Subhan'Allah a beautiful course this Saturday was on the topic of Takabur.  Giving us the chance to discuss character perfection, according the Quran & Sunnah.

Indeed, there is a lump of flesh in every human.
If it is sound, the whole body is sound. 
If it is corrupt, the whole body is corrupt. 
Verily this piece of flesh is the heart.

PEARLS OF AL IMAN
BRINGING UP CHILDREN
19th NOVEMBER 2016
A brief overview from one student who attended this weeks course:

"Alhumdulilah lovely course at Al Iman on bringing up children. My personal reflections...

1. Don't lose yourself in your child... 'wealth and children are but adornment of worldly life... enduring good deeds...'
2. Show respect to them (don't forget even in adulthood) e.g. Prophet Muhammad SAW spreading shawl for daughter to sit.
3. EXPRESS your love, kiss on forehead Sunnah
4. They are ghair mukalif so treat them like that
5. Keep making their schedules harder as they grow. Contribution to household chores, teaches life skills and responsibility. When they go to bed they should not know when they put their head on the pillow and when they fell asleep, no time for distractions. 
6. Up to age 2 we are their slaves, then up to age 14 they are our slaves, beyond age 14 we treat them as our advisors (in Pakistani culture we forget third stage)
7. Spiritual growth... your own Iman battery needs to be fully charged first. Monkey see monkey do
8. Importance of play!
9. Academic growth... we are making them fragile! Pushing/ working them hard will not break them
10. Social competition, do not lose yourself and your child in this dunya

And many more discussions but these were the most meaningful to me. Hope it makes sense!"
