Respected Parent / Guardian
Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu
All praise is to Allah Ta’ala who has blessed us with Islaam and Imaan. May peace and salutations be in abundance upon our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Allah Ta’ala declares in the Holy Qur’aan: ”O You who believe! Save yourself and your family from the fire of Jahannum whose fuel is mankind and stones!”
In a Hadith Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam has said, ”Each of you is a Shepherd and you will be questioned regarding your flock.”
From the above it is deduced that we as parents have been entrusted with a very important responsibility towards our children. Allah Ta’ala has gifted them to us as a trust. It is our duty to fulfil this trust to the best of our ability, otherwise Almighty Allah Ta’ala will take us to task in the Hereafter.
The most important need of our children is proper upbringing and sound Islamic knowledge. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam has said, ”The seeking of Knowledge is Fardh (compulsory) on every Muslim.” The Knowledge of Deen will protect their Imaan in the temporary life of this world and will save them from the fire of Jahannum in the hereafter.
It is only through the knowledge of Deen that our children will be obedient to us, respect us and take care of us when we need them the most. If we neglect imparting Islamic Education to our children, we as parents will suffer the consequences the most.
In order to provide our children with good Islamic education and to give them a strong and firm basis for their Islaamic development, some Rules and Guidelines have been formulated. This will greatly assist us to improve the discipline and level of education in the Madrasah, Insha Allah.
