  1. Salam Especially asking parents, but I'd appreciate input from young people too. My seven year old is a math wiz, and pretty quick to pick up science concepts too, but she is reluctant to pick up a book and read. I'd like to encourage her to develop her natural math ability, but I'd also like to encourage her to become a reader. If a person can read, they can teach themselves anything, and through fiction we experience scenarios we would never encounter in real life, increasing wisdom. She likes books that involve cats and magic, but there are (as might be expected) a limited number of those, especially when it's further limited to second/third grade reading level. Any suggestions for books, or even puzzle or math books or games that might get her reading but are still fun and age appropriate? @Haji 2003? Any expertise to share?
  2. Assalam-o-Alaikum! I hope you people are in the best of your health and emaan. there is one thing regarding which I need an advice of my fellow brothers and sisters for which I think I lack the experience. I am a 19 yr old girl from Pakistan. during my salat, I'm used to praying that oh Allah! let me be of some help to your Makhlooq. a few days back I've started tutoring 2 kids because I needed money. I think that this is my prayer getting accepted because the kids are really in a miserable situation and need someone's help/counselling. they have a physically abusing father who gets irked at the smallest things and beats the kids. their mother is also in a great misery a) because of this kind of a husband b) a mentally challenged child (they're 3 in total, the one coming to me are fine). so, she understandably is not in a mood to pamper the children or make them feel loved. the children are really bad at studies, they suck at maths. the girl is a sixth grader and the boy is in fourth grade. they are not rude or misbehave with me rather very sweet, the girl even brought me bangles as a gift. but, the boy does not do the homework I give to him. when I told their mother about this she was about in tears, told me that the children don't listen to her, always fighting and especially the boy, misbehaves with her. they boy even slapped her back when she first slapped her. their mother has asked me to physically punish the children if they do not do their work. but guys I don't know what to do. like I'm sooooo against physically abusing the child ( i have been beaten up by my parent too for the smallest things and I know this scars you for the rest of your lives, but it's kinda normal in Pakistan). I think the children are really damaged because of the environment of their home, they are not the misbehaving kind of children. I just want them to get good grades and respect their mother because I believe otherwise the fee their mother gave me for tutoring them would be haram and i'd be not fulfilling the purpose. i told the boy regarding mother's status in Islam and took promise from him that he'd never do such a thing again. i want to counsel them and you know, make them feel worthy of love because the age gap between me and them is not big like i'm kind of a big sister to them so i think they'd understand what i say better as compared to their parents. so please guys pour in suggestions on how can I make these children do their work and teach a thing or two without hitting, slapping or shouting at them? I'd be really obliged. jzakAllah.
  3. Bringing up our children, Part 1 - Sheikh Nuru Mohammed - Shahr Ramadhan 1436 Bringing up our children, Part 2 - Sheikh Nuru Mohammed - Shahr Ramadhan 1436
  4. As salam alaikum everyone! A friend told me this would be the best place to get a lot of feedback in a short amount of time so I'm very much a newbie on this form (this is my first post!). This is amazing and kudos to the team that brings this to us - may you all be rewarded for your hardwork for the global community! So I'm posting to get some feedback on a new children's toy line I'm developing. Please check out the pics below and let me know what you think! It all started when I noticed my own 1.5 year old daughter learning the English alphabet super fast by simply being a kid and playing with an alphabet peg board puzzle. When I went online to buy her an arabic version, I couldn't find one or had to have it shipped to the US from overseas and it got too expensive. So then I started talking to some artisans on Etsy to see if I could make one for her but then it hit me...our children should have a whole line of educational toys to introduce them to our concepts, ideas, events and personalities at an early age and through the wonderment of childhood. So following the advice in Imam Ali's hadith of "in order to train your child, bring yourself down to their level of childhood", we established Ayat's Toys! We're in the final stage of development now and I have been on a mission to get advice/feedback/thoughts from as many young Shia parents as possible before our official launch so we would love to hear feedback/ideas/constructive criticism from as many parents (or soon to be parents! :) ) as possible. Please let me know what you think! So far, we have 2 very basic puzzles for young children. The first puzzle is a family tree of the 14 infallibles and goes "clockwise" after Imam Hussain as of course. The second is also a peg board puzzle introducing hadith-e-kisa to a young child. This will iA be accompanied by the hadith in a nice "bed time story" type format. The third is for an older 6-8 year old child so they can hopefully have discuss the moral lessons behind the choice Hurr had to make and other concepts like standing up for what's right even when it's hard. iA we hope to have new designs soon so please do keep our small endeavor in your prayers! Below are pics of my own daughter playing with the sample puzzles for her age group.
  5. As salam alaikum everyone! (I'm new here and not sure if my last post went through or not - moderator, please delete this is it's duplicative). So a friend of mine told me this would be the best place to get a lot of feedback quickly. This is amazing and thank you to the team that brings this to us! May you all be rewarded for this community service inshallah. So I'm posting to get feedback/ideas/comments/constructive criticism from as many parents (or soon to be parents! :) ) as possible on a new toy line that we will be officially launching very soon inshallah! It all started when I noticed my own 1.5 year old learning the English alphabet super fast by simply being a kid and playing with an alphabet peg board puzzle. When I tried to order an arabic alphabet puzzle for her, the only options required overseas shipping to the US and were too expensive. So then I started talking to some artisans on Etsy to see if one could be made when it hit me...our children should have a whole line of toys introducing concepts, events, ideas and individuals to them at an early age and through play. So following the advice in the hadith of Imam Ali as: "to train a child, bring yourself down to their level of childhood" we established Ayat's Toys! Below are pics of my daughter playing with some of the sample puzzles. The first two are basic puzzles for very young children. One is of the family tree of the infallibles (it goes clockwise but as you can see my daughter placed some of the pieces in the wrong place haha). One is a peg board puzzle introducing hadith-e-kisa and will inshallah be accompanied by a "bed time story" type format of the hadith. And the 3rd is for an older child about 6-8 so they can have a meaningful discussion with caretakers about Hurr and the decision he made and other concepts such as choosing right over wrong even when it's hard. Please let me know what you think! Any and all comments/criticism is welcome. We are very excited for our official launch soon and are trying to get as much feedback as possible before then!
