How to Encourage Your Daughters to Wear Hijab

It's important that you talk to your daughters about the hijab. Ideally you should start teaching them when they're still young rather than wait until they've reached puberty. What often happens is that the girls become used to not wearing it and so don't want to start putting it on.

Then of course, depending on your child, there's the rebellious teenage years. If your daughter has the personality of rebelling against you or authority then when you ask her to wear it she will rebel against it like she does against the other things that you say.

I have people close to me that refuse to wear it because they weren't brought up with it as a part of their deen. Don't leave it until too late!

What you can do to encourage your daughters to wear hijab:

Book Review: Nightly News with Safa

Title: Nightly News with Safa
Author: Helal Musleh
Illustrator: Hatem Aly

When Safa didn't like all the sad and angry stories that was on the Nightly News, she decided to be proactive and do something about it. This is an optimistic book, teaching children that when they don't like something, they can do something about it and find an alternative.

Taking Care of Your Newborn Child

Now that you have given birth, it's time to think about your baby's education. Yes, education. As you may know, education of your baby actually starts in the womb. Read this article that I've written almost 20 years ago. (It's been doing the rounds on the internet since then without reference to its author.) It explains, with reference to the hadeeth about the development of the fetus and ruh, about how the fetus can hear sounds.

If your fetus missed the education while in the womb then it's not too late. Your baby's education can start now. But don't get me wrong, education is not about drilling knowledge into your child but it's about nurturing and supporting your baby's development. As I see it, there are four areas that you can help your baby to develop.

Free Printable: Bee Activities

And your Lord inspired the bees, saying: "Take you habitations in the mountains and in the trees and in what they erect."Then, eat of all fruits, and follow the ways of your Lord made easy (for you)." There comes forth from their bellies, a drink of varying colour wherein is healing for men. Verily, in this is indeed a sign for people who think. (Quran, 16: 68-69)
Bees are fascinating to study. When I did research to write this activity book for children, I was really amazed and humbled by the above verses. I wrote this book with an Islamic world-view so Allah is mentioned a lot, including the verses quoted above.
