Islamic point of view.
* There are no problems of drugs, guns, sexual promiscuity nor sexual education taught in a moral and religious vacuum.
* Muslim schools usually have small classes and a good student/teacher relationship and ratio. Read the rest of this entry »

Intelligence and learning

Intelligence and learning

A child`s intelligence is mainly inherited from his parents, and the parents` intelligence is usually a guide to the child`s. However, parents of very high are low intelligence usually have children who are nearer average than they are themselves.

Children brought up at home, with all that this means in terms of loving care, are more advanced by the age of six months then are children brought up in an impersonal institution, and this trend often continues into the school years. Some parents teach their children counting games and,later, word games. They also stimulate children to develop ideas and to invent new games. Many doctors believe that in spite of a poor start, a child from a deprived environment often `catches up` in later life.

Tender Meat

(And He it is who has subjected the sea to you, that you eat thereof fresh tender meat (i.e. fish), and that you bring forth out of it ornaments to wear.

 

Scientists confirmed that the protein present in fish is of high nutritional value, easily digested and after absorption it doesn’t leave behind except a little of waste. The fish is easier in digestion than meat; therefore it is considered a useful food for patients with digestive disorders, it also contains all the main sulphurous proteins.

Low political representation of Indian Muslims and the way out

By Shahid Rashid Talukdar,

It is a fact that representation of Muslims in Indian Politics, since the Independence, has been “disproportionately low”, ranging between 6 – 8%, as compared to their share in population which is “estimated to be around 14%”, but believed to be even higher. The reasons for such low representation vary from the lack of effective Muslim leadership to the nepotism and favoritism of Political bigwigs. The fear of political parties that non-Muslim electorates may not choose to elect a Muslim candidate, stands, perhaps, as the greatest deterrent for most of the parties to field many Muslim candidates in elections. These together have created an almost communal environment where Muslims have hardly any say in the ruling of the State even though they form a considerable portion of the electorate.

There are other factors such as affirmative actions in favor of Scheduled Castes/Tribes (SC/ST), which have snatched away a significant portion, roughly “22% of the parliamentary seats” and over “27% of the state assembly seats”, of constituencies from Muslim candidates. The Muslims, being almost excluded from SC/STs, cannot even compete in the election in the reserved seats. And quite surprisingly, it has been observed that there is a deliberate attempt to discriminate against Muslim using the reservation policy.
