“Nobody can live forever. Allah (SWT) created us and gives us life, and Allah will decide when to end our lives and take us back to Him (2:156). Naturally, we might fear the time when loved ones will pass away, and we also might worry about when our own time will come. But our faith tells us about death and teaches us what we must do to prepare for the hereafter. In this book, we teach two key lessons. In the first story, “Life Goes On,” Amira’s parents explain that they can’t and won’t always be with her, but that Allah (SWT) always is and will always continue to take care of her. Not only that, a person’s life doesn’t stop with death; rather, it is a transition from one world to another. Therefore, while it’s expected to miss the one who passed away, we should take solace in the fact that, “The hereafter is better and more lasting” (87:17). The second story is about preparing ourselves for the hereafter. Our belief in Qiyamah, the Day of Judgement, fundamentally changes how we live our lives. We didn’t come into this world simply to go to school, get a job, have a family, and then die. Allah (SWT) tells us that He created death and life as a test to see who is the best in deeds (67:2). We must try to perform the best of deeds such that we become good human beings in the eyes of God, before our time on earth is up. Good deeds are like bricks, which we can use to build our house in paradise, our ultimate destination, insha’Allah. The second story, “A Home in the Hereafter,” conveys this lesson through Haroon Uncle’s example, as he role models what it means to live a life for the next.”—Provided by publisher.

Inspire your child this ramadan with the amazing story of the Noble prophet Are you looking for a book for your child to learn Islam this ramadan? Do you want a book that is detailed yet simple and easy for children to understand and written in a way that's engaging for children? Follow the life of the Prophet ﷺ in his first 13 years in Mecca after he was chosen to call the people to Allah, the challenges he faced, the allies he made, the plots of his enemies and how Allah granted him Victory. This book is broken down into 30 chapters that can be read daily in the blessed month of Ramadan. Discover how the Prophet strove hard to call the people to Allah, how his people who had loved and trusted him became his enemies. How Islam slowly but surely was growing despite the trials and persecution the believers were enduring at the hands of the idols worshippers. It tells the stories of the noble companions and their strong character and sacrifices, like Hamza who did not want to be a Muslim until his honour was challenged, Abubakr and how came to be known as As-Siddiq (the truthful), how Bilaal endured pain and suffering because he believed in Allah. Then there was Najaashi, the Christian king whose faith was tested when he came to hear about Islam. See how the times changed for the believers and their enemies, one winning today and the other winning the next. And when the Prophet ﷺ and his companions were treated worse than ever, and there was no sign of hope, and the Arabs had chosen to reject Islam, and it looked as if the enemies of Islam were close to destroying it, then came the noble, honourable and chosen Ansars (The Helpers), through whom Allah turned the tide. This is an amazing read for children or anyone interested in learning Islam. Make the most for your child this Ramadan with this beautiful Islamic story.
Progress in biomedical science has called for an international discussion of the medical, ethical, and legal problems that confront physicians, medical researchers, infertile couples, pregnant women, and parents of premature or disabled infants. In addition, the unprecedented technological developments in obstetrical, perinatal, and neonatal medicine in recent years have indicated a need for an international forum for interdisciplinary dialogue regarding the definition of early human life, the neurological development of early human life, the value of early human life, the obligations for its protection and prolongation, and the limits to these obligations.
"While 9/11 and its aftermath created a traumatic turning point for most of the writers in this book, it is telling that none of their essays begin with that moment. These young people were living, probing, and shifting their Muslim identities long before 9/11.... I’ve heard it said that the second generation never asks the first about its story, but nearly all the essays in this book include long, intimate portrayals of Muslim family life, often going back generations. These young Muslims are constantly negotiating the differences between families for whom faith and culture were matters of honor and North America’s youth culture, with its emphasis on questioning, exploring, and inventing one’s own destiny."—from the Introduction by Eboo Patel In Growing Up Muslim, Andrew Garrod and Robert Kilkenny present fourteen personal essays by college students of the Muslim faith who are themselves immigrants or are the children of immigrants to the United States. In their essays, the students grapple with matters of ethnicity, religious prejudice and misunderstanding, and what is termed Islamophobia. The fact of 9/11 and subsequent surveillance and suspicion of Islamic Americans (particularly those hailing from the Middle East and the Asian Subcontinent) have had a profound effect on these students, their families, and their communities of origin.
I believe that parenting is a serious job which must be undertaken consciously; clearly understanding what it entails. Children have a right to have good parents who can be role models for them and who can not only teach them the tools to succeed in this life, but also to take from the treasures of Allah and succeed in the life to come. Whether you like it or not, you are your child's role model. Your choice is to decide what kind of role model you want to be - one that they can look up to or one that they have to look down on. Children listen with their eyes. They don't care what you say until they see what you do. Today, young Muslim parents are anxious to ensure that their children are brought up as practicing Muslims and are a credit to themselves and their parents. This little book is a consolidation of all the things that I have said to people in answer to their questions.
