Educating Muslim Children in the UK


Assalamu ‘Alaikum

Following on from my post on Muslim Dads Facebook page I would like to carry out a brief poll on how Muslim Parents are educating their children. The poll is to measure the main method of teaching the national curriculum and is not asking about after school arabic lessons, or lessons at home etc. That is a different topic and may be discussed on another thread in the future.

I would be grateful if you could answer the brief survey above. I am happy for you to leave comments below if you wish to discuss further.

Jazakum Allahu Khair

16 Sha’ban 1433 | Hadith of the Day | Make the Prayer Wherever You May Be


The Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:

“Your Lord delights at a shepherd who, on the peak of a mountain crag, gives the call to prayer and prays. Then Allah (glorified and exalted be He) will say: ‘Look at this servant of Mine, he gives the call to prayer and performs the prayers; he is in awe of Me. I have forgiven My servant [his sins] and have admitted him to Paradise.’”

[An-Nasa’i]
