A little long but oh-so-worth the watch… Bathed in God’s love – a feeling perfect for the Laylatul Qadr nights also!
“Then if there was a delay (in Your anser),
I would blame You, due to my ignorance,
and perhaps the delay was best for me,…
for You know the outcome of all affairs.”
Talk about truly spreading the love – watch the video!
“Can my child see the beauty of Islam in me?”
I love this!
“At the risk of being misunderstood, I’ll say this: A beard and hijab won’t make your child Muslim. I don’t say this to dismiss the rituals of the religion, but to put the emphasis (first) on something greater. Just as early revelation focused on the beauty and mercy of Allah, we, too, should impart the good. Then, upon that foundation, we ladle the specifics of worship, the rules and regulations that guide us on this journey. But only in love, we must do it all in love. You’d think that would be a given, but how often do we see children turned away from Islam because of harsh, unbalanced parents?”

Wednesday – Nouman Ali Khan Day!
I love this gem which shows us a little snippet from the Quran on what it means to show love to children…
From Bayyinah Institute: “Surah Yusuf highlights the love between a father and his son when Prophet Ya’qoob shows his love by being an attentive and caring listener. In Surah Al-Qasas, the mother of Prophet Musa shows her love by holding and feeding her baby. Between the two accounts, you find a complete picture of what it means to show love to children. On one hand you’ve got to make them so comfortable around you that they will tell you anything, even a dream. On the other hand, you’ve got to show them your love through physical affection (holding them and hugging them).”
